Geodude (Japanese: イシツブテ Isitsubute) is a dual-type Rock/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves into Graveler starting at level 25, which evolves into Golem when traded or when exposed to a Linking Cord.

In Alola, Geodude has a dual-type Rock/Electric regional form. It evolves into Alolan Graveler starting at level 25, which evolves into Alolan Golem when traded. These Geodude can also be found in Blueberry Academy's Terarium.

(Refer to Game data→Evolution data for more details.)

Biology

Geodude is a brownish-gray boulder Pokémon. It has bulging, rocky eyebrows, trapezoidal eyes with brown pupils, and a wide mouth. Its arms are muscular with five-fingered hands. Geodude uses its arms to climb steadily up steep mountain paths. As a result of their physical appearance, Rhyperior sometimes mistake this Pokémon for actual boulders and fire them through their hands.

Geodude is proud of its sturdy body and will bash against others of its kind in a contest of sorts to prove whose body is harder. It will even go as far as to compare itself with other species such as Roggenrola and Carbink. The longer it lives, the more chipped and worn its body becomes. Long-lived Geodude are completely smooth and round and they have a calm demeanor. However, Geodude's heart remains rugged and tough, no matter what. Geodude can be most often found on mountain trails and fields, with a scholar counting about 100 of them on just one route. It will sit still in these areas, which is why it is often mistaken for a rock. It is often stepped on and will sometimes swing its arms in anger when this occurs. When Geodude sleeps deeply, it buries itself halfway into the ground. Once buried, it will not awaken even if someone steps on it. In the morning, Geodude rolls downhill in search of food.

Forms

Geodude has a regional form: Alolan Geodude.

In the Alola region, Geodude is made from a magnetic rock with a more silvery appearance. There are areas on Alolan Geodude's body that are especially magnetic and attract iron sand, creating the appearance of black eyebrows and strands of short black hair. Its fingers are fused together, leaving only the thumb and index finger free. Stepping on Alolan Geodude results in an electrical shock and sometimes an angry headbutt. Like regular Geodude, it competes with others by bashing their bodies together. The iron sand sticks to the one with stronger magnetism. The Alolan Golem will fire these Geodude from its back if real rocks are absent. They can also be found in the Canyon Biome of Blueberry Academy's Terarium, where Alola's island life is simulated.

Alolan Geodude and its evolved forms are the only known Pokémon that can have Galvanize as an Ability.

Evolution

Geodude evolves into Graveler, which evolves into Golem.

Alolan Geodude has a dual-type Rock/Electric regional form. It evolves into Alolan Graveler, which evolves into Alolan Golem.

Trivia

Origin

Geodude is based on a living rock or boulder, and thus it may be based on a earth elemental creature like golem.

Alolan Geodude seems to have dark structures made of piezoelectric crystals or magnetite, a subset of iron ore known for its black crystalline appearance and magnetic properties. This iron ore takes shape of Geodude's eyebrows. Its Electric type may also be a pun on thundereggs.

Name origin

Geodude is a combination of geo- (prefix for earth) and dude (slang word for a male person).[2] It may also involve geode (hollow rock with crystals lined inside).

Isitsubute is a combination of 石 ishi (stone) and 礫 tsubute (throwing stones).[3]

  3. PokéQuiz: The correct answer’s Ishitsubute! I-shee-tsu-bu-te! “Ishi” means rock, and “tsubute” is like a throwing stone. Don’t try to throw a Geodude, though, because you will probably get hurt!
