Bronzor can use one of two Abilities: Levitate, which nullifies Ground-Type attacks and gives it an immunity to Spikes, or Heatproof, which reduces the damage done by Fire-Type attacks and the Status Condition Burn by 50%. A third Ability is available to Bronzor from the Dream World, the Heavy Metal Ability. This Ability doubles its weight, affecting the amount of damage done to it when a move such as Low Kick is used, but also allows it to do more damage when using Heavy Slam.
Bronzor gain the opportunity to evolve into Bronzong starting at Level 33.
Bronzor is in the Mineral Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Bronzor One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Bronzor takes on the appearance of a blue hexagon-shaped being with two eyes in its center on its front side. There's a pattern on its back side.
Bronzor is a genderless Pokémon species, so the only way for it to breed would be with a Ditto.

Trading Card Game
Bronzor is listed as a Common Card in the Mysterious Treasures, Majestic Dawn, Stormfront, Arceus, Triumphant, and Next Destinies sets. A second Bronzor is listed as an Uncommon Card in the Arceus set.
Saturn and Mars of Team Galactic have both used a Bronzor in a couple of different episodes. Byron also used a Bronzor during the episode Dealing With Defensive Types, which was Ash's Gym Battle against Byron. Bronzor put up a good fight but was defeated by Chimchar.
Bronzor's Manga information is unknown as of writing.
Bronzor is in the Little Cup (LC) tier of competitive batling. Bronzor has access to both Stealth Rock and Recycle, which allows for it to be a resilient entry hazard setter that can heal itself up with Berry Juice numerous times. It has great bulk and Levitate, which gives it a nice Ground immunity. However, Bronzor suffers immensely from its weakness to Knock Off, a very common move. It has terrible offensive stats and a limited offensive movepool that does not include Explosion, leaving it unable to deal with both Defog and Rapid Spin users that can dispose of Stealth Rock easily.
Bronzor is also a viable option in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. Its viability fares a lot better in NU than it does in the LC tier due to the number of threats it can check. Thanks to its great typing, high bulk bolstered by Eviolite, and Levitate, Bronzor can check many common Pokémon such as Jynx, Mesprit, Musharna, Tauros, Steelix, and Rhydon. It can support its team with Stealth Rock, and its ability to check so many threats makes it a valuable teammate on stall and balanced teams. However, Bronzor suffers greatly in its offensive prowess, having to rely on Psywave and Toxic to deal damage. It is incredibly weak to a number of Fire and Dark-types like Pyroar, Skuntank, and Malamar, with the latter two being an especially bad matchup due to Bronzor being unable to cripple them in any way. Bronzor is also forced to use Rest in order to heal up, which can make it a sitting duck. It is crippled by Knock Off, which takes away its Eviolite and makes it much more vulnerable to being taken out. Bronzor's passive nature also puts it in an incredibly bad position against Taunt users.
