I'm still debating about using Mega Scizor or Lucario, what you guys think? Also, I'm starting at competitive now, after lots and lots of years playing pokemon, so I don't know if the Natures are optimized and don't know which items to use in each poke.

Thanks again for the patience and info!

Mega Scizor runs a Bulky Swords Dance set like no one else.
Mine has Bullet Punch, Swords Dance, Roost, and U-Turn and it's fantastic.

Just a thought.
I was once modded for illegal activity because I made a topic asking for advice on nicknaming my Pokemon.

Yeah. If you're using M!Scizor, you should either be running a roost or swords dance set tbh...

I feel that Lucario would appreciate Vacuum Wave.

Also, you may wish to look into other options on countering Fire and Ground. Maybe Bronzong or Empoleon.

Yeah, I'm still waiting for the pokebank, so I can somehow get a Heatran :(

Your Scizor would benefit better from a choice band rather than a mega stone with that move pool. If you want Mega Scizor, use his bulky swords dance set. It's amazing.

I wonder if Lucario'll get more benefits due to Adaptability. Then I could run a Choice Scizor..
