It's because Gardevoir's name is french, and Kalos is based on France. Sorry if old news.

So Frenchmen are fairies, but not while they're overseas?

Since when did Pokemon have nationalities? Only time I ever recall that being stated was Arcanine's Gold Pokedex entry, which said it was of Chinese origin.

No, they were implying Arcanine were first discovered in China.

... I may have created a monster....

I meant nothing disparaging towards France or it's people, I meant that when GF was looking at old pokemon to retype to fairy, they saw Gardevoir and realized it's name was based on French, so it would be a good pokemon to have in Kalos, which is based on France.
