Magcargo (Japanese: マグカルゴ Magcargot) is a Fire/Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.


Magcargo is a large, red Snail Pokémon. It appears to be made of magma. A noticeable thing about Magcargo is that it has a large rock on its back, which turned it into a Fire/Rock Pokémon. Magcargo tend to live in volcanoes.


Magcargo is the evolved form of Slugma. Slugma evolves into Magcargo at level 38.
