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!
