Competitively, is Floette better than Florges in some cases?

Because I was thinking...with Evolite, both of Floette's defenses would be stronger than its evolution's, wouldn't they?

With eviolite, floette would have a minimum base sp defense of 270. Florges has a min sp defense of 281. Its minimum defense would be 133.5 (134). Florges min defense is 126.

Florges is MUCH better then floette. Floette can't get moonblast, wish, aromatherapy, or anything like that. Plus floette has lower special defense, terrible hp, and its defense isn't that much higher. Plus it can't do much with its miserable sp attack stat.

In other words, no recovery, barely any support moves, not the greatest stats, how would floette outclass florges?

Florges is my favorite X and Y Pokemon! It was the first competitive poke I bred, and its set still works! here it is!

Florges@ leftovers
Ability: Flower Veil
Bold nature 252 defense, 252 hp, 4 sp defense
Moves:
Calm mind
Protect
Wish
Moonblast

Florges has a high enough special defense that it doesn't need investment! You send it out and use calm mind, increasing your special defense to skyrocket levels as well as your special attack. Wish and protect is to stall and heal while setting up. And after that, moonblast is there to sweep. After calm mind boosts, moonblast also hits stuff that resist pretty hard. With its defense evs, it can live a poison jab from a max attack garchomp.

Eternal form floette could be more powerful than Florges, but it's not entirely available yet
Yes, I agree. It has higher special attack and the strongest fairy move in the game. But I wouldn't include it because as you said it isn't available and really shouldn't be compared to Florges.
Floette-E is Showdown exclusive though...?
nope, hackers already have it on X/Y. Here is a youtube video of a guy using it in a wifi battle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dn-7w3UoB3M
Yeah shiny Yveltal used one against me
Floette can get Moonblast, Wish, and Autopheripy (I spelled that wrong but Idc) just look on her PokeDex page

Also I don't know where you got those stats from, but Floette DOES have better sp. def with Eviolite. Floette has a max sp. def of 324 (486 with Eviolite) while Florges has a max sp. def of 447.

Well, Florges is already a special tank, and eviolite floette is ok, but if you hack and get floette eternal form then that's the way to go, but it's not available yet, so I'd recommend Florges instead.

Florges@leftovers
Trait: flower veil

Hope I helped!
