    Depends on whether Sceptile are normally carnivorous or not. While some Pokemon are more obviously carnivorous than others (you certainly wouldn't want to be stalked by a pack of wild Luxray or Houndoom), Sceptile's taste in food has not been clarified.

    I always imagined it was a vegetarian because of its beak-like mouth and grass typing. I bet it could if it wanted to, but it would probably have trouble digesting a person. Its stomach may not be complex enough for meat, and almost certainly not for bones.

    Also I don't think it could swallow an adult whole either. It's mouth and neck are too narrow and its body is just too small for that.

    Depends if it has a taste for manflesh.

    Taken from Sceptile's HGSS Dex entrie: It agilely leaps about the jungle and uses the sharp leaves on its arms to strike its prey.

    I say it's possible seeing how their just as tall as a human, not to mention the fact that they have leaves on their arms that are sharper then swords.

    Maybe it just likes violently attacking fruit. Ok, you have a good point. It might be carnivorous

    I'd say its improbable, but not impossible.

    Good point, "prey" isn't a word typically associated with eating plants. And many reptiles are generally carnivorous....

    It could also be an omnivore as well. We really don't know. But it could very well develop a taste for human flesh; some older lions become man-eaters because they aren't able to take down their usual prey. It could be a similar case with Sceptile. (Could make for a neat creepypasta, now that I think about it.)

    Sceptiles don't exist in the wild, as far as we know.
    Computer: There's an e-mail message! ... The 3 legendary bird POKéMON are ARTICUNO, ZAPDOS, and MOLTRES. Their whereabouts are unknown. We plan to explore the cavern close to CERULEAN.

    That couldn't have ended well.

    It's Dex entry indicate that they do exist in the wild, also the Anime and the Ranger series made it clear that wild starter Pokemon do exist in special areas where catching Pokemon is illegal.

    Not to mention Pro. Oak in GSC/HGSS referred to the player's starter as "A Rare Pokemon" so apparently starter do exist in the wild.

    It is possible. But I can name pokemons that looks more able to eat you than Sceptail.

    I think a human would be good for at least 2 or 3 Sceptile meals. Which bring to mind the question - how much does a Steelix need to eat per day?
