Physical Sweeper Scyther (Retro)
Scyther is an astounding Physical Sweeper. It is primarily designed to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Out of the original 151, Scyther was quite something to try to play with in the first generation meta. 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).
♦ 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).

Sort and organize the learnset by move type, category, accuracy, and power. Bolded moves will gain the same-type attack bonus (STAB) if this Pokemon uses them.
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. Discover what items, abilities, and moves this Pokemon can use in combination with each other to gain a strategic advantage in competitive battles.
