I've been haveing some multi-battles with my friends, I'm pairing up with Mega Steelix tomarrow for my last match. So I need a second or third opinion on this.

What about a sp.atk gardevoir? My Gardevoir has Moonblast, Psychic, Draining Kiss, and Hyper Voice( sometimes does alot of damage in double battles). My friend M-STEELIX is very defensive with Def:305 Sp.Def:204 With moves that hit like a train.
What kind of doubles? VGC or something else?
I'm playing a 2dsxl with Moon, so yeah thats a VGC right?
VGC is the format where all Pokemon levels become 50 and only 4 Pokemon can be used in each battle. Is that what you're playing?
yep thats VGC alright! Man i realy want Marshadow and Zeraora

Pretty good.

Try this:
A bulky M-Gardevoir sets up Trick Room.
M-Steelix uses a lot of Curses.
Gardevoir keeps recovering with Hypnosis and Dream Eater, while setting up with Calm Mind.
M-Steelix keeps recovers with Rest-Sleep Talk.
Finally sweep with Gyro Ball and Stored Power!
I used this once (but Gothitelle instead of Gardevoir).
Tell me if you too think it's a good way to keep winning!

This is good i think i can try and work with this
You do realize that they can't both be mega evolved in the same battle, right?
Well, they both can mega evolve. He clearly said it is a MULTI battle, not a double or single battle.

There really is no reason to use Steelix when Landorus is so much better and doesn't use up the mega slot. Use Landorus instead. Gardevoir can be good if you use it correctly. I think this is the best set I can find.
Gardevoir @ Gardevoirite
Ability: trace
EVs: 220 HP / 164 Def / 4 SpA / 4 SpD / 116 Spe
Modest nature
- protect
- hyper voice
- psyshock
- trick room
Trace lets Gardevoir reveal an opponent's ability before it mega evolves. Protect is there because of protect. Hyper voice and psyshock are STAB attacks, and hyper voice is especially useful for being able to hit both opponents. Trick room is used to support slower teammates, so use it with slow Pokemon like Incineroar.

Shouldn’t the ability be Trace —> Pixilate? Not “quiet”?
I was mindlessly transcribing stuff from a Smogon article. sorry.
