    Default Sceptile vs Torterra

    Sceptile vs Torterra

    VS


    Hoenn versus Sinnoh. Sceptile and Torterra were arguably the two most popular Grass Starters before Jaroda showed up.

    They're also pretty much on opposite sides of the spectrum. Sceptile is mono typed, fast, has a very wide movepool and prefers Special attacks whereas Torterra is dual typed, bulky, has a decent to shallow movepool and prefers physical attacks.

    Opposites indeed.

    Who do you prefer?

    Who's more useful?

    Who'd win in a fight?

    I'm inclined to give my vote to Sceptile here. He wins by a microscopic margin. Mostly, I just like it's typing better and it does break the Grass Starter mold by being fast isntead of bulky. Torterra just goes back to that mold. Also, Sceptile would win in a fight hands down, so yeah. Still, gotta love Torterra and it's world turtle myth.

    Other Sceptile matchups:

    Venusaur vs Sceptile

    Meganium vs Sceptile

    Sceptile vs Jaroda

    Other Torterra Starter matchups:

    Venusaur vs Torterra

    Meganium vs Torterra

    Torterra vs Jaroda

    Sceptile. That fast Choice Specs Leaf Storm has really been something to watch out for in UU.

    Sceptile without a doubt.

    Sceptile can defeat Torterra with Leaf Storm/HP Ice.

    I've always liked Sceptile's design. His speed helps, as well.

    Sceptile. He's my favorite grass starter, he's super fast and pretty strong.

    Sceptile still is the most popular grass type starter, even with Jaroda.

    I chose Sceptile, needless to say.

    Torterra, by both design and usefulness. Besides, I'm a fan of the "world turtle" idea, and I never really had a fondness for Sceptile.

    Who's more useful? Torterra, because it can be a tank and supporter

    Who would win? Sceptile. Hell yes

    Which one I prefer? Tie :B

    for this one im gonna have to go with sceptile in terms of beating torterra and overall efficiency.

    in terms of battle use: torterra.

    looks: sceptile.+ move pool. the only thing torterra has that sceptile really needs is woodhammer if you ask me.

    looks-torterra
    battle between the two-could go either way
    a special tank torterra could absorb any attack but HP ice and probably KO with stone edge-but im not sure, and too lazy to rn calcs.
    overall battling-cannt go wrong with super strong STAB eq, so definetly torterra
    overall-torterra
    ^Thanks Blazeaking Ex!
