Sceptile's appearance is based on a lizard. Its neck is somewhat long, and has two crests on its head. Skeptile's eyes are semicircular with yellow scleras and red rims. Sceptile's lower jaw is also colored red, and there is a belt-like band of red coloration on its waist. There is a thin stripe across Sceptile's chest, somewhat resembling the shape of the letter V. Sceptile's plant-like characteristics include the six yellow nodules, described as seeds on its back (similar in appearance to the nodules on leguminous plants that are able to take in nitrogen from the air) and a palm-tree-branch-like tail. Sceptile's arms are long and have 2 thick, sharp, powerful, elongated leaves, and three claws on each. It also has two lines running down the middle of its back.
