Solrock (Japanese: ソルロック Solrock) is a dual-type Rock/Psychic Pokémon. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Solrock come with the ability Levitate, which gives the user immunity to Template:Type2 moves.

Biology

Physiology

Solrock is a Pokémon that originally came from space. They originally came to earth within meteorites and have since adapted to life on earth quite nicely. Being an inorganic Pokémon, it isn't preyed upon, nor does it need to prey on others, as it derives all its energy from sunlight. It uses telekinesis to float in mid-air and is capable of reading the thoughts of other lifeforms like most psychic types. It is even capable of brainwashing, but only does this when it feels threatened and is usually a last resort. It is also capable of generating its own heat to create fire.

Gender differences

Solrock is genderless.

Special abilities

As it thrives upon solar energy, it emits bright light during battle, as well as heat waves whenever it rotates. This solar power it contains allows it to learn moves like Fire Spin naturally, as well as being able to learn other Fire moves by TM, such as Flamethrower and Overheat. Its psychic powers allow it to read the minds of others.

Behavior

Solrock is an emotionless Pokémon, and instead seems to be affected more by solar energy. It simply floats to transport itself and will attack if necessary.

Tate's Solrock and Liza's Lunatone

Solrock first appeared in Take the Lombre Home. A group of people blamed a wild Solrock for a drought in their village, when it was actually Team Rocket stealing their water. The Solrock redeemed its reputation when it helped to get rid of Team Rocket.

Solrock appeared again under the ownership of Tate in It's Still Rocket Roll to Me and Solid as a Solrock.

Brandon used his Solrock in a battle against Ash in Pace - The Final Frontier.
