-Sludge Bomb is Weepinbell's strongest attack, severely damaging top-tier threats such as Hitmonchan and Flareon.
-Hidden Power Ground hits opposing Rock- ,Poison-, and Steel-types such as Magcargo, Arbok, Mawile, and Metang that would otherwise resist or be immune to Weepinbell's Poison-type STAB.

I honestly think the set should be:
Sunny Day
Sludge Bomb
Hidden Power Ground
Solar Beam / Swords Dance / Sleep Powder

Getting something to set sun for you and to then safely get something as frail as weepinbell on the field is so difficult, not to mention and then follow that with an SD, leaving a crippled weep a total of two turns to click moves, and in that kind of effort you might as well just use bellossom. Therefore, weepinbell should be self sufficient, and this set accomplishes that by letting it set sun itself. Now, dropping sleep powder sounds insane, but honestly weepinbell should be wallbreaking or endgame sweeping only. If you want a full sweep or a better team player bring tang or bell. And weep really doesn't even need SD to accomplish a sweep, base 90 Attack is really good for something as fast as weepinbell in the sun, and the thing it has over bell and tang is the option to go mixed. Trop can too but sludge bomb hits way way harder than its hp flying. Solar beam makes sure weep can break through the waters you need to and is weeps best move against a lot of things.
