Metagross @ Leftovers
Ability: Clear Body
EVs: 252 HP/96 Atk/46 Def/116 SDef
Impish nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Meteor Mash
- Pursuit
- Hammer Arm
- Thunderpunch

I Created this set to be able to switch in and counter whatever rogue threat came in on my team such as a dragondance gyarados, With his spread he can make fighting latias much less frightening to stare into the face of draco meteor or to switch into CB Tyranitar
What would ye recommend? I just wanted something to switch in, take the hit and threaten

It successfuly beats most variants of Latias, Tyranitar, Gyarados, Lucario, Gengar and has no problem forcing scizor out

Lucario can only beat me with SD Closecombat, so thats a no go, but i normaly have gengar at my side these days...

It can only switch in once... That kind of sucks
When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

I don't see how it defeats Scizor, Mence, Lucario, Gyara, and stuff like that. You can beat Gyara 1 on 1, but you might as well be hit on the switch in and lose the next time Gyara comes in

Actualy +1gyara still takes 3 shots to take it, unless I give it ice punch than no he wont be killing salamence, scizor cant touch him regardless and I must check again if Lucario OHKOs with +2Close combat

CB U-Turn seems to hurt a lot more than anything you have there
