I'm still new to competitive Pokemon.

What is the best IV spread, EV spread, nature, item and moveset for Gengar?

31s in everything except Attack.
Timid Nature for more Speed/Modest for more power
252 SPAtk 252 Spd 4 HP
Gengarite/Life Orb

Shadow Ball (Main Stab and unresisted by Steel now)
Sludge Bomb (Second Stab and the new type killer)
Dazzling Gleam (Dragons are abundant in meta game and takes care of Dark types)
Thunderbolt (Water types are also pretty abundant in meta game.)

Timid/Modest (Probably Timid).

IV's (max) or at the very least max SpA and Speed.

Also, it's fairly easy to get at least 4-5 perfect this gen with breeding. 6 just takes a little more time.

EVs 252 SpA/Spe

252 spa 252 spe 6.Whatever
Black Sludge

Subsitute
Disable
Shadow ball
Focus Blast


Most pokemon uses a set that did not carry more than one move to beat Gengar. Which is where Disable comes in. Sub to scout a move, Disable it, and then attack with perfect coverage
Real Metal bounces their breast. Deal with it

Wait for the Pokebank, breed Perish Song onto it via Misdreavus.

Shadow Tag + Perish Song/Protect/Substitute is probably the lamest set. Switch your Gengar out on the last turn while the enemy dies.

Perfect coverage less Bulletproof Chestnaught, which is immune to Shadow Ball, Focus Blast and Sludge Bomb.

Technically, the perfect Gengar has an IV Spread of

31/00/31/31/31/31

So that Confusion and Foul Play do less damage.
