Sceptile (ジュカイン Jukain) is the Grass-type Starter Pokémon of the Hoenn region, introduced in Generation III. It resembles a cross between a tree gecko and a Dilophosaurus, with bladed leaves near its wrist and a cluster of seeds growing on its back. Its name is derived from "scepter", the staff of a king, and "reptile"; hence, it is known as the "King of the Jungle". Many trainers prefer this speedy lizard because of its decent amount of health and its high speed stat; it has an advantage in forests, jungles and other grassy areas, where it leaps among the trees with great agility and ambushes its opponents from above. It carefully tends its seeds, whose nutrients revitalize the trees around them. It has the Overgrow ability.

Special abilities

Sceptile can learn slashing moves. It learns Leaf Blade, X-Scissor, and Night Slash by leveling up, and Dragon Claw by TM.
