Never thought I'd make a snake-based race, but Serperior was definitely a fun race to try making. I will say though that I'm actually unsure whether or not this should be a Large size race, but I guess we'll see.

Fresh Greenery is the same as it was with Chesnaught (5e Race) and Grass Cloak is Tsareena's Leaf Guard by another name, as I couldn't think of anything else to give it. It is also an ability from Serperior can have in Pokemon Conquest.

Serperior calling its territory its "Royal Garden" is a reference to the TCG, where its Legendary Treasures card had an ability by the same name.

Devil's Advocate is the Japanese translation of the ability Contrary. I couldn't figure out how to make an ability like Contrary work, so yeah...

The age section contains a some fun references. The age at which it matures (15) is the average lifespan of a vine snake, which SErperior is based off of. It's average lifespan (80) is based on King Louis XIV age when he died (77). This was done because the Serperior line, according to Ken Sugimori, was based on French royalty, specifically the aforementioned king of France.

Lastly, there's yet another Scan Island reference. If you use Scan Island on Sun/Moon on a Thursday, a Serperior will appear on Exeggutor Island, and the same goes for Chesnaught (5e Race) in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. --MetalShadowOverlord (talk) 04:00, 21 February 2019 (MST)
