Physical Tank Scizor

Acrizor: Using a Scizor as a Physical Tank might seem alittle weird, but Scizor really stirs things up!ScizorLink:

Basic Build: Scizor is a badass Physical Tank. White Herb makes it so resets lowered stats to normal at end of turn, but only once. Scizor’s Technician ability factors in quite nicely.

Scizor (F) @ White Herb
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Def / 4 SDef /
Adamant Nature (+Atk , -SAtk)
– Acrobatics
– Superpower
– Bug Bite
– Bullet Punch

Breeding Instructions:
Breeding this Scizor shouldn’t be too bad. Scizor belongs to the Bug egg group. Check the link for full instructions.

Summary: This build was designed quite nicely.  It’s a nice change for the common Choice Band + Technician + Priority Set that everyone’s come to expect lately. Thanks PokeReaper for submitting this hardcore build.

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.

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:

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.
