As part of the finale of the Season of Mischief, we were gifted with a series of spotlight hours, raid hours and other events. The last Spotlight Hour was Beldum’s, so if you were lucky enough, you hopefully got yourself enough candies for a Metagross and a good Beldum with good stats.

If so, then you’re in the right place. We’ll walk you through what moves are the best to have for your Metagross. So you can rock up to Gyms and just eviscerate any opponent.
