Gardevoir is a Psychic/Fairy Pokémon introduced in Generation III. Previously a pure Psychic-type prior to Generation VI, it is one of the two final evolved forms of Ralts.

Biology

Physiology

Gardevoir is a humanoid sylph-like, Pokémon. It stands over five feet tall. The classical tutu-type skirt seen with Kirlia is now a long, flowing white gown that completely covers its legs, giving the appearance that it is floating. Gardevoir have long, slender, white legs underneath their gown. The inside of its gown is green in color. The red horns that were once on Kirlia's and Ralts' head have moved down onto Gardevoir's chest and back. Most of its face is obscured by its green 'hair', with only some white and its large red eyes visible. It also has long, slender arms that are green like its hair.

There are no gender differences between a male and female Gardevoir.

The shiny version of Gardevoir has light blue "hair" and arms as opposed to light green, and its "horns" and eyes are orange instead of red. When a Shiny Gardevoir undergoes Mega Evolution, its dress turns black rather than white.

Special abilities

Gardevoir can have two special abilities, the first being Synchronize, the second being Trace. Synchronize will pass on a Poisoned, Paralyzed, or Burned status effect (but not Sleep or Frozen) to the opponent Pokémon, and it will also increase the chance of meeting a wild Pokémon with the same nature as Gardevoir. The ability Trace will copy the opponent's ability for the duration of the battle.

Additionally, Gardevoir are able to sense the feelings and emotions of Pokémon and people. One of its main abilities, though, is a kind of precognition, which allows it to sense the future. Gardevoir are said to protect their trusted Trainers at all costs, even sacrificing their own lives to keep their Trainers safe.

Evolution

Gardevoir evolves from Kirlia upon reaching level 30. Gardevoir is one of two evolutionary forms of Kirlia. Gardevoir can evolve into Mega Gardevoir, the second final form.

Appearances

In the anime

Gardevoir

Melody's Gardevoir

One Gardevior appeared in Do I Hear A Ralts? In Mutiny In The Bounty, Melody's Gardevoir is stolen by Pokemon Hunter J, making it to stone. However, Gardevoir is released by Ash and his friends.

Trivia

  • Despite the fact that Gardevoir is a distinctly feminine Pokémon, it is possible to evolve a male Gardevoir. However Gardevoir's masculine counterpart is Gallade, which can only be evolved from a male Kirlia.

Origin

Gardevoir appears to be based on a sylph-like creature or fairy. It is also a protector spirit, as it will give its own life to guard its trainer from danger. It might be loosely based on a guardian angel.

Etymology

The name Gardevoir is likely derived from the French phrase garde de voir, which can be loosely translated as "guardian woman of sight", or "seeing". Its name can also come from "guardian angel" as it watches over its trainer protecting them.
