History

As a Ralts

Gardevoir is Diantha's only known Pokémon. It is able to Mega Evolve into Mega Gardevoir. Gardevoir was first seen fighting against Magnus's Absol in Brackish Town, where it used its speed to completely avoid taking any damage before defeating it, doing so without needing to Mega Evolve. Later Gardevoir battled against Pikachu, and was able to completely outmatch its opponent again in terms of speed and power. Before it could win, Gardevoir was captured by Team Rocket who attempted to flee with it. However Diantha followed and Mega Evolved Gardevoir who easily escaped its captors and sent them blasting off.

It was seen in a flashback in Mega Revelations!, and it also was seen in a fantasy in Summer of Discovery!.

It was revealed to have evolved from a Ralts in Battling Into the Hall of Fame! and to have been with Diantha since she was young, as it appeared with her on a photo in the Pokémon Summer Camp Hall of Fame.

Diantha and Gardevoir

In Championing a Research Battle!, Diantha used Gardevoir to battle Ash's Greninja. Although Gardevoir initially held the upper hand, it eventually had to Mega Evolve to keep up with Greninja's unique transformation. When Greninja perfected its new form, it overpowered Gardevoir, but passed out from the resulting strain. Gardevoir was then targeted by Team Rocket again, but easily sent them blasting off. It then dropped to its knees in exhaustion, to which Diantha thanked it for a job well done and recalled it.

It reappeared in A Towering Takeover! with Diantha trying to protect Lumiose City citizens from Team Flare's attack. It appeared again in Coming Apart at the Dreams!, Rocking Kalos Defenses!, and Forming a More Perfect Union! to protect the Kalos region from Team Flare and assisted in the battle to destroy the Giant Rock.

It appeared again in Till We Compete Again!, during a flashback.

Personality and characteristics

Gardevoir's Gardevoirite

Gardevoir is Diantha's only known Pokémon. It is able to Mega Evolve into Mega Gardevoir. She debuted in Chespin Sows the Seeds of Change in the Lysandre Café with its Trainer, where Diantha had it Mega Evolve to make Lysandre back off from attacking Trevor, Shauna, and Tierno. It later reappeared to battle Chalmers's Dragalge and multiple Skrelp.

In Changing Gengar, Gardevoir was used to battle against Malva and her Braixen. Braixen starts the battle with Magic Room, surrounding them both in a giant sphere that isolates them from the outside. Malva notes that her plan was to use Magic Room to try and prevent Gardevoir from using Mega Evolution, only to find that move has no effect on Mega Stones. Despite this, Malva continues to order Braixen to furiously attack and trap Diantha. As they battle, the Magic Room begins to sink into the ground. Y and Shauna attempt to stop this, but are unable to break open the Magic Room barrier before it fully disappears.

In PAXY35, Gardevoir battles against Malva's Talonflame. After trading blows Malva cuts the match short to save Lysandre.
