Bronzor is a flat, circular, blue-green Pokémon. Six dark blue spheres bulge from its rim. It has two round, yellow eyes and a large nose-like sphere surrounded by four small circles in its center. A crest resembling an herb or branch is on its back. This crest is said to possess a mysterious power. It was first seen in ancient tombs; objects resembling this Pokémon have been found in tombs as well. Scientists believe Bronzor used to be reflective, and have tried x-raying its body. The x-rays revealed nothing of its structure, however.
Bronzor appears in Honey for Combee, as one of Mars's Pokémon. She used it to attack the manager of the Valley Windworks and hold him hostage. When he managed to use his Drifloon to call for help, she tried to have her Zubat bite him in the neck. After growing bored as she always does, she had it use Sandstorm and left with an electricity-generating wind turbine.
If Bronzor is turned upside-down, it will look exactly the same from the front, meaning its front has rotational symmetry. It also has horizontal and vertical reflective symmetry. However, its back sprite only has vertical reflective symmetry.
There is an unused sprite within Pokémon Diamond and Pearl for Bronzor's back sprite which is just a duplicate of its front sprite.
Bronzor and the fact that it evolves into Bronzong also seems to be based on an old Japanese myth present in the book Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things by Lafcadio Hearn. The priests of Mugenyama wanted to forge a bell for their temple, so they asked the local women to donate their bronze mirrors for this purpose. A woman contributed her mirror, but later regretted it. Because of her repentance, the mirror wouldn't melt in the furnace until she killed herself. Before her suicide, she said that whoever would break the bell would be given great wealth by her ghost. A multitude of people tried to break the bell by ringing it furiously, so the tired priests rolled it down a hill into a swamp in frustration.
Bronzor is a combination of bronze and mirror.
Dohmirror is a combination of 銅鏡 dōkyō (bronze mirror) and mirror.
