This Magneton is an electric/steel-type Pokémon owned by Wattson.


Magneton was used in a gym battle against Ash Ketchum, after Voltorb has been defeated. Although it launched a powerful Zap Cannon, Magneton was no match for Pikachu because Pikachu was charged-up by a Mecha-Raikou and defeated Magneton with Thunder.[1]

While fishing out for a Whiscash, Nero, who stole his Badge Case, Ash recalled battling Wattson and his Magneton.[2]
