I keep losing to my friend's Scizor. Help me.

Flareon - Opponent switches to something else, or sword dances until it can one-hit KO my Flareon. Once Flareon is gone, my team has nothing to counter with.

Espeon - Scizor resists psychic and faerie, and has super effective bug moves.

Sylveon - Scizor resists bug and grass, and has supper effective bug moves.

Umbreon - Scizor has super effective bug moves.

Sylveon - Scizor has super effective bug and steel moves.

Glaceon - Scizor has super effective steel moves.

Vaporeon - Scizor resists ice moves, and ghost and water only do neutral damage. Vaporeon doesn't learn anything to boost its special attack.

Jolteon - Electric only does neutral damage, and he Jolteon has no moves that raise his special attack. If Scizor builds up with Swords Dance, it can KO Jolteon.

How is bug super effective on fairy?

There are a couple of solutions to this. The first one is to use flareon and the second one is to use vaporeon.

Assuming that you can reset evs and natures, you can use this set:
[email protected] Orb
Ability: Guts
EVs: 212 HP/ 156 Atk / 100 Def / 12 SpD /28 Spe
Adamant Nature
-Flare Blitz/Fire fang
- Will-o-wisp
- Superpower
With guts activated, flareon has its attack boosted by one, which gives it more power. Flare blitz or Fire Fang ohko's scizor, but Flare Blitz can be used to do serious damage to other Pokemon. Will-o-wisp allows you to burn scizor so its attack can be halved. The rest of the moves are coverage moves. Speed evs allow Flareon to outspeed no speed investment scizor.

Alternatively, you can use a second set.

[email protected]
Ability: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 HP/ 252 Def
Impish Nature
-Flare Blitz

This set takes a more defensive approach because of the maxed defense and hp stats. Wish and Protect allow you to heal off damage done to Flareon by using wish then protect. Leftovers allow you to gain some hp back each turn, and will-o-wisp can burn scizor.

As for vaporeon, this is a rather shaky check, but it should suffice.

[email protected] Helmet
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def

This is a rather interesting set that forces scizor to switch out. Wish and Protect are used for healing, and scald is used to try to get a 30% burn chance. As for yawn, vaporeon should use this on the first turn, which would make scizor fall asleep on the second turn if scizor does not switch out. Maximum defenses allow you to live most attacks (and live a +2 technician bug bite 68.7% of the time). Rocky helmet deals 17% passive damage to scizor each time it hits vaporeon (barring protects).

With an all eevolution team I think your best bet is to use jolteon to paralyze it and then either keep hitting it with electric moves, or switch to vaporeon to take the hits that get through and wish the damage away.

Or you could start with vaporeon and start using scald and hope you get a burn on it early.

Jolteon can use Thunder Wave to paralyse Scizor, with its speed down you just have to predict well. Flareon should have a good switch as it resists bug and steel (plus Jolteon resists flying), Flare Blitz should kill before Scizor makes contact, priority moves like Vacuum Wave now have a 25% (I think?) chance of not landing. Any other factors (Sash, Lum, HP Ground) I will leave up to you.

Priority moves have their normal accuracy... Also Flare Blitz would be a suicide bomb as Flareon has low HP
If you force Scizor to switch out, then it could come back later in battle when your Pokémon are weak.

Well,Its Scizor. If its double battle the best to do is FlameThrower The Opposing Scizor Unless he OH-KO's,Then your best thing is to Thunder Wave The Scizor,Once It cant move Your good to go with ThunderBolt/Thunder. Hope I helped!

Flareon will not do a lot with flamethrower since he is attack based no special attack
