Samurott vs Hisuian Samurott: Which is better in Pokemon GO?

Hisuian Samurott does not have its Community Day Move yet. But, if this creature gets one, it's most likely going to be Hydro Cannon. This creature's dual elemental typing of Water and Dark makes it weak to a lot of core-breaking entities.

Once it gets Hydro Cannon, Hisuian Samurott will likely be able to blow a lot of the competition out of the water. Till then, the regular variant of Samurott will reign supreme in Pokemon GO.
