& Reviews below
Ratings are based
on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst. 3 ... average.
5 is the highest rating.
I just found out that Zeo has a pretty good spoiler for the
preview cards if you can't read the small scans like me.
Poison Resistance is an interesting power. It would have been
better if it was similar to Jungle/LC Snorlax's though. Snatch is
a pretty decent attack. In Unlimited, it's good against Slowking
decks as you can force them to the active position. Heavy Metal is
a really good attack for the cost. It's better than Neo Genesis
Steelix's Tail Crush. The downside is Scizor has only 80HP.
In Unlimited, this is one of the better Scizors to play. Not too
weak to ER as you can use Recycle Energies and DCEs to power up
for the 2nd attack. Like I mentioned before, Snatch is a good
attack against Slowking too. Rating: 3/5
In Modified, unfortunately Entei decks are really popular. Both
Magcargo/Ninetales or even Entei can take out Scizor in one hit.
If Fire was not so popular here, Scizor would have received a
higher rating. Rating: 2.8/5
In Draft, I'm not sure whether you can even get Metal Energy in
this set. If you can't, you would have to draft it with sets like
Expedition or Neo Genesis for the Metal Energy. If not, you won't
be able to use Snatch at all. The good thing is, Heavy Metal is
splashable. However, if Scyther is a Rare, it'll be even harder to
get Scizor out. Too much stuff required to make this card
effective in draft. Not really worth the trouble... Rating: 2/5
I love the first attack. The only problem with
it is that the pokemon you bring out cant have any dammage. That
kinda immediately destroys my deck idea =(. The PokeBody power
works very well in TMP but otherwise, its not much use. It's
possible to do a lot of dammage with the second attack, but on
average, it will do around 50 or so. And its a little overpriced.
The Poke`mon Master 1110
Nice card. The power is just straight
forward and makes Eggexutor the only grass type that can touch
him. The first attack is very nice. Twenty damage is low, but
the effect makes up for it. If your opponet has any benched
pokemon with no damage, switch it out and do the twenty to it.
The second attack is just brutal. Three metals, a chance for
sixty. Plus those metals will reduce damage done to you, and he
can't be posined. Scizor in four words: hard to take down.
Unlimited: I like him here. The
power won't do too much for him, but he can do alot of damage
while taking alot of punishment. That's good. 3/5
MMF: Very nice. Grass will make a
come back, so he'll be around to plauge grass players. A strength
charm and he takes out that Cleffa or Tyroge your opponet
retreated in favor of his big hitter. Sweet. 3.75/5
Limited: Hard to say. Status is
great in draft, so preventing posin all together is good. But
without metals, he is no too good, doing a straight thirty.
Still, you could draft a metal or two since you can get three
rares per pack, so you may want him. Depends on the situation.
The Bottom Line: 3/5
I really hope this is the card for today... Its a wierd story, so
don't ask... This is the worst scizor ive ever seen. Picture wise.
Too cartoonish in my opinion. Anyways... 80HP for this scizor.
Won't any scizor hit more than 80(other than the dark one, of
course)? And what is this? No0, the bottom stats have gotten
worse. Everything is the same but grass resistance is cut off!!
No0!! But i guess you can say that the pokebody makes up for it.
Not being able to be posison gives scizor a high advantage over
alota pokes. Alot of grass pokes do posion, so this is where the
no resistance is made up. After this, theres 2 attacks.I kno, its
kinda wierd seeing a card like this. But the more on a card, the
more reliable it is. First attack is good for pecking off babies.
Especially with a plus power. Second attack is all colorless,
which is good. Just like the jungle scyther, but with more
potential. If you cheated, you could do 110 damage. But i kno you
guys dont cheat, right?
Unlimited- You could possibly upgrade a worn down scyther.
Although raw damage is more favorable than poison in unlimited,
you do see the poisoners once in a while(Thats why my gligar
ripped through pokemaster's haymaker ;D). SER is mentioned
everytime here since people abuse it alot, but it shouldn't hurt
scizor badly, jus as it shouldnt hurt scyther badly(unless you had
4 metals on). 2.5/5
Modified- Baby world sees destruction. Non-damaged babies can get
picked off with the first attack + a strength charm. Fire is still
strong though. And the absense of grass resistance makes it a
lower choice if you want to go with steel =\ 2.75/5
Draft- With lots of stuff you can do with this scizor, draft
should be no problem. And its only stage 1! Theres also a scyther
in this set too, but i dont kno wut it does. Anyways, i doubt you
would get a metal, but still 30 damage is pretty decent. IF you
happen to get a metal with other packs, then youd hav a higher
chance of winning. 3.25
Team- Well posion is one of the strongest thing in team. With the
body, your opponent can't really do a thing if they play posion.
Baby pick offs are still here too, since team is modified. 3.75/5
Undoubtedly a good card. You see a Poke-Body and TWO attacks, and
your eyes start to roll. You read the text, and your eyes detach.
O_O It HAS lost resistance to Grass though.
Unlimited: I think it's playable here. You can play a deck similar
Steelix in Unlimited. With Pluspower, the first attack KOs
undamaged Babies from your opponent's Bench. I like that. :D Then
the second attack does an average of 50 damage if you have 2
Metal/Rainbow Energies attached to Scizor. Quite nice. Weakness to
Fire is not a problem in this format too. SER might be a problem,
but that's why you should play heavy energy recovery trainers with
this card. I think this could work.
Modified: It's even better in Modified. Strength Charm does the
to KO the opponent's Babies this time (assuming again that they're
undamaged). You may also bring out a heavy retreating undamaged
card with this attack, then proceed to Heavy Metal it. Again the
second attack is quite nice here. Yes, it has lost resistance to
grass, but it has resistance to Poison, so Grass-type cards will
still have a hard time to KO Scizor. Weakness to fire IS a problem
though. Magcargo won't have much of a problem to eliminate this
guy. If this card becomes popular, I expect Fire, or maybe even
some previously not much played cards such as Light Golduck, to
show up more in this format. And, it has every good reason to
Draft: Thankfully, both Metal Energy and Rainbow Energy are
available in Aquapolis, but they're both Rare. Scizor is rare too.
You won't draft too much of each from a set containing 48 Rares.
It still has a nice colorless attack though, so it's still
playable even if you didn't find any Metal or Rainbow Energies.
