    ~Starmie @ expert belt
    ~252spA/252spe/4 hp
    ~timid / natural cure
    ~hydro pump, thunder bolt, ice beam, hidden power-grass

    Scizor's main problems are bulky waters, skarmory, heatran, fire & gliscor. This thing aims at countering all of these. It also resists fire type attacks scizor's biggest enemy. It hits every water type except ludicolo super effectively. It has problems with the pink blobs and scizor is there just for this. It has good synergy with scizor. Although we could use a choice item or LO but the flexibility and the extra life are too much for me to give up.

    I believe Indian is on the right track, but Starmie is pretty frail and pretty weak without at a Life Orb. Do my proposition is, can I say Keldeo? It's out in three days so I might a well include it. Is it alright CrackinSkulls? I day we go for a standard Keldeo set of

    Keldeo @ Life Orb
    4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spd
    Nature: Timid

    - Calm Mind
    - Hydro Pump / Surf
    - Secret Sword
    - Hidden power Ghost / Ice

    Keldeo does what Starmie does, but becomes a boosting sweeper with a much higher spec attack and better typing. I would also like to say if we include Keldeo, that our team would benefit immensely from rain with the power boost and Scizor's weakness halved.

    So if we can't use Keldeo, I reccomend a more bulky approach

    Celebi @ Leftovers
    80 HP / 252 SpA / 176 Spd
    Nature: Timid

    - Nasty Plot
    - Giga Drain
    - Hidden Power Fire
    - Earth Power

    Celebi is a great partner for Scizor with decent synergy and the fact that it muscles it's way through most of scizor's counters. Celebis speed is great and let's it outspeed many fire types in OU and eliminate them with Earth Power. It's coverage is pretty great, and it's inability to touch dragons is finished by Scizor. If we do pick this guys, next pokes gotta be something for fire types

    I told this starmie set coz w/o hp-grass we have two pokes who are weak to gastrodon. It also has a surprise factor. You can also bluff a choice specs set.

    Scizor isn't exactly weak to Gastrodon. Sets up SD in it's face an OHKOes in Return with LO Bug Bite

    @thunderblunder keldeo is fine i have been using it in the dream world and it is an absolute boss. thanks for your suggestion.

    @ indian the opponent can see our teams and all there sets so i don't know what surprise factor you are looking for and with starmie the opponent can just choose a ferro who walls both starmie and scizor but i will include it in the coting anyway

    I just realized that Keldeo can OHKO Terrakion and mess with Ferrothorn too.
