Why the hate for Serperior?

#1Faust_8Posted 6/10/2013 11:12:03 AM
Second fastest starter, only serpentine starter, only starter that combines speed with bulk, can go either physical or special...

I'm not saying it's the best thing since sliced bread but some people act like it's the worst starter ever released...when really, it's the only Unova starter I'd ever want to use. Samurott just doesn't stand out to me much compared to any other pure Water starter and Emboar DOES have the worst stat distribution of any starter if you ask me (and only naturally learns one crappy Fighting move). Both don't really have anything really unique besides some attacks they can learn, whereas at least Serperior's stat distribution is, in addition to the body shape.

I like Serperior. It's not my favorite starter but it's the one I like most from Unova.

P.S. And this isn't even taking into account Contrary.

OW: That's not my problem. Sucks for whoever I murder, though.

I agree that it's better than the other two, but it's still not very good.

my biggest issue with it tends be low attack stats, and not the greatest move-pool.

even with contrary,

-frail
-limited movepool. it's pretty much leaf storm hp ice sub seed
-grass STAB is meh

better than a lot of starters though like charizard, blastoise, meganium, feraligatr, typhlosion, torterra, samurrot, emboar

idk if it's better or worse than empoleon swampert and sceptile for 5th gen

venusaur infernape blaziken are all easily better though

It's not the worst by any stretch.
Meganium and Emboar are the worst.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.
