As you heard it. Now, all pokes have to be from emerald, because I cant find two gameboys and a trade cable (got a ds gc with a gc-gb cable) So far,

Metagross@Liechi ???
??? Nature

You'll probably say that this guy is a complete piece of crap. Well, it's not. It takes goot care of ground and dragon types, which is kool.

Modest Nature

This might be cheap, but you must admit, it is pretty usefull. At least normal effective against everything and kills.

??? Nature

You might call me cheap but dt works wonders.

I need a full attacker for special, I want a heracross but I don't have salac, I have in my colo but . . . Ya know. Suggestions PLEASE.

Why have Shockwave on Gardy when it has Thunderbolt which has basically the same accuracy and more power? Also get rid of DT. It relies on luck, which can screw you over at the most annoying times. Use Psychic. I like Synchronise on Gardy as an ability.

Metagross doesn't need Ice Punch, since Gardevoir has it. Metagross should be Physical, not mixed. Explosion over it.

If you want more, I like Ninjask for Baton Passing (Silverwind, Baton Pass, Sub, Swords Dance).

Okay, I've had a lot of experience training Metagross being a Metagross breeder in emerald, and these are the suggestions I can give:

Thunderpunch is good for annoying skarmorys that Metagross can't get a good hit on, and fire and flying types like charizard

Rock Slide is for all fire types, part flying or not. I use it if I've already used up earthquake. It also gives that chance of flinching that Metagross might take advantage of.

Shadow Ball, if you need a good Shedinja counter

Overall, I'd recommend this:

Thunder Punch
Shadow Ball
Meteor Mash


Ice Punch
Meteor Mash

less shuckle and less double team

Hmmm, I think of grond types as pests and such so thats why I put ice punch but maybe I can remove. And gardy, I might drop gardy if any other special attackers comes to notice.

I think I can raise a linonee to lv 100 using the slide trick so earthquake tm wont be a problem. Lets see what I have in mind.

Physical Sweeper: Metagross
Special Sweeper: Gardevoir/???
Optional Poke: Heracross
Tank: Shuckle
Annoyer:Skarmory maybe?
BatonPasser: I would really like scyter with this set @petaya swordsdance/endure/batonpass/aerialace but it would require a lot of trading. So. (I personally dont like ninjask so I will get a gorebyss.

This set OK maybe?

annoyer doesn't exist, and shuckle is hardly a tank when it is beaten by;

sub/poisons/steels/natural cure/heal bell/seismic toss/taunt etc.
