In my opinion, you should Evolve it to gengar and then give it

Brick break

Shadow ball to counter psychic and ghost types
Psychic to counter fighting and poison types
Brick break to counter dark,rock,steel and normal types
Thunderbolt - addtional attakc. Quite usefull for normal + flying types.

Depends on who you are. My Gengar's attacks are:
Shadow Ball
Sludge Bomb

And a lot of people liked it when you were allowed to post your team on the Q/A pages.

Shadow ball and sludge bomb are useless because they are physical attacks in gen III. I would at least use destiny bond and maybe giga drain. Confuse ray is useful as well. And if you want to breed you can teach him haze and will-o-wisp as well.

Well, in my opinion, the moves that I use would be Hypnosis, DreamEater, ShadowBall/ShadowPunch, and 1 more of your choice.
Use DreamEater instead of Psychic because Psychic has only 90 power, whereas DreamEater has 100 power. DreamEater can also absorb half the damage it inflicted on a sleeping Pokemon whereas Psychic may lower the foe's SP. Attack.
For DreamEater to work, your foe needs to be asleep. Use Hypnosis to make it asleep.
You can choose between ShadowBall and ShadowPunch. ShadowBall's 80 power, ShadowPunch's 60 power but has infinite accuracy.
For the last move, I have no recommendations but if you wish, you could have either Psychic/ShadowBalll(if you chose ShadowPunch)/ShadowPunch(if you chose ShadowBall).

I hope this helps Smile

Shadow punch uses attack, which haunter has is low. Shadowball is special attack. Go with shadow ball

Gen 3 shadow ball is attack, not special
