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 Pokémon. It is primarily green with thin, cream-colored sections between its head, thorax, and abdomen. The abdomen of a female will be slightly larger than that of a male. It has narrow eyes and three points on the back of its somewhat reptilian head. 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 rarely does so.

Scyther is an adept hunter that tears at its prey with its scythes. Its green coloration gives in excellent camouflage in the grass, and its quick movement is too fast to follow and increases the effectiveness of its scythes. Its movements are said to be similar to a ninja. By cutting through hard objects, it keeps its arms sharp. It can also sharpen its scythes through battling as well. It can cut down a massive tree with just a single slice. The anime has shown that wild Scyther form swarms. A new leader is elected when the current leader is defeated in a fight against a challenger; the former leader then leaves the swarm and goes into exile as a result. It has also been shown that Scyther becomes aggressive when faced with the color red. Although it is rare, Scyther can be found in grasslands or forested areas where it cut down many trees.

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 evolved form both have a base stat total of 500. This makes Scyther the only pre-evolved form to have the same base stat total as its evolved form.
  • Scyther can be seen as a parallel to Pinsir. Both of them are Bug-type Generation I Pokémon, with base stat totals of 500 and originally no evolution family. Scyther is exclusive to Pokémon RedFireRedDiamond, and Let's Go, Pikachu!, while Pinsir is exclusive to Pokémon BlueLeafGreenPearl, and Let's Go, Eevee!.

Origin

Scyther seems to be based on the Japanese giant mantis with arms shaped like scythes. It also possesses some reptilian characteristics (e.g. teeth, claws, bipedal stance) that give it similarities to dromaeosaurid dinosaurs. As indicated in its Pokédex entries, it may also be based on a ninja.

Name origin

Scyther may be a combination of scythe and the suffix -er (something that does an action).

Strike is literally strike.
