Sceptile's appearance is based on a lizard. Sceptile's neck is somewhat long, and it has two crests on its head. Its eyes are semicircular with yellow scleras and red rims. Sceptile's lower jaw is also colored red, and there is a belt-like band of red coloration on its waist. There is a thin stripe across Sceptile's chest, somewhat resembling the shape of the letter V. Sceptile's plant-like characteristics include the six yellow nodules, described as "seeds" on its back (similar in appearance to the nodules on leguminous plants that are able to take in nitrogen from the air) and a palm-tree-branch-like tail. Sceptile's arms are long and have two thick, sharp, powerful, elongated leaves and three claws on each. It has two lines running down the middle of its back.
Sceptile evolves from Grovyle starting at level 43.
It agilely leaps about the jungle and uses the sharp leaves on its arms to strike its prey.
