The only reason to use Trevenant over super size Gourgeist honestly is for its ability to OHKO Rotom-W with Wood Hammer. If you aren't using Wood Hammer with some Attack investment, stick with Gourgeist.

Trevenant has more special bulk than Gourgeist and Harvest is pretty good in its own right, especially in a sun team (which this isn't). It's a better alternative to Gourgeist than merely killing Rotom-W harder, which both do adequately anyway. (Who cares if you can't OHKO Rotom-W when it can't touch you anyway?) But yes, bulky WoW/Leech Seed is probably better done by Gourgeist.
