    Default Scyther vs. Scizor

    Probably one of the closest in stats in the category of infamily evoluton, Scyther and Scizor compete very close against each other.

    Scyther



    Advantage:

    Scyther is one of the original pokemon introduced when pokemon was released. Although it has a huge rock weakness, it is quite faster than a Scizor would perhaps be. The movepool is a little light, but it is a great offensive pokemon.

    Disadvantage:

    Scythers weaknesses include Ice, Rock, Fire, Flying and Electric. 5 major weaknesses. The movepool is very light, they are not the best on the defensive side, and overall, are slightly above average.

    Scizor



    Advantage:

    Scizor are the favored pokemon in the Standard OU metagame. Bullet Punching and Swords Dancing can be a bit tough to deal with. This pokemon has a wide movepool that contains X-Scissor, Iron Head, Fury Cutter, Bullet Punch and X amount more. Scizor's were considered a bit scary and rebellious over the years that it has existed. It has always has a brother (Scyther) to compete with.

    Disadvantage:

    Speed. Scizor's are not typically fast, considering it is a mantis covered in thick iron (I believe?). If you come across a fire type with this pokemon, your toast.



    So, which one shall it be? The slow but heaving hitting Scizor, or the Fast but defensively prone Scyther? Your vote. Discuss -_-

    Scizor has the same base stat total as Scyther, but its distribution is superior, and it works incredibly well with its moveset, ability and typing; all the while, Scizor boasts an awesome design.

    Scizor blows Scyther out of the water.

    Scizor. I used one in my old HG team, and I know how much Technician-boosted Bullet Punches hurt.

    Scizor is much better in terms of typing, stab moves, attack, and usage.

    I still prefer Scyther, as it looks cooler. That really is the only reason sadly.

    Scizor, he has a cool design, good set of movepools and he is such a good sweeper with bullet punch. Syther is ok but its not fun using him.

    Sadly, I'm going to have to agree with the majority here and choose Scizor. That thing is just too much of a beast. Choice Banded/Swords Dance, STAB, Technician boosted Bullet Punch kills everything that doesn't resist it and some things that do.

    Scyther was one of my favorite Pokemon back in Gen I, but it just got eclipsed by Scizor in every way.

    I like Scyther more but I'm not a big fan of either. Especially since Scyther got an evolution while Pinsir didn't.

    I chose Scizor, as Scyther is just not a Pokemon for me. Even though I detested of Scizor's dominant strength thanks to Technician-boosted STAB Bullet Punches, I still had to respect its super strength. Luckily he doesn't get Earthquake, though.

    Scizor is cooler and stronger. That's why Scyther evolves into it.

    I take it back. This one is the silliest. They from the same line...

    However, I put Scizor for obvious reasons.

    Yes, but they have identical base stat totals, just spread out in different ways.

    I like speed, so I picked Scyther.
