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.
FC: 5114 4890 0505 Steel Gym Leader of Elite Divided
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.
