Offensive Heatran w/ Air Balloon is a better Dragon check IMO, and also shits on sun teams. It fears nothing from any dragon except Surf from the Latis (which most Latis don't carry unless it's on a Rain team) and the rare Aqua Tail or Superpower Dragonite, and can run Hidden Power (Ice) to beat any dragon except the ones I just mentioned. Scizor doesn't like taking Choice Band coverage moves from Dragonite and Kyurem, or Fire Blasts from Salamence. Earthquakes also hurt it quite a bit.

Heatran @ Air Balloon
Timid - Flash Fire

-Hidden Power (Ice)
The idea is simple, fire off a Flame Charge on a switch and sweep. However, he can also neatly come in on just about any dragon as long as his Air Balloon is intact, and dispose of it with Hidden Power. Fire Blast is a devastating STAB that murders pretty much anything that doesn't resist it. Earth Power handles opposing Trans and Ninetales, and Hidden Power (Ice) is for Dragons. Flame Charge is my signature set, allowing him to boost his only truly poor stat and potentially sweep. This thing also has no problem handling Sun teams all on its own, since not even Dugtrio can take it out after a boost. The item is necessary to beat Salamence and Garchomp and whatnot who carry Earthquake. Also, turning a 4x weakness into a temporary immunity is always nice, and gives him tons of opportunities to switch in. The EV spread is simple, max Speed, max Sp. Atk, 4 Def. I prefer Timid because it lets him outpace bulky Venusaur after a single Flame Charge, but Modest is a viable option as well.
Alternatively a more conventional setter offensive Tran could be used, but that's so boring and such a waste of potential IMO.
