Ralts 100% perfect IV stats in Pokemon Go

This week''s Spotlight Hour is a fantastic opportunity to catch a Ralts with excellent IV statistics.

Perfect means two things in Pokemon Go, depending on how you intend to use a given Pokemon. First, there is the maxed out, 100% IV version, which you''ve chosen for your 4* Pokedex, raids, and Master League. However, because of how CP is calculated using three statistics, a perfect IV Pokemon is generally only ever the best version of itself in the Master League.

Without getting caught the IV of a Pokemon first, you may easily select the perfect Ralts based on the CP.

If youre at Level 30 (or above), you will ideally be looking for the following CPs for a perfect 15/15/15 Ralts:

The wild CP value is aligned with your Trainer Level until you reach Level 30 and, due to the majority of the player base now being above this level, weve kept these values for the sake of simplicity. These values will, however, be different if youre currently below Level 30.

Is there a shiny Ralts in Pokemon Go?

Yep, Pokemon Go has a shiny Ralts, which appears to be better than the original!

On the game''s 20th Community Day, the shiny form for Ralts was released in August 2019. If you find one, you can transform it into a shiny Kirlia and a shiny Gardevoir or a shiny Gallade.

If luck is on your side, you may find a shiny Ralts in the wild, but be aware that this is not a Community Day, and shiny rates aren''t increased, therefore the chances of getting one, let alone the perfect one, are very low. That said, each Ralt you see has the potential to be shiny, so its purely a numbers game and you can see what you get.

What does shiny Ralts look like?

Ralts, and their evolutions, adopt a beautiful blue instead of the grassy green of the originals. It''s ''fins,'' for wanting of a better word, and become orange instead of red, with Gallade''s fin becoming a much darker grey.

Other tips for this Spotlight Hour

Out of trying to catch a shiny Ralts in Pokemon Go, there are a few other useful reasons to partake in this week''s Spotlight Hour:

  • The best reason is, of course, the double catch XP bonus running throughout the hour. This applies to all Pokemon caught, so do your best to get good at Excellent Curve Ball throws on a Ralts to quickly rack up the XP!
  • If you''''re a newcomer, this Spotlight Hour is the perfect time to collect enough Ralts candy to fully evolve this Pokemon and enter all of its evolutions in the Pokedex. This is pretty important as it will require 250 Candy to get all four Pokemon in your Pokedex.
  • Thanks to Ralts being a fairy and psychic-type, catching a bunch during this Spotlight Hour will add progress to your fairy and psychic-type catch bonus medals.

Events such as the Spotlight Hour typically last for an hour - from 6pm to 7pm (local time) and next week''s is Aron and double catch treats.

Are Gardevoir and Gallade good in PVP?

How do Gardevoir and Gallade''s Ralts evolves? PVP, also known as competing against other players in Battle League, is a key feature.

Ralts is one of those Pokemon that can transform into two different final Pokemon. For 25 Candy, you may use 100 Candies and a Sinnoh Stone to transform any Kirlia into a Gardevoir. Gardevoir is a psychic/fairy type, like Ralts, whereas Gallade is a psychic/fighting type.

Due to their type differences, Gardevoir is generally better in Great League and Master League, running Charm, Shadow Ball, and Synchonoise. Gallade, on the other hand, is slighly better in Ultra League, running Confusion, Close Combat, and Leaf Blade. Interestingly, the Shadow version is almost always recommended, no matter which Pokemon or League, with the exception of Ultra League Gallade, where the regular version outperforms its Shadow equivalent.

In a little more detail, let''s examine each other in an individual.


Shadow Gardevoir is a top-10 fairy type, and it just misses out on the top-5 for pscyhic individuals. While it''s a perfect match, with wins against Scrafty, Medicham, Sableye, and Trevenant, it does lose pretty hard to Galarian Stunfisk and Skarmory, with further losses (albeit losses) against Lanturn, Azumarill, and Swampert.

This is because despite Charm''s rapid move pressure, it''s still a slow glass cannon that applies low shield pressure. If you want to increase your defense by running the regular instead of the Shadow variant, you will pick up victories against Obstagoon, but start losing to Trevenant instead. This isn''t really worth it in the long run.

Gardevoir is really taking a hit on Ultra League, claiming it''s missing out on the top 15 for fairy and only bucking down on the top 15 for psychic types. It still beats the dark types (Scraft and friends), but still loses to Glarian Stunfisk and Swampert, both of whom are demons in this meta. By and large, you probably don''t want to run Gardevoir in Ultra League.

Gardevoir makes a return in Master League with similar rankings to the Great League. Dragons are overrepresented in Master League, but Gardevoir points out wins against Dragonite, Garchomp, Zekrm, and Dialga, with a sneaky win against Gyarados (which is somehow not a dragon).

Gardevoir doesn''t lose the most difficult (or as quickly) as in the lower leagues, with losses against Excadrill, Lugia, Mewtwo, Zacian, and Giratina Origin being relatively close matches (albiet, again, losses).

The TL;DR: on Gardevoir is that it is a glass cannon that delivers some excellent but slow attacks. You''re looking for an 0/15/15 for Great League, or a perfect 15/15/15 for Master League.


Gallade is a bit underwhelming in the Great League, ranking in the top 15 for psychic but missing out on the top 30 for fighting types. Close Combat is quite technical, in the long run, with the grass-type Leaf Blade being screened for coverage. All while, it maintains the same probems as Gardevoir in the format of a huge, windy, glass cannon.

If you want to run a Great League Gallage, it counts up wins against Bastiodon, Medicham, Azumarill, Lanturn, and Nidoqueen, which is a substantial chunk of the top of the meta. However, Swampert, Glaraian Stundusk, Trevenant, and eveb Scrafty are all equally good to be able to defeat.

It''s just Ultra League, where you may want to look at Gallade, who is a top-10 psychic type (and only a top-30 fighting type) here, flipping the match-up on both Swampert Scrafty, while also defeating Walrien and Galaran Stunfisk. This is mostly for the same reason as before it''s a technical Pokemon that simply lacks the bulk you''d want, no matter how spammy the quick move is.

Gallade isn''t awful in the Master League, but it defeats Dialgo, Garchomp, and Gyarados, as well as defeating metagross and Zacian. While it does pick up wins against Galarian Zapdos, Melmetal, Kyogre, and Excadrill, there are just better options when it comes to Master League.

Gallade is a glass cannon, but is somewhat spammier by dropping Charm, and has a STAB move that self-debuffs. You''re looking for an 0/12/15 for Ultra League, or a perfect 15/15/15 for Master League.
