    What stat or type changes would you make to some Pokemon to make them more usable?

    Personally, I'd change the Unova starters like this:


    Add to level up movepool:
    Bulk Up
    Brick Break
    Smack Down
    Fire Punch

    When I saw Emboar, I expected a very VERY hard-hitting fire type with respectable defense and good HP. Instead, we got a Pikachu-frail low-speed Fighting-Fire type that gets outclassed by Darmanitan and many other Pokemon.
    Had they made him just a tad big bulkier, faster, and even more of a hard hitter, it could've been the fighting-fire type that breaks the chain of fire-fighting types being strong, fast, but frail.

    Samurott --> Change to Water/Fighting

    Add to movepool:
    Ice Fang
    Cross Chop
    Close Combat
    Shell Smash

    Seriously what the heck, Gamefreak? Why do you guys make a Pokemon themed on samurai NOT be part fighting type? and why is it more oriented to be a Special Attacker when its weapons are talked about so much?
    This is how I believe Samurott should've been.

    New Hidden Ability:
    Swift Swim

    Samurott was never a defensive Pokemon, so why give it an ability that would be better off with a Pokemon with a higher defense?

    Serperior (Change to Grass/Dragon, or keep the same)

    I think Serperior's base stats are fine. Maybe it could use 5 or 10 points more for its offensive stats, but overall I'm happy with its speed and defenses. It's a good Pokemon, it just needs a better movepool when it levels up.

    Add to level-up move-set:
    Calm Mind
    Solar Beam
    Energy Ball
    Seed Bomb

    Anyways, these are the changes I'd make to these Pokemon if I could. What do you guys think? Too overpowered? Too nerfed? What kind of changes would you make to a Pokemon?

          I'm not going to really go into specifics, but I'll list some off the top of my head.

          For Meganium to have more offensive moves
          For Articuno to be able to learn Water Pulse, again
          For Delcatty to have more stats all-around or at least concentrated on Atk/SpAtk/Spe

          I'm sure I'll think of some later on ^^;
