This Pokémon has a rock for a head, no nose, and two long arms that start with a bulging muscle and end with rock hands resembling a human's.
Geodude can have the ability Rock Head or the ability Sturdy. Rock Head prevents Geodude from suffering recoil damage from using attacks like Double-Edge. Sturdy causes all OHKO moves to be negated. Geodude most frequently are found in fields and on mountains. People step or trip on them from time to time, mistaking them for rocks. Its arms are so strong that it can use them to climb mountains. Rhyperior sometimes accidentally shoot Geodude from their cannon-like arms.
