While Scolipede can Baton Pass Swords Dance boosts, Toxicroak can already boost its own Attack with Swords Dance and Crobat doesn't have much use for it because it's meant to break stall. Replace both moves with Spikes and Toxic Spikes.

Destiny Bond is an interesting option, but you really have to time it right. Some alternate options are Disable, Pain Split, Thunderbolt, and Hidden Power Fire. Also, Black Sludge is the preferred item to help Gengar make more Substitutes.

Entry hazards could be a pain, so Tentacruel can provide Rapid Spin support:
-Hydro Pump
-Ice Beam
-Giga Drain/Toxic Spikes
-Rapid Spin
