Talk:Gallade (Pokémon)

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.

Altered some of the information to make Gardevoir less confusing. Gardevoir is a feminine yet gender neutral evolution of Kirlia. - unsigned comment from Melinarat (talkcontribs)

Gardevoir is my favorite pokemon, and I like Gallade, but, i'm still disapointed with his look. To big of a waste. - unsigned comment from Gardevoir (talkcontribs)

Quick question, is Gallade's mouth the beak-like part of his head or the semi-visible line below his eye? - unsigned comment from Ytlow (talkcontribs)

Pretty sure it's the latter. -- Jioruji Derako.> 17:14, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Think maybe Gallade's English name came from Sir Galahad? Just a random thought. - unsigned comment from Shrikeswind (talkcontribs)

Image

a:File:GalladeAnime.jpg This is an image from the anime. I can't use it because it hasn't been uploaded yet and I can't upload it because I don't know if it is legal to use it since it is from serebii.net. So someone who knows what to do, please upload this picture or a better picture so we can use it in the article.Pokemaniac102 07:02, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Well, Serebii would certainly not like it very much hotlinked. TTEchidnaGSDS! 10:13, 25 December 2007 (UTC)
Well, nothing better at serebii.net. Nothing good at unown.un.funpic.org.Pokemaniac102 22:18, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Link?

who thinks Gallade looks like Link from Zelda?? MAGNEDETHTALK 22:20, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Quite Possible, colorwise that is.Pokemaniac102 22:23, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

i think its quite a stretch, i just dont think it should be in the Trivia section MAGNEDETHTALK 22:28, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

I don't really want it's to be in trivia. It way more than a stretch. Probably many lightyears long.Pokemaniac102 22:35, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

uh...what? MAGNEDETHTALK 22:37, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

You said it was quite a stretch. It is way more than that. A stretch that couldn't fit inside the universe.Pokemaniac102 22:39, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

no, i got what you said, you just had a few too many errors to understand it. that being said, should it be taken out of trivia then? MAGNEDETHTALK 22:59, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Yes. There is little resemblance between them and it is unlikely that the idea of how the pokémon should look was taken from Link.Pokemaniac102 23:00, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

its almost to say that Octillery looks like an Octork, but, unless things are really really close, i think they shouldnt be allowed. MAGNEDETHTALK 23:03, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Add to Trivia

Wouldn't Gallade be the first Fighting pokemon to learn a Ghost-Type move through Baby? It can learn Confuse Ray and Destiny Bond, so maybe we can add it to Trivia? - unsigned comment from Nidolord500 (talkcontribs)

..not really. I mean, if it was the only Fighting-type to learn a Ghost-type move, THEN it'd be notable, but otherwise, not really. Tina δ 15:39, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Patriotic Gladiator

Gallade is based off of a gladiator. Gladiators traditionally hail from Rome, Italy. Italy's flag's colors are green, white, and red, as are Gallades. Coincidence or not, I believe it deserves to be in the Trivia section. - unsigned comment from Starleged (talkcontribs)

It's already in the Origin section. And the flag color is speculation, so I guess there's no need to add it anymore. Ҝəυzø8 03:36, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
Ralts, Kirlia, and Gardevoir have the same colors, yet they aren't based off of Italian fighting styles. R.A. Hunter B. 17:10, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Hourglass-shaped? Kilt?

Ok, i'm not sure what hourglasses the writer of the Physiology is use to seeing, but that is not a hourglass shaped figure.

Being this is for a wiki on a kid oriented show, i'll use the pg talk on what its body looks like.

If anything, it's body looks like a "novelty" smoking "accessory." Similar to the one that got Tommy Chong some legal trouble.

Heck even the bottle from "I Dream of Jeannie" looks more like its body then a hourglass.

There is no way that looks like a hour glass. Black Widows have an Hourglass in its Physiology but Gallade doesn't.

Also I fail to see how its lower body looks like a kilt. I don't see them every day, but i know what a kilt look like and Gallade does not look like it has a kilt down there. Google Kilt and look at the first image only (the others are NSFW.) Yami 12:19, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

It does have a rough hourglass shaped body.... and you kinda made the description a bit worse, while a bit better. It was fine as it was, and all you had to do was a few minor tweaks, not redo the whole freaking thing. R.A. Hunter Blade 20:48, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Male

Since Gallade is male only, why does the article say "it" instead of "he"? Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 17:00, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

I've been wondering that, and I think we did that while ago, but somebody said to keep "it". I might be wrong, but I thought we did something like that. R.A. Hunter Blade 17:45, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Trivia

Is it really notable that a Pokémon can't learn an Egg move via TM? I mean, if a Pokémon can learn a move via TM, why make it an egg move anyway? That just seems like common sense to me. Yes, it is available as a TM, but just because Gallade can't use it doesn't mean it should be notable that it can learn it from its father who can learn the TM. I'm sure Gallade isn't the only Pokémon to be in that position.--PhantomJunkie 17:48, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

Name

It's name could also be based on Salad, you know its legs look like leeks. The Ralts evolutionary family have also been refereed to plants. ♢ DeadUniverse Hello! ♢ 20:57, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

They do resemble leeks, though it may (or may not) be coincidental. Also, when were they compared to plants? That would certainly shed new light on Gallade's pre-evolution Kirlia's similarities to Cosmo from Sonic X (which for some bizzare reason is not mentioned anywhere in Kirlia's trivia section) XVuvuzela2010X 21:12, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Name origin

Maybe Gallade's name came from arabic " جلاد " ( spells Jallade ) and that means "Executioner"
