Starmie would be one of your best bets.

Yes you can. In fact, I'll throw in the moveset I'm currently using for it.

Surf
Thunderbolt
Ice Beam
Psychic

No offense but that moveset is terrible. (but I'll probably do worse) :oops:

I'm really not that sure on R/S moves, does Staryu/Starmie learn T-wave in R/S?

Anyway try this:

Confuse Ray
Minimize
Surf
Recover

Just basically make the opponent Confused, Minimize a few times and Recover if you've lost health and just Surf them to death.

I'm sure Khold will think up a better one though.

My moveset is this:

Thunder Wave
Confuse Ray
Surf
Recover

Just Thunder Wave them then confuse them. Then attack.

Alakazam is a better speical sweeper.

@Leftovers/Lum Berry
Psychic
Calm Mind
Ice Punch
Thunderpunch/Recover

Note that Kazam's recover is VERY optional because it can and probably will be OHKO'd or be dealth 90% damage in one hit due to its nonexistant defense.

Elemence is also a potential elemental Sweeper.

Salemence@Scope Lens, Petaya Berry, Leftovers
Timid
Intimidate
6/0/0/252/252/0
Crunch
Dragon Claw
Fire Blast
Hydro Pump

This pogey may have less offense than Zammy and Star, but it's good enough. Its moveset's verstality and high base power can compensate for that.
Crunch (Popular Psychic Types and Dusclops).
Dragon Claw (fellow Salemence).
Fire Blast (mainly Skarmory).
Hydro Pump (high base power, effective on many pogeys).
Scope Lens for hit-and-run elemence.
Petaya Berry for those elemence that is planning to stay put and sweep.
Leftovers for greater endurance, since Salemence does have pretty good defense.
