Gengar does not do mixed sweeping or even physical - it is a waste of his amazing special attack. A good set is: Shadow Ball (STAB) Energy Ball (covers ground in case of gravity and is a great move regardless) Thunderbolt (a strong reliable move with a chance of paralysis) Psychic (another strong and reliable move) or Sludge Bomb (which has STAB but bad coverage) or Focus Blast (which covers dark but is in accurate with low pp) or Hidden Power fighting (which has high accuracy but low power) Nov 24, 2010 by edited Jul 8, 2011 by This is My Gengar Gengar @ Gengarite Timid Nature (+Speed, -Attack) EVs: 4 HP, 252 SpAttack, 252 Speed - Shadow Ball (STAB, might lower SpDefense) - Dazzling Gleam (deals with dragon types) - Sludge Wave (stronger then sludge bomb, STAB, small chance to poison) - Psychic (deals with fighting types, might lower SpDefense) Well I have My Gengar moveset us Nature: Serious Item held: Wide lens Lowers the Attack but you gain a lot more Sp Atk and your speed is still very good as well Drain punch - Weaknesses Ice,dark,rock,steel types Sucker Punch - Weaknesses Psychic,ghost types Shadow ball as stabber busy still pretty powerful because the Sp Atk - Weaknesses Ghost,psychic types Curse for moments where if you end up having to go last resort if your very low health - Weaknesses well we should all know guys that Curse is not really a type but very handy when in last resort mode as I mentioned But my type of Gengar is one hit kinda type of Gengar and so far it has been successful on its 1 hits and has been at its last resort move which everyone can’t stand because it drains your health by quiet abit not a lot though Wide lens is to help improve the Sp Atk moves Gen V Gengar (M) @ Choice Scarf Trait: Levitate EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk) • Shadow Ball • Thunderbolt • Giga Drain • Sludge Bomb Will's Gengar is better, but this is also a useful set.
Shadow Ball and Sludge Bomb provide STAB. Thunderbolt and Giga Drain provide type coverage, while Giga Drain also heals. Gengar isn't the fastest thing around anymore, but it should outspeed the foe with Choice Scarf. Sweeper EVs. May 15, 2011 by edited Jul 2, 2011 by GENGENGENGEN Gengar (M) @ Focus Sash Trait: Levitate EVs: 128 HP / 128 Sp.Atk / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) • Hypnosis • Nightmare • Hex/Dream Eater/Confuse Ray • Mean Look Put your opponent to sleep, trap them with mean look, give them nightmares, Confuse them/eat dat/attack dat, he mad yet?
Aug 12, 2011 by edited Aug 30, 2011 by A Gengars move set is an very easy question to answer! Sweeping Gengar: Shadow Ball - STAB Giga Drain - Coverage Thunderbolt - Signature Gengar move, MUST HAVE. Focus Blast - COVERAGE Sleeping Gengar: Shadow Ball - STAB Thunderbolt - Signature Gengar move, MUST HAVE. Rest - To sleep Sleep Talk - To do things when asleep Put-that-pokemon-asleep! Gengar Hypnosis - Putting things asleep Dream Eater - Eating things while they are asleep Shadow Ball - STAB Thunderbolt - Signature Gengar move, MUST HAVE.
Feb 24, 2011 by Will's Gengar Hypnosis-without this, its a waste Dream Eater-Decent coverage. It provides healing also, makign Gengar bulkier than normal.
Giga Drain-coverage. It also provides healing. Shadow Ball-STAB Ability-Levitate Evs-252 SP ATT 252 Speed 4 HP Item-Big Root Feb 24, 2011 by edited Jul 2, 2011 by Gengar holding Choice Specs. Timid Nature EVs: 4 HP / 252 Sp.Atk / 252 Speed • Shadow Ball • Focus Blast • Thunderbolt • Sludge Bomb/Trick Shadow Ball, Taking care of opposing Ghost and Psychic type Pokemon, Being STAB.
Focus Blast, If you didn't know, A Ghost move along with fighting provide at least neutral coverage on every Pokemon. Covers Steel, Rock, Dark, Ice and and Normal. The drawback is the shaky accuracy, Nevertheless, Better than Hidden Power Fighting. Thunderbolt hitting super effective on Water types, Flying types. Sludge Bomb is strong STAB. If you can manage to get Toxic Spikes support, Venoshock is even stronger. Trick can ruin your opponent, A plus if Gengar gets something good.
Jul 24, 2011 by edited Sep 20, 2013 by Gengar (M) @ Wise Glasses Role: Sweeper Trait: Levitate EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) • Hidden Power [Bug] • Giga Drain • Shadow Ball • Thunderbolt Okay, this is a basic Special Sweeper If I've Ever seen one. HP Bug - Takes down Dark Types, Fighting is also reasonable. Giga Drain - Gets Hp Back, and Takes out Rock Ground and Water, all basic Feared types to die agaisn't, Shadow Ball is for STAB and With STAB it takes down 2 of his weaknesses Thunderbolt - For coverage Jul 17, 2011 by Haunter (M) @ Eviolite Role: Bulky Evoilite Sweeper Trait: Levitate EVs: 200 Def / 56 SAtk / 200 SDef / 52 Spd Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk) • Hypnosis • Dream Eater • Hex • Sludge Wave ( EDIT: Just read Will's point about bomb ) My Favorite Ghost type.
Hypnosis puts them to sleep, leaving you with a powered up Hex or a Dream Eater recovery. Sludge Wave is STAB. Nature and EVs make him slightly bulky. This guy is a beast in the NU Meta game. Sep 21, 2011 by edited Mar 14, 2012 by Gengar (M) @ Life orb / Black Sludge / Wide Lens Role: Rain Sweeper Trait: Levitate EVs: 64 HP / 128 SAtk / 64 SDef / 252 Spd or 252 Sp Atk / 252 Spd / 4 Hp Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) or Modest Nature (+SAtk, - Atk ) • Thunder • Hex • Hidden Power [Water] or Giga drain ( Black Sludge ) • Focus Blast ( If you sub Giga Drain in, consider HP fighting!
) Well, here's a naturally beasty ghost, joining the rain squad. While he has to compete with Jellicent, who has boosted STAB ( Much needed ) he gets Thunder instead of Thunderbolt and a new HP option, that packs a punch. Hex is my choice of STAB, just because I love the move and it's general idea ( Thunder has a 30% chance to paralyze, so I can always take chances ) but Shadow Ball is a completely fair replacement if you don't like taking those kinds of chances.
HP Water is coverage, while you can sub this for something like Giga drain to break up Swamperts, Quagsires, and the devistating Gastrodon, murderer of all rain.
So that's always an option, it makes him a definite anti-water if you take onto that. You can also consider Black Sludge as an item if you pair him up with Giga Drain.
Focus Blast is your last move slot, Fighting + Ghost coverage is known for being pretty beastly, and that high powered coverage just gets me. I've experimented with Wide Lens with Thunder and Focus Blast, considering that some people can stop my weather, and that screws Gengar all up accuracy wise, but I preffer Life orb.
Wide Lens still can work, if you aren't good @ weather wars :D While if you sub in Giga Drain for HP Water, HP Fighting can be fufilling. Sep 21, 2011 by edited Nov 27, 2011 by Wow I can't believe no-one has done a set that involves the move trick. Trickster Item: Choice Specs Ability: Levitate Nature: Timid EVs: 252 Speed, 58 hp, 200 S.attack Trick Will-o-wisp/Hypnosis Shadow-ball HP(Fighting) Trick is an insanely annoying move in this case even if you dont get to use Trick it benefit Gengar, but in this case Trick should only be used on Physical Pokemon obviously.
Will-o-wisp can annoy Physical Pokemon even more by cutting their attack, while Hypnosis puts them to sleep and allows you to KO them easily. Shadow-ball is the STAB move. HP(Fighting) deals with Steel, Normal, and Dark types that would get in the way otherwise. Sep 22, 2011 by edited Jun 7, 2016 by Sub Petaya Gengar Sub Petaya Gengar is a new set I have been trying out, and it makes a great sweeper against slower teams, and even some faster ones.
The idea is that Gengar already has great speed, so Substitute protects him from being revenge killed by things like Starmie and Priority moves, while also lowering his HP down to activate the Petaya Berry, raising his SAtk and making him extremely deadly.
@ Petaya Berry Trait: Levitate EVs: 12 HP / 244 Satk / 252 Spd Timid Nature - Shadow Ball - Focus Blast - Hidden Power [Ice]/Thunderbolt/Giga Drain/Pain Split - Substitute* Pretty straight forward, for the 3rd slot, Thunderbolt and Giga Drain would be for coverage, Giga Drain would be nice for getting you HP back but Thunderbolt hits a little harder, while Pain Split would be for the purpose of regaining HP and doubling as a Sub-Split Gengar.
Feb 26, 2013 by edited Jun 7, 2016 by Zatoichi Gengar Nature: levitate Item: Wide Lens • Shadow ball • Thunder • Focus Blast • Hypnosis Pretty generic set. The wide lens boosts up the accuracy of thunder, focus blast, and hypnosis, making him a powerful, but still slightly risky sweeper.
Then again, every sweeper is kind of risky. Sep 18, 2011 by Double/Triple battle Gengar (M) @ Life Orb Trait: Levitate EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Icy Wind - Shadow Ball - Thunderbolt - Focus Blast Gengar is one of the most popular double/triple battle Pokemon due to it being a Ghost type with Levitate. It has taken a hit from the last generation with the weakening of Explosion though.
Icy Wind hits multiple foes and slows them down. Shadow ball is STAB. Thunderbolt and Focus Blast are coverage. Jan 18, 2012 by Gengar - Black Sludge EVs: 252 spatk, 252 spd, 4 HP Nature: Timid Ability: Levitate Moves: Shadow Ball Focus Blast Taunt Destiny Bond Shadow Ball is STAB, and Focus Blast is good coverage.
Taunt stops foe's from setting up, and it stops most walls/stallers/clerics in their tracks. When you are certain you will be KO'd on the next move, and you can't KO the enemy first, you go down fighting with Destiny Bond. NOTE: This set is more of a suicide assassin, as you will likely be KO'd after taunting, which gives you a great oppurtunity to use Destiny Bond.
Aug 28, 2012 by edited Jun 7, 2016 by Two Gengars. #1 Gengar @ Choice Specs Role : Special Sweeper Trait : Levitate EVs : 252 SpAtk, 252 Spd, 4 SpDef Modest Nature (+Atk,-SpAtk) Shadow Ball (STAB) Thunderbolt (Coverage) Focus Blast (Strong move, Coverage) Giga Drain (Restore HP) #2 Gengar @ Focus Sash Role : Annoyer Trait : Levitate EVs : 252 SpDef, 252 Def 4 SpAtk Bold Nature (+Def,-Atk) Hypnosis (Set up moves) Mean Look (No Escape) Perish Song (Ha you cant switch out) Shadow Ball (for Taunt) Jan 19, 2013 by My Gengar is a put-that-Pokemon-to-sleep kind of Gengar, so I hope this helps for any of you who are looking for that: Trained in: 255 speed and 255 special attack.
Ability: Levitate. 1. Hypnosis; A status move. Puts the Pokemon to sleep. 2. Nightmare; A special attack move. Inflicts a little damage every turn. 3. Dream Eater; A special attack move. Does damage, works well with Nightmare.
4. Shadow Ball; A special attack move. Why wouldn't Gengar have Shadow Ball, anyways? I didn't choose an item for Gengar, mostly because I don't know what most items do. But I hope this helped out people! (Please keep in mind this is my first post.) May 25, 2015 by
