I’m still looking for TRU Darkrai. If you are reading this and feel like helping me out feel free to e-mail me. I’ll trade you well for it. Same goes for Gamestop Deoxys. Thanks =)


Gallade is not so different of Gardevoir, their stats are just different. Gallade has a very cool type combination and its one of my favorite Pokémon of this generation. Its attack and special defense are good but unfortunately it should definitely have more speed to be a lot better.


The movesets for today are…


Phisical Sweeper.
Gallade@Salac berry.
Nature: Adamant (+ Attack, - Special attack), Jolly (+ Speed, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Attack / 252 Speed / 6 HP.
- Endure / Night slash
- Psyccho cut
- Close combat / Brick break
- Stone edge / Rock slide


Let Salac berry activate for that extra speed we need. Endure is a good strategy, but if you find it difficult to use, then sweep as much as you can hoping to earn that extra speed anytime.


Choice scarfer.
Gallade@Choice scarf.
Nature: Adamant (+ Attack, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Attack / 252 Speed / 6 HP.
- Night slash / Leaf blade
- Psycho cut
- Close combat / Brick break
- Stone edge / Rock slide


Hit and run, another good way to have that speed Gallade doesn’t have in normal conditions.


Critical sweeper.
Gallade@Scope lens.
Nature: Jolly (+ Speed, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Attack / 252 Speed / 6 HP.
- Stone edge / Leaf blade
- Psycho cut
- Night slash
- Close combat / Brick break


With a little luck, you will crush your foe with critical hits and a good combination of types. It’s a great and fun moveset to use if you feel lucky.


Swords dancer.
Gallade@Lum berry.
Nature: Jolly (+ Speed, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Attack / 252 Speed / 6 HP.
- Stone edge / Leaf blade / Night slash
- Psycho cut / Close combat
- Earthquake / Poison jab / Will-o-wisp / Thunder wave
- Swords dance


It is hard to use swords dance with Gallade because its lack of speed, but if you manage to do it predicting a switch or protecting Gallade somehow, you will be unstoppable. A hard set, but very effective.



It is capable of taking hits and cause great damage thanks to some critical hits. If you manage to boost its speed, you will love Gallade.



Physical walls as Cresselia or Skarmory are pretty effective. Otherwise use status affections as sleep or poison. Faster physical sweepers may cause massive damage as well.


Bottom line.

We’ll continue this alternate evolution series next week, sorry for all these delays guys and girls…





Hope you enjoyed.
