How to Evolve Ralts into Kirlia in Pokémon Scarlet & Purple

Ralts and its third evolution, Gardevoir, have become one of the most popular Pokémon. This evolutionary line returns in Pokémon Scarlet and Purple. You can encounter these Pokemon quite early on, which may leave you wondering when Ralts evolves into Pokemon Scarlet and Purple.

What level does Ralts evolve in Pokémon Scarlet and Purple?

Ralts will evolve into Kirlia in Pokémon Scarlet and Purple when it reaches level 20. After evolving into Kirlia, this Psychic/Fairy-type Pokémon can become two different Pokémon. These are Gardevoir and Gallade, both of which have different methods of evolution.


At what level does Kirlia evolve into Gardevoir and Gallade in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?

Once Ralts evolves into Kirlia at level 20, he will evolve into either Gardevoir or Gallade. Upon reaching level 30, Kirlia will evolve into Gardevoir, regardless of gender. However, if you have a male Kirlia, you can give it a Dawnstone to evolve it into Gallade. This can be done at any level, so you don’t have to wait until level 30 to evolve Kirlia into Gallade.

Gardevoir and Gallade are both excellent Pokémon, so you have to decide whether you prefer a physical or special attacker. Additionally, Gallade drops Kirlia’s Fairy type and is instead Psychic/Fighting type. We recommend looking at your team and other Pokemon before deciding which version you choose.
