Servine (ジャノビー) is the second Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Grass Type, and it is known as the Grass Snake Pokémon.

Servine makes use of the Overgrow Ability. This Ability increases the power of its Grass Type attacks by 50% when its HP falls below one-third of its maximum. Servine that come from the Dream World have access to a second Ability, the Contrary Ability. This Ability affects moves that change this Pokémon's Statistics; if a Servine with this Ability was going to use Swords Dance its Attack would decrease instead but if it were to use Leaf Storm its Special Attack would increase.
