Choosing the best Pokémon of a specific type for your lineup requires knowing what you're looking for. One of the most important considerations is whether or not you want secondary typing, which can make your Pokémon stronger or weaker. From there, you'll consider stats, available moves, and how it works within your current team. Keep in mind that Ghost is weak to Dark and other Ghost types.
