It's simple. The Kanto Eeveelutions are on the top, the Johto ones are in the middle, and the Sinnoh ones are near the bottom.
Besides, even if we were to use that stupid logic, maybe the new type (if there is one) is weak to/powerful against Electric.

I love how Mankey didn't give the image, but Nick pulls it outta his ass instead.
I also agree that this whole logic bullshit is moreso coincidental than a hint at Sylveon's typing prior t' said information bein' released. Furthermore, the Pokes are ordered left to right by dex number, there's no other reason for it bein' like that... not that Sylveon bein' Flyin' type is utterly outta the question, but I feel that's notably less likely than it bein' either Normal or a new type. The image Nick provided does nothin' to prove or disprove anythin' in particular.
EDIT: Trago actually has a point. No Eeveelution has resisted Jolteon's STAB 'till Leafeon's introduction, but there's not yet been a Ground type. If Sylveon is indeed a new type, it wouldn't be a terrible idea for Jolteon t' be weak to it for whatever reason.
Not that said point has any more merit than the contrary argument of "sylveon is flyin tyep cuz of dis image lol".
Not when you take into account the secrecy and the fact that it's the only one this gen. It looks like it could be Flying, but flying isn't notable enough of a type to merit only one Eeveelution. The only current types that could get away with that are Normal and Dragon. Normal because it's Eevee's type, and Dragon because not only is Dragon hyped up as the most powerful type, but Dragon is the last of the "special types" not covered by the other Eeveelutions. Neither of them are an excuse for the obviously deliberate mystery surrounding the typing (and the fact that it doesn't look like a dragon).It definitely looks like it could be one of the current types.
Dark types are weak to Fighting and Bug attacks. I would know, I only use them all the time.
