Sunflora is between bottow and low
The absolute worst part about Sunflora is that you have to deal with Sunkern for so long
You are not getting a Sun Stone until Nimbasa. There is no wiggle room for this.
You're dragging a Sunkern, with all of its terrible frailty, weakness & slowness, past Cheren (where it is kind of able to last long enough due to relative weakness of everything around it, but even then those Patrats & Lillipups put a dent in you), the poison & fire infected Virbank, and then Burgh (and the sewers filled with Zubat & Grimer).
That's terrible enough for Snivy or Sewaddle but they can at least evolve before then and have some more stats to work with. The only reason I'm dealing with Sunkern now is because I can get a Sun Stone early out of the Dream Radar (and also because I kind of like Sunflora)
