So you're saying that Serperior can be beat bad nu players like someone who switches a Pyroar against a water type? That pokemon would have won the game.
Ok, which HP is the best, there are no movesets posted for a 6th gen Serperior with contrary on Serebii. I currently have one with HP Fighting, to counter Heatran and Lucario M and Ice types but that is about it. Any HP suggestions, so far HP Rock, HP Ice, and HP Fire sound well.
Rock,Ground and fire are generally the best ones, Ice doesn't really do ya any good.
So no on HP fighting then
OK, so is it affirmed that HP Ice is no good, my female snivy (mimicking PokePark)has hp ice right when it was said hp ice is no good, I know it is good against Altaria M that is immune to Dragon Pulse.
On the downside, it doesn't even come close to KOing talonflame and does less damage to pure dragon types (goodra) than dragon pulse would.
So since I know Heatran will most likely switch in what would be a good partner for Serperior HP Ground? Lucario. Discuss partners please!On the downside, it doesn't even come close to KOing talonflame and does less damage to pure dragon types (goodra) than dragon pulse would.
To be fair though, it has to catch Talonflame on the switch so more often than not it'll find itself switching out against Talonflame... though Stealth Rock goes a long way towards helping that problem, of course.
Serperior's always going to be walled by SOMETHING no matter what Hidden Power it packs. Without HP Ground, Heatran gives it problems. Without HP Fire, it has trouble with most steel types, most notably Scizor and Ferrothorn. HP Rock can act as a lure for Talonflame, and also works decently well against MegaZard Y and certain other flying types. In lower tiers, such as RU, HP Fire is what you'll see most of the time, though.

Since serperior is easily walled by a steel type depending on the HP it runs (skarmory/scizor if not fire, heatran if not ground), it's partners can be put into two categories: those who can baton pass it boosts to K/O or survive attacks from those pokemon, and those who can effectively eliminate birds/steel types. For me, magnezone is one of its greatest partners as it can trap/OHKO most steels that wall serperior (heatran being an exception) and can pick off most bird pokemon with thunderbolt.
The only issue here is that scizor can U-turn out predicting the switch-in so magnezone isn't perfect for that...also, T-flame will outspeed unless scarf timid I believe...if scarf though, you can be locked into an electric to allow a ground type to come in a set up...either way, I still see HP fire as the best choice since it covers most of serp's resistances...all you need is something for heatran and common OU flyers like Mega zard Y...something like bulky tar should do the trick...I think...
Kinda. While t-tar could be good the idea of having serperior being constantly pelted by sand for 5 turns wouldn't be that good, as I'm pretty sure it's KO'd by non-STAB 100-spatk ice beams once it hits around 80% health. Rotom-W could be another interesting teammate, as it's one of the few pokemon able to kill all of heatran/scizor/talonflame without having to use hidden power.
What about rotom H? I know bringing up a UU (or is it RU?) mon to OU is weird but it deals with all those guys as well...basic bulky support set with WoW, t-bolt, overheat, volt switch/ protect...
