Gallade has an extra-ordinary attack stat and its speed stat is relatively impressive... so I suggest going all-out attack on the opponent with it... my preferable move-set would be :
1. Night slash (the gost type is done for)
2. Psycho cut
3. Leaf blade
4. Ice punch
if with this move set... gallade is given a "quick claw" or "Scope leance" to hold.. well that would be a nightmare for the opponent !!!
This set of attack would also allow it be an effective attacking option against Dragon, water, ground, rock etc types.

Ability: Justified (dream world)
Item: Big root
Psycho Cut (STAB, high critical ratio)
Night Slash (Coverage, high critical ratio)
Drain Punch (STAB, gains extra hp with big root)
Will-O-Wisp (Gallade has low defence stat, it halves Pokemons attack)

Gallade @ NeverMeltIce/Magnet

Trait: Justified

Nature: Adamant (-Sp. Atk., +Atk.)

-Swords Dance (The best attack booster Gallade has)

-Thunder/Ice Punch (Depends on the type combination you want on the Flying type)

-Night Slash (I'd go with Night Slash instead for Shadow Sneak because of the power)

-Drain Punch/Psycho Cut (Drain Punch to drain the health, or Psycho Cut for Critical Hit)

*Note: If you want a priority move that KO's Ghost types, go with Shadow Sneak, but if you want more power, go with Night Slash.

basically gallade is a physical sweeper.
therefore try using the following moveset

gallade (M)@razor claw
trait:hasty nature
item:razor claw/life orb
moveset :
phycho cut(coverage against flying types)
leaf blade(good grass type physical trump card )
night slash(critical hit+coverage against phychic type)
close combat/drain punch/brick break(dp is a attacking hp stealer,bb is a decent fighting type move and close combat for 'ko'ing the opponent)

for the items I would prefer razor claw
since gallade has got I pretty decent speed and an awesome attack
my moveset was all about pulverizing the opponent

so have fun

Well I use this moveset on my Gallade for versatility.

Nature: Naive
Item: Kasib Berry (Cover the Ghost type weakness, especially when hit with a Shadow Claw from a Mega-Banette)

Close Combat (Obviously)
Psycho Cut (High critical hit chance)
Shadow Sneak (To cover it's speed and to hit against Ghost types, plus adds defense against Paralysis.)
Will-O-Wisp (To lower the opponent's attack power and to take out Shedinjas holding Focus Sashes)
