Scizor (Japanese: ハッサム Hassamu) is a Bug/Steel-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

Biology

Physiology

Scizor is a human-sized mantis similar to its evolutionary predecessor Scyther, with a thick, metallic red exoskeleton and crab-like claws. It is tougher and stronger than Scyther, but has lost its predecessor's speed. Instead, it spreads its wings to cool off, and flaps them very rapidly to heat up, or to blow air to cool itself off. While Scyther is a mantis-like predator, striking fast and simply evading potential pursuers, Scizor is coated with a red steel of sorts and is not quite as agile. Once it engages its foe, either in the wild or at the direction of a Pokémon Trainer in a Pokémon battle, it behaves more like Scyther, striking quickly with its powerful claws, raking more than pinching, and relying on its startling agility to evade attacks.

Gender differences

The difference between a male and female Scizor is by looking at the size of their black the three black pointed striped abdomen. The females have larger ones than the males.

Evolution

It evolves from Scyther by trade while holding a Metal Coat.

Trivia

  • It may appear from a Poké Ball in Super Smash Bros. Melee, its attack being flying around the stage and damaging anybody it comes into contact with.
  • Its claws resembles the head of Trapinch.
  • Scizors have crab-like pincers, but cannot learn Guillotine, nor can it learn Crabhammer.
  • Scizor has exactly the same stat total as its pre-evolution, Scyther, 500.
    • This makes it so it is the only Pokémon that doesn't change it's BST upon evolving.
  • Kingler and Scizor have the same species; The Pincer Pokémon.

Origin

Scizor shares traits with red ants and different species of mantis.

Etymology

Scizor is a mix of the words scissors and razor.

Its Japanese name, Hassam, comes from hasamu (to cut or snip off).
