I am playing Platinum casually, but I don't know which move I want to teach my Gallade for extra coverage.
Here is his move-set currently. I plan on deleting Double Team for whichever move I pick, but should I delete another move to have both night slash and leaf blade?

Gallade:
Swords Dance
Psycho Cut
Close Combat
Double Team

Here is the rest of my teams moves for reference:

Garchomp:
Earthquake
Crunch
Dragon Claw
Iron Head

Gardevoir:
Psychic
Thunderbolt
Shadow Ball
Calm Mind

Rapidash:
Flare Blitz
Megahorn
Bounce
Fire Blast

Staraptor:
Brave Bird
Close Combat
Fly
Roost

Empoleon:
Flash Cannon
Surf
Hydro Pump
Ice Beam

I'm guessing night slash would be better, because none of your Pokemon have a STAB attack strong against psychic.
Also how did you get an iron head Garchomp? Did you already defeat Cynthia?
Night slash so you have stab and you should run life orb

Assuming you haven't already defeated Cynthia, you should use night slash to make Lucian easier to defeat. Leaf blade is good against Bertha, but you already have Empoleon for that. (replace hydro pump with agility if you want to one-shot her Pokemon before they can use earthquake)
