Samurott's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
Samurott finds itself in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. With great mixed attacking stats which allows for it to either choose a physical or mixed attacking set, Samurott is certainly a capable offensive threat that is among the tier's best Pokémon. It has a great boosting move in Swords Dance that can take its Attack stat to high levels and allow for it to act as one of the tier's best sweepers. Its typing is solid enough to offer good switch in opportunities, and it has a great priority attack in Aqua Jet to hit faster foes. The best Samurott set is a Swords Dance sweeper set that acts as a powerful threat with boosted Waterfalls and Megahorn to hit Grass-types while having priority Aqua Jet to hit faster foes hard. Samurott can also run a mixed wallbreaker set that hits very hard with Life Orb boosted Hydro Pumps and Ice Beams while having Megahorn to hit Jynx and Ludicolo. However, Samurott suffers in regards to its Speed stat which leads to it being overreliant on Aqua Jet and making it susceptible to being revenge killed. It is also checked by prominent bulky Grass and Water-types like Vileplume and Poliwrath.
Samurott is also a viable option in the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. With great offensive stats and access to a good offensive movepool, Samurott is not a threat to be underestimated. It is capable of trucking through certain Pokémon with its Swords Dance set that can power through certain defensive Pokémon like Tangrowth and Alomomola with a boosted Megahorn or Jellicent with Knock Off while having excellent physical STABs to work with in Waterfall and Aqua Jet. A special attacker set is another route for Samurott to go, as it has great coverage between Hydro Pump, Ice Beam, and Grass Knot. It can also do some stallbreaking thanks to its access to Taunt. It has decent bulk and a good Water-typing, which allows for it to have decent switch in opportunities. However, Samurott is a bit slow for a sweeper, which holds its Swords Dance set from being a dominant force. Samurott also faces competition with its special attacking sets from Clawitzer, which has Mega Launcher to have stronger coverage options, although Samurott has moves like Taunt and Aqua Jet at its disposal and better Speed.
