==In the manga==
===In the Pokémon Adventures manga===
A Quick Claw was held by the {{p|Metagross}} {{adv|Emerald}} borrowed from {{adv|Crystal}} for his battle against {{FB|Dome Ace|Tucker}} in ''[[PS323|A Cheeky Charizard Change-Up I]]'', allowing it to outspeed Tucker's {{p|Charizard}} and hit it with a super-effective {{m|Rock Tomb}}. This wasn't enough to knock out the Flame Pokémon, however, and Charizard was able to defeat Metagross with {{m|Overheat}}.
