Boldore (Japanese: ガントル Gantoru) is a Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Boldore is a large, bulky boulder-like Pokémon that resembles a geode and a golem. Its craggy body is mostly dark blue in color. It has red crystals on its back and front, and a spine that extends between two yellow holes it uses as eyes. It and it's evolutions/pre-evolutions share a resemblance to the Nosepass family and the Geodude family. Despite contrary belief, it does not float.

Evolution

Boldore is the evolved form of Roggenrola as of level 25. It then evolves into Gigalith via trade.

When it overflows with power, the orange crystal on its body glows. It looks for underground water in caves.

Sun
Its orange crystal is a mass of energy. Just one crystal fragment would provide enough fuel for a hundred dump trucks.
Moon
It explores caves in search of underground water. It's not comfortable around water, so this Pokémon takes great care in lapping it up.
Ultra Sun
The energy overflowing from its body has turned into orange crystals that are hard enough to smash diamonds.
Ultra Moon
Its orange crystals are lumps of powerful energy. They’re valuable, so Boldore is sometimes targeted for them.
