add in tmon's trick set, it's good
then you'll get my stamp
Just saying, it's actually not that easy to get Gengar to Disable ExtremeSpeed. Once Arceus breaks the Sub with Shadow Claw, the best move on Gengar is actually to Sub again. Basically, you follow this flow-chart:
1) Gengar uses Sub
2) Arceus uses Shadow Claw, Sub broken -> Use Disable to Disable Shadow Claw
3) Gengar uses Sub -> Arceus uses Shadow Claw -> Go back to stage 2
Arceus uses ExtremeSpeed -> Spam Focus Blast
You generally have 4-5 Substitutes you can actually make against a slow Arceus. That's 4-5 chances you'll get the mind-game of Disable vs Substitute correct. Those aren't bad odds, IMO.
Whatevs sig. QC member for OU and Ubers, VM me for a look at your analysis. Just make sure it's good.
Also, if you want me to rate your team (OU/DW OU/Ubers), give me a VM. If I don't rate it, it's either 1) it's so shit it's too much trouble, 2) I'm busy, or 3) the team is fantastic and I have nothing I can suggest to you. You should be able to recognise which one.
