At first glance, the Sewaddle/Swadloon/Leavanny family looks like it mightbe a repeat of theCaterpie/Metapod/ButterfreeorWeedle/Kakuna/Beedrillfamilies, but there aren't that many similarities here. The only absolute must-have for Leavanny's moveset is X-Scissor, the notoriously powerful Bug-type move that takes advantage ofits excellent physical attack stat. For a Grass-type STAB, your best best is probably Razor Leaf.
