So I need some quick help
Im transferring over my battle team from Black/White to my pokemon Y game, but you cant transfer over items. Most of the items my team are holding are items i can get from battle points(items like choice specs, leftovers, focus band, and rocky helmet). However, one of the other items i use, flying gem, doesnt seem to be readily available in XY, so I was wondering if I could get some help picking out a new item for my pokemon?
The one needing a new item is this one:

Scizor(used to have flying gem)
--x-scissor
--acrobatics
--bullet punch
--swords dance

Im also rethinking acrobatics for scizor, mainly because I wont get that flying gem bonus, and a held item would just damper that, so any suggestions there would be great as well. So any suggestions for what item i should use for him?

An iron plate would be pretty baller, or a life orb.

acrobatics is good for coverage, but if youre definitely taking it out you could run U-turn instead. nothing like a pivot with a STAB priority move.
(his ability is technician, right?)

Iron plate might work, since bullet punch is weaker. I could also use life orb too. I was thinking about using his Scizorite though, would that be a good move too?

His ability is indeed technician. Since he already knows X-scissor, I dont want to run 2 bug moves, so I was thinking something like aerial ace. That sound okay?

i dont like running mine with scizorite, mega scizor doesnt hit as hard as tech-iron plate -bullet punch.

i would run u-turn over xscizzor too, because bullet punch will get the buff from tech

if you swap that out you still have room for Arial ace

Really? but doesnt his attack stat receive a huge boost? He also keeps his Technician ability, so it still receives the boost from that. I'll definitely look into iron plate though, if its as you say, i'll swap the mega stone for iron plate

i would run u-turn over xscizzor too, because bullet punch will get the buff from tech

running U-turn over x scissor has nothing to do with bullet punch getting a buff from technician. plus x-scissor has a higher attack, so im not sure what youre trying to say here. im still open to the idea though if you can clearly explain why it might be a better choice

if you swap that out you still have room for Arial ace

Ive already swapped acrobatics for aerial ace, so that isnt a problem anymore

appreciating the feedback :)

Agreed unless they happen to be using another Mega Pokemon.

Meloetta is my favorite cute Pokemon.

Rayquaza is my favorite badass Pokemon.

Am I the only one who likes this better than the main series Rayquaza music?

How many shiny Pokemon do you have? I have at least 56 of them.

Not counting the gimme in Generation II games, just one.

(i posted this in the X/Y thread too, but was unsure which one would be checked more often, so im posting this here too just in case)
So as some of you may know, theres a new pokemon competition out there that limits you to only using pokemon from the eeveelutions. This was something I always wanted to do, and now I have a good reason for it. Unfortunately, I dont usually partake of competitive pokemon battling, so im gonna need some help here on movesets and ev training.

Of the 8 possibilities, here are the six ive chosen:
Umbreon
Espeon
Jolteon
Sylveon
Flareon
Leafeon(though im considering switching this one out for vaporeon maybe)

Ive already thought out movesets some, and ive pretty much already got Umbreon set. Heres what im doing for it:
Wish
Foul Play
Toxic
Protect
Calm nature, ev spread as such: 252 in hp, 4 in defense, and 252 in special defense, holding a leftovers

For the others, ive done a bit of thinking, but unsure for the most part, and this is where I need help.
If I use Leafeon, im going to have it know Sunny day, to take advantage of its ability(has either leaf guard or clorophyll, was thinking i'd go with clorophyll), and the fact that sunny day can help out Flareon, but other than that, i dont know. If i dont have it know sunny day, then i'd rather switch it for vaporeon just so that it wont have a useless ability

I was thinking about having Flareon know flame boost, and giving it a flame orb(cancels out the burn damage, and boosts fire moves power), but guts looks pretty good too(buffs attack, but still takes damage), so i was a bit unsure there.

The reason i dont want to use Glaceon, and maybe not Leafeon is because of their abilities. Both only activate during certain weather(hail for glaceon and sunny for leafeon), and hail would just hurt the rest of my team. Sunny would help with flareon as well as leafeon, but like i said before, if im not going to use sunny day, then im nixing leafeon for vaporeon.

As for ev training for any of them(save for umbreon), im next to clueless, so i figured i'd just bolster the 2 stats that each one is good in, but thats probably not the way to go, so feel free to tell me what to do

Besides those, i have no clue about anyone else, so any advice for anything would be fully appreciated
