Scyther + Eviolite?

Would this work?
I mean if it did that would make his overall stats very high.
Wouldn't this give scyther 120 in both defenses while still having a base of 105 in speed and 110 in attack?

I don't get the point of a defensive sweeper
The defense would probally be enough to set up atleast two swords dances without being mudered, then sweep.
Right, J98. But sweeping or not, Scyther Rules!

It would, but do you really want to have a Pokemon built for sweeping be a wall? And a very poor wall at that. I mean, Bug/Flying typing isn't the best walling type. You're better off gving him a Life Orb. He has Technician remember, so his moves do more damage than you'd think.

I don't want him to be a wall, I only want him to be able to take a hit without dying when I'm using Swords Dance
Then give him a focus sash!
Then priority would kick my butt....
What are you talking about!?
I swords dance, I take a blow. 1 hp. Any kind of priority move could take me out like that.
I see...well its your pokemon, hope you come up with a good idea!^^
Dang, I voted this up.. Who the crap voted it down?
