Bronzong (ドータクン) is the 89th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Steel/Psychic Type, and it is known as the Bronze Bell Pokémon.

Bronzong can have one of two Abilities: Levitate, which makes it immune to Ground-Type moves that cause damage, or Heatproof, which reduces the amount of damage it takes from Fire-Type attacks and Burns by 50%. A third Ability is available to Bronzong from the Dream World, the Heavy Metal Ability. This Ability doubles its weight, which has an effect on moves that depend on either the weight of the user or the target.

Bronzor can evolve into Bronzong at Level 33.

Bronzong is in the Mineral Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Bronzong One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Bronzong's usage in Competitive Battling is as a defensive wall, and combining that with having one weakness if its using the Levitate Ability plus a strong movepool that is loaded with support moves. Its low Speed also makes it a great Trick Room candidate, and is a viable option for this role in the Under-Utilized, Over-Utilized and Uber Tiers.
