Gallade somewhat shares a resemblance to its female 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.

The red horns that were on his head have moved down to his chest, like that of Gardevoir, but are much sharper. His head is also similar to that of a Gardevoir, but he instead has a large gray-blue horn resembling a gladiator helmet. Another notable feature is the blade-like protrusions from his 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 his "helmet" becomes silver instead of light blue. He also has a slightly purple colored hue.

Trivia

  • Gallade's arms might be samurai swords due to how they look and how Gallade uses them.
  • In its cry, it sounds as if Gallade is drawing out its blades.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Gallade is the only Pokemon in the Ralts family whose secondary type is Fighting and not Fairy.
  • Gallade was originally to have a 7:1 gender ratio but this idea was later dumped.

Origin

Gallade is based off a knight.

Etymology
