    This set is assuming a singles format. Protect hast to be in there somewhere.

    This is the right way to export a Smogon set:

    Sceptile @ Sceptilite
    Ability: Overgrow
    EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    Timid Nature
    - Leaf Storm
    - Dragon Pulse
    - Giga Drain
    - Hidden Power Fire

    Mega Sceptile actually seems pretty interesting as a Koko counter. Maybe pairing it with something like Gyarados which is quad-weak to Electric to be able to counter it would be good (although I don't really know the VGC meta atm LOL). I'm not entirely sure if Ice types themselves are still a part of the meta other than Pokemon that just use Ice Beam (Cresselia, Tapu Fini), but I dunno.

    Here's an example moveset:
    Sceptile @ Sceptilite
    Ability: Overgrow
    EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    Timid Nature
    - Leaf Storm (STAB)
    - Dragon Pulse (STAB)
    - Protect
    - Hidden Power Ice (To deal with Landorus)

    actual ice types are rare and few---too many weaknesses
