What is a good LC moveset for Exeggcute?

Finally, a not Belly Drum moveset!!
I'm using basically the same moveset I would use on Tangela:

THE IMMORTAL EGGS

Exeggcute @ Eviolite
Ability: Chlorophyll
Calm Nature
196 HP / 196 SpD / 116 Def
-Leech Seed
-Infestation
-Toxic
-Ingrain

This set annoys the living heck out of everyone. Infestation keeps them in and wears them down, Toxic gradually kills more and more, and Leech Seed and Ingrain keep you alive.

A moveset is a move set so you need to answer in the answer section below
Btw Leech Seed is illegal on Exeggcute cuz it learns that at level 11, and LC battles are all at level 5.
I'm pretty sure if both the parents know a move the baby knows it as well.
Only if it's in the Egg move list. If it isn't, for example it is a level up/TM move (Gen 5 onwards) it won't be passed down.

Bulbapedia states that if both parents know a move their offspring can learn by level up, it will know it.

Right... Let's get this answered :o!
Here's a set I would personally want to use:

1

Exeggcute @ Eviolite
Ability: Chlorophyll
Level: 5
EVs: 36 HP / 196 SpA / 76 SpD / 196 Spe
Modest Nature
- Solar Beam
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Psychic
- Sleep Powder

This set is to be used alongside a Drought user (Vulpix basically). The thing is, Exeggcute is heavily outclassed by a number of LC Pokemon. Most prominently, it's bulky sets are outclassed by Foongus and Ferroseed (to an extent), and offensive sets by Bellsprout. It used to have the niche of tackling Meditite, which was a huge threat, but now that it's banned it is no longer a much appreciated 'mon.

The one thing this set has over Bellsprout though, is that it's not as sun reliant and it's teammate Vulpix can run items other than Heat Rock, like Choice items.

Modest Nature for max damage, as Chlorophyll remedies speed issues. As this is to be paired with a Vulpix, Solar Beam is opted and HP Fire is thrown in for coverage. Psychic for STAB and Sleep Powder for status.

Hope I helped!
