Ready for some Nintendo news that doesn’t have anything to do with this morning’s Nintendo Direct? Good, because The Pokemon Company has a special treat for us in the video above. That’s right this never-before-seen (kinda) Pokemon will make its first appearance in Pokemon X and Y.
Okay, okay. So it’s not really an “all-new” Pokemon. Instead, it’s the eighth evolution of the Eevee, which has been a favorite of mine since it first appeared way back when the Pokemon Red and Blue versions hit the scene. I’m not sure how “evolution” could lead to ribbons, but the Pokemon universe has introduced crazier ideas.
Anyway, the new Eevee evolution has been named Sylveon, and if you scroll down a bit you check out a pretty nifty Eevee infographic detailing all of the possible evolutions this mystical creature is capable of undergoing.
