Genesect(ゲノセクト Genosect) is a Bug/Steel-typeGeneration VMythical Pokémon. Genesect was an ancient Pokémon that was revived and heavily experimented on by Team Plasma, turning it into a robotic creature with a cannon on its back. However, N abandoned the project saying that any Pokémon altered by science is "impure." The scientist working on the project, angered by N's decision, quit Team Plasma, created a lab, and continued altering Genesect until it escaped and was never seen again. Genesect's "signature move," Techno Blast, is altered by Hold Items called Drives that can change its type. The four drives are the Burn Drive, Douse Drive, Shock Drive and Chill Drive, and make the move's type Fire, Water, Electric, and Ice, respectively.
Genesect could mean genesis bug (since it is one of the first Pokémon World terrestrial) or "genetic" (genetic), with English word "insect" (insect in Castilian) due to its bug type.
Genesect has a purple metal body with a head that looks like a saucer. It has two red eyes and on its back there is some sort of powerful cannon that could have been added onto it by Team Plasma when they made the modifications to it.
