I've never used Durant, so I'm going to have to go with Scizor.
Scizor looks better and is faster(?)
But I heard that if trained right, a Durant can be pretty cool as well.
Actually, Durant's faster. And that Speed, Hustle, Hone Claws, and a good-enough movepool is pretty cool.
However, Scizor obviously has the design win. Apart from being steely, Durant looks like some generic ant. Scizor has always been admired for things like that sleek red exoskeleton and those powerful pincer-claw-things. Battle-wise, it's pretty much a tie. I'll look deeper into it later. For now, though, I'm giving it to Scizor. It was OU's number-one tank in Gen. IV for a reason.
I'm considering adding Escavier, Foretress, and Genesect to the poll. How do I edit polls? Or do I have to make a new one?
I like Durant. I caught one and named it Pissant, he pretty much kills everything that doesn't know any fire moves.
Haven't even seen a Durant in my game (I don't think), and Scizor would be more useful in battle.
I'll say Scizor, as it's the superior offensive force -and when you're a steel/bug type, you need offense more than defense. It also has a cooler design, although it lacks the name of one of the best basketball players currently playing.
This thread can be deleted now, here's the link to the better version of this poll: Scizor vs Forretress vs Wormadim (Trash Cloak) vs Escavier vs Durant vs Genesect
Scizor. It's more useful and better in battling.

Scizor. It's better in battle, and it doesn't look like shit. Durant, meanwhile...
If there's anything cool about Durant, though, it's that it's named Durant. As in Kevin Durant. As in one of the best NBA players in the NBA.
Still, I hate the Pokemon.

While both are really good in battle, I vote for Scizor for its better design and that STAB Bullet Punch + Technician he's going for.
I hate Durant - it gave me too much trouble in Victory Road. So I pick Scizor
Scizor does Bug/Steel far better than Durant.
Starters of choice.
