Scizor is a pokemon from the 2nd generation of games as the evolution of Scyther. Despite changing colors, his look is more tame and elegant. Though he certainly packs more of a punch. I never used him much in the games, but I loved Scizor as a pokeball item in the Smash Bros. games. No weak opponent will last against Scizor.
His Japanese name is ハッサム (Hassamu) which is based on 剪む(Hasamu) which is a pun on it's cutting technique since it means "snip".
