How exactly would I go about building a VGC team?
either try building a simple team (read: 252 / 252 spreads and something like ttar, meta, cress, hitmontop, thundurus etc. with thundy and cress knowing swagger and swagger boosting the rest of your team) or you could copy a well known team such as ray's worlds team, cybertron's team that he uses for every event, etc.

Is Gardevoir viable on a Trick Room team, or is it simply too fast?
Gardevoir and chandelure are on the same speed bracket, both have a base speed of 80. About the viability it really depend on your team, with a lot of support chandy is a complete beast, but in the hand of a common player it became really useless thanks to it common weakness and it frail defense.

Gallade gain more usage as physical attacker + TR setter because he has no competition on that department (I mean fighting STAB + TR) but in the case of Gardevoir she have a lot of competition from Cresselia for a bulky supporter + TR ( IMO, even Uxie is better).
 
Thanks for the responses guys. I know normally there would be many superior pokemon to use over Gardevoir, but I'm making a Hoenn-only team for fun (its actually shaping up pretty well) and I needed a good user of Heal Pulse to provide recovery to Dusclops, Camerupt (for Eruption) and Wailord (for Water Spout). At this point, however, I'm thinking I probably won't use Heal Pulse support anyway, so w/e.

oops, well uhm you might need an exception though, kind of a big gimmick, how about a gimmicky srategy instead instaed of a gimmicky retriction? what i would say would be audino, im really not sure.i dont have that big of a knowledge on every moveset like that. but chansey knows heal pulse ithink. sorry for my ignorance and no help
 
Hydreigon (F) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 244 HP / 252 SAtk / 12 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Dark Pulse
- Draco Meteor
- Focus Blast
- Fire Blast

However in the same article the user said that he would like to replace Focus Blast with Earth Power since it's more accurate and earth power is a good special ground move. I use the same Hydreigon with the exception that Earth Power replaces Focus Blast.

hi friends, that would be me. At the time, only BW moves could be used, but if BW2 were allowed, I would probably go for a move set of Draco / Dark Pulse / Earth Power / Fire Blast or maybe Heat Wave. Also, 44 Speed is a better number. It allows you to outspeed Timid Max Speed Scarf Abomasnow.
