I think it depends on the game? I've seen all three used depending on circumstance - Met (Classic), Metall (MMBN), and Mettaur (Command Mission)

A very tricky question to answer. You've got Mets and Neo Mets in MM1 and 2, but also Metall Cannons in MM5. I don't think I've ever seen them referred to as Mettaurs in the classic series, though I could be wrong.

'Met' is probably short for either Metall or Mettaur.

I always called it Met

The Japanese writing is, if I'm not mistaken, "Mettoru", which can probably be translated to Metall or Metool. Which one is correct? I have no idea.

Fun fact nobody wants to know: when I just started getting into the mm franchise, I thought they were called hardhats
Anyway, I think in every classic game they are called Metalls

I believe Mets where briefly referred to as Metool in Battle Network, before later being renamed to Mettaur in later entries.

Metall it is then I guess, kind of hard to argue with official concept art.

Metalls are in MM classic, Mettaurs are in MMBN and Mettenas are in MMSF.
Met is a short name for all of them and Mettool is an alternative transcription for Metall (they're both spelled Mettōru in japanese)
