Gardevoir can have one of three abilities: Synchronize, which will send a Poison, Paralysis, or Burn condition that it receives back to its opponent, unless the opponent is immune to said condition; or Trace, which copies the Special Ability of the opponent upon entering battle, unless the battle is a Double Battle, which causes it to receive a random opponent's ability. Its third ability is limited to Gardevoir from the Dream World: the Telepathy Ability, which prevents damage from teammates' attacks during Double and Triple Battles; the Pokémon will avoid the moves such as Surf, Earthquake, or Explosion, for examples.
Ralts can evolve into a Kirlia starting at Level 20. From here, it can evolve into a Gardevoir starting at Level 30. Gardevoir is one of the final evolutions of Ralts; the other final evolution can be obtained if a Male Kirlia has a Dawn Stone used on it to evolve into a Gallade.

Gardevoir's Manga info is unknown as of writing.
Gardevoir is a part of the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. With a great offensive typing and high Special Attack stat, Gardevoir can be quite the offensive force in the tier. Gardevoir's decent Special Defense allows for it to switch into defensive Pokémon like Suicune and Florges. Trace can be quite a useful ability, as it allows Gardevoir to copy useful abilities like Flash Fire, Swift Swim, or Sheer Force. Gardevoir's best set is its Choice Scarf set that can bolster Gardevoir's Speed stat and make it a potent revenge killer due to great STAB attacks in Moonblast and Psychic as well as team supporter with either Healing Wish or Memento and Trick to cripple special walls. A Calm Mind boosts Gardevoir's Special Attack to ridiculously high levels and allows it take advantage of defensive teams with Substitute to beat Pokémon like Florges. A Choice Specs set gives Gardevoir immediate power right off the bat, and with great coverage options in Focus Blast and Shadow Ball to complement its STAB attacks, Gardevoir can be a scary wallbreaker to deal with. While Gardevoir is a strong offensive threat, its physical defense is extremely poor, which leaves it to be easy pickings for Pokémon like Entei, Krookodile, and Mega Aerodactyl. Gardevoir's Speed is decent to allow it to outspeed Pokémon like Feraligatr, but it is not high enough for it to not be outsped by a great number of threats.
