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

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 bladed tail which it can stab or swipe with. 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.

Behavior

Seviper are bitter enemies with Zangoose, willing to battle them to the bitter end. It is suggested that this feud has lasted since the beginning of time.

Habitat

Unknown, though this Pokémon is found on Route 114 and Route 208, which suggests its habitat consists of grassy plains with sparse trees and mountains.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Seviper appears to hunt small rodent, bird, and bug Pokémon.

In the anime

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.

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.

Trivia

  • In the most infamous Pokémon Trainer's Choice, Seviper was incorrectly claimed as an evolution of Arbok.
  • Despite being known as Zangoose's worst enemy, they are both in the Ground egg group, meaning they can breed.
  • The rivalry between Seviper and Zangoose is based on the relationship between the mongoose and the king cobra - the cobra is the largest venomous snake in the world, and the mongoose is one of its few predators.
  • Seviper is the only Pokémon to this date that learns Poison Tail by leveling up - although the Ekans line can learn it by breeding.
  • The markings on the area of Seviper's body directly under its head and on Zangoose's chest resemble and S and an M, relating to the fact that the two were modeled after the mongoose and snake.
