My metagross moveset, great for both in-game and online play

Metagross @ Life Orb
EVs: 252 Atk / 128 SDef / 128 Spd

Meteor Mash- Super STAB and what's a metagross without this move?
Bullet Punch- Bone-breaking priority STAB and to dish out that last bit of damage to KO a foe
Zen Headbutt - STAB, chance to make foe flinch
*Earthquake/Hammer Arm
- powerful moves, pick either one depending on your team's weaknesses

Couple things. I edited it to make it a bit clearer. You have no nature. And Hammer Arm + Speed EVs is not generally recommended.

Metagross @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Clear Body
EVs:252 Atk / 252 SpE / 4 Hp
Jolly Nature
- Meteor Mash
- Ice Punch
- Earthquake
- Zen Headbutt

Niche:So Basically with his Lackluster Speed its allowed to be outsped by everything so by giving it Max Speed EVs and Choice Scarf it allows it to outspeed more I.e It outspeeds any unboosted Pokemon up to base speed of 130

Metagross @ Scope Lens

Ability: Clear Body

Nature: Hasty (+Speed, -Defense)

-Earthquake (Deals with Fire Pokemon)

-Ice Punch (Deals with Ground Pokemon)

-Magnet Rise (Disable Ground's attacks for five turns)

-Psychic (STAB, good power)

*You can replace Psychic with Rain Dance instead, to decrease the power of Fire attacks.

Generation V

Metagross@rocky helmet

Trait: clear body

Role: tank

Nature: relaxed

EV`s: HP 193/ Attack 247 / Defense 256

Earthquake-covers fire type weaknesses. Its earthquake people!
Stone Edge-totally gets rid of fire types and others .
Meteor Mash-great STAB move and raises attack.
Psychic-another good STAB choice. lowers opponents sp. def. good to use over and over again.

You could also replace any of these moves with agility if you wanted, but I would recommend you stick to this moveset.

EVs= Multiples of 4 :)

193, 247, and 256 are definitely multiples on 4. Plus, there is a cap of 255 EVs in a stat. e_e
