Metagross in Pokemon Go

Metagross is one of the most desired Pokemon in Pokemon Go due to its incredible stats and raw attack power. This guide will showcase the best moveset for Metagross and help you create the best build for the Go Battle League, Gym Battles, Raids, and other combat challenges.

Metagross is easily one of the most powerful attackers in Pokemon Go. It is a Steel and Psychic-type Pokemon, and due to this, it has quite a reasonable advantage over several of the preferred picks for PvP and even Raid Battles.

Having said that, the combat ability of Pokemon in Pokemon Go depends on several factors. These include CP, IVs, and, of course, their moveset. Every creature you catch in the open world can learn a wide range of moves, but only a handful of them can guarantee great results.

On that note, here’s the best moveset for Metagross in Pokemon Go.

Most powerful moveset for Metagross in Pokemon Go

Since Metagross belongs to the Steel type, the strongest moveset for it is Bullet Punch as Fast Move and Meteor Dash as Charged Move. Both these attacks deal a ton of Steel-type damage, and you’ll also get STAB (Same type attack bonus).

Metagross can naturally learn Psychic-type moves as well, but Steel is stronger against Rock, Ice, and Fairy types. Ice and Fairy are the biggest weaknesses of Dragon-type Pokemon, and if you want to make a balanced team that can support your dragons, Metagross with Steel-type attacks is an obvious choice.

All moves that Metagross can learn in Pokemon Go

Apart from Bullet Punch and Meteor Dash, Metagross can learn these moves in Pokemon Go:

Quick Moves

  • Bullet Punch – 12 DPS (Psychic)
  • Zen Headbutt – 13.1 DPS (Steel)

If you can unlock a second Charge Move for Metagross, we recommend it to be Earthquake or Psychic. This should help you tackle a bigger range of Pokemon types with the Steel-type beast.

Is Metagross good in Pokemon Go? Strengths and weaknesses explained

As a Steel-Psychic type, Metagross is weak against Ghost, Ground, Fire, and Dark-type Pokemon in Pokemon Go. However, it can resist damage from Normal, Flying, Rock, Steel, Grass, Ice, Fairy, Poison, Psychic, and Dragon types.

You get Metagross in the game by evolving Beldum twice. The process will require 125 Beldum candies, and to be fair, it is worth the effort.

Steel-type Pokemon already enjoy many type advantages, and Metagross is the best among the best. With the moveset mentioned above, its damage output can be greater than a Legendary Pokemon like Dialga.
