Serperior (the Regal Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Grass-type Pokémon found among grasslands and forests within the Unova region. Renowned for their incredible speed and mastery of advanced combat tactics, Serperior are extremely intelligent creatures that can easily overcome the odds by beating the opposition to the punch every time. These creatures might not have much in the way of attack variety, but they hardly need it; once these beasts give their opposition a good long stare, the battle is sure to be all but over!

Much like Leafeon, the members of the Snivy family contain both plant and animal cells within their bodies, making proper classification somewhat difficult. While they are technically reptilian and are closely related to snakes, these creatures obtain most of their nutrition through photosynthesis; however, they are still known to hunt for small prey at night when they need extra energy. Much like snakes, the members of the Snivy family spend the majority of their time basking in the warmth of the sun; this is not only because they are cold-blooded and need the warmth to survive, but also because they can internally boost any solar energy taken in and use it to power up their attacks and accelerate their movement. At full strength, the members of this family can move unbelievably fast, making it hard for opponents to keep up with them. It should be noted, however, that this is their only way of dealing with particularly troublesome foes; aside from a few exceptions, the members of the Snivy family can only learn Normal and Grass-type offensive moves and are thus highly limited in their combat roles without the use of TMs.

Upon reaching adulthood, Servine completely lose their limbs and are granted a fully serpentine body embedded with photosynthesizing cells throughout. While this means that they lose the ability to easily confuse opponents with upright-to-ground body movements, the loss is more than compensated by a drastic increase in power and agility. Slithering around on the ground faster than the eye can track them, Serperior are masters at ending most battles right at the beginning by quickly wrapping around their opponents and strangling them into unconsciousness with their powerful Wrap attack; in the case of opponents with horns or sharp protrusions, Superior will usually rely on their Leaf Blade and Leaf Storm attacks to claim victory from a slight distance. Unfortunately, Serperior are a bit too proud of themselves and almost never raise their head off of the ground or take their battles seriously unless their opponents prove to be a significant threat. If that proves to be the case, Serperior will gladly raise themselves up as much as they can and stare coldly at their opponent; though they can only learn the Glare technique as an Egg Move, the stare of a Serperior still has a powerful paralyzing effect that can render others immobile for up to minute, providing more than enough time for Serperior to wrap around and squeeze the life out of their opposition. Those that are not so easily dazed are treated as extreme threats by Serperior and are often struck down with much more powerful attacks like Leaf Blade in order to end the encounter before Serperior lose their control over the outcome of the battle.

Despite the fact that their snobby attitudes make them take all but the most serious competition lightly, Serperior are nonetheless dangerous creatures that can easily squeeze most creatures into submission in the blink of an eye. With astounding agility and the right combination of moves to pull off more surprising tactics than you can shake a stick at, Serperior are wonderful Dark Horse candidates that can easily become tournament-worthy creatures if their attitudes can be dealt with. If you find yourself facing one of these floral serpents in battle, do everything that you can to take them down before they recognize you as threat; once they are at the top of their game, you'll definitely have a hard time staring down these regal serpents!

I've faced a few Serperior with Contrary, its Hidden Ability, and I can say this with absolute certainty: That Ability makes it quite troublesome, especially combined with Leaf Storm. Normally, a successful use of Leaf Storm would sharply LOWER the Special Attack stat. Unfortunately(or fortunately, if you are the Serperior's trainer), Contrary reverses stat changes, meaning Leaf Storm now sharply RAISES the Special Attack stat. Anything with Sap Sipper would be of great help against Serperior with Contrary.

Alright, no need to get riled up over it; it was just a suggestion. I suppose then that she might just like doing it for fun or as a strange sign of affection (quite possibly the latter).

No, really! I've witnesses a female Serperior ruling an entire forest filled with Pokemon, and these look at her like a queen. She's gentle, forgiving towards bad guys and overall looks at the Pokemon as her own children. How do I know? Well, let's just say that she pretty much raised me. She's also a former Trainer's Pokemon, but sadly her old man... Waaaah!

My serperior was extremely proud to the point he wouldn't listen, but then he got very sick, and me and my beautiful took care of him, and now he only is submissive to beautiful and me, but is there an other way to gain their respect?

I trained my Serperior Tsuta extremely well in using his leaf blade, and he's learned to use it in many interesting ways. I also taught him dragon tail to deal with any type advantage opponents he might face. He thinks highly of himself and looks down on the rest of my team except my Hydreigon Hakai (slightly due to fear and he sort of helped me look after her after first she hatched).

My Serperior (named after the Sun King, Louis XIV) is quite the strategist : using moves likes Leech Seed and Coil, equipped with the Scope Lens and using Leaf Blade, he is quite the force to be reckoned with. If a Grass-type Pokémon comes in, Aerial Ace does the job pretty well. :)

Furret, snivy, chandelure and I traveled togheter that time.

Ivy(Serperior) really took a long time to evolve as a snivy, but when she became a serperior, any opponent could beat us, you're right, they are extremely proud of themselves, she stopped taking battles seriously after we trained hard, still as snivy, but serperior is one of my most loyal pokemons, she would never forgive herself for losing a battle

I must say, this is a great report. However, one problem. Serperior can learn the move Dragon Tail and Iron Tail as moves, so they are not restricted to only normal and grass physical attacks.
Reply
:iconmutitus:
Mutitus Featured By Owner May 9, 2012  Professional Writer
That is true, but you must understand that I write from the perspective of wild Pokemon. Neither of those move are learned by Serperior naturally.

:iconsnivyiztehbomb:
SnivyIzTehBomb Featured By Owner May 9, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Well, in actuality, wild pokemon must be bred by wild Pokemon, and since Serperior/Snivy are know to leave their trainers and go to the wild. (if they are not sufficent) Thus a serperior knowing Dragon Tail or Iron Tail may breed with wild Serperior. This also works with other pokemon naturally learning iron tail in the wild breeding with pokemon learning it by egg move and then that pokemon breeding with serperior.

Correct, but that may only account for less than 1% of all living specimens and is thus not a common occurrence.

To a point. Going too far results in a piece that is too long to capture the interest of others. Moderation is the key even with factual information.

Sir, I am impressed by all your reports, but I must admit, Snivy and its evolution line are one I'd rather not like
Its not you, I just have a small 'thing' against Snivy's which drew me to Oshawotts
