Hello all. Well the title says it all. So what would be a good candidate for a Grass SS? A moveset would be appreciated along with the pokemon :biggrin:. Thanks in advance

Sleep powder works to and Calm Mind Celebi can be a nice sweeper.

Celebi has a better bulky things to do than try and sweep. Calm mind Celebi gets laughed at by Hera :/

Skymin is an awsome sweeper, i'm trying a scarf set on shoddy with seed flare, hp ice, earth power, and air slash

Exegutor is reliant on chlorophyl to sweep, which isnt clever (Quad weak to fire is never fun lol)

The new formes are yet to be tiered by smogon, but it's predicted skymin will get uber status. Plus most people are still on DP where the new forms do not yet work, so it's unlikely to appear in standard play just yet.

Sceptile is another poke you can consider for the role.

Exeggutor is Grass and Psychic. That's only the standard 2x weak to fire. I think you mean 4x weak to bug.

Sunny day bumps up fire damage by another 50%, which is more than enough to pretty much resign exegutor to any fire type move.

Oh yeah, forgot about that. In that case, Roserade is a MUCH better option.

With the Choice Scarf set, I would put Sleep Powder in the last slot, because Psychic hardly covers much beyond Shadow Ball, and Poison generally has bad coverage anyway, so it's just there for STAB. Moreover, this will likely only be a periodic switch-in, so you won't have to remain locked into any move when you use one...because we know that staying in would compromise your viability.

Also, Hidden Power Fire is usually better, the way I see it. It'll actually dent the Steel types like Forretress and Skarmory that will try to impede on you...or even kill them. Ice is good for Dragons and such, but only Salamence with Flamethrower is going to readily switch-in on it, and you need a sturdier counter for that anyway. Besides, you can always just put it to sleep. Ice is viable, but Fire puts down Steel types.
