Grovyle (Japanese: ジュプトル Juptile) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Treecko starting at level 16 and evolves into Sceptile starting at level 36.

Contents

Biology

Grovyle is a bipedal Pokémon similar in appearance to a theropod dinosaur. It is primarily green with a red underside. There is a belt-like green stripe across its belly. Grovyle's hands have two clawed fingers, and powerful legs with bird-like feet. Its well-developed muscles make it an expert climber and allow it to leap quickly from branch to branch. Grovyle has three long leaves on its wrists, a large leaf on top of its head, and two tails that have a leafy appearance. This leafy appearance allows it to be camouflaged in the forests where it lives. These leaves are also used in its former signature move, Leaf Blade.

In the manga

In the Ash & Pikachu manga

Main article: Ash's Grovyle

Ash owns a Grovyle in Ash & Pikachu.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Emerald's Sceptile

The Treecko meant to be handed to Emerald was recovered by Wally and became a Grovyle in Dreadful Dealing with Dusclops to rescue his temporary owner when a wild Dusclops threatened to suck them into its infinite cavity. After a few more weeks of training at the Sky Pillar under Norman, he was able to awaken the ancient legendary Pokémon Rayquaza, but the huge gust of wind sent him flying miles away into a distant island where he evolved again to a Sceptile and was this time caught by Guile Hideout, who smuggled him into the Battle Factory to try to drive the nosy press away. He ended up being stolen by his legitimate owner, Emerald, and became a fixed member of his team.

Emerald had borrowed a Grovyle during his Factory challenge in Pinsir Me, I Must Be Dreaming, it should not be confused with his Sceptile. This Grovyle, like the other Factory Pokémon, is at level 50.

Appearance-wise, Grovyle resembles the dinosaur known as the Dromaeosaurus. It is believed that the dinosaur had feathers, much like how Grovyle has leaves on its body - the leaves on its tail are especially similar to the tails of Epidexipteryx, which only had short tails that supported much larger feathers. Its design could be based on a Protarchaeopteryx. Like the other members of its evolutionary line, Grovyle's design shares some similarities with the leaf-tailed gecko, a species of lizard that blends in with plant-like appendages.

Name origin

Grovyle is a combination of grove (a group of trees) and reptile. Vyle may also possibly refer to vine or vile.

Juptile is based on jungle or 樹 ju (tree) and reptile or raptor.
