    BANNERS/ART
        Spoiler:- Banners and Art:


    Steel-Type Pokémon of the Week

    Pokémon: Metagross
    Tier: OU
    Ability: Clear Body
    Item: Air Balloon
    Nature: Adamant
    EV Spread: 252 Atk, 252 HP, 4 SpD
    Moves: Earthquake, Bullet Punch, Zen Headbutt, Meteor Mash/Ice Punch
    Summary: Oh Metagross, a Pokémon that has a good Attack stat, which is actually better than Scizor's, but he is still less used than the Bug due to it's Technician Ability. Metagross actually surpasses Scizor in all areas Stat wise. However, the metal menace sports two very common weaknesses, Ground and Fire. While an Air Balloon negates Ground's effect, Fire still remains strong and is able to OHKO Metagross even while it's holding an Occa Berry. However, Metagross has it's uses. Earthquake gives it the ability to hit Fire, Electric, Poison, Steel, and Rock, one of which is it's main weakness. Bullet Punch provides the ability to hit things much faster than it such as Volcarona. Despite this move being used to cause at least a small portion of damage, speedy Pokémon tend to be defensively weak, allowing a decent amount of damage to be done. Zen Headbutt provides STAB with a chance to flinch on top of an already great Attack. The last spot can be used for either Meteor Mash which hits hard and provides STAB or Ice Punch, which is a great counter for Dragons. Metagross would be a widely used Dragon counter due to resisting it and learning Ice Punch, but due to Dragons wide movepool and the ability to learn Fire moves, he is often rendered useless against them. As can be seen, Metagross is a powerful Pokémon, who's main downfall is the condition of the current metagame, which includes the more powerful Scizor, and the number of Pokémon able to learn Fire and Ground type moves.
    NOTES
    If you contribute to the club, then you may be promoted to Co-Owner.

    Yeah I know.
    So let's get a topic going!
    What is the best steel-type legendary?
    I personally think that Heatran is great. I love its design and also its secondary type of fire.
    I'm not really sure if it's good in competitive play but I have used it on PS and done pretty well with it before.
    As for the other steel legendaries I feel that Jirachi is cute but I tend to not like "cute" pokemon.
    Registeel, Genesect, Cobalion, and Dialga also don't disappoint and are listed from most favorite to least favorite, although I like them all

    Well, thanks for responding Cyrius. XD

    It's really hard for me to choose my favorite steel type legendary, because I like them all, and actually feel that they might have the best legendary line up.

    I think it would go like this, ranking wise: 1. Cobalion 2. Dialga 3. Registeel 4. Genesect 5. Heatran 6. Jirachi

    But I really like all of them alot.

    Thank you! and as for the topic:

    My favorite is Dialga (as stated in Application) because it has a unique typing, and its shiny form looks really awesome! It also has only 2 weaknesses, and fighting isnt really common in Ubers. and my style of battle is to Defensive Stall, so he suits my needs well.

    Yea those first two reasons are the ones I like.
    Also kind of off topic but when do you guys want to have a tourney?
    When we have 8 members or 16 members?

    Hurray for new members!

    Now for a topic: What is the best typing to go alongside steel?

    It might be flying for me, because, for one, it take away the fighting weakness, makes Ground an immunity rather than a weakness, and for flying, it takes rock away as a weakness.

    I tried but I still can't get the link to work :/

    anyway my favorite Steel legendary is Heatran. Not sure if it's good in competitive play, but it has an amazing design. Plus its not weak to fire.
