Mega Metagross, the Mega Evolution of Metagross activated by using Mega Stone, was revealed on July 14, 2014 in the official Pokémon website. It retains its Steel and Psychic-typings.

Mega Metagross uses the Tough Claws Ability which increases the Attack power of moves that require physical contact against the opposing Pokémon.

Metagross can Mega Evolve into Mega Metagross if it is holding a Metagrossite.

Competitive Battling

Mega Metagross resides in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. With a great ability in Tough Claws and a strong 145 base Attack, Mega Metagross is a physical force in the tier. Coupled with a great 110 base Speed and good 80/150/110 bulk, Mega Metagross can have numerous switch-in opportunities and put heavy pressure on opposing teams as a result. Its best sets are its all-out attacking set that has good coverage options to handle the majority of the Pokémon in the tier and its Rock Polish set that gives Mega Metagross a nice Speed boost and a means to sweep. The flaws in Mega Metagross are its lackluster Speed prior to Mega evolving and its susceptibility to status which can be troubling when trying to check some Pokémon, such as Will-O-Wisp Mega Gardevoir or Thunder Wave Clefable. Despite this, Mega Metagross is a threat not to be underestimated and a phenomenal Mega evolution.
