Sylveon (Japanese: ニンフィア Nymphia) is a Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It evolves from Eevee when leveled up knowing a Fairy-type move and having at least two levels of Affection in the 3DS games, or high friendship in Generation VIII. It is one of Eevee's final forms, the others being Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, and Glaceon.

Biology

Sylveon is a quadruped, mammalian Pokémon covered with pale cream-colored fur with pink feet, ears, and tail. It has light blue eyes, long ears with blue interiors and thicker fur, a tiny nose, and two stray tufts of fur on top of its head. There are two bows on its body: one at the base of its left ear and one on its neck. Each bow is pale cream with a pink center and trails a pair of ribbon-like feelers. The feelers are pale cream with light blue tips. Before the tip of each feeler is a pink and then a dark blue stripe. It has slender legs with small, three-toed paws and a fluffy, slightly curved tail.

Sylveon's ribbon-like feelers emit a soothing aura. When hunting, it swirls its feelers as a distraction while the aura weakens feelings of hostility in its prey. It will also wrap its feelers around the arm of its Trainer, which allows it to read their feelings.

Other appearances

Sylveon appears as a trophy in the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game.

Trophy information

Sylveon is one of Eevee's various final evolutions. It has a lot of great attacks to use in battle, but it actually seems to be a peace-loving sort of Pokémon. Case in point, it can completely stop the flow of battle by moving its ribbonlike feelers in a way that charms its opponents into not wanting to fight anymore.

Trivia

Origin

In contrast to the rest of the Eeveelutions' pointed ears, Sylveon's ears are large and rounded, giving it a resemblance to jackrabbits. Fairies were thought to be particularly active under the light of the full moon; because of this and the jackrabbit association, Sylveon could be based on the mythical Asian moon rabbit. The moon rabbit is often portrayed as a companion of the Chinese moon goddess Chang'e, who is often depicted wearing a robe adorned in many ribbons. In addition, Sylveon's tail has some resemblance to the tail of the viscacha. It also has a mix of other mammalian traits, such as those of cats and foxes.

Name origin

Sylveon may be a combination of sylph, a mythological creature described as invisible beings of the air, or sylvan, a word referring to an association with woodlands or forests (where fairies are often depicted), and eon (an immeasurably long period of time, possibly referring to how long evolution takes naturally). Eon is a suffix all Eevee evolutions share and was Eevee's English prototype name.

Nymphia is derived from nymph, a deity existing in Greek Mythology associated with a particular location or landform.
