Scizor with Choice Band is labeled one of the biggest Choice Band threats in competitive battling (OU). With access to the ability technician it can pull off a very strong threatening role. With supporting EVs and nature it just makes it even stronger.


Now for a moveset.

Struggling to be different from these other ones now.

Scizor @ Choice Band
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Bug Bite
- Bullet Punch
- Superpower
- Aerial Ace

Superpower is a must to hit steel types. Bullet Punch gets STAB + Band + Technician boost and is priority. Bug Bite is STAB + Technician + Band boost. And Aerial Ace will always hit, gets technician boost, and hits many fighting type Pokemon such as Breloom and Conkeldurr, harder than they want to be hit.

Yes.
Scizor is one of the Top-Tier threats in OU, with an Unrivaled 130 Attack Stat and Technician, making ut one if thr hardest hitting Priority (Bullet Punch) utilities in the Metagame without Boost.

The Choice Band is an excellent Item to Equip on Scizor as it Doubles it's already exceptional Attack into a terrifying 260, granting it instant Power as opposed to wasting a Turn Setting Up Swords Dance. Here is the suggested Set:

Scizor @ Choice Band
Trait: Technician
EVs: 184 HP / 252 Atk / 124 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- U-turn
- Bullet Punch
- Superpower
- Sleep Talk

The given EV Spread grants Scizor just the amount of Speed that it needs to get the jump on a Neutral 4 Spd Heatran, while also making use of that impressive Atk with Max EVs. The extra Bulk is just a plus. With its signature move in STAB+Technician+Choice Band Bullet Punch, .nothing that is weak against it will be survivng. U-turn ia its Pivotal STAB, while Superpower is for Coverage. Sleeo Talk Is there to absorb Spores

Yes, it is.

Scizor @ Choice Band
Ability: Technician
EVs: 244 HP, 252 Atk, 12 Sp. Def
Nature: Adamant/ Jolly
- Bullet Punch
- U-Turn
- Super Power
- Pursuit/ Bug Bite

But watch out for Magnet Pull Magnezone. Being slow & locked into one move spells doom for your Scizor.
