Metagross (Japanese: メタグロス Metagross) is a dual-type Steel/Psychic pseudo-legendary Pokémon.

It evolves from Metang starting at level 45. It is the final form of Beldum. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Metagross using an unknown Mega Stone. As Mega Metagross, its Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed stats increase.

Biology

Metagross is a robotic Pokémon with a turquoise, disc-shaped body and four legs. The main body appears to serve as both head and body, and this Pokémon’s overall construction gives it the appearance of a mechanized arachnid. It uses its heavy body to pin down its prey before consuming them with its large mouth. A large, metallic cross is situated in the center of its face. On either side of the cross, a red eye peers out from a space in Metagross's metallic armor. Its four legs are joined to the main body by ball-and-socket joints. While the upper portion of the legs is relatively thin, they are considerably thicker below the knee. Each leg has three short claws on the end and a flat, blunt protrusion extending over the knee. The legs can be tucked in, allowing Metagross to float in the air.

Metagross is the result of two Metang fusing together. This gives Metagross four brains in total, all connected by a complex network of neurons. Because of these complex connections and the number of brains, this Pokémon is capable of complex calculations and is more intelligent than a supercomputer. It uses its intelligence to analyze its opponents during battle. This Pokémon can be found on rough terrains.

Major appearances

Metagross was first seen in Destiny Deoxys under the ownership of Rebecca.

Metagross's anime debut was in Like a Meowth to a Flame as one of Tyson's Pokémon.

Anabel's Metagross was seen in Talking a Good Game and Second Time's the Charm.

A Metagross also appeared in Glory Blaze! belonging to a Psychic.

A wild Shiny Metagross appeared in Noodles: Roamin' Off where it attacked Team Rocket.

A wild Metagross appeared in Regaining the Home Advantage!, where it battled non-stop with a Magnezone. These two Pokémon normally battled with each other on a regular basis until their "battle arena" (a deep crater) became filled with water. Because their crater was no longer usable, they took their battle to the streets of a nearby town, and continued fighting, causing much collateral damage.

Minor appearances

Shiny Metagross in the anime

Another Metagross appeared in Zoroark: Master of Illusions under the ownership of a Pokémon Baccer.

Pokédex entries

In the manga

Art of Steven and his Metagross

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Steven in Pokémon Adventures owns a Metagross. It's his flight Pokémon, carrying him from place to place with its levitation abilities. He also owns a Metang and many Beldum, which, along with his Metagross, help dig out and find rare stones in caves.

Emerald borrowed a Metagross caught by Crystal for use in the Battle Dome final against Tucker, which Emerald ultimately lost. Tucker himself also mentioned having a Metagross which has yet to be seen.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

Koya has a Metagross which first appeared in A New Battle Begins!.

In the TCG

Main article: Metagross (TCG)

In the TFG

One Metagross figure has been released.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Metagross in Super Smash Bros Brawl

Upon its release from its Poké Ball, it will stay in one place and repeatedly use Earthquake. Anyone caught underneath the Pokémon will be buried into the ground and thus unable to move for a few moments, until Metagross uses its attack and all the hit characters are blasted upwards.

Metagross was featured as one of the Pokémon released from a Poké Ball in the demo of Super Smash Bros. Brawl at Jumpfesta; however, it hovered above the stage before attacking, unlike in the actual game.

Trophy Information

"An Iron Leg Pokémon. When two Beldum combine, they evolve into Metang. In the same way, Metagross is the result of two Metang combining. It's said to have the intelligence to match a supercomputer. Though it weighs 1,212.5 pounds, it is somehow able to fold up its legs and float."

  • Metagross is the only dual-typed pseudo-legendary without a 4x weakness to any type.

Origin

Metagross is similar to a robot. It also appears to be based on a super computer, given its mechanical structure and sheer intelligence, and a spider. It is also reminiscent of a UFO.

Name origin

Metagross may be a combination of metal and cross (referring to its facial feature), gross (referring to its weight [1212 pounds], as a gross is 12×12), or groß gross (German for large).
