sceptile is shit

sceptile is underappreciated

I was never really a fan until ORAS when I realized I'd never used him so I picked him

no regrets

dont mean to intrude but why cant he be replaying or exactly? its been out for years
>>
>>25082435
Not him, but he doesn't like ORAS.
>>

>>
>>25082420
>>25082441
>>25082467
Not any of the people in this reply chain but I would always end up replaying ORAS if I just wanted a quick playthrough, but I probably wouldn't anyway. This board ruined Hoenn for me entirely.
>>
>>25082474
Quick? The playthrough is longer than Kalos as a POR.
>>
>>25082543
Well what I mean is if I just wanted to go through the main story.
>>
>>25082550
That is what I meant too. Wasn't talking about Delta or anything. Just up to E4.
>>
>>25082603
Okay I need to elaborate, which I wasn't on purpose because this board does the same fucking song and dance for way too long but ok.

I feel no compelling reason to go play Emerald for the main story. The Frontier is good even if I only enjoy half of it, but the gym rematches, though the way they work is immersive, are underleveled for postgame standards a good chunk of the time and the maingame feels about the same

>But there's double battles with EXTRA MONS
Save a couple, that's just some extra EXP yield from one-shotting with SE moves.
>But trick house
I tried to care. I tried, but I just kept thinking "I just wanna beat this game already".
>But gym/E4 teams
The only major difference to me are the twins, and Juan. Besides, ORAS actually kept Drake's Emerald Kingdra while replacing the Shelgon instead of one of the two Flygon.
Meanwhile in ORAS sure I have to deal with May being an annoying as fuck shitter for the first bunch of the game or so but I've got the updated mechanics, and most importantly DexNav. I loved using it to get egg moves and found it to be one of my favorite features ever put into Pokemon.

Exploring mirage islands and past areas for lategame team tweaks is fun for me as well, though I don't appreciate the idea of grinding something up to E4 levels.

Victory Road having National Dex trainers was also something I found to be really cool. I mean Delta Episode is crap, and seeing the Maison again is a blunder, but it still felt nice to me.

There. NOW you know what I mean I hope, I'm bad at explaining things now prepare for someone to post a greentext of there's no [x] and that I'm an apologist or some shit because I didn't hate one Pokemon game, when there's actually plenty I dislike. I was trying to avoid it, but now we can't stop it.
>>
>>25082651
Your post is incoherent. I'm not annoyed by opinions but if you cant explain them it's a pain, especially when they try which you seemed to but went off on a random tanget. No one was talking about Emerald except you. It was a simple Hoenn playthrough is longer than Kalos.
>>
>>25082692
I'll just put it all as short as I can. If I didn't want to do any postgame, there is nothing that makes me want to replay any Hoenn game but ORAS. I said "quick" so as to not get the thread derailed, but at this point if it is, that's on me.

I'm sorry about the tangent, but I consider Emerald in the mix all the time. This board has pretty much ruined me. I have a fucked up obsession with trying to prove people wrong because they won't shut the fuck up about this fucking game. It's the same fucking shit and then HURHUR U SUK MASUDA DICK XD, I actually started going to /v/ to get away from all this and then at times even they have rampart ORAS hate threads which are just the same fucking shit. I can't even enjoy Hoenn anyway, since all think of it, whether its RS, Emerald, or ORAS, is about ORAS hatewars all the time. The whole setting originally felt like a comfy tropical island to me, and now it feels like imageboard shitpostingland. I really need help, anon, I'm so sorry.
>>
>>25082727
You're ok anon. Personally I like the OR remake. Not a fan of the lack of poke distribution. First half of the game has next to nothing.
Post your penis to make you and me feel better
>>
>>25081991
Why does Gamefreak not like Sceptile?
Swampert has goat defence typing and extra +10 BST.
Blaziken has goat offensive typing and speed boost.
It just needs growth.
>>
>>25082798
>and extra +10 BST
?
>>
>>25082727
I can empathize. On the internet it really sucks being the sort of person who generally likes things. Sometimes I just go to traditional message boards where predominantly people who enjoy the game are posting.
>>
>>25081991
Swampert is the best starter, but Grovyle is the best second stage starter.

But Grovyle is the worst designed stage of the Treecko line while Sceptile is the best.
>>
>>25082404
You again.
But I cannot disagree with you.
>>
>>25082271
I think his bad rep just comes from RSE when hislevel up pool was garbage and when he couldn't be easily boosted by spammable tms.
>>
>>25082271
Well at least he got into Pokken.

I liked him in Gen 3 but after that he went downhill and even with the mega he sucks. Really wish he was better.

>>25086861
I think all he needs is Earth Power and Nasty Plot.

Mah nigga

Although I'd rather fuck his voice than him because he's a married man with a dead wife
>>
>>25086861
Let's be real...if you're playing [Alpha] Sapphire, Sceptile's the best choice to go with. Because, y'know, type advantage and all that.

Seriously, given how infamous Hoenn is for being aquatic, WHY isn't Sceptile more popular?!
>>
>>25086929
>>
>>25086929
I guess it's because even with the supposed type advantage, most of the strong water types like Milotic carry Ice Beam, anyways.
>>
>>25086940
Your oversized meme fish will NEVER EVER be in Pokken. Deal with it, faggot.
>>
>>25086951
On Sceptile's defense, 95% of Water-types used by trainers don't actually use Ice-type attacks, and those that do are swiftly taken out by an overleveled STAB Giga Drain.

>>25086957
>posts about pokken

Stay frosty.
>>
>>25086984
That guy shouldn't have posted Swampert if this is a Sceptile thread.
>>
>>25086984
This guy gets it.

>>25086868
Nah. Dragon Pulse, Leaf Blade, Leaf Storm, and Seed Bomb and you're good to go.

I think they were talking, competitively.

aww.
>>
>>25088325
This artist has done a lot of gorgeous art of various pokemon, but it's pretty telling that Sceptile has the most art. ^^
>>
>>25082798
They love Sceptile, they just don't know how to balance competitive for shit.

They tried making Sceptile highly relevant in their official format but he still stucks ass in it.
>>
>>25086657
Sceptile didn't become a meme because Sceptile sucks ass, unlike based Snivy line
>>
>>25087554
Had a female sceptile that i named Basil.
>>
>>25089071
Named my guy Treecko Basil as well. You got good taste in names pham

My pal wanted to go all edgy rival on my ass so he named his Sceptile Taragon. Which is also a spice but much edgier sounding.
>>
>>25088939
Nah, he's objectively good in competitive battles. There's just shinier Megas to use.
>>
>>25081991
I hope that Sceptile ends up being good, competitively, in Pokken Tournament. Based on the gameplay videos I've seen of him so far, he really looks like an interesting character.

Base stat, 10 points BST are 20 stat points at level 100, e.g. 404HP instead of 384.

>>25088954
ingame sceptile family >>> ingame serp senpai
competitive scep < serp
design scep = serp
>>
>>25090321

he seems to have a lot of tools but low damage.
>>
>>25090491
Speedy characters tend to be that way I fighting games. They're great at combos, but have a harder time racking up damage.
>>
>>25090557

you don't see a lot of large fast characters like that. i did see a pretty big conversion from his helm breaker thing, but he seems to be more spacing oriented than straight rushdown. actually all the projectile shit, the long range, the size, the slow air dash kind of remind me of Faust.

I named mine "Vidarr" [Old Norse...means Forest Warrior]
