Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re
reviewing Seviper, the fang snake Pokémon.
Seviper is useful for one thins and one thing only; offensive.
Being pretty bad in just about everything else, it is a slow,

Let’s move on to the move combinations, let’s see what’s up with
Nature: Modest (+ Special attack, - Attack).
Equip: Petaya berry.
EV´s: 252 Special attack, 252 HP, 6 Defense.
- HP poison/water
- Dark pulse
- Giga drain
- Scary face
Baton pass some speed to this and you will be safe for some
turns, then use scary face and sweep. HP poison is good but if
you are facing Houndoom you might want to try water.
When should I use this Pokémon?
Once again, underused battles can be surprisingly fun. A poison
special sweeper is kind of hard to find.
What should I use against this Pokémon?

competition environment. Sorry Jessie.
Hope you enjoyed.

status infliction, good but that low chance?
Nature was hard to pick. Chose to lower its S.Def and raising
Life Orb to make some extra damage.
Weakness are Ground and Psychic, but it got a bunch of
