Scyther first appeared in Pokemon Red and Blue, but could only be caught in Red. It was available as a prize from the Celedon City Game Cornor, or it could be caught in the Safari Zone. There after it has been featured in almost every Pokemon game to be released, but the only instances of catch exclusiveness are in FireRed and Diamond.


Scyther appears as a large green praying mantis like Pokemon, with two large blade-like forearms. It has a pair of cream colored wings, and an almost reptilian head instead of an insects.
