Metagross DX:

Unlimited 1/5: 2 for a potential 70 isn't special in unlimited. sorry.

Modified 4/5: This card is excellent in Modified. Fits in MetaDrag , has a whole DECK built around it (MSN). This card deserves a 4/5

Limited 4/5: 100HP , excellent Pokepower to charge your other pokemon. Definitely 100% awesome.

4/4 Metagross DX

This is one of my favorite cards in the current format. It's just so versatile. The cost of 1 damage counter for energy acceleration from the discard is more than cheap. Also, if you bring back a metal energy onto a metal Pokemon, you essentially nullify that damage counter if you are attacked.

It's a core part of MSN, but it can do so much more than power a Steelix ex. It also powers a Lati@s* in 1 turn if you have 2 out, or basically any other Pokemon if you use Holon Pokemon. It has no restrictions on what type of Pokemon you can attach it to (besides being active of course), compared to Flygon d and Altaria ex d. It also works wonders with yesterday's card, Scizor ex.

Enough about other Pokemon. What about its own attack? 2 for 70 is just awesome. The only problem for Metagross is Pokemon that have no energy or 1 energy attached. Meeting 2, 3, or even 4 energies is not hard at all, if you have another Metagross out. Metagross is a great response to an opponent's threat after you lose your active since it can power itself up in no time.

In summary, Metagross can do just about evreything: support, energy acceleration, attack, counter.

4.5 / 5

Metagross is the driving force behind Scizorgross, MSN(BC) and used in some Metanite builds. The damage does build up but equipping energies to your pokemon quickly and efficently is a force to be reckoned with. Of course, the card is not splashable because it must be defended with cards such as windstorm. The attack and retreat cost is not so good however.
