Does the symbol on the back of Bronzor/Bronzong have any special meaning? (Check the "Forms" section of the Pokédex. There's some kind of 5-leaf branch symbol on their backs.) --DarkfireTaimatsu 05:41, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

I don't know the name of the legend/fairy tale, but I know it's what the two pokemon are based off of. A large bell broke and the village collected mirrors(made of bronze back then) to melt down and fix the bell. One woman was greedy and lied about the mirror, then died or something and her mirror was cursed. When they tried to melt her mirror it wouldn't melt (heatproof explained. I think the symbol on the back was also important in the tale. If anyone could find the correct/full version of this story, it would help shed some light. --Eleking 05:07, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

Aged Bronze?

It just me or does the shiny version look like and aged bronze version

  • They just coloured him green, they probably were running out of ideas this stage, they made a bronze plate a pokemon. they just coloured him green. I really wish they made more shinies with desirable colours like Blaziken, where he was darkened a tad and got white hair.--Madheroesfan 12:23, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Ichinomiya flag?

I found this: 200px-Flag_of_Ichinomiya%2C_Aichi.svg.png

on wikipedia a little bit ago and automatically thought it looks like bronzor.If you conect the dots on bronzors face to its nose(or whatever that ball on it's face is) you get the design in the middle of the flag.just wondering if it should be included in the origin section.-Darkmaster0 01:54, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

that flag has 5 balls, bronzor has 6 --TiTAn 12:31, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Weakness'

I believe that bronzong and bronzor are the only pokémon with only one weakness (due to the two weakness' and the abilities(Heatproof or Levitate) they have getting rid of either their Fire or Ground weakness). can I put this in the trivia --TiTAn 23:19, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

All single-type Electric Pokémon have just one weakness: Ground. —darklordtrom 03:25, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
my mistake then --TiTAn 12:31, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Trivia

"Bronzor and its evolution are the only Pokémon with the ability Levitate that can have another ability, Heatproof." Should it's Hidden Ability be added to this bit of trivia? Questioner 17:29, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Back

Why is there a tree? Because it's a plate? ...anyway, it looks like the plant badge... -- Pringles 21:20, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

Origin Story

A few years ago, Eleking was talking about an old legend that Bronzor might have been based off. It seems to be this: http://www.sacred-texts.com/shi/kwaidan/kwai07.htm - It explains the plant on the back (the Sho-Chiku-Bai relief that allowed the woman to recognize her mirror), it having Heatproof, and it evolving into a Bell.
