    I've heard many theorize that it'll get Tough Claws for its new ability, but Levitate on top of its increased stats would be a fantastic ability for it to have.

    The big question is whether this Mega Evolution will go the same way as the other pseudo-legendary Mega Evolutions, merely serving as a niche alternative to the original or whether it'll completely revolutionize how effective Metagross is.

    I'm not as hyped about this one as I was about Sceptile and Sableye, but there's definitely a lot of intrigue about this one.

  7. Well, at least it means Steven isn't getting a random Charizard after all, or it only exists for demonstrations. I'm not sure what to think of its design, I like it and all, but I can't be the only one that thinks it is suffering major constipation while trying to poop out a Metang.
  8. I am not sure whether or not it will have the Ability Levitate, but the regular Metagross, while generally being shown walking on the ground with its arms, can also be seen floating sometimes in either the anime or the movies. As this one is already floating, I don't think that movement will be a problem. :)

    It's not easy to make out, but you can identify the same shapes of the first characters and after that there's only one translation that makes sense:


    Megagross has Tough Claws. "Powers up moves that make direct contact by 33%".
  10. What I meant is that if his claws are on the ground he would be facing downward the way he is posed.

    Looking at it more closely though it looks like its arms are on ball hinges so I suppose he could rotate the body which could work.

  12. Hmm, not a huge fan of the design, but I'm happy it got a Mega evolution :)
    To add, I like how it has golden stripes like it's shiny form.

    I added some images of shiny Mega Metagross to its above page. It looks pretty damn sweet in its shiny version, too.

    Meta Metagross was one mega that I've wanted from the start, particularly because my held-item of choice for standard Metagross was simply a Life Orb. Mega evolving the beast replaces the need for such perfectly. Can't wait to try one in battle. ♥

  14. That Shiny Mega Metagross is so freaking awesome!!!!!!!!!!!
  15. Well... everybody loves metagross
  16. Not me because it is like bronzong which are really annoying since their levitate ability makes them immune to ground type attacks leaving it with ONE WEAKNESS. but still i would not want to get in the way of this Mega, talk about a bulldozer, but i think it's kind of funny because it looks like a pod racer from STAR WARS!
