Gardevoir, Kirlia and Ralts

pokemon go gardevoir

Pokemon GO Gardevoir (max CP 2964), Kirlia and Ralts are very exciting additions to the game, bringing a top tier fairy typed family to Pokemon GO. Gardevoir best moveset is by far Confusion / Dazzling Gleam, as explained below. Gardevoir is the best fairy type currently in game.

Stat wise, Gardevoir family is a glass cannon family, with stats heavily skewed towards a Attack and Defense, with low Stamina. Gardevoir has a very high Max CP (2964) and its ATK (237) and DEF (220) top a lot of First and Second Generation competitors.

If you’re looking for an amazing fairy type, look no further.

Gardevoir in the Pokémon GO metagame

We already stated that Gardevoir has a very high CP (2964), backed with high ATK (237) and high DEF (220), but is that enough to recommend this Pokemon for your team? It turns out it is.

Gardevoir is a wonderful addition to the Pokemon GO Meta and it’s also the best fairy type currently available in game. Given it’s typing, we can say that (finally) a true fairy typed Dragonite killer has appeared in Pokemon GO. Gardevoir has access to several solid movesets, but we recommend going with Confusion / Dazling Gleam and melting anything that comes in your way.

PRO TIP
A successful Gardevoir needs to dodge in Pokémon GO. There is no escaping from its measly STAMINA (136), so proper dodging is a must.
