Samurott (F) @ Salac Berry
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Surf/Scald/Hydro Pump
- Ice Beam
- Grass Knot
- Substitute

Whenever I use the standard special Samurott set (which is the one with LO), I find Alomomola as a huge problem. The new addition I added to the set to somehow "counter" Alomomola is Substitute.When I use Samurott and predict an Alomomola switch-in, I usually go to sub. Since Substitute blocks Toxic, Alomomola can't cripple Samurott. So Samurott can continue spamming Grass Knot. Salac Berry is the item I use because when salac activates, torrent is also activated allowing Samurott to sweep through weakened teams. Surf, Scald and Hydro Pump for STAB options but I prefer Surf/Scald more. Ice Beam is filler. Grass Knot is for Seismitoad and Alomomola. Modest for power, standard evs spread focusing on Special Attack and Speed.

have you tried taunt? it would achieve the same + alomo can't use whish. and sawk will outspeed you even with salac boost

Taunt doesn't reliably let you activate Salac though, and Sub gives a buffer when sweeping through teams and you come across say a Skuntank or something. Both moves have their own merit and they should probably be slashed together :p

Sub also means being slower than Sawk isn't as big a deal anyway

sub removes the need for outpacing a threat as you trade a sub for a hit, i approve of this set

Yup Taunt also shuts Alomomola down but Samurott can hit some faster threats because of the presence of Substitute. Aside from Alomomola it can also counter other walls like Audino (since it usually runs a Wish, Protect, Heal Bell, Thunderwave/Toxic moveset) and Lickilicky (since Samurott can take about 2 Body Slams before the sub breaks)
