How about my gengar moveset?

this is my gengar

gengar
timid @leftover
6 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
shadow ball
sludge bomb
thunderbolt
substitute

I use sludge bomb since it's gengar strongest move,
and paired with thunderbolt give gengar near perfect coverage.
(which I believe only 3-4 pokemon in gen 4 resist this set
and one of them are magnezone family)
hit nearly everything shadow ball can't, for at least, normal damage.

Is this set viable, so I can avoid using well-known focus blast (or HP fire)
which is miss too many time in my opinion.

Is it considered a good gengar? or at least not too much below average.
any opinion/advice is welcome, thank

The shadow is here and everywhere, but nowhere.

Yeah altered your text.
Ummm. If you want psuedo bolt beam (I.e. near as makes no difference perfect coverage.) You can run Icy wind. Its taught by a Gen IV move tutor at battle frontier. It'll guarentee a speed reduce. But it only has 55 BP i think.

Yeah, Focus blast and HP fire are both so common purely because of Gengars bane. Steel type walls. And offensive Dark types. I'm looking at you TTar.

But yeah just consider something as a replacement for sludgebomb.
