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.
No, 75%.

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
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 ^_^

Flowey (Sunflora) @ Life Orb
Ability: Solar Power
Nature: Modest (+SpAtk -Atk)
EVs: 252 SpAtk, 252 Spd, 4 Def

  • Solar Beam
  • Flower Shield
  • Sunny Day
  • Synthesis

This moveset is based on draining your own HP to get as much power as you can get plus reliable recovery through Sunny Day + Synthesis. Solar Beam is a great STAB, works right away in the sun, and is boosted by both the Life Orb and Solar Power. Flower Shield is slightly less reliable than Toxic, as Trachy used- but it can increase that low Def stat to make it as high as it can get too. Sunny Day is an obvious option as it needs to be there to work with Solar Beam and Synthesis. Synthesis is a reliable recovery that is best used in the sun.
Good partners for a double/triple battle must be bulky and have Follow Me or Rage Powder- Tangrowth could work for its nice bulk, it's boosted by Flower Shield when it's used by Sunflora and it can learn Rage Powder as an egg move. Another good partner would be Amoonguss, as it can learn Rage Powder, has usable bulk and has Effect Spore- if Amoonguss is used, make sure it has Effect Spore!
