Ninfia revealed for Pokemon X and Y

My new favourite eevelution. Seeing that they haven't told us the type (this probably isn't true but) this might be a new type or something to do with that double helix :mrgreen:

O OH! If that is the best Gen 6 has to offer in Pokemon design, then Gen 6 is screwed,
well done Game Freak for making the first and only bad eeve-loution.

Well it's in Corocoro, so it's real unlike that worm and bird pokemon magazine image. I like this design, though it reminds me of a Eevee and Victini cross breed for some reason ._.

Are you implying that Leafeon was good?

I for one like the design for Ninfia. I wonder what it's English name will end up being, or even it's type. Looks to me like it'll be a flying type.

I'm expecting this eeveelution may be achieved by the DNA splicer explaining the DNA helix on the japanese title. there already been more calls for fusion since black2 and white2 maybe game freak has answered the call.

Well... it doesn't even compare to past eeve forms.

It looks a bit like Milotic and Victini though, it's a shame it looks nowhere near as good as them.

How can you say that about this adorable pokemon that seems to have a thing for bow ties?!

They actually seem more like barrettes.

It's just sooo uber CUTE looking, they need to balance it out by bringing out a Gothic looking Ghost Eveelution or something.

Thanks for the votes everyone.

Personally I think the bows are a bit much but I like it otherwise.

Anyone think it'll be a new type of pokemon?

I think Ninfia looks amazing! One of my favourite Eeveeloutions. Judging by the design with the flowing ribbon like parts of its body and its pink and cream colouring it must be flying or normal type. I would probably say flying type.

What I find interesting in that picture, is that Ninfia has some shine effects on it... Too early to have that as a shiny pokémon (since it would mean seeing the normal form)...

I think that's just to denote that it's new...not that it was obvious to begin with.

I'm betting Normal type, doesn't really emit the characteristics you'd expect of a Flying type (like, say, wings), and looks more of a contest-esque Pokémon with a colour scheme similar to lots of past Normnal types.

Either way, I like it. Looks elegant and sophisticated.

That's a funny way to spell Flareon.
