Bulky Swords Dance or Choice Banded Scizor?

#1forceboyPosted 2/3/2014 8:52:42 AM
What set do you guys prefer? I currently have a Bulky Swords Dance Scizor w/ Scizorite and I'm thinking whether the Choice Banded one is stronger and better. Is a Banded Technician STAB boosted Bullet Punch really THAT powerful to consider it over going mega?

Can Scizor get bulky enough to survive the impending Fire attack to be able make more than one use of its Swords Dance?

Honest question, I don't know Scizor very well.

Mega scizor has the luxury of being able to switch between moves. The choice band set acts as a revenge killer I find.

Mega scizor has more physical and special defence while choice band scizor hits harder but is limited to one move

I put 56 IVs in sp. Def and band it. 252 HP won't hurt either

Scizor has the luxury of having the stats to go bulky or offensive. Life Orb is also an option, as this still hits harder than Mega Scizor. If you give him a fully defensive EV spread he can juggle between Swords Dance and Roost long enough to get multiple boosts off. In the rain he can actually survive a fire attack or two, as well as weaker fire attacks outside of the rain.

CB Scizor is a revenge killer, you will not be able to really play it any other way.

I see. So for my Bulky Swords Dance Scizor, what's best would be a Life Orb or a Scizorite right? Do you guys suggest the Life Orb since it gives off bigger damage? But the loss in HP bothers me though since he's going to sweep and that might take its toll on him.
