Magby (Japanese: ブビィ Buby) is a Fire-type baby Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Magmar starting at level 30, which evolves into Magmortar when traded while holding a Magmarizer.

Biology

Magby is a bipedal Pokémon that has a red body with a yellow, flame-shaped marking on its stomach. Its head is covered with large lumps, and it has a rounded, yellow beak. There is a single spike on its back and it has a tapered tail. Its short arms have three clawed fingers, while its feet have only two clawed toes.

Magby can breathe 1100 °F (600 °C) flames, and hot embers drip from its mouth. Its health can be determined by these flames; yellow flames show that a Magby is in good health, while flames mixed with a lot of smoke is symptomatic of fatigue, and flames dripping from its nose is a sign of a cold. Magby's volcanic habitat ensures its health. However, it can be seen living in towns. Magby is known to be rather small and timid. It leaks out flames when excited or surprised. It prefers to soak in the magma of volcano in order to recover from the day's fatigue.

Trivia

  • Magby has the lowest possible maximum Performance in any given stat of any Pokémon, only capable of reaching 3 stars in any of its five stats.
  • Magby and Elekid can be considered counterparts. Both are Baby Pokémon introduced in Generation II who evolve starting at Level 30 and whose evolved forms evolve via trading with an item containing the suffix "-izer" . Both have the same gender ratio (75% male, 25% female), and both are typically exclusive to one version of a pair of games. They both have similar status-inducing Abilities in Flame Body and Static, as well as the same Hidden Ability, Vital Spirit. They also learn moves at the same level that have equal chances of causing a status condition.

Origin

Magby seems to be a combination of a booby or duck with a mythical salamander. The spike on its back gives it a resemblance to a baby iguana.

Name origin

Magby is a combination of magma (intrusive molten rock) and baby or booby.

Buby may be a combination of booby (a type of sea bird) and baby.
