I would say no.
His defences aren't all that great, so the recoil damage will definitely be noticed. While he has better Special Attack, his Special options are actually rather limited - mainly to Hidden Power, Focus Blast (which is too inaccurate for my liking) and Solar Beam for coverage. Solar Beam is a good option if you give him Sunny Day as well, though. I would suggest giving him moves such as Earthquake (although you may prefer Dig for the out of battle effect), Brick Break, Thunder Punch, or Shadow Claw. Double-Edge adds no coverage to him (although it is obviously more powerful than either Swift or Cut), but personally I would still forgo it, or at least get it temporarily and get rid of it as soon as it can get something better.
