Gengar. He's great competitively, and even outside of the metagame, there other good qualities about him. He looks awesome, and he's the classic Ghost-type!

Starmie is cheap and overrated. Floatzel has the same Speed, but it is NU while Starmie is OU just for having Rapid Spin.

Starmie can take a hit, unlike Floatzel.

Also, Starmie can type cover itself. T-Bolt/Ice Beam/Psychic/Rapid Spin(Or surf) gives far better coverage than Floatzel can ever hope to provide.

2 of the 3 Gen 1 Pokemon I still like to use on a regular basis.

I went with Gengar for the poison typing which comes in handy sometimes.

Starmie is 3rd place behind Gengar with Alakazam being 1st. Even less gen 2 Pokes I care to use

That Starmie set up with Natural Cure makes him one of the best competitive Pokemon I've ever used. perfect counter to prankster Sableye.
