Retaliate over Return on Sawsbuck. Otherwise, don't bother using it.
Return is better for sweeping.
I know. What I'm saying is either use Sawsbuck as a revenge killer or don't use it at all. There are better Chlorophyll sweepers.
Sawsbuck can be a pretty good sweeper, adding Jump Kick might be a good idea though.
I'd use something such as Tangrowth, Leafeon, or Victreebel over it. That Normal typing is what I don't like about Sawsbuck (except when using Retaliate) because of that weakness to Mach Punch. And Conkeldurr makes a big enough dent in this team as is.
Also, Nature Power becomes Earthquake.
Mach Punch at least should be taken care of with synergy, and I know about Nature Power BTW.
But yeah, there are definitely some other options for a Clorophyll sweeper, not saying against that.
But STAB Return and JK is kinda what Sawsbuck has over Venusaur, so getting rid of Nature Power and adding JK and putting EQ on E-Vire and maybe Venusaur is probably worth considering.
