Gardevoir (the Embrace Pokémon) is a rare Psychic/Fairy-type Pokémon found among grassy fields within the Hoenn, Sinnoh and Kalos regions as well as the Johto and Unova regions 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 Pokémon 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 have 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 Pokémon, this can also make it very difficult for said trainers to form strong relationships with other Pokémon, 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 Pokémon 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 their base Special Attack stat; in turn, they gain the highest base Special Defense stat out of all non-legendary Psychic-type Pokémon as well as the highest base Special Attack stat and non-legendary base stat total out of all Fairy-type Pokémon. In addition, the combination of their emotional energy and their natural Fairy-type powers grants these creatures an 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 Evolved 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 Pokémon 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 Pokémon 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 capacity to utilize and resist damage from special attacks and more than enough 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 could result in more complications in a trainer’s life than what might be ordinarily appreciated!

Gardevoir is in the Amorphous egg group along the likes of Muk, Slugma, Drifblim, Jellicent etc.

It's mainly because their humanoid form is malleable anatomically to a degree not seen in other species of Pokemon, thus allowing them to take on a startling variety of body shapes and sizes.

Mine did more than a black hole once. She caused a localized ZK-class reality failure scenario. About half the city where I live now looks like it was designed by Shadgrimgrvy
I wonder how living near a distorted mess like that will affect the resale value of my apartment.

Yes on both accounts, actually. And with the right legal defense, I think that a winning case could certainly be made in the latter instance, provided that a jamming choker be applied to the Gardevoir to prevent capture by someone else.

Well it's wonderful for the child, rather than being shunted into an orphanage ful of strangers and then shipped to more strangers that they're expected to call mom and dad. The gardevoir would be a familiar figure and the events much less traumatizing for the child. Maybe I'll put it in my will that should i pass, Guardianship be passed to my Gardevoir.

A wild Pheromosa with a metabolic disorder. Her pheromone organ is completely nonfunctional as a result of her disorder and she weighs a lot more than she should. Her body has a hard time processing body fat, so it tends to get stored around her thighs and hip area. She is incredibly intelligent, though, even more so than your typical human, and she self-taught herself how to speak English. I proposed to her last week, and she said yes.

One of my current favorite moments in my training career was at the Hoenn Victory Road where my under-leveled normal Gardevoir, with some help from me being a quick draw with healing items, managed to outlast a Mega Gallade. Let me repeat: My regular Gardevoir, despite the level disadvantage and lack of super effective moves, took on a Mega Gallade and won.

Shortest distance (Which I assume is between either Lake of Rage or Kanto Route 25 in the south and Route 221 (the one that connects to Pal Park) in Sinnoh?).

It depends on how big the Pokemon world map is. I'd probably used a larger version of the map (Not as big as the real world map, but still pretty big).

Humans forcing Gardevoirs like... 'that', is wrong, indeed.
But, what about a Gardevoir that does 'THAT' to humans? I heard about a story where someone was relentlessly chased by a female Gardevoir because she really loves her trainer to extreme heights... 

And I hope there's no Gardevoir that develops a murderous hatred for humans... Thinking what one can do to a person sends a shiver down my spine...

Well, personally, I have no objection to such relationships if true, genuine love is involved; it's when it is forced that it becomes highly inappropriate to me. As for your other comment, I sadly would not be surprised if there was, knowing the way humans are...

True..

Ah, one more thing that just crossed my mind, professor.
Gardevoirs are very loyal to their trainers, right? What about Gardevoirs that are in the wild? Do they just immediately stay loyal to a trainer that captures them even if the trainers uses methods like poisoning (which seems pretty 'rough' compared to putting them to sleep or paralyze) to increase the catch rate? Or, like other pokemons do, they can dislike the trainer at first?

I can understand a Gardevoir that was captured as Ralts will grow up with the trainer, thus they'll have a strong bond with their trainer when they evolve into one. So, what about one that evolves into a Gardevoir in the wilds alone?
Reply
:iconmutitus:
Mutitus Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2017  Professional Writer
I would say the latter; trust needs to be built first for it to last. A wild one will still need to get used to its trainer for it to become loyal.

Excuse me if this is a question that can be answered by the term 'guilty pleasure', but is a romantic relation between a human and a Gardevoir ethically acceptable if it is consentual? Reason being a good friend of mine is currently in that position and getting a lot of stick for what you could potentially expect.

It is, unfortunately, looked down upon by society at large, but my personal opinion is that if there are strong feelings on both sides of the relationship, and they feel that they want to be like that, then it should be so. I hold no distaste for love if it is genuine.

Ok though I do think it will happen eventually as our understanding of genetics and thus genetic modification and therapy technologies improve.
As well I think the fact that hybrids are possible even if they don't survive speaks volumes of how similar Humans and Pokemon are genetically.

I mean, when even there is discrimination between people... yeah most of the world is not ready for it.

I've been privy to one such example of hybrids existing, though its a combination of a strange teleport accident somehow splicing the parent's DNA. but thats the only reason their kid was stable. 

thankfullly said trainer was a rich one, and thus had enough influence to keep it top secret. nobody suspects the kid for being abnormal aside from psychic tendancies... but the father had that to begin with anyway.

lets hope they can still have a rather normal life...
though I personally believe arceus had intervined or something to allow this couple a child.

You'd be surprised, I've met quite a few hybrids during my travels through a very old kingdom (don't know where, depends on distance between Kanto/Johto and Sinnoh in Mutitus' canon) that has multiple Human/Pokemon hybrids living "normal" lives (issues with being a hybrid will be mentioned), (Assume infertile unless said otherwise) (All look like cosplayers, only the outfit's real).

They include a Human/Gallade hybrid (similar circumstances to the comment I'm replying to).

A few Human/Chimchar line hybrids (Only Infernape can breed with humans) (no flame, and have issues with body temperature control),

Two Human/Buneary line hybrids (Only Lopunny can breed with Humans) (Constant heightened hair growth rate, constant foot and ankle injuries due to deformed feet,

Several Human/Riolu line hybrids (Only Lucario can breed with humans), (constant foot and ankle injuries due to deformed feet, some aura sensing abilities, iron deficiency, issues regulating body temperature)

Several Human/Gothita line hybrids (Only Gothitelle can breed with humans) (Emotion control problems (all are Bipolar), some telepathic abilities, slight ability to see future, all sorts of hormone issues) (One Human/Gothita hybrid is claiming tracey sketchit is her father) (tell me if you get the reference).

A very old and wise Human/Alakazam hybrid (Kadabra and Alakazam can breed with humans), (Fertile, regular migraines due to overlarge brain, some telepathic abilities, significantly slower ageing process (Body of a 60 year old, currently 113 years old)

A female Human/Meditite line hybrid (only Medicham can breed with humans), (Infertile, some telepathic abilities, mild issues with body temperature regulation (not as bad as Human/Infernape hybrid or Human/Lucario hybrid) (body temperature regulation issues might explain why the hybrid meditates nude).

And finally, two Human/Mienfoo line hybrids (Only Mienshao can breed with humans), (Infertile, slight aura sensing abilities, arm injuries steadily more common as hybrid gets older, feet and ankle injuries more common, but not as common as Bunary and Riolu line hybrids).

That's the ones I encountered, and talked to during my travels.

My wife, turns out, to be a lost princess of a 'hidden' kingdom that makes do by making tech like the pokech and x-tranciever(the actual 'companies' are just a public comm line) a lot of the citizens seem like they have some ancestry from the ralts line. I should bring this info to the king and try to make contact.

There are friends of mine who are from that old kingdom, and they've said that a lot of them have ancestry, mostly with the Abra line.

As for making contact, being very secretive and keeping to themselves (owing to a very dark past), contact is difficult. It is also a police state almost universally (so you'd need very special permissions, which I managed to get (some good contacts in the old kingdom, including the Human/Alakazam hybrid mentioned earlier in the thread)) so that would make contact even harder.
