-Scyther- by arvalis -Scyther- by arvalis

PRINT STORE-BUY THIS THERE


Edit: I always saw Scyther as a very dinosaur/dragon looking critter with some bug parts. It has come to my attention that others did not see it this way, they saw him as more of bug. This is my interpretation. If you want him more insect-like, you're more than welcome to draw him that way :)

Always thought Scyther was pretty sweet. Always wished he was actually a better pokemon. This is the Scyther I always wanted. You can see the entire process recording over at My Livestream Channel

Well now we know where Capcom got the idea for Raizex/Astalos being a buglizard.

Scyther has always been my absolute favorite Pokemon, and I support him as both an insect and as a reptile. He's totally badass in your style, and I want 400 on my team ♥

I guess this makes sense on how scyther can't learn fly

Not sure why you've drawn a dinosaur for something called a Mantis Pokemon

Its also weird that I drew a turtle for something called the shellfish pokemon(blastoise), it should clearly be a clam.

OMG...Since I'm 8 yeras old I found Scyther dangerous and scary, but now...you make the point, arvalis. He is so real and epic <3.

I guess this pseudo-wings increase the sun capture and stock of Scyther's lizard-like metabolism. And then : more heat, more speed, you know the speech. I see him like a predator which makes great jumps to reach his preys. And I easily imagine that the scythes membrane is made of a chitin hard like diamond.

Scyther has always been my favorite pokemon and the way he looks normally but this makes me love it even more!! 

((I now stick by having it as a real life pokemon if they existed))

Man, that's a really awesome interpretation! Now that you mention it, I can totally see what you mean, the sprite's head looks like a green Charmeleon head with some extra spikes. And those legs were never bug legs to begin with. :u
Mega Scytcher bug/dragon confirmed? ;3

Isn't Scyther a Mantis Pokemon?  Of the Insect Type?
This variant of it.... makes me wonder what the mother or father was... and creeps me out.
It looks epic though :D

Hey, dude. I REALLY get your point on the lizard/dinossaur/dragon visual. Yes...I really do. Scyther's face really looks like that. Make his body also a reptilian like. Ok...very cool too...and makes sense. But...removing totally his blades...you'll have to forgive me for this, but it's not Scyther. =/

Only thing to improve it now is giving it Pterosaur fore wings and Insect hind wings. Still, nothing else needs to be changed, apart from the wings.

  I guess going the raptor route makes sense, but it's missing some real working wings IMO.

love scyther since d 1st generation, n always thought that it's evolved version makes it look weaker than b4.
N also i'd read a pokemon manga which Gary is a calm n cool pro pokemon trainer n he owns a scyther which makes me love this pokemon more than ever.

Ehh... Scizor doesn't look any less weak or strong than Scyther, IMO. The metallic coating makes it seem more powerful.
