The only reason why anyone ever uses Tentacruel is entry hazard support. If you want to use Tentacruel without toxic spikes, then Genger does the exact same thing but better.
If you need a Water-type wallbreaker, you might as well use Primarina or Crawdaunt.

A choice specs Gengar does almost the exact same thing but better, so there's no good reason to use Tentacruel when you can use Gengar.
