Death Battle!: Death Battle! Greninja vs Samurott

by Mewtwofan259

Mewtwofan259 It's ninja vs samurai on this episode of Death Battle! (All information comes from Bulbapedia.com)
Me: When it comes to people with swords, the first people I think of, are knights.
Pain: I think of Gladiators. But you're here to see Ninja vs Samurai. We have Greninja the Ninja.
Me: And Samurott the Samurai.
Pain: He's Mewtwofan and I'm Lord of Pain!
Me: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills to find out who would win, a Death Battle.

Pain: Greninja is a large, bipedal, frog-like Pokémon. Its body and legs are dark blue, with single large white bubbles on its legs and arms and white spots over its eyes.
Me: On the sides of each of its upper thighs is a light blue, four-pointed star, which resembles a shuriken. Its back feet have two toes, while its front feet have three toes.
Pain: Its feet are webbed, and it has a yellow chest and a yellow-and-blue face. It has eyes with white sclera, red irises, and white pupils.
Me: A large, projecting dark blue stripe runs down the middle of its head, with projecting light blue stripes in between its large, yellow ears.
Pain: Its mouth is hidden behind a large, pink tongue that wraps around Greninja's neck and extends outward behind its head. It doesn't make sense, but we've just learned to roll with it.
Me: Greninja moves with the speed and grace of a ninja, using swift movements to confuse its enemies while it slices them up with throwing stars made of compressed water; these throwing stars are sharp enough to split metal.
Pain: Greninja is the only known Pokemon capable of learning Mat Block. Which will not be included in it's moveset. Instead, his moveset is Grass Knot, Scald, Dark Pulse, and his own multi-hitting other signature, Water Shuriken.
Me: Now, let's look at his ability. Torrent powers up the Pokémon's Water type moves when their low on health.
Pain: Now, let's take a good look at his stats. 72 in HP, 95 in Attack, 67 in Defense, 103 in Sp. Attack, 71 in Sp. Defense, and 113 in Speed.
Me: Overall, Greninja's overated. (Come at me, internet.) But he's overated for all the right reasons, but he's overated for all the right reasons.
Pain: Also, Ash-Greninja. Don't know why, just Ash-Greninja.
(Greninja makes his cry)

Me: Samurott is a quadruped, blue, sea lion-like Pokémon. It has two pairs of pointed teeth, one in the upper jaw and one in the lower. Long, white whiskers extend from its snout and head, and it has a red nose and eyes.
Pain: On the back of its head is a large, rounded beige helmet-like shell with spikes and a spear-like, pointed protrusion in the front.
Me: A dull bluish gray seashell-like carapace covers its underbelly, and its limbs are covered with beige, sectioned bracer-like coverings, that appear to be comprised of seashells. The forelimbs' bracers are actually swords called seamiters.
Pain: The lower two segments of these bracers are the scabbards for the two swords, and the upper segment and spike make up the seamitar and its handle. Samurott possess three black digits on each limb, and a fin-like, splayed tail with the innermost section being beige.
Me: When in battle, Samurott can stand on its hind legs and use one of its blades as a sword to fight. In the time it takes a foe to blink, it can draw and sheathe the seamitars attached to its front legs.
Pain: One swing of its seamitar can beat opponents. It can silence foes with a glare or a howl.
Me: It has the moves, Rasor Shell, Waterfall, Ice Beam, and also Grass Knot.
Pain: Speaking of simalarities, Samurott also has the ability Torrent. But unlike Greninja, Samurott is really underated.
Me: I've certainly trained a few in my day, and I was not disappointed.
Pain: But sorry if this might be short. Well, Samurott has the longest cry of any starter. Roll the tape!
(Samurott makes it's cry)

Me: Alright, the combatants are set. Let's end this debate once and for all!
Pain: It's time for a Death Battle!

(Azure Bay, a place for water Pokémon of all kinds. A water frog is on one of the islands.)
(Greninja is balancing on one foot, Meditating)
(Samurott is rushing through the water, he crashes and collapses onto the island, disrupting Greninja)
Greninja: You dare disrupt me... Fine, I accept your challenge.
(Greninja takes out 2 Water Shurikens while Samurott stands back up)
(Greninja throws his 2 Water Shurikens, before summoning 2 more and throwing them)
(The first three hit Samurott, but he pulls out his Rasor Shell and cuts through the 4th One)
(Hit 3 times!)
(Samurott uses the Rasor Shell to slice Greninja)
(Greninja is barley fazed, he rebounds with a Dark Pulse)
(Samurott is knocked into a tree that is on the Island, but he pulls a vine off of the tree)
Samurott: Wake up and smell the roses.
(He slashes Greninja across the face with the Grass Knot, which is covered in spiky roses)
(Greninja is knocked a couple feet and hits the ground with a thud)
(Greninja gets back up, more angry then hurt, and pulls out his own Grass Knot and whips Samurott)
(Samurott growls and uses Ice Beam, which hits Greninja square in the forehead)
(Greninja steps back a little bit, but he quickly fires a Scald, which knocks Samurott into the water)
(Samurott doesn't come up, so Greninja does his victory dance and turns into Ash-Greninja)
(Samurott uses a Waterfall to get back up, then uses it to knock Ash-Greninja onto his knees)
(Ash-Greninja turns back into regular Greninja and uses Dark Pulse, which just stuns Samurott)
(Samurott uses Ice Beam, which makes Greninja lose his balance, but he does a quick flip to get back on his feet and summon 2 Water Shurikens)
(Greninja launches the 2 Water Shurikens, they both hit. He summons 2 more, both of those hit. Greninja summons 1 final powerful Water Shuriken and it hits Samurott in the cheek, knocking him into the tree)
(The tree collapses into the water, but Samurott grabs a knot from it and tosses it at Greninja, it hits him in the neck, which causes Greninja to yelp)
(Greninja uses Scald, which just knocks Samurott to the side)
(Samurott grins and uses Rasor Shell, which doesn't make Greninja feel any better)
(Greninja gets a bolt of Determination, and summons a Grass Knot)
(Greninja hits Samurott so hard with it, there's a huge cut along his chest)
(Samurott falls to his knees, and sends a Waterfall towards Greninja.)
(It's not very powerful, it skims right past his feet)
(Greninja summons a single Water Shuriken, to slit Samurott's neck with it)
(Greninja lets his guard down for a single second, this is all Samurott needs)
(Samurott draws his sheathes and stabs them through Greninja)
(Greninja falls backwards into the water, the waves turning red with blood)

Pain: WHAT?! We didn't discuss that!
Me: Let me explain. We forgot to discuss Samurott's stats, but their about equal to Greninja. But it was not the stats that determined this, or even the attacks, it was the Pokedex entry.
Pain: I understand. While Greninja's Shurikens can cut steel, they're made of water. Water can only work like that if there's a concentrated beam. But Samurott can draw and attack with his sheathes that can "Beat any foe."
Me: The time it takes to blink is between 1/4 to 1/3 seconds, but it's faster if the mind is already alerted to danger. Just like most of Samuotts opponents would be.
Pain: If you think about, this is kind of a stomp in Samurott's favor.
Me: The winner is Samurott.

Next time on Death Battle!
Gen 1 didn't have many electric types...
But the ones we did have were strong...
Zapdos... Jolteon...
But these 2 were certainly unique...
Raichu vs Electrode.

(Also, thanks to my researching partner, @Lord Of Pain and to @Eeveechu151 for suggesting this new layout!)

    Then Pikachu VS Bulbasaur? The first Pokèmon VS the Mascot of Pokèmon. You could also do Pikachu VS Clefairy, as Clefairy was originally planned to be Ash's companion. Another thing about Victini is it was designed to appeal to girls, but for some reason I think most fans of it are boys.

    Next, do Mismagius with Mystical Fires, Shadow Ball, Power Gem, and Psywave against a Victini with Searing Shot, Incinerate, Charge Beam, and Stored Power.
    BTW Greninja will win.
