Jessie's Seviper (Japanese: ムサシのハブネーク Musashi's Habunake) was the first Pokémon caught by Jessie of Team Rocket during her travels through Hoenn, presumably as a replacement for her recently released Arbok. Its voice actress in Japanese is 佐藤智恵 Chie Satō, and its English voice actors are Michael Sinterniklaas (Template:4Kids dub) and Bill Rogers (TPCi dub). In the Template:4Kids English dub, some of the noises made by Satō are retained along with Sinterniklaas's voice. When TPCi took over the dub, they stopped retaining Satō's voice. In Tears For Fears!, its Japanese voice could be heard during the brawls with Zangoose.

History

Jessie caught Seviper in A Tail with a Twist after initially being impressed with its sneaky and aggressive demeanor. It had defeated Ash's Treecko earlier in the episode, which is why Jessie wanted it so much. Although Seviper was intelligent, and outsmarted Team Rocket's multiple attempts to ensure its capture, Jessie caught Seviper after it had bitten off a chunk of her hair, mangling poor Seviper with her "Fury Swipes" and "Mega Kick".

Seviper is Jessie's primary battling Pokémon, often seen battling alongside James's Cacnea in Hoenn and later James's Carnivine in Sinnoh. While shown to be fairly powerful before being caught by Jessie, after it fell into her command, it suffered the inevitable fate that all Team Rocket Pokémon face- defeat by Ash or another good character. In the episode Zig Zag Zangoose, Jessie and Seviper were determined to win a battle against Seviper's mortal enemy, a Zangoose belonging to the trainer Nicolai. She also entered it into a contest one time, but it failed miserably when Jessie told it to use attacks Seviper can't learn (such as Blaze Kick). We then see her apologizing to it, meaning she does care about Seviper.

It is also used as Team Rocket's escapist rogue to blanket the area in Haze, replacing James's Weezing's duty to steal innocent Pokémon under the shrouded premises.

Trivia

  • In DP023, Professor Oak's lecture is about Jessie's Seviper. He writes this Pokémon senryū about it: あかいキバ わわるとアブネー ハブネーク The red fangs, it's dangerous to touch them; Habunake.
  • In Jessie's first encounter with Seviper, she was taller than Seviper. However, in recent episodes, Seviper is much taller than her.
  • Seviper also makes a second, low sound which sounds like purring. It usually does this when searching or surprised.
  • Like its trainer, Seviper is "bossy", as shown in Zig Zag Zangoose! when James insulted it and it hissed at him, in which James got scared and bowed to Seviper instead. It also hissed at Meowth when he called it a big overgrown Caterpie and slapped him with its tail.
