    Default Can Scizor fly?

    In episode 140 (Wired For Battle), Scizor is shown flying, but one of its Mystery Dungeon phrases is "I can't fly, but I have power to spare". So am I misinterpreting something, or is it one of those cases where the anime and the games are different canon? Thanks.

    (Sorry if I did something wrong, it's my first post)

    I've raised this question about Scyther, didn't really think about Scizor. I think it can't, as the steel coat made it too heavy

    I'd say it can hover for short periods of time, but can't really fly, like say, a Pidgeot could. Anime is usually a different canon, too.

    That particular episode created a faulty image of Scizor, because it is unable of flight. It can still flap its wings though (which explains it being able to use Defog), but it uses them to regulate its body temperature.

    That makes sense because it was only flying for a short amount of time in that episode. So it probably used its powerful legs to jump into the air and then start hovering momentarily using its wings.

    I remember it jumping really high into the air, as well as moving really fast, but I don't recall it ever genuinely flying. I'd have to watch the episode to be sure, but I think you're just misremembering the episode.

    Don't think weight is the issue. Dragonite can fly despite having smaller wings to body size ratio than Scizor and being over 200 pounds heavier.

    In Smash Bros. Melee, Scizor is featured flying around the screen at high speeds. So I say yes to him flying.
