So what I got

HP 104
Attack 405
Defense 1530
Sp. Attack 473
Sp. Defense 1020
Speed: 158

Mazinger Z is able to tank a Breast Fire without being destroyed, and Fire is the main weakness of Steel types. So I used Mega Charizard Y's Fire Blast, scaled up to 240 Power, on a critical against +6 max Sp.D Metagross. The HP stat comes from the average of several big Pokemon and the most mecha-like: Mega Ray, Wailord, Steelix and Skarmory.

Mega Charizard Y's super Fire Blast will KO Mazinger 87% of the time, which is acceptable I think. So the final stats seem to be divided into three distinct categories:

Believable: HP, Speed
Unbelievable: Attack, Special Attack
Ridokulus: Defense, Special Defense

The power scale for the attacks isn't out of nowhere either. Mazinger shoots Photon Beam with both eyes and Breast Fire with both fins, and both attacks have huge AoE. So they'd be 100% accurate on top of being hugely destructive.

How would you stop this? It would have to be gimmicks because it's so powerful. Like Shedinja or FEAR Aron. Rust Hurricane might be the weakest attack here with something like a 140 Power that causes 100% burn (as would Breast Fire). But it's all offense as Mazinger relies on outrageous defense and resistances to tank attacks.

I don't see any Pokemon that could go toe-to-toe with it in a traditional bout. Ghost/Steel would eat the Photon Beams and resist the Rocket Punch and Rust Hurricane, but almost be totally destroyed by Breast Fire. Which is how things rolled in the show!
