With October's worldwide release of 3DS game "Pokemon X" and "Pokemon Y" approaching, the Pokémon Company has lifted the veil in a new variant of long-time favorite Eevee, and it's got a hint of "My Little Pony" about it.
The white, pink and baby blue Sylveon appears with a bow on one of her rabbit-like ears and a long scarf attached by another bow under her chin, but elegant limbs give her an otherwise equine shape.
Sylveon, known as Nifina in Japanese, will be the eighth form that the foundational, furry and fox-like Eevee can evolve into, though the method of coaxing the change has not yet been disclosed.
