Serperior (ジャローダ) is the third Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Grass Type, and it is known as the Regal Pokémon.

Serperior uses the Overgrow Ability. This Ability increases the power of its Grass Type attacks by 50% once its HP falls below one-third of its maximum. Serperior that come from the Dream World have access to a second Ability, the Contrary Ability. This Ability reverses Statistical changes that affect it, causing a Special Attack increase when it uses Leaf Storm, for example.

Snivy evolves into Servine at level 17, and can evolve into Serperior at level 36.

Serperior is in the Egg Groups Field and Grass, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Serperior 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.




Serperior takes on the appearance of a green snake with small, leaf-like growths at the end of its tail.

Gender Differences

Serperior doesn't have any differences to differentiate between male and female.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

In the Sixth Generation, Serperior shot up to the Overused (OU) tier. Serperior finally gained its coveted Dream World ability Contrary, which in conjunction with Leaf Storm, makes it a considerable offensive threat. Serperior can rack up a considerable amount of Special Attack boosts quickly with Leaf Storm, and a nice 113 base Speed that puts it ahead of Pokemon like Latios and Keldeo. Its best set is a Substitute + Leech Seed, or SubSeed, set that can wear down at opposing switch-ins like Heatran. Its other set is a special sweeper set that chooses to have more coverage options and can run Glare to cripple certain switch-ins like Talonflame and Tornadus-T. Serperior's most notable flaw is that its stats are relatively average outside of Speed, with a 75 Special Attack being the biggest letdown when unboosted which can lead to it losing out on crucial KOs with Leaf Storm against Pokemon like Assault Vest Azumarill. It also has overall lackluster coverage, being forced to use Hidden Power Fire and Dragon Pulse to cover certain counters while leaving itself open to other Pokémon.
