See... There is absolutely no role or strategy for Gardevoir (or Mega Gardevoir) to fill in any capacity, any situation, and on any team that can't be better performed by a slew of more qualified Pokemon (or Mega Pokemon). Seriously there isn't. It's not an opinion, it's a mathematical and strategic fact! Not as an offensive type, not as a gimmick, not for defense, not for support, nothing. EVERYTHING she could do could be done by a better Pokemon more effectively and safely. Eternally NU tier. But she's still a waifu. And Shiny Mega Gardevoir is just fucking overkill on awesome looking cool ass monster girl time. And it makes me mad because shiny Pokemon are like digital fedoras. 

I love/hate Gardevoir because she's everything I want in a character design and nothing you'd want in serious gameplay practice.  UGH! FUCK. ARGHHHHHHHHHHH but remember, you should ultimately use the Pokemon that you WANT to use!! You don't have to be a Smogon shit like me. You can play for cutes. That's awesome if that's what you want to do! 

Fucking... this Pokemon tho... Fuck! So cool.

Also there's a regular Mega Gardevoir over at… if you prefer the wedding gown over the funeral gown.

24 Hour Later Edit: I laugh at everyone here who thinks they have a legitimately tournament capable Gardevoir. Pokemon isn't fucking YuGiOh you can't believe in the heart of your Gardevoir and it can suddenly rise from the very bottom of NU tier and take out Exodia. No. And Mega Gardevoir no. No one's wasting their one Mega slot on her.

here is how you use mega Gardevoir,  you get a Scolipede with speed boots, use it twice to get a plus 2 to speed  then Baton Pass into Gardevoir with the attack hyper voice, then mega evelove it, with a plus 2 in speed and an attack that will kill even pokemon who resist the attack, you just set up a sweeper that can only be killed by poison and steel, you will game anyone who you play.

Bottom NU is overly exaggerated dude. STAB Hyper Voice from 165 spA is nothing to laugh at. Unless you're one of those guys that can only play with the very top 10 OU. If some people have laddered 1st on Ubers with a fuckin' Stunfisk, I'm pretty sure you can make M-Gardevoir work on a team, besides, Megas aren't always necessary, so "wasting" your slot on her isn't that bad.
Otherwise just slap a Scarf to regular Voir with Healing Wish/Destiny Bond, Moonblast and coverage and you're done. She's no Jirachi but she still can rk a lot of things, besides Healing W/Destiny are amazing late game.
