PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Waterfall benefits from STAB and is the superior choice for offense.
  • Fury Cutter is great for its energy gains, which lets it trail right behind even without STAB. 
  • Hydro Pump hits hard and fast with STAB and is the superior choice. 
  • Megahorn could pair with Fury Cutter to fulfill a Bug-type role, but this isn't the best use of Samurott.
  • Blizzard is a good 1-bar move, but lacking STAB makes it an inferior option. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Waterfall is the best fast move on defense due to its high base power.
  • Don't use Fury Cutter for defense. 
  • Hydro Pump doesn't provide any additional coverage, but is the hardest to dodge and also hits the hardest with STAB.
  • Blizzard is the next best choice for gym defense and also provides wide coverage. 
  • Megahorn is pretty bad in comparison as a 1-bar move. 

PVE Overview

Samurott is the Water-type starter of Gen 5, which means it's destined to receive a future Community Day move if Niantic continues its trend. While its performance with Hydro Cannon will be very similar to Swampert, at this point of the game that's a bit too late to get hyped about since many people already have superior Water Pokemon like Kyogre and Kingler. It'll still be a good option for PokeDraft or if you don't have a good Water-type team, but it won't be making any big waves like Kyogre.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Fury Cutter or Waterfall + Megahorn and Hydro Pump or Blizzard

Samurott's charge moves are all very costly to use, which makes Fury Cutter more preferable for its faster energy generation. Waterfall can be effective when shields are in play due to its high STAB damage output, but will decrease any chances of using charge moves. 

Megahorn is the cheapest charge move energy-wise, in addition to providing coverage against Samurott's weakness to Grass Pokemon. Hydro Pump and Blizzard demand an insane 75 energy cost each, which limits their usability. The former hits hard with STAB, while the latter provides wider coverage.
