sceptile kinda is, but is not longer is one of my favorites.

back in gen 3 i couldnt play without using sceptile. tried once or twice but always ended up resetting and starting off with treecko. at first i wasnt a huge fan of sceptile. i mean i loved treecko, and grovile got me really excited for what the stage three would be. i think i was expecting it to turning into a grass/flying type, i envisioned the line to end up as.... well think a very grass type archeops. but sceptile did grow on me (even though his tale is still weird to me)

then gen 4 kinda ruined him, i mark sceptile as one of the pokemon most hurt by the special/physical attack split. i think its a safe bet that most people that transferred their sceptile from gen 3 to four suddenly found that the 4 moves their sceptile had went from supporting the higher of its two attack stats to the lower of the two. it may be a special attacker, but its safe to say the moves it was built to use where physical.

gen 5 didnt fix this oversite. and since then i have found other grass types to love. sceptile will always be remembered fondly, but at the same time, he isnt what he once was, and honestly i will be very happy for the day that they "fix" him

I think some Pokémon got the shaft, but others got a good boost. Sceptile got the short end of the stick on this one. But others, like Gengar, got lucky.

Mine sucked so i boxed it (modest nature)

Though it would've kicked *** in gen III with that nature.

Only in gen 3? Because there was no split yet?

But i think mines stats just suck. It got slayed by everything

Yeah, using Treecko or Grovyle was difficult. Everything seemed to KO it like it was nothing. Then I got to Sceptile with Dragon Claw and a couple other moves and it crushed everything.
However history remembers me, it shall only remember a fraction of the truth.
