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


Boldore is a Rock-type Pokémon that appears mostly blue. 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.


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