Mega evolutions such as Mega Charizard Y, Mega Houndoom, and Mega Charizard X are strongly recommended because of their inherent raw power along with the bonus of the extra damage because of them being Fire type. Other Pokémon like Reshiram and Chandelure are other great options too. It is possible to use Mega Scizor using two Mega Pokémon in sunny conditions but players can also defeat it with relative ease by teaming up with 3 to 5 trainers with high-level Fire-type Pokémon regardless of the weather.
