New Eeveelution's English name revealed as Sylveon

Pokemon X & Y — 14 February, 2013

The new Eevee evolution revealed on Tuesday has been given an English name. It follows the regular -eon pattern of the rest of the Eevee family and is named Sylveon. Still no type or other details just yet.

The most likely etymology for the name is sylva, Latin for forest, or sylvan, a a mythical deity or spirit of the woods. This would perhaps tie in with the legendary Xerneas.

A short trailer has also been released, watch the video below.
