Ironically enough, through another Shiny Metagross, they actually showed this with an impressive visual in the DP saga for the base form. When the TRio were antagonizing the Metagross, it visually calculated the trajectory of Psychically controlled boulders, lending to the analytical processing powers of its four brains. For the first time, it wasn't just portrayed as a mechanical looking brute in battle.
- The announcer points out Metagross "predicting" Pikachu's moves (presumably with its supercomputer brains). Steven says pretty much exactly the same thing within seconds.
But I wouldn't have known that that was happening here, along with the apparently drastic damage from Fishious Rend, based on the animation alone. Which is a shame as this was yet another unimpressive Metagross for Pikachu to ultimately, routinely defeat. Whatever happened to show and not tell?
