I've been playing this tier for quite a while and this set ends up on 70% of my teams because it covers...
The thing is this seems bad on paper but let's analyze everything gengar must go through to trap those defensive mons and kill them. First off, shedinja, aegislash and giratina are all immune to shadow tag, everything with magic bounce is basicaly immune to all his shenanigans and anything with...
Just dropping in my current opinion on gengarite trapping.
I want to start by saying I am under the impression the best way to win consistently in this tier is by using stall and tend to notice this when playing good players, which if true, makes trapping gengar particularily prone to feel like...
Pokemon Showdown name: Sweep Jesus
Preferred OMs: Balanced Hackmons
Foreseen inactivity: I'll probably be travelling for half the tourney, but I'm confident I can get battles done and have mastered the art of teambuilding BH teams I can giveout if I really can't play a game.

I keep this mon in basicaly every team I make because it's just so effective. When it comes to denting holes in an enemy...
Dang, don't want to be a whiny bitch, but that wasn't even in the OP, you had to continue reading 2 posts later. I don't play that regularly anymore, I'm just an old player (in smogon standards) that used to play a lot and still has the twist. Back in my days you could ladder with what the hell...
I don't know if there's a different place to post bugs about the damage calculator (the pokemon showdown one obviously), but spectral thief is listed as a water move instead of ghost. Multi attack doesn't change type with the memory too but I suppose you're aware of that one and it's just not...
Wow I actually used basicaly the same dialga set with the exception of rapid spin without ever encoutering your team. Just wanted to point out it's one of the best sp.d walls there is since ground and fighting special moves are nearly irrelevant and dialga resists the super powerful water bubble...
Small detail but you're probably gonna want to run floral healing or shore up over roost (on just about any mon) because they heal more under grassy terrain and sandstorm respectively with no downside. Even if you don't set up those conditions with your team, there's a minor chance your opponent...

EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe
- Close Combat
- Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike/Icicle Crash
Sash deoxys and m2y are pretty common leads or just often need to be revenge killed. This guy outspeeds them but...
Secret sword is really lackluster and misses on important kills such as teetar. Plus there's not much point being chansey proof to yourself since chansey will also have innards out meaning killing it will kill you too. I'd rather just send in a dark that can kill with residual damage.
