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 that originate from the Dream World can have a second ability, called Unburden. This ability doubles the Pokémon's Speed stat once its held item is consumed.
On June 7, 2014 it was revealed via leaks of CoroCoro that it would be getting a Mega Evolution, in the upcoming Generation III remakes, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby, alongside the other second-stage Hoenn starter Pokémon, Swampert and Blaziken. It will be re-typed as Grass / Dragon with the ability Lightning Rod.
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.
 Gender Differences
Sceptile doesn't have any distinguishable characteristics to help differentiate between male and female.
 Game Information
 Original Games
Sceptile can only be obtained by evolving a Grovyle.
 Spin-off Games
Sceptile appears at Endless Level 8, Pair Trozei, Forever Level 57 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.
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.
 Trading Card Game
Sceptile appears in nine 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, and Arceus (2).
 Anime/Manga Information
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.
Sceptile's Manga information is unknown as of writing.
 Pokémon Information
 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.
