Default Grass Special Sweeper?

The title speaks for itself. I need to know what is the best grass s.s. I know it's kind of annoying. I was looking and I saw a good amount of physical s. and s.s. with crap movepools. So what should I do? It would also be helpful if anyone could include a nature and moveset. Thanks in advance!

Venusaur or Roserade might fit the bill. Exeggutor has high special, but I dunno its movepool well. Exeggutor is also kinda slow.

Roserade can get Weather Ball, Leaf Storm, some Hidden Power, Sludge Bomb, Hyper Beam (haha), ExtraSensory (a Budew Egg move from Nuzleaf).

Thanks. I was tempting the idea of Roserade. I'm going to take a look at it's movepool.

Exeggutor is obscene once you get the sun to come out. Exeggutor has obscene Speed after Sunny Day and kills things with either Solarbeam, Psychic, or what not. Alternatively, you can go Specs and Leaf Storm things to death. Hidden Power and other moves as needed for coverage. Also, Exeggutor has Sleep Powder to shut down some counters and OMGTFBBQ it has Explosion to rape Blissey so another Special Sweeper to come in and finish the job. :3

Roserade is a fair alternative though.

I had a Roserade with Sleep Powder, Leaf Storm, Sludge Bomb, and Razor Leaf and it turned out awesome.

Then a steel type comes in and goes OLOL!

But yeah, I've been through the list and the best candidates for a grass-type special sweeper are:
*Exegutor (Needs Sunny Day Support)
*Celebi
*Sceptile
*Shiftry
*Roserade
*Cherrim (Needs Sunny Day Support)
*Shaymin (When it arrives)

Your best bets are gonna be roserade, sceptile and celebi. Sunny day abuse is viable but all it does is strap on an even bigger fire weakness. The main problem with grass-type special sweepers is that they have massive problems dealing with steel types, so you're going to need to invest in some IV breeding for HP Ground or fire. If you want any sets for the pokes, drop me a PM and I'll find you the standards :)

Sceptile and Celebi are my best options. Sceptile has good Special Attack, is insanely fast, and can pull off a Choice Specs set fairly well, but you may need to IV Breed for special Hidden powers in order to make him effective. However, Celebi has great defensive stats and HP, and thus he pulls off Calm Minding between STAB Psychic and STAB Grass Knot very well, even though damn Heatran may wall his attacks unless he's gotten like 3-4 Calm Minds in. Moreover, he's a much better tank sweeper than Suicune given that he has instant recovery in Recover, much like how Slowbro gets Slack Off; of course, Celebi has the advantage of being faster than Gyarados with a little EV investment to avoid nasty Taunts, and shrugs off Gliscor's Aerial Aces when Bold natured and can just pound him to the ground with Psychics and wait out the Taunt (If Gliscor has it) in the process if he has to. So...all in all, I prefer Celebi, but Sceptile is very capable, and, given a Choice Scarf, Roserade can be a great asset to your team, throwing out Leaf Storms and Sleep Powders when you need it to.

Sunflora has good stats, but no movepool.

Roserade and Exeggutor are really awesome for the job though.

Standard Eggy:

Eggy@Lefties/Heat Rock
Modest
252SpAtt/252Spd/6HP
Sunny Day
Sleep Powder/HP Ground
Solar Beam/Grass Knot
Explosion
Standard Clorophyll set. As i've said, they get raped by fire types and steel types, so HP Ground is preferable.

If you have sunny day support, specs Eggy becomes viable too:

Eggy@Choice Specs
Modest
252SpAtt/252Spd/6HP
Leaf Storm/Solar Beam
Psychic
HP Fire/Sludge Bomb
Explosion/Grass Knot/Energy Ball
Being already set up leaves you more options for move use. Again, HP fire is preferable so steels dont give you a slap in the face.
