Ghost Team (just in time for Halloween)
Here is my second attempt at an all Ghost team...

Gengar ♀ (Jessica) Ghost/Poison
Levitate // Leftovers
Timid - 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Substitute, Disable, Shadow Ball, Focus Blast

Chandelure ♂ (Vincent) Ghost/Fire
Flame Body // Choice Scarf
Modest - 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Fire Blast, Shadow Ball, HP Fighting, Energy Ball

Golurk ♂ (Marshall) Ground/Ghost
Iron Fist // Choice Band
Adamant - 208 HP / 252 Atk / 48 Spe
Earthquake, Stone Edge, Hammer Arm, Shadow Punch

Jellicent ♂ (Jim) Water/Ghost
Water Absorb // Choice Specs
Modest - 172 HP / 252 SpA / 84 Spe
Water Spout, Shadow Ball, Ice Beam, Energy Ball

Cofagrigus ♀ (Cleopatra) Ghost
Mummy // Chesto Berry
Bold - 252 HP / 120 Def / 136 SpD
Shadow Ball, HP Fighting, Rest, Haze

Spiritomb ♀ (Lester) Ghost/Dark
Pressure // Lum Berry
Sassy - 252 HP / 116 Def / 140 SpD
Dark Pulse, Pursuit, Rest, Will-o-Wisp

Any thoughts? Suggestions? I know mono-typing is tough, but Ghost is probably the most workable type thanks to the Gen V Ghosts.

Good team, but I've always found Golurk to be incredibly unreliable... Something else to consider could be a Driblim...

Drifblim ♀ (Floony <3) Ghost/Flying
Unburden // Chesto Berry
Modest - 252 Def / 108 SpA / 148 Spe
Shadow Ball, Rest, Thunderbolt/Thunder, Calm Mind

Basically just use Calm Mind till your Hp is down a lot, then use Rest to get full health and a big speed boost from Unburden, then wreak havoc. In my experience it's very reliable and easy to work with, especially as a late sweeper. Definitely something to consider. Only problem is a weakness to Stealth Rock, but you can't have everything haha.

Ha ha, I appreciate that it is named "Floony!"

I am pretty set on Golurk because I raised one through the Gen V single player.... I know he isn't the best, but I doubt he'd be brought in much depending on the tourneys I try and enter.

I was SOOOO psyched in the single player when I found out accidentally that Golurk can learn HM Fly... I was like WUT. Then we'd fly around. Shame, cause I would LOVE to teach him Fly in the Meta-Game if there was a USE for it!!

Nice team, not really much I can say about it, considering it's monotype. Looks good though. :D

All times are UTC -8. The time now is 1:13 AM.
