Scyther is a bipedal, insectoid {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}. It is primarily green with thin, cream-colored sections between its head, thorax, and abdomen. The abdomen of a female will be slightly larger than that of a male. It has narrow eyes and three points on the back of its somewhat reptilian head. Its forearms consist of large, white scythes, which it uses for hunting as well as fighting. On its thighs are spikes of fur, and it has three clawed toes on its large feet. Two pairs of cream-colored wings extend from its back. While these wings do allow Scyther to fly, it rarely does so.

Scyther is a bipedal, insectoid {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}. Its body is primarily green and has thin, cream-colored sections both between the sections of its body (e.g. between its head and thorax). Its reptilian head has two narrow, triangular eyes and three blunt horns extending from its forehead. Its arms end in large, white scythes, which it uses for both hunting and fighting. Two pairs of cream-colored wings extend from its back. While these wings do allow Scyther to fly, it rarely does so. Scyther's thighs have large, upward-pointing spikes. Its feet are tall (extending almost to its thighs), rounded, and conical; each foot ends in three small, white claws on its front side. its Female Scyther have larger abdomens than male Scyther.

Scyther is an adept hunter that tears at its prey with its scythes. Its green coloration gives in excellent camouflage in the grass, and its quick movement is too fast to follow and increases the effectiveness of its scythes. Its movements are said to be similar to a ninja. By cutting through hard objects, it keeps its arms sharp. It can also sharpen its scythes through battling as well. It can cut down a massive tree with just a single slice. [[EP097|The anime]] has shown that wild Scyther form swarms. A new leader is elected when the current leader is defeated in a fight against a challenger; the former leader then leaves the swarm and goes into exile as a result. [[EP042|It has also been shown]] that Scyther becomes aggressive when faced with the color red. Although it is rare, Scyther can be found in {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Grassland Pokémon|grasslands}} or forested areas where it cut down many trees.

Scyther is an adept hunter that tears at its prey with its scythes. Thanks to its green coloration, it can camouflage itself well in the {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Grassland Pokémon|grasslands}} and forests where it lives. Humans rarely encounter wild Scyther in these areas, however. Said to be like a ninja, Scyther can move so quickly that it cannot be followed, increasing the effectiveness of its scythes. It maintains the sharpness of its blades through battle as well as by cutting through hard objects, such as trees; it can cut down a massive tree with just a single slice. [[EP097|The anime]] has shown that wild Scyther form swarms with a single leader chosen through combat. When a challenger successfully defeats a current leader and replaced it, the defeated leader is exiled from the swarm. [[EP042|It has also been shown]] that Scyther becomes aggressive when faced with the color red.
