Seviper are fairly large snake Pokémon that are usually depicted scrunched up like an accordion. They are mostly black in color, but have several markings on their body. Seviper have yellow hexagon markings that run from their head to their tail, small yellow bumps where they touch the ground (this is presumably to help with movement) and various purple scar-like marks. Seviper has several different weapons it can use in battle, such as elongated red fangs that protrude from the mouth and a partially red-colored, bladelike tail that it can use to stab or swipe. Seviper also have fierce red eyes that make it able to use attacks like Glare. Its height is 8'10" and weight is 115.7 lbs.

Gender differencesEdit


Special abilitiesEdit

Seviper can create a horrible poison that it can channel through either the tail or fangs, quickly dispatching prey.

Prior to Advanced Generation Saga, Seviper was the only known Pokémon that learned Poison Tail through leveling up.

Seviper can also use Flamethrower, despite not being able to learn any other Fire-type moves (excluding Sunny Day).


Seviper are bitter enemies with Zangoose, willing to battle them to the bitter end. It is suggested that this feud has lasted for quite some time. It sharpens its swordlike tail on hard rocks for battle, and may hide in tall grass and strike unwary prey with its venomous fangs.


They live on places such as plains and forest to search for prey.

Major appearancesEdit

Jessie's SeviperEdit

Seviper first appeared in A Tail with a Twist. Jessie was so impressed by how it beat up Ash's Treecko, that she just had to capture it. After it bit off a chunk of her hair accidentally, she beat it up with her own two hands. After James, Jake and Meowth calmed her back down, she captured it in a Poké Ball.

Lucy's SeviperEdit

The Battle Pike Queen Lucy owns a Seviper. She used it to fight off Team Rocket and to battle Ash's Donphan in Queen of the Serpentine.


In Tears for Fears!, the rivalry between both Seviper and Zangoose was highlighted upon a couple of times during the episode. Jessie's Seviper had picked up on the three other Zangoose that were making their way towards the team. It had immediately reacted and proceeded to do battle with them. Once learning of the fact that they would be fighting till the death, Jessie had tried to recall Seviper several times, though each time, Seviper would break back out of its Poké Ball to continue fighting.

A Seviper appeared in Saving Braviary! under the ownership of a Team Plasma Grunt named Schwarz.
