Scizor (ハッサム) is the 111th Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex. It is a Bug/Steel-Type, and is known as the Pincer Pokémon.

Scizor can use one of two Abilities; Swarm, which increases the power of its Bug-Type moves by 50% when its HP drops below one-third of its maximum, or Technician, which powers up its moves that are base 60 power or less by 50%. Its Hidden Ability is Light Metal, which halves its weight to decrease damage taken from moves like Low Kick.

Scyther gain the opportunity to evolve into Scizor when traded to another game holding a Metal Coat.

Scizor is in the Bug Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 6,400 steps to hatch. It takes Scizor 1,000,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Competitive Battling

Scizor is a part of the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. While heavily overshadowed by its Mega form, Scizor does have its perks as it can hold an item like Life Orb or Choice Band and does not take up a Mega slot. This gives Scizor more raw power than Mega Scizor, allowing it to run an offensive Swords Dance set with Life Orb that can muscle its way through a huge chunk of defensive Pokémon. Scizor is also capable of running its staple Choice Band set that acts as a powerful pivot with U-turn while having strong priority in Technician Bullet Punch. The biggest hindrance for Scizor is its huge weakness to Fire-type attacks which can be easily exploited. It is also outdone by Mega Scizor in many other roles as Mega Scizor has much greater bulk to pull off a bulky Swords Dance set or Defog support set better.
