Copyediting Gardevoir (Psychic) (GP: 0/1)

[SET]
name: Choice Scarf (Psychic)
move 1: Moonblast

nature: Timid

Gardevoir is a fantastic Choice Scarf user for Psychic teams thanks to its Fairy typing and Moonblast, which allows it to revenge kill otherwise troublesome Dark-types. It is also a fantastic check to weather-focused types such as Water and Ground, as it can easily dispatch of their respective weather abusers, such as Barraskewda and Excadrill, thanks to Trace and good coverage in Energy Ball and Focus Blast. Thus, Choice Scarf is a necessity to revenge kill these sweepers after their ability has been copied. Psychic is a great STAB option that prevents Gardevoir from being walled by Poison-types like Toxapex, while Healing Wish can be used late-game to allow a weakened teammate to clean up. Maximum Special Attack and Speed investment maximizes Gardevoir's offensive capabilities as it does not need to invest in bulk.

Every Pokemon on Psychic appreciates Gardevoir's ability to manage Dark-types, as they are a large threat to the type. Specifically, frailer offensive threats such as Indeedee and Gallade greatly value Gardevoir's ability to keep weather abusers in check. Gardevoir is walled by bulky Steel-types such as Aegislash and Corviknight, thus making Pokemon that can wear them down, such as Hatterene, good partners. Furthermore, hazard support from the likes of Bronzong and Mew makes cleaning with Gardevoir late-game much easier, as Gardevoir often falls short of KOing opposing Pokemon without sufficient chip damage.

I think you should add the specific Pokemon you're targeting with Energy Ball and Focus Blast of weather sweepers. Also add a sentence about Choice Scarf since that's what really makes it outspeed weather sweepers when traced.

Otherwise this looks good, QC 1/2.
