Well, both are great Pokemon.

If you choose Lucario, choose Iron Head over Flash Cannon. And maybe a Life Orb over Choice band as you do not want to get locked into Extreme Speed when versing a Magnezone with Magnet Pull. Psychic could be used but I would not suggest it. it can be useful sometime so I would say keep it. Extreme Speed and Close Combat are a must because of this is Lucario. Overall: Above Average Pokemon

I love your Scizor. U-turn on a Choice Scarf set has been proven soooo useful. Super Power is great for massive power with his Attack stat. Bullet Punch for priority is also useful on this set. Pursiut would be used for fleeing Ghost/Psychic types I am supposing? Overall: Great Pokemon.

I love both of these Pokemon so I cannot exactly tell you which one to take. but from an experienced Pokemon player, chose Scizor due to his power, type defenses, and usefulness on this particular team.

Thanks. its good to hear that i put together a half decent Scizor spread. Scizors are so hard to make a good set because its so common in OU and Uber. its always that one subtle thing that you do different that seems to make or break a set. So im glad that this one looks promising. thanks for the help :)
