    Default Metagross

    376 Metagross

    Iron Leg Pokémon

    Pokedex entry: Metang combined to form it. With four brains, it has the intelligence of a supercomputer.

    Ability: Clear Body

    Type: Psychic/Steel

    Stats:

    HP: 80
    Attack: 135
    Defence: 130
    Special Attack: 95
    Special Defence: 90
    Speed: 70

    Total: 600


    Move sets:

    Suicide Lead
    Item: Occa/Shuca Berry
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 252 HP 252 attack

    Earthquake
    Stealth rock
    Bullet Punch
    Explosion

    Metagross is the new Azelf: It functions as a suicide lead. Rather than use speed to get SR up, this guy uses bulk. With the great amounts of resistances from the steel typing, and with the great defences, it’s easy to get a couple of hits off. I generally find that exploding on something which is quite strong and difficult to stop is what does a good job. Getting rid of pokes like Gyra and Mence will be a strong reward for losing Metagross.


    Agiligross
    Item: Life Orb
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 252 speed 252 attack

    Agility
    EQ
    Meteor Mash
    Ice Punch

    Everything in the OU metagame is outsped bar Ninjask and scarfers. That can make for a very strong late game sweeper if played correctly, after that it’s just a matter of trying to KO the opposition. Simply attempt to bring Metagross in on something which doesn’t like it, agility on the switch, and KO the poke which comes in if possible. EQ and Meteor Mash are there for general use and coverage, while ice punch is used to get any dragons/flying types.


    Special Based attacker
    Item: Life Orb
    Nature: Mild
    EVs: 252 Speed 252 Special Attack

    Meteor Mash
    HP Fire
    Shadow Ball
    Grass Knot

    This set isn’t strictly for the best, most powerful moves you can get, it’s to try and surprise the foe and get a kill that way. It is like ChainChomp or Tyraniboah. Using this set, you should be able to KO most threats which would normally switch in, which should allow another one of your pokes to sweep after this one if required.


    Dual Screen
    Item: Leftovers
    Nature: Careful
    EVs: 252 HP 252 Attack

    Reflect
    Light screen
    EQ
    Meteor Mash

    Metagross boasts being able to use Reflect and Light Screen, and bringing it together on this set gives your team a massive boost. It could also be used as a lead as well, although in this case, I recommend you replace either EQ or Meteor mash with Explosion.


    This is my first attempt at a guide, I hope you like it
