Is Shiftry any good as a Defogger and special attacker?

I've been trying to use less common pokemon and because Shiftry can get defog through breeding I'm thinking of using him. Is he any good on a team that doesn't use sun, or should I reserve him for a team with Charizard Y? And is a moveset of Leaf Storm, Nasty Plot, Dark Pulse and Defog a good idea?

Unfortunately it pretty much needs chlorophyll active to be able to sweep at all.

Ok, I'll have to use a sun team. Would the moveset I posted initially work there? Or would Solarbeam be better than Leaf Storm?

I use Shiftry as a mixed attacker in the Sun.

Growth
Beat Up
Leaf Tornado
Whirlwind

It's an...odd set to say the least but if it's decent.
