Magneton (Japanese: レアコイル Rarecoil) is an Electric/Steel-type Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Magneton is the result of three Magnemites being linked together by a strong magnetic force, although a single Magnemite can evolve by itself when no other Magnemites are in vicinity. There are several ways that the three Magnemites that Magneton consists of can be linked together in. Magneton was originally thought to be a pure Electric-type Pokémon, but it was eventually discovered to have traits of a Steel-type Pokémon as well. Even though Magneton, its pre-evolution and its evolution are all mechanical creatures, they share traits with non-mechanical creatures: Magneton are able to feel emotions, get hungry, and reproduce. Magneton has been considered to be related to Metang and Bronzong since both are also half Steel-type Pokémon that floats by using electromagnetic waves.

Gender differences

This Pokémon is genderless.

Special abilities

Magneton emits strange radio waves that can greatly damage various electronic equipment, raise air temperatures by 3.6 degrees Farenheit within a 3,300-foot radius and cause earaches to anyone that gets to close to it. Magneton mostly learns attacks that Magnemite is capable of learning. However, unlike Magnemite, Magneton can learn Tri Attack. Even though Magneton is not yet fully evolved, it can learn Hyper Beam and Giga Impact. On very rare occasions, Magneton can know Refresh.

Behavior

Habitat

Magneton usually live in power plants, but they're harder to find than Magnemite. On rare occasions, groups of Magneton migrate to Mt. Coronet so they can evolve.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Magneton feed off of electrical charges.

In the anime

Magnetons attacked the Pokémon Center in The Poké-Spokes Person.

Jackson used a Shiny Magneton against Ash during the Silver Conference in Tie One On!.

Wattson used a Magneton in his brief Gym Battle with Ash in Watt's with Wattson?.

In All Torkoal, No Play!, Magneton was one of the Steel-typed Pokémon in Steel Valley picking on a wild Torkoal.

Trivia

The original English name for Magneton was going to be "Recoil".

Origin

Magneton appears to be a magnetic robot.

Name origin

Magneton's name may be a combination of magnet and ton — indicating that it is larger than Magnemite. A magneton is also a unit of magnetic movement, and a magnetron forms the core of a microwave oven. The rare in Rarecoil may be a reference to the fact that some rare earth elements have interesting magnetic properties, or it may simply be alluding to the fact that it is rarer than Magnemite.
