Should I teach my Jolly Samurott Hydro Cannon?

Currently using Surf, Razor Shell, X-Scissor, and Slash on a lvl 40 Jolly Samurott. I'm just now headed for the 6th gym.

Swap Razor Shell for Revenge. It is not a good idea even in game to double up on the same elemental type attack

I'd not, never was a fan of that class of moves in single player (5 PP 120 BP 70 ACC), plus you want Surf for utility purposes.

Waterfall is the best bet for a jolly Samurott

You're thinking Hydro Pump, Hydro Cannon is the Water Hyper Beam and is far less useful. TC you're in game so do what you want, but generally speaking Hydro Cannon isn't worth it. The fact that he is Jolly makes it all the less desirable.

Shinji X Asuka is the most sacred pairing in all of anime. That is an unnegotiable fact.

Except that Razor Shell runs off Samurott's much better Phys Atk stat, whereas Surf runs off it's lower Sp Atk stat. The whole point of having a Jolly Samurott is to ignore Sp type attacks in favor of Phys type attacks boosted by Swords Dance.

Then switch surf for Aqua Tail which is physical

Aqua Tail is significantly weaker than Surf and Razor Shell, and I need Surf for travel purposes.

Derp! Had Aqua Tail confused with the Water version of Quick Attack. I wasn't high enough level to use Aqua Tail until just now. Dropped Razor Shell for it.

You put surf on a HM slave then. You're asking for advice here, and you got it. Surf runs off special attack whereas Aqua Tail/Razor shell use physical attack so they are stronger.
