For an attack seperior
I want that moveset:
Coil
Leafblade
Aerial ace
dragon tail

--

For an defensive seperior
I want that:
Coil
leaf blade or giga drain
aerial ace
Leech seed or dragon tail

--

But I am more into offensive Pokemons
So my question is, if it is worthy training his EV into a offensive serperior.

Most of the sets I've seen for Serperior are offensive, so yes, Serperior can indeed be used offensively and I'd say it is completely worth it to EV train it in Attack or Special Attack, depending on the kind of moveset you use.

By the way, I'd recommend using a Specially offensive Serperior if you have one with the ability Contrary, which makes all stat changes have the opposite effect. This is because Serperior gets Leaf Storm, which with the ability, would give Serperior a +2 Special Attack boost each time it uses the move. I'm sure your Coil set would work pretty decently too, though.

Hope I helped!

Serperior is unique in that it can fire off Leaf Storms and gain a +2 in Special Attack due to its hidden ability Contrary. Here is a very effective moveset, which is extremely offensive:

Serperior @ Life Orb
Ability: Contrary
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Leaf Storm
- Dragon Pulse
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Giga Drain

So, to answer your question, always train Serperior in Special Attack. It works in tandem with its best moveset.

Just by curiosity is woth creating an offensive blastoise and meganium too?
Offensive sets might be interesting, but generally they aren't worth it. Not only do Blastoise and Meganium have poor offensive stats to begin with, but both of their defensive sets offer excellent utility (Blastoise having Rapid Spin and Meganium having Aromatherapy) and they would not be able to afford these moves if they were running offensive sets.
