    Gengar is dangerous if given the following moves

    Shadow ball
    Thunderbolt/Disable
    Hypnosis
    Pain split

    Its levitate ability makes it immune to ground type moves...

    Gengar is high in special attack, and speed making it a special sweeper that kills the target in mostly 1st move

    Gengar's only weaknesses are Psychic, Ghost and Dark. But Hypnosis + Dream Eater makes the first two bit of useless.

    Darkrai is a great threat to Gengar because it has higher speed and sp.attack and can OHKO Gengar in the very first move itself..

    Gengar itself is one of the strongest ghost type pokemons yet (excluding legendary)

    The only pokemon I know that has base stats above (or equal) 500 which is ghost type, except Gengar is Chandelure..

    Gengar is good, but not the strongest. Some pokemon like Chandelure are better then it.

    But Gengar can be quite useful in Kanto games because it's the only ghost type in that.

    Chandelure is really dangerous if on opponent's side as an ATTACKER!


    I can't forget that Gengar kept on using " Confuse Ray " 8-10 times in leafgreen league and annoyed me a lot !

    Hah, Zubat's better at annoying!... But that's not what we're talking about.

    The best moveset I can think for a Gengar would be,

    -Psychic
    -Shadow Ball
    -Thunderbolt
    -Hypnosis

    Gengar should only be used for attacking. Though, he might have a bit problem if opponent uses Light Screen, but I think that's where Hypnosis can help.

    Scizor's Bullet Punch is a clean OHKO on Gengar.
    Gengar's defenses are so poor !
    Moreover,Gengar's hypnosis is useless on any pokemon with Vital spirit ability,example- Primeape .

    But Gengar owns Primape.. No need to say any reason.. I think Thunderbolt can be replaced by Dream Eater to make the moveset better.

    Yeah,Primeape falls to psychic...

    Gengar sure is multitalented , but Honchkrow will surely OHKO him if Thunderbolt is replaced by Dream eater , because Honchkrow's Insomnia ability makes it immune to sleep ! Razz

    Yeah, that is the reason he have Thunderbolt. It also helps it defeat Natu/Xatu.

    There is no moveset which doesn't have a drawback.. Honchkrow can still OHKO Gengar coz Thundebolt is not STAB.

    It don't have to be STAD. Pokemon can learn other moves for a reason, you know.

    Psychic is not STAB but even then Primeape is defeated !

    Gengar DOESN'T need STAB...

    His sp.attack stat is just too high to give a nice OHKO to Honchkrow with thunderbolt !! Razz

    I agree with Max, its sp.attack is pretty good that it doesn't need STAB to kill it..

    Gengar is a poison type but never really learns much of poison type move, its made a poison type so that Alakazam have a chance against him and the battle is awesome..
