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 the four One-Hit KO Moves and prevents it from being KO'd in one hit if its HP is at its maximum. A third Ability is available to Magnezone from the Dream World, the Analytic Ability. When using this Ability, if it goes last on a turn, the power of its Attacks increase by 30%.

Magneton takes on a saucer-shaped appearance with three domes: one primary dome and two smaller domes on the sides of the main dome. Each dome has one eye on its front, with the larger of the eyes being in the center. Two magnets are on the front of it, while a third magnet is on its back side.
A yellow antenna is on the top of the main dome, while two bolts are towards the top of the side domes.
Magneton is a Genderless Pokémon species.
The only way to obtain a Magnezone in Diamond, Pearl, Platinum and White is to evolve a Magneton, while trading is required to obtain a Magnezone in Heart Gold, Soul Silver and Black. Magnezone can be found in the wild at the P2 Lab in Black 2 and White 2.

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.
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.
Zero would use a Magnezone in Giratina and the Sky Warrior, the only film that Magnezone has appeared in as of writing.
Magnezone's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
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.

Magnezone cannot learn any moves by way of Breeding as it is a Genderless Pokémon.
