Servine (Japanese: ジャノビー Janovy) is a Grass-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Snivy starting at level 17 and evolves into Serperior starting at level 36.

Biology

Servine is a slim bipedal Pokémon that is primarily green with a cream underside, and narrow red eyes. It has a yellow V-shaped structure that starts at the chest and extends behind the shoulders. Servine has short limbs and a small crest protruding from the back of its head. Three palmate leaves grow along its back and tail. These leaves are capable of performing photosynthesis, but only while they are clean. Servine will go to great lengths to stay dirt-free for this reason. This swift Pokémon hides in thick foliage or shadows to avoid attacks before retaliating.

Trivia

Origin

Servine may be based on a variety of green vine snake species with a pointed snout, including Oxybelis fulgidus, Ahaetulla nasuta, and Ahaetulla prasina. Servine's color scheme is similar to its species' possible namesake, the grass snake. The Pokémon's combination of snake- and lizard-like features is also similar to that of the Florida sand skink, a serpentine lizard with small, stubby legs. The shape of its head, body, and crest may be based on the bird of paradise or false bird of paradise flowers. Ken Sugimori has said that Snivy, Servine, and Serperior are based on French royalty, specifically mentioning the anime The Rose of Versailles as inspiration. Servine's physical features resemble the acanthus leaf motifs popularized during the Renaissance.

Name origin

Servine is a combination of serpent and vine.

Janovy may be a combination of 蛇 ja (snake) and canopy or ivy.
