Please specify how Pressure/Telepathy is more useful than the other in each battle format (singles, doubles, etc.).

What format/rules are you playing with?
Telepathy is completely useless in 1v1 formats.  It has some limited use in 2v2 and 3v3 formats.  So if you're doing Single Battles, Pressure is strictly better.
If that's the case, can you please make that the answer? Also, why is this question flagged? It's not breaking any rules.
I think this question was asked when comparing Palkia’s abilities.

Pressure because Telepathy is only useful with moves that damage everyone else on the field, like Earthquake. In other words, Telepathy is only useful in a double or triple battle.
