Welcome back, Trainers! In this installment of Generation Preparation, we'll take a look at the male-only evolution of Kirlia, Gallade.
CATEGORY: Blade Pokémon
TYPE: Psychic / Fighting
HEIGHT: 5' 03"
WEIGHT: 114.6 lbs.
MAX CP: 2964
Gallade is the second evolved form of Kirlia. In the main-series games, a Shiny Stone and male Kirlia was needed for the evolution.
PLACE IN THE META: Gallade will be good addition to Pokémon GO. Machamp and Blaziken will still be better on the Fighting-type front thanks to their access to Counter, and Mewtwo will be a better Psychic-type attacker thanks to its massive Attack stat. But that does not mean Gallade won't be useful, assuming to gets access to good moves.
Gallade is a Psychic- and Fighting-type. This makes it weak to Flying-, Ghost-, and Fairy-type attacks, as well as resistant to Fighting- and Rock-type attacks.
LIKELY MOVEPOOL: Out of the Fast Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Gallade:
Out of the Charged Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Gallade:
Should Niantic add any new moves, the following are good candidates for Gallade's movepool:
LOOKING AHEAD: Looking beyond Generation 4, Gallade gains no evolution or exclusive Z-Move. It does have a Mega Evolution, which was first seen in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
Thanks for reading, Trainers!
