Well explosion from metagross does about Damage: 52.40% - 61.68%
So, if you outsped it and skarm was weakened, you can blow up on it before it has a chance to roost.
I wanted to say that, but I haven't had the time to make a full proper rate, so I might update this or post again.
What I immediately noticed was a weakness to zapdos. I guess it can only really come in on scizor, and then you would be u-turning to mence or whatever else. And then latias isn't a terrible switch-in to zapdos, but the lack of calm mind kinda hurts.
