So, I am doing a Pokémon Black nuzlocke, and my Serperior knows Giga Drain, but it also knows Coil, Leech Seed, and Attract. I'm preparing to battle the E4, but I just want to know if I should Serperior relearn Leaf Blade because of Coil.

is it a hidden ability one or not?

I would definitely go with Leaf Blade. Since Serperior has the same base Attack Special Attack, it comes to base power and your remaining moveset. Leaf Blade has a base power of 90, and gets a boost from Coil. Giga Drain only has a base Power of 75 and is not boosted by coil, but it does restore HP. This is extremely useful for a nuzlocke, but you already have Leech Seed to restore your HP. So, given your current moveset, I would go with Leaf Blade because it overall fits better with your moveset and should be stronger (If your stats are equal). This only applies to Overgrow ability though. Leaf Storm is better for Contrary and then I would replace Coil for Protect so you can get extra recovery.
Hope I helped!

Giga drain is a Special move which let you has some hip drained, Leaf blade is a psychical move with higher power that can let the critical hit rate more
However, Leaf storm is the best option if your Serperior has a HA, and it’s extremely strong.
Seems You has also planned the move Coil, which boost your Atk, Def, Acc by 1 stage, Ill say that leaf blade is the better, which again, if it’s a HA one, give it leafstrom.

Hope this help!
(sorry for not reading the question carefully, I forget about the coil)

I would recommend Giga Drain because it can restore HP in addition to damage. Leaf Blade might do massive damage but the healing is the most important part of Giga Drain. Leaf Blade for damage or Giga Drain for healing.
