    Gengar (Singles) (QC PLEASE CHECK THE SETS)

    Alright before I get writing on this, I think we need to sort this thing's sets out. Mega Gengar lost some versatility this gen, but it's still a pretty unpredictable mofo who can suffer from slashing problems if we don't split stuff up correctly! Here's what I'm thinking atm. [OVERVIEW] WIP...
