Garchomp
Nature: Hasty
Trait: Sand Veil
Item: Leftovers/Sitrus Berry/ Focus Band
- Dragon Rush/Draco Meteor (Covers Dragon weakness)
- Stone Edge (Comeplete Coverage against Ice Weakness)
- Crunch (Suggestion, May lower Foe's defense, Also good if Foe has Froslass)
- Sandstorm/Earthquake/Brick Break (Sandstorm: Increases Evasion, Earthquake: High Power and Accuracy, Brick Break: Coverage against Ice since Stone edge doesn't have as high accuracy.)
My Garchomp has none of these moves, in fact, I just made it up, but since I thought of this, Im gunnna Give him these moves
Ha lol shiny Mega Garchomp is pink.
shiny garchomp is.... .WUT
I'd just give it speed and HP EVs and spam Swords Dance......
 - Dragon Claw
 - Iron Head (fairies)
 - Earthquake
 - Swords Dance
Simple and to the point.
I think shiny megas generally don't look as good to discourage genning shinies... Maybe.
Garchomp @ Garchompite
Trait: Rough Skin----->Sand Force
Adamant Nature (+Atk -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Atk/252 Spe/4 HP
-Swords Dance/Hone Claws
-Earthquake
-Dragon Rush
-Fire Fang
Garchomp - The Outrage Sweeper
You will need to breed with a Dragonite, Haxorus, Druddigion, Hydreigon, and Goodra with the move "Outrage", because they learn this move by leveling up, which is what Garchomp can't. If you play OR/AS, you can just go to the battle resort, go to the second tutor, tutor outrage to your current Garchomp. It costs 16BP.

Garchomp @ Persim Berry - To avoid confusion after using outrage 2 or 3 times in a row.
 Adamant Nature (+Atk -SpA) You will need this nature. You don't need SpA
Trait: Sand Veil/Rough Skin
EVs: 252 Atk/252 Spa/4 HP
    -Outrage - Strongest Dragon type move ever
     -Earthquake - Obvious Reasons that its the best move
     -Iron Tail/Iron Head - Iron tail and Hone Claws match up. Iron Head and Swords dance match up.
     -Hone Claws/Swords Dance

I'm sorry, but Giga Impact? Giga Impact doesn't do any super effective damage AND you waste a turn recharging. Dragon Rush hits with the same power, but without the troublesome recharge.
