Just looking, I couldn't guess it's type. Unless somebody who knows enough Japanese can garner from its name what it might be.

The name "Ninfia" is probably a reference to nimbus clouds, so it could be a Flying type, but I'm not willing to say that's certain.

This looks like a really cool Pokémon, can't wait to see it in 3D. :)

It looks like the sort of Pokemon that should evolve with a high Beauty rating. I really can't see how it could be any type other than normal, it doesn't have any obvious hints of anything else.

Or it could evolve from a moon stone, perhaps. I'm guessing Normal-type as well, though Ninfia does sound kind of like 'Nymph', as in like a fairy, so I'll take an option out on flying type.

I'm gonna say bug-type because of the butterfly-like ribbon thingies: give Eevee a ribbon, trade it away, evolves into Nynfeon.

Hmm... I'm leaning toward either a Normal-type (judging by it's fairly plain coloring and design) or a Flying-type (due to above mentions of nimbus clouds and the butterfly-like ribbons). Though a Bug-type isn't impossible either, but it seems to lack Bug-type characteristics, the only thing I see are the butterfly ribbons that could possibly connected it to the Bug-type. Either way, it looks adorable. That rounds up the Eeveelutions to a grand total of eight. I wonder what it'll look like in 3D. Guess we'll know soon enough.

I'm going for the Fighting type because I think that the prefix "Nin" might have been taken from the word "Ninja".
A few related examples: Leafia, Glacia etc.

My money's presently on flying type, due to the sky-blue eyes and assortment of floating/butterfly-shaped ribbons. If that turns out to be the case, then I'm glad that they went with a more interesting design than simply sticking a pair of eagle wings on its back (as I've seen done in countless fan art).

I think flying is indeed the most plausible, though I consider bug a possibility as well (large, round eyes, the butterfly shapes, the ribbons)
It seems a bit too... decorated? to be a normal type

I think it is going to be Normal-type, particularly because there's only one rather than two like usual.

Also, it would be pretty awesome if it was Nin for Nintendo.

I say Flying-type or Normal-type. To me the bows/feathers look like they could be used as wings.Also as someone above mentioned , the name might derive from nimbus cloud or maybe even nymph.
Either way it's rather cute.

I think its name came from nymph, not the myth one
but another meaning:
- young girl, especially one who inspires lustful feelings
- (attractive young woman): lolita, nymphet, nymphette

Based on Ninfia's coloring (which looks surprisingly similar to Happiny/Chansey/Blissey), I'm going to speculate that this is a normal-type eeveelution. It's just too...well...cheerful and cute to NOT be a normal-type.

It's apparently the Eeveelution with the lowest weight, which makes flying seem likely to me. Pure flying, please. No more of this primary-normal-secondary-flying nonsense.

I actually had received word from someone who works at GameFreak that there was going to be a Pure Flying Eevee evolution. This confirms the statement.

I'm leading towards it being a Poison-type. It's pink, and the only other type I associate with that color is Psychic, (Espeon already exists) and nin could stand for ninja. Ninjas are often associated with Poison in this series.
