I really like Scolipede he's another good addition to the ever pathetic bug type. His lead set is really great as Game pointed out he threatens things that might try to reflect his hazards and thanks to great speed he can usually get down 2 layers reliably which is sometimes all you need to win. I don't particularly like his sweeping sets because I feel like he's not hitting hard enough and he doesn't have the coverage to really do work like others. As a bug type sweeper he's pretty much outclassed by Scizor who is stronger and has priority or even Heracross who can just spam powerhouse attacks to beat stuff.
