With Gastly now being featured during a Spotlight Hour in October, we can expect to see lots of players using their evolution line in Pokémon Go. So the question is, how do we put ours on the list of the best ones? The answer is simple: by picking the right moves! In this guide, we list the best attacks to give to your Gastly, Haunter, and Gengar to make sure you win most of your battles.

Since this entire evolution line uses are Poison and Ghost types, you want to focus on these types of attacks. For the most part, these Pokémon will all use the same types of attacks. However, the list of best attacks can change as Pokémon evolve or in different weather conditions.
