Pokémon GO Metagross is one of the best Pokémon to ever be introduced in Pokémon GO. Great stats (3644 MAX CP, elite ATK and DEF), amazing typing and a wide assortment of moves, make Metagross one of the Top Tier Pokémon in term of Gym defense and offense.
The only thing we’d like is more stamina, but given everything else, Metagross is a beast nevertheless!
Metagross evolves from Beldum in Pokémon GO, keeping it’s steel psychic typing throughout the family evolutions. No evolution item requirements.
Similar to the anime, Morrison was also seen with a Beldum which debuted in A Clash Of Wills!! Eternal Rivals?!.
Metagross in the Pokémon GO meta
Metagross in Pokémon GO has elite stats, continuing the tradition and fame it garnered in other Pokémon games. With it’s amazing typing, Metagross can only be countered with the following:
- 125% damage from ground
- 125% damage from ghost
- 125% damage from fire
- 125% damage from dark
His biggest counters are Pokémon with access to both Dark and Fire moves, like Tyranitar with Bite dark and Fire Blast fire, that will simply chew through Metagross defenses. The rest of high tier Pokémon will have a lot of problems countering him.
