After thinking about it for a bit, i actually think Haunter will probably be significantly better in x/y RU, and i'm actually pretty surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet/put in the OP, how did we forget? While it didn't get any stat buffs or important moves like say Crawdaunt did, the new type chart gives Haunter some great advantages this generation imo. For one thing, the Steel-type lost its resistance to Haunter's Ghost-type STAB, which is obviously really nice for any offensive threat that relies on their Ghost-type STAB like Haunter does. Now Haunter can simply just spam Shadow Ball and do significant damage to the opponent the majority of the time, with only Normal and Dark-type Pokemon really standing in its way, and considering Haunter has a really high base Special Attack stat for an NFE, this is pretty potent. Aside from this, the new Fairy-type makes Haunter's STAB Sludge Bomb that much more useful outside of STAB, as it hits these Fairy-types super effectively and gives Haunter an easy way to simply blow past them if it ever comes across them, it means Haunter has an extra resist to Fairy-type moves too, which might help it switch in a *little* bit more easily (although Haunter is still ridiculously frail lol). Between Shadow Ball and Sludge Bomb, i believe Haunter's coverage is pretty much completely unresisted, with only Skuntank and Drapion i think standing in its way (speaking of Skuntank, it gets defog and also benefits from the steel nerf!), which makes it that much easier for Haunter to pose an offensive threat. All in all, between Destiny Bond+3 Attacks, Subdisable, Subsplit, etc, i think Haunter will be a bit more relevant when x/y RU comes around. What do all of you think? Will it be a threat worth watching out for?
