Tricks to Defeat Samurott

Samurott is the final evolution of the fifth generation Water-type Pokemon, Oshawott. Therefore, it is Water Typealthough this specimen also has Teratipo Bicho.

That means it’s weak against pokemon or moves from Fire, Rock and Flying typesalthough taking into account that before the teracrystallization it will use water movements, it is better not to carry one of fire.

What Oshawott doesn’t have are ice moves, so Pokemon from Dragon type are also recommended. Some good counters to beat Samurott are:

  • Salamance
  • Corviknight
  • Azulmarill
  • Cloyster
  • Koraidon
