15 Best Snake-Like Pokémon in the Franchise

Snake Pokemon are some of the most epic Pokemon of all time, their unique ways of attacking in battle and how creepy and adorable they are at the same time! Here are the best Pokemon who look like snakes.

Best Snake Pokemon in the Franchise
 15. Ekans - its name backwards spells snake! Ekans was introduced in Generation 1 and is one of the coolest OG Pokemon going. Here is the original snake Pokémon, with its purple scales and yellow tail that resembles a rattlesnake. It evolves in to Arbok at level 22 and from the way it slithers through the grass to how it preys on Pidgey eggs, there is no denying that this is the Pokémon universe’s equivalent to a common snake in the grass.

 14. Arbok - the cobra pokemon! A more frightening and venomous cobra creature, its name spells 'kobra' backwards, which is pretty indicative. Just like how many snakes in real life have unique patterns on their scales, the pattern on Arbok’s hood has over 20 possible designs, all of which make them even more scary looking, but this is so cool too. Like how real snakes catch their prey, Arbok uses its body to coil around opponents and crush them to immobilize them.

 13. Seviper - a super cool looking typical snake pokemon that has golden plates on its body and an epic tail and fangs, this Pokémon was designed to appear ferocious and terrifying to intimidate its opponents. Seviper are usually shown with their bodies scrunched up, which means they must be incredibly long, huge beasts at full length when stretched out, which gives me the creeps. As like many snakes in real life, this snake Pokémon is also poisonous and is known for its signature move, Poison Tail. Seviper is said to rival another Pokemon from the same generation, Pokémon Zangoose, which is designed as a mongoose (snakes like to eat mongoose kind in real life).

 12. Rayquaza - just that epic name is indicative of its mighty and ferocious nature, this legendary Pokemon is like a dragon snake hybrid. It consumes meteoroids for sustenance and flies forever through the ozone layer. It may be known as a dragon-type, but there’s no denying that it resembles that of a snake. Long and curled, with its epic Air Lock ability, Rayquaza is serpent-like in its movements and is easily one of the most powerful of the snake-like Pokémon.

 11. Onix - known as the Rock Snake Pokemon, which is such an epic and unique take on the typical snake design, Onix has a body made of rocks to make up its snake-like body. While Onix may not be able to quietly sneak and slither through grass like most snakes, this massive creature can actually tunnel underground to move between locations. It also moves at speeds up to 50 miles per hour so this guy can come flying out of the ground at any minute, which is pretty terrifying!

 10. Steelix - a powerful steel snake creature, Steelix is the evolved form of Onix and has now become a seemingly indestructible iron snake. It retains the long and snake-like body but now has spikes that emerge from rock-like sections along its steely skin. It has a bulbous head that looks almost like a shark and is pretty much the picture of utter destruction waiting to happen. If you thought Onix was terrifying, Steelix is on another level. Like Onix, Steelix is often found underground in mountains or in caves.

 9. Dratini - such an innocent looking snake like creature introduced in Generation 1, Dratini is said to be a Dragon type Pokemon but looks part snake, part seahorse, part mer-creature and just something that we want to hug, despite it having no arms. These are easily the cutest of the snake-like Pokémon and it’s hard to imagine being threatened by something with such big adorable eyes. They do have scaly skin with a reptile appearance so I think they deserve to be listed as honorary snake-like monsters. Dratini are real water babies and can often be found living underwater.

 8. Dragonair - a celestial looking version of Dratini, Dragonair is its evolved form and retains its snake-like, almost eel-like appearance, even though it is ultimately a Dragon Pokémon. It's a Generation 1 Pokemon and starting at level 55 can go on to evolve in to Dragonite, a fully fledged dragon. It has the beginnings of a horn sprouting on its head, yet still has a rattle on the end of its tail, bearing a similarity to the real life rattlesnake.

 7. Servine - a Grass type Pokemon from Generation 5, whose long winding body and arched head is reminiscent of a snake in design. Although Servine has feet, these guys are still considered as grass snakes in the Pokémon world. Like the snakes in real life, Servine stay in tall grass to hide from their prey until they choose to attack. They evolve from Snivy (a grass starter for gen 5) who could also be considered almost snake-like. But Servine’s long body is what makes them a distinctive choice that gets them a spot on this list.

 6. Serperior - known as the Regal Pokemon, Serperior is the evolved form of Servine, much more of a snake looking creature that also gets a mention as one of the Best Grass Type Pokemon of All Time! Now it adopts much more of a snake like appearance since it loses the ability to walk and is forced to slither around. When Serperior opens its mouth, it bears two large fangs, used to help consume food and to fend off attackers in battle.

 5. Milotic - an exotic looking magical water snake, Milotic is one of the most beautiful Pokemon I have ever come across, its design is so elaborate and creative. Though much more tender and kinder than most of the slithering members of this list, Milotic’s long and scale-filled bodies are reminiscent of a water snake. Milotic are classified as a water-type Pokémon, so you might call them great snakes of the sea, although they are rare and difficult to acquire.

 4. Huntail - a funky looking fishy fellow that resides in the deepest parts of the ocean, slithering around the sand and clams at the bottom of the sea. Equipped with an eel-like body, fins, yet a bulbous head and fangs that are definitely snake-like, Huntail is the evolved form of Clamperl. To evolve up, figure out your best Clamperl and acquire a Deep Sea Tooth for this complex evolution process.

 3. Eelektrik - it's the long and winding body of Eelektrik that earn it a prime spot on this list, it's such a funky fellow, although perhaps more eel-like than snake-like, with its name a good giveaway. Eelektrik’s body is reminiscent of a slithering swimming snake that would make a welcoming addition to your party as a tough water & surf HM monster. Although a quirky looking creature, it’s one of the most powerful monsters in its generation (5). This is partially because it is an electric Pokémon so, although it looks like a water baby, it is actually more powerful against all water types. Just like a real life snake, Eelektrik coils around the body of its prey before feeding on it, which makes it a truly ruthless and epic creature.

 2. Dunsparce - often known as the land snake Pokemon, Dunsparce may not have the long and winding body of others on this list, but its rattle-like tail is very suggestive of the rattlesnake. While it may almost feel like the Magikarp of dark caverns, the Dunsparce is kind of cute and prefers to hide or scuttle away instead of attacking, but they are pretty rare to find.


Best Snake Pokemon in the Franchise
 1. Gyarados - the evolved form of Magikarp, Gyarados evolves from a fish Pokémon to become more serpentine and pretty dragon-like in shape. Covered in strong dragon scales, this Pokémon is actually a water baby and most probably the strongest water type snake Pokémon. Its bite is extremely powerful, it possesses extraordinary fangs it can use to crush almost anything in the ocean. Like real life snake, many snake Pokémon like to use their stealth to hide and surprise their prey but Gyarados is not a fan of a coy attacks. It has a vicious temperment and can be incredibly destructive without barely lifting a finger. Happily Gyarados is the easiest shiny version of a snake Pokémon to catch!
