    Nature: Modest/Timid
    EVs: 4 HP, 252 Atk, 252 Speed

    ooo truee ay, this is a pretty nice set on scizor. Except i use a choice banned adamant one though ^.^
    It just has soo much more coverage on things, you can even 2 hitko those pesky sand sharks.

    Nice suggestion, I'll have to try that sometime. Or something my brother showed me is the ninjask and baton pass some speed boost and swords dance into scizor and enjoy the fire works
    Kind of off the current topic but they need to release a bug eeveelution I would use it all the time!
    I claim Leafeon, Hydreigon & Volcarona!

    the set xerneas96 mentioned is the one i use
    i love it because it's so annoying and has great staying power in battle
    also bullet punch allows you to finish a battle up nice and neat and bug bite can let you heal or cure a status condition depends on what berry your opponent has
    but i have used that choice band scizor before as well

    Ask me stupid stuff

    Yeah that is true, often you are able to set up a few sword dances on some of those stallers n stuff and toxic doesnt work on scizor as well so that would be quite convenient.

    I was wondering if anyone uses shuckle ay, cause i tried it out a long time ago with the move( i forgot its name) that switch's its offensive and defensive stats.
    I no it could work with a trick room abuse team but even if thats the cause as soon as you use that power switch move you'll be vulnerable and thats hard to get up as well as a trickroom.

    i use shuckle all the time but mostly in double battles
    two words: Guard Swap
    put him in a double battle with say a crustle or a forrestress
    or even volcarona if you are using a bulky quiver dance set
    it makes most of your walls even harder to break down and gives your sweepers better staying power

    Also a fun but risky strategy, is use trick room with someone, then once you have shuckle out use power trick
    this swaps his massive defense stat with his attack stat and makes him an insane sweeper

    What I've seen a few people do is use him to set up a blissey in a trick room. He used shell smash and guard swap in a double battle and made blissey a nightmare for me. I almost killed it but it was just so unexpected. I didn't expect blissey to be a problem and shuckle made it a problem

    I'm not really into competitive play that much so I'm going to change the subject if you don't mind.
    does anyone here think that any bug pokemon deserve an evolution?
    I personally think that shuckle should get an evo because he just seems so underrated
    I know that then eviolite shuckle would be a nightmare to face so I doubt it will get an evo
    but I can still hope
    I have claimed Scizor, the king of Bug-Types.

    I reckon Pinsir should get one, and be a dual Bug/Fight type

    I agree with you, I'm trying to think of others but nothing comes to mind.

    If anything I think pinsir's evolution should be bug and dark if he gets one.
    It would be an amazing defensive and offensive typing and with a little help in maybe the speed stat area he would be unstoppable

    Yes and his dex description would fit if he gained the dark type upon evolution, since it already makes Pinscir seem like this ferocious beast.

    He's really sinister too especially in emerald version. He always looks like he's plotting to take over the world or to pinch everyone's head off haha.
    That would be really great if they gave pinsir an evolution though because he's often outclassed by heracross when people consider which one to put in their team

    Being a Dark type would just outclass him more, since he'll be weak against both of Heracross' STAB moves, which are already powerfull to begin with.

    Also, it would be weak against it's own type, Bug. (I guess Leavanny did too, but they look awesome, and they have plus points for being Grass typed)


    And, before anybody comments on it being competetive in that sense, it also has the problem ingame anyway, and I didn't factor in competetive anyway, if I did, it would be so much worse.




    EDIT: Wha- WHAT HAPPENED TO MY SURSKIT/MASQUERAIN USERBAR!? WHY WAS IT DELETED!?

    I think they should give an unique type for Pinsir's evolution and Bug/Dark seems interesting, even if it make Pinsir hugely outclassed by Heracross, not that it matters at all.

    Sigh,,, maybe, but I personally dislike it changing. I likr the idea of Pinsir being Dark, but I don't like that sort of change.

    Oh, but, it would be so novelty! The only Dark Type of Gen I! Then people will HAVE (yeah right) to like Bugs! So, maybe it should?

    In case you don't use bug types much, let me remind you that bug resisits fighting so it would do normal damage.
    A dark stab sucker punch from a bug/dark pinsir would do half damage yes but it would still bring it down to x.5 because it's a stab. And with a strong priority like that it would do some serious damage to heracross

    Wait, bug resists fighting? I thought it was the other way around. Well, now I know that all my Gen V games are glitched.

    And, because it's stab, but it resists, it would be x0.75 the regular damage.

    Oh yeah my bad. My calculations were off
    And yup that's why bug/steel only has fire as a weakness. That's why I absolutely love using scizor and crustle together to counter scizors only weakness. It works pretty well

    Oh, yeah. I actually wish there was a Bug/Stewl with Heatproof, for having no weaknesses.

    It wouldn't do that. I just looked it up on bulbapedia and it said this: Heatproof halves the damage done by Fire-type attacks and the burn status ailment.
    If you had a bug steel with heatproof holding an occa berry, that would bring down the damage a lot. What I do with my durant most of the time is make him hold an occa berry so that fire only does 2x compared to 4x damage

    Lol.

    I'm not getting why people want Pinsir to evolve. All I want for Pinsir is a better movepool. They're counterparts, after all. It wouldn't be fair if Durant got a second evolution if Heatmor didn't. Unless both Heracross and Pinsir evolves, I'm not sure I'll want Pinsir to evolve. Just give it a better movepool.

    Yeah, I know. But if it were to have the ability you wouldn't have to use Occa, and use something better/different.


    But really, I just want to see a Bug/Ice.
