Rocket's Scyther (Gym Heroes 13)
Rocket's Scyther (Japanese: R団のストライク Rocket's Strike) is a Grass-type Basic Pokémon card. It is part of the Gym Heroes expansion.

Scyther did not have an evolution at the time of this card's release, making the text "or is evolved" on the Shadow Images attack an error. Additionally, despite its evolution Scizor later appearing on two Rocket's Scizor cards, Rocket's Scizor as a Best of Game promo and Rocket's Scizor ex from EX Team Rocket Returns, Rocket's Scyther has no legal evolution card. This is because the Best of Game promo Rocket's Scizor is done in the VS style and is a Basic Pokémon, while Rocket's Scizor ex is permitted to evolve only from Rocket's Scyther ex in EX Team Rocket Returns.
Shadow Images's Japanese name is that of Double Team, a move in the Pokémon games that Scyther can learn.
