Magneton

Magneton

Magneton (メグネトン, Maguneton) is a Electric/Steel-type Magnet Pokémon that is the evolved form of Magnemite when leveled up to level 30, which soon later evolves into Magnezone in certain magnatic areas like Mt. Coronet or Chargestone Cave.

ApperanceEdit

Voice actor: Eric Stuart (both English and Japanese)

Magneton looks like three Magnemite being linked together by a strong magnetic force, which in fact when it is actually a single Magnemite can evolve by itself when no other Magnemite are in the vicinity. Magneton is seen as one Magnemite on top, and two Magnemite linked via body on the bottom, forming a triangle (which have missing two Phillips head screws on opposite sides of the bodies; one each). Even though Magneton, its pre-evolution and its evolution are all mechanical creatures, they still have emotions, can get hungry, and have a way of reproducing. Magneton has been considered to be related to Metang and Bronzong since both are also half Steel-type Pokémon that float by using electromagnetic waves. Its height is 3' 03" and weight is 132.3 lbs.

Special AbilitiesEdit

Magneton can emit strange radio waves that can greatly damage various electronic equipment, raise air temperatures by 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit (2 degrees Celsius) within a 3,300-foot (1,000 meter) radius, and cause earaches for anyone that gets too close to it. Magneton mostly learns attacks that Magnemite is capable of learning. Magneton and its evolutionary chain are the only Electric-type Pokémon to learn Zap Cannon naturally, despite of also being a part Steel-type Pokémon.

BehaviorEdit

Magneton behave similarly to their pre-evolution, Magnemite, in that they generally do not bother people and keep to themselves unless provoked. If they are provoked however, they will resort to non-damaging moves, but, will not hesitate to use more powerful moves if not left alone. Unlike most other evolved Pokémon, in battle, Magneton are very easy to command and rarely lose focus.

When sunspots flare up, Magneton tend to appear more often in the open, presumably due to the changes in the sun's magnetic field.

HabitatEdit

Magneton can usually be found around power plants or any rough terrain where there may be large amounts of metal nearby. Despite their modern, artificial appearance, carvings depicting Magnemite and Magneton have been discovered at the Ruins of Alph, indicating they have existed for at least 1,500 years.
