hattrene is much better lol trick room and then use its powerful special attack to nuke opponents gardevoir gets outsped and is too fast for trick room Pokemon so it's speed is awkward while it does have a good movepool and decent stats it's not good enough being the reason for it rarely being used
thx Lyle
What do you mean by ‘competitive play-through’?
Lyle you should have converted it into an answer

Well... Let's compare their stats.

Gardevoir has very good SpA and SpD, and a decent speed of 80, rest all are around 65 (which is bad)

Hatterene has her SpA stat a little more than Gardevoir, decent Def and SpD, but lacks in HP (so high defense is waste, but better than Gardevoir's low HP and Def) and horrible Speed.

Now let's look at the movesets.

Gardevoir gets access to various attacking moves such as T-Bolt, Shadow Ball, Energy Ball, Grass knot, Focus Blast etc along with Destiny Bond.

Hatterene has less wider movepool when compared to Gardevoir. The access to Trick room makes it to attack first most of the time.

The rest all are the same.

So overall, Gardevoir is good with your moveset given (But I recommend you to replace Calm Mind with Light Screen). Hatterene can play the role of anything you wish (Sweeper with Trick Room, or Special Tank or a Wall). In comparison, Hatterene is definitely better than Gardevoir.

Go with this moveset.

Hatterene @ Life Orb
Ability: Healer
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Quiet Nature (+SpA, -Spe)

  • Trick Room
  • Psychic
  • Dazzling Gleam
  • Mystical Fire / Shadow Ball

Lol megas aren't in gen 8
Mega Gardevoir isn’t in Gen 8, so Hatterene ends up better in this case. But yes, you’re right, Mega Gardevoir is amazing.
Get a load of this. Pixilated Fairy Gem Hyper Beam Mega Gardevoir. Just think.
Also, I swear I’ve seen this answer before.
Ok I'll edit
Ah I didn't copy anywhere that you had suspected about mega gardevoir. Although I did copy the moveset of Hatterene
Did you hide the answer and reshow it?
I gave this answer to a wrong question. I thought that I was suspected to copy the same answer. Lol..

As LyleGoliath said, Hatterene is amazing in a Trick Room team, with that Special Attack of a Mega Gardevoir (not actually but that’d be awesome!), its only drawback is its just pitiful Speed, which is what makes it so amazing on Trick Room.

Hatterene @ Wise Glasses
Quiet Nature (+SpA - Spe)
-Trick Room
-Dazzling Gleam
-Shadow Ball

Trick Room for obvious reasons
Psychic for STAB
Dazzling Gleam and Shadow Ball for dual coverage

There's really no point to Magic Powder, go for Dazzling Gleam instead.
