    GALLADE (Clean Up) @ TwistedSpoon
    Adamant/Steadfast
    252 Attack, 252 Speed, 4 HP
    Psycho Cut
    Close Combat
    Swords Dance
    Leaf Blade

    ----

    I'm keeping Gallade because he's shiny and Adamant and I love him.[/QUOTE]

    I've been using a gallade and a Gardevior for a while now (i'm a little jealous that you have a shiny one) but mine knows nightslash instead of close combat i also gave him a scope lense to hold though this is only on pearl I dont have white yet.

    Night Slash? Really?

    Close Combat is really good because not only does it have 120 base power, but with STAB, that's boosted to 180. Such a number makes Night Slash's base power of 70 seem meek in comparison.

    I do understand the draw of high Critical Hit ratio, especially with Scope Lens. However, he sort of already gets that from Psycho Cut, which has added STAB.

    Night Slash covers:
    Psychic
    Ghost

    Close Combat covers:
    Normal
    Rock
    Steel
    Ice
    Dark

    So yeah, Close Combat has better coverage. Additionally, because its power is more than twice that of Night Slash, it would actually do more damage regularly than a Critical Hit from Night Slash would (Night Slash CH: power 140; Close Combat without a CH: power 180).

    I guess it all comes down to personal preference in the end, but it still seems to me like Psycho Cut has the same gimmick as Night Slash, and with STAB, it's generally a better choice.

    However, Night Slash covers Gallade's weakness to Ghost, which might be worth considering. I still prefer Close Combat, though.

    Even if things get heavy, we'll all float on alright

    Mine knows Psychic, Close Combat, Leaf Blade, & Swords Dance. He's the attacker in my group. Is this something to consider?

    That's pretty good, but you might want to consider switching Psychic for Psycho Cut. While Psychic does have a base power of 90 and Psycho Cut has a base power of 70, Psychic is a special attack. Psycho Cut is a physical attack. Gallade, whose base physical attack stat is 125, will be able to do much more damage with Psycho Cut. To compare, his special attack stat is about half that--65.

    So yeah, Psycho Cut is much better than Psychic. Also, if you're using Swords Dance, then Psycho Cut will benefit; Psychic won't.

    As for my Gallade, I've been looking at X-Scissor as a replacement for Leaf Blade, but I'm not sure yet.

    ehh... i say keep leaf blade. X-scissor is great, but close combat already covers most things that does major damage to, and that leaf blade is essential to prevent yourself getting walled out against swampert, carracosta, and some others. Youd really only gain a single benefit from X-Scissor, where with Leaf Blade your type coverage is FAR greater.

    I was considering that...

    However, in the end, I decided that I wanted Meteor Mash. Despite inferior coverage, it has a lot of power, and the 30% chance of Attack boost is quite nice.

    Quick Claw is essentially ousted by the presence of Bullet Punch.

    Basically, I go in, set up Stealth Rock, take a hit or two, and Explode. Standard Suicide Lead stuff, I guess.

    Switching out Zen Headbutt for Meteor Mash might be something to consider, actually... thanks
