My question is “Is Haunter good, or do you need a Gengar?” I wanted to know if a Haunter would be okay to have, (since I cant trade) or is it a waste of a team slot?

You can actually catch a Gengar as a Wanderer at the Giant's Cap, or from Max Raids in Giant's Mirror, South Lake Miloch, and Stony Wilderness. Try to use a Gengar if you can find one, as Haunter is inferior in pretty much every way. It obviously works in-game, as most things do, but why settle for less when you can have more?

Haunter / Gengar @ Spell Tag
Ability: Levitate / Cursed Body
- Shadow Ball
- Sludge Wave
- Dazzling Gleam
- Hypnosis / Giga Drain

Thanks! I do know where to catch a Gengar, it is quite late game though.
You're welcome! It can be, but if you get lucky with Raids it shouldn't be too much of an issue. Just use Haunter if you need to and give it a ton of EXP Candies if you find yourself having difficulties with it.

If your struggling to find Gengar in the Giants Cap just equip a Haunter with an Evolite so that way it will have some bulk and its solid special attack and speed is good enough for playthroughs, here's a move set for it

-Shadow Ball
-Dazzling Gleam
-Energy Ball
-Sludge Bomb

Hopefully, this helps :D
