Mangled French, maybe... If it sounded French, it would be pronounced gar-duh-VWAH, not GAR-deh-vwar.


Garde = guard.
Devoir = duty.

That said, the Pokemon franchise has never had the most accurate pronunciations. I'm looking at you, Feh-roth-thorn.

I know the words are French, I was just commenting on the mangled pronunciation.

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.


America and France have also been mentioned in the games. Probably a few others too.

Lt. Surge is the Lightning American (I presume 'United States of').
Gastly can smother an Indian elephant.
Mew was found in South America.
Arcanine and Parasect get references to China.
At Saffron City, an NPC is worried about being transferred to Russia.
Fletching is a "Japanese Robin" Pokemon.

etc.

I thought it was because of Gallade being part fighting to be honest.
