Is my Bold Scyther worth training?

0 votes

I have a Scyther with 6x31 IV but it has a bold nature. Is it worth training?

I would get a new one, but I think bold COULD work if you want to use a defensive scizor or something. ;3;
Its a 6iv scyther, nature wont change much, just go with a regular set, your scyther will be bulkier then others but less stronger since bold is +def -Atk
Just breed it holding Destiny Knot for a better Nature, plus you get to keep some of the IVs.
Will you evolve it?

Well yes, unless you want a defensive scyther/scizor

Different sets for each evolution if you plan on using either one

Set for Scyther:

Scyther @Leftovers
Trait: whatever ability you have
Bold Nature
Evs: 252 Def, 252 Spe, 4 Atk
-u turn
-knock off
-Whatever move you want

Set for Scizor:

Scizor @Leftovers
Trait: Whatever ability you have
Bold Nature
Evs: 252 Hp, 252 Def, 4 Atk
-u turn
-bullet punch
-knock off

Thank you! This is a really helpful answer :D I think I'm gonna keep him as a Scyther since he's faster.  Thanks for adding in Ev tips as well, saves me having to ask again! For the move that I can choose, do you think  I should keep silver wind since he already has it?
No problem :) and you shouldn't keep silver wind on it because its Special Attack really isn't the best
That's true... I'll have to think of a good move then XD
