Nintendo's ever-popular Pokémon franchise of video games and releated merchandise has crossed the span of entire separate centuries to remain among its foremost properties. The newest games in the series, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, are set for a worldwide release in October 2013. In the meantime, Nintendo has been having fun trickling out details for the fandom.

In the morning hours of Valentine's Day for North Americans, the official Pokémon account on Twitter announced a “gift” via tweet to followers, in the form of a fist look at new pokémon Sylveon, an evolution of Eevee, a long-time popular Normal-type pokémon famed for its ability to evolve into differing species of the player's choice. The tweet linked to an official Pokémon website page all about Sylveon and related informaton for Pokémon X and Y.

There also exists a first-look video on YouTube of Sylveon, posted around the same time, showing the character rendered in three-dimensional gameplay showing off some of its movements and even a few attacks. Some gaming writers have already begun speculating as to the full nature of Sylveon, and what choices Nintendo has made in how this new pokémon is characterized. The official Pokémon Twitter account has stated that they will reveal Sylveon's name in different languages throughout the day, with other information sure to come in the future as well.
