So I'm debating for these 2 pokes to go with my 3 on 3 Battle Tree team and don't know what to use. Either it's

Metagross @Metagrossite
Ability: Clear Body---->Tough Claws
Evs: 252Atk 252Spe 4HP
Nature: Adamant
Meteor Mash (OP STAB)
Zen Headbutt (STAB)
Earthquake (Killing)
Hammer Arm (More Death)


Lucario @Lucarionite
Ability: Inner Focus---->Adaptability
Evs: 252Atk 252Spe 4SpDef
Nature: Adamant
Swords Dance (Boost Attack)
High Jump Kick (STAB)
Earthquake (Because I can)
Extreme Speed (Best. Priority. Ever.)

Can anyone help me?

By the way, I use them with these:

Volcarona @Leftovers
Ability: Flame Body
Evs: 252SpA 200Spe 58Def
Nature: Modest
Fiery Dance
Bug Buzz
Giga Drain

and also with

Swampert @Groundium Z
Ability: Torrent
Evs: 252Atk 252Spe 4HP
Nature: Adamant
Brick Break
Ice Punch
Plus, the Metagross is shiny as I got a random encounter with a shiny Adamant Nature Beldum.
How do you use mega evolution and z-moves in the same game
No it's just for if I don't/can't mega evolve then I have a Z Move ready - I've had a few occasions where for whatever reason, I have not mega evolved so I have the Z move just in case.

Because you're playing 3v3 singles, I'd recommend mega Metagross. Unlike Lucario, it's much more bulky and better at switching into attacks, and its ability boosts its coverage moves as well as its STAB attacks. Other than that, they're pretty much the same, so use Metagross. By the way, you should probably replace zen headbutt and hammer arm with ice punch and thunder punch for covering the relatively common ground, dragon, and water type walls.
