Magnezone (ジバコイル) is the 180th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is an Electric/Steel-Type, and is known as the Magnet Area Pokémon.

Magnezone can use one of two Abilities: Magnet Pull, which prevents opposing Steel-Type Pokémon from running away or switching out; or Sturdy, which gives it an immunity to One-Hit KO Moves and prevents it from being KO'd in one hit if its HP is at its maximum. Its Hidden Ability is Analytic, which increases the power of its moves by 30% if it moves last.

Magnemite can evolve into Magneton at Level 30, and can evolve into Magnezone if it Levels Up while at Mt. Coronet, Chargestone Cave, Route 13 (Kalos), New Mauville or Vast Poni Canyon.

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

Game Information

Original Games

In most games, the only way to obtain Magnezone is to evolve a Magneton, but must be traded to HeartGold, SoulSilver and Black. Magnezone can be found in the wild at the P2 Laboratory in Black 2 and White 2 in a shaking spot.

Spin-Off Games

Magnezone can be found at Sky Rift in Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness, and Sky Fissure in Explorers of Sky. The floor range is the same for both dungeons: B1-B15 & DPB1-B9. Magnezone is exclusive to Light Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Mystery Meadow 11F-19F and Legendary Mountains on the following floors: 26, 28 & 29, 31 &32, 34-40, 44 &45 and 47-49.

Magnezone can be found on the Cargo Ship in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia after defeating it in a Boss Battle at Haruba Desert. In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Magnezone appears in the main room on the Second Floor of the Oblivia Region's Sky Fortress in the Present, and in the Thunder Temple mission "A Shock Everywhere You Turn" by completing the mission with an S Rank.

Magnezone appears at Firebreathing Mountain Factory in Pokémon Rumble Blast after completing the game.

Trading Card Game

Magnezone is listed in the Diamond/Pearl Promo set and the Black Kyurem EX Battle Strength deck. Magnezone is listed as a Rare Card in the Diamond and Pearl and Stormfront (2) sets, and as an Ultra Rare Card in the Legends Awakened (Lv. X) and Triumphant sets.

Anime/Manga Information

A Wild Magnezone would cause problems in the episode Regaining the Home Advantage!. Its feud with a Metagross spilled out of a crater and into a nearby town, which caused some collateral damage.

Movies

Zero would use a Magnezone in Giratina and the Sky Warrior, the only film that Magnezone has appeared in as of writing.

Manga

Magnezone's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

In Generation VI, Magnezone resides in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. Magnezone's main role is to support offensive sweepers that cannot easily bypass Steel-types with its Magnet Pull ability that traps Steel-types and allows for Magnezone to take them out with a Hidden Power Fire or Thunderbolt. Magnezone can pull off a Choice Scarf set that puts it in a speed tier ahead of Steel-types like Jirachi, a Choice Specs set that can take out defensive Steel-types like Ferrothorn and Klefki with more ease than the Choice Scarf set, and a Magnet Rise set with Air Balloon that gives Magnezone the ability to trap and take out Excadrill. Magnezone's main flaw is its inability to be extremely useful in any other role than a Steel trapper, as it is slower than the majority of the tier, but it makes for a great supporter for Pokémon like Mega Pinsir who benefit greatly from annoying defensive Pokémon like Skarmory from walling them.
