Massive, Targetable Damage

Psyshock deals damage in 3 hits, and if you're able to land all of them, you'll be dealing massive damage to your foes. The key here is that you can move your character to adjust the position of subsequent attacks, so make sure not to miss out on this!

Psychic vs Moonblast

Psychic forms an aoe circle that damages foes at the end of its trajectory - as you can imagine, this pairs very well with Psyshock. It's of course possible to run Moonblast here instead if your team needs the stun, but for maximum AoE potential go for Psychic.

Pure Special Attack

Go for a full Sp. Atk build in terms of your items - Wise Glasses and Choice Specs work well. If you're feeling like going full glass cannon, use a Shell Bell as your last item. Otherwise, feel free to swap it out for a Buddy Barrier.

Moonblast Over Psychic

This build is essentially the same as the previous one, but it opts for Moonblast over Psychic. You'll lose a bit of damage from foes that linger in Psychic's AoE, but you will instead gain crowd control. If you're solo queueing, this might be the build to use.

Compensate For Lack Of Mobility

Once you evolve and lose Teleport, you'll find you're somewhat immobile. Moonblast is in a way here to compensate for this, allowing you to stun approaching enemies and get away. Note that we still recommending running an Eject Button alongside this regardless.

Maximize EXP

The idea of Gardevoir in the jungle may put a lot of people off, but it is one very effective way of ensuring that you get the necessary experience you need to evolve, and fast. Gardevoir's biggest flaw is how long it takes to evolve, and how weak it is early game. This will solve that partially.

Avoid Unnecessary Fights Early Game

Gardevoir is not the strongest in the early game - it's honestly better to just reliably farm experience by taking out Pokemon than to engage in unnecessary fights. Rotate down to Drednaw at 7 minutes, but don't overstay your welcome - remember, you're more useful to the team the faster you can evolve into Gardevoir!

Damage Is Key

The Wiseglasses and Choice Specs are key here in order to maximize Gardevoir's damage. You are an Attacker first and foremost, and even though you're in the Jungle, you still need to focus on maximizing dps.

Gardevoir Strategy Guide

Either Top Or Bottom Lane

Top Lane

The recommended path is the Top Lane, but you can choose head straight into battle with your allies to either top or bottom - depending on the Pokemon on your team. Ralts won't have enough endurance to safely survive close battles with a Pokemon from the opposing team at the start, so try to keep your distance in independent fights, or follow your teammates and attack together as a group.

Ralts (Lv 1~) Strategy

Pick Confusion First

Although Teleport is an excellent getaway move, we recommend getting the offensive Confusion first to contribute to faster clears.

Generally Best To Attack From A Distance

After easing into the game, you'll find that even though you can deal powerful hits even at the earlier stages, your endurance is on the lower end. It can sometimes be better to save your Teleport as a getaway tool, instead of using it offensively.

Kirlia (Lv 6~) Strategy

More Offensive Moves From Lv6 Onward

You'll get two powerful offensive moves once you reach level 6. Both work really well in inflicting area damage, but we've found Psyshock to be the stronger and easier move to use. You still won't have enough endurance to survive an onslaught at this stage, so try to limit your battles to 1 on 1 by checking the environment before attacking another Pokemon.

Adapt Your Build To Your Attack Style

Gardevoir build

At level 8 you'll get a choice between Psychic & Moonblast. Psychic will leave an AoE circle that has the potential to do more damage than Moonblast, but Moonblast will provide you with a very reliable stun. It's your choice which you prefer, but ultimately it may come down to how risk-averse you are.

If You Chose Psyshock
Lv 8: PsychicPsychicRanged
After hitting an opposing Pokemon or traveling its maximum distance, deals damage over time to opposing Pokemon in the area of effect and decreases their movement speed for a short time
If You Chose Future Sight
Lv 8: MoonblastMoonblastRanged
Has the user attack while moving back to create distance. When the move's blast hits, it deals damage to opposing Pokemon in a cone and leaves the opposing Pokemon closest to the user unable to act for a short time

Gardevoir (Lv 10~) Strategy

Psychic + Psyshock

Recommended Combo
PsychicPsyshock

This build will let you rain devastation on your enemies from relatively afar. If you're able to land all 3 hits on Psyshock, you'll likely deal lethal damage.

Moonblast + Future Sight

Recommended Combo
Future SightMoonblast

The delayed explosion on Future Sight can be tricky to land, so it's good to guarantee your foe can't move until it goes off. Moonblast is the way to guarantee this - lay down your Future Sight, then stun with Moonblast. (Future Sight also works well with Gardevoir's Unite Move as well!)

Unite Move: Fairy Singularity

Fairy Singularity is an incredibly powerful move that will draw in all enemies into one concentrated location. This becomes more powerful the more coordinated your team is - if you're playing with people on voice comms, try to time your ults together for maximum effect. Needless to say, this is extra potent when fighting for Zapdos.

Gardevoir - Timing Specific Guide

What To Do At Every Stage Of The Game

This section will guide you on which specific Wild Pokemon to target in order, as well as what to do at various stages of the game. This guide is basically based exclusively on jungle builds.

10:00~8:50

※ If the central path on your side is in the desert zone, the locations of Ludicolo (3) and Bouffalant (4) will be reversed.

Central Area
Target Level5
Tasks① Choose Teleport as your first skill.
② KO Lillipup
③ KO Ludicolo
④ KO Bouffalant
⑤ KO the 2 Corphish.
⑥ Head to the bottom path.

At the start of the match choose Teleport as your first skill since it can instantly moves you to a specified location. It can be useful as it can cross you over the barricade and into the central area quickly.

Jungle Guide - What To Do In The Center Area

8:50~7:00

Target Level7
Taksk① Clear the Combees and Vespiquens in the middle.
② Return to the central area.
③ KO the newly spawned Ludicolo
④ KO the newly spawned Boufallant.
⑤ KO the 2 newly spawned Corphish.
⑥ Head back again to the bottom path.

As of level 5, Gardevoir won't have evolved yet. Since your durability is still low at this point, we recommend you avoiding getting KO'd while supporting your allies from a distance. If your opponents get too close, use Teleport to escape.

7:00~ Until Defeating Drednaw's 1st Appearance

Target Level10
Tasks • Aim to reach level 10 by fighting at a slower pace.
• Use Moonblast to stun opponents them then hit them with Psyshock.
• When you reached level 10, use your Unite move to target a group of opponents..

Don't attack too much in the first battle against Drednaw let it drag on and aim to reach level 10. Once you've reached level 10, use your Unite move on a group of opponents and attack them all at once. Opponents whose movement is blocked by the Unite move will be bunched up and easier to hit with Psyshock.

Tasks•Use Moonblast to stun opponents them then hit them with Psyshock.
• Target a group of opponents with your Unite move.

Since Gardevoir has low durability and mobility make sure not to go alone. We recommend teaming up with your allies whenever possible to make it harder for the opponent to target you. In Zapdos battles, .
