Alrighty! Time to compare some moves!(cheesy, I know)

Psycho Cut vs Zen Headbutt

Psycho Cut has a high crit chance and a base power of 70, which is probably why it has a high crit chance. It also has a 100% Accuracy

Zen Headbutt has a 20% flinch chance(which can be useful), a base power of 80, which is slightly higher than PC. However, it's base accuracy is 90%, which means it could miss when you need it most, like Thundy said

So, my decision is...

Zen Headbutt!

You'll need the power to take out really bulky Pokemon like Conk and Azumarill.
So here's the final set:


Gallade @Galladite
Trait: Steadfast ---> Inner Focus
Jolly Nature
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 Hp
-Zen Headbutt
-Drain Punch
-Swords Dance
-Knock Off/Ice Punch(those flying types could destroy Gallade)

Let's compare the two moves:

Zen Headbutt:
- Has a base power of 80
- Has a 20% chance to make the opponent flinch
- Has 90% accuracy

Psycho Cut:
- Has a base power of 70
- Has a higher Critical-Hit Ratio than most moves
- Has 100% Accuracy

So, you could go for raw power and a flinch chance with Zen Headbutt, or you could have slightly less power, but with a high Critical-Hit Ratio and have 100% Accuracy on Psycho Cut.

So, I say you go for Psycho Cut on your Mega-Gallade.

Hope I helped!

In my personal opinion, I would go with Psycho Cut. It has better accuarcy, and has a high chance for critical hits. Zen Headbutt, on the other hand, will mostly likely miss when you need it most. In this case, accuracy>power.
