History

In the Mega Evolution Specials

Steven's Metagross in the anime
As a Mega Metagross

Metagross first appeared in Mega Evolution Special II as a Shiny Pokémon capable of Mega Evolution. Steven sent it out in a battle against Alain's Charizard. It first used Psychic to redirect Charizard's Flamethrower with little effort before Mega Evolving itself. It was shown being extremely strong in both offense and defense, dealing heavy blows on Charizard with Flash Cannon and Meteor Mash after taking its Dragon Claw. It was then hit by Charizard's powerful Blast Burn, but Metagross was even able to withstand this super effective attack. Before the battle could be finished, however, it was interrupted by Lysandre and his Pyroar using Flamethrower. Steven later sent out Metagross and Mega Evolved it while facing Mega Rayquaza. When Alain's Charizard was struck by Rayquaza's Dragon Ascent, Metagross tried to grab it, but was knocked away by Rayquaza. It was then forced to take evasive action to avoid Rayquaza's Draco Meteor.

Metagross reappeared in Mega Evolution Special III, where it used to battle Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon to prevent the from reaching the Megalith. While Charizard faced Groudon, Metagross managed to hit Kyogre with its Flash Cannon. Afer dodging the Legendary Pokémon's Origin Pulse, Metagross struck Kyogre with a powerful Meteor Mash. Kyogre, however, quickly recovered and knocked Metagross away with its tail, sending it sliding across the ice. It was then hit by an Ice Beam, but managed to shake of the attack. It later protected Mairin from incoming chunks of ice while she was getting Alain to safety after he was knocked unconscious. The two Legendary Pokémon were eventually stopped and defeated by Mega Rayquaza.

In the main series

Metagross made its main series debut in a flashback in Rivals: Today and Tomorrow! and appeared in another flashback in Coming Apart at the Dreams!, alongside its Trainer.

Steven and Metagross

In The Right Hero for the Right Job!, Steven and Metagross arrived at Lysandre Labs, where the two engaged in a battle against Mable and several Team Flare Grunts, allowing Serena, Team Rocket, Mairin, and Professor Sycamore to infiltrate the base. It later appeared to subdue numerous other Team Flare Grunts with Psychic. In the following episode, Metagross was sent out to fight against the Megalith Zygarde to prevent it from reaching Anistar City's Sundial alongside Serena's Braixen and Professor Sycamore's Garchomp. The three Pokémon were quickly subdued by the creatures massive roots, but were freed by Ash's Pikachu and Greninja, and Alain's Charizard. Despite their help, Metagross and the others were eventually subdued again, but were freed once again by a combined attack from from the Pokémon of all the Kalos Gym Leaders and Diantha. After strategizing, everyone combined their powers to fend off the Megalith Zygarde's roots, allowing Ash and Alain to reach its center and save Chespie, bringing the creature down. After the resurrection of the Megalith Zygarde, who was now controlled by Lysandre, Metagross continued to fight the creature until Lysandre's control device was destroyed which allowed Squishy and Z2 to destroy the Megalith Zygarde.

It appeared again in Till We Compete Again!, during a flashback.

Personality and characteristics

Metagross's Metagrossite

During its battle with Alain's Charizard, Metagross was shown to not only withstand powerful attacks, including ones that are super-effective, such as Blast Burn, but deal large amounts of damage as well with powerful Steel-type attacks, such as Flash Cannon and Meteor Mash. As shown in Mega Evolution Special III it can be friendly, such as protecting Mairin with Protect voluntarily and fistbumping Chespie after the battle.

History

Ruby & Sapphire chapter

Metagross is Steven's first known Pokémon. It debuted in Blowing Past Nosepass II alongside its Trainer. In Ring Ring Goes Beldum, Metagross was first used in battle inside of the Granite Cave, where Steven used it to battle a group of wild Mawile that were attacking Ruby. Metagross defeated the Mawile by surprising them with an attack from underground.

In The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon XII, Metagross was used to save Wallace from a rampaging Tabitha under the influence of the Blue Orbs power. Steven and Metagross stalled Tabitha so that Wallace can head off to Sootopolis City. Once Tabitha had been defeated, Steven and Metagross went to Sootopolis, where Groudon and Kyogre were having their climactic battle. With the help of Sapphire and a blind boy, Steven unlocked the seals containing Regirock, Regice, and Registeel. Steven would use these three Pokémon to help contain the power that Groudon and Kyogre released during their fight while Ruby and Sapphire trained on Mirage Island to prepare for their final battle.

After Groudon and Kyogre are defeated and return to their slumber, Steven dies from the strain of controlling three Legendary Pokémon at once. Wallace borrowed Metagross to transport himself to Sootopolis so that he can help combat Archie and Maxie for the final battle. Metagross was returned to its Trainer after Steven was revived with Ruby's Celebi's powers.

Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter

In Omega Alpha Adventure 6, it is revealed that with Steven's Mega Stickpin and its Metagrossite, Metagross can Mega Evolve into Mega Metagross. It first Mega Evolved to battle a mysterious Pokémon that attacked Emerald on the Sea Mauville. It Mega Evolved again to battle Zinnia and her army of former Team Magma and Aqua Grunts. As the battle goes on, Metagross quickly exhausts itself and loses the energy to battle. Steven reveals that Metagross also donated its life energy to the dimensional shifter, but the energy drain left it much weaker than normal and it cannot stay Mega Evolved for a long period of time. Steven states he attempted to try various means to bring Metagross back to full strength, but none of them worked.

In PAORAS21, Metagross helped to assist in stopping the meteoroid.

Platinum chapter

In Leaping Past Lopunny, Metagross was seen with Steven as he sold the Villa he was staying in while searching for rare stones in the Sinnoh region. Once he finished, the two flew back to Hoenn.

Personality and characteristics

Metagross's magnetism allows it to float in the air, and as such, Steven has been mainly relied on it as a method of flight transportation. It has also shown to be an extremely strong battler, defeating a group of wild Pokémon at once without any sort of trouble.

During the Groudon and Kyogre arc, Metagross allowed Wallace to ride on it after Steven was killed by the strain of controlling the Legendary golems.
