So I’m a fan of Eeveevolutions. I’d have to say Eevee and its evolutions are some of my favorite Pokemon in the entire series. And for a long time, since before Pokemon Black and White were released, I’ve had this theory that Game Freak would come up with an eighth Eeveevolution, and it would be Dragon-typed.
If you’ve paid attention to special types in Pokemon generation III and earlier, you’ll know that there are eight special types in these games; fire (Flareon), water (Vaporeon), electric (Jolteon), psychic (Espeon), dark (Umbreon), grass (Leafeon), ice (Glaceon), and dragon.
So I’m anxious to find out the type that Ninfia is supposed to be. I do think the streamers are fitting for a dragon-type; think of Chinese dragons. How else are you supposed to make a quadruped mammal look like a dragon? Furthermore, “Nymph + ia” —> “Ninfia”, and a nymph is a baby dragonfly.
I think Ninfia will be called something like “Ninfeon” in English, because Leafeon was “Leafia” and Glaceon was “Glacia” in Japanese.
Some people have suspected that the scan of Ninfia may be fake, but I was skeptical after a friend of mine said Glameow was fake after it was announced on Serebii, and Glameow turned out to be real. The movie poster for Pikachu and Eevee Friends posted in this imageset seems to suggest otherwise, if you’ll look at the pink bow in the title at the bottom half of the image.
So yeah, let’s see some cool fanart of our 8th Eeveevolution.
