    I can't wait for Contrary Serperior... he has the potential to be a monster... he has great bulk (75/95/95 is pretty nice) as for his measly offense... those Leaf Storms add up quick...

    And Dragon Pulse/HP Fire give him near perfect coverage... and he could even make use of Gastro Acid to screw other mon's who are dependent on their abilities... he could be an excellent Rain/Sandstorm counter...

    as for items? Leftovers seems the best choice imo...

    Isn't that a problem all sweepers have?

    Grass is terrible coverage on it's own. It might be best to handle any speed boosted pokemon before you try and sweep.

    Grass isn't so bad... he get's to inflict SE damage against Terrakion and Starmie...

    plus not many mon's would want to switch ointo a boosted Serperior... Ferrothorn and Skamory hate HP Fire... and even Dragonite will dislike coming into a boosted Dragon Pulse. Blissey will be a pain though...

    You didn't really follow the whole conversation or not.

    It was about if Serperior would be better with a scarf, and I was arguing that it'd want to be able to swap to it's coverage moves, just because Leaf Storm is resisted by a lot of the metagame.

    I think a choice item is terrible for Serperior... he's already insanely fast so a choice scarf seems redundant... Leftovers work better... he get's recovery and isn't stuck by one move...

    I'm still waiting for that Contrary ability Snivy. When it uses Leaf Storm it's Special Attack is going UP not DOWN!

    I'm thinking life orb has got to be better than scarf. It means you can leaf storm the switch and then hit the counter with a +2 coverage move. Yes, you will run in to faster stuff but every sweeper has that problem.

I doubt UU can take that much of Serp. Serp is kinda in an awkward position, since it lacks the coverage to do much lol. Also, SubSeed... I dunno, isn't Whimiscott better at that job?

    Also, slapping scarf on Serp is just begging for dragon/steel to switch in.
    I meant to respond to this earlier, but supposedly, Serperior is the better sub seed. Mostly because that's not it's primary job; It's job is to sweep with Leaf Storm and Dragon Pulse. The sub seeding part is just to help it get past it's usual walls. Besides that, Substitute is also a great way to get past revenge killers if you can set it up.

    Contary serperior and reckless emboar. Serperiornwould probably go to OU or at the least BL. Emboar would probably be sent to UU at least. I'm not too excited about shadow tag chandelure because it will very likely go straight to ubers.

    I'm looking forward to Contrary Serperior and Lightningrod Zapdos. Zapdos is an Electric-type and one of my favorite legendary Pokemon, I'm eagerly awaiting the release of its DW team. Contrary Serperior needs no explaining, with Dragon Pulse, Hidden Power, and Leaf Storm it would do insanely well for itself. Not to mention it's a fast and tanky Pokemon.

    It was a one-time event pokemon. I don't think it is still around anymore so you will have to go looking for one over Wi-Fi or hack it in yourself.
    This is why I hate these kind of events :sweat:
    Current IV hunt:
    - Perfect IV w/ Anticipation. Current progress: 31/31/31/??/31/31 IV w/ Anticipation.

    Previous hunts:
    - 31/31/31/??/31/31 IV w/ Huge Power and Adamant Nature.
