I just looked at those usage stats, and I'm loling that Gastrodon is #38 (Rain is a big threat, obv.) and Gastrodon-East is #208.
So, the big reason to use SubDisable Gengar is it's typing.

^Lol. East-Gastro is way better. Energy ball>hp fire and t-bolt for the gastrodons.
New Bible Verse of the Week: Zephaniah 2:3
Seek the Lord, all you humble of the earth who have carried out His ordinances; seek righteousness, seek humility. Perhaps you will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.
Have Weavile, Focus Blast SA Dnite, and Brick Break Rhyperior on the team to help nail any uppity Darks, have Ice moves for Lat (and other dragons), electric moves (and Stallicute) for jelli..
doubt Chande will be on a rain team, though it might see action in weather block, neutral, or sun....Rock Slide and Hydropump should do nicely. Cresselia might cause problems, but I have a Trick for Trick Rooms.
All valid concerns, but I think she'll be OK (Yup! THIS spook got hatched out as Female O_O)
edit: modding Tbolt might be an option...I do have lightningrod on the team, though...

Love this guy. Though you should have Sludge Wave as an option too.
Destiny bond/Thunder/Focus blast
Immune to fake out, explosion, and all normal, fighting, and ground type moves, now with sludge wave, a poison type mix of surf and sludge bomb. He is scary as he was before in R/B/Y.
For doubles, he can now be an even better threat. Sludge wave can be useful, and it is ignored by steels, most of which will not chance the field because of earthquake. Thunder is good on a rain team, plus 30% chance paralysis. Seriously though, the foe's entire team will be threatened by side effect statuses. This guy is full of them. Exploding... Was always there, but hey, it was always good with Gengar, because he could already threaten and eliminate other ghosts.
This guy makes the return, of one of the top doubles threats.
Apparently, I can't claim Larvesta. But who cares?
It's still the cutest bug eva!
I am The Grovyle, that friend in a high place.
The craziest battle I ever had- Toxic spikes supported baton passing team, with a Splashing Wailord. And won. You have to try it!
Explosion got nerved so it sucks, even more because of gengar's attack stats.
sub disable gengar is definitely the best set in normal teams,it trolls choice users and can scout perfectly
