Psyshock Build Explanation

This build focuses on providing AoE crowd control and damage using Psychic and Psyshock from afar. For maximum effect, it's best to hit all three (3) Psyshock pulses to reduce its cooldown. Mean Boom can also be used instead of Psychic.

  • Wise Glasses provides a large Sp. Atk. boost thanks to its percentage bonus effect.
  • Choice Specs adds more Sp. Atk. and increases Gardevoir's minimum move damage.
  • Slick Spoon further increases Gardevoir's Sp. Atk. stat and gives it Sp. Def. penetration, improving its damage output even more.
  • Energy Amplifier can be a replacement for Slick Spoon, maximizing Gardevoir's damage output when it uses Fairy Singularity.
  • Eject Button gives Gardevoir the mobility it needs to keep a safe distance and chase or escape enemies.
  • X Speed can also work for the same purpose.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems for more damage and 7 Black Emblems for cooldown reduction. This can be achieved by equipping at least three (3) Emblems that are both Green and Black.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk to maximize Gardevoir's damage output.
  • Attack, Critical-Hit Rate, Sp. Def., and Defense can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build is centered on Psyshock and Psychic, equipping items that will maximize their damage is the ideal item combination.

Out of all the item combinations, Wise Glasses, Choice Specs, and Slick Spoon will suit Gardevoir's needs the best. Although the item combination did not produce the best results, it doesn't require stacking or expending a Unite Move to reach the maximum damage possible. It provides consistent damage boost throughout the match.

As for alternatives, replacing Wise Glasses with Energy Amplifier would be the best option. The item combination had the best results, but it does require Gardevoir to use Fairy Singularity first to gain the full damage boost.


These damage tests are conducted in Practice Mode with Goodra as the Training Partner. The Pokemon is set to level 15 and has no items equipped. The results are taken by substracting the Pokemon's max HP and its HP after taking damage.

The numbers in bold are the highest result for a specific test.

Future Sight Build Explanation

This build is centered on stunning targets with Moonblast then following up with Future Sight from afar. The key to this build is to constantly hit opponents with Future Sight to trigger its cooldown reduction mechanic.

  • Wise Glasses provides a large Sp. Atk. boost thanks to its percentage bonus effect.
  • Choice Specs adds more Sp. Atk. and increases Gardevoir's minimum move damage.
  • Slick Spoon further increases Gardevoir's Sp. Atk. stat and gives it Sp. Def. penetration, improving its damage output even more.

How to Play Gardevoir

Jump to Section

Play Safe Until Level 5

Gardevoir is an attacker reaching their potential in mid to late game, similar to Cinderace. Due to this, she suffers from an extremely weak early game. Stay away from enemies and only try to help out with poke from your Confusion.

Play Near Your Goal Zone or in Grass

During the early game where Gardevoir is weakest, enemy Speedsters and All-Rounders will try to abuse this by being aggressive. Avoid extending in the main lanes and safely farm near your Goal Posts or in grass. Unless you have ample back up, or can confirm a KO, be prepared to use Teleport defensively. Otherwise, attack from long distances if your allies are fighting.

Utilize Your Moves' Long Range

Since Gardevoir is a fragile Pokemon, it's best to utilize your moves' long cast range and deal damage from a safe distance, especially during fights. Try to stay behind tanky allies like Snorlax and let them soak the damage while you use your moves from afar.

Steal Boss Pokemon

Another use for Gardevoir's long cast range is stealing boss Pokemon like Regirock from your enemies. It's best to use Psyshock or Future Sight since they deal the most damage.

Double Boosted Attacks with Teleport

Maximizing what damage you can do is essential to help your team during the laning phase. Since Teleport boosts the next basic attack, hitting the opponent with boosted attack then teleporting for another boosted attack allows you to surprise enemies with a small amount of Burst. Follow this up with Confusion for more damage.

Teleport: Gardevoir Move Effect and Cooldown

Aim Psyshock While Moving

Psyshock is a unique skill that fires 3 AoEs that can be aimed while moving so make sure to reposition while using this skill to maximize its damage. It also reduces the cooldown of both your moves by 1 second per hit, so maximizing its duration is a must for mastering Gardevoir.

Psyshock: Gardevoir Move Effect and Cooldown

Abilities Can Be Cast While Using Psyshock

You can also use your other move while channeling Psyshock, allowing you to use Psychic while casting Psyshock or nuke enemies with Fairy Singularity.

Use Fairy Singularity to Start Team Fights or Trap Enemies

Since Fairy Singularity draws in enemies in the affected area, it's a great setup tool for teamfights. Use it in situations where teams clash in goal zones or when taking on objectives.

Haven't tried gardevoir out yet, But i think based on opponents' gameplay with it, Moonblast & psyshock would be best.

I think Gardevoir shouldn't be A because it is very useful. I think Gardevoir should be S, SS, or OP.
