What is a good moveset for Sunflora?

Another Pokemon I just got in a trade. It came with:

Sunny Day: Raises Speed with Chlorophyll, used for strategy.

Synthesis: Heals Pokemon 100% in Sunlight.

Solarbeam: High power, high accuracy, takes no need to charge when Sunny, STAB.

Toxic: Inflicts toxic poison.

Sunflora (M) @ Choice Specs
Trait: Solar Power
EVs: 40 HP / 252 SAtk / 216 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- SolarBeam
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Earth Power
- Sludge Bomb
synthesis only heals 75% in sun :P
Only???? That's so much..
It is a lot of healing actually. It heals more than Roost and Recover and a bit less than Rest but without he annoying sleeping. Synthesis in Sun is great and reliable for a healing source.
its 66%
Shut up people. I was stupid three years ago. And I'm not going to bother editing all my mistakes.

Good moveset, weather based attacks aren't too frequent, so many aren't prepared for it, and either of sunflora's abilities will add to this set, if you don't want to take all the time for solarbeam, (which is difficult to use if you can't set up sunny day first) there is always leaf storm.

"weather based attacks aren't too frequent..." 11 month later, look at gen V.

I'm going to try at a Trick Room Sun Sweeper for Sunkern. For LC obviously, for trolling reasons :3

Sunkern (M) @ Life Orb
Sunkern
Trait: Solar Power
EVs: 196 SpAtk / 196 HP / 116 SpDef
Quiet Nature (+SpAtk, -Spd)
- Synthesis
- SolarBeam
- Sludge Bomb
- Hidden Power [Fire]

Why is there no Little Cup set for Sunkern already? Oh well. xD

This one is for use of Trick Room, in Sun. Synthesis heals you 100% in sunlight, and considering the bulk drop in Solar Power, helps with it's longevity. EVs allow it to hopefully take a hit and deal some damage back. SolarBeam is obvious STAB. Sludge Bomb is coverage, as well as screwing Bugs. Hidden Power Fire is coverage for Steel types who won't take Sludge Bomb. With Solar Power bumping up it's SpAtk and Trick Room hopefully making it move first, sun pellet might actually be of some use.

I think is good this:
-Sunny Day
-Solar Beam
-Hidden Power [Rock]
-Earth Power
Recomended ability: Chlorophyll
Recomended item: Heat Rock

If you don't like Sunny Day is good this:
-Leech Seed/Endeavor(Sunkern)
-Leaf Storm/Petal Dance/Giga Drain
-Hidden Power [Rock]
-Earth Power
Recomended ability: Any/Early Bird(Hidden)
Recomended item: If with Leech Seed and/or Giga Drain: Big Root to cure more, if with Petal Dance: Persim Berry to don't take confusion, if with Leaf Storm: Miracle Seed to finish instantly

Hope it helps ^_^
