Both are regarded as decent lenses.

The only question is about changing lenses, i.e., convenience.

If you get the 18-200, you can walk around with it all day and never change your lens, no need to carry a second lens with you, so the 18-55 can stay home. In fact, you can even sell it if you want.

If you get the 55-250, you'd need to carry both lenses if you want to shoot wider angles (18-55), but the positive is that you'd have 50mm extra reach.

The trade off is convenience vs. extra reach.

Only you can make the call.
