Gallade is a Psychic and Fighting type T3 raid boss during the Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl event. Gallade does have a future Mega evolution, so it is well worth trying to get a good IV one ready for when it is eventually released.
It’s a Psychic and Fighting type, so it is weak to , Fairy and Ghost types. It is resistant to Fighting and Rock. The combination of Psychic and Fighting type is fairly unusual, with only Mega Mewtwo X and the Meditite family sharing this particular typing.
It will be possible to solo Gallade if you are a high level trainer with strong counters, but if not, we recommend 2-3 trainers for those who may be lower levels or not have optimal counters.
Shadows Pokémon won’t be included in this list because they are incredibly expensive to power up. However, if you have any of the listed Pokémon as shadow forms, they’re of course better. We will include Mega Pokémon as they will help you defeat this raid boss solo in a quicker time.

Gallade has a future Mega Pokémon, that is pretty cool looking! Evolving to Gallade means you need a male Ralts/Kirlia, and a Sinnoh Stone, so it may be worthwhile raiding Gallade to guarantee you get a Gallade because of the gendered evolution, particularly if you are a fan of Mega Gallade. We’ve speculated previously that Mega Gallade will be a top tier Fighting type thanks to its ability to resist Psychic types!
