#123 Scyther used X-Scissor and Slash!
Scyther used X-Scissor by MagnaStorm
Elise / Magnastorm from Canada is one of the artists that were invited by us to join the Pokémon Project and she totally liked the idea. In the end she did cover four of the 151 Gen I Pokémon with her take on Pidgey being her first submission to the project, followed later by Slowpoke, Poliwag and Scyther.
I am sure she will join us again when we continue with Gen II next year! Have a look at her gallery on dA here, she shows a lot more video game fan art among other works!
“The user slashes at the foe by crossing its scythes or claws as if they were a pair of scissors”
The X-Scissor is one of the Bug-Type Moves and was introduced in the Generation IV Pokemon Games (Diamond, Pearl, Platinum) It deals damage without any side effects and has a Power Rating of 80.
Scyther used Slash by Dreamgate-Gad
Dreamgate-Gad from Peru is one of the most active Game-Art-HQ Contributors now since around two years and started with a really unpopular character from the Final Fight games for one of our fighting game related projects and participated in almost all later art activites, our Pokémon Tribute however got his full dedication, today in September 2016 he drew already nine of the 151 lovely beasts! The Caterpie was the 2nd Pokémon he drew for this project.
You can see his whole gallery on dA here!
“The target is attacked with a slash of claws or blades. Critical hits land more easily.”
Slash is a rather common move found amongst a great deal of Pokemon. With a hit rate of 100% and a power stat of 70, it is a hard-hitting Normal-Type move that can inflict critical damage more easily. Most Pokemon who possess sharp claws have or can learn this move.
“With ninja-like agility and speed, it can create the illusion that there is more than one”
Looking part insect and part reptile, Scyther is a fierce looking Bug/Flying-Type Pokemon found in tall grassy areas. It can evolve into Scizor when traded holding a Metal Coat.
The name is obviously derived from its sharp scythe-like forearms. They only become sharper the more material they slice through. It is also capable of blending in with its surroundings. Although it has wings; it rarely is seen flying as it prefers being agile on its feet.
They’re pretty frightening on their own. But in the anime even more so as they appear to travel in swarms. Imagine being surrounded by these vicious looking things!
