Is Energy ball worth it for Sceptile?

3 votes

I have a Sceptile in my Heart Gold and It knows Leaf Blade, Leaf Storm, slam, and Giga Drain. I'm thinking about breeding it and training a Treecko without evolving it until it learns energy ball and then evolving it into a Sceptile. But if I did this, Sceptile wouldn't ever get Leaf blade. But then again, since Sceptile has higher sp. attack than attack, than Energy ball would be stronger right? Please help me decide!

Actualy, you don't have to decide. If you do have your Treeko learn Energy Ball, once evolved to a Sceptile you can make it remember Leaf Blade. If you can't get ahold of what you need to make them remember on whatever version you're playing, I would go with Energy Ball because Sceptile's base attack is 20 lower than it's base special attack.
