Scyther is a sensational Bug and Flying-typed Pokemon. It's super common to see Scyther show up as a Red/Blue opponent. Scyther is typically seen in the UU tier (Underused). There were no known abilities or equippable items back in the Red/Blue Pokemon games. Scyther is weak to Electric, Fire, Flying, Ice, Poison, and Rock-typed attacks.
Scyther is a sensational Physical Sweeper in single battles. It is designed to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Things definately worked differently in the first generation. Remember before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Double-Edge is a physical 100-base power Normal-type move (has 1/4 recoil). ♦ Slash is a physical 70-base power Normal-type move (high critical hit ratio). ♦ Wing Attack is a physical STAB-boosted 35-base power Flying-type move that deals damage. ♦ Swords Dance is a status move (raises your Scyther's attack by 2 stages). ♦ Toxic is a status move (badly poisons the target).

Category Filter: Filter movelist to show only Physical, Special, or Status moves
Extended Move Details:Additional move information such as Risk versus Reward Statistics or Move power versus specific type-matchups
Type-matchup: Sort through and determine which moves would best work versus an opponent of the typing you select.
Note: The damage listed here under Versus is not actually calculated using the in-game damage formula. It is simply calculated using typing weaknesses and resistances from the selected type-matchup modifier along with STAB (if applied) to help sort through and give a general idea as to how powerful certain moves might be towards that selected typing after modifiers are applied. Several moves listed here may have additional effects that might alter actual damage output which are not factored on this specific list. Use damage calculators to find actual damage amounts.
These are a list of several common move combinations Scyther can perform in Red/Blue. Not every combo going to be game-changing, but some can be pretty fun to play with. Sometimes these can be easily overlooked or forgotten, hence why we find and list them here.
