    Of course I used Beldum! Metagross is one of my all time favorites. It has good attack and defense stats and all you have to do to bump up its speed stat is to teach it agility. Needless to say, the moves it can learn are epic and I have always used it every chance that I can.

      I think i may have trained it on one of my play throughs for pokedex completion but never properly, i think it was left in the daycare for most of the time.. however i'm planning on soft resetting for a shiny one in the near future

        I did, but only for the sake of completing the Dex. Otherwise, I never bothered to put it on my team. I generally didn't like Steel-types back in Gen 3 and prior, with the exception of Skarmory.

          After I beat the Champion I closed the game and did not open it again. Never went to get the Beldum. I still have the Regis, Latias and Rayquaza to catch but I won't bother with the Beldum.

          I think I'm one of the very few that didn't get Beldum. I didn't know that Steven had a free Beldum for me. After I defeated the Elite Four, I don't remember much of what I did with the game anymore before I lost my save file.

            I most certainly did train it! Its one of my essential and favorite Pokemon to put on a team. Sadly It was a downer that you get it after you beat the game, seeing that every time I play the game I get a Gardevoir for my team and really don't need another psychic Pokemon in my team. But if you give him TM's such as Shadowball and Earthquake, he's extremely useful to have in a team.

              I traded Beldum to my other game and then boxed it until my other pokemon were around lvl 20. Then I quick leveled it and used it through the rest of the game. I even bred ot and sent the baby beldum back after I started the first game over

              I've never actually tried using Beldum in-game but I have used Metagross a lot on online battle simulators if that counts? Beldum was never interesting to me at the time of RSE so I couldn't be bothered to train one (especially given how slowly he levels up!) but I did always get it for Pokédex purposes. I guess I've never been a fan of using the psuedo-legends because they make the games too easy so it was a relationship doomed to fail haha.

                Well,I still using it.
                BTW,I'm cheating to obtain rare candys,so then it last evolved to metagross(to match our party pokemon).
                Their moves are:
                1. Meteor mash
                2. Metal Claw
                3. Earthquake
                4. Psychic
                Why I choose it?
                Because:
                1. Pseudo Legendary;with legendary like catch rate
                2. It became sweeper
                3. 3/4 move are STAB
                4. Unaffected by Intimidate,etc.

                  I got him and trained him up to use him in an old school link battle with my friend.

                  Totally worth it.

                    On my emeral I trained it up and made it apart of my second team I was training g at the time, in my sapphire though, I didn't bother with it. Then again I had a bunch of eggs that I never got to hatch (a friend took the game and restarted it)

                      I always put it in my box, which I guess I kinda regret. But if Game Freak gave us Beldum at the beginning of the game (much like Bagon), I would definitely welcome it to my team. Because Metagross is definitely hardcore beast!!!

                        In emerald I had several teams in place before I acquired Beldum. However I have faced metagross quite a few times in battles against my friends. So I tool the time into raising it. But then I got a ds and completely forgot about it

                          I always get the Beldum, but I never raise it. The only hope for the Beldum in my games is for it to be transfered to a new Ruby save and be raised there. I just can't be bothered with a Pokemon that I can't breed to perfection.

                              I didn't get any bother. I use it in my team any trained it well. Its now 59 or something. And i really like Metang. Its a great well designed Pokemon. Now i am thinking of Using it in my 3rd league. I mean i am gonna use it when i will battle 3rd time the league. And i am happy to have him. I used Exp share first to rise up his lvl to 20 so he can fight on his own. Then i returned to first and 2nd towns and make it grow up. It evolved when he was something like 40 or 30 lvled. Then again it evolved into metang in 50 or something. I t evolved earlier then that but i didn't let it evolve. Because the stronger it will be the strong evolve it will. So then i trained him tooo good. Now i am training it in all the region. I hope it will help me in Future. when i will challenge the league.

                              Oh yes!

                              I bothered with Beldum alright. I took it, trained it, evolved it, and made it a team member.

                              Metagross = Almost the best Pokemon you'd have in Gen III.

                              Since I didn't get the Beldum unitl I was already done crafting my team, I never bothered with it. If we got it earlier in the game than that, though, I'm sure it would've found some use in my team, as I've enjoyed using it in a few of the newer games.

                                I bothered with Beldum alright. I took it, trained it, evolved it, and made it a team member.

                                Metagross = Almost the best Pokemon you'd have in Gen III.

                                Hey Unidentifield yes Metagross is a cool and really handy Pokemon but we can't call it the best. But yeah in a way its better then some Pokemon.

                                Look like Brendino Craft his\her team well. yeah the whole game is too enjoyable. And Metagross and Beldum make it more enjoyable.

                                  Nah, I never bothered with it. My bro spent hours training it to a Metagross. I didn't even take the Beldum a few times.

                                        Of course I picked up the Beldum -- free Pokemon! XD In all seriousness, though, I did have a lot of use for it, because I was a huge Pokedex nut, so I raised it up to catalog it.

                                          Sure, I trainted it, but you couldn't say it wasn't frustrating having to use take down for 20 levels before evolution. Any it was useful for breeding Beldum Eggs with the right IVs and all. Metagross is the real reward here, he is one wonderful sweeper. So it's pretty worth it. Unless you decide that after you beat the E4 you're high tailing outta here. XD

                                            I didn't seem to train Beldum up after I acquired it. I already had my team set, so I didn't have any use for it.
