Reserving last mon for More Cowbell.
More Cowbell, take Comatose the Scyther. Catch it in the Bug-Catching Contest.
As soon as this Scyther woke up this morning, it got encountered by a trainer, stuffed into a ball smaller than the size of its head and trooped off for show. It won first prize, but, well, its day wasn't off to a really good start.
Ever since that morning, this Scyther has developed an irrational fear for balls.
Hence, while it is out in battle, you cannot throw any balls. Also, it refuses to be placed into a Ball while it is still conscious and hence must always be the walking Pokemon with you and cannot be recalled unless it is asleep or has fainted. And, every time it faints, it gets kinda pissed off. Evidently, since you don't care enough about it to keep it conscious, it doesn't need to care about you. Why should it learn the moves you want to teach it?
So, after Scyther faints once, it will refuse to learn any HMs you try to teach it.
After it faints twice or more, it's had it. It's enough to fall into a life-threatening coma once, but twice? Great Arceus' Balls! (Oh no not balls please nooooo) At this point, Scyther will reject any moves you try to teach it whose base power is above 40. Before you think you can get away with Technician boosts, you should know that this Scyther failed its vocational training degree. So Technician is out. Sorry.
Move tutors are somewhat better; they don't leave it to die when it encounters a giant flaming bird of death. So, it can learn move tutor moves, but only those adhering to the above restrictions (depending on how many times Scyther has died fallen into a coma).
By the time it reaches Kanto, it's had enough of you humans. Every time it faints from now on, it will subsequently sneak into your backpack and toss out the first TM it finds. After a while, it realises it's run out of TMs to toss. If you ever run out of TMs to toss, toss out five items from your main compartment. And, of course, it won't go near the ball compartment.
When it finally reaches Blue, it goes all out and spares no expense to annoy you. It will only use moves which are resisted by the opponent, just to piss you off. If it doesn't have any moves resisted by the opponent, it will choose to use False Swipe, because it doesn't want other Pokemon to share the same fate as it has, fainting over and over and over again.
Ever since it won the prize in the Bug-Catching Contest, it can never forget the glory of being number one. As such, it must always be the highest level Pokemon in your party.
Good luck; you'll need it.
