Scizor(s) (シザー(ズ), Shizā(zu)) is a dual Bug/Steel-type Pincer Scissors Pokémon that is known to be the evolved form of Scyther when holding a Metal Coat.


Voice actor: Eric Stuart (both English and Japanese)

Scizor has a similar appearance to its evolutionary predecessor Scyther, except with a thick, red metallic exoskeleton. Instead of scythes, Scizor now has crab-like claws, with yellow-and-black eye-like patterns on them. Scizor has two-toed feet with one clawed toe in front and the other in the back. Scizor has a pair of retractable, two-lobed wings, similar to that of a butterfly. Aside from its primarily red coloration, Scizor has accentuations of black on its neck, chest, and abdomen, and yellow eyes. Its height is 5'11" and weight is 260.1 lbs.

Gender differencesEdit

The female Scizor has a bigger abdomen than the male.


Special abilitiesEdit

Scizor's abilities are similar but adjusted versions of Scyther's. While it cannot match its pre-evolution's speed, it is stronger, more durable, and more resistant, while also being capable of learning Steel-type moves. It has a steel-hard body and can crush hard objects with its pincers.


Scizor are known to upraise their claws and wave them around to scare off predators or foes, as their claws look like two heads. A Scizor's wings are not meant for flying but rather used to control body temperature; however, Scizor have been seen being able to 'glide' with their wings in the anime, by doing things such as riding wind currents, suggesting that their wings still possess minimal flight capability.


They usually live in grassland areas.
