Your Alakazam is better. He has Recover. I would get rid of Gardevoir...

Tough choice but I'll say Gardevoir because I tend not to like Alakazam with recover because it has lower sp.def.

Alakazam can't stand up to a Shadow Ball, and most likely an Earthquake, so recover won't help a dead pokemon right? go with gardy with this set

Alakazam has a higher base SAtk. as well as the Spd. rating to sweep. Gardevoir has the higher SDef. rating, but if a Bug-type confronts it while its CMing up, it's gone. I'd suggest Alakazam because Speed is that much more important sometimes. It should look like this:

Alakazam @ Leftovers
Trait: Synchronize
Nature: Modest (+SAtk., -Atk.)
EVs: 240 Spd., 200 SAtk., 68 HP
Calm Mind
Psychic
Fire Punch
Thunderpunch/Ice Punch/Recover

It's your decision.
