What Abilities Will Metagross Have in Pokemon Unite?

 

Metagross will be introduced in Pokemon Unite in the Allrounder class of Pokemon. As such their abilities in the game are going to be focused on damage output as well as defense. Let us take a look at Metagross’s abilities in Pokemon Unite:



  • Iron Defense: The user is granted a shield, and the user's next basic attack becomes a boosted attack.
  • Tackle: Has the user scan to see if there is an opposing Pokémon in front of it. If there is, the user charges toward the opposing Pokémon it finds, dealing damage to it.
  • Zen Headbutt: Has the user fire a psychic wave in a forward direction, then charge toward the opposing Pokémon it hits, dealing damage and throwing them.
  • Upgrade: Reduces damage taken from opposing Pokémon for a short time after the user deals damage.
  • Magnet Rise: Has the user levitate for a set amount of time using electrically-generated magnetism, increasing the user's movement speed. If the user performs a basic attack while levitating, the user falls on the ground forcefully, dealing damage to nearby opposing Pokémon and throwing them. Upgrade: While levitating, the user receives reduced damage from opposing Pokémon.
  • Meteor Mash: Has the user charge power in its fist, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in an area of effect while granting itself a shield. The more opposing Pokémon this move hits, the more the shield effect is strengthened and the more damage the user's Ideals with its next basic attack. This next basic attack hits with a hard punch fired like a meteor, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in an area of effect.
  • Upgrade: Restores the user's HP when the punch hits an opposing Pokémon.
  • Gyro Ball: Has the user spin rapidly, dealing damage to nearby opposing Pokémon. When the outer edge of the spin hits an opposing Pokémon, the user is granted a shield. If this move hits many opposing Pokémon, or hits Pokémon on the opposing team, the shield effect becomes stronger.
  • Upgrade: If the shield effect remains for a set amount of time, the user recovers the same amount of HP as the remaining shield effect.



UNITE MOVE

 

  • Metagross can quickly analyze the position of nearby opposing Pokémon, granting the user a shield effect based on the number of opposing Pokémon scanned. 
  • When X or fewer opposing Pokémon are scanned, the user lunges toward the opposing Pokémon with the lowest HP, dealing damage to it. If an opposing Pokémon is knocked out by this move, the user recovers a portion of its Unite Move gauge.
  • When X or more opposing Pokémon are scanned, the user lunges toward the opponent with the lowest HP, dealing damage to nearby opposing Pokémon and creating a wall around itself.
