Scyther (Japanese: ストライク Sutoraiku) is a Bug/Flying-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Scyther 3

Dream World Scyther

Scyther is a Mantis Pokémon. It is green with two wings that enable flight. It has two razor-sharp scythes for arms.

Natural abilities

Scyther can have the ability Swarm or the ability Technician. Swarm increases Scyther's Bug-type moves by 1.5x when its HP is lower than 1/3. Technician increases the power of moves under 60 attack power. Scyther's most impressive feature is its scythe-like arms that can easily cut through metal. Scyther is also known for its agility. While hunting in the wild or in a battle between trainers, it relies on its speed to strike quickly and to avoid being struck in return by its foe. Its high-supernatural speed can make it seem to be in more than one place at once, or to seem invisible as it moves in, strikes, and leaves the opponent before he can feel the blow. Scyther's wings are capable of flight, but this is rare; it is not a fast or an agile flier, and it is a better hunter on its own feet.

Difference in Gender

The difference between a male and female Scyther is by the size of its abdomen. The females will be a bit larger than the males.

Evolution

Scyhter evolves into Scizor when traded while holding Metal Coat.

Main article: Tracey's Scyther

In the anime, Tracey catches a Scyther in the Orange Islands. It is aged and was recently removed from command of its clan by a younger, stronger Scyther. The bug Pokémon reconcile their differences through the interference of Team Rocket, and Tracey's Scyther is allowed to leave with him with its conflicts fully resolved. Tracey's elderly Scyther (similar to Master Splinter from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) is incredibly strong-willed, preferring to keep watch over the travelers while they sleep, as opposed to staying in its Poké Ball.

In the episode Showdown at Dark City, two gangs were fighting in a dusty town. The leader of one team had an Electabuzz while the other had a Scyther. When Ash poured ketchup barrels on both Pokémon, they locked into each other in a death grip, meaning that Scyther and Electabuzz are possibly provoked by the color red.

Trivia

  • Its English name was originally going to be Stryke, as revealed in the 1999 Nintendo Official Magazine Pokémon Special #2.
  • Although Scyther is provoked by the color red, it obviously loses this trait when it evolves, because its evolutionary form, Scizor, is red.
  • It is the only Pokémon that changes from a Flying-type to another during evolution (in this case, it's Steel).
  • In Generation I, Scyther was a counterpart to Pinsir. Both were the strongest Bug-type Pokémon prior to Generation II. Both were version exclusive in Red & Blue and had no evolutionary lines. They also had the same BST with the same Special Attack stat. Every since the introduction of Scizor, the main similarities were broken.
