What are some Pokémon you put effort into hoping they’d be amazing, but ended up being pretty bad?
For me it’s definitely Metagross. On paper, he looks good. His typing is appealing, the best defensive type and a pretty good offensive type mushed into a mon that, in the core games and anime, is seen as a powerhouse with high stats. I expected him and Salamence to follow the footsteps of their older psuedo-kin, Tyranitar and Dragonite, and become staples to the competitive meta, or at the very least be viable. Salamence met my expectations and is a great mon overall, but Metagross is just disappointing.
