Definitely know what you mean Tarquin, after analyzing the new pokemon, they seemed to be created for specific purposes that fit like a puzzle in relation to the other previous generations with very similar attributes all around the competitive spectrum. There will definitely be a lot of controversy when the majority adapts to the final stages of this new generation tarquin. What do you think?
I used both, depending on my mood, but they both do kind of a similar thing: trap stuff while not being able to be set up on. I originally had earthquake over bullet punch but I never found magnezone coming in and random priority is always fun. swampert always wanted to come in on metagross and took either a grass knot or an explosion, which is awesome for tyranitar. the first set doesn't have to blow up to beat swampert while the second set gets the utility of explosion and also a little bit more bulk and power.
I went on a winning streak for 15 or so games with metagross > scizor which was one of those 'just cuz' changes, but then i started getting lucked and put pkmn in the backseat for a few days. ill get back to it over the weekend :)
