PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Iron Tail and Heavy Slam make for Mega Steelix' strongest moveset.
  • Earthquake is the move of choice if the goal is long-term Ground Type boosts, for the raid team but the lack of a Ground Type Fast Move is definitely a problem. The secondary pick here should be chosen based on the situation:
    • In entirely neutral scenarios, Iron Tail will tend to pull ahead.
    • Thunder Fang and Dragon Tail are slightly behind due to a lack of STAB, but both are perfectly viable if Iron Tail is resisted and/or either one is Super Effective.
  • Crunch is all-around inferior.

PVE Overview

Mega Steelix is not good for raids. Flat-out, it's destined for obscurity. However, it's not entirely useless. Long-lived Pokemon like Mega Steelix have the advantage of granting their Mega Boost to the entire team for a prolonged period of time, making them situationally very effective in raids. However, this will only work if the entire raid team works together to load in specific types at the same time. 

As of this writing, Ground and Steel are both entirely non-represented in released Mega Evolutions outside of Mega Steelix, so boosting these two types is its only job. It's destined to be almost entirely outclassed by Mega Metagross as a Steel Mega outside of very large raid groups that don't really need the boost, and it will be a bit more secure in its Ground Type role long-term... but not by much.
