Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Serperior or Meganium?

0 votes

I'm unsure which I should use in Black 2. I had already gotten the baby Chikorita all ready. I mean, I got really lucky getting a girl and bold nature. In addition, she has Ancient Power.
But then I started my Black 2 file, and just so happen got a female Snivy, modest nature (which isn't too bad)!

If this is important, the rest of my team is Mienfoo, Skarmory, Cyndaquil, Corphish, and Espeon (I'm sorry if the synergy or balance sucks, but I assembled a team of Pokemon that I really like).

So, which should I keep? Bold Chikorita with Ancient Power (who will eventually be Meganium), or modest Snivy (who will be Serperior)? Like, which would be better in the long run in Black 2?

As I like neither of them I don't think I'll be answering this :P

Modest ftw!!
If DW abilities are available, Serperior would probably be the better pokemon.  Contrary would make leaf storm serperior's best move by far XD

Probably Chikorita, although Ancient Power isn't that good on it. But you should keep it if you really want to, it still can be kind of useful.

A good easy to get moveset would be:

Meganium @ Leftovers
Ability: Overgrow
EVs (If it matters now): 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Bold Nature
- Giga Drain
- Leech Seed / Ancient Power
- Toxic
- Synthesis

Hope I helped you :)

It depends. If your looking for a good Pokemon with defense, go with Meganium. If you want a Pokemon with good speed, get Serperior. Now Meganium has better HP, Attack, SP. ATK and SP.DEF. Serperior only beats Meganium by speed. However Serperior can learn amazing attacks. Either one is a good choice but if I were you I would choose Meganium because not only does it have better stats than Serperior but also you can make it very powerful especially with Ancient Power. Serperior could also fit in your team because you can use it to sweep foes because of it's amazing speed. Here is movesets for them.

Meganium with Leftovers
Ancient Power
Energy Ball
Earthquake
Body Slam/Aromatherapy/Hidden Power/Toxic

Serperior with Leftovers/Life Orb
Coil
Leaf Storm/Leaf Blade
Earthquake
Leech Seed

Hope this helped!

Meganium has equal defenses. They both also have good defenses, neither of them lacks bulkiness.

Meganium is an amazing Pokemon. If you would like a defensive Pokemon,(not to mention, one that survives STAB supereffective moves) Meganium is a satisfying choice. Give her Synthesis, Protect, Leach seed/toxic, and Energy ball. (source: experience)
Serperior I dont know much about, since I haven't been able to get any of the new games. However, from what I hear, not many people think it useful in battle. (source: youtube, lets-players)
