Magnemite is a seemingly robotic life form that has a gray, spherical metal body with horseshoe magnets on each side and a single, large eye. It has three {{wp|Phillips head}} screws on its body: two near the bottom of its body, and the other on top of its head and looks similar to an antenna. The two bottom screws serve no noticeable purpose, although they may be its feet as the Pokédex identifies a footprint similar to that of the screw's head. Even though Magnemite and its evolved forms are mechanical creatures, [[EP101|the anime has shown]] that it has emotions and a way of reproducing. [[EP195|It has even exhibited]] the need to eat, although its main form of nutrients is electrical currents. It is commonly found in locations such as {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Rough-terrain Pokémon|power plants or caves}} with a strong magnetic field. Despite its modern, artificial appearance, [[Media:Neo Premium File 2.jpg|Magnemite has been depicted in carvings]] discovered at the [[Ruins of Alph]], and has been present in [[AZ]]'s retelling of the Kalos war, indicating it has existed for at least 3,000 years.

Magnemite is a seemingly robotic Pokémon that has a gray, spherical metal body with blue-and-red tipped horseshoe magnets on each side and a single, large eye. It has three {{wp|Phillips head}} screws on its body: two near the bottom of its body and the one on top of its head that looks similar to an antenna. The two bottom screws serve no noticeable purpose, although they may be its feet as the Pokédex identifies a footprint similar to that of the screw's head.

The magnetic units on Magnemite's body create electromagnetic waves that allow it to defy gravity and can potentially disrupt electrical equipment. Magnemite is not known to be unnecessarily aggressive, but may approach Trainers with little notice. It can be attracted to anything emitting electricity or a magnetic field, including gadgets such as a [[Pokétch]]. With modern electrical lines buried underground, Magnemite attacks on power plants have increased. To prevent power outages, these power plants deliberately spit out signals Magnemite cannot stand to ward them off. [[EP030|It has even been shown]] to be attracted to electric Pokémon producing such fields. In the care of a Trainer, it can be a devoted fighter. However, [[EP195|it has been demonstrated that]] it may be deterred unless a strong bond is formed with its Trainer. If a wild Magnemite is approached, [[Escape#Wild Pokémon|it may simply flee]] on rare occasions, as Magnemite do not care for interaction. However, if attacked, it will start retaliation with non-damaging moves.

Magnemite debuted in ''[[EP030|Sparks Fly for Magnemite]]''. {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} were in [[Gringey City]] while the power went out. When they were looking around for the cause of the power outage, a lone Magnemite showed up and was attracted to [[Ash's Pikachu]], who had a cold. When a group of {{p|Grimer}} and its {{AP|Muk}} leader were chasing Ash and his friends, a group of Magnemite and {{p|Magneton}} helped fight them off.

Magnemite (Japanese: コイル Coil) is a dual-type Electric/Steel Pokémon introduced in Generation I. Prior to Generation II, it was a pure Electric-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Magneton starting at level 30, which evolves into Magnezone when leveled up in a special magnetic field.

Biology

Magnemite is a seemingly robotic Pokémon that has a gray, spherical metal body with blue-and-red tipped horseshoe magnets on each side and a single, large eye. It has three Phillips head screws on its body: two near the bottom of its body and the one on top of its head that looks similar to an antenna. The two bottom screws serve no noticeable purpose, although they may be its feet as the Pokédex identifies a footprint similar to that of the screw's head. Even though Magnemite and its evolved forms are mechanical creatures, the anime has shown that it has emotions and a way of reproducing. It has even exhibited the need to eat, although its main form of nutrients is electrical currents. It is commonly found in locations such as power plants or caves with a strong magnetic field. Despite its modern, artificial appearance, Magnemite has been depicted in carvings discovered at the Ruins of Alph and has been present in AZ's retelling of the Kalos war, indicating it has existed for at least 3,000 years.

The magnetic units on Magnemite's body create electromagnetic waves that allow it to defy gravity and can potentially disrupt electrical equipment. Magnemite is not known to be unnecessarily aggressive, but may approach Trainers with little notice. If a wild Magnemite is approached, it may simply flee on rare occasions, as Magnemite does not care for interaction. However, if attacked, it will start retaliation with non-damaging moves. In the care of a Trainer, it can be a devoted fighter. However, it has been demonstrated that it may be deterred unless a strong bond is formed with its Trainer.

Magnemite can be attracted to anything emitting electricity or a magnetic field, including gadgets such as a Pokétch. It has even been shown to be attracted to electric Pokémon producing such fields. With modern electrical lines buried underground, Magnemite attacks on power plants have increased. To prevent power outages, these power plants deliberately send out signals Magnemite cannot stand to ward them off.

In the anime

In the main series

Major appearances

Magnemite debuted in Sparks Fly for Magnemite. Ash and his friends were in Gringey City while the power went out. When they were looking around for the cause of the power outage, a lone Magnemite showed up and was attracted to Ash's Pikachu, who had a cold. When a group of Grimer and its Muk leader were chasing Ash and his friends, a group of Magnemite and Magneton helped fight them off.

Multiple Magnemite appeared in Get Along, Little Pokémon, under the ownership of Ethan. He used them to harness electrical energy from bolts of lightning during thunderstorms, with this energy being given to towns without power. One of the Magnemite, nicknamed Number 6, evolved into a Magneton to save Ash and Pikachu from Team Rocket.

Three Magnemite appeared in The Poké Spokesman, under the ownership of a group of phony Pokémon interpreters. They were convinced by Simon to cease their attacks on a Pokémon Center.

Ten Magnemite appeared in Current Events, where they served as security guards for an electric company's power station. They first attacked Team Rocket, who had sneaked into the power station. Later on, Ash saw the door had been opened by someone, and upon investigation, he was also attacked by the Magnemite.

A Magnemite debuted in Fight for the Light!, under the ownership of Jasmine. It was seen riding on Jasmine's shoulder through the whole episode. Magnemite was later used in her Gym battle with Ash in Nerves of Steelix!; it battled Pikachu, who was able to defeat Magnemite with Quick Attack.

Yellow It is born with the ability to defy gravity. It floats in air on powerful electromagnetic waves.
Stadium Appears as if out of nowhere. It floats using anti-gravity and discharges electricity from two side-mounted units.
Generation II Johto
#118
Gold It is attracted by electromagnetic waves. It may approach trainers if they are using their Pokégear.
Silver The units at the sides of its body generate anti-gravity energy to keep it aloft in the air.
Crystal The electricity emitted by the units on each side of its body cause it to become a strong magnet.
Stadium 2 It is attracted by electromagnetic waves. It may approach trainers if they are using their Pokégear.
Generation III Hoenn

Kanto
#081
Ruby Magnemite attaches itself to power lines to feed on electricity. If your house has a power outage, check your circuit breakers. You may find a large number of this Pokémon clinging to the breaker box.
Sapphire Magnemite floats in the air by emitting electromagnetic waves from the units at its sides. These waves block gravity. This Pokémon becomes incapable of flight if its internal electrical supply is depleted.
Emerald The units at its sides are extremely powerful magnets. They generate enough magnetism to draw in iron objects from over 300 feet away.
FireRed It moves while constantly hovering. It discharges Thunder Wave and so on from the units at its sides.
LeafGreen Uses antigravity to stay suspended. Appears without warning and uses Thunder Wave and similar moves.
Generation IV Sinnoh

Alola
USUM: #054
Kanto
#081
Sun They gather in places where electricity is available. They can be found clinging to the steel towers used to support power lines.
Moon It sends out electromagnetic waves, which let it float through the air. Touching it while it's eating electricity will give you a full-body shock.
Ultra Sun It's frequently the cause of power outages, which is why some power plants send out electrical signals that it can't stand.
Ultra Moon Perhaps because electrical lines are often buried these days, the number of Magnemite attacks on power plants has increased.
Let's Go Pikachu It is hatched with the ability to defy gravity. It floats while emitting powerful electromagnetic waves.
Let's Go Eevee

Trivia

  • In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Magnemite was originally known as "Coil", from its Japanese name.
  • Magnemite, along with its evolution Magneton, were pure Electric-type Pokémon in Generation I, but became dual-type Electric/Steel in Generation II. This makes them the first Pokémon to ever change typing with the progress of generations.
  • Despite most of Magnemite's Pokédex entries saying they are able to float through the air by employing powerful electromagnetic waves or even anti-gravity, Magnemite does not have the Ability Levitate, so it is still affected by Ground-type moves. However, starting in Generation IV, Magnemite can learn Magnet Rise, which simulates Levitate for five turns.
  • Magnemite, along with Magneton, has appeared in every regional Pokédex. This is due to the Sinnoh Pokédex's expansion in Platinum and the Unova Pokédex's expansion in Black 2 and White 2.
  • Magnemite and its evolution Magneton are two of the few Pokémon that had their cry changed slightly in Generation III. This was due to Generation III utilizing a better sound effects game engine and newer game system.
  • Pokémon Snap is the only form of a Pokémon canon that shows two Magnemite bonding, similar to a Magneton. However, when a picture is taken, they are still called Magnemite.
  • In Generation V, Magnemite was the most traded Pokémon on the GTS. This is probably due to what is known as the Magnemite chain/coil: a scheme by which players could increase the number of visitors to their Join Avenue in Black 2 and White 2 by trading Magnemite on the GTS. The scheme originated with Japanese players and became popular worldwide.
  • On May 31, 2017, The Pokémon Company posted a Magnemite-themed music video onto their YouTube channel titled Where is Coil? Here is Coil!.

Origin

Magnemite seems to be based on a magnet. It may also be based on the objectification of electromagnetism, one of the four fundamental interactions of nature.

Name origin

Magnemite may be a play on magnetite. It may also be a combination of magnet or magnetite and mite, referring to its small size.

Coil is literally coil, perhaps referring to the fact that a coil with electric current generates a magnetic field.
