Here is our complete guide to Gengar, a spooky melee Speedster in Pokémon Unite. From best items to the right move choices, our build guide should help you dominate on the field of battle.

Pokémon Unite: Gengar Build Guide

The not-so-friendly ghost Pokémon Gengar can be had in the Pokémon Unite store for 10,000 Aeos Coins or 575 Aeos Gems.

Our guide helps you understand Gengar's moveset and choose the best abilities as you level up, as well as suggest the best Held Items and Battle Items to equip.

You'll start the battle as Gastly, evolving into Haunter at Level 5, then Gengar at Level 9.

Gengar: Item Choices

These are the items we recommend equipping on Alolan Ninetales before you head into battle.

Be mindful that you can equip up to three Held Items and one Battle Item. All stats are based on items being Level 1, without having been upgraded.

Held Items

Energy Amplifier

Aeos Energy Gather Rate +0.4%
Move Cooldown -0.3%

After the Pokémon uses its Unite Move, the damage the Pokémon deals is increased by 7% for a short time.

Wise Glasses

Sp. Atk +10

Increases Sp. Atk by 3%.

Sp. Atk Specs

Sp. Atk +0.8

When the Pokémon scores a goal, its Sp. Atk increases by 8.

Battle Item

X Attack

Cooldown: 40 seconds

Raises your Pokémon's Attack and Sp. Atk for a short timeIncreases ATK and Special ATK for a short time.

Speed and burst damage are the order of business for Gengar. As such, you want to ramp up its Sp. Atk. as much as possible, and the Wise Glasses and Sp. Atk Specs do just that. Then, following up with your Unite move, the Energy Amplifier will help you keep the damage going. Pop your X Attack just before going all in!

Gengar Gameplay

Gengar: Starting Attack

Will-O-Wisp

Cooldown: 5 seconds

Shoots multiple sinister flames, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon and leaving them burned when it hits.

A handy move that does damage and leaves them burned, Will-O-Wisp will help with early trades and farming.

Gengar: Best Moves

This build is all about what ghosts do best - surprising people. In this case, Hex will allow you to catch your opponents unawares, with both it and Sludge Bomb dealing damage and poisoning enemies. Gengar's passive, Levitate, just adds increased mobility for those ganks.

Sludge Bomb

Cooldown: 8 seconds

Hurls unsanitary sludge to the designated area, leaving opposing Pokémon poisoned when it hits.

Upgrade at Level 11: Increases the poison effect's duration.

Hex

Cooldown: 7.5 seconds

Has the user disappear and then reappear at the designated location, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect. If this hits an opposing Pokémon that is poisoned, it deals increased damage and its cooldown is reduced

Upgrade at Level 13: Increases damage dealt by this move.

Gengar: Passive Ability

Levitate

When the Pokémon is not in combat, its movement speed is increased.
