Does it disturb anyone else that Serperior loses his arms when he is fully involved? It creeps me out too much so I could never pick Snivy. It just feels weird how the game sees it as an evolution to lose two of your limbs. Even Servine’s hands seem useless compared to what they were before.

Vine Whip can act as a replacement
>>

Isn't it holding its arms behind its back?

also vine whip is basically even more useful than arms

I feel the same way about pokemon that start bipedal and evolve into quadrupedal forms
>>
>>37990975
I always felt like the progression should've been the other way around.
>first stage is a snake
>second stage has arms, like a naga
>final stage is a lizard/dinosaur
>>
>>37990975
But he still has hands. Tiny nubby hands, but they’re still there.
>>
>>37990995
This

>>37991022
Yeah that shit is creepy too. It’s a straight up loss of motor function.

vestigial structures are common in nature

I want voreniggers to fuck off
>>
>>37991162
well as the first person to mention vore, you need to fuck off
>>
>>37991022
this、samurott was a mistake. the same is true for the reverse as well、incineroar fucked up it's line too.
>>
>>37991180
These threads always turn into vorefags trying to get each other off, I may as well tell the freaks to fuck off in advance
>>
>>37991022
It's not like bipedalism is always "more evolved." Walking on two legs is more energy efficient but there's an obvious reduction in power/speed.
>>
>>37991207
Well I think with bipedalism you can use your hands for way more complex functions and in general it signifies a more intelligent creature. Seems like a huge downgrade to lose those functions of your arms and just have them be for walking
>>
>>37990975
It disturbs me how fucking shit it is, first time I've ever dropped a starter in my first run of a game
>>
>>37991207
Having hands is a big deal and big for our quality of life and allowing us to come as far as we did. The loss of the use of hands is fucked to me, especially when a pokemon has done all its growing and spent its formative years having hands, just to evolve and be stuck on all fours and not be able to use their hands anymore. For a wild feral animal speed might be a big deal but pokemon have shown more than enough intelligence to benefit from having hands so having a pokemon evolve to lose them and be quadrupedal is weird, especially in an environment where there are more factors to surviving than just being able to run good.
>>
>>37991244
bro just leech seed and substitute and spam potions for 20 turns bro it's totally usable bro
>>
>>37991224
Except this is Pokemon, where most (if not all) of the intelligence is from the trainer. I'd almost expect the people to select for quadrupedalism in fully evolved mons if given the chance.
>>
>>37991244
you are awful

>>37990975
She's holding her arms behind her back. She did lose her legs though.
>>
Could you argue it’s an upgrade for Samurott? The hands of his previous forms are pretty flimsy and he probably has greatly improved mobility in water.
>>
>>37991244
Its Chikorita’s unovan form
>>
>>37991244
Agreed. I don’t get the love for Serperior. Really boring looking and underwhelming.
>>
>>37991283
I just don't get why they kept him primarily on four legs. It looks goofy as hell. Switching to four in water makes sense but when its on land it should be fighting on two legs.
>>
>>37991187
>samurott was a mistake.
HE'S NOT FUCKING QUADRUPEDAL
>>
>>37991308
>>37991318
Isn’t samurott able to use his hands? I think I saw in the anime he can use them like normal
>>
>>37991348
>feet are hands
>>
>>37991318
facultative bipeds dont count autismo. he's a quadruped in his daily life

Would Samurott be better more like this?

Yeah, just like Servine's

They look fucking useless for anything

Serperior is a haughty French douchebag. He doesn't need arms because the servants do everything for him.
>>
>>37991423
HELL YES
>>
>>37990975
That's how snakes evolved in real life. They were lizards that lost their limbs because it was advantageous to do so.
>>
>>37991244
YOU are really awful
>>
Serperior is the devil and God took his arms away
>>
>>37990975
Serperior represents the natural evolution of snakes. Didn't they start out with limbs anyways?
>>
>>37991423
This would be great, actually. I like Samurott well enough as it is, but this is definitely an improvement.
>>
>>37991626
>Didn't they start out with limbs anyways?
Yes, they're technically lizards.
>>
>>37991244
Serperior is shit ingame, but you're even more shit for not being able to beat the game with any Pokemon
>>
>>37991657
>any Pokemon
Even Cosmog?
>>
>>37991423
>>37991518
>>37991633
How is this an improvement? The whiskers is connected with the beard and the armor isn't samurai-styled anymore

Imagine being inside him and those slick fleshy walls caressing and kneading over every inch of your naked body.

What? How not?
>>
>>37991698
Technically you probably could using struggle
>>
>>37991244
>>37991289
Imagine being so bad at Pokemon you can't even get through in-game with a perfectly fine Pokemon like a starter.

Over 20 different groups of lizards evolved leglessness. Snakes were just one group of many.
Leglessness just works really well for certain animals.
>>
>>37991244
is this a troll? Coil + leaf blade was a disgusting combo
>>
>>37990975
It's a snake. Snakes don't have legs.

You should have made this thread about Parasect.
