Snake. Snake! SSSNNNNAAAAAAAAAAKKKKEEEEE!!!
SNAKE IS DEAD!
Gasp! Genesect killed Solid Snake! NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Anyway, Metal Gear Solid from Konami aside, when I saw this guy, I felt like Kojima gave Tajiri and Masuda the permission to promote the biggest Metal Gear Solid References ever! Hurrah! They officially broke pokemon bug type standards with Metal Gear Ray. Since GF cannot represent Metal Gear Ray like he should originally be, they had to sugarcoat the Metal Gear Ray and weaken its badass canyon to a 70 power move instead of a 250 powered nuclear laser cannon that can kill Arceus, and make his typing akin to Scizor for badass typing points.
Bug Pokemon. Once the weakest, dominated Unova in 15 month, War has changed.
For my Given set to Pokemon Metal Gear Genesect:
EVs: 252 Speed & Sp. Atk., 4 on HP
Item: Lum berry
Special attacking is personally the kind of thing that closesly relates to how Metal Gear Ray fights in the Metal Gear Solid Series. Quite badass too if you ask my opinion. But this one's more of a wall breaking variant
If I were to give a proposal for Genesesct's nicknaming system, let's use Every Metal Gear Solid References that we could use. Seriously, Genesect is a Metal Gear in disguise. Ready to destroy the pokemon world. Only Snake, along with Fire type pokemon that he forced to catch, can stop it for good.
