Choice Band Scizor

Intro: Imagine a priority attack that was quick, ruthless, and power packed to the extreme… It doesn’t normally exist yet, but can we create it? Let’s take a nice look at Scizor.

Basic Build: The concept here is pretty simple once you do all the math. It’s main move here is Bullet Punch (and to a lesser extent Pursuit when you can predict the switch). Bullet punch is a priority steel-typed move that packs base 40 damage whollup. Scizor being a Bug/Steel-type gains a nice STAB bonus by using it and an additional 1.5x boost thanks to it’s Technician ability. Combine that with Choice Band for another 1.5x and we just created a priority base 180 (40 x 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.5) smack to the face! Factor in the max attack EVs and destruction surrounds you.

Scizor (F) @ Choice Band
Trait: Technician
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 SDef /
Adamant Nature (+Atk , -SAtk)
– U-turn
– Bullet Punch
– Superpower
– Pursuit

Breeding Instructions: The hardest part about breeding this is heading over to the move tutor to teach it Superpower (which isn’t really that hard). By level 9, you can get this Scizor setup. EV-training and move acquisition instructions can be found here:  http://www.hohoushome.com/breed.php?v=102

Summary: Scizor’s other moves help fill in typing concerns but you really need to be aware of nasty fire-types which resist Steel attacks and do 4x damage to Scizor. This moveset isn’t flawless but it makes for a pretty nasty addition to any team. Thanks RedSerperior for submitting this great build.
