Beldum (Japanese: ダンバル Dumbber) is a dual-type Steel/Psychic Pokémon.

It evolves into Metang starting at level 20, which evolves into Metagross starting at level 45.

Biology

Physiology

Beldum is a robotic lifeform that has a long body with a set of claws sticking out of its rear end. It has one large eye, which consits of red pupils and black irises, in the center of its nearly-round head, for some unknown reason there is a hole near it's eyer, which is set into a ball-and-socket joint at its front end. It has a short crest above its head, projecting from its body. Even though Beldum and its evolved forms are mechanical creatures, they still have emotions, the need to eat and a way of reproducing. Beldum has been said to be related to Magnemite due to the fact that both of them are partially Steel-type, create electromagnetic waves to float in the air, and probably due to the fact that they evolve in a similar fashion; it takes two Beldum to evolve into a Metang and two Metang to evolve into a Metagross.

Gender differences

Beldum is a genderless species.

Special abilities

Beldum's body is magnetized, and it uses magnetism to move, communicate, and control its attacks. It is said to be related to Magnemite, but Beldum's magnetism focuses on Psychic moves instead of Electric moves. Beldum's skills in battle are extremely limited as it is only capable of using Take Down without special tutoring.

Behavior

Beldum sometimes gather in swarms, communicating with each other telepathically.

Habitat

Beldum are scarce in the wild, but they do tend to inhabit areas with rugged terrain. Also, when they sleep, they anchor themselves to a cliff using their hooks.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
AG118 Beldum May's Pokédex Beldum, the Iron Ball Pokémon. Beldum floats by emitting magnetic waves from its body to repel the Earth's magnetic field. They launch their claws into cliffs where they sleep.
This concludes the entries from the Advanced Generation series.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Pokémon Adventures, Steven owns a large amount of Beldum that serve, along with a Metang and Metagross, as miners that help him unearth rare stones in various caves around Hoenn. These same Beldum were called upon to defeat the Mawile herd in Granite Cave when both Ruby and Steven were attacked by them.

Trivia

  • Beldum's number in the Hoenn Pokédex and the Fiore Browser are the same: 190.
  • Beldum, along with its evolved forms, are the only non-legendary Pokémon to have a catch rate of 3, which is the lowest possible. In Generation III, this low catch rate would never take effect, unless the player is cheating or encountering a Ditto that transforms into Beldum. However, in Generation IV, wild Beldum can be encountered during swarms on Route 228.
  • Up until Pokémon Platinum, Beldum could not learn any move except Take Down and incidentally could not damage Ghost-type Pokémon outside of Struggle.
  • Despite depictions of Beldum levitating in the anime and Pokédex entries noting that they are able to float through the air by employing powerful electromagnetic waves, Beldum does not have the Ability Levitate. However, as of Generation IV, Beldum's evolution Metang can learn Magnet Rise which simulates Levitate for a short period of time.
  • Beldum's evolutionary family evolves into their next-stage forms the earliest of all the pseudo-legendary Pokémon—Beldum into Metang at level 20, and Metang into Metagross at level 45.
  • Beldum is the only member of a pseudo-legendary Pokémon evolutionary line that only learns one move by level up.

Origin

Beldum seems to be a magnetic robot based on a dumbbell. It also bears a partial resemblance to a bullet, which suits its jet-like flying ability and single move. It also resembles a limb of a Metang or Metagross, a reference to how it evolves.

Name origin

Beldum and Dumbber are derived from dumbbell, a small weight used in weight training.
