Metagross used to be my favorite pseudo legendary, but Hydreigon's awesome design made it take this spot.

Who would win?

Probably Hydreigon in most cases.

Who do you prefer?

Hydreigon, better design.

Who is more useful?

Hmmm....I have to go with Metagross on this one, although not by much.

They're both very good Pokemon, but I prefer Metagross. Hydreigon has an awesomely cool typing, but neither of its type defend each other from their weaknesses, unlike Steel/Psychic, one of my favourite combinations in the game. Metagross has great all round stats aside from its speed, which can easily be fixed with Bullet Punch or Agility, and a strong physical attacker who is immune to Intimidate is never a bad thing. Hydreigon's 98 base speed also ticks me off.

Like them both, but I'll go with Metagross, as I like its design better, it has a cooler Shiny form, and is pretty unusual for a pseudo-legendary.

I quite like both, but I'm giving it to Hydreigon purely cause I like it's name better and I just like the dark and dragon-type a bit more than steel-type. I also actually use Hydreigon more than Metagross, mostly because I'm unusually lazy in regards to evolving the Beldum line for some reason.
