Yeah, Ghost really doesn't have many Physical Attackers

Golurk - base 124 Attack, Decent bulk, access to powerful moves like Dynamic Punch and Earthquake, as well as decent abilities in Iron First and No Guard.

Aegislash - gets Swords Dance, King's Shield etc. In Blade Form, base 150 offences, in defense form base 150 defences, allowing it to set up SD fairly easily and proceed to sweep with priority Shadow Sneak.

Gourgeist-Super - Base 100 attack, decent bulk, priority Shadow Sneak, as well as more powerful moves like Phantom Force.

Apart from those three, Dusknoir, Spiritomb, Shedinja and Banette (Mega included) are the only Ghost type Pokémon which are even remotely viable for Physical attacks,

There are hardly any, but some of the notables would be Golurk (a staple on Ghost teams thanks to SR), Aegislash, Trevenant, and even Mega Banette. Although maybe the second two aren't specifically using for the physical attacking abilities, the first two are. Here are some sets I would suggest:


Golurk @ Leftovers
Ability: Iron Fist
EVs: 248 HP / 80 Atk / 172 Def / 8 SDef
Impish Nature
-Stealth Rock
-Shadow Punch
-Ice Punch

This is a bulkier Golurk who can sponge a few weak super effective attacks in order to get those Stealth Rocks down quick. Shadow Punch and EQ are STAB and Ice Punch is for pesky Gliscor or Landorus.


Aegislash @ Life Orb
Ability: Stance Change
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Adamant Nature
-Kings Shield
-Iron Head
-Shadow Sneak
-Sacred Sword

Aegislash is just your physical tank. It uses Kings shield to completely mess up other Physical attackers. Iron Head is its strongest move and Shadow Sneak is great priority. Sacred Sword can hit opposing Steels like Ferrothorn and Heatran.

is SR, Stealth Rock?
Yeah, sorry. SR is Stealth Rock.
