Metang in Pokémon GO is the evolved form of Beldum, and the step before Metagross. It's a Steel- and Psychic-type Pokémon, and during the currently ongoing Hoenn event in Pokémon GO, players have the opportunity to evolve it into a Metagross with Meteor Mash. As Meteor Mash is among the best moves in Pokémon GO, that proposition is a particularly enticing one. Here's how to get your Metang and turn it into a Meteor Mash-wielding Metagross.

During the Hoenn Pokémon GO event, any Metang that evolves into Metagross will know Meteor Mash. The Steel-type attack is considered one of the best moves in the game, especially for GO Battle League and Gym Battles.

To evolve Beldum into Metang costs 25 Candy, and to go from Metang to Metagross costs 100 Candy. As long as the evolution to Metagross takes place before the Hoenn Celebration ends Jan. 24 at 8 p.m. local time.
