I speculate that it's going to be a flying type, there's definitely a high possibility of it. I'm about to explain why among some other things in a very very long post.

As of now, I personally believe the two biggest possibilities for Ninfia’s type to be Flying, or New. I would not be surprised if it turned out Normal or Dragon as well but those have a lot of evidence and theories against them. Especially in “Normals” case.

Before I go into what I’m about to get into, let me try to counter some theories. First off, Normal. This one isn’t too far out there however there’s still very little evidence to go off of it. All there is is “It just looks like a Normal type.” and while that indeed is true, when you really break that down. What qualities make it a normal type? It’s pink? So far, I have not heard anything else beyond “It looks like a normal type”. I realize that at this stage going off of looks is the only way to really speculate. But there’s still no basis to it beyond “It just looks like it.” Next is bug. Now, this one I have actually seen more than you’d think. Some people are being silly about it but others seem to legitimately think it might be a bug type. Okay look, first of all, the evidence that it’s name is “Nympheon” and that Nymph’s had something to do with bug er rather. This point is instant rubbish as the name “Nympheon” is unofficial and thus proves squat for anything except that people are gullible. Also, the eyes. People have been saying it’s eyes are insect-like. No, no they are not. They are rounder, and a bit bigger than some of the other eevee’s, however they follow a similar colouring pattern as Leaf, Glace, and Esp. That is to say, a coloured sclera (Sclera is the white part of your eye, in Ninfia’s case it is light blue) and white pupils. Finally, just going off of how Ken and the rest of those guys on the Pokémon development team design Pokémon, I do not think this is how they would design a bug type at all. Even a mammalian one.

Okay, now onwards to this Flying type hypothesis. For starters, consider the following.

    [2/11/2013 8:42:39 PM] Erufuuuun: Ninon is a sheer fabric of silk, rayon, or nylon made in a variety of tight smooth weaves or open lacy patterns and/or open mesh-like appearance. It is described as very delicate or lightweight and is sometimes referred to as “French tergal”. Available in a variety of solid colors and tone-on-tone woven vertical stripes. Some ninon fabrics have embroidered borders. Pronounced “nee-no”. Because the fabric is made with high twist filament yarns, it has a crisp hand. End uses include evening wear and curtains.

My good friend over at Ask-Fennekin brought this up to me yesterday. He pointed out Ninfia’s name may have a possible link to this. There are things to consider in this bit of very detrimental evidence. First off, Ninfia and Ninon both start with “Nin”. When one looks at Ninfia’s full name and compares it to another eeveelution they would find it shares the same ending suffix (The eeveelution in question being Leafeon, who’s Japanese name is Leafia). This show’s the the entire ending suffix “fia” is merley there to link it to the other eeveelutions or at least give it some sort of original sounding name. It does NOT mix in with the meaning of “Nin” at all. Nin and Fia should be treated as two different words here.

Now, moving on to what NINfia’s relation to the french fabric NINon means. I am taking it as huge evidence to it being a flying type. To start, lets verify the authenticity of how true this name meaning is. We can do so by analyzing the facts present in the short description of Ninon. The two things to note about Ninon here are. “It is french” We already know, or at least are on a very strong lead, that the new region is set in france. It is highly suspicious that the name meaning also happens to relate to a certain FRENCH fabric. Next, Ninon is described as “Very lightweight”. Did you guys catch on to the fact that Ninfia is the lightest eeveelution? There’s too many coincidences, and like Commissioner Gordon said to Blake in The Dark Knight Rises “You’re a detective now, son. You’re not allowed to believe in coincidence anymore.”

So, alright, Ninfia’s name comes from a very light french cloth. But what exactly does this prove in it being a flying type? To be honest with you, the direction it points to flying type is still barely and it is still very subjective. However, the point of it is, the cloth is very light, and thus it would flow easily in the wind, Ninfia itself is a very lightweight Pokémon. Perhaps it doesn’t NEED wings to fly. We already know this is true with other Pokémon such as Gyarados (pbbbtth), Shaymin (Do NOT bring up the fact that it’s antler things make it fly because it can be seen using it’s legs to propel through the air), Drifloon/Drifblim (who actually use their weight to fly, much in the same way Ninfia will most likely fly), and the Hoppip line.

Furthermore, the counter argument “It doesn’t look like a flying type cause its colours are not derivative of one” is moot. If one were to look at a list of flying types they would find only very very few Flying types are and furthermore the only pure flying type (which would make Ninfia the second pure flying), Tornadus, does not have any visible light blue on him. The fact that Ninfia has very visible colours of light blue heightens the fact, not to mention. There’s the counter counter argument that if Ninfia were to be all light blue, it would be too similar to Glaceon who is already light blue.

Now here’s just one very last point. This one’s very small, and is the most subjective thing on this whole explanation but I’ll bother you with it anyways since I’ve already taken so much time explaining this stuff. You could take Ninfia’s Bows and Ribbon’s and attribute those also to Kite’s! There placements definetly make them appear to be bows, however, this does not mean they only need to symbolize one thing. They appear to be bows, and I do not dispute this at all. It’s very clear from their placement they are bows. Along with that, their connections to the ribbons also make them sort of appear like a kind of kite as well. It’s just something to consider.

You may want to merge this topic with the "eevee?" topic. I wasn't sure if a post this big was allowed in a non-RP topic.
