I want to know which ghost is better for gen 8 OU. I've tried the both of them and Doublade is defensive and specially defensive while Gengar is an all out attacker.

Best answer

Doublade

Pros
Good Eviolite user
Great typing
Has priority and boosting moves
Good coverage choices

Cons
It's in UU, which is not good when you're playing OU.
No recovery moves, which makes entry hazards a threat for it

Gengar

Pros
Brilliant Special Attack and Speed
Nasty Plot boosts that Special Attack even higher
Access to things like Hypnosis and Focus Blast

Cons
Sort of frail
No reliable recovery outside of Rest
In UUBL, meaning it isn't quite OU-level

Hope I helped! I would prefer Gengar in most scenarios, but it depends on the situation, as Doublade is also quite good.

If only OU didn't ban Gigantamaxing
I mean, Gengar is still solid without Gigantamax.
