Hey, I'm going to research this further to find actual moves but I'm just going to voice some thoughts I'd like your opinions on.
I'm going to create a sunnybeam team later on and need 3 fire and 3 grass (probably change to include Castform *crosses fingers) I'm not using 'Ubers' for this team (i.e. Groudon)
I was thinking about Houndoom for the main sunnybeam tactics:
(whatever nature you suggest cause I hate these things lol)

Houndoom (flash fire)
sunny day
Solar beam
Flamethrower (fire blast, maybe)
Crunch

Castform (forecast)
Sunny day
Solar beam
Weather ball/flamethrower
Another move/ any suggestions

Rapidash (flash fire)
Sunny day
Solar beam
Fire blast
another move

Sceptile (overgrow)
Solar beam
sunny day
Leaf blade
Crunch/crush claw/dragon breath/endeavor/leech seed

Vileplume (Chlorophyll)
Sunny day
solar beam
sludge bomb
Sleep powder

Jumpluff (Chlorophyll)
Sunny day
Solar beam
Sleep powder
Confusion/helping hand

Cradily (Suction cups)
Sunny day
Solar beam
E-quake
sludge bomb

Problems exist.

- A team can only consist of six Pokemon.
- Not every Pokemon needs Sunny Day.
- Three of the Pokemon there are poor SunnyBeamers.

SunnyBeamers really need to have other incentives besides STAB on one-turn Solarbeam.

Woops, sorry. This's different from my original idea so I just put in some pokemon I thought'd work and choose later as I begin training. I agree about the sunny day comment, though. When filtering out some of the pokemon, I'll remove sunny days from some of them.

All right, and you still need to consider secondary benefits. You've got the idea by taking advantage of Chlorophyll and double-benefit, but that's only for a few.

It would be useful to try to get Hidden Power Fire on your grass types because that will get powered up by Sunny day (and then Scptile will be able to Dragon throw (sort of))

Exeggcutor has to be the best sunnybeamer I have ever used. He is better than Groudon or Ho-oh for Sunnybeaming IMO.

Groudon is a terrible sunnybeamer, even if it does have instant sunny day

Needs more Exeggutor and Moltres IMO. Moltres can't sunnybeam, but an entire team does not have to be filled with sunnybeam pokes, right?
