PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Confusion is clearly superior to Charge Beam, having better damage output and coverage.
  • Dazzling Gleam is objectively Gardevoir’s best charge move and gives Gardevoir its trademark Fairy-type coverage.
  • Shadow Ball can allow Gardevoir to attack into resisted Psychic-type Pokemon, but other Pokemon handle this role readily.
  • Psychic is underwhelming in the face of Dazzling Gleam.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Confusion reigns supreme as one of the greatest fast moves on defense.
  • Dazzling Gleam threatens Dark-type counters while Shadow Ball hits Steel and Fire-types better. Neither are particularly hard to dodge.
  • Charge Beam and Psychic are underwhelming in every aspect.

PVE Overview

By lacking a Fairy-type fast move, Gardevoir is left in an awkward spot. As a Psychic-type attacker, Gardevoir is outclassed by Alakazam and Espeon in terms of moves and stats. As a Fairy-type attacker, Gardevoir doesn’t have a fast move effective against Dragon-types and Dark-types, so other Pokemon are better suited in those roles. However, it is a fantastic attacker against fighting types. It hits with dual-STAB super effective attacks, double-resisting fighting moves, and getting a boost to Dazzling Gleam in cloudy weather which also boosts fighting-types. Just watch out for Heavy Slam and other steel moves!

As a defender, Gardevoir threatens common gym attackers, namely Dragonite and Machamp, with a double resistance to their attacks and a super effective STAB Dazzling Gleam. Its bulk is not awful, but it still leaves something to be desired.

The future also looks fairly bright for Gardevoir, as it receives a particularly elegant mega-evolution in the main series. Of course, how/when/if that is implemented in Go remains to be seen.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Confusion+Shadow Ball and Dazzling Gleam

Confusion is a great attack on Gardevoir, hitting for a very good 4 DPT (Damage Per Turn) plus STAB, and 3 EPT (Energy Per Turn). It compliments Dazzling Gleam (110 Power/70 Energy) very well coverage-wise and hits the most of the plethora of dragons in the tier very hard, though it's also very slow-charging for such a generally frail Pokemon. Shadow Ball (100 Power/55 Energy) is actually the preferred move despite lacking STAB due to its wide neutral coverage, high power, and low energy cost. It lets Gardevoir hit its fellow Psychic types such as Lugia very hard, and also allows it to punish Ghost types that would seek to pick it off. It also allows Gardevoir to get in a good dig in the event of a counter switching in.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1 / 5

Gardevoir has very little if any use in the Great League, as its unique tools are restricted by its low CP.

Ultra League: 2 / 5

Gardevoir is restricted, but usable in the Ultra League. It can come in on many Dragon types thanks to its fairy typing and has a great moveset for PVP, but it's countered by too many top Pokemon to be too worthwhile. Even against the Fighting types that it counters so well, Gardevoir has to be cautious of coverage moves that could KO it before dealing meaningful damage.

Master League: 3 / 5

Gardevoir has many key matchups in the Master League due to its typing and great moveset. It can take down common threats such as Dragonite, Machamp, and Palkia. Gardevoir can also defeat Giratina-Altered one-on-one if it's packing Dragon Pulse, which is a huge boon.However, it also loses hard to Dialga, Heatran, Giratina-Origin, Melmetal, and Shadow Ball Mewtwo, just to name a few. As should be obvious by now, Gardevoir is a good Pokemon on paper, but it's held back due to being countered by so many of the top players in the league.
