The Jim Reaper
Stats: 80 / 135 / 130 / 95 / 90 / 70
Ability: Clear Body:
Nullifies stat drops from the opponent. This means that Intimidate and moves like Sticky Webs and Rock Tomb will not lower Metagross's stats. This does not work on self inflicted stat drops such as Hammer Arm.
An excellent ability, as its attack does not drop with Intimidate. It also allows it to switch in while Sticky Webs are in place and switch in safely into moves like Icy Wind.
Stats: 80 / 145 / 150 / 105 / 110 / 110
Ability: Tough Claws:
Boosts the power of physical contact moves by 33 percent.
An amazing ability, especially for a Pokemon who's whole relevant movepool consists of mostly physical contact moves.
Overall, Metagross is a great Pokemon, able to become a threat to all playstyles after Mega Evolution.
