You might as well tech in a Mew2 as a one-prize attacker against Buzzvole GX, the aforementioned Sylveon GX for utility or Sudowoodo to be slightly more annoying instead of focusing on the impossible (i.e. Improve metal matchup for Garde)
Your previous statement said to find another coverage Pokémon.
The Pokémon you have to cover is Gardevior.
You have to cover the Metal Weakness.
You need a Fire Pokémon to cover Gardevior because the majority of the Metal decks are weak to Fire.
-Mew2 doesn’t cover Metal.
Mew2 is mostly commonly seen in Zoroark decks.
Mew2 is used to cover Dark Pokémon(Zoroark).
Dark Pokémon are weak to Fighting Type.
Fighting Type is weak to Psychic Type.
-Sylveon is weak to Metal.
Sylveon isn’t used to Cover anything in a Gardevior Deck.
Sylveon is used to search out combo pieces to speed up the deck.
-Sudowood doesn’t cover Metal.
Sudowood has been seen in a few decks.
The most common is Zoroark Counter Deck.
Sudowood is used to help in the Zoroark Mirror Match.
Sudowood is acting as a Counter, not a Coverage.
It counters rival Dark Pokémon.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT A COVERAGE POKÉMON EVEN IS?
I feel like you are muttering Mew2, Sylveon, and Sudowood because you heard other great Pokémon players mention them.
However, it is clear to me that you don’t really understand why those Pokémon are being used.
They can be coverage Pokémon for specific types.
Those types are not in line with Gardevior.
You spent all this time telling me Charziard is a Bad Coverage Pokémon for Gardevior.
Than you give examples which are not even coverage Pokémon.
What do you gain by making yourself look foolish?
I told you from the very beginning that I looked at all the different Fire Pokémon in Standard.
I checked several times.
Out of all the different Fire Type Pokémon, Charizard seemed to be the most versatile.
It helps cover Gardevior.
I feel it is the best option.
I will say I did see a few other Fire Coverage options.
However, you will have to use Fire Energy or Special Energy in order to attack with them.
-Charizard EX can be used for it first Attack which is 3 Colorless.
-Charizard EX is Basic Pokémon.
-Charizard will do a solid amount of damage 120-180.
The investment in this Pokémon is extremely low.
It doesn’t take up many slots.
It doesn’t force you to run other energy types or other special energy types.
In addition, you do have the option to use the second attack if you really wanted too.
You would have to alter the deck to allow the use of Zard second attack.
However, The second attack would wipe out all Metal Pokémon in game with a damage out put of 300.
Charizard EX is giving you options.

It is said that if Gengar is hiding, it cools the area by nearly 10 degrees Fahrenheit.
