DPPt/HGSS The quest for the perfect GENGAR

Discussion in 'The Doctor's Clinic' started by chantymalo, Jun 9, 2007.

  1. Im training a new Gengar that Im planing to use in competitive mode. I want to make it a real good sweeper, but I still have trouble deciding what would be the best moveset for it. I have some options and would like to hear opinions on which moves should be better:

    Gengar (Timid)

    Moves I have in mind

    Shadowball att 80 acc100(STAB)
    Thunderbolt att95 acc100
    Psychc att90 acc100
    Hidden Power(ICE) att 70 acc100
    Giga drain att60 acc100 (half damage goes to healt)
    Sludge Bomb(STAB) acc90 acc 100 30% of poisoning
    Dark Pulse att80 acc100
    Hyper Beam att150 acc90 leaves user immobile next turn
    Hidden Power(FIGHT) att 70 acc100
  2. I'd go

    Gengar (Timid)

    Dark Pulse (for psychics)
    Shadow Ball (STAB)
    Sludge Bomb (STAB, poison)
  3. I'd prefer this moveset:-

    In Fr/Lg

    Gengar@ Leftovers

    Thunder Bolt
    Brick Break/Protect
    Shadow Ball

    In R/S/E

    Gengar@Focus Band
    Brick Break
    Shadow Ball

    In D/P

    Gengar@spooky Plate
    Dark Pulse
    Shadow Claw
    Poison Jab
  4. I would go with

    Gengar: Spooky plate/Big root (If your going to use Giga drain)

    Shadowball (Stab, and for psychics)
    HP Fighting (good for Darks)
    Giga drain/Thunderbolt

    Sludge bomb wont really help with too many weaknesses anyways, so, yeah... this is what I thought of.
  5. My gengar knows Phycic, shadow ball, shadow punch, and nightshade.
    works well for me. :p

    That's a.... kind of not good moveset. You have THREE Ghost-type moves there. Not. Good.

    -Shadow Ball
    -Sludge Bomb
    -Psychic/Dark Pulse
    -Confuse Ray

    Gengar has really high Special Attack and really low Attack, so physical moves like Shadow Punch just suck on Gengar.

    Shadow Ball and Sludge Bomb are for STAB.

    Your choice between Psychic and Dark Pulse, and Confuse Ray is able to mess up a lot of things, it'll come in handy.
  7. I'm dissapointed to see no Hypno-Dream Eater-Combo here. Like Sem said, Shadow Punch would make the weird guy on the other end of the Wi-Fi connection laugh.

    I would use Confuse Ray as well, if you think you need it of course.

    It's annoying.

    And thats funny, lol.

    Substitute is nice if he also knows Toxic. You fill in the pieces.
