Gallade (Japanese: エルレイド Erureido) is a dual-type Psychic/Fighting Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from a male Kirlia when exposed to a Dawn Stone. It is one of Ralts's final forms, the other being Gardevoir.

Gallade can Mega Evolve into Mega Gallade using the Galladite.

Biology

Gallade is a white, bipedal Pokémon. Its lower body consists of rounded hips with strong legs. It has a thin green torso with sharp, red horns sticking out of its chest and back. Its arms are shaped like tonfas with extendable blades in its elbows. Its head resembles a gladiator's helmet with a white face, red eyes, and a teal head crest. It has spikes on the sides of its face.

It is a master of courtesy and swordsmanship that is capable of predicting its foe's moves. True to Gallade's honorable warrior image, it is just as protective of their Trainer as its counterpart Gardevoir, using the blades on its elbows to defend. The shoulder blades are said to be shaper then even the best swords. Gallade is known to be sharply aware of a person's wish for help and seeks out those who need its assistance in battle. Gallade fights savagely with fast and fierce attacks. Gallade is capable of teaching itself on how to learn swordsmanship at an impressive rate.

As Mega Gallade, its entire body becomes white. Red plates emerge on its arms, the blue head crest is slightly longer, and the spikes on its head are elongated and gain two cape-like protrusions on the back, this giving it a knightly appearance. When the situation demands it, Mega Gallade can use its psychic power to reshape both arms into blades simultaneously and fight using a dual-wielding style. Iron Valiant shares a resemblance to Mega Gallade.

Trivia

Origin

The single fin on Gallade's head resembles the helmet worn by murmillo-class Roman gladiators, or the Corinthian helmet with a horsehair crest worn by Greek hoplites, but it may also be based on medieval knights. Additionally, its battle stances in various media resemble the en garde position and parries of modern fencing, while the elbow swords themselves have a close resemblance to tonfas, wooden bars held against the arm to act as batons and arm guards. Mega Gallade's cape is similar to a matador or bullfighter's fabric.

Name origin

Gallade may be a combination of gallant and blade.

Erureido may be a combination of elbow or earl, and blade. It may also involve 居合道 iaidō, a Japanese martial art of responding to attacks with swift swordplay.
