Geodude (Japanese: イシツブテ Isitsubute) is a dual-type Rock/Ground Pokémon.

It evolves into Graveler starting at level 25, who evolves into Golem via trade.

Biology

Physiology

Geodude is a gray boulder with bulging rocky eyebrows, brown irises, and muscular five-fingered arms. It levitates, though is not unaffected from attacks from the ground.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

It has a hard head and a sturdy body. Throwing rocks is a common type of offense by Geodude. As Geodude is also a Ground-type, it can use moves like Earthquake. Geodude also possesses the ability to explode.

Behavior

Geodude usually sit still on mountain paths or in caves, which is why they are often mistaken for rocks. Geodude uses its arms to steadily climb steep mountain paths, hoisting itself over. Geodude also uses its arms to swing its fists around when angered, such as when it is carelessly stepped upon. Geodude are proud of their sturdy bodies and bash against each other in a contest of sorts to prove whose body is harder. When Geodude sleeps deeply, it buries itself halfway into the ground, and will not awaken even if it is stepped upon. In the morning Geodude rolls downhill in search of food.

Habitat

Geodude can be most often found on mountain trails, fields, under rocks, or in caves. They are a common sight in Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh.

Geodude and its evolved forms were the loyal subjects of King Onix in Hooked on Onix.

Roark used his Geodude against Paul in Shapes of Things to Come and Ash in O'er the Rampardos we Watched.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
AG016 Geodude May's Pokédex Geodude, the Rock Pokémon. Geodude has incredibly high defensive power, making it virtually resistant to any physical attacks.
This concludes the entries from the Advanced Generation series.
Episode Pokémon Source Entry
DP015 Geodude Dawn's Pokédex Geodude, the Rock Pokémon. Geodude is often found on mountain roads with half of its body buried in the ground so it can observe mountain travelers.
This concludes the entries from the Diamond & Pearl series.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

Geodude makes cameos in the Red, Green & Blue chapter in Onix is On! standing next to Brock, suggesting that he is its owner and in Raging Rhydon as a wild Pokémon.

Brock is seen with no less than eight Geodude on the jacket of Volume 8. The Geodude octet is later seen in Volume 14, attempting to halt the Magnet Train with a combined Magnitude.

In the TCG

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Geodude is the final Poké Float to appear. As the Unown float around the top half of the screen, Geodude floats across the bottom with its arms outstretched, providing a solid base for fighting. After it leaves the screen, there will be no Poké Floats on the screen for a few seconds, before Squirtle pops up and restarts the cycle.

Game data

Pokédex entries

This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation I.
Generation I
Red Found in fields and mountains. Mistaking them for boulders, people often step or trip on them.
Blue
Yellow Commonly found near mountain trails, etc. If you step on one by accident, it gets angry.
Stadium When traveling uphill, if it encounters a raised step, it cleverly hoists itself up and over using its two arms.
Generation II
Gold Most people may not notice, but a closer look should reveal that there are many Geodude around.
Silver It uses its arms to steadily climb steep mountain paths. It swings its fists around if angered.
Crystal Proud of their sturdy bodies, they bash against each other in a contest to prove whose is harder.
Stadium 2 Most people may not notice, but a closer look should reveal that there are many Geodude around.
Generation III
Ruby The longer a Geodude lives, the more its edges are chipped and worn away, making it more rounded in appearance. However, this Pokémon's heart will remain hard, craggy, and rough always.
Sapphire When Geodude sleeps deeply, it buries itself halfway into the ground. It will not awaken even if hikers step on it unwittingly. In the morning, this Pokémon rolls downhill in search of food.
Emerald It climbs mountain paths using only the power of its arms. Because they look just like boulders lining paths, hikers may step on them without noticing.
FireRed Its round form makes it easy to pick up. Some people have used them to hurl at each other in a snowball fight.
LeafGreen Found in fields and mountains. Mistaking them for boulders, people often step or trip on them.
Generation IV
Diamond Many live on mountain trails and remain half buried while keeping an eye on climbers.
Pearl It is impossible to distinguish from rocks. It slams against others in contests of hardness.
Platinum At rest, it looks just like a rock. Carelessly stepping on it will make it swing its fists angrily.
HeartGold Most people may not notice, but a closer look should reveal that there are many Geodude around.
SoulSilver It uses its arms to steadily climb steep mountain paths. It swings its fists around if angered.
