Jessie's Seviper

Seviper in the Anime.

Seviper first appeared in A Tail with a Twist. A Seviper is attacking other Pokémon to steal its food. Soon when the gang has lunch, May's Torchic is attacked by a wild Seviper and also gets its food taken. Ash's Treecko sees it attacking Torchic and tries to help. After Treecko attacked it a few times, the Seviper runs away. Later in the episode Jessie, James and Meowth are having lunch. Once they ran out of food, Jessie gets a secret rice roll she was hiding from James and Meowth and while they where fighting over it, the Seviper steals, and eats it. Jessie gets mad and, when the Seviper bites her hair, Jessie became very angry and attacked it. She almost killed it, but James and Meowth told her to catch it, so she did.

Trivia

  • Zangoose is in every one of Seviper's Pokédex Entries, except FireRed and LeafGreen.
  • Despite Seviper and Zangoose being enemies, they are in the same egg group and can breed.
  • There is a misconception of Seviper evolving from Ekans or Arbok.
  • In horde battles in X and Y if a Seviper is in a group of Zangoose, it will be attacked by them. Likewise if there is a Zangoose in there group, they will attack the Zangoose.

Origin

Seviper's name comes from the word "viper", and severe or serpent.
