Metang (Japanese: メタング Metang) is a Steel/Psychic-type Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Metang is robotic lifeform that has a disc-shaped body with a pair of appendages the resemble Beldum. It has two red eyes and a pointy nose. Even though Metang and its evolved forms are mechanical creatures, they still have emotions, the need to eat and a way of reproducing. Beldum has been said to be related to Magneton due to the fact that both of them are partially Steel-type that create electromagnetic waves to float in the air.

Gender differences

This Pokémon is genderless.

Special abilities

Metang's body is magnetized, and it uses magnetism to move, communicate, and control its attacks. It is said to be related to Magneton, but Metang's magnetism focuses on psychic moves instead of electric moves.
