BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

This snake-like Pokémon can measure at up to 12 feet long. Its long purple body has a lavender underside and black hexagonal markings on the back; each marking has a black spike on it as well, forming a ridge down the spine. Its face is black with a purple forehead and snout, the latter of which hides a set of razor-sharp teeth, as well as a purple spike on the back of the head. Its jaws are purple and able to dislocate at the sockets, while its eyes are white with slit pupils.

Gender DifferencesEdit

A female lacks the purple spike on the back of her head.

Special abilitiesEdit

Because of their muscular coils, Vypethon can crush boulders with ease. They use this powerful grip to kill prey as large as Stantler with little effort. They also have powerful digestive juices, which enable them to digest a meal, bones and all.

HabitatEdit

They live in dense jungles, where they swim in rivers to ambush their prey.

BehaviorEdit

DietEdit

They are carnivorous, and they can and will eat victims that are as big or bigger than they are.

In Iron & CopperEdit

Jessie's Vypethon

The first appearance of Vypethon, though not mentioned, was possibly in Error Terror! It was most likely Vypethon due to its ability to crush the vaccine that was attacking Ash and his friends - although Ekans, Arbok, and Seviper can also use Wrap. However, FawkesTheSkarmory has stated that it is indeed Vypethon, and indeed it made its official debut appearance in Antidote? Anti-Don't!, and was later captured by Jessie.

Jessie's Vypethon, like her Arbok and Seviper previously, has been used several times since then. It helped capture her Marigne in She Sells Sea Spells, and was used in the Appeals Round of the StormSurge Town Contest in Slippery When Wet.

TriviaEdit

  • Even though real pythons are not venemous and kill by constricting their prey, Vypethon can learn Poison Fang via breeding and move tutor. The same is true for its evolution, Predakonda.
  • Although it is based on a constricting snake, Vypethon cannot learn Constrict. However, it can learn Wrap.

OriginEdit

It is based on large constricting snakes, such as pythons and boas.

Name originEdit

Vypethon is derived from "viper" and "python."

Kujikuhebi comes from kujiku, "to crush," and dokuhebi, "poisonous snake." Thus, it literally means, "the poisonous snake that crushes things."
