Kirlia (Japanese: キルリア Kirlia) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Ralts starting at level 20. It can either evolve into Gardevoir starting at level 30, or, if male, into Gallade when exposed to radiation from a Dawn Stone.

Biology

Physiology

Kirlia has a white body and looks as if it's wearing a tutu. Kirlia has skinny, green legs. Kirlia's hair doesn't block its eyes as much as Ralts's hair does. Kirlia's hair has bangs that reach down to its shoulders and the two red horns have shifted their position, making them look like hair pins.

Gender differences

Kirlia has no physical gender differences, but its evolutionary pattern can depend on gender: only a male Kirlia can evolve into a Gallade, although Kirlia of both genders may become Gardevoir.

Special abilities

Kirlia's abilities are mostly about the same as Ralts's are, only stronger. Whenever Kirlia uses its Psychic abilities, the space around it becomes distorted, creating mirages of nonexistent scenery. Kirlia also has the power to see into the future and create a rip in the dimensions.

Behavior

Kirlia's beauty is said to grow whenever it receives positive feelings from its Trainer. Kirlia like to dance during sunny mornings.

Major appearances

Kirlia first appeared in Jirachi: Wish Maker. Butler used the Emotion Pokémon for a magic act and to fight Absol.

Elijah used a Kirlia in a movie for Lights, Camerupt, Action. The Emotion Pokémon had a "damsel-in-distress" role for the movie it was used in.

Kirlia also appeared in Do I Hear a Ralts? as well as its evolved form, Gardevoir. Both of them sent Jessie, James and Meowth flying when the Rocket Trio cornered Max and Ash's Snorunt while they were hurrying to send Ralts to the Pokémon Center. However, Kirlia and Gardevoir thought that Max was also stealing Ralts, too. When Ralts blocked Kirlia and Gardevoir's Psychic, all hostilities were ignored and the two other Psychic Pokémon left. Kirlia and Gardevoir appeared once more at the near-end of the episode to send James flying (Ralts already launched Jessie and Meowth for posing themselves as a Gardevoir and Kirlia).

Minor appearances

A Kirlia was living in an abandoned mining colony in Fear Factor Phony. Jessie's Wobbuffet fell in love with the Emotion Pokémon.

Two Kirlia appeared in Mutiny in the Bounty!. One appearing in a flashback, being one of Pokémon Hunter J's stolen Pokémon, and the other used by Melodi so Ash and his friends can find out where Pokémon Hunter J and her minions will strike next after Ash's Pikachu, Melodi's Gardevoir and Team Rocket's Meowth were stolen.

Kirlia made an appearance in The Rise of Darkrai as one of the Pokémon attacked by Darkrai and having nightmares. Alicia, Alice's grandmother, treated Kirlia and woke it up, along with Roserade and Luxray.

Zoey was shown to have caught a Kirlia in Double-Time Battle Training!.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
DP020 Kirlia Dawn's Pokédex Kirlia, the Emotion Pokémon. Kirlia uses the horns on its head to amplify its Psychic powers, and when this occurs reality becomes warped, and future events can be seen.
DP155 Kirlia Ash's Pokédex Kirlia, the Emotion Pokémon. Kirlia is able to sense the feelings of its Trainer, and when it becomes happy, it will start to dance.
This concludes the entries from the Diamond & Pearl series.

Trivia

  • Kirlia shares the same species name with Mesprit. They are both known as Emotion Pokémon.
  • Kirlia's number in the Sinnoh Pokédex (Platinum only) and the Almia Browser is the same: 158. 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 Kirlia can learn Will-O-Wisp by breeding, it can't learn it by TM.
  • Despite what several Pokédex entries imply, Kirlia's happiness has no bearing on its stats.

Origin

Kirlia resembles a ballerina.

Name origin

Kirlia's name is derived from Kirlian photography, a special way of taking pictures that supposedly reveals psychic energy auras around subjects.

In other languages

  • German: Kirlia
  • French: Kirlia
  • Korean: 킬리아 Kirlia
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 奇魯莉安 Qí Lǔ Lì Ān - Transliteration of its Japanese name. May also come from "kirlian". 莉安 Lì Ān is also a girl's name.
