Scyther and Scizor's strongest stats are Attack, with Scyther favoring Speed and Scizor favoring Defense. Regardless of if you use either, Speed and Attack should be the two stats that you focus on. Neither uses Special Attack, so this stat is sacrificed. Pick one of the above natures if you prefer the extra Speed boost or if you want your attacks to hit harder.
