PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So I have just started getting into trying to play competetive with the easy EV system that is Pokemon X/Y.

I recently hatched myself a shiny Scyther with these nature/personality/IV
Adamant Nature (+atk, -sp.atk)
Personality (Likes to trash about)
IV: Above Average.

Would you still use it for competitive? I would assume not, but the shinyness is what makes the thing even more pimp, I do after all have great personality and nature.

There are two ways you could go about doing this. 1) boost what Scyther already has with speed and attack EV's, or 2) give it a boost in its weak spots with defense and special defense EV's. I would go with 1, but its up to you.
