About Seadra
Its body bristles with sharp spikes. Carelessly trying to touch it could cause fainting from the spikes. It is capable of swimming backwards by rapidly flapping its winglike pectoral fins and stout tail. Seadra sleeps after wriggling itself between the branches of coral. Seadra generates whirlpools by spinning its body. The whirlpools are strong enough to swallow even fishing boats.

Stats
HP - 55
Attack - 65
Defense - 95
Sp. Atk - 95
Sp. Def- 45
Speed - 85

Abilities
Poison Point: The opponent has a 30% chance of being induced with Poison when using an attack, that requires physical contact, against this Pokémon.
Sniper: Power of critical-hit moves is increased to 225% rather than 150%.
Hidden Ability (Available):
Damp: Explosion and Selfdestruct will not work while the Pokémon is on the field.

Seadra in competitive battling
In competitive play Seadra is generally outclassed by its Evolution, Kingra so you wont see this little sea horse in many OU matches. Seadra is in the NU tier and even there it struggles. The biggest issues for Seadra is its poor special defence and lack of reliable recovery outside of rest. While it foes gain access to Eviolite to boost its base defence to an impressive 142 its still outclassed by the likes of Lapras whom has more bulk and reliable recovary, Lanturn who has switch initiative in volt switch and well as good bulk and Quagsire whom all do a better job of taking hits. Even as an offensive pokemon its limited in its tier, having to compete with Poliwrath and Barbaracle. Its only real niche is in its ability to pull up a sub and disabling the moves used to break through. Even the ability Sniper, which makes its Evolution so usable can't be taken advantage of as you have to forgo the defence boost for the scope lens.

Example Sets

SubDisable
Item: Eviolte
Ability: Poison Point
Nature: Timid
Evs: 4Def/252SpA/252Spd
Disable
Substitute
Hydro pump/Scald
Ice beam

The idea with this set is to get behind a sub with your ok speed and disable your foes strongest move before working on wearing them down. Its defence means it can take a number of hits on the physical side and means it can easily disable there stab. It can also be used to break down walls by disabling there recovery or only offensive move while your sub protects you from status.
Hydro pump gives you a move to put a dent into pokemon, while scald offers you more reliability and the chance of a burn.
Ice beam helps you cover grass and dragon types.
Poison point is the preferred ability as your only wanting to take physical attacks and negates leftovers.
If you want to opt for more offense you could drop Sub for Hp Grass, however you would lose the ability to dodge status and stray hits.
Protect could be used over Sub as you wont lose 25% of your hp and works similarly, however walls would have an easier time as they can status you and simply out stall you.

I'm aware, just changed it from "POKEMON OF THE MONTH AUGEST 2015" to "Pokemon of the Month - August 2015 - Seadra". You're out of control XD. Good to see you back and posting, by the way.

Yes, yes, two years, Pokemon, mushy feels, now Dialga I want you to wipe the dust off your DS and battle.

It's been a while since I saw a dragon type ever since XY, aside from Goodra. But that thing isn't a dragon type.

Really? I've only battled you twice! And it was due to a rematch after you beat me in your dragon gym XD


I always laugh when I think about the last battle we had.
