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~

Thanks :D
I like to look at things in a different angle sometimes. And seeing the meaning about Gardevoir's name and stuff, I went that way. Haha

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.

Yeah... I often wonder if they forgot that Gardevoir can also be a male gender. >.>;

I like pokemon that seem one gender but can be both.  Machoke! For one.

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).

True. I'm guessing it's because Kalos is considered a "fancy" region (Ex: When you go to battle Diantha, Parfum Palace, etc.), but I prefer this version anyway ^^. I'm surprised this hasn't made into a sprite yet though...

I think so too. XD They were more just like "Let's give it a poofy dress." "Alright." *Makes  a poofy dress and alters a couple things* "BEST.MEGA.EVER."
But thank you >w<

Yeah I'm a little sad with how Gardevoir looks in its Mega form. Kinda looks a little silly. But I think I see where they were going with it.

The only similarities is the wings and the 'scarf' going down her sides, other than that, it just looks like you both used the same pokemon as a base, its not exactly unheard of to imagine angel as a mega form or evolution, while I admit your was created a few years prior, it's unlikely that it was an inspiration in any way, shape or form to this for various reasons; such as a radically different design and colour scheme, different body types, and overall artistic style, which can be seen from other artwork in the respective galleries.

Yes! This is perfect for what I expect Gardevoir's Mega form would be... If they ever put one in that is lol
Even now that she can resist Dark and Bug to x1 damage now and immune to dragon attacks... but now weak to posion and steel, and kept the ghost weakness... oh well, but my Expectastions on the fairy type came true lol.
Love Gardevoir it's my 2nd favorite pokemon and would really hope to get a mega evolution, and really hopes it looks close to what you got here, but most importantly the wings lol

I hope Gardevoir looks similar to mine. haha. Then I could be all "I CALLED IT!" *shot*
I think Gardevoir is really pretty and it's on my top five favorite Pokemon too. They're really strong in battle, which makes them even cooler. Haha. I'm excited they made it a fairy type though. It suits Gardevoir, to me XD

It's extremely unlikely that the company will use this design due to intellectual property, and the ensuing legality of the issue, even if the company never saw your design, if a single person pointed it out, they would have to either buy the rights to it (and would include royalities and requesting permission to use it in EVERY aspect, if it appears in the anime, they need a precise legal documentation saying they are permitted to use it, same for games and other forms of media.) or completely change their own design so it can't be seen as another's design, or a third option would be to put you in staff, and make you sign a waiver that says they can use it forever and you get a tiny mention in the credits and nothing else.

Although, this does look almost exactly like what I imagined for Mega Garevoir when I was musing over potential designs, only different is there weren't any lines on her side pretty much.

(Nod of approval) Good work on winning the contest.

I know it's unlikely XD It's just all a thought and what if sort of thing. It's all good for me either way. I just drew it basically as how I interpreted it. And if they did something similar, that's pretty cool. If not? It's still cool anyways. I basically was going on a "what if?" sort of thing. :3

Thanks though! 8D
