Diantha's Gardevoir (Japanese: カルネのサーナイト Carnet's Sirnight) is Diantha's main Pokémon in the games, anime, and manga.

In the anime

 
Gardevoir and Diantha

Gardevoir is Diantha's only known Pokémon and is able to Mega Evolve into Mega Gardevoir. In The Bonds of Evolution!, it was first seen fighting 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 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.

In Battling Into the Hall of Fame!, an old photo in the Pokémon Summer Camp Hall of Fame revealed it to have evolved from a Ralts and to have been with Diantha since she was young.

In Championing a Research Battle!, Gardevoir battled 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 it easily sent them blasting off. It then dropped to its knees in exhaustion; Diantha thanked it for a job well done and recalled it.

In A Towering Takeover!, Gardevoir was seen trying to protect Lumiose City citizens from Team Flare's attack alongside Diantha. In Coming Apart at the Dreams!, Rocking Kalos Defenses!, and Forming a More Perfect Union!, it continued to protect the Kalos region from Team Flare and assisted in the battle to destroy the Giant Rock while Diantha led the charge against it.

As a Mega Gardevoir

Gardevoir is Diantha's only known Pokémon. It is able to Mega Evolve into Mega Gardevoir. It debuted in PS559, where it was seen in the Lysandre Café with its Trainer. Diantha had it Mega Evolve to make Lysandre back off from threatening Trevor, Shauna, and Tierno.

In PS568, Diantha used Gardevoir to battle Chalmers's multiple Skrelp. Using its Psychic powers, Gardevoir rescued Gurkinn and his Heracross from drowning in a lake. Afterward, it Mega Evolved to fight against Chalmers's Dragalge, which it easily defeated with Pixilate-powered Hyper Beam. Gardevoir later helps save a wild Diancie from a thief alongside Gurkinn's Heracross and Korrina's Lucario.

In PS575, 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 Yveltal Steals, Gardevoir battles against Malva's Talonflame. Due to Malva stealing her Mega Charm, Diantha is unable to Mega Evolve Gardevoir during this battle. The battle is later interrupted when Malva runs off to try and save Lysandre from falling to his defeat at the hands of X.
