Steelix (ハガネール - Haganei) is the 208th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Steel/Ground Type.
Steelix can have one of two abilities: Rock Head, which prevents this Pokémon from receiving recoil damage from recoil-causing moves; or Sturdy, which gives this Pokémon an immunity from falling to a One-Hit KO move such as Fissure or Horn Drill, and starting with Generation V, Pokémon with Sturdy cannot be KO'd in one hit when it has full HP. Steelix that come from the Dream World have the ability Sheer Force, which gives moves that have a secondary effect a 33% increase in power, but those moves also lose their secondary effect.
Steelix is in the Mineral Egg Group, and will hatch after 6,400 steps. It will take an Steelix one million Experience Points to reach level 100.
Steelix takes the appearance of a ginormous metallic snake.
 Gender Differences
Male Steelix will have an extra front overbite tooth on its lower jaw, whereas the Female Steelix will only have the one overbiting tooth.
 Game Information
 Original Games
Steelix was introduced in Generation II, and the only way to obtain one in Generation 2 and Generation III was to evolve Onix. Generation IV would change that, as for the first time Steelix could be obtained in the wild. In Diamond and Pearl Steelix could be obtained at Iron Mountain, Snowpoint Temple, and Victory Road; and at Iron Island and Victory Road in Platinum.
In HeartGold and SoulSilver, Steelix can be found at Mt Silver and The Cliff Cave.
While Onix can be found at the lowest parts of Relic Castle in the Generation V games Black and White, at B6 and the Maze, the only way to obtain a Steelix would be to evolve Onix in Black and White.
 Spin-off Games
Steelix appears in Trozei at Endless Level 12, Pair Trozei, Forever Level 61 and Mr. Who's Den. In the first Dungeon game Steelix can be obtained by evolving Onix.
