Mine has the ability Swarm. It knows:

Swords Dance: Increases its already great attack even more.

Iron Head: Good power, high accuracy, good chance to cause flinching, STAB.

X-Scissor: Good power, high accuracy, STAB.

Night Slash: Decent power, high accuracy, good chance for critical hit.

I think you should throw in an aerial ace instead of swords dance can be handy if your opponent will have good evasion!! I agree with all the other attacks but strenght

Scizor moveset.

@BrightPowder Adamant Nature.

  • X-Scissor: STAB. Decent power , used on Swords Dance.

  • Bullet Punch: STAB. Decent power on Swords Dance.

  • Swords Dance: HAX on X-Scissor and Bullet Punch.

Least but not least....

  • Baton Pass: Use it for atleast a Fire Type.

This is the moveset you might need.

Scizor (M) @ Choice Specs

Trait: Technician

EVs: 36 HP / 252 SAtk / 220 Spd

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Vacuum Wave
  • Silver Wind
  • Hidden Power [Ground] (Base Power 60)
  • Flash Cannon / Air Slash

So you are having fun with your Swords Dance Sweeping Scizor, and all of a sudden Magnezone moves into OU and starts killing him with Hidden Power Fire + Magnet Pull. But then you suddenly have a wild idea - Specs Scizor. Vacuum Wave for technician and priority, silver wind for main STAB, HP Ground for killing Magnezone and Flash Cannon for secondary STAB, or Air Slash for coverage.
220 Speed EVs should be used to outrun Sub + 3 Attacks Magnezone and Specs Magnezone. Without Choice Scarf, Scizor can't outrun Scarfed Magnezone, so beware of that.

Hidden Power Ground (60 Base Power) vs 248/252 Magnezone - 118 - 141 % (Always OHKO)
Silver Wind vs 252/252+ Celebi - 100 - 119 % (Guaranteed OHKO)
Silver Wind vs 252/4 Espeon - 88 - 104 % (25 % chance to OHKO)
Air Slash vs 252/0 Conkeldurr - 53 - 63 % (Guaranteed 2HKO)
Vacuum Wave vs 0/0 Cloyster - 97 - 114 % (83 % chance to OHKO)
Hidden Power Ground (60 Base Power) vs 0/0 Infernape - 84 - 100 % (2 % Chance to OHKO, always an OHKO with Stealth Rock and a layer of Spikes)
Hidden Power Ground (60 Base Power) vs 252/4 Heatran - 92 - 108 % (OHKO after Stealth Rock, 53 % otherwise)
Silver Wind vs 252/0 Reuniclus - 75 - 89 % (Guaranteed 2HKO)

Alternatively you could have "252+ Atk Choice Band Scizor U-turn vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Celebi: 756-892 (187.12 - 220.79%) -- guaranteed OHKO "
its completely unnecessary to run Choice Specs with its pathetic SAtk. It would be pushing NU with this set. Why people post this type of variant is beyond me :D
I would personally not use it, however some people may want to. It also surprises some people and takes out pokemon Scizor may not otherwise be able to take out.

Scizor @ Iron Plate
Trait: Technician
Nature: Adamant (+Attack -Special Attack)
EVs: 252 Attack 252 HP 4 Special Defence

-Roost/Protect Depends on what suits you better
-Swords Dance You would not believe how many sweeps I have done with a +6 Scizor
-Bullet Punch STAB + Priority
-Bug Bite/Ariel Ace Once again depends on what suits you better. For STAB, go for BB. To
counter fighting types, use AA. Both get a technician boost.

Defog support Scizor
Scizor

U-turn me on (Scizor) (M) @ Leftovers/Scizorite
Ability: Technician
EVs: 252 HP / 56 Atk / 200 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Roost
- Bullet Punch
- U-turn
- Defog

Unlike most defoggers Scizor has a large amount of resistances, attacks from the physical side, and isn't too afraid of dark or rock types. These reasons and it's abilities as a pivot give it a support niche. Roost allows it to tank repeated hits, while bullet punch and u-turn allow scizor to use the massive attack stat of his. Leftovers can be used for longer staying power, while Scizorite may be used if one desires more offensive ability and does not have another mega on the team
