Seviper (ハブネーク) is the 124th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Poison-Type, and it is known as the Fang Snake Pokémon.

Seviper has the Shed Skin Ability. This Ability gives it a 1 in 3 chance every turn of healing itself from a Status Condition, such as Paralysis or a Burn. A second Ability is available to Seviper from the Dream World, the Infiltrator Ability. This Ability cancels the effects of moves like Barrier and Light Screen, preventing those moves from having an effect on this Pokémon's attacks.

Seviper does not evolve and does not have any pre-evolved forms.

Seviper is in the Egg Groups Field and Dragon, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Seviper up to 1,640,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Competitive Battling

Seviper finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. It is capable of running both types of offensive moves due to balanced Attacking statistics, and Shed Skin gives it a chance at recovering from Status Conditions. Plus, it can absorb Toxic Spikes.

Seviper does have access to Glare, which can afflict an opponent with Paralysis to offset Seviper's low Speed. Also to offset low Speed is Sucker Punch in the form of a priority move.

In addition to the aforementioned low Speed, Seviper is frail defensively, making it relatively easy to defeat with faster Pokémon.
