To try to run IDLE with 8.5, one should install tcl/tk 8.5.18 as described at  This requires making a free Active State account and is not at all guaranteed to be sufficient.

Today I installed 3.8.6 and 3.9.0rc2 (3.9.0 is due in 2 weeks) on an Airbook with up to date Mohave and ran IDLE. In both cases, there are a few Mac-specific bugs, but IDLE mostly works.
