Sceptile -- Rainy day Review -- 254

Sceptile! Probably my favorite grass starter, and not too bad for the rainy season.
His Grass typing like Venusaur gives him resistance to Fire, yet opens him up to Water, so his only real problem there, is he needs to be fast enough to take out those deadly water types. Lets see what he's got for us.


Sceptile (M) @ Water Gem

Trait: Unburden

EVs: 228 Atk / 176 SAtk / 4 SDef / 100 Spd

Lonely Nature (+Atk, -Def)

- Leaf Storm
- Hidden Power [Water]
- Acrobatics
- Rock Slide

The problem with Sceptile, is even though he's great mixed, and he's amazing with his Speed, his attacking stats are Mediocre. So he needs something to boost all of his moves up.

Leaf Storm gets STAB and has 140 power, so it's safe to say we don't have to do much there, HP Water gets the rain boost, and the boost from his Water Gem, ( After being used, it doubles his speed aswell ). Acrobatics gets a boost in it's power from him not holding an item anymore ( Yayz! ) and Rock Slide has a high Flinch rate so he might be able to get several hits in, and on top of that covers all of his weaknesses in one move. Sweet stuff right there.


Sceptile (M) @ Focus Sash

Trait: Overgrow

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

- Giga Drain
- Hidden Power [Water]
- Focus Blast
- Counter

This may look pathetic, but it's umm... It's a Sceptile that isn't mixed! That was what I was looking for.
Giga Drain can get you some Hp back from something Like Rock's that broke your sash, and maybe even OHKO something if it's super effective, he can really boss out some water types trying to make use of your rain >:]
HP Water gets that Rain boosts, and has good coverage. Focus Blast is coverage aswell, and counter makes use of your sash and insanely low defense. And Also when it gets you down to low Hp, you get an Overgrow boost, which is really epic.

Overall, he's pretty decent in the rain, HP water helps him out a bit, and gives him some better coverage in there.

Rating for the rain - 6.5 / 10
