Serperior (Japanese: ジャローダ Jalorda) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Servine starting at level 36. It is the final form of Snivy.

Biology

Serperior is a primarily pale green, serpentine Pokémon. Its face and throat are white, while its back is dark green. Curled, mint-colored patterns extend into the white portion of its face, and it has narrow red eyes. In the lower jaw, two fangs are visible when its mouth is open. There are two pointed yellow extensions on the back of its head. Coiled, dark green extensions spread out from the sides of its lower neck, forming a curving pattern lower down the body. Just below its neck, it has two small leaf-like hands coming out of either side. It has curved yellow markings around its middle and several palmate leaves on its tail. Serperior will only attack with full force against opponents that are unfazed by its piercing glare. It is capable of amplifying solar energy with its body.

Trivia

 
Serperior in Pokémon Battle Chess

Origin

Serperior appears to be based on different species of serpents and legless lizards, its Grass typing may be a reference vine snakes, or even tree snakes and grass snakes. Some of Serperior's features are similar to genera of Skinks with serpentine aspect such as, but not limited to, Brachymeles and Ablepharus. The shape of its head and the extensions on its collar may be based on the bird of paradise or false bird of paradise flowers, a cobra's hood, or a snake's shed skin.

Ken Sugimori has said that Snivy, Servine, and Serperior are based on French royalty, specifically mentioning Lady Oscar from the anime The Rose of Versailles as an inspiration.[1]

The fact that Serperior amplifies sunlight in its body, as stated in its Pokédex entry, may be an allusion to King Louis XIV of France, who famously referred to himself as the "Sun King". Its white face may allude to the skin whitening fashion, mostly used by the European aristocracy in the 17th century. Its body markings resemble the acanthus leaf motifs popularized during the Renaissance. The dark green design on its chest seems to form a fleur-de-lis, a French insignia that is used on many European noble families' and nations' coat of arms. Along with its regal look, Serperior's ability to seize opponents with its piercing stare may be a reference to the basilisk, the king of serpents in European legend.

Name origin

Serperior may be a combination of serpent and superior. It may also be a combination of serpent and warrior or emperor.

Jalorda may be a combination of 蛇 ja (snake) and lord.
