252+ SpA Mega Charizard Y Fire Blast vs. -2 0 HP / 0- SpD Scyther in Sun: 5968-7024 (2123.8 - 2499.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO

I edited Fire Blast so that it is 150 power, the same as Blast Burn, and I made Scyther Bug/Grass.

I also made the assumptions of Scyther having 0 SDef IVs and Charizard having 31 SAtk IVs and 252 SAtk EVs since without the exact EV or IV count there would be no way to get an accurate calc. If this causes problems for you I can change it.

The question never end said that Charizard was eved trained and the sun was out.
Charizard Y has Drought. And I made a note a about the EVs/IVs in my answer.
Thanks!

The following algorithm is how to calculate damage:

Damage = ((((2 * Level / 5 + 2) * AttackStat * AttackPower / DefenseStat) / 50) + 2) * STAB * Weakness/Resistance * RandomNumber / 100

So, I will just make up certain things:

Level: 100
Sp. Attack Stat: 170 (slightly larger base stat)
Base Power: 150
Sp. Defense Stat (Scyther): 60 (slightly lower base stat)
STAB: 1.5
Weakness/Resistance: 1.5
RandomNumber: 100

So, the formula BECOMES...

Damage = ((((2 * 100 / 5 + 2) * 170 * 150 / 60) / 50) + 2) * 1.5 * 1.5 * 100 / 100
Damage = (((42 * 170 * 150 / 60) / 50) + 2) * 1.5 * 1.5 * 100/100
Damage = ((17,850 / 50) + 2) * 1.5 * 1.5 * 100 / 100
Damage = (357 + 2) * 1.5 * 1. 5 * 100/100
Damage = 359 * 1.5 * 1.5 * 100/100
Damage = 538.5 * 1.5 * 100/100
Damage = 807.75 * 100/100
Damage = 8,0775 / 100
Damage = 807.75
Damage = ~808

Metal Sound halves Scyther's defense, therefore doubling the power to 1616. Forest Curse also gives it another 1.5 weakness thing, making it 2424.

Until you actually give exact things, then that's roughly the answer. :3

TL;DR: The answer is roughly 2424 damge.

Hope I helped. :)

Probaly enough to OHKO the scyther.

Scythers sp. def is a low 80, and taking damage from Charizard Y with a base stat of 159 in sp. atk with STAB, taking metal sound(-2 sp. def), and making fire types be 4x super effective will kill it.

Modest and the + sp. defense will cancel each other out

There will be more negative affects for scyther than postitive
