Well I’m still looking for TRU Darkrai. If you are reading this and feel like helping me out feel free to e-mail me. I’ll trade you well for it. Same goes for Gamestop Deoxys. Thanks =)


We continue comparing evolutions this week. This not only happens with Scyther and Scizor, there are different ways of evolution and we might be analyzing these in the next few weeks. It has the same abilities as Scyther and their base stats are just different, but they are not that different either. Scizor is an excellent physical sweeper wit a couple interesting variations. New moves meant better opportunities for Scizor in today’s battle environment.


The movesets for today are…


Physical Sweeper.
Scizor@Liechi Berry.
Nature: Adamant (+Attack, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Speed / 252 Attack / 6 Defense.
- X-Scissor
- Iron head
- Swords dance / Pursuit / Night slash / Roost
- Brick break / Aerial ace / U turn


Standard psychical sweeping. Swarm s recommended for this set. Swords dance is a nice boost anytime you can use it.


Endure – Reversal.
Scizor@Salac Berry.
Nature: Jolly (+Speed, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Speed / 252 Attack / 6 HP.
- X-Scissor / Baton pass / Iron head
- Swords dance / Agility
- Endure
- Reversal


This one is for swarm ability as well. This one can actually be used more than one time. Baton pass some attack or speed and later use it again; endure, let berry activate and sweep.


Baton passer.
Scizor@Salac Berry.
Nature: Jolly (+Speed, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Speed / 252 Attack / 6 HP.
- X-Scissor / Iron head
- U-turn / Baton pass
- Endure
- Swords dance


This is a much more elaborated baton passer. It is relatively easy to use because of its high defenses and potential high speed.


Choice bander /Choice scarfer.
Scizor@Choice band / Choice scarf.
Nature: Adamant (+Attack, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Speed / 252 Attack / 6 HP.
- X-Scissor / U-turn
- Iron head
- Pursuit / Night slash
- Brick break / Aerial ace


Technician is the ability to go with this set. Hit and switch at will, U-turn does that at the same time, a very cool move if you ask me.



Scizor became better with the new generation moves. It has an impressive move pool with a wide variety of types. It is definitely considered or a lot of teams.



Dragon types have advantage over Scizor. A lot of them are faster, can boost its stats and can even hit harden than Scizor. Status conditions will also hurt a lot. Flying and fire types are the main choice when facing Scizor; Charizard and Gyarados are some of the best.


Bottom line.

I hope you are having a great summer, it’s been raining and kind of cold over here so if you are having sun go outside, have fun and enjoy it.





Hope you enjoyed.
