Gallade (Japanese: エルレイド Erlade) is a dual-type Psychic/Fighting Pokémon.

It evolves from male Kirlia when exposed to radiation from a Dawn Stone. It is one of the final forms of Ralts.

Biology

Physiology

The mini-skirt that Gallade had as a Kirlia has disappeared, though his body is hourglass-shaped and his lower torso almost resembles a kilt. Gallade has white legs that are wider than his counterpart, Gardevoir's. Like Gardevoir, he has a red horn protruding from his chest and another red horn sticking out of his back, but these are both smaller, the same length, and sharper. Unlike Gardevoir, however, Gallade's arms have blade-like protrusions at the elbows, and his head is shaped somewhat like a gladiator's helmet. Gallade also happens to be a darker shade of green than the other members of his evolutionary line. Gallade, like his counterpart Gardevoir, has spikes to the back of his eyes.

Gender differences

Gallade is male-only, evolving from a male Kirlia when exposed to the Dawn Stone.

Special abilities

Gallade, thanks to its arm blades, which he can withdraw and extend to two lengths, can learn a variety of sword-like attacks in several types. These include Leaf Blade, Night Slash, and the rarely known Psycho Cut. As with other Template:Type2 Pokémon, Gallade can summon Earthquakes, and launch rocks at his opponents (in the forms of Stone Edge, Rock Slide or Rock Tomb). Since Gallade is a fully-evolved Pokémon, he can learn Hyper Beam or Giga Impact.

Behavior

Gallade are masters of courtesy and swordsmanship, defending the weak from harm.

Habitat

Gallade hide up in very tall trees, waiting for trouble to ensue. When the time is right, they leap from their homes to forewarn civilians or fight enemies.

Gallade made a minor appearance in the 10th movie, The Rise of Darkrai. He led Alice, Ash, Dawn and Brock to the area that Baron Alberto believed Darkrai had first "infected". He reappeared some time later.

Trivia

  • Gallade's Attack and Special Attack are the reverse of Gardevoir's.
  • Gallade's number in the Sinnoh Dex in Pokémon Platinum and the Almia Browser is the same: 160. This makes him and his evolution family one of only four families of Pokémon (comprising eleven Pokémon altogether) to have the same numbers in more than one Pokédex-like listing.
  • Gallade is the last Template:Type2 Pokémon in National Dex order.
  • Gallade has the same weight as Blaziken, another dual-typed Template:Type2 Pokémon with the mentioned type being their secondary type.
  • Gallade is the only pokemon that is able to learn Leaf Blade naturally that is not of the Grass (type).

Origin

The single fin on Gallade's head is reminiscent of the Murmillo Helmet worn by murmillo-class Roman gladiators or the Corinthian Helmet (with a Horsehair Crest) which is worn by Greek Hoplites. Therefore, Gallade may be based on a Roman gladiator or a Greek hoplite.

Name origin

Gallade may be a combination of gladiator, gallant, and blade. It may also be a reference to Sir Galahad. Erlade might be a combination of Earl (meaning chieftain), or elbow, and blade, referring to the sword-like appendages on its arms.

In other languages

  • German: Galagladi - From Galan (worshipper) and gladiator.
  • French: Gallame - From gallant and lame (blade).
  • Korean: 엘레이드 Ellade
  • Chinese: 艾路雷朵
