Goodra a better tank or special Sweeper?

I really like Goodra and want to incorporate him into my team but I'm not sure if I should raise him into a tank or a special sweeper. He seems extremely viable in both situations. Opinions?

Never a sweeper. ´He's either a wallbreaker, special or mixed, or a tank.

modest goodra should be gooey so you can slow down opponent and get some good hits on it. If you want total wall pokemon then you should get hydration goomy and wall

Ability: Sap Sipper
EVs: 252 HP, 252 Sp. Atk, 4 Sp. Def
Nature: Modest
-Thunderbolt
-Flamethrower
-Sludge Bomb
-Ice Beam

I'd suggest this:

Ability: Sap Sipper/Gooey your pick.

EVs: 252 HP, 100 Attack (Will make sense when Heathran comes into play), rest SPA

Nature: Quiet. He's not fast enough and he can take any special hit as it is. His other stats are too important to let go off.

-Draco meteor
-Flamethrower/Fire Blast (Feeling Lucky, punk?)
-Sludge Bomb
- Power Whip/Outrage/Earthquake

Earthquake is gonna be NEEDED once Heathran comes in, with those EVs, you can one shot him. If not, he'll wall you to death.

Oh, and item: Assault Vest. So you can take on ANY special sweeper.

Everything except speed and the attack you aren't going to use.

Except Goodra CAN make use of the attack.

Sure he "can". But you don't really need to invest the time into trying to get both attack stats.
