Hey it's Sceptile, my favorite starter! The little green lizard got a new toy from the dream world recently, Unburden. This may not seem too improtant, as Sceptile outspeeds just about everything in the tier not scarfed, but with its diverse movepool, great Special Attack and feasible Attack stats, Sceptile can be a huge threat in UU
Here are some sample sets
New Physical Sceppy
EVs: 252 Hp/252 Atk/4 Spe
Okok before you scoff at the odd EV spread, think about the ability, Unburden. With an Adamant Nature and 4 Spe EVs, thanks to its natural lighning speed, Sceptile reaches 277 Speed. Leafblade with the Grass gem both activates the ability, giving Sceptile 554 Speed and packs a punch. Now you outspeed everything, and can sweep with a base 110 Acrobatics, EQ, and SD. Max Attack EVs are needed to pack the most punch, and the remaining EVs into HP to add to his sub-par defences, to make him live longer.
Sceptile @ Life Orb
Evs: 252 Sp Atk/252 Spe/4HP
This set is an old set using Sceptile's wonderful base 105 Special Attack. Overgrow over Unburden because Life orb wont go away, and Timid to be super fast. Evs are pretty self-explanatory. Leaf Storm is great for revenge killing and hitting things hard, the boosted base 75 power Giga Drain is a great way to heal off some LO recoil and hit things, and HP Ice or Fire and FB are for coverage.
These are just two Sceptile sets, and with its wide movepool there are many more, including subseeder and mixed attacking sets. Discuss the Forest Pokemon
