With the first gen since critical chance is based on speed could you just pump him full of carbos to get his crit chance pretty ridic to begin with? Scyther's pretty fast to begin with if I remember correctlyFunny, I'm trying to get a Scyther in Pokemon Yellow. It's a pity that Swords Dance, Focus Power, and Rage are all bugged in one way or another because he'd be a TOTAL BEAST (moreso than he already is) if they worked properly. I really wanted the one-two combo of Swords Dance and Rage to work, since he has high attack already, and high speed as well. Though perhaps he would be a bit squishy to take full advantage of that combo. Still, if Focus Power worked, he could use Slash and have a really high probability of a critical hit.
