    Description:

    Average Sized Gourgeist is arguably the most mediocre out of all the four Gourgeist forms, but it does have its advantages, for example it's still decently fast while having more bulk and attack power than a good portion of NU. Because of this, it can take advantage of certain sets that the others such as Gourgeist XL aren't fast enough or Gourgeist SL aren't bulky enough to do.

    Set #1: Flame Charge

    Gourgeist @ Life Orb
    Ability: Frisk
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
    Adamant Nature
    - Flame Charge
    - Seed Bomb
    - Rock Slide / Trick-or-Treat
    - Shadow Sneak / Phantom Force

    Set Description:

    This set is simple, use Flame Charge to boost up your speed to decent levels, then proceed to tear shit up with STAB Seed Bomb. Rock Slide is there to nail Fire types that would otherwise ruin your fun, or you could run Trick-or-Treat to transform your opponent into a Ghost type to nail it with your STAB Shadow Sneak. You could use Phantom Force as an alternative, but unfortunately it's not recommended due to it being a two turn attack.

    Other Options:

    Gourgeist's other options are performed better by its other sizes. However, a mixed Flame Charge Charge Beam set running Shadow Ball and Flamethrower could also be useful for this set.

    It's worth a shot man. I had good luck testing it.

    After testing it out, I have determined that it doesn't work well on Mono Grass Teams. It has a good move pool and a decent defense stat, but any threat that Gourgeist would be good for on Mono Grass, would be better to be countered by a different Pokemon. However, it works well when not constrained by mono teams. It may even work well for Mono Ghost. I haven't tried that yet.
