* Snivy and the other {{2v2|Black|White}} [[starter Pokémon]] were first revealed as silhouettes on the May 9, 2010 episode of [[Pokémon Sunday]]. They were later revealed in full in the June 2010 issue of [[CoroCoro]].
* Shortly after its release, much like many other [[Generation V]] Pokémon newly introduced, Snivy received the fan-made moniker, "Smugleaf". This name was picked up on and published in an article on the video gaming-focused blog [ Kotaku] and later in an issue of [[Media:NZAU Magazine Scan.jpg|Official Nintendo Magazine Australia and New Zealand]], as well as its United Kingdom counterpart.
* Snivy is the only {{type|Grass}} [[starter Pokémon]] that is not listed as the first Pokémon in its [[regional Pokédex]], although it is still #001; this is because the {{p|Victini|Pokémon before it}} has a Pokédex number of #000. It is also the only Grass-type starter Pokémon that is not the first Pokémon of its generation in [[National Pokédex]] order.
* Snivy has the lowest base stat total of all {{type|Grass}} starter Pokémon.
* In {{g|Black and White}}, Snivy, along with {{p|Tepig}} and {{p|Oshawott}}, has the lowest [[experience]] yield of all Pokémon, with a base value of 28. This was done specifically for the first two battles of the games, so the player's starter wouldn't level up after defeating [[Bianca]] and thus have a level advantage over [[Cheren]].
