===Special abilities===
 
Scyther can have the ability [[Swarm]] or the ability [[Technician]]. Swarm increases Scyther's {{type|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.

==In the anime==
 
In the [[Pokémon Anime|anime]], [[Tracey Sketchit]] catches a Scyther in the [[Orange Islands]]. It is aged and was recently removed from 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 [[wikipedia:Splinter (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)|Splinter]] from ''[[wikipedia:Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'') is incredibly strong-willed, preferring to keep watch over the travellers 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 Ketchum|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.

===Useful battle info===

===Sprites===
Scyther's attacking power is excellent, and it also has a very good speed stat, making it an ideal physical sweeper. Unfortunately, its special attack is very poor and its [[Statistics#Defense|Defense]] and [[Statistics#Special Defense|Special Defense]] are average. However, in [[Pokémon Diamond and Pearl|Pearl/Diamond]]/[[Pokémon Platinum|Platinum]], Scyther can use [[Shadow Claw]] ({{Type|ghost}}) [[Slash]] ({{Type|Normal}}) [[X-Scissor]] ({{Type|bug}}) and [[Wing Attack]] ({{Type|flying}}) which means it is effective against most other Pokémon (although is is recommended that you also teach it Sword's Dance). However, note that [[Evolution|evolving]] it into a [[Scizor]] will prevent it learning [[Wing Attack]] yet allow it to learn some different moves but as a Scyther it is immune to {{Type|Ground}} type attacks but as a [[Scizor]], it takes normal damage from them. Scizor is, however, immune to {{Type|Poison}} attacks.

It is questionable whether evolving Scyther is a good idea. Scizor has even higher attack and stronger defence, but Scyther has much better speed. Overall, Scyther tends to work better as a sweeper. However, Scizor's higher defence makes it more durable and more reliable. Despite this, I would recommend Scyther over Scizor.

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

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

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.

Special abilitiesEdit

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.

EvolutionEdit

Scyhter evolves into Scizor when traded while holding Metal Coat.

AnimeEdit

Main article: Tracey's Scyther

In the anime, Tracey catches a Scyther in the Orange Islands. It is aged and was recently removed from 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.

TriviaEdit

  • 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).
