Dark and Steel were added simply to iron out a few bugs

You'd think a Normal type Eeveelution would look a lot more like Eevee, with the same color scheme and all. Why would Eevee change so drastically from brown to pink and stayed Normal?

*looks at Feebas, Milotic, Remoraid, Octillary, Clamperl, Gorebyss, and Huntail*
Yeah, that's a really crappy argument.

Also, a Normal type Eeveelution would just be plain boring and very anti-climactic.

You have to be really uncreative to reach this conclusion. There are a huge number of ways that a Normal-type Eeveelution could be made unique, interesting, and exciting. For all we know, it'll have something as drastic and defining as Multi-Type or Wonder Guard or some ability that lets it get STAB with everything or some function that forms its base stat placement based on how Eevee has been EV trained. You have absolutely no idea. "It'll be boring" is the worst possible argument against a Normal-type Eeveelution.

Sylveon may come from Parthenos Sylvia, a type of Butterfly.

I find it much more likely that Sylveon's name, like the name of that butterfly, is just derived from Sylvan, a descriptor commonly used to refer to mythological woodland fey such as nymphs and faeries.

Look at dem eyes. They're huge, and bug-like.

Almost all of the Eeveelutions have eyes that look like that.

The bows look like butterflies.

Pretty much all bows do look like butterflies, yes.

Don't mind Twilight_Sonata. I think GameFreak could come out and openly state that Sylveon means anything they like and he'd still insist that it means "sylvan".

Your name connection to butterflies - in all languages! - is actually something I didn't know, so props for that. Bug is pushing forward a bit... whatever the case, Coro Coro has a good chance of clearing it up whenever it gets leaked anyway, so we'll see.

That's your "proof" for not Flying type?

Rayquaza doesn't have wings either.
Charizard is a dragon. Why isn't he Dragon type? Also, Charizard has "lizard" as part of his name. No WAY he's Flying type.
What about the Kami Trio? None of them have wings yet they're all Flying.

I could go on.

I'll continue to suggest that it most likely comes from Sylvan until somebody can actually give an argument against it that isn't completely stupid.

All of those things cept charizard are based on flying myth/legends clearly. Slyveon is just a cutesy thing, dont see why it would be flying
