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 can be a beast, but it also is fragile if you're not careful. After all, it may only be weak to Fire, but Fire-Types and Fire-Type attacks can be out there to hurtcha. So here;s something I got for a Technician build;

Nature: Adamant or Jolly
Ability: Technician
EVs: Attack, Speed, and HP
Attacks:Fury Cutter or Bug Bite/Bullet Punch/Aerial Ace/Pursuit
Held Item: Life Orb or Muscle Band

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

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

Least but not least....

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

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

Bulky Sweeper Set:

Scizor @ Flying Gem
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252Atk, 252Def, 6HP
Adamant Nature

Acrobatics: (the Technician boost plus flying Gem boost plus the no item held boost will put the base power of this tech well into the 200s making it one of the most powerfull moves with no set up required. Then add in Scizors natural Atk power and you will sweep most anything. After the first use though the base power will drop to 165)
Bullet Punch (Stab/Priority)
Bug Bite (Stronger Stab than x-scissor when boosted via technician plus eats opponents berry)
Last Slot can go to a couple of different things: roost for survivability, Swords Dance for sweeping, Pursuit for when they switch to get their fire type, or my favorite Thief due to the added power boost from technician plus stealing the opponents held item if you have already used Acrobatics. Hope this helded

So here is one of the rare mega move sets.

Scizor-Mega @ Scizorite
Ability: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 20 Def / 236 SpD
Careful Nature
- Bullet Punch
- Swords Dance
- X-Scissor/Bug Bite
- Roost/Night Slash

Ok, now lets talk about the strategy behind the set. Given it's defense stats, it should be able to take a hit while using Swords Dance. You can go for another (probably) if the opponent switches out. Now you can go for a Bullet Punch, which goes from a base power of 90 damage (x2.25 thank to stab and technician) to an incredible 180 damage, which means you can take out most of the team, if not all. If the opponent is slow, then maybe you can go for something like X-Scissor, Bug Bite or Night Slash. Bug Bite does 90 damage thanks to technician (opposed to an 80 damage X-Scissor, 120 with stab) and 135 damage with stab. Bug Bite also eats the opponent's berry, so it's a better choice than X-Scissor. Roost is there for some nice sustain, and Night Slash is for coverage (I like Roost better though).

I really hoped this helped! I put a lot of effort into this!

Ability: swarm(technician)
Role: Last resort sweeper
Nature: Brave/Adamant
X-Scissor: this Pokémon was practically made to use this move! STAB

Bullet Punch: STAB, priority, powered up by technician, and get rid of those annoying fairies!

Brick Break: Coverage

Roost: heal yourself and keep going!

I use this moveset for my scizor and it works well both in-game and in competitions! PS: the reason for no swords dance is that with scizor's already awesome attack, why waste a turn that could cost you a match?
