Scizor, the 74th Pokemon in the Hisuian Pokedex, is a Bug and Steel-type Pincer Pokemon that has a metallic red and black body that looks like that of an insect’s, a pair of eyes with dark yellow pupils, three blunt horns at the top of its head that are connected to the front of its face.

This black, thin neck is connected to its body on a black marking on the top part of its torso that is shaped like an upside-down teardrop, two pairs of retractable wings that are colored gray and have curved venation, broad, red shoulders, a pair of segmented arms with large, red pincers on each arm with a dark yellow circle marking on each pincer, a rounded abdomen that is large with three chevron-shaped stripes at the front, a pair of red legs with big hip joints, slim thighs, wide calves, and a toe with a claw on the end of each of its foot.

According to its Pokedex entry in the game, Scizor evolved by using an interesting item. Its shell seems to be stronger than steel that is forged.

Scizor is a Bug and Steel-type Pokemon, which means that it has a four times weakness (super effective) to Fire-type moves, a resistance (not very effective) to Bug-type, Dragon-type, Fairy-type, Ice-type, Normal-type, Psychic-type, Steel-type, and especially Grass-type moves, and an immunity (no effect) to Poison-type moves.

Scizor’s base stats are 70 HP, 130 Attack, 100 Defense, 55 Special Attack, 80 Special Defense, and 65 Speed.

Scizor evolved from a Scyther by using a Metal Coat. Scyther can also be evolved to a Kleavor by using a Black Augurite.

Scizor’s favorite foods are Springy Mushrooms, Dazzling Honey, Hearty Grains, and Plump Beans. These foods and berries can be used as food for Scizor and a distraction before catching or battling it unawares.

Whenever a wild Scizor is defeated or captured, the player will receive a Seed of Mastery and an Exp. Candy L.


The player can only find a Scizor inside Space-Time Distortions in the Alabaster Icelands.

Research Tasks

The following are the Research Tasks in Scizor’s Pokedex entry in Pokemon Legends: Arceus:

Every time one of a Research Task’s objectives is accomplished, a Pokedex entry’s Research Level increases by one level. After completing a Research Task objective with a multiplier of x2, the Pokedex entry gains two Research Levels. 

Once a Pokemon’s Pokedex entry reaches Research Level 10, it is complete. In addition, the player receives Research Points for finishing Pokedex entries and Research Task objectives. The player’s Star Rank in the Galaxy Team will be increased if they accumulate enough Research Points.
