Metagross is a gigantic, robotic Pokémon with a disc-shaped blue body and four legs. The primary body seems to be both head and body, and the whole architecture of this Pokémon gives it the appearance of a robotic spider. It utilizes its bulk to hold down its victim before devouring it with its enormous jaws. In the middle of its face is a big, metallic cross. A crimson eye peeps forth through a gap in Metagross’s steel armor on each side of the cross. Ball-and-socket joints connect its four legs to the main body. While the top half of the legs is rather thin, the lower portion is somewhat thicker. Each leg bears three small claws on the end, as well as a flat, blunt projection that extends above the knee. Metagross can float in the air by tucking his legs in.

It floats perpetually like Mega Metagross, and its legs transform into arms. It gets four legs on the back of its skull as well. The cross on its face becomes pale gold, and two little holes and a spike appear just below the cross, creating the appearance of a goatee.

Metagross is the product of the union of two Metang. Metagross now has four brains, all linked by a complicated network of neurons. Because of these extensive connections and the amount of brains, this Pokémon is more clever than a supercomputer and capable of executing sophisticated computations. During combat, it employs its intellect to evaluate its opponents. Metagross utilizes its incredible power to imprison a prey with its four claws and body. This enables Metagross to chew its prey to pieces with its huge jaws and teeth. This Pokémon is found on rugged terrain. Metagross may also be found on snowy slopes since their magnetic strengths increase in cold temperatures.

Mega Metagross is formed by joining together a Metagross, a Metang, and two Beldum. Its numerous brains analyze information at the same time, allowing it to judge the tide of a fight calmly and beat its opponent with precision. Mega Metagross also employs mental force inside its body to unleash devastating assaults. Its claws are as strong as steel and can readily crush through big boulders. Mega Metagross becomes a ferocious opponent who will grab at victory by any means, no matter how horrifyingly brutal, as Mega Evolution activates its numerous brains and raises its intellect. If victory is judged unachievable, Metagross will sink its claws into its opponent before exploding.
