Scyther is a Bug/Flying dual-type Pokémon. It evolves into Scizor through unknown method possibly involving Metal Coat.

Pokédex entry

Pokédex entry
Its blindingly fast speed adds to the sharpness of its twin forearm scythes. The scythes can slice through thick logs in one wicked stroke.

Biology

(From Bulbapedia)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 Scyther despises the color red, and becomes aggressive when confronted with this color. Although it is rare, Scyther can be found in grasslands.

Trivia

Design Origin

(From Bulbapedia)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

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