Nintendo of America has just released Sylveon, Eevee’s newest form. Sylveon, originally named Ninfia in the Japanese version of the game, will be in the two new 3DS games – Pokemon X and Y. One of the more flexible Pokemon in terms of evolution pathways, Sylveon hasn’t been given an element alignment as yet.
Could this mean that there will be an as yet unannounced class of Pokemon? Looking at the video that came with the announcement the skill set includes flying cards as an attack, as well as some energy based attacks. This may suggest a trickster style to the new element to be introduced. Has Pokemon gone too far in extending the class categories? Only time shall tell.
