Cobalion In the Meta

Raid Meta – Metal Claw / Iron Head

Cobalion is a usable, though underwhelming, Steel-Type Attacker. Its performance is similar to Aggron, with slightly lower DPS and higher Bulk. Which in practice means it has even worse performance. While in the past this level of performance would still be acceptable-we also have Durant and Exadrill as new (superior) additions to the Steel-Type meta. It’s fighting duel-typing doesn’t even negate any of its Steel weaknesses (although Steel negates all of it’s Fighting ones). You really probably don’t need to use Cobalion, but they are still quite the jump up for Registeel at least.

Closing Thoughts

This Gen 5 Legendary has a pretty slick look even if it isn’t the most powerful Steel-Type, and is a great way to kick of this merry trio of Legendaries this November!
