    I disagree slightly.

    Explosion in Doubles hates Protect/Wide Guard more than it hates Ghosts imo, on top of that Scrappy is not heavily distributed and can soon become very predictable; the bane of Explosion in both singles and doubles is it's predictability, which STABmons now mitigates a bit by giving all normal-types Explosion on top of all the mons that already had it. I also think the Scrappy mons are outclassed by other mons.

    What could be more useful is Imprison Metagross, which can shut down Protect and allow Metagross to blow up safely. And all those Wide Guard using Rock-types don't take Meteor Mash well either.

    I dunno, with all the spread moves going around, the metagame is really fast paced. I doubt Metagross, even with its bulk, would have the time for Imprison (tried Imprison Cresselia earlier on, got trashed).
