Pokemon GO: How To Get Mega Sceptile, Counters, Weakness

In Pokémon GO, the Season of Hidden Gems has started. Mega Swampert and the Lake Trio were featured in Tier Five Raids and Mega Raids respectively to start off the rotation. Now that Mega Sceptile has taken over Mega Raids and Nihilego has invaded Tier Five raids with a Shiny release, things are changing.

The Mega Evolved form of Sceptile is known as Mega Sceptile, and it is one of the strongest Grass-type Mega Pokémon in Pokémon Go. Because it is the last evolution of the Hoenn starting Treecko, this form is widely popular. In Pokémon Go, Mega Swampert, Mega Blaziken and Mega Sceptile deliver incredibly potent choices.
