Snivy using Leaf Tornado

Snivy is a serpentine creature with a mainly green body, tan stomach and lower head, with the end of its tail being shaped like a leaf as large as its head. Though unlike most other snake-like creatures, Snivy sports arms and legs, being green and tan, respectively. The arms are quite plant-like, ending in three prongs that act like fingers. Its head is a tear drop shape with the top half being green and the bottom half, in front of the neck, being tan. Its eyes are in the intersection between the border of the green and tan parts of its head. Its eyes are surrounded by a yellow marking and are usually half closed. Near the bottom of its neck is a yellow collar which comes up on either side on its body, and comes together in the center of its back, making a line to the bottom of the leaf tail.

Trivia

  • Some large snakes, such as pythons and anacondas, have vestigial legs which are visible on the outside of them or old snake skeletons carry hips. Yet Snivy's legs seem to function. When Snivy is a Servine, its arms become shorter. And when it evolves into Serperior, it loses its legs completely and its arms become small and stubby.
  • Snivy is the second Grass-type starter to stand on two legs, the other being Treecko.
  • Snivy is also a playable character in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond; she's also a Princess and daughter of Queen Serperior.

Origin

Snivy is based on the green vine snake.

Etymology

Snivy's English name is the combination of the words "snake", and "ivy".

Names in other languages

Snivy's Japanese name, Tsutaja, is likely derived from ツタ tsuta, Japanese ivy, and 蛇 jaa, snake.
