Title pretty much says it all
Shadow Claw is much better as it does the same amount of DPT, but with much higher EPT. That being said, I would not recommend using Gengar in PVP, its glassiness really hurts it there.
As said above don’t use gengar in pvp. It’s a potent glass cannon in raids, but in pvp it would do well only against specific oponents, while being destroyed otherwise.
Counterpoint: take a risk and use Gengar. Bring it out once shields are all burnt up, and surprise your hapless foe with an unresisted Shadow Ball.
I can fully relate to this
Use gengar, it’s a ghost that resists charm and can do SE damage to fairy types (sludge bomb) or to registeel (focus blast).
Shadow claw and shadow ball are a must
Gengar The Destroyer
gengar is just budget must on my joke acct catchless. When you have caught less than 1000 pokemon you don’t have a ton of choices!
