Scyther resembles a primarily green, human-sized praying mantis with accents of cream coloration. It has large, blade-like forearms and a pair of cream-colored wings. Its head is reptilian rather than insect-like in shape, with three small points, and its feet possess three claws.
It evolves into Scizor at level 33.
It slashes through grass with its sharp scythes, moving too fast for the human eye to track.
