Well at least Ninfia looks slightly better than before.

Oh...and since when does Ninfia look like a bug type.

Wouldn't it at least have compound eyes?

Looks more like a normal type Eeveelution to me. Maybe a flying type.

Is it too much to ask that we get more Pokemon? Because Ninfia isn't enough.

im gonna saaayyy..... Normal. But I hope the tack "eon" onto the end of it's Eng name. I just love the motif. If I could go back in time I would cruise right past 911 and change Hitmontop to Hitmonchi, after Sonny Chiba. Anyway, yeah, something like Regleon, or Normeon, or Inauspiceon.

Pokemon Rumble U (Spring release), and it's just being revealed now, WHY?

Oh well I guess we don't get anything but Ninfia this month. I guess we have a whole month to go for more information about x and y.

At least February is the shortest month of the year. Still the wait will be long.

I hope it's not a new type. I don't want any new types now, the types are fine the way they are.

But unfortunately that's the way it seems to be looking. If it was just Flying or Bug or something, why would they be secretive about it?

And if they were going to introduce a new type, an Eeveelution would be the perfect way to showcase it.

The new eeveelution looks like it'll be normal to me but what is with it's eyes? It looks like it's blind. It's definately not a bug type though, not sure where that idea came from, and it can't be a flying type because it doesn't have wings.

And since GF were definately going for the "cute" factor with this one, I'm gonna say that it's likely to be terrible in the competitive side of things.

Shaymin, Drifloon, Hoppip, Gyarados...
Shaymin has an alternative form, Sky Forme which has wings, so technically it does.

Drifloon is based of an air balloon.

Hoppip, is like a dandelion which float in the air.

Gyarados might be a flying type but the only flying type move it can learn is bounce so it doesn't really count, in my opinion.

...Furthermore Eevee is supposedly based off a rabit or a fox so it doesn't make much sense that it'll be a flying-type when it's pre-evolution is ground based. Flying-type pokemon either have wings or are based of things that are associated with the sky, as I've already mentioned using your examples.

I do like the bug idea. Can't see it being flying just because no pictures support that. Normal seems most likely with the way it look, fur like a wigglytuff with the same eyes as well. Maybe Ghost(?) just because of the ??? typing. I dunno but if it's a new type I will not be excited for X and Y anymore.

Wonder if Ninfia is a new-type (Maybe Light type Pokémon) There could be a new type because of Xerneas & Yveltal not having their Types revealed yet.

I seriously doubt that Ninfia will be a new type. Why would they create a new type using an Eeveelution, when there have been other types which have been around a lot longer like steel and dragon types which have yet to see an Eeveelution with that type?

I thought there wouldn't be any new Eevee evolutions because the rest of the types wouldn't work (Can you imagine a Ghost or Fighting Eevee evolution?), but this quite a surprise. I wonder what type it is.
 

General Nonsense

Star Glider
So then, on closer inspection, the bows on Nimfia don't look like bows to me...they look to me more like butterflies. I suppose now I see how it could be bug type. Still not a fan, but oh well.
