Metang (Japanese: メタング Metang) is a dual-type Steel/Psychic Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Beldum starting at level 20 and evolves into Metagross starting at level 45.

Biology

Metang is a robotic Pokémon with teal, metallic skin. It has a disc-shaped body with a pair of flat, gray spikes on either side toward the rear. A jet cannot scratch Metang due to its strong body. There is a gray spike in the middle of its face, similar to a nose. A pair of red eyes reside in two holes in its metallic skin. While it appears to lack legs, it has a pair of thick arms with three claws on the ends. The arms are considerably thicker below the elbow and have a flat, blunt protrusion extending over the joint. It is able to rotate its arms backwards in order to travel at speeds over 60 mph (100 km/h), and its claws are able to rip through steel.

Metang is formed when two Beldum fuse together. A magnetic nervous system joins the brains of these two Pokémon. This linkage allows Metang to generate a strong, psychokinetic power. This Pokémon’s high intelligence and strong magnetic field are other sources of powerful psychic energy. In addition to generating psychic power, its magnetism allows Metang to hover in midair. This Pokémon lives on rough terrains.

Trivia

  • Although it is said that Metang is made up of two Beldum, there is no visible evidence of this. In the only anime episode to date showing a Beldum evolution, Saved by the Beldum, when Morrison's Beldum evolves into Metang, it "creates" another Beldum and newly developed main body to evolve, instead of fusing with another Beldum. Likewise, if a Metang evolution is shown, it is highly unlikely it would involve two Metang evolving together. This is similar to the games.
  • Metang's number in the Hoenn Pokédex in Generation III and the Fiore Browser are the same: 191.
  • Though Metang appears to be floating in both the games and anime, it cannot have the ability Levitate.

Origin

Metang is made of two Beldum merged. It is visually similar to both flying saucers and crabs.

Name origin

Metang may be a combination of metal and tang (onomatopoeic sound of metal being struck). Metang is also an anagram of magnet. It may also be a combination of metal and étang (French for the color pond blue).
