Sceptile (ジュカイン Jukain) is the final evolution of the Grass-type Starter Pokémon of the Hoenn region, introduced in Generation III.

Biology

Physiology

Sceptile is a large, bipedal, reptilian, gecko-like Pokémon that also possess the traits of dinosaurs. It has powerfully-built limbs and muscular legs that allow it to run at high speeds to chase after its prey in the jungles where it lives. Its body is mostly vivid green in color, and it has a gracefully rounded belly with a horizontal, pale red stripe extending across it. It has a light red chin and narrowed eyes with small, slit pupils and yellow scleras, with a red rim around the outsides. It has bladed leaves on its wrists, which it uses to slash (using Leaf Blade). It has a long, large dark green, fern-like plant that resembles a tree for a tail, and a cluster of small round yellow nutrient-rich seeds growing on its back. It has three sharp green claws on both its hands and toes.

Sceptile's Mega Evolved form gives it a large tree like tail making it look dragon-like.

Special abilities

Seeing as it has leaves as sharp as swords growing from its body, Sceptile can learn powerful slashing moves. It learns Leaf Blade, X-Scissor, and Night Slash by leveling up, and Dragon Claw by TM. It has ability Overgrow which increase its Grass-type attacks by 50% when its HP gets lower than 1/3. It is extremely agile and swift. The seeds on its back are full of energy which provides trees with revitalizing nutrients.

Behavior

Sceptile are incredibly swift hunters living in forests. They use their bladed leaves to strike down prey and battle foes. They also care deeply about the plants and trees in the forests they inhabit, and raise them with loving care. Being reptile, they are cold-blooded, and must regulate their body temperature by basking in the sunlight.

Evolution

Mega Sceptile

Sceptile is the final evolution of Treecko, by having Grovyle up to level 36. Sceptile can Mega Evolve into Mega Sceptile using its Mega Stone, Sceptilite.

Appearances

Anime

During the Battle Frontier arc, Sceptile was the most powerful Pokémon that Ash ever had and is arguably Ash's strongest Grass-type. It appeared in Diamond and Pearl as well. He is later followed by Sawyer's Sceptile in the XY series when it Mega Evolves into a Mega Sceptile.

Manga

In the Pokémon Adventures Manga, Emerald has a Sceptile.

Trivia

  • Sceptile is the first fully evolved Grass starter Pokémon to not have a flower anywhere on its body.
  • Sceptile is the first bipedal fully evolved Grass starter Pokémon.
  • Sceptile is the fastest of all non-legendary Grass type Pokémon.
  • Sceptile is the first and currently only Grass-type initial Pokemon to have a type advantage against 2 of the 3 main legendary Pokemon's of its respective generation (Kyogre and Groudon).
  • Mega Sceptile and Alolan Exeggutor were the only Grass/Dragon Pokémon until Generation VIII, where Applin and its evolutions, Flapple and Appletun, were introduced.
  • Mega Sceptile and Mega Charizard X are the only Mega Starter's Final Evolution to have Dragon-type in existence.
  • Sceptile is the only fully evolved single type Hoenn starter Pokémon.

Origin

Sceptile resembles a cross between a tree gecko and a Dilophosaurus with elements of ninjas. Mega Sceptile's tail appears to be based on a Christmas tree (as Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire were released in November to coincide with the holiday shopping season) and its ability to launch its tail derives from several lizards' ability to detach and regenerate its tail.

Etymology

Its name is derived from "scepter", the staff of a king, and "reptile"; hence, it is known as the "King of the Forest". It may also come from "deceptive," as it's based on a ninja.

Jukain may be a portmanteau of 樹海 (jukai, dense forest) and "pine" (a type of tree, which its tail resembles in its Mega form).
