Light Metal

Description

The wielder's weight is halved. This decreases the power of the wielder's Heat Crash and Heavy Slam, increases damage taken from an opponent's Heat Crash and Heavy Slam, and reduces damage taken from an opponent's Grass Knot or Low Kick.

Competitive Use

Scizor values Technician Bullet Punch and Pursuit too much to opt for Light Metal. Metagross is more likely to be hit by Intimidate than by Low Kick or Heat Crash, making Clear Body the superior option. Metagross would not take less damage from any of the attacks either. In UU, where Low Kick is more prevalent and stat-lowering effects are less common, Light Metal actually becomes a viable option for Registeel.
