Scyther Raid Guide

Scyther is a dual Bug- and Flying-type Pokémon available in 3-star Raids. It’s easy soloable by Trainers with a strong Rock-type team consisting of top counters like Rampardos, Tyranitar and Rhyperior. You better come prepared, but the fight is everything but impossible to win. Rock-types are your go-for counters, as the Mantis Pokémon suffers a double weakness to Rock, but other options are available.

SCYTHER YOUTUBER CONTENT

Here’s a collection of YouTuber content focused on Scyther Raids. In these videos, you will find counters, short-man experiences, and tips & tricks to help you in your battles against the Mantis Pokémon.

MOVE ASCYTHER!

Scyther is an interesting Raid Boss. Neither Scyther nor Scizor have a prominent place in the current meta, with Scizor being outperformed by others when it comes to Raids. 

Don’t get me wrong, Scizor isn’t a bad Pokémon at all, it’s just that better options are out there. BUT, and here comes why it is interesting, it can be Shiny! And let’s agree, Shiny Scizor looks pretty dope.

If you’re still waiting to get yourself a flashy green Edward Scissorhands, raid away! If not, you probably want to hold on to your Raid Passes. Keep up-to-date with the availability of Scyther in Raids by checking out the Current Raid Boss List on our Homepage.
