Servine (Japanese: ジャノビー Janobii) is the Grass-type Starter Pokémon of the Unova region, introduced in Generation V. It is the Grass Snake Pokémon, and is the evolved form of Snivy.


Servine's small leaf-like hands by its cream colored underside have shrunk because it is on its way to becoming more of a serpent—Serperior. It has large red eyes and a yellow collar that is larger than Snivy's but smaller than Serperior's. It also has a tuft of a leaf atop its head and has gained two leaves on top of its tail. Its legs have also shrunk since it evolved.

In the Anime

A Servine appeared in BW004, it was battling a Dewott that it defeated despite the type advantage. Another Servine appears in BW010 under the control of Ash's rival, Trip. It defeated Ash's Pikachu but was infatuated and defeated by Ash's Snivy.

In Pokemon Adventures

Servine was sent out by N to fight Gigi, who defeated it with much delight. When White attempted to escape from N by falling from the ferris wheel in Nimbasa City, the Servine stays by her side.


Servine evolves from Snivy at level 17 and evolves into Serperior at level 36.

They avoid attacks by sinking into the shadows of thick foliage. They retaliate with masterful whipping techniques.

  • Servine's Japanese name may come from 蛇 (jan) meaning snake, and canopy.
  • Servine's name is derived from the words "serpent" and "vine".
  • Servine slightly resembles a lizard.
  • Out of all the Generation V second evolution starters, Servine is the fastest.
  • Despite having arms at its first evolution, the arms become shorter and stubbier and it'll completely lose its legs at its final evolution, Serperior.
  • In PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, Servine appears in the Cove Town as one of the trainers. After Snivy defeats her in battle, she becomes Snivy's teacher.
