Yeah, this exactly. God forbid that a pseudo-legendary of all things be able to handle a threat that it has a double type advantage over. No, instead Metagross deserves to be portrayed as an incompetent wimp who can't fight its own battles because how dare it not be a marketable mascot.That's not the point. It speaks volumes that he did knock out multiple Weezing in a singular strike, while Orla's Metagross (!) could at best cause only one an injury played for comedic effect. And that doesn't address how Cap kept the remaining swarm of Weezing at bay by his lonesome, to give Friede & Orla enough time to generate the excess smog. He, and Friede by extension, contributed largely to the climax of the episode. Which is, again, where the consternation is coming from as it is a recurring pattern.
