I actually did in my latest playthrough. I believe it was during the summer of 2012, where I was stuck away from home without any internet for about a week, so to pass the time I'd borrowed Sapphire and a GBA SP from one of my friends. Since there wasn't much to do in the post-game, I decided I wanted to catch and train some of the more rare Pokemon. So I got Beldum, and started training it. Not the most entertaining thing in the world, but I eventually evolved it into a Metang, though gave up on the whole task shortly after because it just took too long. So I've never actually owned a Metagross.

I also did the same thing with Bagon, but that's another story ;p

I did, for an...interesting run I did of Sapphire one time.

Basically I had planned to try and solo the game with Blaziken, but along the way I revived Anorith and decided to train that. So I beat the E4 with those two, then found and caught Latias, and then grabbed Beldum and trained that too. Metagross is a world beater, and I just wish there were more games (well, hacks really) where it could be caught before beating the league.

No. Whenever I (re)play a pokemon game, I have my team already built before I start playing. I like it better that way
Plus getting a level 5 pokemon when I have a team of level 50s is a bit useless, and I don't usually use legendaries or pseudo legendaries.

I never actually used it before - Mainly because I've never actually like adding new team members to team after beating elite 4 and champion. I usually have full team of 6 by the end of the game and I'd have to move one of my strong pokemon in a box and switch it for something kinda weak with take down and low leveled - so I usually just get it for dex and nothing else.
I don't care about EV's or IV's - I play for fun not competitive.
I don't own consoles - I play on emulators on my computer.

Metagross is one hell of a badass. I trained it up to probably somewhere around level 80 so I used it quite a bit. Good memories.

I did because then after I beat the game I traded it over to a new game to use at the beginning.

Yes! Mostly because Metagross is a silly strong Pokemon, but also because I thought Beldum was really cool. In one particular runthrough it became a crucial part of my team and eventually was transferred up like everyone else important.

Meteor Mash + Psychic + Earthquake + Hyper Beam

Two STABs, a 100 power, and a 150 power. Beastly, if you ask me. Also, a few PP Maxes never hurt anyone.

I didn't, but my best friend from grade school did, and he gave me the resulting Metagross. I trained it to be good in both battles and contests, and I have it to this day.

Never used it before, until my last playthrough of Emerald (which took from 2011-2013, lol). Finally gained the patience to train it, very glad I did. I EV'd my Swampert, Metagross and Latios and tore up Battle Frontier with them :D

Previously I'd just got bored of its weak attacks and given up - not surprising considering Emerald was obtained when I was about 10.

I did, I really enjoyed the unique steel/psychic mix, and I thought it was awesome every time it used Meteor Mash.

Beldum is the reason why I always complete the game with only five Pokemon in my team. Metagross makes a very good physical attacker/wall for Battle Frontier challenges.

Yeah... I used it... Providing I didn't have to CATCH IT!!! Seriously, Nintendo and Gamefreak must have been high to give it a CATCH RATE OF 3!! Seriously, that's like catching a Mewtwo in the wild... In R/S/E, it was on Steven's table, so you didn't have to catch it, but... in hacks, no. Seriously, hackers, take note of this post, and please, for the love of Arceus, change it's catch rate! Metagross is one hell of a beast in the end, though!

I personally poured a rather crazy amount of time into obtaining and EV-training a Beldum I wanted, on my last playthrough. Since then, it became a core member of my team, and it waits until my friends can finally challenge me to a match.

On that moment, that very Metagross will be waiting for them...

I bothered indeed. :-3 I loved Metagross and Steven so much back then so I just had to train it to become more like him, pffbaha. It was a royal pain to fully evolve but ultimately very worth it as Metagross was a force to be reckoned with.

I very much bothered. I spent countless hours training the thing, and I somehow fell in love with the Agility+Meteor Mash combination. Helped me a LOT in the Battle Frontier, mainly the Battle Dome.

The game can be played.

Actually, no. I've played through Hoenn so many times over the years, and not once have I decided to take the burden of Beldum. Sure, Metagross would make the game a lot easier to complete from a battle standpoint, but there were other Pokemon I favored more in RSE. Now, if the line was introduced in Johto or Sinnoh, Beldum most certainly would have found a spot on my team!

I like Metagross, but I never bothered to train Beldum. For one, you get him after defeating the Champion and it was more of a pain than anything to train him to a high level that far into the game. Also, Beldum doesn't learn any new attacks until level 20 and only becomes strong after evolving into Metagross. Besides Bagon, Beldum probably took the longest to train in RSE. If he was introduced earlier on in the game, I may have used him.
