Lucario is way better than Samurott. No competition.

Lucario has much better stats, typing, etc. However, you must consider that Samurott, as your starter, is probably higher leveled.

Good sets:

Lucario @ Life Orb
Trait: Justified / Inner Focus
Adamant Nature (if you can get it)
EVs (if you can): 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 HP
Moves:
- Swords Dance
- ExtremeSpeed
- Close Combat
- Crunch

Samurott @ Life Orb
Trait: Torrent
Timid Nature (if you can get it)
EVs: (if you can) 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Moves:
- Hydro Pump / Surf
- Ice Beam
- Aqua Jet
- Taunt

Grass Knot over Aqua Jet if you're going special.

Depends on your team. If you need a wall/ defensive poke and a specail sweeper/special attacker, go with Lucario. If you need a regular sweeper/attacker, go with samurott. Though in my opinion those movesets are awful. but if your stuck with them, keep 'em. these movesets will get you somewhere.

Lucario

Extreme Speed
Aura Sphere
Iron Defense
Iron Tail

Samurott

Dig
Surf
Ice Beam
Megahorn

Actually, it's funny because Lucario beats Samurott in both way; Physical AND Special, as Lucario can run a nice Nasty Plot set with Vacuum Wave.
Yeah, but you may need a water type on your team, or someone who can have megahorn, etc. It's all about what you want on your team man.
