List of Pokémon (494–545)


List of Pokémon (494–545)

Contents

Pokémon has 646 (as of Pokémon Black and White) distinctive fictional species classified as the titular Pokémon. These creatures and entities reside throughout various locations of the fictional Pokémon universe and can be caught by humans designated as Pokémon Trainers often using devices called Poké Balls. These trainers use Pokémon for a variety of purposes, such as being pets and loyal companions and/or being pitted against other trained Pokémon in competitive Pokémon battles. Pokémon are potentially super-powered creatures that can employ a variety of talents such as generating fire or heat, martial arts, telekinesis, and so on. Through age and experience many of these species undergo a metamorphosis and transform into a similar but stronger species in a process referred to as Pokémon evolution.

This is a selected listing of fifty-two of the Pokémon species, arranged as they are in the main game series' National Pokédex.

Victini

Number: 494 Type: Psychic/Fire Does not evolve

Victini (ビクティニ Bikutini?), known as the Victory Pokémon, is a small rodent-like Pokémon. Its large pointed ears shaped like letter V. It is said that a trainer with a Victini will always win any kind of battle. It produces infinite energy within itself and shares with others by touching them. Victini was designed by Mana Ibe, under the instructions from game director Junichi Masuda that it would be more appealing to women. Victini can only be obtained via a downloadable wi-fi event. It appears in the film Pokémon the Movie: Black - Victini and Reshiram and White - Victini and Zekrom

Snivy

Number: 495 Type: Grass Evolves from: None Evolves into: Servine

Snivy[1] (ツタージャ Tsutāja?, Tsutarja), known as the Grass Snake Pokémon, is one of the starter Pokémon in the Pokémon Black and White versions. Its arms and tails are similar to a palmate tree with three prongs, respectively. A Snivy uses its tail to process photosynthesis, and if it loses energy, its tail sags gradually.[2] When charged up with sun's energy, its movement speed sharpens.[3] Snivy is known to behave accordingly in situations.[3] In an interview with Ken Sugimori, he explained that Snivy was based on snakes that look like vines, and would have an aristocrat-like personality. He also stated that Snivy's evolution would be Western style of design.[4]

It was first revealed as a silhouette on the May 9, 2010, episode of Pokémon Sunday.[5] In the anime, Snivy was first seen in "In the Shadow of Zekrom" as the starter Pokémon of Trip, a beginner trainer in the Unova region.[6] In "Snivy Plays Hard to Catch", Ash Ketchum also encounters a female Snivy and successfully captures her.[7] Snivy is also featured along with the other starter Pokémon in the Pokémon Adventures manga as one of the starters in Professor Juniper's lab. Snivy is Monta's starter Pokémon in the Pokémon Master Black & White manga.

In a poll by Official Nintendo Magazine, it was voted as the most popular of the Starter Pokémon from Pokémon Black and White.[8][9] As such, it has been nicknamed "Smugleaf" by fans and has quickly become an internet meme.[10][11] GamesRadar's Gudmundson called it "arguably the coolest-looking starter of the three."[12] Gudmundson later noted its quality as a grass Pokémon due to a healthy movepool of grass-type moves.[13] IGN's Audrey Drake and Rich George chose Snivy as their starting Pokémon; Drake chose it "because he's a little badass" and due to it being the most challenging, while George described him as "mischievous". Drake found its final form's lack of arms to be weird, while George called it an "awesome demon snake." Fellow IGN editor Sam Claiborn described Snivy as an "abomination."[14]

Servine

Number: 496 Type: Grass Evolves from: Snivy Evolves into: Serperior

Servine[15] (ジャノビー Janobī?, Janovy), a Grass Snake Pokémon, is the evolution of Snivy. Servine resembles a grass snake, and its appearance is very similar to Snivy except its back is grown by three palmate leaves with three prongs each. During a battle, it can run as if gliding from the ground that may bewilder its enemies.[16] It evades attack by passing overgrown plants and then whipping the foe quickly.[17]

In the anime, a Servine is first seen battling against a Dewott in one of the Battle Clubs in the Unova region.[18] Trip's Snivy was revealed to have evolved into a Servine some time before Trip's second battle against Ash Ketchum.[19]

Serperior

Number: 497 Type: Grass Evolves from: Servine Evolves into: None

Serperior (ジャローダ Jarōda?, Jalorda), known as the Regal Pokémon, is the final evolution of Snivy. Unlike its pre-evolutions, Serperior has no legs anymore and has retained its short hands. Serperior is more snake-like than Snivy and Servine. It intimidates its foe by raising its head high and glaring them would make its enemies stun.[20][21] If it faces a formidable enemy, Serperior tends to battle seriously.[21] It increases it power by utilizing solar energy in its body.[20]

In a poll by Official Nintendo Magazine, Serperior was voted as one of the best Pokémon from Black and White. Editor Thomas East stated that "not many people would dispute that choosing Snivy as a Starter is all worth it in the end for its awesome final evolution.".[22]

Tepig

Number: 498 Type: Fire Evolves from: None Evolves into: Pignite

Tepig[1] (ポカブ?, Pokabu) is a Fire Pig Pokémon that resembles a pig and is one of the starter Pokémon for Pokémon Black and White versions. When hungry, it uses its flame to cook for its food.[23] It blows fire from its nostrils, but this is replaced with smoke when it catches a cold.[24] In an interview with Ken Sugimori, he stated that Tepig's evolution would be Chinese style of design.[4] Tepig's original Japanese name is a portmanteau of Pokapoka (ぽかぽか?), a Japanese word that refers to the warm feeling that circulates repeatedly throughout a body, and Bū (ブー?), which refers to a pig's sound.

In the anime, Tepig was first seen in In the Shadow of Zekrom!, under the ownership of Professor Juniper, as one of the starter Pokémon to be chosen by Trip. One later appears as an unfortunate Pokémon that was left behind by its trainer in Battle Club, after being defeated in a challenge. Ash Ketchum befriended the Pokémon and captured it afterward.[18] In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Tepig, along with Oshawott and Snivy appear when Black accidentally drops his box containing the Pokémon. The Tepig eventually joins his team and is named "Poka". Tepig is Cheren's starter Pokémon in the Pokémon Master Black & White manga series.

The Escapist criticized Tepig's evolution line for being another Fire/Fighting type starter.[25] Game Informer's Jeff Marchiafava criticized its name for possibly being a pun of "tepid", which means lukewarm.[26] GamesRadar's Carolyn Gudmundson criticized its evolutionary line; while she enjoyed the first form's design, she felt that the final form was a disappointment, as well as the use of a combination of fire and fighting as its type, a type combination used for the last three fire starters.[27] IGN's Sam Claiborn chose Tepig as his starting Pokémon due to its final form which he described as a "bipedal pig demon".[14]

Pignite

Number: 499 Type: Fire/Fighting Evolves from: Tepig Evolves into: Emboar

Pignite[28] (チャオブー Chaobū?, Chaoboo), a Fire Pig Pokémon, is the evolved form of Tepig.

In the anime, Pignite made its debut appearance in Minccino-Neat and Tidy! under the ownership of Bianca.

Emboar

While it still appears to have resemblance to its pre-evolution, Emboar are much more boar-like than pig-like. Additionally, it appears to have beard-like fire that circles its neck and shoulders. It has longer tusks that protruding its jaw and golden adornment. Emboar utilizes the flames on its neck during battle, where it uses its fist to set up combined fire and fighting moves on opponents.[31] When leveling up, it masters up both fighting skills with speed and powers combined.[32]

GamesRadar called it "such a disappointment design-wise."[33]

Number: 501 Type: Water Evolves from: None Evolves into: Dewott

Oshawott (ミジュマル?, Mijumaru), known as the Sea Otter Pokémon, has a shell on its belly made of the same components as fingernails. It can detach the shell from its body and use it as a sword.

Multiple Patrat made a brief cameo in Black and White episode 3 with multiple Pidove and Deerling where they needed help from Ash and his friends. In the Pokémon Master Black & White manga, Monta captures a Patrat in the first chapter.

Patrat and its evolution Watchog were called "fairly unremarkable aside from their intense facial expressions" by GamesRadar's Carolyn Gudmundson.[37] Gudmundson later noted it as a "Bidoof analog", in spite of the fact that it can only learn one Hidden Machine, whereas Bidoof can learn many. She adds that it is very easy to become bored of it.[38] Official Nintendo Magazine's Chris Schilling commented that Patrat was the "new Bidoof".[39]

She then uses it against Ash in his Gym Battle in "The Battle Acconding to Lenora" where it defeats his Oshawott with Thunderbolt. It appears once more in "Rematch at the Nacrene Gym!", where it is defeated by Oshawott's Aqua Jet.

Game Informer's Jeff Marchiafava described Watchog as a "pissed-off meerkat", and further calling it a "disgruntled-looking jerk".[26] An editor for GamesRadar included it in a satirical character battle between their "ultimate hated characters".[43]

In the Pokémon Master Black & White manga, Cheren uses a Pansage against Monta in a triple battle.

Game Informer's Jeff Marchiafava stated that its ability, Gluttony, "almost makes up for the broccoli growing out of its head".[26] GamesRadar's Carolyn Gudmundson commented that it was the most appealing of the three monkeys, design-wise.

In the Best Wishes episode "Facing Fear With Eyes Wide Open!", a Palpitoad is encountered and it leads a school of Tympole to attack Ash's Oshawott and prevent it from getting herbs to cure the company's poisoned Pokémon. After the Tympole swim away, it calls on its friend, a Stunfisk, to get rid of Oshawott. Cilan makes short work of Stunfisk with his fishing rod, so Palpitoad comes to battle Oshawott personally.

A wild Scolipede appears in The Bloom is on Axew. Iris's Axew falls out of a tree and gets caught in Scolipede's antennae. This startles Scolipede and causes it to go on a rampage, until Iris's Excadrill decides to defeat it with its Drill Run attack.[128] A Scolipede also appeared in Emolga The Irresistible, after Bianica blasted it with her Pignite's Flamethrower.
