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

It evolves from Metang starting at level 45. It is the final form of Beldum.

Metagross can Mega Evolve into Mega Metagross using the Metagrossite.

Contents

Biology

Metagross is a massive, 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.

As Mega Metagross, it constantly floats, and its legs become arms. It also gains four legs on the back of its head. The cross on its face turns pale gold, and it gains two small holes and a spike immediately below the cross, giving the impression of a goatee.

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 performing complex calculations and is more intelligent than a supercomputer. It uses its intelligence to analyze its opponents during battle. Metagross uses its fantastic strength to pin down a victim using its four claws and body. This allows Metagross to use its large mouth and teeth to chew its victim to pieces. This Pokémon can be found on rough terrains. Metagross can also be found living in snowy mountains as their magnetic powers becomes stronger in freezing temperatures.

Mega Metagross achieves its form by linking up a Metagross, a Metang, and two Beldum together. Its multiple brains process information simultaneously, enabling it to calmly assess the tide of a battle and defeat its opponent with accuracy. Mega Metagross also uses the psychic power inside its body to launch powerful attacks. Its claws are hard as steel and can easily smash even large chunks of rocks. Because Mega Evolution stimulates its multiple brains and increases its intelligence, Mega Metagross becomes a ruthless combatant that will clutch at victory by absolutely any means, no matter how horrifyingly cruel. If victory is deemed impossible, Metagross will attempt to dig its claws into its opponent and prepare to explode.

Other appearances

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."

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Metagross in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS.

Metagross reappears as a Poké Ball summon in these games, working the same as in Brawl.

Trophy information

NA: A hulking Steel/Psychic Pokémon, Metagross weighs in at around 1,212.5 lb. Even Snorlax isn't that heavy! It uses Earthquake by stomping its powerful legs on the ground, sending nearby fighters flying and burying those who come too close. You'll be safe in the air, so use careful timing to stay that way.

PAL: A Steel- and Psychic-type Pokémon known as the Iron Leg Pokémon. At 550kg in weight, it's heavier than your average Snorlax. When its Earthquake hits, you'd better hope you're far away (or at least in mid-air), because the tremors can launch anybody on the ground. And watch out for its legs! They can stomp you right into the ground!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Metagross returns once again as a Poké Ball summon, functioning the same as in Brawl and for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U. Metagross also appears as a Spirit.

Trivia

Promotional artwork of a Shiny Mega Metagross

Origin

Metagross is similar to a robot. It also appears to be based on a supercomputer, given its mechanical structure and sheer intelligence, and a spider. Additionally, it is reminiscent of a UFO and a lander. Metagross's face may draw inspiration from the largest gear of the Antikythera mechanism, an ancient analog computer.

Name origin

Metagross may be a combination of metal and cross (referring to its facial feature), gross (referring to its weight of 1212 lbs., as a gross is 12×12), or groß.
