Amidst the deluge of announcements from today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, Nintendo quietly unveiled another brand new Pokémon from Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, the upcoming 3DS installments of the popular monster catching franchise.
The Pokémon in question is Sylveon, another possible evolution in the Eevee line. Sylveon is the sixth new monster to be revealed from Pokémon X and Y, joining the starting trio of Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie, as well as the legendary duo Xerneas and Yveltal. Sylveon also marks the first Pokémon from the games to be directly related to a previous monster, which seems to indicate that other old favorites may also receive a new evolutionary strain in the upcoming titles.
Nintendo has been coy revealing information about the new fox-like Pokémon, so its typing is currently unknown. Until we learn more, we’ll have to content ourselves with this brief trailer, which highlights some of Sylveon’s move set.
