Theory on why Gardevoir is Fairy-Type

#1InfamousTouyaPosted 2/23/2014 2:49:55 AM
Gardevoir is Fairy type.

Fairy > Dragon

Gardevoir is based off a knight.

Knights defeat dragons.

Kalos is partially medieval (AZs war and all).

It's girly-looking, and fairy is the girly type.

Notice how Gallade loses the fairy typing.

Gallade focuses less on the mystical and more on the physical, and it's portrayed as having a strong sense of honor. The Fairy type isn't as suited for a Pokemon like that.

Also it doesn't have it because it's basically a retconned line.

They're Dark types and the fluff puts emphasis on them fighting aggressively. They're also not very knight-ish because they're likely based on Japanese thug/villain figures.

To be fair gardevoir is called sirknight in Japan and gardevoir sort of means must protect, which is something knights do. Also, why is fairy girly? Because you said so?

What about the Togepi family, and the more male than female Eevee to Sylveon family?

I read that as Pawniard and Bisharp. Apologies.

That said, there's nothing particularly protective or noble about the Pokemon. They only get armor by stealing it.

Knightish in a way that they would protect you. It says that in Gardevoirs pokedex entry, it will protect its trainer at all cost.

Well, Gardehoir is more of a masculine magical knight. (Think, magical knights are feminine, but Gardevoir can be male, thus making it a 'masculine' magical knight.)

Gallade is sort of a knight, but he's more like a swordsman/samurai.

Escavalier is I guess based on a armored man, while Bisharp is related to a thief like Greninja.
