With recent changes to {{Pokémon}}, some things may look a little funny. In particular, all Pokémon that haven't had their gender parameter updated to the new format are displaying as 100% male, regardless of what the old text says. It may take a while but I will be gradually working on updating the affected pages. --Eithris (talk) 04:35, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Snivy (Japanese: ツタージャ Tsutaaja) is a Grass-type Starter Pokémon of the Unova region, introduced in Generation V. Like all of the previous grass starters, Snivy has the ability Overgrow. It is #001 in the Unova Pokédex and its evolutions are #002 and #003 like other grass Starter Pokémon. Snivy is very prideful.

Appearance

Snivy using Leaf Tornado

Snivy is a serpentine creature with a mainly green body, tan stomach and lower head, with the end of its tail being shaped like a leaf as large as its head. Though unlike most other snake-like creatures, Snivy sports arms and legs, being green and tan, respectively. The arms are quite plant-like, ending in three prongs that act like fingers. Its head is a tear drop shape with the top half being green and the bottom half, in front of the neck, being tan. Its eyes are in the intersection between the border of the green and tan parts of its head. Its eyes are surrounded by a yellow marking and are usually half closed. Near the bottom of its neck is a yellow collar which comes up on either side on its body, and comes together in the center of its back, making a line to the bottom of the leaf tail.

The first Snivy seen was when Professor Juniper, introduced the starter Pokémon of Unova. When Trip arrived to pick his starter he chose Snivy, because of its confidence.

Trivia

  • Snivy may be based on a lizard or a snake. Its shared traits with both make it similar to skinks.
  • Snivy's Japanese name is possibly derived from ツタ tsuta, Japanese ivy, and 蛇 jaa, snake.
  • Some large snakes such as pythons and anacondas have vestigial legs which are visible on the outside of them or old snake skeletons carry hips. Yet Snivy's legs seem to function. When Snivy is a Servine and evolves into Serperior, it loses its legs and its arms become small and stubby.
  • In the anime, it is said that Snivy are clever Pokémon. Sometimes they find their trainers incompetent, so they abandon their trainers instead.
  • The English name is the combination of the words "snake" (a reptile), and "ivy" (a plant).
  • Snivy is the second Grass-type starter to stand on two legs, the other being Treecko.
