i prefer naganadel better bt i like this set more

Naganadel @ Focus Sash
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Draco Meteor
- Sludge Wave
- Fire Blast
- Nasty Plot
Personally, I would say that Naganadel is more capable of sweeping due to its ability to set up and boost itself over time with beast boost. Arceus-Ghost is bulkier, but less of a sweeper imo.
Arceus Ghost outclasses. The only reason to not use Arceus Ghost is to use another Arceus form instead.
I think I like Naganadel, although, a Draco Meteor could be nice after 2 Beast Boosts and someone who you think could wall you.
isnt arceus ghost physical betteer than arceus ghost special?
Isn't this more RMT?
No, RMT is for entire teams. I am simply asking which is preferable.
They're used to check different things, and which one you need more depends on the rest of your team and what those team members can check.

They're used to check different things, and which one you need more depends on the rest of your team and what those team members can check. For an oversimplified example, ghost Arceus is better if the rest of your team is extremely weak to Mewtwo, while Naganadel is better if Toxapex can counter the rest of your team. Of course, when using either of them, you must make sure they're really checking the stuff they need to check and not paying with a credit card.
