The only really bad one is Banette, because it's slow and can't use its Attack stat well. Sableye gets Prankster from DW, so it's at least usable in a support role. Spiritomb has usable stats (but not too good, what did you expect from a Pokémon without weaknesses anyway?), and Drifblim has a great movepool. Most of the other Ghost Pokémon are in the higher tiers. You seriously can't argue Gengar, Mismagius, Dusclops with Eviolite, Dusknoir, Froslass, Giratina, Cofagrigus, Golurk, Jellicent and Chandelure, which are the other Ghost-types not mentioned before, are bad Pokémon. Not all are in OU for example, but they all have great stats and movepools.
Not mentioning Shedinja because, well, it's a joke, whichever type it was. And Rotom doesn't count because most players use its other Formes anyway.
Also, because they're immune to Normal and Fighting-type moves, there's always a use for Ghost Pokémon.
"The Master Ball is the ultimate Poké Ball. It will unfailingly catch any Pokémon in the wild. But it is not anything that I require. Unlike you Trainers, I do not make Pokémon my friends or partners. Unlike other Team Galactic members, I don't use Pokémon as tools. Instead, I make the power of Pokémon my own."
