5 most popular Steel Pokemon in Sword and Shield
#5 - Dialga
With the Diamond & Pearl hype going around within the Pokemon community, Dialga has become incredibly popular.
Dialga has a great design, and it can control time. That's quite a unique ability, making it deserving of being on this list. Steel/Dragon is also an incredible typing.
#4 - Jirachi
The mythical Pokemon, Jirachi, has been a fan-favourite since its portrayal in the movie. Jirachi has the ability to teleport anything from anywhere. It also has the ability to grant wishes.
This Pokemon dawns the Steel typing without having the stereotypical features. Its design is unforgettable with a wishing eye on its stomach.
#3 - Scizor
Scizor is one of the greatest additions in Generation II. Evolving from Scyther with a metal coat and retractable wings, Scizor is an absolute menace.
It's incredibly strong with its steely exterior, and fans love it.
#2 - Metagross
Champion Steven's ace Pokemon, Metagross, is one of the scariest Pokemon in Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire. In the remakes Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, Mega Metagross is a force to be reckoned with.
Metagross's Mega form even managed to win a Wolrd Championships in VGC. Metagross was incredibly elusive in Ruby & Sapphire, only obtainable as a gift after beating Champion Steven.
#1 - Lucario
The most popular Steel Pokemon in Sword and Shield and possibly of all time is Lucario. Lucario got 2nd place in 2020's popularity poll, only losing to Greninja.
Lucario was given a Mega form in Sword and Shield. Lucario's also a part movie of the 2005 movie Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.
