Serperior (Japanese: ジャローダ Jarooda) is the Grass-type Starter Pokémon of the Unova region, introduced in Generation V. It is classified as the Regal Pokémon. It has the ability Overgrow. It is the final form of Snivy, one of the three Unova starters.

Biology

Physiology

Serperior is a very large reptilian snake-like Pokémon. It has a white neck and face with a pointy snout, with pale-green designs on the top of its head with two yellow leaf-like extensions on the back of its head. Its eyes are bright red and fierce-looking, despite its regal, stoical demeanor. It has a dark green body with a pale-green underside with two, swirly yellow designs on it. The small wing-like protrusion from its previous form is now its collar being curled and leaf-like, being green on the exterior and yellow in the interior. It has two green small, stubby hands with no fingers. It now completely lacks any legs and now must slither about due to its new, serpentine form, despite having the "tiny leaves" as arms. Its red eyes are also relatively small in comparison with Snivy's. Its long, green tail has three small green leaves sprouting from it.

Special Abilities

Serperior can severely intimidate and completely stop an opponent's movements simply by glaring at them. Like its pre-evolutions, it uses photosynthesis to boost its energy.

Behavior

Serperior is a very regal, self-confident Pokémon that is not easily intimidated. It will only use all of its strength if its opponent is not fazed by its fierce and noble glare.

Habitat

Serperior are very rare in the wild, but live in densely forested areas.

Evolution

Serperior evolves from Servine at level 36. It is the final evolved form of Snivy.

Appearances

Anime

Main articles: Trip's Serperior, Mako's Serperior, and Rosa's Serperior

Serperior first appeared in anime under the ownership of Trip which evolved from his Servine. It was Trip's starter.

Other

A female Serperior appears as the keeper of the Arbor Area in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, where she is a Queen and has a daughter, Princess Snivy.

Trivia

  • Serperior is the second Pokémon to have its name based on the word "superior," with the first being Rhyperior.
  • Serperior is based on western culture (royalty), whereas Samurott and Emboar are based on Japanese and Chinese culture, respectively.
  • Unlike other snake-based Pokémon such as Arbok and Seviper, Serperior is not even part Poison-type. This may be a reference to the fact that many snakes are in fact non-venomous.
  • Despite being the final stage in a 3-Pokémon evolutionary chain and having a base stat total of 528, Serperior still has the same Special Attack stat as an Oddish (and the same Attack stat as a Bellsprout).
  • Serperior is the second tallest Pokémon in Generation V, shorter than both Black Kyurem and losing to White Kyurem by about 2 feet altogether, (Black= 11 feet, white= 12 feet).
  • Serperior is very different from its first evolution, Snivy. Its appearance changed dramatically.
  • Serperior got a diverse learnset in Pokémon Black Version 2 and White Version 2 with moves such as Aqua Tail and Dragon Pulse.
  • Serperior is known to be a queen or king because it is the Regal Pokémon. 
  • Serperior is the tallest final evolution of a starter.
  • Serperior is the only Generation V starter Pokémon that was based on a reptile (snake), while Emboar and Samurott were based on mammals (wild boar and sea otter respectively).
  • Despite being said to lose its arms over evolution, if closely looked at its back sprite, one can see two tiny leaves that represent arms.
  • It is by far the only starter Pokémon without limbs.
    • Primarina, being based on a mermaid, which also lacks legs, however.

Origin

Like its pre-evolutions, Serperior is based on the green vine snake. It may also incorporate features of European royalty as well as emperors of ancient China and Japan. The fact that it loses its limbs upon evolving is based on the scientific theory that snakes descended from four-limbed reptiles that lost their legs. The mentions of how it freezes its opponents with a gaze is similar to a Basilisk, a mythological 'king of serpents' who could kill or petrify anyone who looked it in the eye. Its great size and power may also be a reference to the giant prehistoric snake Titanoboa.

Etymology

Serperior's English name is a combination of the words "serpent" and "superior." It may also incorporate "emperor".
