Best Builds For Each Pokemon

Scizor Strategy Guide

Scizor Strengths & Weaknesses

Strengths
Equipped with dash moves that help it moves through the lanes quickly, escape pursuers, and can be used to dodge attacks from opponents. A more offensive-focused dash move called Swords Dance boosts Scizor or Scyther's attack stat which you can use to initiate in battles.
Gets an additional firepower damage from either Green And Red Illusion Dive it can use to finish off targets.
Its passive ability, Technician, enables you to quickly deliver greater damage. The Pokemon's subsequent Standard Attack will deal two hits in a row after each usage of a move, with the second hit dealing less damage.
Weaknesses
Excels in 1v1 but struggles when battling multiple enemies.
Not effective against Pokemon with crowd controls unless you lock them down.
Can be countered by Pokemon who are also capable of closing distances very quickly and/or dealing high burst damage like Absol or Zeraora.
Has long cooldowns so you won't be able to use them as frequently.

Recommended Lanes

The number of ★ shows the level on a particular route area.

LaneRoute Details
TopTop Recommendation level: ★★・
Because team conflicts do not occur here throughout the early and mid stages, it is the safest lane to level up. Scizor may use its tremendous mobility and dash attacks to its advantage. However, because Scizor may participate in both the top and bottom, it is better to offer it to an ally that needs to prioritize their levels.
MiddleMiddleRecommendation level: ★★・
It's the easiest lane to level up since you can freely farm Exp as team clashes don't occur here during the early and mid stages. Dodrio can take advantage of its high mobility and surprise attacks. However, since Dodrio can also play an active role in the top and bottom, its best to give it to an ally that needs to prioritize their leveling.
BottomBottomRecommendation level: ★★★
The battle on the bottom lane is less intense than on the top lane. Going down the bottom lane is the best option since it allows you to steadily increase your level especially when equipped with Attack Weight.

When using Scizor, you should prioritize activating +4% attack with 6 types of brown support medals. It is recommended to use the remaining 4 slots with white support medals to increase attack.

All Pokemon Boost Emblems List

Early Game (Lvl 1~) Strategy

Easy To Chase Enemies And Escape Pursuers

All of its moves have a dash effect aside from Dual Wingbeat making it mobile and able to get close to its targets. You can use this to dodge attacks and Unite Moves. With its incredible speed and short cooldowns working to its advantage, Scizor can attack swiftly to steal the last hits from objectives in team fights.

Fight Aggressively When You Have An Advantage

When you see that your lane opponent has a lower level or HP than you, you can use it to your advantage to take it out swiftly so you'll get them out of the way and score goals uninterrupted.

Prioritize Evolving

Scyther has evolved at level 5, which is quite early compared to other Pokemon, so it's best to reduce the amount of unnecessary fighting you do whenever possible and focus on last hitting Wild Pokemon to gain Exp. Only engage in a lane push if your ally is present.

Mid Game (Lvl 5~) Strategy

Stay As Scyther Or Evolve To Scizor

When you reach level 5 you will have to choose either staying as Scizor or evolving into Scyther, both having unique mechanics that may significantly affect their impact on the team balance. Make sure to choose wisely as your move upgrades vary.

Gank At Lvl 5

Once you've got your Bouffalant Buff and are level 5, head over to an available lane and attempt a gank. Don't overextend or fight on top of the enemy's goals unless you're sure you can get a kill! Try to get the advantage on an overextended enemy with Bullet Punch.

Late Game (Lvl 9~) Strategy

Two Unite Moves

When you reach level 9 and learn your Unite Move, you will be able to meet most of your opponents head-on. Green Illusion Dive, is best employed for rapidly dispatching single foes whereas Red Illusion Dive works best in the middle of a conflict when you need a surge of power to slow down your opponent with debuffs and stuns. In any situation, your Unite Move will be useful during the battle.

Take Out Squishies Near Zapdos

In the late game, you'll nearly always face off against the opposing team at Zapdos. Circle the perimeter and wait for enemy squishies to arrive. Then, using your agility, leap in and eliminate them.
