    Metagross is one of my favorite pokémon ever, so yeah, I'm biased.
    It is also one of the best in terms of tanking hits and hitting hard, and would defeat Hydreigon in a fight.no because hydreigon is an special attacker and I keep forgetting that

    Though I do like Hydreigon a bit (yet I preffer its preevolutions)... But still, Metagross is by far my prefference.


    Amusingly enough, for some reason when I first saw it I thought the Deino line was a dragon/grass type, a type convination I've been looking forward forever. I just thought they looked like some weird purple plant.

    Who would win?

    Hydreigon

    Who do you prefer?

    Although I prefer steel over dragon, I'll go with Hydreigon, since Metagross' design is very very weird.

    Who is more useful?

    Hydreigon, I guess?

    I voted Metagross way back when this thread was first created.

    I've since changed my mind. Metagross is definitely cool, but I like Hydreigon's design better. I also like that it's special based, which is awesome. Lastly, Fire Blast would probably defeat Metagross in a battle more often than not.

    So yeah, I like them both, but I like Hydreigon more.

    My mistake, Metagross would indeed only (barely) take the Fire Blast from an offensive Hydreigon if it were equally deffensively built... in which case it'd mean not KOing Hydreigon anyway.

    And it's not even practical for Metagross to invest in special stats at all to begin with, so yeah. I stand corrected.

    Who would win?
    One hit from a Fire Blast, or even a Flamethrower from Hydreigon and Metagross is toast.

    Who do you prefer?
    Both have unique types, stats, move pools, appearances, and various capabilities in battle. I like both of them a lot, but Hydreigon slightly trumps Metagross being a Dragon type (my favourite type)

    Who is more useful?
    As I stated above they both have very versatile move pools and can pull off a number of different strategies in battle. I would say though Hydreigon being more specially orientated makes it slightly more useful in my opinion.

    So all in all Hydreigon gets my vote.

    Metagross used to be my favorite pseudo legendary, but Hydreigon's awesome design made it take this spot.

    Who would win?

    Probably Hydreigon in most cases.

    Who do you prefer?

    Hydreigon, better design.

    Who is more useful?

    Hmmm....I have to go with Metagross on this one, although not by much.

    They're both very good Pokemon, but I prefer Metagross. Hydreigon has an awesomely cool typing, but neither of its type defend each other from their weaknesses, unlike Steel/Psychic, one of my favourite combinations in the game. Metagross has great all round stats aside from its speed, which can easily be fixed with Bullet Punch or Agility, and a strong physical attacker who is immune to Intimidate is never a bad thing. Hydreigon's 98 base speed also ticks me off.

    Who is this git?
