The mini-skirt that Gardevoir had as a Kirlia is now an elegant ballroom gown. Gardevoir has long, slender, white legs underneath the gown. It gives the impression that it is levitating gracefully above the ground. Gardevoir has a red horn on its chest and a flatter horn on its back. Gardevoir's arms are now green and the red fin-like horns it had on its head as Ralts/Kirlia are now gone.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Gardevoir can sense the feelings of people and other Pokémon. It can also see the future clearly.

Trivia

  • Out of the three original stages of Ralts, Gardevoir is the only one that had its name changed when it came to the U.S.
  • The fact that Gardevoir can be male is a frequent topic of discussion among Pokémon forums. Perhaps in response to this, Gallade was created.
  • Gardevoir has a large fanbase due to its appearance resembling that of a female human.
  • Despite its human like appearance, it isn't in the Humanshape egg group. In fact, Gardevoir and Gallade are the most human like Pokémon in the Indeterminate egg group.
  • In My Pokémon Ranch, Gardevoir displays the ability of levitation/flight.
  • Both Gardevoir and Gallade have a red blade sticking out of its chest.

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 it's protective nature to it's 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 "to be required to"). This is reflected on its Dex 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, night").
