If you're asking whether a Serperior will OHKO an Emboar at full health the answer is NO. Never.

252+ Atk Serperior Aerial Ace vs. 0 HP / 0- Def Emboar: 158-188 (43.7 - 52%) -- 14.1% chance to 2HKO

That's Adamant 252 Attack Serperior using a Super Effective Aerial Ace on a Gentle 0 HP and 0 Def Emboar. There's a chance it might take 3 hits to kill whereas Flare Blitz from Emboar will wreck Serperior each time.

Wait... Why are our calcs different ? I removed every defense and HP IVs on Emboar, and made it Lonely. I gave Serperior Choice Band. Serperior is Adamant. 31 IVs in attack. Where did you checked ? I used http://pokemonshowdown.com/damagecalc/
You gave Serperior a band.
It changed everything, uh ?

Technically, although nobody will use Aerial Ace on Serperior, and nobody will fight Emboar with a Serperior. Except ... an idiot? The guy on the picture above.

252+ Atk Choice Band Serperior Aerial Ace vs. 0 HP / 0- Def Emboar: 292-344 (88.4 - 104.2%) -- 31.3% chance to OHKO

Here is the calc of a Serperior using Aerial Ace against an Emboar under every weakening circumstances for Emboar's HP and Defense, and every strengthening circumstance for Serperior. But still, chances to OHKO are pretty thin.

My Pokèmon Black and White walkthrough guide: If you're having trouble getting through the Elite Four, teach Serperior Aerial Ace!
Me: I'll try that.
Me, after failing the league 3 more times: Forget this. Aerial Ace without STAB on a Pokemon with medium base attack=Fighting Type elite four knocking the stuffing out of me.
