    Actually Ralts should evolve earlier if anything, because Kirlias stats are ridiculous for a middle stage that ends up with 500+ total. Thats almost double of Kirlias ~270. I mean heck Squirtle and co have ~310 from the beginning.

    Although personally I always thought for a case like this (and especially fitting for Gardevoir), happiness evolution is what it should require.

    Ralts-lv.15->Kirlia-(happiness)->Gardevoir

    Note that the Ralts line was not a recycled Abra, but rather a separate attempt at 3 stage Psy pokemon, unlike Solosis and Gothita which are clearly "new" Abras.

    You have to realize they didn't just put higher levels but actually changed how leveling works...
    Look, you get a ****load of exp from defeating pokemon with higher levels compared to what you are leveling.
    That means everything can catch up, to the level you are encountering atm, hell of a lot easier than in the previous games.
    And THAT is the reason all those pokemon have so high requirements. It was the only way of keeping evolving a pseudolegend a tougher task.
