Ralts (Japanese: ラルトス Ralts) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves into Kirlia at level 20; which may evolve into Gardevoir at level 30, or, if male, into Gallade when exposed to a Dawn Stone.

Biology

Physiology

Ralts's eyes seen from below

Ralts has a white body. Its legs give it the appearance of wearing a dress. Ralts has a green "helmet" that has a red horn on the front and one on the back. A Ralts's eyes are normally covered by its "helmet", but a view from the proper angle will reveal a pair of melancholy eyes that look similar to the ones its evolved forms and Roserade have. Despite the fact that Ralts and its evolutions resemble humans, they somehow bear a closer relationship to Template:Type2 Pokémon than with other humanoid Pokémon such as Mime Jr.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Ralts can use its horns to sense the emotions of Pokémon and people. The abilities that Ralts has in battle are similar to what most Template:Type2 Pokémon would have. Ralts is one of the few Pokémon that can learn Magical Leaf.

Behavior

Ralts is a timid Pokémon that will hide if it senses hostility, but becomes a little braver if it senses happy feelings and optimism from others. If its trainer is in a cheerful mood, this Pokémon grows cheerful and joyous in the same way. If its horns capture the warm feelings of people or Pokémon, its body warms up slightly.

Habitat

Ralts tend to keep away from humans, considering that they don't usually like being around negative feelings.

Diet

In the anime

Ralts in the anime

Major appearances

Ralts debuted in the anime in the episode Do I Hear a Ralts?. Max found one that was very sick and decided to prove his abilities by taking responsibility for it. With the help of Ash's Snorunt, he rushed it to the nearest Pokémon Center. He later promised to return for Ralts when he is eligible to be a Trainer.

Minor appearances

A Ralts was living with some party-loving psychic Pokémon in an abandoned mining town in Fear Factor Phony.

Trivia

  • Ralts' number in the Sinnoh Pokédex (Platinum only) and the Almia Browser is the same: 157. 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.
  • Ralts' evolution family is one of only three evolution families to have a branch evolution in the second evolutionary event, and the only one whose base level was not introduced in Generation I.
  • Ralts' Pokémon Trozei! sprite is the only one where its eyes are visible. However in Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, one can see them if one were to view Ralts from below in the Trainer Memo, however it is not a sprite.
  • Although Ralts can learn Will-O-Wisp by breeding, it can't learn it by TM.
  • Ralts is the only Pokémon that has 198 as its base stat total.

Origin

Ralts' appearance seems to be based slightly on that of a young child, following the theory that young children can sense feelings easier and more thoroughly than adults. It could also be based off of the spirits of dead children.

Name origin

Ralts' name may be a partial anagram of astral, as in astral body, missing only another "a", as its other language names seem to follow this as well. It may also be a play on the word waltz, a type of dance; the entire Gardevoir evolutionary family appears to have several similarities to dancers. It is also somewhat similar to relates, referring to the way it will only relate to kind trainers.
