Recently, new Pokémon from the original series are slowly being added to Pokémon GO. Trainers have been going crazy trying to catch these new Pokémon. However, some still prefer the older generation of Pokémon or are still on the verge of completing their Pokédex.

One of the Pokémon belonging to the earlier generations of the series is Scyther. In this article, we will discuss what a Scyther is and where you can catch it in Pokémon GO.

Let’s get right to it!

What is a Scyther?


Scyther was first introduced in Generation I, making it one of the first Pokémon in the series. It looks like a humanoid praying mantis with scythes as hands.

It uses its scythe-like arms to hunt prey and fight other Pokémon. Regardless of its praying mantis physique, it has a reptile-like head and sharp teeth.

As you may have guessed, Scyther is a Bug- and Flying-type Pokémon that evolves into a Scizor by using 50 candies and one Metal Coat. It is a pretty strong Pokémon with a reasonably good moveset, making it a promising addition to any team.

Where is Scyther in Pokémon GO?

In Pokémon GO, you can usually find Scyther in the Grasslands. If you are from the United States, you can spot it in Illinois, Texas, California, Florida, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Utah, South Carolina, and Oregon.

How to Get Scyther from Anywhere at Home

If you aren’t from any of the areas listed above or not even remotely near them, it will be pretty hard for you to find and catch a Scyther.

Normally, in this situation, you would have to trade for a Scyther instead. Luckily, there is another way. You can use external software to teleport you to these coordinates in the game.

An app like MockGo app can help get you to these locations in the game, while you lounge in the comfort of your home.

It is a user-friendly app that is pretty simple to use, and it doesn’t take an expert to handle it. On top of all that, you don’t need to jailbreak your device for you to use it.

To use MockGo to change your location in Pokémon GO, follow these steps:

  1. First, download the application to your computer. Next, install the application and launch.
  2. Once launched, connect your device to your computer.
  3. As soon as your device is detected, click on Start.
  4. After that, select the first option located in the top-right corner. This will change the GPS location of your iPhone to anywhere you want.
  5. Search for the intended location on the search bar. Adjust the pin on the screen and click on the Move Here button.
  6. Once that is done, the GPS location on your device will be changed instantly.

MockGo also has a walking feature that simulates walking as you transfer from one location to another.

This minimizes, if not eliminates, the chances of getting banned while using the app since location spoofing is considered cheating by Niantic.

You can also move between multiple spots instead of just two by using the multi-stop route feature to make the process look a bit more natural. To do this, just follow these simple steps:

  1. First, open the toolbox interface.
  2. Next, select the Multiple Spot Feature.
  3. After that, plot all the intended spots on the map.
  4. Finally, click on the Move Here button to start walking.

Once the process is completed, just sit back and relax as you watch the application do its magic. When you reach your desired destination, you can start finding Scythers.

Wrapping Up

If you are from the United States, especially in states such as California and Texas, and are looking for a Scyther in Pokémon GO, you are in luck.

Various Scyther nests are spread out in those areas, especially in the Grasslands. On the other hand, catching it will be more challenging if you are not from these states.

Fortunately, you can actually teleport yourself to those areas in the game while playing at home. Applications such as MockGo will do this for you and makes the hunting process easier than ever.
