Sawsbuck Sun Revenge!

Item: Choice-band/Life-orb
Ability: Chlorophyll
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 Attack, 200 Speed, 28 Defense, 28 S.Defense


Retaliate

Horn-leech

Nature-power (Earthquake)

Mega-horn or Wild-charge


Retaliate is not only STAB but it gets double power if used right after another one of your Pokemon is fainted! Coming of a 328 Attack stat further boosted either to 492 (By Choice-band) or 426 (By Life-orb) will destroy almost anything that is not immune/resistant to it. Horn-leech is STAB and healing, very good especially with Life-orb as it heals off the damage. Nature-power becomes Earthquake in Wi-fi and PO (Pokemon Online) so it is an obvious choice for coverage. Mega-horn or Wild-charge choose your coverage. His speed is 557 with Chlorophyll boost which allows you to outspeed anything that is not boosted, but if you really fear scarfed Pokemon you can put full EVs into speed.

Summer form not only fits the role of SUN revenge killer but also is one of the coolest looking of his forms.
Life orb multiplies damage by 1.3x, not attack stat

Then Theres This:

Leech Seed/Horn Leech: To Heal

Double Edge: Recoil can be recovered with the moves above.

Wild Charge: Recoil can be covered.

Jump Kick: Rec- You Get it.

We'll Try This for my First Set:

Light Screen: Obviously to raise Sp. Defense.

Charm: To Lower attack. The foe, whether Physicla or special cANt hit you hard.

Toxic/Leech Seed: To Annoy.

Wood Horn/Double Edge: Wood Horn If You Chose Toxic to heal you+STAB. Double Edge+Leech Seed+STAB=Powerful.

Sawsbuck (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Sap Sipper
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Horn Leech
  • Retaliate
  • Nature Power
  • Megahorn / Jump Kick

Revenge killer.
Sap Sipper lets him take in Grass moves for teammates, boosting that attack.
Or, bring this guy out after one of you other Pokemon has fainted. STAB, double power, and Life Orb will hurt.
Nature Power becomes Earthquake, give Fire type coverage.
Megahorn covers annoying Psychics, or Jump Kick to get Fighting type coverage.
Horn Leech is STAb and recovers Life Orb damage.

I like this guy, despite him being worse in typing than a pure Grass type. He has some potential.

Ability: Herbivore

EVs: Attack, Speed, HP Nature: Adamant

Wood Horn: The physical version of Giga Drain,which is really good.

Jump Kick: Wood Hown can heal off any damage from recoil.

Double-Edge: STAB. Wood Horn can heal off any recoil damage.

Megahorn: A good, powerful attack.

Another set is the possible ingame set, not recommended but still somewhat of an option, but only for ingame:

Nature Power: Transforms into some incredible moves, like Earthquake.

Megahorn: Deals with ingame Psychic types.

Wood Horn: STAB.

Faint Attack: Deals with Ghost types. Also a more reliable attack against Psychics.

Sawsbuck is a good choice I honestly think, despite the numerous weaknesses.
Ability: sap sipper (do not waste your time and effort with chlorophyll)
moveset:
Double Edge: good strong attack with STAB
Sword Dance: sets up some good sweeper opportunities
Baton Pass: obviously to pass on your sword dance
Horn Leech: Heals Sawsbuck and makes up for the lost hp that you would have lost after using double edge and sword dance (if the opponent used an attack)

It might take some work to get synthesis but if it's for your main party put in the work, your definitely going to need it for jump kick ;)

1: Leech Horn

2: Synthesis (egg move)

3: Jump Kick

4: Thunderwave ( I like to have assist moves on my Pokemon or else you're just having a a stupid hit for hit brawl #brainsbeatsbrawns)
