* Legacy Moveset

X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Fury Cutter and X-Scissor offer the highest DPS when facing Psychic, Dark, and Grass-types
  • Bullet Punch and Iron Head are the preferred set for dealing with Rock, Ice, and Fairy-types
  • Night Slash is underwhelming; a three charge move with a longer cooldown and does not benefit from STAB, only offering additional Ghost coverage

Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Bullet Punch is on par with Fury Cutter, both having similar coverage or lack thereof.
  • X-Scissor is clearly superior to Night Slash; both are three charge moves with similar DPS, but the latter's cooldown is significantly longer, making it easier to take advantage of dodge windows.
  • Iron Head is often better than Night Slash, offering higher DPS at a shorter cooldown despite being a two-bar charge move, although the latter offers wider type coverage.

Rating Explanation

Scizor has excellent ATK and DEF stats but is held back from true greatness by lackluster offensive typing, which relegates this Pokemon to a Psychic or Fairy-killer niche and part-time Tyranitar attacker.

Defensively, high DEF stats and Steel-typing offer many resistances, but Fire is an strong counter, exploiting his glaring double weakness as well as resisting both STABs. 

Though his uses are fairly specific, Scizor fulfills them with ruthless efficiency. Bug STAB absolutely shreds the doubly weak Exeggutor/Celebi, and only Pinsir competes with this role.

As a Steel specialist, he is outclassed by Metagross when released, but still usable.
