Part 160: POKEDEX #094: Gengar

HP:60 Atk:65 Def:60 Spd:110 Spc:130 Total:425

The final ghost is a very good ghost. While Ghost/Poison is a terrible type combination that does nothing but hinder Gengar, its high Speed and Special and wide movepool of all the good moves lets it do some good damage, despite no STAB. But it is pretty frail, so it doesn't do well against physical attacks, but having an immunity to half the moves of the game is actually pretty good, so it has its uses. It jut has a really bad type combination that stops it from being absolutely amazing.
