- Substitute/Ice Punch
This is the only set you will need for Mega Gallade. A set that is designed to shred team with overwhelming force. After one Sword Dance, Mega Gallade’s Attack reaches tremendous height. And when coupled with Sword Dance, Mega Gallade hits very hard. Knock Off offers Mega Gallade with great coverage, able to hit defensive Ghosts and Psychics Pokemon hard, meanwhile providing almost neutral coverage (besides fairies). Mega Gallade’s immense strength can often force a switch allowing you to setup a free Substitute. Giving you free reigns next turn to use Sword Dance or go on the offensive. Although, 110 base Speed is good and without Shadow Sneak, Mega Gallade can be revenged killed by fast and hard hitting Pokemon. Therefore, it is important to remove all potential threats and check to M-Gallade before proceeding to sweep.
