Perhaps a Bug/Ground type would be able to boost sun a bit.
Sun can remove the water weakness, while this pokemon could tank some of the thunders that rain teams love to throw around and tank some of the earthquakes (and possibly rock type moves too) that many fire type mons can't handle.
Also, a bug/ground could hit the Latis and Heatran for super effective damage with its stabs, two pokemon that Sun teams struggle with.
Depending on the stats, it could also act as a Terrakion check among other fighters. Although countering fighting is not necessarily a primary goal of this CAP, it is acknowledged as one of the most common and powerful types in OU.
To be honest, I'm not good enough at analyzing the metagame to say much more about what I think a Bug/Ground type would do, but I do think that if we end up trying to buff sun, we shouldn't only consider types like Fire, Grass, etc.
I don't want to create a sun sweeper, or any sweeper. I don't think any one sweeper would be able to simultaneously nerf all of the types/playstyles that we want it to. I think the end product will likely be more of a support mon with a niche to help sun teams. An alternate typing could certainly help with that.
