Magnezone (Japanese: ジバコイル Jibacoil) is an Electric/Steel-type Pokémon.

Biology

Magnezone is the evolution of Magneton, and has an appearance similar to that of a UFO. Magneton evolves from exposure to a unique magnetic field, which can only be found inside Mt. Coronet in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. This causes a mutation in the Magneton; one of the Magnemite that this Pokémon consists of has grown bigger than the other two; its pupil has dilated and turned red; and the screw on top appears to have been replaced by a yellow antenna upon evolution. The remaining Magnemite form the "shoulders" of Magnezone, and the screws on the top of their head have grown significantly larger. They also appear to have lost one magnet each. Magnezone has three horse-shoe magnets. Two are positioned in a fashion that resembles a pair of claws, and a third is positioned as a tail. Its body is surrounded by a thin metal rim. It is approximately three times heavier than Magneton. The body has a silver color like Magnezone's pre-evolved forms.

Physiology

Magnezone is the result of Magneton evolving in the presence a special magnetic field that has only been discovered at Mt. Coronet. One of the Magnemite that this Pokémon consists of has grown bigger and more oval-shaped than the other two upon evolution. The middle Magnemite also has a red pupil in its eye instead of a black one and a yellow antenna on top of it. Magnezone as a whole is a darker color grey than its pre-evolutions, surrounded by a thin, metal rim and two dark-gray horse-shoe magnets that are positioned to look like metal claws. There is also a third horse-shoe magnet on the back of the middle Magnemite that is positioned like a tail. Unlike Magnemite and Magneton, Magnezone has been recognized as an Electric/Steel-type Pokémon ever since it was discovered. Even though Magnezone and its pre-evolutions are mechanical creatures, they still have emotions, the need to eat, and some way of reproducing. Magnezone could possibly be related to Metagross, who is also a half Steel-type Pokémon that floats by using electromagnetic waves.

Gender differences

Magnezone is genderless.

Special abilities

Magnezone can mostly the same moves that Magnemite and Magneton can learn, except that its attacks are stronger than Magnemite and Magneton's. Magnezone is also the only member of its evolutionary line that can learn Barrier and Mirror Coat.

Behavior

Habitat

Magnezone can be found living in power plants, but they're much rarer than either Magnemite or Magneton. Sometimes, Magnezone take up permanent residence at Mt. Coronet.

Trivia

Origin

Magnezone bears a resemblance to a flying saucer.

Name origin

Magnezone is derived from a shortening and portmanteau of magnetic zone, an alternative name for a magnetic field. The Jiba part of Jibacoil's name is from 磁場 jiba, the Japanese word for magnetic field, and the coil part refers to an electro-magnetic coil.
