[OVERVIEW]
Meltan has terrible stats across the board and an extremely lackluster movepool. While Meltan can trap Klinklang and remove it, it fails at doing anything else, meaning it is not worth using over any other Klinklang counter such as Palossand, Qwilfish, and Rapidash. These Pokemon can be useful even when the opponent doesn't have Klinklang, and they fulfil more roles.

[SET]
Magnet Pull (Meltan) @ Leftovers
Ability: Magnet Pull
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
IVs: 0 Atk
Bold Nature
- Acid Armor
- Rest
- Flash Cannon
- Thunderbolt

[SET COMMENTS]
This set attempts to trap Klinklang with Magnet Pull and PP stall it with Acid Armor. However, Meltan can't do anything else than that and is completely useless if the opponent doesn't have Klinklang. There are better Klinklang checks such as Alolan Persian and Stunfisk that can also perform other roles.

There are better options as Klinklang checks such as Alolan Persian and Stunfisk (RC) that can also perform other roles.
