Sceptile, The Forest Pokémon. The leaves growing on it's body are very sharp edged. It's very agile, it leaps all over trees and branches and jumps on it's foes from above. It has seeds growing on it's back. They are said to be bursting with nutrients that revitalise trees. It raises the Tree's in it's forest with loving care.

Strategy Using Sceptile

The first thing I noticed about Sceptile is its high speed and special attack.
Sceptile's movepool is quite decent as well, and can be used as a Annoyer, Special sweeper or Physical sweeper (even though this is much weaker than the special sweeper)
Leaf blade is probably the best move(aside from a sunnyday/Solarbeam combo) it can learn for its special sweeping moveset, since its base power is 105 after the increase from STAB, with a high chance of a critical hit.
Crunch, Dragon claw and HP Fire (or water if you want to cover its fire weakness, or HP Electric if you want to cover its flying weakness) are for sweeping purposes.
Toxic (or possibly Leech seed) could be used in replace of Hidden Power. Sceptile has certainly been given a much more varied movepool than most grass pokemon.
Nothing much else can be said about Sceptile, take note of the EV placements as they will increase the stats he will be using the most. With 120 base speed, you may find that you do not need the timid nature so go with modest.
If you think that Sceptile doesn't need an increase in Speed or special attack via an attached item, you might want to give it a lum berry to prevent any potential status damage

EV Corner:

Max out the EVs in Special Attack & Speed for Sceptile with any remaining in Special Defense

Strategy Against Sceptile

Sceptile' Defenses are about average but it's Physical is lower so a Physical Volley or a Fire/Ice Volley should work.
