Metagross has the Clear Body Ability. This Ability makes it immune to having its Statistics lowered from an opponent's attack, but can still reduce its own Statistics as a result of moves that it uses, such as Hammer Arm. A second Ability is available to Metagross from the Dream World, the Light Metal Ability. This Ability cuts its weight in half, which affects the amount of damage it takes from moves that involve a Pokémon's weight, such as Low Kick.
Beldum can evolve into a Metang at Level 20, and can evolve a second time at Level 45 into Metagross. Starting in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, a Metagross can Mega Evolve into a Mega Metagross by using a Mega Stone.
Metagross is in the Mineral Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 10,240 Steps to hatch. It takes a Metagross 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Metagross takes on the appearance of a four-legged iron monster with an X on its face. Its eyes are on opposite sides of the X.

 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Metagross finds itself in the Over-Utilized and Uber Tiers of Competitive Battling. It hits hard with a very high Attack, and it has a very high Defense as well. While its Special Attack and Special Defense Statistics aren't as high, the former is high enough to run a Mixed Sweeper set.
Metagross's low Speed doesn't do it any favors, allowing for faster Sweepers to cause a lot of damage to Metagross, ranging from hitting it with a Burn to dealing a lot of damage, if not KO'ing it in one hit.
