Metagross (Japanese: メタグロス Metagurosu) is a Steel/Psychic-type Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

Biology

Physiology

Metagross resembles a robotic spider. It has a light blue disc-shaped body with two red eyes and a large X in the center of its face. Each of its four legs is outfitted with three short claws. When it Mega Evolves, Metagross undergoes some drastic changes in its appearance. It now levitates in the air, despite not having Levitate for its ability, and Its four legs are now converted into arms. A spike is attached to its lower jaw. Its arm claws are longer and the X on its face is gold-colored. Four smaller legs are moved backward as well.

Behavior

Metagross is made up of two Metang that fused together. It has four brains which are all linked together as one by a complex neural network with the intelligence to solve highly complex equations faster than a super-computer. Metagross uses its large and heavy bulk to pin down prey. It is one of the few Pokémon capable of Mega Evolution.

When Mega evolving, Metagross becomes even more ruthless, using various tactics to ensure a victory. If it cannot win, Mega Metagross takes its opponent with it in a humongous explosion. Its claws are stronger and tougher, capable of smashing through rock.

Natural abilities

In the game, Metagross has the ability "Clear Body", which prevents any of its stats from being lowered. When it Mega evolves, Metagross gains the ability “Tough Claws”, which boosts the power of contact moves.

Evolution

Metagross is the evolved form of Metang as of level 45 and is the final evolutionary form of Beldum. It can further evolve into Mega Metagross when using the Metagrossite.

Trivia

  • Metagross is the heaviest non-legendary Pokémon, at a weight of 1212.5 lbs. However, Mudsdale currently owns that title, at a weight of 2028.3 lbs.
  • Metagross is the only genderless Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon.
  • Metagross is the only Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon that can't learn any Dragon-type moves.
  • Metagross and Tyranitar are the only Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon that are not a Dragon-type.
  • Metagross is the only Pseudo-Legendary who doesn't share any type with the rest of the Pseudo Legendary, as none of them are Steel or Psychic.
  • In Super Smash Bros., Metagross is one of the Pokémon that can be freed from Poké Balls. During this time, it uses the move Earthquake.

Origin

Metagross is likely based on a robot with some elements of a spider and supercomputer. Its ability to fly with legs tucked on all sides might be similar to an UFO. Metagross might also be based on a moon lander.

Etymology

Metagross' name may be derived from the word metal and the French word gros, which means "big". It may also come from cross, due to its big cross on its face. It could also include gross (a large amount) and meta (beyond), thus making meta-gross (beyond a large amount).
