Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

She is BEAUTIFUL … but I might not be thinking with my mantis head …

Scyther (in Japanese: ストライク  “Strike”) is a BUG & FLYING dual-type Pokémon. (Some players are frustrated however, that this flying bug cannot actually learn the TM Fly!) Scyther is known as the “Mantis Pokémon. It only evolves into Scizor (in Japanese: ハッサム “Hassam”) when traded holding the Metal Coat item. (You might want to get it traded back, so only trade it with another trusted trainer. Scizor becomes a BUG & STEEL type and is known as the “Pincer Pokémon”. Scizor can Mega Evolve into Mega Scizor if holding a Scizorite stone.

My favorite nickname for Scyther is “Slingblade” named after the classic Billy-Bob Thornton film “Slingblade”. (By far, his best movie.)

This is most appropriate — as you can see in the intense scene below.

“Some folks call it a Scyther-blade … I call it a sling-blade …”

My second favorite name for Scyther or Scizor is “Ronin” or some variation of a Samurai-related term. “BoshidoBug” for example.

Scyther — in the game — does not  look very female, so naming the fairer-gender may be harder. These cosplayers make Scyther look more like a beautiful fairy than an ugly bug however.

I usually name female Scyther something like “A.Castrator ” or “La Castra”, because …

Ahem … this flying fairy bug could easily castrate an opposing male Pokémon.

(Denny in high pitched voice): – maybe you could teach it the move “Swords Dance” for extra power!

Scyther is a Mantis. I learned in my Invertebrate Zoology course that the female Mantis is much larger and is a more viscous predator than the male.  Typically she will bite the head off of her chosen male suitors. In fact, the male will mate more effectively once his head has been severed. (Guys, take this Mantis advice:  (cough) … If you are ever having trouble at the crucial point …don’t over-think it … Ah, and it will be … OK, there it is again…).

Another female who cannot figure out why she cannot sustain a relationship.

Another female who cannot figure out why she cannot sustain a meaningful relationship.

Once the female Mantis has received sperm from the typical unthinking male, she will devour the rest of him. In fact, she may continue eating the other stupid males who were also attracted by her pheromones, and were waiting their chance. The males would be better off by not thinking with their little bug dicks, but who can ever learn that lesson?

Names for Scizor: I have used include “Edward” because of the film Edward Scissorhands”. The name “Scissorhands” has 12-letters which just makes the limit.

You could use the name “Run-With-Me” as a joke, because everyone know that you should not run with Scizors … Ha.

What is the name for your castrating bug? Please COMMENT, or “Like” … yada-yada-yada.

REFERENCES: I always get my basic information from Bulbapedia or Serebi dot net. You can also get nickname suggestions from the Name Rater‘s web page link (although HE HATES YOU). Everything else is Googily-dooed on Pixeley-Poo.

  1. I would rather not lose my head so I will keep away from those cosplayers.

  2. Great cosplay 😍. Scyther and Scizor are cool bug-type Pokemon. I wouldn’t want to be near those blades. The Mega Scizor looks like Deoxys in a way.
