I haven't seen much Pokemon-based discussion lately and I want to focus on a really potent threat that requires more creative counters. Samurot @ Life Orb / Leftovers 252 Atk / 252 Spe /4 HP Adamant -Swords Dance -Aqua Jet -Waterfall -Megahorn At first glance, Samurott is just another stupid water type, with good offenses and reasonable bulk. "Outstanding" isn't the word I'd use. One thing, and one thing only, however, distinguishes Samurott as a potent offensive threat- Megahorn. With Megahorn, Samurott can muscle through many of the Pokemon that ought to counter it, such as bulky grass types, Mesprit, and even Jynx with some prediction or some luck on your side. From there, you can use Samurott's other useful prospects, like Aqua Jet to pick off frailer sweepers. All in all, he's a very difficult Pokemon to "counter" in the classical sense, especially since everybody is throwing all the defensive EVs they can spare on a water Pokemon into spdef to stop the ubiquitous Gorebyss. Things to discuss- -How do you counter Samurott, or at least provide a defense against him on your team? -What makes a good teammate for Samurott, and what are Pokemon that have these traits? -Is Samurott most useful when paired up with smahers on a more hyper-offensive team, or as a part of a fwg core or the like on a more balanced or defensive team?
