Description: A huge, turquoise robot, Metagross is shaped like a giant flying saucer with four chunky, robotic legs. There is a large, silver X across its face, as well as three sharp silver claws on the bottom of each foot. Its red eyes are sunken deep into its face which is indistinguishable from the rest of its body. The bottom half of its body in hinged, however, able to open to reveal a massive mouth. Metagross will tuck their legs beneath their body when employing their magnetism to levitate above the ground. Having roughly the intelligence of a super computer, Metagross is formed by two Metangs fusing together and, therefore, has four brains linked together with a complex neural network.

Even more complicated, when Metagross evolves, it fuses with another Metang and two Beldum. Mega Metagross never touches the ground, constantly hovering with magnetism and psychic energy. Its legs shift to arms while it gains four additional legs on the back of its body. The X on its face turns gold and a spike forms on its chin to look somewhat like a goatee. Mega Metagross' many brains all work together simultaneously, allowing it analyze the battlefield and determine a successful plan of attack almost instantly. If it cannot find a means of winning, it will attempt to attach itself to its opponent and self destruct.
