Statting Mazinger Z

I was watching the trailer for the new Mazinger Z movie and it hit me that Mazinger Z is basically wearing the Team Rocket uniform. Exchange the red fins for a giant R, and the Hover Pilder for a giant Pokeball, and you're looking at one of James' mecha of mass destruction.

Mazinger Z is pretty interesting because it has four moves, like Pokemon do, and all of them easily fit within the RPG framework of the franchise:

Rocket Punch (Steel/Physical)
Breast Fire (Fire/Special)
Photon Beam (Normal/Special)
Rust Hurricane (Poison/Physical)

You maybe could use Thunder Break (Electric/Special) as Z-Move. I mean, it's perfect. The item held is SUPER ALLOY Z.

Given this, I tried to stat Mazinger Z on the Pokemon scale of things. How powerful would this guy be? Super robots are kind of slow, relative to "real" robots, but then on the wiki I saw this stat:

Running speed: 360 km/hr

For comparison, Rapidash runs 240 km/hr. That's 50% faster. That would put Mazinger's speed tier at either 157 or 158, which is in the top 1% of Pokemon. Only Ninjask and Deoxys Speed are faster, and this is what I imagined as Mazinger's worst stat!

Height: 18 m
Tallest Pokemon: Wailord (14 m)

Weight: 40000 lbs
Heaviest Pokemon: Primal Groudon (2204.4 lbs)

Note that Mazinger also has the ability to lift a maximum of 150 tons at any time. That means that it can throw Primal Groudons like Ash does Pokeballs.

So, I'm reading up on the best ways to make up benchmarks for Mazinger, and I'll list 'em here and give approximates for the attack powers too. Mazinger is pretty tame by super robot standards but it's already clear this guy would be an unholy terror in the Pokemon universe, completely unstoppable and destructive.

Sp. Defense
Speed: 158
