View Full Version : The Gardevoir/Gallade Club!

This is in replacement of the Gardevoir Sanctuary, which was unfortunately, closed.

Psysiology: The mini-skirt that Gardevoir had as a Kirlia is now an elegant ballroom gown. Gardevoir has long, slender, white legs underneath the gown. It gives the impression that it is levitating gracefully above the ground. Gardevoir has a red horn on its chest and another red horn on its back. Gardevoir's arms are now green and the red fin-like horns it had on its head as Ralts/Kirlia are now gone.


In Anime: Gardevoir's first appearance was in Do I Hear a Ralts?. It was the parent of the sick Ralts that Max and Ash's Snorunt were taking to the Pokémon Center.

Its most recent appearance was in Mutiny in the Bounty. It belonged to a girl named Melodi and then was stolen by Pokémon Hunter J. It proved to have a deep psychic connection with its trainer and was able to hear her through thought.

Trivia: Out of the three original stages of Ralts, Gardevoir is the only one that had its name changed when it came to the U.S.
The fact that Gardevoir can be male is a frequent topic of discussion among Pokémon forums. Perhaps in response to this, Gallade was created.

Origin: Gardevoir resembles a ballroom dancer. Its exaggerated head with minimal facial expression and an overall frail, featureless physique could also be attributed to anesama ningyou, a style of traditional Japanese paper doll.

Name: Gardevoir's name may be a combination of garde (French for "guard") and devoir (French for "to be required to"). This is reflected on its Dex data, which explains how Gardevoir will protect its Trainer even at the cost of its own life. Its Japanese name may be taken to mean さあ、ナイト saa, naito ("come, night").

Gallade

Physiology:

The mini-skirt that Gallade had as a Kirlia has disappeared, though its body is hourglass-shaped and its lower torso almost resembles a kilt. Gallade has white legs that are wider than its counterpart, Gardevoir's. Like Gardevoir, it also has a red horn protruding from its chest and another red horn sticking out of its back, but these are both smaller and sharper. Unlike Gardevoir, however, Gallade's arms have blade-like protrusions at the elbows, and its head is shaped somewhat like a gladiator's helmet. Gallade also happens to be a darker shade of green than the other members of its evolutionary line.

Gallade, thanks to its arm blades, can learn a variety of sword-like attacks in several types. These include Leaf Blade, Night Slash, and the rarely known Psycho Cut. As with other Fighting-type Pokémon, Gallade can summon Earthquakes, launch rocks at his opponents (in either the form Stone Edge, Rock Slide or Rock Tomb). Since Gallade is a fully-evolved Pokémon, he can learn Hyper Beam or Giga Impact.

Although Gallade was likely created to prevent confusion due to Gardevoir's distinctly feminine appearance, there can still be male Gardevoir. Kirlia, their shared pre-evolution, also has a distinctly feminine appearance as well.

Origin: Gallade may be based on a Roman gladiator.

Gallade was possibly introduced as a solution, or nod, to the complaints that a clearly feminine Pokémon such as Gardevoir could also be male. Male Gardevoir, however, are still possible to obtain and there remain other Pokémon of a specific gender-based design to still be available in both genders, such as Machoke.

Gallade may be a combination of gladiator, gallant, and blade. It may also be a reference to Sir Galahad.

Erlade might be a combination of Earl (meaning chieftain) and blade, referring to the sword-like appendages on its arms.

Okay:

Rules: Ralts, Kirlia can also be brought up here.
You can post your Gallade/Gardevior/Kirlia/Ralts attacks here.
No swearing, fighting, cursing.

'Ello, big Gardevoir fan here, as ya can see. I don't really care if I am co-owner or not, so it is up to you.

Which do you prefer, Gallade or Gardevoir? Why?

Gardevoir, psychics always been my favorite type of Pokemon. In addition, it's a beautiful Pokemon, and the fact that I'm more focused on the special side of attacking than physical helps. Last thing, would be that it's my lead for pretty much ALL battles in Emerald considering how useful it is (Wish / Thunder-Wave / Will-O-Wisp + Calm Mind + Thunderbolt + Psychic for example can sweep a many teams), and in competitive it has quite a lot of options for support.

Ooh! MeMeMe!!! I want to join! See sig; my name on many other forums is actually Gardevoir Girl!

Which do you prefer, Gallade or Gardevoir? Why?

I actually like Gallade more. I've always been interested in Pokemon with blades attached somehow; I had a fascination with Scyther name years ago, and then when I saw Gallade I couldn't resist raising one. I now have four because I can't stop collecting them. Oh, and I put one in one of my early stories and became very fond of him.

Ah, it seems we both got added as members... That's good news. ^^ Hopefully this won't die out, like Gardevoir's Sanctuary. Died out right when I wanted to join... Well, at least there was another one out there.

So far, I've been trying to find a decent Ralts in my Emerald ROM... They all come out with natures that lower Sp. Attack, which isn't good at all... Out of the twenty or so I caught so far most come out as Jolly...

Anyways, here's a picture of Gallade in the anime, one of the few considering if I'm correct there's only one displayed so far and that was in the movie. Actually... There aren't many pictures of Gallade and Gardevoir in the anime, compared to some other Pokemon who appear every five episodes or so.

Thank you! Is there a banner or something for the club? If so, I'd love to put it in my sig! Oh, and I'm saving that picture to my Photobucket account <3

Yeah, I'm obsessed.

Anyway... Saanaito-Kun... don't I recognize you from somewhere? *Checks a certain club on a certain site* Aah, there you are. Hi again!

Hi, as well.

And no, currently at the moment there isn't a banner we can use right now... However chances are we'll find one to use eventually... I'm not that much of a graphics designer though... I often draw with pencil and paper, instead of doing digital-based artwork, so me making one is unfortunately out of the question right now...

Well, at least we may have a banner coming up soon.

Been fooling around with artwork... I been attempting a few drawings focusing on Gardevoir... Once my scanner works I may or may not upload them to my DA... Just depends how they come out as a finished piece...

Gardevouir,i have known it longer! :P
I guess because it could be a special wall and or special sweeper.It's also pretty!

Anyone whom requested to join and isn't added to the list, don't worry as you are accepted. ^^ Not like we kick people or refuse applications for no reason.

Attention all tetrahedrons!

This zetta decent club most likely will die out soon unless I post a zetta rad topic! So... Here are several.

Would you rather be Gallade or Gardevoir?
What is your strongest Gallade and/or Gardevoir (if you collect them)?
If you seen one IRL, what would you do?
Ever made any writing or artwork centralizing upon Gallade and/or Gardevoir?
If Gallade or Gardevoir were in Brawl (or maybe in a SSB4 if one is made) as a Playable Character, what would you think their moveset would be?
Do you own any Pokemon merchandise other than the games and anime DVDs where the Ralts-line was the main subject?

---

Prepare to respond to any of 'em, I guess. I'll only respond to three, as I'm rather busy at the moment.

Ever made any writing or artwork centralizing upon Gallade and/or Gardevoir?

A bit of artwork, I guess. There's also a canceled Pokemorph story where the main character was a Gardevoir morph... Nothing else really. I would upload my artwork, but I have extremely bad luck with my scanner, it breaking every two seconds forcing me to buy a new one. Dx

If Gallade or Gardevoir were in Brawl (or maybe in a SSB4 if one is made) as a Playable Character, what would you think their moveset would be?

Ah... Sometimes I thought Gallade would be a playable character, not so much Gardevoir... But here's a crappy moveset I thought up quickly...

Gardevoir
Power: llll
Speed: lll
Weight: ll
Jump: lll
Height: llll (She is 5'7"... Not sure of other character's height sadly...)

Overall, a rather decent character, with large jumps, moderate speed, and power. The only downside is Gardevoir being a light-weight, but the Pokemon would have a special ability to hold up to slow down the speed in which he/her (most likely her, as many people would be frightened at the idea of a male Gardevoir) descends. Still, I would guess that being rather light, many characters such as Ike could take care of her easily.

B: Magical Leaf. Energy is charged up and transformed into multi-colored leafs. After charging for three seconds (the longer B is held the more powerful, obviously), Gardevoir releases the leaves, which spread out forward in random directions unless moved in one direction with the Control Stick.

B>/<: Psychic. Sorta like Mewtwo's Confusion, although it disables the opponent temporarily as Gardevoir flings a hand the direction the Control Stick is held, tossing the foe there with Psychic energy and dealing decent damage.

B^: Teleport. Push the Control Stick in one direction to teleport there instantaneously. Can be canceled through attacking, but it's rather fast and the moment started, there's an Invincibility Frame (that might be rather cheap though)...

Bv: Double Team. Working like Lucario's, when hit, Gardevoir will disappear as Afterimages of her will strike...

FS: Psycho Crush. Much like Lucario's original FS, not based off of any real attack other than maybe Hyper Beam, Gardevoir will get her own as well. Hovering a few feet into the air, characters nearby will have pressure inflicted upon them with Psychic power, and are slammed into the ground with the Psychokinesis Gardevoir has, dealing even more damage. Roughly 40%, and you could probably avoid it if you're smart enough to stay away.

Taunt: Twirls around, wagging her right index finger left to right...

Do you own any Pokemon merchandise other than the games and anime DVDs where the Ralts-line was the main subject?

No, not really. I do own a bit of Pokemon TCG cards (Ralts and Kirlia being the only ones relevant here), but they really wouldn't count, I suppose...

This seems like a good club. Can I join? I think Gallades and Gardevoirs are useful in battles and there great (and, I'm one of those fans who likes the Gallade x Gardevoir couple) =]

Would you rather be Gallade or Gardevoir?

I would for sure be a Gallade because I'm Male of course XD

Cynic Kaka
June 23rd, 2008, 06:08 PM

I'd be a gardevir! (jk)

Strongest Gallade?

*Psycho Cut Stone Edge Leaf Blade Swords Dance Fully EVed

Gallade Moveset?

Speed: 10. Moves so fast, illusions of it follow it.

Attack Defense: 10

Moves:

Psycho Cut: Charge Move, sort of like Lucario and Mewtwo's B move.

Up-B: Sky Uppercut

Over-B: Leaf Blade: Sends out 40 leafs that circle the enemy, and slash him up.

Down and B: Charge BeamL Like Wario's Waft, or R.O.B's B Beam

Final Smash: Swords Dance 3 times, then he uses a Shadow Ball followed by a Hyper Beam, then, while enemy is down, uses Close Combat on top of enemy, and then ends with a Focus Blast to the face.

Would you rather be Gallade or Gardevoir?

I would actually rather be Gallade, but since I'm female that wouldn't exactly work.

What is your strongest Gallade and/or Gardevoir (if you collect them)?

My strongest Gallade is named Eruri. His moveset is Brick Break, Leaf Blade, Psycho Cut and Protect. He's EV trained in Attack and his nature is Gentle, so he can take a powerful hit as well.

If you seen one IRL, what would you do?

Aside from having a heart attack, I'd try to befriend it.

Ever made any writing or artwork centralizing upon Gallade and/or Gardevoir?

I've drawn them a few times, but I'm not very good. I also write about them a lot. Too much, according to some of my readers.

Hi! Is it too late to join? I love Gardie and Gallade. I really am not sure of which one I like better; I suppose Gardevoir because I've had mine longer.

I have a level 100 Gallade with an Adamant nature and EVs in atack and speed that's pretty strong. I also have a level 100 Gardie, but she's from before I knew of EVs a few years ago, so she's not too tough. I'm currently training a Gardie who's now level 47. So I guess as of now, my Gallade is the strongest.

If I saw one in real life... I'd freak out and think that my hours of gaming were screwing with my head.

I've never really drawn either of them. I like drawing, but I'm better at people. I tried Ralts once, however, and it came out pretty well.

I'm a Gardevoir user, big time. I'm the one who started using it as a special wall on Shoddy actually (I'm the Lotus guy).

Gardevoir @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 212 SDef / 44 SAtk
Nature: Calm (SDef+/Atk-)
- Calm Mind
- Wish
- Psychic
- Thunderbolt

Starmie's STAB attacks are like a 4/5HKO if no Specs on it, and it pwns all other special walls not named Snorlax. Putting Empoleon on a team with it is awesome because Empoleon resists everything Gardevoir is weak to (Ghost, Dark, Bug). It owns because the way to beat it is to attack quickly rather than defend (Salamence is a better counter than Blissey), so if I can kill their physical sweeper I win. And nobody switches Heracross into it because of Psychic even though Hera can counter it if it comes in on anything else.

The only thing stopping Gardevoir from being perfect is the fact that it can't learn Recover. Unfortunately, that's the reason why I often use Alakazam instead.

I would most certianly rather be a Gardevoir, they are so elegant looking. And, for some reason, I love the way thier "hair" looks.
I'm also planning on a Gardevoir Cosplay, after I make my Green Pearl Voice Costume
