Devolution by ClayPita Devolution by ClayPita
That's not funny. That's very sad, actually.

All right, this came to my mind after I talked with :iconacc3a: about the new starter Pokémon and she complained about how Snivy devolves since it loses it's arms and legs. I like Serperior and I chose it as my starter, but I have to agree with Acc3a on this. Evolution is supposed to be an improvement and yet they made one where evolution actually removes something useful. That's....weird. And Serperior isn't even the only victim of mother nature's dark humour. Poor Togekiss will never be able to pick its nose again. Luckily it doesn't even have a nose.
Anyway, hope you like it.

I do not own Snivy, Togepi or their sadly disfigured evolved forms.

Snivy and its evolutions are based on the origins of all snakes. They started as limbed lizard-like beings, but navigating through thick grass and tunnels to find prey is more difficult with limbs that can get stuck or make to much noise. So they evolved to deal without them, which they have adapted to be fast and hard to catch.

Serperior can just use vine whips to replace its arms, and Togekiss could use telekinesis.

Yeah, but Togekiss has better stats, so it's either hands or power.

Maybe, but it can't use them as arms so I don't count them.

Serperior keeps his arms behind his backin a relaxed position because he's too smug to even bother getting his hands dirty over an opponent. That's how I see it, anyway.

IIRC Serperior can still equip Arm props in Musicals ... but that's all.  The correct term is 'vestigial'.

Actually, arms are useless on flying pokemon, and would only weigh them down. The same goes for serperior, it's supposed to be snake like, and slithers, so arms would be useless. They also would only need arms for fighting moves, but togekiss's wings and feet can be used for close combat.

...really? That's your argument? Well then, first of all that text only states that Serperior has hands, but never says anything about arms, so it proofs absolutely nothing about this comic. And second, that's not even an official Pokédex entry, it's just some persons interpretation whether those things are hands or leafes, so there. I'm glad I could proof you wrong.

Perhaps they once were hands that turned into leafslike rudiments. But not arms.

At least Serperior has its vines to manipulate objects. Togekiss has absolutely nothing to work with, the poor bastard.

I've seen Togekiss using both of its wings to pick things up. Still, that's a lousy replacement for arms.

forgive me for sounding like an arse, but...
Snivy-Serperior Is actually a reference to natural evolution, as snakes lost their arms after having no need for them.
sides, seperior has arms [link]

Yeah, I know, and I don't think those leafs pass for arms. But I've had these sort of debates way too often to care anymore.
