Gardevoir (Japanese: サーナイト Sirknight) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Kirlia starting at level 30. It is one of Ralts's final forms.

Biology

Physiology

The tutu that Gardevoir had as a Kirlia is now an elegant ballroom gown with a green underside. Its ‘hair’ style has also changed, with ‘curls’ down the sides of its head. Gardevoir has long, slender, white legs underneath the gown. Gardevoir's arms are now green and the red fin-like horns it had on its head before evolving have now moved to its chest and its back. Gardevoir also has spikes to the side of its face, and a band of green extending on its chest to the centermost fin.

Gender differences

Gardevoir is a female only Pokemon. Male Gardevoirs were thought to have existed, but it was later discovered that they're actually disguised Gallades.

Special abilities

Gardevoir can sense the feelings of people and other Pokémon. It can also able to see the future clearly. Gardevoir has the psychokinetic power to distort the dimensions and create a small black hole, in order to protect its Trainer. Apparently, Gardevoir does not feel the pull of gravity because it supports itself with psychic power.

Behavior

Gardevoir are known widely for their loyalty to their trainers, even to the point of sacrificing their own life for them. In the wild they go in family groups, caring heavily for their young.

Trivia

  • Gardevoir's Attack and Special Attack are the reverse of Gallade's.
  • Out of the three original stages of Ralts, Gardevoir is the only one that had its name changed in the English version.
  • Despite its human-like appearance, it isn't in the Humanshape egg group.
  • In My Pokémon Ranch, Gardevoir displays the ability of levitation/flight. With the Trace ability, this is possible by copying Levitate. It may also be the result of Gardevoir's ability to ignore normal gravitational pull and float using its psychic abilities.
  • Gardevoir's number in the Sinnoh Pokédex (Platinum only) and the Almia Browser is the same: 159. This makes it and its evolution family one of only five families of Pokémon (comprising thirteen Pokémon altogether) to have the same numbers in more than one Pokédex-like listing.
  • Although Gardevoir can learn Will-O-Wisp by breeding, it can't learn it by TM.
  • Gardevoir has the third highest Special Attack of all non-legendary Psychic-types, behind Alakazam and Espeon.

Origin

Gardevoir resembles a ballroom dancer. Its exaggerated head with minimal facial expression and an overall frail, featureless physique could also be attributed to anesama ningyou, a style of traditional Japanese paper doll. Considering its protective nature to its trainer, it could also be based on a guardian angel.

Name origin

Gardevoir's name may be a combination of garde (French for "guard") and devoir (French for "duty"). This is reflected on its Pokédex data, which explains how Gardevoir will protect its Trainer even at the cost of its own life. Its Japanese name may be taken to mean さあ、ナイト saa, naito ("come, knight") or 'Sir Knight'.
