Is Quiet a good Nature for a Mixed Samurott Set?

0 votes

I was thinking of this:

Samurott@Expert Belt/Leftovers
Quiet Nature
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Megahorn
- Revenge?

It would be a shame to waste Samurotts attack stat, and his speed stat is laready kind of low, so what do you think?

No, since it cuts your speed. A better nature would be something like Hasty (+speed, -def) or Naive (+speed, -sp. def). Defences are sacrificed for a mixed set.

That being said, I would suggest making Samurott purely Physical/ Special competitively.

Physical set:
- Megahorn
- Waterfall
- Aqua Jet
- Razor Shell/ Swords Dance

Special set:
- Ice Beam
- Surf/ Hydro Pump
- Grass Knot
- Aqua Jet (since it's priority STAB, just to clean up any 1HP stragglers)

Though I'm guessing this is in-game, and I have to say that it doesn't really matter what nature/ movesets you have. Samurott can have both physical and special moves and do well enough as long as its level is higher than the gyms/ E4/ Team Plasma.
