Because Sceptile has a focus on speed, and this prevents Thunder Wave from effecting it with a couple of nice bonuses like blocking volt switch.I believe that -Green- was referring to Curse, rather than a base stat change to lower Swampert's speed.
Also, I'm really confused at Sceptile's ability. Why in the world would it need an Electric immunity (when it's already 4x resistant to Electric) or a potential Special Attack boost (when almost all of its level-up moves are Physical).
I thin it was confirmed in the corocoro issue that the team you fight is dependent on the version.I wonder if the story will be like Emerald where you have to fight both teams. If not, I am going with Alpha Sapphire. I love Team Aqua and how badass does Archie look? Kyogre is also the king of ubers.
