Orchestral. Like any other ballet, there may be piano versions, but I don't think there is one by Debussy. Is there?

I see. but from what I read, it was never orchestrated by debussy. so which one is correct?

I'm pretty sure it is not an original piano piece. But it seems to have a confusing history, see this interesting discussion on IMSLP:
