Seviper (Japanese: ハブネーク Habunake) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon. It is well-known for its ongoing feud against Zangoose.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Seviper are fairly large snake Pokémon that are usually depicted scrunched up like an accordion. They are mostly black in color, but have several markings on their body. Seviper have yellow hexagon markings that run from their head to their tail, small yellow bumps where they touch the ground (this is presumably to help with movement) and various purple scar-like marks. Seviper has several different weapons it can use in battle, such as elongated red fangs that protrude from the mouth and a partially red-colored, bladelike tail that it can use to stab or swipe. Seviper also have fierce red eyes that make it able to use attacks like Glare.

It is theorized whether Seviper are distant relatives of the Ekans line, considering they are both snake Pokémon, can breed together and have similar behavioral patterns.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Seviper can create a horrible poison that it can channel through either the tail or fangs, quickly dispatching prey.

Seviper is the only known Pokémon that learns Poison Tail through leveling up.

Behavior

Seviper are bitter enemies with Zangoose, willing to battle them to the bitter end. It is suggested that this feud has lasted for quite some time. It sharpens its swordlike tail on hard rocks for battle, and may hide in tall grass and strike unwary prey with its venomous fangs.

Habitat

They live on places such as plains and forest to search for prey.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Seviper is a carnivore, hiding in tall grass and striking unawary prey with its venomous fangs.

Major appearances

Jessie's Seviper

Seviper first appeared in A Tail with a Twist. Jessie was so impressed by how it beat up Ash's Treecko, that she just had to capture it. After it bit off a chunk of her hair accidentally, she beat it up with her own two hands. She then captured it in a Poké Ball.

Pike Queen Lucy's Seviper

The Battle Pike Queen Lucy owns a Seviper. She used it to fight off Team Rocket and to battle Ash's Donphan in Queen of the Serpentine.

Other

In Tears for Fears, the rivalry between both Seviper and Zangoose was highlighted upon a couple of times during the episode. Jessie's Seviper had picked up on the three other Zangoose that were making their way towards the team. It had immediately reacted and proceeded to do battle with them. Once learning of the fact that they would be fighting till the death, Jessie had tried to recall Seviper several times, though each time, Seviper would break back out of its Poké Ball to continue fighting.

Minor appearances

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
AG008 Seviper Ash's Pokédex Seviper, the Fang Snake Pokémon. Seviper is known for its angry disposition, immobilizing its opponents by wrapping its body around them.
AG048 Seviper Nicholai's Pokédex Seviper, the Fang Snake Pokémon. Seviper shares a generations-long fued with Zangoose. Its sword-like tail can slash foes and douse them with poison.
This concludes the entries from the Advanced Generation series.

In the manga

A wild Seviper attacked Ruby and Sapphire after the latter took him to her Secret Base. Her Torchic was able to put it down for the time being with its Ember barrage, but it rose back up after Sapphire fainted from an earlier wound. Ruby, seeing that there was no one around to see him fight, knocked it out cold before leaving Sapphire a letter and a change of clothes.

Another Seviper appeared in the wild in Volume 17, where it broke Ruby's Poké Balls in unison with a wild Zangoose. The then-uncaptured Mimi was able to take them both out, resulting in it being forced into his team (which provided a sharp contrast between the well-groomed Nana and Coco, and Zuzu and itself).

As in the games, the Pike Queen Lucy uses a Seviper as her main Pokémon, which was able to defeat two rental Pokémon in an exhibition match, and later fought Emerald before losing.

Trivia

  • In the most infamous Pokémon Trainer's Choice, Seviper was incorrectly claimed to be an evolution of Arbok.
  • Although it is stated that Seviper and Zangoose are bitter enemies, they share several characteristics, such as being in the Ground egg group, residing in the same Friend Area, and having a base stat total of 458 (which is unique to only them).
  • Seviper is the only pure Template:Type2 to not have an evolutionary relative, and one of two Poison-types in total to not have an evolutionary relative (Qwilfish is the other).
  • Seviper is one of the three Poison-types in the Dragon-egg group, the other two being Ekans and its evolution Arbok, all based on snakes.
  • Seviper is mentioned in every single one of Zangoose's Pokédex entries. However, Seviper's Pokédex entries fail to mention Zangoose in both FireRed and LeafGreen.
  • The pattern on the Luck Symbol seems to be based on Seviper's diamond patterns.
  • Seviper is one of three Pokémon to learn every offensive tail-based move, learning Poison Tail, Aqua Tail, Dragon Tail and Iron Tail by level-up, move tutor, and TMs respectively.
  • As of Generation V, Seviper is the only black Template:Type2 Pokémon.

Origin

Seviper is based on a viper; specifically, the habu, a type of venomous snake that was often pitted against mongooses in roadside shows. This practice is now considered inhumane and is rarely seen today. Aside from its scars, the shape of its color pattern resembles that of the Sakishima habu. The rivalry it shares with Zangoose is based on the relationship between mongeese and snakes.

Name origin

Seviper's name is a combination of sever and viper. It may also be a combination of severe and viper.

Habunake is a combination of 波布 habu and English snake.
