Metagross/Solageo (Standard)


#1

So, I just started messing around with this deck. Can’t afford Lele atm… and honestly not sure if it’s NEEDED or not… (Maybe?) but I have had some success with this deck, and would like your opinion on anything I could do to make this deck even better. Just feels a little… slow to get started most times. Thank you in advance :smiley:

Most of the time you don’t need solgaleo, I think it is too clunky to justify it. Take a look at @KPiplup’s 2nd place Metagross list, really strong once it gets rolling.


#3

Also, lele is worth it if you have th money. You probably need 2 for metagross, but you don’t need Shaymin, and the deck is still ridiculously slow with Shaymin so you might as well replace with lele, as you play a lot of supporters, you can play physic energy for the ocassional tapu cure and geotechnical system works with psychic energy.


#4

So… -2 shaymin, +2 lele? Is one enough? And if I do -2 shaymin +1 lele, what else should i ads?
just if you see anything that could make my trainer line better :slight_smile:
also, -2 metal +2 psychic?


#5

I say look at @KPiplup’s list from Madison, that’s a good list. Take from lists that have done well lately, and expand on what you like.


#6

ya the oranguru could be easily replaced


#7

Okay, I got my hands on a lele (so very useful for grabbing skyla!) and I changed up my list a bit. Decided to go with a 2-2-2 line for solgaleo, because I typically only use 1 a game. LMK your thoughts on my updated list. Any advice is always greatly appreciated! Thank you for the comments thus far :slight_smile:

#8

Bring back heavy ball. After a Bridgette, you should have all the basics you need, and heavy ball let’s you get the stage 2 for rare candy.


#9

drop both level balls for 2 heavy balls, or What? or 1 heavy ball then what for the last slot?


#10

Either 2 heavy balls, or 1 heavy ball and a field blower to combat ability lock on garb.


#11

I’ll do 1 heavy ball and 1 more field blower. that helps so much. thank you :smiley:
