What should my Haunter's moveset be?

#1g-cube_mastaPosted 4/6/2010 9:15:40 PM
It's level 18 right now.

Spite
Curse
Mean Look
Night Shade

Obviously a horrible moveset right now.

I was thinking it's final moveset would be

Hypnosis
Dark Pulse
Dream Eater
Shadow Ball

But the Haunter I caught doesn't have Hypnosis ;_;

There's probably a way to get it to learn it (not sure if there's heart scales in this game yet) but I think I want to drop what I was going for.


So I looked around a bit for Haunter movesets but can't find any really good ones. A rough one I'm thinking of now is

Confuse Ray
Psychic
Dark Pulse
Shadow Ball

Mainly cause Confuse Ray is awesome, and then I have a variety of dark/psychic/ghost moves to choose from, to capitalize on weaknesses, etc.,

Any help?

Having Dark Pulse and Shadow Ball is kinda redudant as Dark and Ghost are almost the exact same offensively, and Shadow Ball gets STAB so drop Dark Pulse and pick something else for better coverage or usefulness.

Yes i am insane. Abnormally insane though. For that reason i can keep my sanity.

i disagree. dark pulse can make opponent flinch. ur original set is good if u use a heartscale for hypnosis. nightmare is something u might want to consider as well. and i highly suggest you evolve it

#6KloflePosted 4/7/2010 12:09:43 AM

in fact, im using gangar lvl 46

hypnosis

dream eater

dark pulse

shadow ball(plan to get rid of this)

curse is decent, but why shadow ball? as said, it lowers STAB but wouldnt u rather have the enemy flinch, giving you an extra turn?

Yeah, in game, and that sounds good but I'm kind of partial to my current idea since I've got electric covered. Don't have Grass covered so I might go Giga Drain over Confuse Ray... maybe
