Scizor (Japanese: ハッサム Hassam) is a dual-type Bug/Steel Pokémon.

It evolves from Scyther by trade with a Metal Coat.

Biology

Physiology

Scizor has a similar appearance to its evolutionary predecessor Scyther, except with a thick, metallic exoskeleton, which comes at the expense of much of the speed Scyther had. Scizor also has crab-like claws with eye-like patterns on them that bear a faint resemblance to a Trapinch's head. Scizor has two-toed feet with one toe in front and the other in the back. Scizor has two-lobed wings like a butterfly.

Gender differences

The female Scizor has a bigger abdomen than the male.

Special abilities

Scizor may not be as fast as Scyther, but it's basically stronger than Scyther in many other aspects.

Behavior

Scizor are known to upraise their claws and wave them around to scare others, as their claws look like two heads. A Scizor's wings are not meant for flying but rather used to cool down body temperature, however Scizor have been seen flying with wings in the Pokémon anime.

In the anime

Minnie's Scizor in action.
was first seen under the ownership of a trainer named Shingo who thought he could always predict the outcome of a match by the database on his computer in Wired For Battle.

Vicious used a Scizor to retrieve Celebi in Pokémon 4Ever.

Gary Oak used a Scizor against Ash in The Ties That Bind.

In A Judgment Brawl, Katie used a Scizor to battle Ash's Swellow during the Hoenn League. Katie's Scizor lost despite it having the type advantage.

In Curbing the Crimson Tide, a girl named Luna had a Scizor disguise itself as "Red Lightning". Red Lightning went around a city, battling other people's Pokémon. Red Lightning would then scribble on the defeated Pokémon's face. The disguised Scizor's reign of terror ended when Ash's Pikachu blasted its costume off and when Ash's Sceptile defeated it in battle.

It also appeared in Gymbaliar! under the ownership of a girl named Minnie. It fought against Brock's Croagunk and lost.

A Scizor appeared in DP088.

In the manga

Pokémon Special

Scizor is first seen in Template:PSV under the control of Green, having evolved from his Scyther prior to the events of the volume. He brings it on his journey to the Sevii Islands.

In the TCG

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Scizor is a more dangerous version of Marill. Not only does it do more damage but it will fly around the screen targeting an opponent.

Trophy information

This evolved form of Scyther has arms ending in large pincers with distinctive eye-spot markings. It's unable to fly very far with its wings, but it can affect its body temperature by flapping them at high speeds. Its sleek look has made Scizor quite popular among collectors.

Trivia

  • In all of its backsprites, its wings do not appear.
  • Although Scizor cannot learn the move Fly and its Pokédex entries and in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon say that Scizor doesn't use its wings to fly, Scizor has a modified version of flying in the anime. In the anime episode Curbing the Crimson Tide, Brock notes that the gusts of wind blowing around the tall buildings on which they stood were helping Luna's Scizor to 'fly' around them.
  • Scizor shares the same species name with Kingler. They are both known as Pincer Pokémon, though Scizor has also been called the Scissors Pokémon.
  • Despite having different base stats, Scizor and its pre-evolution, Scyther, have the same base stat total: 500.
  • Scizor's cry seems to be a modified version of that of Heracross. This usually happens only with Pokémon related by evolution.
  • Scizor along with Skarmory and Empoleon are the only Pokémon to get S.T.A.B from Steel Wing.

Origin

Scizor appears to share characteristics with flying red ants.

Name origin

Scizor's name is a corruption of scissor. Its Japanese name is a corruption of 剪む hasamu, to clip or snip.
