It may sound stupid... But, I don't want to remove Samurott because of the relationship b/w Samurott and my protagonist. I want to emulate the Pokémon Trainer in the manga and not remove the Samurott Pokémon. In terms of speed and power specifically, Keldeo is much better because of its stat despite the fact Kingdra has the speed advantage under the rain effect?
I appreciate the patience and consideration up to this point, I just want to be convinced before I move forward.
