sorry for the wait been really busy
today im doing three pokemon scyther and scizor and pinsir. they will all be judged individually even though two are related.

Scyther: no doubt about it is my favorite pokemon bug or otherwise. its mean looking and is based off a cool creature to begin with. its on the upper tier of speed and attack for bugs. and again like all first and second gen pokemon he was shafted by the lack of bug type moves.
and until x scissor couldnt learn a good one without breeding. but he has always had a good arsenal of ulterior moves he could go to. and he is immune to earth type moves.
as a personal bias i give scyther a 9 out of 10

scizor: the out of the right field bleachers evolution to my beloved scyther. he is perhaps my favorite added evolution pokemon next to froslass. but the loss of his immunity to earth and 4x damage taken by fire hurts him greatly. but poison immunity helps a little. scizor does have a bit better move pool to pull from but thats not really a factor
scizor gets a magical 8 of 10

pinsir: the pure bug powerhouse who has dozens of moves that can legitimately be placed into his moveset. then u look at megahorn and guillotine as a great power combo.
he is perhaps the best pure bug in the game and really doesnt need an evolution even though some of us would like to see that or link them with heracross with a baby, but that is something for another day
7 out of 10

    I should point out that Scyther, like Scizor, has a massive weakness: Rock. It's also weak to Flying, Fire, Electric, and Ice. Although Scizor's massive weakness to Fire can be worrisome, there's the fact that Fire is Scizor's only weakness.

    Also, if I remember correctly, Pinsir can't learn Megahorn for some reason. The only Bugs that can are Heracross, Scolipede, Karrablast, and Escavalier.

    Also, Scizor has massive Attack and access to plenty of priority attacks, most (in)famously Bullet Punch, letting it dominate just about anyone it feels like if it also has Choice Band/Life Orb, Technician, and a competent user.

    ah ur right in the megahorn part but the rock weakness doesnt really measure because it is an overall weakness for the whole type like fire is but scizor is still weak to fighting and ground. but like i said scyther is dear to my heart
