|First appearance||Pokémon Black and White|
|Designed by||Game Freak|
Physiology and Behaviour
Snivy is a reptilian Grass-type Pokémon. Most of its body is green in coloration, while it has a cream-colored underside. A yellow stripe runs down the length of its back and tail, and it also has yellow markings around its large eyes. Yellow, curved structures protrude from its shoulders and bend backwards. These structures resemble leaves or small wings and give Snivy the appearance of wearing a collar. In spite of being snake-like in appearance, it has fully-developed limbs. Its slender arms are the same green color as the rest of its body and have three fingers, while its tiny feet match its underside in coloration and have no digits whatsoever. It has a large, palmate leaf with three prongs on the end of its tail. Snivy may be based on a lizard or a snake. It currently has no known gender differences. In the anime, its behaviour seems very serious and somewhat cool and laid-back. It is also shown to be smart in nature.
