Appearances

Anime

Jessie's Seviper.

Main article: Jessie's Seviper

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 and styled into a medium-length, Jessie became very angry and physically attacked it. She almost killed it, but James and Meowth told her to catch it, so she did.

Overall, Lucy's own Seviper is the most powerful after Jessie's Seviper and it manages to overpower Jessie's by clashing with its Poison Tail before it blasts them off with Flamethrower. However in her fight against Ash, it was defeated by Ash's Donphan before she releases her Milotic to battle him.

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 their group, they will attack the Zangoose.
  • On Pokémon Trainer's Choice, one of the questions was "Which Pokémon evolves into Seviper?", and the answer was Arbok. This was a mistake because Seviper doesn't evolve and Arbok is fully evolved.

Origin

Seviper's name comes from the word "viper", and severe or serpent. Its elongated fans suggest that it may be based on the Gaboon viper, which has the longest fangs of any snake in the world. Its feud with Zangoose is a nod to the relationship between snakes and mongooses.
