I like it because of its design and because it was a useful teammate in RSE. And it might be in considering there was a Kirlia in the reveal trailer. --- Official Houndoom of the Pokemon XY boards. http://i.imgur.com/rNgxY.png
Because it has an elegant appearance, and is extremely loyal. How can you dislike something that will literally sacrifice its life to save its trainer? Also he was very helpful during my first playthrough of Emerald. --- Badge Case [Time Badge] StrifeHart is my OTP. services performed at BSC: 2 Riley's Boyfriend on the Pokemon BW2 & X boards.

S/he's cute and elegant, gets a kickass branching evo in Gallade, and has an above average special attack stat. Not needing a trade to evolve unlike Alakazam also increases it's effectiveness in-game immensely.
On a side note, Gardevoir wouldn't be obtainable in the wild(never was) if included, it would be Ralts and Kirlia that would be found in tall grass. --- Asketh Ky to Sol, "Heaven or Hell?" and Sol, being of Gear did say "Let's Rock." Roman Cancels 1:14
