Grovyle used Fury Cutter by Saskle

 


Fury Cutter

“The target is slashed with scythes or claws. Its power increases if it hits in succession.“

Fury Cutter is a physical Bug-type move with an incredible 95% accuracy and a large PP of 20. The power of this move doubles when it is used consecutively after continuous turns making it a very strong move indeed.

It was first introduced in Generation II and is considered to be a cool move if used in a Pokemon contest. Grovyle has a chance to learn Fury Cutter when it evolves from Treecko.

X-Scissor

“The user slashes at the target 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.  Originally Grovyle could only learn it from TM83, but from Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire onward, it can also learn the move at level 43.

It was used by not less than three of the Pokemon drawn for our Gen I Tribute while only Scizor from Gen II and now Grovyle from Gen III used it in our most recent Tribute!



#253 Grovyle

“Leaves grow out of this Pokémon’s body. They help obscure a Grovyle from the eyes of its enemies while it is in a thickly overgrown forest.”

Grovyle is a grass-type Pokémon first introduced in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald.  Treecko evolves into this form at level 16 and can then go on to evolve into Sceptile at level 32.

Grovyle can be seen in forests and jungles, where they use the leaves across their body to camouflage itself into their surroundings.  This is most useful when hunting for prey, used in conjunction with its strong thigh muscles as it moves from branch to branch among the trees.  Its speed and jumping ability makes it exceptionally difficult to get caught by other Pokémon.

Ash’s Sceptile had a stint in this form in the Pokémon animé, evolving into it from Treecko during a battle against Guy’s Loudred.  It would go on to tease other Pokémon, but will always defend them when in difficult situations.  Since evolution, Grovyle was one of Ash’s most valued Pokémon, with its spirited performances being key to Ash’s Top 8 finish in the Ever Grande Conference.
