I have a sceptile I was origianlly going to use for competitve battling, but I just nought Soul Silver, and found out that the battle mechanics for physical and special attacks have changed, making my sceptile's moveset pretty useless.... have any ideas on movesets?

Currently:

(note: I have acsess to every game needed)

@miracle seed (big root?)
giga drain
leaf blade (replace it with frenzy plant? Or should I put in some other grass move, or should I just leave giga drain as my one STAB move?
dragon claw (replace it with some other dragon move, or some other type? Surf if sceptile can learn it, maybe?
Aerial Ace (replacement for quick attack, gives me even more type variety and an always hitting move... should I replace it to though?)

Should I also switch out to a different scout pokemon?

Just post your thoughts here. Also, in my team, dark, fire, fighting, and dragon should are types already covered. A lot of the other types depend on how I decide to re work my sceptile

I would rework the Sceptile making it a SubSeeder. Thus giving it two moves set in stone. If you want to keep Giga Drain you can, as Sceptile's Special Attack is higher than its Attack. Personally for a SubSeeder either Leaf Storm or Energy Ball is opted, still Giga Drain can still give you more health. If you want to have a Dragon move and don't want to split EVs, go with either Dragon Pulse or Dragonbreath. Pulse for power, and breath for the paralysis chance. This way your Sceptile should look like this.

Sceptile@BigRoot/Leftovers
EVs 216 HP/ 40 Special Attack/ 252 Speed
Timid Nature
Ability Overgrow
Moves Substitute
Leech Seed
Giga Drain/Leaf Storm/Energy Ball
Dragon Pulse/Dragonbreath/Hidden Power [Ice] (If you have the IVs for a decent powered HP [Ice]
