Best Steel Type - Semi Finals

#1Darmanitan14Posted 11/21/2011 1:59:50 PM
Welcome to the Semi finals of the best steel type competition, the winners of yesterdays match ups were Skarmory and Metagross. Lets take a look at todays match up:

Scizor vs Magnezone - Yes Scizor has a really cool design but i have never really found it useful online. Magnezone on the other hand may not have the best design but i really like using it and i like its pre evos.

Skarmory vs Metagross - I love Skarmory, i use him quite a lot online as he has great defence and a good movepool, Metagross on the other hand i just meh to me.

Scizor. Only a bit of prediction is all it takes to kill so many things in the metagame.

Skarmory. I never found Metagross to be all too useful.
Go ahead. You can disagree with me. No pressure. Except for that gun against your head.

Magnezone: I like Scizor much, much better; he's very versatile, can easily become deadly with no/limited setup, and has a really awesome visual design. But Magnezone's one role just happens to be truly irreplacable. The ability to trap and kill Steel types is enormously useful to a large variety of Pokemon, many of which are really interesting underused gimmick Pokemon, whom everyone loves.

Skarmory: I just have never, ever found Metagross to be nearly as good as everyone says he should be, and I've tried for a long time. There are always more versatile, more synergetic and overall more useful Pokemon to have on my teams than Metagross. Skarmory is the opposite, being reliable and useful on pretty much any team within reason.

Scizor-one of my favorite Pokemon from Gen II. It's really fun to use!

Metagross-I love Skarmory don't get me wrong but I've always had a soft spot for Metagross.

Scizor - I used to think he was jush meh at best in the previous generations but I've grown to love the guy on my volt-turn team

Metagross - This guy has so much awesome in him that words can't describe it.

Scizor- that Bullet Punch + Technician + STAB is just amazing. Also, magnezone = 4x ground weakness :(
Scarmory- Excellent wall. Metagross is too slow for me.
Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.
