    Default Rate my Scizor

    (is not sure what to put for a preamble)I have been wanting to use Amish my Scizor in the meta game and was wondering if this was a good set for him.

    Scizor @ Occa Berry
    Carfull nature (cant change this b/c hes a shiny)
    252 Hp/154 ATK/104 Def
    X-Scissor
    Bullet Punch
    Swords Dance
    Iron Defence

    Is this a good set?

    P.S: what is the standard set for a Scizor Nowadays?

    standard scizor sets are either the swords dance or the choice band. All scizor are adamant nature and have the ability technician.

    Swords dance set looks like this

    32 HP/252 ATK/224 Spe
    @ Life Orb

    Swords Dance
    Bullet Punch
    X-Scissor
    Brick Break/Superpower

    Choice Band set looks like this

    248 HP/252 Atk/8 Spe

    U-Turn
    Pursuit
    Superpower
    Bullet Punch

    occa berry has no place on scizor even if you run Special defense and a fire reducing berry, no matter what, scizor is going to get ohkod by most common fire attacks.
    the dancing butterfly just 6-0d your team

    I reckon you should go with CB - Bullet punch is stupidly strong, and should be great late sweeper to get rid of scraps - 40 base power + STAB + Technician + CB. Thats 90 power + the extra power of choice band, and that will do you well. My personal way of using scizor is using U-Turn the turn it comes in, which usually gives some free damage

    The SD set can't provide that, and while its stronger, its just not the late game sweeper CBzor is. Try it out on shoddy before you decide though, one will be better for the team

    Bear in mind, I reccomend you also have something like latias if you're using legendaries, which can soak up most of the hits that may be pointed at scizor, which is always a positive
