In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

A Quick Claw was held by the Metagross Emerald borrowed from Crystal for his battle against Tucker in A Cheeky Charizard Change-Up I, allowing it to outspeed Tucker's Charizard and hit it with a super-effective Rock Tomb. This wasn't enough to knock out the Flame Pokémon, however, and Charizard was able to defeat Metagross with Overheat.
