Movesets for Singles


What is a good competitive moveset for Metapod? These builds have been optimized for Pokemon competing in Gold/Silver Single Battles. The movesets and EVs have been specifically calibrated to deal the most amount of damage to the largest group of potentially common opponents and typing threats for the Gold/Silver generation metagame.


Metapod is a decent Bug-typed Pokemon. Metapod is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield. There were no known abilities back in the Gold/Silver Pokemon games. Metapod is weak to Fire, Flying, and Rock-typed attacks.
