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.
Serperior takes on the appearance of a green snake with small, leaf-like growths at the end of its tail.
Serperior doesn't have any differences to differentiate between male and female.
Serperior appears at the Arbor Area's Verdant Courts in PokéPark 2: Worlds Beyond. It can't be befriended until after the completion of the game. Once that criteria has been meet, you have to enter a special mode in which you have to defeat a total of four Pokémon: Lilligant and Leavanny (two each).
Serperior can be called into battle after this special mode has been completed.
Trading Card Game
Two Serperior cards are listed as Rare Cards in the Black&White set; a third Serperior card exists as a Black/White Promo Card.
Serperior has yet to appear in the Anime as of writing.
Another trainer used a Serperior in both versions of Pokémon Movie 14.
Serperior's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
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.
