Also, poison point + rocky helmet is a match made in heaven

So my Roserade has:
Nature: Modest
Item: Black Sludge
Evs: 252 Sp Attack, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Ability: Natural Cure
Moveset:
Leaf Storm
Rest
Hidden Power (Rock)
Sludge Bomb

Sludge Bomb is a great move and has 135 base power STAB, also can poison.
Hidden Power Rock is so great as it covers 3 of Roserade's 4 weaknesses.
Rest is to heal Roserade. Switch out to awaken Roserade, using Natural Cure.
You can use Leaf Storm, and then use Rest and switch Roserade out, which negates the stat loss. Then you can repeat with 210 Base Power STAB Leaf Storm, that doesn't get weaker every time.

This is a great set and personally think the best possible Roserade set.

I haven't chosen an item and I don't think the ability is so important, so I'm just gonna show my moveset, nature, EVs and strategy:

Modest Nature
EVs: 6HP / 252 SpAtk / 252 Spe
-Energy Ball
-Sludge Bomb
-Sleep Powder
-Extrasensory

I always prefer to deal lots of damage. That's why it's modest and has energy ball instead of giga drain.
Sludge bomb is STAB
Sleep powder in case you need it
Extrasensory: Coverage

In case you don't know what that is I'm gonna explain it to you:
Example: Grass Type resists energy ball but weak against sludge bomb, then it's not a threat,
but the only types that resist (or are immune to) energy ball and sludge bomb are poison and steel, that's what I worry about, so to cover that resistance I will use extrasensory to his other poison types super effectively, but not against steel types so it's our only problem. I was thinking about Hidden Power Ground to just kill those resistances but it doesn't have effect or a good power so I preferred extrasensory.

What do you think?
