Serperior is actually really helpful in taking down high defense Pokemon in the E4. I think I used it on Musharna, Jelicent, Conkledurr, and Scrafty. Leech Seed and Giga Drain are a snake's best friend. Growth helps too.

It's hard to get a good moveset for Samurott because of Surf and Waterfall. CURSE YOU HM'S!

The solution is to have a water pokemon around when you need to surf/waterfall other than Samurott.

I picked Oshawott just because he's awesome haha. He is really weak though in the beginning of the game if I remember right. So, I had to build up a team of Pokémon just to be his bodyguards while I was training him.

He's a level 55 Samurott right now, and I still have to train him the same way. Bodyguards, bodyguards, bodyguards.

I'm getting bored of Samurott right now. I kinda wish I picked Snivy instead I don't want to start the game again because it's so soon after finishing the game. I will start it again soon

I just got black and I'm not sure if I want Snivy or Tepig(played White with Mijumaru)....I want to use Sawk and I'd enjoy using the Water frog. There is also Victini/Darmatin as a fire type. However, I hate Snivy. Completely.

personally, an emboar can be effectively replaced by a Victini/Darumaka

Water-types are fairly hard to get (for me at least) and you can catch a LOAD of grass types in Pinwheel

my choice was a Oshawott
Are you sure?
Cuz in the previous games, getting a fire type was pretty hard compared to water and grass.

grass - pinwheel forest
fire - Victini/Darumaka (both available after Castelia)
water - unavailable until you get surf (or Iccirus City)

bar the monkeys (which you can get all 3 in pinwheel forest), water is the hardest to get imo

You can also get swana...
Also you can get whatever monkey the opposite of your type, i didn't even know you could, so that's a bonus as well.

I chose Snivy, due to the fact that I used mainly grass starters, but in the end its like level 60 know and i still don't really like it. So i believe I am just going to trade it.
