you don't just use sunkern in a battle...
Did you ask another Sunkern question before this one?
He did ask another Sunkern question. It was hidden, and he made a complaint on Meta.
"Behold! 'Tis Sunkern, the Grass-type dynamo. Be frozen in amazement at its 180 base stat total, which technically "outclasses" all other Pokemon. Be possessed by admiration at its movepool, which contains a gargantuan ten viable moves. Be overcome with awe at its abilities, which make it a veritable powerhouse under sunshine. Seriously though, Sunkern's terrible. Don't use it."
- Smogon's D/P LC Sunkern entry. They didn't even bother making one for Gen V, that's how rubbish Sunkern is.
Just face it, Sunkern is horrible all around. On his best day, he sucks.
Curse you sunkern! You and your horrible stats and power! Lol jk
Sunkern is God.
None of you would last in the real world. Saying that sort of stuff is cruelty to the Sunkern franchise. ;~;
If Sunkern is a franchise,  I ain't buyin'!
You hatey my baby, I punchy your facey. :3
Sound like a Puerto Rican New Yorker. I live in New York,  so I know.
Sunkern haters are damned by Arceus.

Well, I'll give this a try lol if you are going to use Sunkern (trolling or not) try putting it in a Trick Room team with some support from the sun. Slap a Choice Specs on that thing with Solar Power, spam Solar Beam and see what happens. Modest nature 252 SpA and the rest doesn't really matter. Good luck

Give it a focus sash, and use Endeavour. Assuming the opponent attacks, Sunkern will probably be taken down to its sash. Since Sunkern will almost certainly be slower it will then use Endeavour and take them down to 1HP as well.

Of course this is incredibly gimmicky, and is stopped by a lot of things - Burn, Poison, Sandstorm, Hail, Sun (because of Solar Power), multi-hit moves, entry hazards etc. You get the idea - anything that will make the Focus Sash useless will make this strategy useless, and you will have a dead Sunkern incredibly quickly.
