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.

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 appears to be an emotionless Pokémon, and instead seems to be affected more by solar energy. It simply floats to transport itself and will attack if necessary. However, it is still capable of reading the minds of others.

Habitat

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

This Pokémon receives all its energy from the sun, alleviating the need to consume other foods.
