Mega Gardevoir by Digital-Banshee Mega Gardevoir by Digital-Banshee
On Lake Valor Forums ( lakevalor.net/forums/ ) they had a Create a Pokemon contest. This week's theme was based on the new Mega Form of Pokemon in X and Y. But you had to use a Pokemon that was not announced to have a form yet. So I decided to pick Gardevoir. Electrode was mainly a joke to make people laugh and make myself feel better XD

I did what I did because Gardevoir's meaning is along the lines of; "Knight" and "Protector." Plus in the pokedex it says that Gardevoir will protect their trainer, even if it results in the end of itself. So basically it's a protector of sorts. Taking these ideas in, I decided to go with a sort-of angelic appearance for it. A guardian angel. What better protector could there be for something elegant but strong like that? :)

Plus Gardevoir has to be my top-favorite Psychic pokemon. It's so pretty *u*


Update: My Gardevoir won the contest 8D Yeeee! So happy~

Forgive my lateness.  I do.  This should've been the official since gardevoir is a guardian pokemon whose name means "chevalier" or guardian (soldier).

It's okay!
I would have been tickled if they selected my Gardevoir as an official design XD
But yes! That's what I was going for with my design. I saw the name meanings and rolled with it.
Though, I can see why they made the design decision with theirs. But I don't personally think it really fits.

The main design is very feminine and ignores the male gardevoir and elegance as a whole.  They should have done a knight-like style or an angel for the meaning, not a bell-flower.

This image is what made Gardevoir my second fav! (Ok, one of many reasons, but this is no.1 reason) I agree with everyone else here: I also prefer this version than the real one, especially because it looks more like a angel/guardian, making sense of it protecting it's trainer to the end. I like this so much, I want to add some sort of background to it if you don't mind (though it's ok if you don't want me too). Nice work tho! "Adds to favorites" ^^

Sure go ahead and make a background for it! :D I wanna see it, if you do! >w<
In the contest, it was supposed to have an empty background. So that's one reason why I didn't put one there. The other reason was because I stink at them. Lol!

Yeah I kinda wish it wasn't...so poofy in the game. It looks really weird :c But I can see what direction they were going in. Though, I just don't really like it. (their version anyways Haha).

Thanks! And yeah, they tried to give it a royal look or something, but it doesn't look right to me as well.

Yeah it's kinda weird for me. lol
Wish they stuck with the name meaning. It would have made more sense xD
