I love this guy. Why? He kicks ass. Any pokemon that kicks ass is good enough for me. Well, we can obviously see from this tiny chart up here that this pokemon has quite pathetic defense. Also it's attack is seriously lacking up here. That doesn't mean it is bad however. It's speed is pretty damn high, and it has one of the highest specials in the game. Not too shabby, huh?
Well I must admit, I suck at making movesets for pokemon like these. Well, here it goes:

Psychic, Seismic toss, Thunderbolt, Double team

     Double team is just about necessary. Why? It cant learn reflect and it has such low defense. So maybe pull off a double team or two while fighting a pokemon based on special that has to build a slight shield. Preferably a water pokemon, then you can thunderbolt it away. Psychic is there also to take advantage of it's high special. Seismic toss to do 100 damage, and that instead of night shade because it has 5 more power points.

Double team, Rest, Thunderbolt, Psychic

     A double resting gengar! Now this is a pretty good idea, actually, as swift dancers can't touch it with swift! Thunderbolt and psychic are for two special attacks, and they are good against mostly everything. Now a Starmie or another could probably beat this, but hey, nothing is perfect.

Confuse ray, Seismic toss, Rest, Explosion

     This is a good status changing pokemon and useful if you aren't using Double team. Bring it in against something with mostly normal type attacks (which don't affect it) Persian is a perfect example of this. Bring Gengar in, use confuse ray, then switch out for a fast pokemon that can cause paralysis. This can have devestating effects on the opponent's team. Rest is there to remove any statuses Gengar may recieve, and I don't need to tell you what explosion and seismic toss are there for.
