Gardevoir (Japanese: サーナイト Sirnight) is a dual-type Psychic/Fairy Pokémon introduced in Generation III. Prior to Generation VI, it was a pure Psychic-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Kirlia starting at level 30. It is one of Ralts's final forms, the other being Gallade.

Gardevoir can Mega Evolve into Mega Gardevoir using the Gardevoirite.

Biology

Gardevoir is a bipedal, humanoid Pokémon whose body resembles a flowing gown. Most of its body is white, but its hair, arms, and the underside of its gown are green. Its hair curls over its face and down the sides of its head. Behind its red eyes are short spikes, resembling a masquerade mask. It has long arms with three fingers on each hand and slender white legs. A red, fin-like horn extends from its chest, and a shorter, more rounded horn extends from the back. A band of green on its chest extends to the center of the front horn and connects to its sleeve-like arms.

As Mega Gardevoir, it turns almost completely white; only its hair remains green. Its gown becomes longer and wider, resembling a bridal gown. The forearms are slightly thicker with a pointed extension above the elbow. Its facial spikes are larger and now curl upwards. In contrast, its hair is now shorter and more tightly curled. There are now two horns in the center of its chest, extending to either side. These horns are said to be a physical manifestation of this Pokémon's heart, and it is able to use tremendous psychic power now that it is open.[1]

Gardevoir is able to see the future using its psychic powers. Additionally, it is able to create small black holes, distort dimensions, and support itself without feeling the pull of gravity. Its power reaches its peak when protecting its Trainer, whom it will protect with its life. This Pokémon inhabits urban areas.

Trophy information

"An Embrace Pokémon. Despite its elegant and feminine features, there can be male and female Gardevoir. A Psychic-type, it has the ability to see the future and levitate.

Gardevoir also appears as a trophy in both versions of the game.

Trophy information

NA: Gardevoir is a Psychic/Fairy-type Pokémon, bearing an elegant appearance that male and female Gardevoir share. In Smash Bros., it uses Reflect to turn back projectiles and items launched toward it. Helpfully, it won't affect any of the shots from the player who summoned it. Take advantage of this!

PAL: This Psychic- and Fairy-type may look like a woman in a long dress, but there are both male and female Gardevoir out there! If you get one in battle, it'll use Reflect, creating a barrier that stops projectiles from hitting you and your allies. It won't block any of your shots, though, so feel free to fire all the projectiles you like!

Trivia

Origin

Gardevoir seems to be based on a feminine principal ballet dancer as well as the concept of empathy. The long, white frills surrounding its body resemble a floor-length dress, and its thin, pointed legs make it appear as if it is standing en pointe and wearing white tights. Its hair is styled into a bob cut, and the short spikes behind its eyes resemble a masquerade mask. Its red horns resemble half of a heart symbol and seem to pierce its chest, implying that its ability to sense emotions is even stronger than its pre-evolved forms since the horns are connected directly to its heart.

Gardevoir's Fairy type and protective nature over its Trainer seem to be inspired by guardian angels, and its flowing, white body is reminiscent of ghosts or spirits such as a White Lady. Its large head, minimal facial features, and frail physique are similar to anesama ningyō, a type of Japanese paper doll.

Mega Gardevoir appears to be based on a ballroom dancer wearing a large ball gown and evening gloves.

Name origin

Gardevoir may be a combination of the French words garde (to guard; referring to how it defends its Trainer) or garder (to keep) and voir (to see; referring to its Psychic powers) or devoir (duty).

Sirnight may be a combination of sir (an honorific for male knights) and knight (a brave, noble warrior). It could also be read as さあ、ナイト saa, naito ("Come here, Knight").
