Hello, I was wondering, should I go for a gengar or mega sableye? My sableye has prankster and is bold nature + has perf IVs. My gengar has levitate and is bashful nature + does not have perfect IVs... What would be the best?

It would be helpful to tell us your full team.

Competitive wise, they're both almost the same. But, with these Natures, you should go Sableye. This nature is not good for your Gengar to use it to it's full potential. (You can still use it, you just won't be able to have as many KOs as another Gengar would.)

EVs: 252 Def, 128 Sp. A, 128 Sp. D
Nature: Bold
Ability: Prankster-->Magic Bounce
-Will o Wisp
-Calm Mind
-Shadow Ball/Dark Pulse

Will o Wisp is to make sure you're not damaged too much because of the Attack lowering, Calm Mind is to boost your Special stats, Shadow Ball/Dark Pulse for STAB, and Recover is to make sure you're alive.
Even though your Sableye is better, you may still be interested in breeding for another, better Gengar.

EVs: 252 Sp. A, 252 Spd, 4 HP
Nature: Timid
Ability: Levitate (if Mega-->Shadow Tag)
-Shadow Ball
-Sludge Bomb
-Giga Drain
-Dazzling Gleam/Focus Blast

Shadow Ball and Sludge Bomb is STAB, Giga Drain is coverage just in case, and Dazzling Gleam/Focus Blast (Focus Miss!) is coverage for Dark, Reliability vs. Power. No matter what item, the set is the same.

Hope I helped!
