View Full Version : Metagross Help

8th December 2006, 3:25 AM
I have a Metagross fresh from the evolution, and I'm wondering what a good moveset would be. This is all I have right now.

Meteor Mash

I can't do movesets that include Earthquake, Thunder/Ice Punch, Rest, Sleep Talk, or Rock Slide. I'm thinking about using Sludge Bomb and Aerial Ace.

Sludge Bomb
Shadow Ball
Meteor Mash
I'm assuming you don't want to change to an Adamant nature;), unless your is already Adamant

Well that limits you. There is also Agility, Shadow Ball and Explosion.

Hmmm. Would this be a good moveset?

Metagross@Shoal Bell
-Meteor Mash
-Sludge Bomb
-Agility/Light Screen

This is sadly the best moveset I can come up with. Man, I have GOT to stop using up all the good TMs. I'm using Shoal Bell as my trusty Banette has the Lefties.

You don't need Psychic on there

Well, what else can I use? I don't like using Explosion, I used my Shadow Ball on my old Dusclops for some reason, and I don't have access to Tutors because I have Saphire version.

Do you have FR/LG, you can get Shadow Ball TMs there, if not Brick Break can be used as an alternative

Shadow Ball is useless on Metagross.
How can you forget Rock Slide? It takes care of Zapdos and Gyarados, two Pokemon who resist EQ and MM.

he wants:

rock slide
meteor mash

He can't get Rock Slide or Earthquake, it's on his first post

I HAD Leafgreen, until my old SP was stolen with Leaf Green in tow. On an even bigger notice, my Link cable is now broken, so I can't trade with my bros Fire Red version. I have the WORST luck.

Then don't bother using Metagross. No Earthquake? That's its second most important move. And you're basically missing every other good move it can learn.
Seriously, don't use a Metagross that can't handle other Steel types.

I have my Swampert to handle other Steel Types. Maybe I should use the Moveset I posted bit earlier.

You'll still be forced to switch, giving your opponent the oppurtunity to set up or status you (i.e. Skarmory's Spikes and Toxic).
Metagross without Earthquake OR Rock Slide is a sad Metagross (and you can't even make use of a RestTalking set, which is even sadder.)

You're pretty much limited to:

Adamant nature
Trait:Clear Body
- Meteor Mash
- Sludge Bomb
- Return
- Agility

Or something. That set sucks, I know.
