le quant-à-soi
As it stands, you already have three physical Pokemon (and 1 mixed) so I would go with either a mixed Samurott or a special Samurott. You can either run the special set that you have listed (Surf / Ice Beam / Grass Knot / Air Slash) or run a mixed set with X-Scissor > Grass Knot or Air Slash to cover the plethora of Psychic- and Dark-types in Unova, and accordingly run a nature such as Rash (+SpA/-SpD) or Mild (+SpA/-Def).

There's no point running Chlorophyll on Leavanny without having Sunny Day on your team, so you'd want to go with either Swarm or Overcoat (DW) as Leavanny's ability. Since you're already boosting your Attack with Swords Dance, you can run a Jolly nature instead, to help out with your speed.

You probably should use a Special Samurott. If you do decide to use a Physical Samurott you should replace Razor Shell with Waterfall. It has +10 Base Power an you will need to use it sometimes. Razor Shell does have a chance to lower Defense, but that's what Swords Dance is for.

Edit: Sorry for the double post. Can't figure out how to delte it.
