Magnezone resembles a U.F.O. with two spherical formations protruding from each side of its body. Three horseshoe-shaped magnets also are attached to Magnezone's body. Magnezone also has two screws sticking out from its two spherical formations and a yellow antenna on top of its head. In the center of Magnezone's body is a red-colored circle that functions as a third "eye".
Magnezone gains the abilities Magnet Pull, Sturdy, and Analytic, which are shared with its pre-evolved forms. Magnet Pull prevents any Steel-type Pokémon from switching out or escaping from battle. Sturdy allows Magnezone to survive any damaging attack if its HP is full, except for any attack that hits multiple times. Analytic allows Magnezone to gain a slight boost in its damaging moves if it is slower than the opposing Pokémon.
Magnezone's evolution is a result of Magneton being exposed to an unique magnetic field. It is able to produce electromagnetic energy from each of its three magnets.
Both are based on inanimate objects related to the concept of electromagnetism (Magnezone is based on a magnet while Probopass is based on a compass).
Both were introduced in Generation IV.
Both require an area with a unique magnetic field in order to evolve from their pre-evolved forms (Mt. Coronet in Gen. IV, Chargestone Cave in Gen. V, and the Kalos Power Plant and New Mauville in Gen. VI).
