Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the year of the snake, so here’s Serperior.
Serperior, the Regal Pokémon and the evolved form of Servine. Serperior’s glare can halt its opponent’s movement. It increases the solar energy it absorbs.
– Ash’s Pokedex
Serperior is my favourite starter of Gen V. It’s quite regal-looking and a bit judgemental.
In the anime, Ash’s rival Shootie/Trip has a Serperior. It has pretty terrible moves, which includes Dragon Tail, Wrap, and 2 Grass moves.
