Magnemite (Japanese: コイル Koiru) is an Electric/Steel-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. Prior to Generation II, Magnemite was pure Electric-type.

Biology

Physiology

Magnemite has light-blue steel body in the shape of a sphere which is kept bound together with the two screws and one large screw at the top of its head. It has one big eye that is as big as the magnets it uses; which can launch electric attacks. On the side of its body are two horseshoe magnets which expel antigravity, allowing it to float in mid-air.

Behavior

Magnemite emit electromagnetic energy from its horseshoe magnets in order to keep afloat. It consumes electricity by attaching itself to power lines. During power outages, people would often find large groups of Magnemites congregating inside of circuit breakers. If a Magnemite runs low on its electrical energy supply, it would be rendered incapable of flight.

Natural abilities

Magnemite can have the ability Magnet Pull or the ability Sturdy. Magnet Pull prevents any Steel-type Pokémon from escaping or switching out. Sturdy protects Magnemite from OHKO moves. The units at its sides generate electromagnetic waves that keep it airborne. It also feeds on electricity.

Evolution

Magnemite evolves into Magneton at level 30.

Sapphire
Magnemite floats in the air by emitting electromagnetic waves from the units at its sides. These waves block gravity. This Pokémon becomes incapable of flight if its internal electrical supply is depleted.
Emerald
The units at its sides are extremely powerful magnets. They generate enough magnetism to draw in iron objects from over 300 feet away.
FireRed
It moves while constantly hovering. It discharges Thunder Wave and so on from the units at its sides.
LeafGreen
Uses antigravity to stay suspended. Appears without warning and uses Thunder Wave and similar moves.

Sun
They gather in places where electricity is available. They can be found clinging to the steel towers used to support power lines.
Moon
It sends out electromagnetic waves, which let it float through the air. Touching it while it's eating electricity will give you a full-body shock.
Ultra Sun
It’s frequently the cause of power outages, which is why some power plants send out electrical signals that it can’t stand.
Ultra Moon
Perhaps because electrical lines are often buried these days, the number of Magnemite attacks on power plants has increased.

Trivia

  • Starting with the Johto Region, Magnemite is one of only two Pokémon to have had their types changed, being as how Steel was introduced when Gold and Silver where released.
  • There is a villain in the anime Astro Boy that goes by the same name.
  • Its original name was Coil and Magneton's Recoil.
  • After the introduction of the Steel-type, Magnemite, its evolutions, and Togedemaru are the only Electric/Steel Pokémon.
    • Also, Magnemite and its evolved forms are the only Electric/Steel-types to be based on machines as Togedemaru is based on a mammal.
  • Magnemite and its evolved forms share some similarities and differences with the Beldum and Klink evolutionary line.
    • All three evolutionary lines are based on mechanical objects: The Magnemite evolutionary line is based on magnets, the Beldum evolutionary line is based on robots and supercomputers, and the Klink evolutionary line is based on gears.
    • Stat-wise, the Magnemite evolutionary line is leaned towards the Special Attack spectrum while the Beldum and Klink evolutionary lines are leaned towards the Physical Attack spectrum.
  • Magnemite has its own song on the Japanese Pokemon Youtube Channel. It can be seen here.
  • In Generation I, Magnemite was a counterpart to Voltorb. Both were pure Electric-type Pokémon that spawned in similar locations. They both evolved at Level 30 and were based off of inanimate objects. Both also debuted in Red & Blue and were also both genderless. Ever since the introduction of the Steel-type and Magnezone, the main similarities were broken.

Etymology

  • Magnemite is a play on words of magnet and mite.
