Sceptile (Japaneseジュカイン Jukain) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Grovyle starting at level 36. It is the final form of Treecko. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Sceptile using the Sceptilite.

Biology

 
Sceptile climbing a wall

Sceptile is a reptilian, bipedal Pokémon. Its neck is somewhat long, and it has two crests on its head. It has semicircular, yellow eyes with red rims. Its lower jaw and a belt-like band across its waist are also red. Along its back, it has two lines running down the middle and two rows of yellow nodules that are described as seeds. Its tail is shaped similar to that of a palm tree's branch. Both of its long arms have two sharp, elongated leaves and three claws. These leaves allow it to use its former signature moveLeaf Blade.

 

As Mega Sceptile, its head crests become more pointed with a round portion missing from the middle. Red marking surround its eyes, which become smaller and more narrow. The yellow seeds down its back grow larger. The last pair of seeds turns red, while the pair above it turns orange. Red stripes encircle the base of its tail and run across its lower belly. The leaves on its wrists become more pointed, and the upper ones have red tips and half-circles cut out of the middles. Covering its chest and shoulders are plates of leaves similar to those that form its tail. Mega Sceptile's tail grows longer and develops a red stinger at the tip. Mega Sceptile can cut off a portion of its tail to fire it like a missile at an opponent.[1]

Sceptile is a jungle Pokémon. The seeds contain nutrients, which are said to be able to revitalize trees. It is capable of leaping freely from branch to branch. While it has the ability to slice down thick trees, it is known to care lovingly for the plants in the forest. This Pokémon regulates its body temperature by basking in sunlight.

Main article: Emerald's Sceptile

Like most other starter Pokémon, Sceptile has made its only notable appearance in possession of Emerald, being picked as his final battling member for his Battle Factory challenge, which it won after a tough fight. Once he deduced it was no rental Pokémon, but one smuggled in by a third party, he took it into his possession and used it to challenge the Battle PyramidBattle ArenaBattle Palace, and Battle Dome challenges, in which only the latter its team failed to win, due to Emerald making a last-minute decision to switch out his party of Sceptile, Sudowoodo, and Dusclops, feeling that its newly recovered memories and affection for its teammates when under Professor Birch's care would slow it down. It was able to learn the ultimate Grass-type attack Frenzy Plant and helped defeat Guile Hideout's giant, fake Kyogre.

Trivia

  • Mega Sceptile has the highest Special Attack and Speed stats and base stat total of all Grass-type Pokémon.
    • Mega Sceptile also has the highest Speed stat of all Dragon-type Pokémon.
  • Sceptile has the lowest HP base stat of all fully evolved starter Pokémon.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Appearance-wise, this Pokémon resembles the dinosaur known as Dilophosaurus. The orbs of nutrients on its back may be based on the fact that many leguminous plants have nitrogen stored in nodes on their roots. The leaves on the tail in combination with the brightly-colored orbs on its back also make a strong resemblance to both the yew tree and various members of the genus Podocarpus. The Treecko line's appearance and mannerisms are also strongly derived from leaf-tailed geckos.

Name origin

Sceptile may be a combination of reptile and Sceptridium (referring to its fern-like tail) or sectile (referring to the sharp blades growing on its body). It may also derive from scepter (from its title as "King of the Forest") or scissors (referring to the blades on its wrists).

Jukain may derive from 樹海 jukai (abundant leafage).
