With an Iron Ball, Sceptile can't revenge any of the common threats you would want it to, such as LO Galvantula, Kabutops and probably some others.
mmm... What about fling+ironball+hitmonlee (unburden)
fling with iron ball inflicts massive damage, so even though it is one time thing, it still is very dangerous, and the unburden boost is worth it.
I'm also surprised no one has considered the viability of gem-onlee. Would that work?
