Sylveon (Japanese: ニンフィア Nymphia) is a Fairy-type Pokémon.
It evolves from Eevee when leveled up knowing a Fairy-type move and having at least two Affection hearts in Pokémon-Amie. It is one of Eevee's final forms, the others being Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, and Glaceon.
Sylveon is a quadruped, mammalian Pokémon covered primarily in pale cream-colored fur with pinkish feet, ears, and tail. There are two bows on it, one on its left ear and one around its neck, from which two feelers adorn it. The bows are pale cream with pinkish centers, while the feelers are pale cream with pinkish and blue tips. It sends a soothing aura from these feelers to calm fights, and will also use them to "hold hands" with its Trainer. It has short, slender legs and small paws with three visible toes on each foot. Its eyes are blue with white pupils and no visible sclera. When its mouth is open, two pointed teeth can be seen on its upper jaw. Its furry pinkish tail is slightly curved in a crescent shape.
- According to a Ken Sugimori interview with the Famitsu magazine, Sylveon was designed by Atsuko Nishida.
- Sylveon is the only cross-generational evolutionary relative introduced in Generation VI.
Like the other Eeveelutions, Sylveon displays several characteristics of various mammalian creatures.
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.
