How To Evolve Scyther
Charles Scott, a Pokemon expert and an adminstrator of the Pika Club, shows you how to evolve Scyther.
Scyther is the mantis Pokemon and is no. 123 on the National Pokedex. Scyther was introduced in the original Red and Blue games but wasn't given an evolution until the Gold, Silver and Crystal versions.
By trading to another player and holding the metal coat item, Scyther will instantly evolve into Scizor. You can find the metal coat on wild Pokemon or in New Malville, in Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald versions. In Diamond, Platinum or Perl version of the game, you are given a metal coat on Iron Island. In Heart Gold and Soul Silver, you can pick up a metal coat on the SS Aqua. You can also buy one in the shop at the Pokeathalon Dome. Metal coats are available here on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. In Black and White versions, you can also find one on Route 13 or on Twist Mountain.
