Gallade (エルレイド Erureido) is a dual Psychic/Fighting-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV. It is the counterpart to Gardevoir, and an evolved form of Kirlia.

Biology

Physiology

Gallade somewhat shares a resemblance to its counterpart Gardevoir, but is different in many ways. The "skirt" of its pre-evolved form is now gone, revealing its legs, which are now much wider. The red horns that were on its head have moved down to its chest, like that of Gardevoir, but are much sharper. Its head is also similar to that of a Gardevoir, but it instead has a large gray-blue horn resembling a gladiator helmet. Another notable feature is the blade-like protrusions from its elbows, which Gallade can use as swords. It seems that the sharp protrusions can be extended and retracted when necessary. The shiny version of Gallade has a blue coloring where the original has green, and its "helmet" becomes silver instead of light blue. It also has a slightly purple colored hue.

Behavior

Gallade are noble Pokémon that protect the weak and are talented at etiquette and "fencing", as well as they can do anything to defeat their enemies.

Natural abilities

Gallade have the ability Steadfast, which allows its speed to increase x1.5 if it flinches. As Mega Gallade, it has Inner Focus, which makes any move that attempts to flinch Mega Gallade, such as Fake Out, completely useless.

Habitat

Most Gallade live on treetops so as to jump down and fight with enemies or alert civilians.

Evolution

Gallade evolves from a male Kirlia by the use of a Dawn Stone, but a male Kirlia can also evolve into Gardevoir at Level 30. It can further evolve into Mega Gallade with its Mega Stone.

Appearances

Anime

Gallade made its anime debut in "A Grand Fight for Winning!", and it made an appearance in the movie The Rise of Darkrai. Zoey also has a Gallade, which she used in her Grand Festival match against Dawn.

Manga

In the Platinum chapter, Darach owns a Gallade.

Trivia

  • Its cry is similar to blades being clashed together.
  • The name "Gallade" has actually existed long before the Pokémon's creation; there is a U.S.-based chemical distribution company called "Gallade Chemical", which started business in the 1960s and has no relations with Nintendo or The Pokémon Company International.
  • Despite being a Fighting-type, it can only learn one Fighting-type move (Close Combat) by leveling up.
  • Gallade is the second Psychic/Fighting-type to get a Mega Evolution, the other is Medicham.
    • However, Medicham's typing is reversed, and it is actually a Fighting/Psychic type.
  • Gallade is one of the two Fighting-type Pokémon that can learn an actual Fairy-type move, which is Dazzling Gleam. The other is Meloetta in its Pirouette Forme, but only in battle after using Relic Song.
    • However, the other members of the evolutionary line are Fairy-type.
  • Gallade is the only Pokémon in the Ralts family whose secondary type is Fighting and not Fairy.
    • In addition, Kirlia is the only Pokémon which loses the Fairy-type upon evolving.
  • Gardevoir's Japanese name implies that it was intended to have a masculine appearance. However, western audiences interpreted it as feminine, so Gallade was created as a male-only evolution.

Origin

Gallade is based off a knight.

Etymology

Gallade's English name is a combination of the words "Gallant" and "Blade". Its Japanese name, Erureido, is a combination of the word "Earl" (meaning chieftain) and "blade".
