Get ready, because from May 2nd to May 11, Mega Scizor is making a grand entrance in Mega Raids at gyms near you. With its wickedly sharp claws and menacing steel exoskeleton, Mega Scizor is not to be trifled with. This bad boy is one of the toughest Mega Evolutions out there, packing a punch that will knock your socks off (or at least, your opponent’s Psychic Pokemon).
If you’re a Pokemon GO player, you already know that Mega Evolutions are some of the most powerful and sought-after in the game. It’s not only for the Pokedex entry but rather for the huge CP boost and combat viability of these mega evolved Pokemon. And when it comes to Mega Evolutions, Mega Scizor is a real standout. This steel and bug-type Pokemon boasts an impressive set of stats and moves that make it a must-have for any serious trainer who plan on partaking in battles.
One thing that sets Mega Scizor apart from other Mega Evolutions is its unique type. As a steel and bug-type Pokemon, Mega Scizor is resistant to a wide variety of attacks, including poison, grass, and psychic. This makes it a great choice for taking on a variety of opponents and gives it an edge in battles.
Scizor Best Moveset: Fury Cutter / X-Scissor
X-Scissor or Iron Head
When it comes to movesets for our beloved Scizor, there’s a bit of a debate going on. Some trainers swear by Iron Head, while others prefer X-Scissor. But here’s my two cents: with all the steel-type Pokemon out there, I say stick to Scizor’s bug-type moves and make it a punisher of Psychic-type Pokemon!
Now, don’t get me wrong – Iron Head is a great move. It’s a powerful steel-type attack that can take down opponents with ease. But if you’re like me and already have some awesome steel-type Pokemon in your collection (hello, Metagross and Melmetal), then you don’t really need Scizor to be your steel-type powerhouse.
Of course, all of this assumes that you have some great IV Metagross or Melmetal in your collection. If you don’t, then you may want to consider Iron Head as a way to round out your team’s weaknesses. But if you do have these powerhouses at your disposal, then I say go ahead and let Scizor be the bug-type champion it was meant to be!
That’s where X-Scissor comes in. This bug-type move may not have the same raw power as Iron Head, but it’s still a super fast charging charged attack that can deal some serious damage and take opponents (or their shields) down quick. You can alternatively make Scizor a dual-charged attack Pokemon, you’ll have a lot more versatility in battles.
Now, we all know that shiny Scyther and Scizor have been around for a while. But let’s be honest – who doesn’t want a green and super cool looking shiny Scizor in their collection? And the good news is, by battling in the Mega Scizor Raids, you have a chance to encounter one for yourself!
