Feraligatr cries the most


You seriously think Sheer Force is a better ability than Contrary or Shadow Tag?


Is that what is typed?


Contrary is Serperior's Dream World ability, Shadow Tag is Chandelure's. Those two Pokemon could do some serious damage if those abilities were finally released..

Contrary Serp really isn't that powerful. Yes, in theory spamming good attacks while only making them better sounds incredibly, HOWEVER grass type attacks don't cover very much and serperior has a terrible movepool, really only using hidden power and leaf storm. That is not a good combo, and really anything that resists grass or is moderately bulky has an easy time switching in and outspeeding serperior.

Contrary is a great ability, however superior is not the ideal pokemon to use it. Hydreigon comes to mind as what would be the best contrary as it has a wide movepool and draco meteor to boost.

Gatr cries a ton, but IMO Chandelure is the one who wants his DW ability to be released the most. However, as soon as that baby is released it will be banned by most competitive outlets. Gatr probably won't, and can finally laugh in gyrados' face.

My Serperior is a b**** to kill according to the group of players i play with here.

252 Sp.Att
252 Spe

Giga Drain
Hidden Power Ice
Calm Mind
Substitute

lol yes its a Superior Serperior but i love the thing.


Wanna know what's a fun Superior? Dragon Tail, Coil, Rest, Sleep Talk. It's only good for team with Rock/Spike support, but it can do pretty well.


I thought about that but I didn't like how the sleep mechanics are now

I tried a lot of Serperior set, I mean he's only my fav Pokémon :p

The Contrary set works WAY better than anything else. The Calm Mind one is really good too, RestRalk didn't work that well for me :(
