The best items for Gengar in Pokémon UNITE is a hot topic at the moment as players are looking to learn how to be effective with the Shadow Pokémon in the franchise's first strategic team battle game.

Using the best Battle and Held Items for specific Pokémon enhance players' teams by restoring health, inflicting higher damage with special attacks and increasing experience points. Here's everything you need to know about the best items for Gengar in Pokémon UNITE.

Best Items for Gengar in Pokémon UNITE

The game will gradually unlock more items for players to bring into battle to aid their chosen Pokémon. Similar to our best build for Lucario, the best Battle Item trainers should prioritize when using Gengar is the Eject Button.

The Eject Button helps the master of surprise attacks escape battles not going its way, as well as lets it pounce on enemies fleeing.

Otherwise, feel free to use the Potion items if you find Gengar often dying right as you are about to complete your Sludge Bomb and Hex combo.

Pokemon UNITE allows players to assign a set of three different Held Items to each Pokémon. The best Held Item composition for Gengar is:

  • Wise Glasses
  • Shell Bell
  • Sp. Atk. Specs

This setup is all about fully optimizing Gengar's signature Sludge Bomb and Hex combo.

Wise Glasses, Shell Bell and the Sp. Atk. Specs all increase its Sp. Atk as well as heals a substantial amount of HP when spamming Special Attacks, which is exactly what players want to do with Gengar in Pokemon UNITE.
