Pokémon X & Y: ‘Ninfia’ is Called ‘Sylveon’ in English, Here’s a Trailer

Remember Ninfia, the new “Eeveelution” from Pokémon X & Y that was revealed earlier this week? Turns out it’s got an official English name, too: “Sylveon.”

The name is a reference to the sylph, a fairy-like air elemental creature from Western mythology, which despite the fact that it hasn’t had its type officially revealed would seem to suggest it’s a Flying-type or Ghost-type Pokémon.

There’s a new trailer as well as a bunch of screenshots and official Sugimori-style artwork after the break!
