Sylveon (ニンフィア Ninfia) is a Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI. It is one of the eight possible evolutions for Eevee.

Biology

Physiology

Sylveon is a quadruped mammalian Pokémon with white-cream colored fur covering most of its slender body. The top of its head is a vibrant shade of pink, and it has long pink rabbit-like ears with dark blue insides. Sylveon has a short, blunt cat-like muzzle and a small black nose. Sylveon has two pink and white bow-shaped features -- one on its right ear, and one around its and neck. Attached to the bow-like features are scarf-like appendages with pink and blue tips that curl around Sylveon's body. It has four slender vulpine-like legs and small dainty pink-tipped paws and feet with three visible toes on each. Sylveon has two large blue eyes with white pupils, and two pointed teeth on its upper jaw, seen when its mouth is open. It has a fluffy pink tail that curves inward slightly to form a crescent shape, similar to a dog's tail.

The Shiny variation of Sylveon has inverse coloration, with blue and red fur (replacing the pink patchesand the blue in its ears), and reddish-pink eyes.

Behavior

Sylveon is a kind and gentle Pokémon. It uses its ribbon-like feelers to hold hands with its trainer and walk alongside them. It can bring even the most intense battles to a halt by using its feelers to exude an aura of peace and tranquility, causing those near it to lose their fighting spirit. Its movements are graceful and fluid, making it appear almost weightless.

Natural abilities

Sylveon can possess the Ability Cute Charm, which may cause the opposing Pokémon to be infatuated if it physically attacks it and is the opposite gender. In Dream World, Sylveon may have the ability Pixilate, which turns all Normal-type moves used by the Pokémon into Fairy-type moves.

Evolution

Eevee evolves into Sylveon when leveled up knowing a Fairy-type move, and gaining at least two Affection hearts in Pokémon-Amie.

Anime

Sylveon anime

Sylveon in the anime.

Sylveon first appeared in the short film PK25.

Sylveon also appeared Kindergarten Chaos! which belonged to a woman named Penelope. In the episode, it battles against Ash's Froakie in which it wins after using the move Draining Kiss on Froakie, who had already been hit by Attract earlier in the battle. Sylveon, along with Pikachu, is later captured by Team Rocket and rescued by Ash and Randell. It was last seen with its trainer waving goodbye to Ash and his friends. Valerie used a Sylveon against Ash's Talonflame during the Gym battle. Serena's Eevee evolved into Sylveon during a tag battle at a dance party.

Trivia

  • Sylveon's classification of species as an "Intertwining Pokémon" is almost the same as the red thread that holds two or more person's relationship. Hence, its ribbons serves the same purpose. Based on its Pokémon X's PokéDex's data, it uses its "ribbons" to create peace amongst fighters and serves as their 'mediator'.
  • It is the lightest Eeveelution.
  • Sylveon is the first Fairy-type Pokémon known.
  • Despite having a gender ratio of 8 males to 1 female, it has a very feminine appearance.
  • Sylveon is the only cross-generation Eeveelution not to be introduced as a pair with another Eeveelution.

Origin

Like all Eeveelutions, Sylveon is based on various mammalian creatures such as vulpine, feline, and canines alike. Its traits are most similar to a feline or a vulpine, such as its slender vulpine-like legs and feline muzzle, but it has rabbit-like ears and a tail similar to a canine.

Etymology

Sylveon's name likely comes from the word "sylvan" meaning "of the forest", due to legends of fairies residing in forests, and "eon". It might also include "sylph" a mythological spirit of the air.

Its Japanese name "Nymphia", (translated from "Ninfia") is based off from the nymph, a fairy-like deity that resides in certain landforms. It's feminine appearance can relate to the nymphs, who are female deities. Another name for the nymph can also be sylph, which relates to the English name of Sylveon.
