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

It evolves into Scizor when traded holding a Metal Coat.

Biology

Scyther is a bipedal, insectoid creature. It is primarily green with cream accents between its three body segments. On the back of its somewhat reptilian head are three points, and it has narrow eyes. Its forearms consist of large, white scythes, which it uses for hunting as well as fighting. On its thighs are spikes of fur, and it has three clawed toes on its large feet. Two pairs of cream-colored wings extend from its back. While these wings do allow Scyther to fly, it is rarely seen doing so. The abdomen of a female will be slightly larger than that of the male.

 

Scyther's blade-like forearms are capable of slicing through logs, and become sharper by cutting through hard materials. Using swift movements, it camouflages itself and enhances the effectiveness of its scythes. The anime has shown that wild Scyther form groups. If a challenger Scyther wins a battle against the leader of the Scyther swarm, the original Scyther leader will depart and the challenger will take place as the new leader. It has also been shown that some Scyther despise the color red, and become aggressive when confronted with this color. Although it is rare, Scyther can be found in grasslands.

Trivia

  • In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Scyther's prototype name was "Stryke". This is a corruption of the word "strike", which is also its romanized Japanese name.
  • Despite having different base stats, Scyther and its evolution, Scizor, both have a base stat total of 500. This makes Scyther the only pre-evolutionary form that has the same base stat total as its evolution.
  • Scyther can be seen as a parallel to Pinsir. Both of them are Bug-type Generation I Pokémon. Scyther is exclusive to Pokémon RedFireRed and Diamond, while Pinsir is exclusive to Pokémon BlueLeafGreen and Pearl.
  • Scyther and Scizor, along with Pinsir, are the only Pokémon legitimately available in all 27 in-game Poké Ball variants.

Origin

Scyther draws much inspiration from a praying mantis and more likely mantidflies based on its agile mobility. However, its face is more reptilian, with similarities to dinosaurs and dragons.

Name origin

Scyther is a combination of scythe and the suffix -er, in reference to its sharp blades.

Strike is literally strike.
