Current location: With Tracey

This Scyther is a bug/flying-type Pokémon owned by Tracey.


The elderly Scyther made its first appearance in Tracey Gets Bugged where it is found by Tracey and his friends badly injured. Tracey approached to try and help it but it didn't want to be bothered with so it started growling. In order for it to get help, Tracey had his Venonat put it to sleep. The gang found out that apparently Scyther was defeated during a battle for leadership of the swarm by a younger, better conditioned Scyther after bringing it to the Pokémon Center to get healed up by Nurse Joy. It later found its former swarm being captured by Team Rocket and decided to battle the criminal's Pokémon alone despite it being five to one. In the end, it decided to go with Tracey.

In A Way Off Day Off, Scyther was introduced to the gang's Pokémon but they were a bit scared of it with the exception of Misty's Togepi who rather liked it, and Ash's Charizard who could care less and merely shot a Flamethrower at it, upsetting it.

In The Rivalry Revival, Scyther helped save Ash's Pikachu from Team Rocket before departing with its trainer from the gang as Tracey decided to study alongside Professor Oak.
