Sceptile (ジュカイン) is the third Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Grass Type, and is known as the Forest Pokémon.

Sceptile has the ability Overgrow. With this ability, the power of Sceptile's Grass-Type attacks increases by 50% once its HP falls below one-third of its maximum. Sceptile uses Unburden as its Hidden Ability. This ability doubles the Pokémon's Speed stat once its held item is consumed.

Treecko can evolve into Grovyle starting at Level 16, and a second time into Sceptile starting at Level 36. A Sceptile holding a Sceptilite can Mega Evolve during battle to Mega Sceptile.

Sceptile is in the Egg Groups Dragon and Monster, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Sceptile 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Biology

[edit] Physiology

Sceptile takes the appearance of a green lizard. It has a fern-like growth on its tail, and leaf-like growths protruding from its upper arms. On its back yellow-colored seeds can be seen growing on it.

[edit] Gender Differences

Sceptile doesn't have any distinguishable characteristics to help differentiate between male and female.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Sceptile can only be obtained by evolving a Grovyle, which has been consistent since Generation III.

[edit] Spin-off Games

Sceptile appears at Endless Level 8, Pair Trozei, Forever Level 57 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.

In the original Mystery Dungeon game, Sceptile can only be obtained by evolving Grovyle. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky, Sceptile appears at Mystery Jungle B1-B29.

Sceptile is exclusive to Light Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Mystery Meadow 11F-19F and Legendary Mountains at Floors 27, 29-31, 34-39 and 42-48.

Sceptile appears at the Jungle Ruins in Pokémon Ranger, but a Break Level 2 Field Assist is required to access it. Sceptile-unlike its two unevolved forms-did appear in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia at the Oil Field Hideout. Sceptile also Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs at the third floor of the Oblivia Ruins right before the Altar Room on Sophian Island in the Present, and the Forest Temple Mission "Pidgeotto and the Switch Path," earned by getting an S Rank in the mission. It is the harder to get of the two Pokémon, as it is the Boss Pokémon of that stage.

Sceptile can be found at Sun-Dappled Bank Treetops 2-1 in Pokémon Rumble Blast after completing the game.

The only way to obtain a Sceptile in Pokémon Conquest is to evolve a Grovyle.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Sceptile appears in 10 different sets and two Pokémon Organized Play Series sets (one and four). All of its appearances have Sceptile listed as a Rare Card: EX Ruby and Sapphire (2), EX Team Magma VS Team Aqua, EX Emerald, EX Crystal Guardians (Delta Species), Great Encounters, Stormfront, Arceus (2), Plasma Freeze and Primal Clash (2).

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

Ash would obtain a Sceptile when his Grovyle evolved in the episode Odd Pokémon Out. It evolved to try and gain the interest of a female Tropius, but but was the odd Pokémon out of that love triangle. This would break Sceptile's heart, causing it to lose interest in its attacks from that episode to the episode Cutting the Ties That Bind, which was two episodes later.

The biggest victory that Ash's Sceptile earned-literally-was defeating the Darkrai of Tobias, the only time that Tobias's Darkrai would be defeated at the Sinnoh League Tournament. Sceptile would lose to Tobias's Latios.

A trainer named Tyson would use a Sceptile in the episodes surrounding the Hoenn League Tournament. This Sceptile would be involved in a double-KO with Ash's Glalie.

[edit] Movies

Ash's Sceptile appeared in the film Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea. A Wild Sceptile appears in the film Zoroark: Master of Illusions.

[edit] Manga

Sceptile's Manga information is unknown as of writing.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Sceptile was placed in the UU, or Under-Utilized tier in Generation IV, and remains a staple in the UU Tier in Generation V with its high Speed and varied move pool that can either be built towards Sweeping the opponent or stalling. It is also a viable option in the Rarely-Used and Over-Utilized Tiers for the same reasons, the latter of which helped by Shaymin Sky Forme being bumped to the Uber Tier.
