The Pokémon Company International is sending a special Valentine's Day treat by officially introducing a new Pokémon that will make its debut in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y this October. The new Pokémon, Sylveon, is a new evolution of Eevee, one of the most beloved Pokémon since it debuted in Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue. When a player has Eevee in its party they can evolve it into one of its seven evolutions, like Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon. Sylveon will be the eighth Eevee evolution. Download the official art, in-game screenshots, and never-before-seen gameplay video of Sylveon in battle using the link below, which also includes an infographic that illustrates all Eevee evolutions spanning the Kanto to the newest, yet-to-be-announced region of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.
