X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Bullet Punch should combine with Flash Cannon for one of the best Steel movesets.
  • Zen Headbutt can be paired with Psychic should one desire a bulky Psychic attacker.
  • Earthquake lacks STAB and type synergy.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Zen Headbutt has the higher power and is better as a result.
  • Flash Cannon is off type with Zen Headbutt and doesn’t leave Metagross toothless against Dark-types.
  • Psychic has the same power and is slightly harder to dodge.
  • Earthquake has the same power and is super easy to dodge.
Rating Explanation

Dragonite was and still is one of the best Pokemon in the game. Tyranitar is and will continue to be a superior Dark-type attacker.

Metagross, comparatively, is a disappointment. Its huge CP and stats lack good moves to make them shine. As a Psychic attacker, it’s notable for being durable, and that’s about it. It finds its niche as a Steel attacker, where it barely outperforms Scizor, and Steel-type offense isn’t much of a niche to begin with.
