Sceptile used Leaf Blade by Kiriko-Windgeist

Kiriko-Windgeist is one of the German artists that participated in our Pokémon Tribute in 2016 and also returned when we announced the Generation II Project. She drew the male Nidoran as well as Ekans in 2016 and continued with the majestic Ho-Oh in 2017! In 2018 she was the first artist that joined our Generation III Tribute only 15 minutes after the project started officially. She drew Sceptile also on the 1st January and submitted it at around 2:30 PM. In return we created this gallery also as the first one for the new Project 🙂

Like myself she likes Wolves and animals in general and created a lot of art related to these beautiful beings which you can see here!


Leaf Blade

“The user handles a sharp leaf like a sword and attacks by cutting its target. Critical hits land more easily.”

The Leaf Blade is one of the Grass-Type attacks that were introduced in the Generation III games. It has no special side effects but a high chance of inflicting critical damage. Its power Rating was 70 in the Gen III games but it was increased to 90 from Gen IV up to the most recent Pokemon games.

The first Pokemon using it in our tribute was Sceptile and Leaf Blade is the signature move to both it and it’s previous evolution, Grovyle.  This move can be learnt by either evolution at level 29 (23 since Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire).

Sceptile using Dragon Claw by 13alrog

13alrog joined GA-HQ last year and our Pokémon Gen I Tribute was the main reason I guess. But later he also participated in our July 2016 Art Challenge with a take on Vega (Balrog in Japan btw.) in his design from Street Fighter V. The theme of this challenge was to draw video games that were released in 2016.

He drew not less than twelve Pokemon for our three Collaborations so far!

I recommend to visit his gallery on dA as well which you can find here!

Dragon Claw

“Sharp, huge claws hook and slash the foe quickly and with great power”

The Dragon Claw move is a strong attack that deals physical damage and has no side-effects. it was introduced in the Pokémon Generation III games and one that can be learnt naturally by some Pokemon and through TM to others.

It is a Dragon type move with a power of 80 and accuracy of 100% and one that makes physical contact when hitting a Pokemon. Sceptile can only learn Dragon Claw through being taught it by TM02.

254 Sceptile

“In the jungle, its power is without equal. This Pokémon carefully grows trees and plants. It regulates its body temperature by basking in sunlight.”

Sceptile is a grass-type Pokémon and the final form of Pokémon Ruby / Sapphire / Emerald starter Treecko, being able to evolve from Grovyle at level 36.  Much like its earlier forms, forests and jungles are its natural habitats.

Just like Grovyle, it can move and jump quickly across the trees – but the leaves on its arms now have sharp edges, making it deadly in combat.  The leaves on the arms are said to be able to cut thick trees down and attack its prey, while the leaves on the legs were reported to be as sharp as swords.  It isn’t all aggression though – Sceptile also cultivates seeds on its body, which are used to care for and revitalize nearby plants.  All this and it looks out for its body temperature by lounging in sunlight.

Ash’s Treecko eventually evolved into Sceptile during the Battle Frontier arc of the animé.  It didn’t start off well though – having failed to win over a Meganium while it was a Grovyle, it spent the first part of its run unable to use any moves due to a broken heart.  Eventually, it re-learnt some of its past moves as well as new moves like Solar Beam and continued to be a formidable companion for Ash.
