PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Vine Whip + Frenzy Plant* and Aerial Ace or Leaf Tornado

Vine Whip is the superior pick due to significantly better energy gains along with STAB.

Frenzy Plant is Serperior's strongest move in a vacuum, as well as in practice. Aerial Ace provides good coverage against other Grass and common Fighting-types, but is generally a weak move. Leaf Tornado is a bad move from a damage perspective, but if you're willing to forgo Aerial Ace's coverage, it can be worth throwing out to fish for debuffs. Grass Knot can technically be run, but it's a significant downgrade over Frenzy Plant.

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 3 / 5

While Serperior isn't a "bad" Pokemon in the Great League, it really doesn't hold much of a niche. While it's pretty bulky (on par with Meganium), less valuable secondary coverage makes it a significantly less exciting choice. If you just need a Frenzy Plant user, Serperior could certainly be worse, but it shouldn't be your go-to option.

Ultra League: 2.5 / 5

Much like in Great League, Serperior is a bulky Vine Whip/Frenzy Plant user. Also like in Great League, its mediocre secondary coverage leaves it a subpar option. It's also incredibly expensive, needing to go up to Level 50 to function at its full potential. Consider whether or not it's a worthwhile investment for you.

 Master League: 0 / 5

Poor little snake just doesn't stand a chance against those Steel and Dragon-types....
