Default Reccommended Nature for Gallade?

*isn't sure if this is in right forum*

I need to go catch a Male Ralts with a favorable Nature/Characteristic for eventually become a Physical Sweeper Gallade. What moves, Natures/Characteristics, and EV's would you reccommend?

The moveset I PLAN on him having is:

Drain Punch
Psycho Cutter
Leaf Blade OR Slash
Night Slash

Are these good?

Most of the time, a Physical sweeper is attatched with an Adamant Nature.

Thanks. ^_^

And should I go with Leaf Blade or Slash?

I think I should go with Leaf Blade, because it's more powerful and is a grass type...

Drain Punch deals no damage, use Close Combat in its place.

Leaf Blade > Slash but neither of them are that great for Gallade, simply because Gallade hits waters harder with Close Combat most of the time (the exception to the rule is Swampert). I'd throw Stone Edge in that slot for picking off incoming fliers.

And Adamant.

Ignoring the circumstances in which this point was raised, it cannot be denied that I do in fact have supernatural powers and am jesus (lower case "J" please I'm not an egotist but I don't need you silly little people mispelling my name).

You can get Stone Edge at the Battle Tower, as well as Earthquake. Nifty, ain't it?

Crud. >.<

That means I'll have to wait a while, since I'm waiting for the ND tip-guide to come out before I even TOUCH the Battle Island...

Sooo, I've figured out this: I should use Gallade as a Physical Sweeper...

Nature: Adamant/*???*
DV's: ATK (252), ???, ???
Night Slash (MT)
Psycho Cutter (LU)
Close Combat (LU)
Stealth Rock (TM)

Okay, so what Characteristics/other DV's should she--*ahem*--HE have?

And so the technique is, that after I finish off the opponent with a Close Combat, I should switch out when he send sout his next Poke, because of the lowered DEF and SPDEF from the move's usage?
