Scizor #212

Scizor is a bipedal insectoid with a red and metallic exoskeleton. It has gray forewings that retract and hind wings with simple, curved venation. It has a rounded head with three blunt horns extending above its forehead and dark yellow pupils in its eyes. Scizor has a thin, black neck that connects to a teardrop-shaped black patch on its thorax. Scizor has broad shoulders and thin, segmented arms that end in large, round pincers that account for one-third of his body weight. Scizor has a large, rounded abdomen with three black, chevron-shaped stripes running from its waist down its front; female Scizor’s abdomens are larger than male Scizor’s. Scizor’s legs are distinguished by large hip joints, thin thighs, and wide calves, with clawed toes on each side.

Mega Scizor’s pincers grow longer and more serrated. The underside of the claws turn white and develop three-pointed spikes. Mega Scizor’s claw barbs can pierce concrete, and opponents caught in them are unable to escape. [1] Its eyespots have changed to a blue with a thin black rim. Their eyes are blue as well, despite the lack of a black rim. Additional black armor appears on various parts of its body, including a three-pointed crest on its brow and striated coverings on its shoulders and thighs. The legs of Mega Scizor are less detailed, resembling large, tapered spikes with white tips.

Scizor’s body is made of steel, and his claws are powerful enough to crush any hard item. They have black eyespots with yellow “pupils” and may be opened and closed like jaws. It is claimed that its muscles are formed of metal. It will elevate its claws and swing them about to frighten off predators or opponents, creating the impression that it has three heads. When Scizor detects an adversary, it will use its claw to beat up the opponent until there is nothing but scrap left. Scizor is unable to fly and must instead control its body temperature by rapidly flapping its wings. It does this to save its body from overheating and dissolving. Despite its little stature, it has immense power. Scizor is uncommon in the wild, however it may be found in grasslands.

Mega Scizor is a tough opponent, but it cannot keep this shape for long; after a while, its body begins to melt and it loses the strength to wield its hefty pincers. Because of the surplus energy from its Mega Evolution, it is unable to control its body temperature adequately. Mega Scizor rips everything it grabs to pieces with its pincers. It would rather beat up its opponents than grab them.
