How to catch scyther...?

#1hangman_link3Posted 4/4/2010 10:52:43 PM
Okay, so i want to get a scyther, but the question i have is do you have to be in the bug catching contest to get him, or can you be catching him on your own time.

Also, in which grass do you find him in. Do you find him in the tall grass where you can't take your bike, or the normal grass thats seen everywhere else in the world.

And finally, how exactly does the bug catching contest work. I went there on saturday evening and the guy only told me that its open tuesday, thrusday, and saturday, and that you can catch pokemon.
Well, that didn't get me anywhere. So, do i have to do an event before i can go to the contest, or is it just because i talked to the wrong guy or went there to late at night.

Oh, and do i have to go there on a specific day to catch scyther, because i heard that i did somewhere.

The competitive nature of a game is inversely proportional to the amount of extraneous and/or arbitrary rules enforced by the players.

you can only catch scyther during the bug-catching contest and i believe its in the grass below the fountain. to enter the contest just talk to the guard next to the door on tues/thurs/sat and tell him you want to enter.

It makes no difference which grass you look in

go there on tuesday thursday and saturday your first poke will be selected

once you enter run like an idiot in the grass, after a while some pokes will appaer run from them unless is a pinsir >> thoise are worth thre trouble of catching them >>

after a while scyther will appaer weaken him/her and then throw a pokeall at him and there you have catched a scyther,

you can only keep one poke from the contest so once you caught a scyther leave the area

if you managed to catch scyther withouth hurting him/her you will most likely win good luck :3

Go to the bug catching competition, which is at the national park on Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday. Scyther will be there. Before you enter the competition, I recommend saving so that if something goes wrong, a simple reset will remedy it.

Use a Pokemon that can afflict a status condition. Also, note that you can't use items during the competition.

If you really want a Scyther that bad, there's ones in Diamond version on the Route north of the Resort Area (around Lv50).
