History: Scythe was born in the Johto region along with a twin brother named Grecko. Their father was an exceptional trainer and was very well known. When the two turned eight, their father decided to open up his own training gym in Kanto and so the family moved. The gym was opened and trainers from the Kanto region came to battle Scythe's father everyday. Scythe and Grecko would watch the battles and learn something new from each of them. At the age of eleven the boys were given a pokemon by their father. Scythe got a Cyndaquil and Grecko got a Totodile. A few weeks after they went on a training expedition until something went wrong. The three were jumped by a man in all black riding on a ryhorn. Scythe's father told them to run and so they did.
As fate would have it though Grecko slipped and fell off the side of the cliff, Scythe barley managing to grab his hand. Scythe was not strong enough to pull his brother up and so Grecko gave him his Totodile as he released his hand. Scythe walked back to where his father was but the man was no where to be seen. Scythe wondered back home hoping his dad was there, but he wasn't. He found his mom and told her everything. After everything had been worked out, Scythe decided to take over his father's gym.He trained in the gym for four years until he heard news that his dad was spotted in Sinnoh. He said goodbye to his mom, close the gym, and left to look for his missing dad. In four years Scythe had no luck locating his father, but he has become a great and pretty well known trainer. He hopes by doing so his father may notice it and look for him.
