It really depends on your team but personally I would say Yes

I used Magnezone in one of my playthroughs and I really enjoyed it, it evolves at some very nice moments in the game always managing to keep up with the team and it also gets great coverage and resistances. If your team already has a weakness to ground types then in that case I would say don't do it. But Magnezone pairs really well with both the water and grass starter as both can deal with his 4x ground weakness. Water is probably the better starter to choose for Magnezone as it also takes fire attacks for him.

In any case Magnezone is a strong Special Attacker and evolves at really good times during the game, so if your team synergizes well then Magnezone is definitely worth it.

Nice answer Mr.K I'm going to finish our leap frog game :D
You got my vote for Class N00b though!

Yeah, Magnezone is a strong Pokemon.

>In a metagame where offensive threats have taken over, Magnezone finds it difficult to truly fit in. Despite its major offensive presence in its Special Attack, Magnezone is outsped by every single offensive Pokemon in the tier; most of them wielding a super effective attack against it. Walling Magnezone isn't that difficult either with Pokemon like Hippowdon and Celebi.
However, one must look closer to find the real usefulness in Magnezone. It has an excellent ability in Magnet Pull, an ability that traps Steel-types; as Magnezone has all the necessary tools to rid of them, specifically its STAB Electric-type moves and Hidden Power Fire, it's not only an aid to Dragon-types, it's also helpful to teams that struggle against Steel-types in general. Despite its common weaknesses, Magnezone's Steel typing grants it some useful resistances and is paired with its decent defenses. One must not overlook its stellar base 130 Special Attack as well. Overall, Magnezone must be used with caution if it plans to guide the team to victory. ~Smogon

But it depends on your team. If you already have Steel and Electric types in your team the answer is no, otherwise sure it will be good.
