Grovyle (Japanese: ジュプトル Juptile) is a Grass-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Treecko starting at level 16 and evolves into Sceptile starting at level 36.

Biology

Grovyle is a bipedal Pokémon similar in appearance to a theropod dinosaur. It is primarily green with a red underside. There is belt-like green stripe across its belly. Grovyle's hands have two clawed fingers, and powerful legs with bird-like feet. Its well-developed muscles make it an expert climber and allow it to leap quickly from branch to branch. Grovyle has three long leaves on its wrists, a large leaf on top of its head, and two tails that have a leafy appearance. This leafy appearance allows it to be camouflaged in the forests where it lives. These leaves are also used in its former signature move, Leaf Blade.

In the anime

Major appearances

Grovyle in the anime

Ash's Grovyle

Ash has a Sceptile that he caught as a Treecko in Tree's a Crowd. It evolved into Grovyle in Exploud and Clear, and in Odd Pokémon Out, it reached its final form.

Grovyle (Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky)

Grovyle also appeared in the anime adaption of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness. Despite having a large role in the games, he only appeared briefly in the beginning of the episode, stealing one of the Time Gears. He has a much bigger role in the Explorers of Sky special.

Other

Grovyle first appeared in What You Seed is What You Get. It was owned by a Pokémon Trainer named Natasha that works at a watermelon field.

Minor appearances

A Grovyle was used by one of the participants of Pokémon Ping Pong Tournament in To Thine Own Pokémon Be True!.

AG066 Grovyle Ash's Pokédex Grovyle, the Wood Gecko Pokémon. Grovyle is well known for its dexterity in the treetops, as it is often seen jumping from branch to branch. Even the fastest of Pokémon cannot catch a Grovyle in wooded areas.

In the manga

Grovyle in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Emerald's Sceptile

The Treecko meant to be handed to Emerald was recovered by Wally and became a Grovyle to rescue his temporary owner when a wild Dusclops threatened to suck them into its infinite cavity. After a few more weeks of training at the Sky Pillar under Norman, it was able to awaken the ancient legendary Pokémon Rayquaza, but the huge gust of wind sent it flying miles away into a distant island where it evolved again to a Sceptile and was this time caught by Guile Hideout, who smuggled it into the Battle Factory to try to drive the nosy press away. It ended up being stolen by its legitimate owner, Emerald, and became a fixed member of his team.

Emerald had also used a Grovyle during his Factory challenge.

Trivia

Origin

Bulbanews

Appearance-wise, it resembles the dinosaur known as the Dromaeosaurus. It is believed that the dinosaur had feathers much like how Grovyle has leaves on its body. Its design could be based on a Protarchaeopteryx.

Name origin

Grovyle is a combination of grove (a group of trees) and reptile. Vyle may also possibly refer to vine or vile.

Juptile is based on jungle or 樹 ju (tree) and reptile or raptor.
