Pokemon GO’s annual Bug Out event is here and with it comes a bunch of new and returning creepy crawly Pokemon, including the debut of Mega Scizor in raids.

The Pincer Pokemon is debuting alongside the likes of Grubbin, Charjabug, Vikavolt and Unown T, with Pansear and Pansear also making their worldwide debuts, previously only being available regionally.

The event is set to run for a week, starting on Wednesday, August 10 and finishing on Tuesday, August 16, giving players a short window to earn enough Mega Scizor Energy.

To help you get ahead of the curve, here is how to beat Mega Scizor in Pokemon GO, including all of its weaknesses and the best counters to exploit them.

All Mega Scizor Weaknesses in Raids

Mega Scizor is a Bug and Steel-type Pokemon.

This unusual typing means it has only a single weakness for you to exploit. That is Fire.

Thankfully, Fire-type moves are 4x as effective so there’s no other choice in Mega Scizor raids.

Alongside its weakness, Mega Scizor has a whopping nine different resistances in raids. They are as follows:

2x Resistance:

BugDragonFairyIceNormalPsychicSteel

4x Resistance:

GrassPoison

Be sure not to bring any of these Pokemon types into battle.

Congrats, Trainers! All your buzz about Bug-type Pokémon has caused the Bug Out! event to metamorphose into Ultra Unlock: Bug Out!Check the blog to see what rewards and bonuses you’ve earned!https://t.co/eUl2HvBTbf pic.twitter.com/qIyQ3Pym9m— Pokémon GO (@PokemonGoApp) August 7, 2022

BEST COUNTERS FOR MEGA SCIZOR RAIDS

The following are the best Pokemon and their moves that you could bring to Mega Scizor raids to help you defeat it quickly:

Mega Charizard Y – Fire Spin/Blast BurnMega Charizard X – Fire Spin/Blast BurnMega Houndoom – Fire Fang/FlamethrowerReshiram – Fire Fang/OverheatCharizard – Fire Spin/Blast BurnMoltres – Fire Spin/OverheatEntei – Fire Fang/OverheatBlaziken – Fire Spin/Blast BurnEmboar – Ember/Blast BurnHo-Oh – Incinerate/Sacred FireChandelure – Fire Spin/OverheatDarmanitan – Fire Fang/OverheatInfernape – Fire Spin/Blast BurnMagmortar – Fire Spin/Fire BlastFlareon – Fire Spin/OverheatTyphlosion – Incinerate/Blast Burn

Remember, bringing a Mega Evolution into a raid will boost all other moves of the same type as that Pokemon, therefore, it’s relatively imperative that you, or somebody in your party brings a Fire-type Mega Pokemon.

With all of this in mind, you should be able to beat Mega Scizor raids with three high level trainers, or comfortably with four.
