===Physiology===
+
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.
Metagross has the appearance of a tremendous, quadrupedal tank-like Pokémon. Its turquoise-colored, discus-shaped main body appears to be its head, as it lies at the center point where its legs branch out to give the impression of a mechanized arachnid. Each leg could be viewed as the body of a former {{p|Beldum}}, and its head/body as the four collective heads of Beldum used to fuse into it. Metagross has a metallic cross adorning its face formed by its tusks crossing diagonally between its two red eyes, often viewed as the letter "X" by onlookers, and this cross-shape is arranged to resemble both metallic "eyebrows" and a metallic "mustache." This is said to represent Metagross's wise, computative nature.
 
   
In the same way that its pre-evolved form {{p|Metang}} is comprised by two {{p|Beldum}}, a still more basic evolution stage, so is Metagross formed by the joining of two Metang. This essentially means that four Beldum make up a Metagross (this could be compared to {{p|Magneton}} or {{p|Magnezone}}, both of which are comprised of 3 {{p|Magnemite}}). However, four Beldum come nowhere near to the size of a Metagross.
+
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. 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.
   
====Gender differences====
+
Metagross is the result of two {{p|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. This Pokémon can be found on {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Rough-terrain Pokémon|rough terrains}}. Mega Metagross achieves its form by linking up a Metagross, a Metang, and two {{p|Beldum}} together. During [[Mega Evolution]], Metagross becomes a ruthless Pokémon that will use any means to win in battle, being downright cruel at some points. If it knows it cannot win, Mega Metagross digs its claws into opponent and prepares to explode.
Metagross is a genderless species.
 
   
===Special abilities===
+
==In the anime==
Metagross's intelligence is extraordinarily high: not only does it have four brains (one from each Beldum) but they are also connected by a highly complex neural network. Its developed cerebral powers are said to surpass even those of a supercomputer, similar to {{p|Alakazam}}. As a {{type|Psychic}} Pokémon, it can also use psychic abilities, including the ability to render its massive body airborne by telekinesis once it draws its legs together. Metagross's movepool isn't that much different than its predecessor, Metang. The only two moves that Metagross can learn that Metang lacks are {{m|Hammer Arm}} and {{m|Giga Impact}}.

+
=====Other=====
Possessing four brains, Metagross is an extremely wise Pokémon with unmatched intelligence.

'''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!''

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. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Metagross using the Metagrossite.

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. 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.

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. This Pokémon can be found on rough terrains. Mega Metagross achieves its form by linking up a Metagross, a Metang, and two Beldum together. During Mega Evolution, Metagross becomes a ruthless Pokémon that will use any means to win in battle, being downright cruel at some points. If it knows it cannot win, Mega Metagross digs its claws into opponent and prepares to explode.

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."

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.

Trivia

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. It is also reminiscent of a UFO and a lander.

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 gross (German for large).
