OVERVIEW]
Despite decent offensive stats, Blitzle is outclassed by other Electric-types, namely Elekid, which is faster, has a higher Special Attack stat, and has a more diverse movepool. Blitzle is able to check Snivy, which is the only reason to use it over other Electric-types. Even still, Blitzle is not able to reliably check Snivy due due to its relative frailty and lack of recovery, meaning it is easily chipped down by entry hazards and Snivy's coverage moves such as Hidden Power Ground. Additionally, Blitzle is extremely frail and not particularly strong, leaving it easily revenge killed.

[SET COMMENTS]
This sets attempts to act as an offensive check to Snivy thanks to Sap Sipper, though Blitzle isn't worth using over other Electric-types such as Elekid, which outclasses Snivy otherwise thanks to its better offensive stats and coverage options. Blitzle is also outclassed by other Snivy checks such as Pawniard and Ponyta, which perform more consistently.

your overview should include a mention of blitze checking snivy, which is the only reason to use it. blitze isn't a reliable snivy check in and of itself, which is worth mentioning, too.

slash double edge after volt switch.
make hp grass the only 4th

comments should mention blitze isn't really worth it compared to other anti-snivy measures too (eg pawniard, pony), since he isn't even that good at that.

[OVERVIEW]
When talking about Blitzle checking Snivy, explain that it's not a great Snivy answer due to its relative frailty and lack of recovery, meaning it is easily chipped down by entry hazards and Snivy's coverage moves. Blitzle is not nearly fast enough to demand scarfers or priority, just say that it's frail and not particularly strong, leaving it easily checked.

[SET]
Fix your EVs, they don't account for HP Grass' IV requirements. 200 Atk / 20 Def / 40 SpA / 20 SpD / 228 Spe is what you need. Also, HP IV should be 9, not 0 (minor standard thing)

[SET COMMENTS]
You shouldn't mention Volt Switch as the main appeal of the set if it's slashed with Double Edge - rephrase this to mention that Blitzle acts as a Snivy check right away. Since that means you can get rid of the lead in on the second sentence, go into very brief extra detail about Elekid - better stats in every way and better coverage and then mention the better Snivy checks.
