What's with all the Scizor hate?

#1jfx_zeroPosted 7/28/2013 10:37:45 AM
Seriously, like why does everyone hate Scizor so much? All I ever hear is negativity about it. Is it based on competitive use, aesthetics, or what?

People tend to rag on popular things so they can feel special.

I like Scizor because he's all smooth looking, polished, and red and more evil looking than Scyther.
I like Scyther because he's green.

I've used a scizor twice, but I still don't understand why people treat him like the god of the pokemon universe. He's not that great.

I dislike Scizor's design, but do respect his competitive prowess.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

1- he has technician-STAB bullet punch, the most powerful priority move in OU (extreme speed doesn't have many good STAB users other than Arceus)
2- he has the steel type, giving him enough bulk to pull off a SD or two
3- he has roost, giving him extra bulk and checking most choice users
4- his stats emphasize his useful bullet punch, with high atk and def
5- if you don't care about bullet punch, technician-STAB bug bite gives scissor a pseudo-mega horn, as well as giving a niche ability of screwing over any berry units
-1- he gets f***ed by fire types

His pros outweigh his cons, I can't see why he's getting any hate.
