Is this pronounced as in 'sceptic' or more like 'septic'? Perhaps specifying pronunciation for Pokémon species where it's not obvious would be useful. Punkrockrevel 13:22, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

I say "sep-tile." TTEchidna 06:49, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

I pronounce it Skep-tile. The anime pronounces it Sep-tile. --Kimori Geckarbor Hinoarashi 23:04, 14 October 2009 (UTC) Kimori Geckarbor Hinoarashi Kimori-Hinoarashi

Fastest Starter?

Out of all the starting pokemon, wouldn't Sceptile be the fastest with a base stat of 120? Just wondering. --Nidokingdood

Well, Scepty's an evolution of a starter... but I do think you're right that base-stat-wise, it is the fastest of all final forms. Why not check it out. TTEchidnaFire echyGSDS! 23:23, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
I think Sceptile and Infernape are like, the only fast starters. Kinda sucks. Infernape has a base Speed stat of 108 (Or something.) so that'd make Sceptile the fastest. Tina δ 23:26, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

english name suggestion

Logically the name of the final evolution would follow the same rules as the previous forms. In this case plant-reptile compound word. there is a type of plant known as a scepa, or a scepinae. this seems more likely to be the true inspiration than the current etymology for sceptile. - unsigned comment from Saffahh (talkcontribs)

Not quite what the guy above is talking about, but it fit under this header. Anyways, to expand upon the "based on Sceptridium" theme, does anyone else think that the yellow balls on Sceptile's back are somewhat reminiscent of Sori? Just my take on that. - Zeofar 03:13, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Sceptile's Tail

Well,I think that it's tail is rather based of a pine tree than a palm tree.Palm tree leaves have rather different formations.Well,that's how I look at it.

PS:Everyone I know(including me)says SKEP-TILE - unsigned comment from Uxie legend (talkcontribs)

Looks more like an evergreen(like a xmas tree) to me. 67h5r6h 22:25, 18 July 2010 (UTC)67h5r6h

I was thinking that Sceptile's tail looks more like a fern plant. The yellow orbs on its back could be the sporangium that are found on fern plants. I'm not sure about it being a legume, though. Fimbulwinter2012 03:44, 30 October 2010 (UTC)


Yay! My first edit! In case you need my edit about the Nitrogen in legminous plants fact-checked, its called "Biological N₂ Fixation." --Kimori Geckarbor Hinoarashi 17:31, 4 October 2009 (UTC) Kimori Geckarbor Hinoarashi

Color change in BW?

Is it just me, or did Sceptile's sprite turn into a darker green in Black and White? If it's not just me, is that trivia-worthy? S and T 07:17, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Generally changes like that in sprites aren't considered trivia-worthy, sorry. --ZestyCactus 07:46, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
