Part of the fun of the main series Pokemon games is the knowledge of any kind that Pokémon GO recreates with brief descriptions in their Pokédex records. However, looking at the roles these Pokemon play in other games, and even anime, can enrich the hunting experience of these creatures in Niantic’s mobile game. In honor of the sleek edition of Snivy during the current Unova Celebration 2021 event, let’s take a look at the knowledge of this species.
Dex number 495, Snivy is a pure type of grass from the Unova region, introduced to the world of Pokemon with generation five. This starting Pokemon can be found as a man or a woman and there is no noticeable gender difference. Called “Pokemon on Grass Snake,” here’s what Snivy’s Dex record says:
They photosynthesize by bathing their tails in sunlight. When they are not feeling well, their tails droop.
Snivi, like any starter, is part of a three-step evolutionary line. It evolved into Servine as its form in the second stage and then, finally, Serperior as its final form. All three forms are pure types of grass, with Servine retaining the “Grass Snake” classification, while Serperior becoming the “Regal Pokémon”. Pokémon GO players know this species as one that has broken the long-held trend of beginners to get their shiny shapes on Community Days. However, there is good reason to believe that Snivi, who was featured in the main series of games with Pokemon black and white along with the Oshawott water-type starter and the Tepig fire-type starter, it will once again receive Community Day.
For fans of the anime, Snivy debuted under coach Trip in The shadow of Zecrom! but the species assumes a more prominent role when Ash catches it Snivy plays hard to catch! Although Snivi was eventually left in the lab when Ash moved to the Kalos area, he was a common companion of Ash and Pikachu during their adventures at Unova.
Other Pokédex entries offer new information about Snivy:
- Black: He is very intelligent and calm. Exposure to a lot of sunlight makes his movements faster.
