In Pokemon fire red, there are only two places to find scyther. One is in the Celadon Game Corner and the other is in the safari zone. In the department store you have to give 5,500 Coins to uy scyther. I am running low on coins so I can't afford it And I'm terrible at slots. In the safari zone, scyther has a very low encounter rate. Can anone tell me a away to increase it?

You can buy 500 coins for P10,000, so a Scyther costs P110,000. You can try defeating trainers until you save up that much. The amulet coin from Route 16 should make it easier.

You unfortunately cannot increase chances of a Scyther appearing. However, Bulbapedia states:

If Bait is thrown, it will be "eating" for 1-5 turns, during which the catch factor is halved. If Rocks are thrown, it will be "angry" for 1-5 turns, during which the catch factor is doubled. Being "angry" or "eating" is mutually exclusive, though modifications to the catch factors will stack.

I believe this means that throwing either Bait or Rocks will increase your chance of catching Scyther for a few turns.

Hope I helped!
