Who is better: Mega Garchomp or Mega Charizard X?

I need a Physical Sweeper, I have experimented with Mega Charizard before and I do know that:

Power Punch does massive damage due to Tough Claws and helps you start sweeping
Flame Charge does massive damage due to STAB and Tough claws and helps you start sweeping

Pros and Cons are strongly suggested

Take note that these Pokemon are for Competitive battles

Garchomp pros:

Amazing attack stat
Sand boosted

Garchomp is an excellent wallbreaker, but can only truly sweep under sticky web.

Mega charizard Pros:

good bulk for an offensive mon
Good dual STABs
Access to Roost
Access to Dragon Dance
Can run mixed

Cons:

SR WEAKNESS
can be stopped by bulky waters


as a sweeper unless you have sticky web I would go for charizard

Good dual STABs, fantastic bulk, and can run mixed should be noted on Garchomp.

Alright, lets start off with Garchomp

Pros
Very high Atk(at base stat of 170!)
Either Decent or Good in all of stats

Cons
Slower when Mega Evolved
Has a 4x weakness to ice type, meaning it will most likely NOT survive an ice type attack
Has a horrible abitiliy, Sand Force, which it needs to set up sandstorm to activate and wastes 1 turn

If you are planning to use Garchomp, use this example:

Garchomp
Adamant
Yache berry

Outrage-Gonna sweep with Swords Dance
Swords Dance-To set up
Earthquake-STAB
Dragon Rush-STAB, Replacement for Outrage

Ok, next is Charizard

Pros
Dragon fire type, great dual/mix up
Decent/Great base stats
Great ability

Cons
Has not that great base stats in Sp. Def and Hp, meaning it probaly wont survive a Earth Power

If youre choosing Charizard, heres an example:

Charizard X
Adamant
Choice Band/Sitrus Berry(Do not go for Choice band if you want to set up Dragon Dance!!!)

Flare Blitz- Main Move, STAB
Outrage- STAB
Dragon Dance-Sets up
Steel Wing- Beats up any opposing Rock type Pokemon

I would personally go for Charizard, as it is Faster than Garchomp and can learn Dragon Dance via Breeding and can sweep.
