001Bulbasaur RG.png Due to special coding in place in the article, the artwork featured on this article will change every year on November 21 and October 15 in celebration of the releases of Gold and Silver in Japan, and Gold and Silver in the United States. This will only affect the artwork shown in the infobox. This changes every year, so when the time comes, here to return to the page and change the display.

Seeing red

In the episode Showdown at Dark City it was stated that Scyther hate the color red. So how can it evolve into the Red pokemon Scizor?SLE_Aman

Well, for one thing, Scizor wasn't created yet. Secondly, Scyther and Scizor are two different Pokémon, and how one feels probably doesn't affect the other upon evolution. Thirdly, it was never shown other than in that episode, and was probably just a reference to the myth that bulls hate the colour red (it's actually the waving of the cape that makes them charge; it could be powder blue for all they care). --DarkfireTaimatsu 06:36, 24 November 2007 (UTC)
I wonder if Scizor hates green. xD --Ricco 14:33, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Platinum Sprites

Why do the Female Platinum Sprites show it's second pose? People are going to think that the female has a whole different pose than the male! We should keep the same pose, especially since it is MUCH easier to see the gender difference if they use the same pose... And isn't that one of the whole reasons we display both male and female sprites?~m190049~talk 05:51, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

I agree. Male and female sprites need to show the same pose. SharKing 23:16, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
Well, it's been over 2 weeks and no one has fixed the Sprite Problem. I would do it; but I live in the US, and don't own a copy of Plt. §hin¥£iΨ@chµ 21:05, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Don't worry i have it. Its also obvious that the shiny 'female' sprite is edited since ther is a black background in spaces. Hellkaiserryo12 23:04, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Type Advantage

This article claims that Scizor has a type advantage over Swellow... but I'm sure it doesn't? Gastly's mama 18:37, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

RSE Sprites

Should someone say in the trivia that the RSE Sprites are orange while GSC Sprites were red?--Pokelova 03:40, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Edit request

Which hopefully isn't ignored like all my others In the Trivia section:

*Scizor has the highest [[Attack]] stat of all [[Bug]] type [[Pokemon]] and is second only to {{p|Metagross}} for highest [[Attack]] of all [[Steel]] type [[Pokemon]].
Should be:
*Scizor has the highest {{stat|Attack}} stat of all {{type2|Bug}} [[Pokémon]] and is second only to {{p|Metagross}} for highest {{stat|Attack}} of all {{type2|Steel}} [[Pokémon]].--Liquid ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 22:08, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

We're ignoring them for a reason. Having few intervening edits will make it easier to change the template again if we need to. Hopefully this whole thing will blow over soon and you can fix it yourself. —darklordtrom 22:10, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Learn your freakin' math.

"Scizor has the highest powered priority move as of Platinum, Bullet Punch, counting Technician and STAB."

Not true at all. That title still belongs to Absol's Sucker Punch. They have the same Attack, and...

With STAB and Technician, Bullet Punch has 90 base Power.
With STAB, Sucker Punch has 120 base Power.

That is all. SharKing Productions 04:36, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

True, but is this only for variations of Quick-Attack, or for all priority? Because Sucker Punch won't have any effect if the opponent isn't using a damaging attack. R.A. Hunter Blade 16:23, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
It's based the power of all priority moves, not just Quick Attack variants. It also doesn't matter if it misses/fails; the comparison is based solely on how powerful the move is. In that comparison, Absol's Sucker Punch reigns supreme. SharKing Productions 18:04, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

sprite replacement

Could anyone replace scizor's Platinum shiny male sprite? Its slighty different colored than the other shiny sprites. Thanks. Nickvang 18:41, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Not available to be seen without trading.

Hello, there. On Golem's and Mandibuzz's page it is mentioned that they can't be seen in the PokéDex without trading. And I think that applies to Scizor as well.

However, there is a chance I might be wrong and there is an in-game trainer I'm not aware of.

I mean, I did think that Ledian was like that but since somebody reverted my edit and pointed out that I was wrong, but if I'm right that there is no in-game trainer that has a Scizor, it might be worth adding to the trivia section.

I promise you, I will not make that edit unless people agree with me. So what do you guys say? TheBlazikenMaster (talk) 21:44, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Double Team?

Scyther learns Double Team at level 37. However, according the the page, Scizor only learns it via TM and cannot learn it via prior evolution, obviously being contradictory. Should this be changed? - unsigned comment from Dralcax (talkcontribs)

That stuff is only for moves that can be learned only by previous stage. Marked +-+-+ (talk) 18:29, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
