Iron Valiant (Japanese: テツノブジン, HepburnTetsunobujin) is a Fairy/Fighting-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.



Iron Valiant is very similar to Gallade in appearance, resembling a robotic version of it. It has a cape-like protrusion on its back much like Gallade's Mega Evolution, but rather than relying on its blade-like protrusions from its arms, it uses what appears to be one-handed twin blade. It is a mechanical, bipedal Pokémon whose appearance retains numerous visual traits from both Gardevoir and Gallade. Its arms consist of gauntlets with large magenta blades protruding from the sides, which it can detach and combine to serve as a deadly double-edged weapon. Its head spikes outward twice from both sides and is covered by a green curved piece resembling hair with two cone-shaped structures at the back of its head, and a teal head crest, somewhat akin to a gladiator's helmet. A magenta core serves as a centerpiece on its chest. Four petal-shaped white and green guards tinged with magenta at the ends adorn its torso, resembling a dress.

A shiny Iron Valiant has its entire plating in a steel-gray color, with the magenta being retained for its core, blades, eyes and parts of its skirt.


Iron Valiant was created by a mad scientist in pursuit of creating the strongest Psychic-type Pokémon in existence. However, unlike its noble counterparts Gallade and Gardevoir, Iron Valiant is ruthless and cold-blooded, never hesitant to cleave anyone it considers as its enemies on its path with its scythes.

    • Despite not capable of evolving, it somewhat shares relation with Ralts and its evolved states.
    • Iron Valiant is the first Pokémon with the Fairy/Fighting-type combination.
    • Iron Valiant can be considered the counterpart of Roaring Moon:
      • They are the only non-Legendary Paradox Pokémon with a base stat total of 590 rather than 570.
      • They are both the highest-leveled and the only Pokémon on their team with the held item Booster Energy used by Professor Sada/Professor Turo in the first battle against them.
      • Both are based on a Mega-Evolved Pokémon.
      • Both are separated from the other Paradox Pokémon in Paldea Pokédex numbering.
      • Both appear in an edition of "Occulture" in the Poco Path Lighthouse Lab instead of in the Naranja/Uva Academy entrance hall.


    Iron Valiant is based on an android with elements of a combat warrior. It bares physical properties of both Gardevoir and Gallade with the former's hair and dress and the latter's horn and arm blades. As it's a robotic humanoid that uses a bladed energy weapon and was created by a mad scientist, it may also be based on Zero from the Mega Man series, with its green-and-white body and pink weapon being a reversal of sorts of Zero's red-and-white body and green energy weapons. Its reported cruel, merciless nature may be a reference to how fighting machines in sci-fi sometimes lack any concept related to compassion or empathy.
