Magnemite (Japanese: コイル Koiru) is an Electric/Steel-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.


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.

Special 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.
