Sunkern, The Seed Pokémon. It may drop out of the sky suddenly. If attacked by a Spearow or another hunter, it will violently shake it's leaves. It lives by drinking only dewdrops from under leaves. It is very weak. It's only defense is to shake it's leaves at it's attacker. It tries to move as little as it possibly can. It does so to conserve the nutrients it has stored in it's body for evolution.

Strategy Using Sunkern

Sunkern has some of the worst stats in the game, all of them are at a base of 30, which doesn't allow much to be done.
May aswell stick Sunny day on here, even if it doesn't faint, sunny day can always be useful, especially if you switch to a different Pokemon (or allow Sunkern to faint).
Leech seed and Toxic is basically there if you think Sunkern can survive long enough to use these moves. Solarbeam needs to be on this moveset if Sunny day is in use, and for the sake of having a higher damage inficting move.
Otherwise, there isn't much else to explain about this moveset, you know what to do, and thats not use Sunkern.
