Gardevoir (the Embrace Pokemon) is a rare Psychic/Fairy-type Pokemon found among grassy fields within the Hoenn, Sinnoh and Kalos regions as well as the Unova region on rare occasions.  Elegantly beautiful in appearance and surprisingly powerful in battle, Gardevoir are wondrous creatures that can more than prove to be a difficult opponent to tackle in battle.  They might not be as highly-receptive to emotions as their pre-evolved forms, but for Gardevoir, that's probably the best; the last thing that any trainer needs is a Pokemon capable of generating a black hole that's also emotionally unstable!

For the Ralts family, evolution into either Gardevoir or Gallade is a major point in their life, as it is akin to a child's full development into adulthood in that they obtain a tremendous boost in overall strength and finally become a force to be reckoned with on any battlefield.  Evolution into Gardevoir results in the full development of these creatures' psychic powers and a considerable change in their personality.  The advanced extrasensory organs that once adorned these creatures' heads has not been moved to their chest area, in turn isolating their ability to sense emotions from their minds and allowing them to maintain a stable emotional state at all times.  Moreover, these creatures undergo mental maturity to the point where they leave the innocence of their youth completely behind and lose the ability to utilize moves associated with that innocence, namely the Lucky Chant and Charm techniques, and instead gain the Wish, Captivate, Healing Wish and Misty Terrain techniques, in addition to possessing developed-enough Fairy-type powers to learn the devastating Moonblast attack.  Their natural psychic abilities further become amplified beyond the capabilities of many other Psychic-types to the point where they can freely levitate off the ground without ever having to touch it again, which is probably for the best as their legs are somewhat frail and easily hurt.  Overall, Gardevoir are exceptionally powerful creatures that can more than devastate weaker opponents without exerting much effort at all and are considered to be among the best of their type.

Gardevoir are extremely protective of their trainers (likely the result of their emotion-sensing organs being so close to their heart, or at least in a metaphorical sense) and will gladly do whatever it takes to protect them regardless of the cost, even if it means sacrificing their own life; while this can often prove to be a boon to trainers when fighting against wild Pokemon, this can also make it very difficult for said trainers to form strong relationships with other Pokemon, as Gardevoir tend to be a bit clingy.  This is particularly troublesome for certain trainers that prefer to live in the moment, as Gardevoir are much more efficient than Kirlia at looking at the past and future and are able to predict future events much more accurately.  Interestingly enough, these creatures show such strong devotion to their trainers that, if the life of their owner becomes beyond endangered, Gardevoir will do something so devastating that the effects can be felt for miles and miles away: they will generate a black hole.  This is done by expending all of their psychic energy in a single burst to create a massive disturbance in the space around them such that a point in space-time becomes compressed enough to become a singularity and thus the short-lived heart of a black hole.  This is more than enough time, however, to completely obliterate any nearby offenders before the space resets itself and the black hole dissipates.  Unfortunately, in the vast majority of cases, this tremendous drain of psychic energy is simply too much for Gardevoir to handle and they pass away soon after, making the entire event both miraculous and absolutely devastating to their trainer and thus something that trainers should do their best to avoid if at all possible.

In addition, Gardevoir is one of only 46 species of Pokemon known to be capable of undergoing Mega Evolution.  When in possession of a Gardevoirite, Mega Evolution enables these creatures to turn the intense emotional energies within them outward, in turn fully displaying their complete power in battle.  The extrasensory organ that is normally attached to the torso of a Gardevoir splays outward in this unleashing of power, transforming into a powerful energy conduit that is said to be a physical manifestation of their hearts.  Complementing this is an increase in the size of the dress-like organic sheet that covers their lower torso and legs and minor modifications to their ears and fur color, granting them an elegant appearance that is said to be the true incarnation of Fairy-type beauty.  In terms of stats, this ability to fully utilize both psychic powers and internal emotions together without affecting concentration has the effect of moderately increasing Mega Gardevoir's base Attack, Defense and Special Defense stats and critically increasing its base Special Attack stat; in turn, they gain the highest base Special Attack stat and non-legendary base stat total out of all Fairy-type Pokemon.  In addition, the combination of their emotional energy and their natural Fairy-type powers grants these creatures and extremely powerful Fairy Force, so powerful in fact that it overrides all of their otherwise type-less attacks and therefore grants them the Pixilate Ability.  These gorgeous beasts still might not be able to take much in the way of damage from physical attacks in battle, but unless the opposition can manage to outrun them, there is little to nothing that most trainers can do to survive the otherwise perfect, devastating attacks that these beauties are capable of wielding in their Mega Evolutionary form.

Lastly, it is important to note that, perhaps as a result of their protective natures and their exceptional beauty, Gardevoir are considered to be the most common victims within the Pokemon world of bestiality.  Although they exist as both males and females, the human mind is well-known for distorting the truth and assigning gender roles to whatever it may see, and as it would seem, the overwhelming feminine features of Gardevoir have made them a prime target among desperate and perhaps psychotic humans.  The surgical manipulation of Pokemon in general is banned in most countries throughout the world, but that has not stopped many humans in the modern day from 'adjusting' the physical attributes of their Gardevoir for their own sick pleasure.  This issue has been debated back and forth among activists for many years now, but because the subject is extremely sensitive and is usually kept quiet because of the temperaments it flares up, there have been no successful movements against the practice to have it completely banned globally.  Nonetheless, this is a touchy enough subject that humans caught in the crime are often persecuted as sex offenders and their abused Gardevoir are taken to animal shelters, where their 'modifications' are removed as best as they can be and they put up for adoption by more sane individuals.

Though they might be somewhat frail-looking and too kind to be a threat, Gardevoir are powerful beasts that can more than give it their all against even the strongest of opponents.  With a surprisingly high resistance against special attacks, the highest base Special Attack stat out of all non-legendary Fairy-type Pokemon and enough psychic power to distort the fabric of space-time to the point of no return, it can certainly be said that anyone patient enough to put up with the weakness of Ralts and Kirlia will not be disappointed with the results.  Just make sure that you keep the relationship with your Gardevoir as professional as possible and avoid letting their clingy nature get to you; a friendship is fine enough, but letting it go anywhere else is probably one of the biggest mistakes you can possibly make in the long-run!

It's very sad to know that people abuse these poor Pokémon in such deplorable ways-and it makes me burn with anger, especially considering that when I got my Ralts on Route 4 in Kalos, she was in the hedge maze crying her eyes out! I made friends with her, and later that night, I had a psychic dream in which a man in a red suit and his Spiritomb and Malamar killed her father, and that man had her mother hypnotized by his Malamar and he had assaulted her mother until she died! I learned that this man is part of a group of Pokémon abusing criminals known as Team Flare! When I took her, then a Gardevoir, to face them and their crazy plot to destroy the world with their ancient weapon, she was the star of my team and pretty much nuked everything they could throw at her-she even faced down the likes of Yvetlal, the Destruction Pokémon, like it was nothing, and even defeated Lysandre's Mega Gyarados! I noticed that when she was doing all this against them, she was very determined, and her power level was crazy high, even more so then when she was just protecting me-and I learned that Ralia was not just protecting me, but the entire world from them and their twisted scheme! Have you observed anything like this?

Sadly, yes...
Gardevoir have huge hearts, and that means that they can get hurt quire easily, but they are more than capable of turning that against any that dare to hurt those they care about...

Ralia did have a huge heart. She willing risked her life to confront Lysandre and his demented plan, time and time again. Her love made her very strong indeed. It is sad that she gave her life to save my team after they had been killed by Yvetlal. If it wasn't for her...who knows what would have happened...to the world.

Indeed. They are one the greatest friends that any trainer can have. It's sad that many people abuse these poor creatures. I once uncovered an operation by Team Plasma where they brainwashed and 'adjusted' Gardevoirs and used them as sex slaves. Luckily, with the help of my team at the time and a handful of caring trainers and the police, those people and this sick operation have been brought to justice. And what is worse is that they were claiming they were liberating Pokémon! Sorry...I went off on a little bit of rant there...but yeah...Gardevoir is one of the kindest and most gentle of Pokémon and Ralia...she did start off as a timid little Ralts because of what a member of Team Flare did to her parents. But she became the instrument of their downfall.

And that is what makes Pokemon and humans so alike; we may be different creatures, but we all strive to make the best with the life that we are given.

Indeed. It is a good thing that Team Flare is now gone. As for that grunt that did that to her parents...he died when Lysandre, in his despair at seeing his vision fall apart, destroyed himself and the ultimate weapon. May the grunt who did that to Ralia's parents forever burn in hell...especially for what he tried to do when I fought against him...image, trying to have his Malamar use Hypnosis on my Gardevoir and then trying to kill me so he could assault her! Luckily, Ralia broke free of its control and took them both down with her Moonblast. I never saw a Gardevoir so angry.

Yes, many bad things happened under the attack of Team Flare...

I myself, though, hold no personal grudge against Lysandre. He was a man doing what he thought was right, and while I might not agree with what he almost did, I can understand why he did it...
