Part 1: Know about Scyther in Pokémon Go

Scyther is Pokémon number 123 and is quite rare to find. It evolves into Scizor when you trade a metal coat that you are holding. Here are a few details about Scyther.

Pokémon Scyther


Scyther is a bug that looks like a Praying Mantis but has a bipedal stance. It has green as the major color, which is broken up by cream sections separating the head, thorax, and abdomen. The female Scyther has a larger abdomen than the male. The head looks almost reptilian with the narrow flat head.

Scyther gets its name from the two large scythes that it has in the form of hands. It uses the scythes for fighting and hunting. It bears furry spikes on its legs and large clawed toes. It also has wings on the back for flying, but it rarely does so.

The green color of the Scyther is great for hiding in the grass as it waits for prey. It moves very fast and the prey has very little chance of survival once Scyther launches an attack. It also cuts through hard objects to sharpen the scythes. The main habitat for Scyther is the grasslands and becomes very angry when it sees the color red.

Scizor is another insect-like Pokémon, which has a red, metallic exoskeleton. The wings are gray and retract when not in use. It has three horns on its kite-like head. It has exposed black parts around the neck and the thorax. The feet have one large claw at the front and another at the back.

Part 2: Where are the Pokémon Go Scyther nests in my area?

As mentioned earlier, Scyther is found in Grasslands; it is predominant in the United States, namely, California, Florida, Texas, Georgia, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Utah, South Carolina, and Maryland.

Here are some of the maps that you can use to find Scyther. Each of them gives you current updated information supplied by other users.
