Servine, the Grass Snake Pokémon, and the evolved form of Snivy. Servine whips its opponents with vines, and dodges their attacks by hiding in the shadows of thick foliage
– Ash’s Pokedex
Servine’s family is my favourite starter family in Gen V. I picked Snivy in Pokemon White, his name is Smugleaf. I think it was the first time I used a Grass starter.
Anyway, in the short time that Smugleaf was a Servine, I love his battle animation. When I send him out, he would cross his arms and tap his feet while waiting for my command. It’s a bit of a shame that he lost his arms and legs when he evolved into Serperior. I also love Servine’s seductive and secretive smile.
Servine’s cry is rather unique (as are the rest of its family), it sounds rather shrill, like it’s going “eeeeee”.
Servine’s stats are pretty even, with higher Speed and Defenses. It only learns Grass and Normal attacks by level-up (although it learns 2 Poison type moves, neither are attacking moves).
