Well I’m still looking for TRU Darkrai. If you are reading this and feel like helping me out feel free to e-mail me. I’ll trade u well for it. Same goes for Gamestop Deoxys. Thanks =)


Happy 4th of July folks! I hope you are having a nice summer time as you read this one. This week we’ll review Scyther because I wanted to prove that a not fully evolved Pokémon is still a decent one. It is underused yeah, but it is capable of doing great things, and I want to show that today. It has good speed and attack stats and it’s even capable of raising them. Scyther is not inferior to Scizor, let’s discover that…


The movesets for today are…


Physical Sweeper.
Scyther@Salac Berry.
Nature: Adamant (+Attack, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Speed / 252 Attack / 6 HP.
- X-Scissor
- Aerial ace
- Return / Swords dance
- Night slash / Swords dance


Use technician with this one. The first two attacks are good damage. Swords dance is a good move if you can predict switches or manage to get that extra turn, so if you are an experienced trainer try swords dance, if you don’t like the risk then sweep as hard as you can.


Endure user.
Scyther@Salac Berry / Lum berry.
Nature: Adamant (+Attack, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Speed / 252 Attack / 6 HP.
- X-Scissor
- Aerial ace
- Endure
- Reversal


Attack as much as you can, then use endure and reversal. Use swarm ability with this set.


Choice bander.
Scyther@Choice band.
Nature: Adamant (+Attack, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Speed / 252 Attack / 6 HP.
- X-Scissor / Silver wind
- Aerial ace
- HP rock
- Steel wing / Quick attack


Hit and run. Simple and effective choice bander, it is important to switch and watch out for faster Pokémon, as Scyther’s defenses are not the best.



As I said, it is not very common to see this one on a competitive environment, but it is always great playing casually.



High defense rock types as Rhyperior and Armaldo are good. Fast flying types will do massive damage (Hello Staraptor) and most fire types will be effective as well.


Bottom line.

Happy 4th of July once again, I hope you have/had a nice day, as always…





Hope you enjoyed.
