Gallade (Japanese: エルレイド Erlade) is a dual Psychic/Fighting-type Pokémon. It is the male counterpart to Gardevoir.

Appearance

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. It's 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 it's 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 it's "helmet" becomes silver instead of light blue. It also has a slightly purple colored hue.

Special abilities

Gallade have the ability Steadfast, which allows its speed to increase x1.5 if it flinches.

The protrusions on Gallade's arms can be extended to be used as blades. This allows Gallade to learn a variety of sword-like moves. Gallade can also learn a variety of other offensive attacks, as well as a few defensive attacks that can be learned through TM's.

Evolution

Gallade evolves from a male Kirlia by the use of a Dawn Stone.

Appearances

In the manga

Gallade in the Pokémon Adventures Manga.

In the Platinum chapter, Darach owns a Gallade.

In the anime

Zoey's Gallade

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.

Game info

Gallade first appeared in the Generation IV games as the male counterpart of Gardevoir. Gallade was likely created to be a counterpart since a male Kirlia could evolve into the very feminine Gardevoir, which gave some confusion. However, since a male Kirlia can only be evolved into a Gallade by use of a Dawn Stone, a male Kirlia can still evolve into a Gardevoir at level 30.
