Seed bomb-Good power, STAB, more reliable than power whip

hidden power [rock]- he has decent special attack, and this would cover nearly all of his weaknesses

crunch-good power, unexpected attack

swords dance- powers up moves

Power Whip or Seed Bomb to Start for some STAB.

Crunch, for some good coverage.

Sludge Bomb, for some more coverage

Maybe Ingrain or Toxic, to get a nice advantage.

Mine has this for its moveset:

Power Whip: High power, STAB. The high power really makes up for the lower accuracy.

Stun Spore/Sleep Powder: Paralyzes the foe, which also slows them down. Or you can put them to Sleep with Sleep Powder. Mine has Stun Spore.

Crunch: Good power, high accuracy, decent chance to lower defense.

Synthesis: Used to heal Carnivine.
