Gigalith (Japanese: ギガイアス Gigaiath) is a Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Boldore when traded. It is the final form of Roggenrola.

Contents

Biology

Gigalith is a blue quadruped Pokémon, with various spiny, crystal-like red features jutting out of its body. Its limbs have gray joints and are topped with red crystalline features, with the two claws on each limb being similar features. It has a red eye inside each ear. Several of the crystalline features are present on its face; three below its eyes, one in the middle resembling a crest, and other crystals to the sides of its head.

It compresses energy in the core inside its body that is enough to blow away mountains. It can also store sunlight in its orange crystals and shoot powerful energy from its mouth, though it loses this ability at night or during rain. It lives in caves and tunnels deep underground. Gigalith is a popular partner for construction workers.

Major appearances

Gigalith debuted in Ash Versus the Champion!, where it was rampaging around a town. Alder managed to stop it with his bare hands, and then, he found out that the reason for Gigalith's rampage was a nail that had gotten stuck in the bottom of one of its feet.

Minor appearances

In Strong Strategy Steals the Show!, Kenton used a Gigalith during the fourth round of the Vertress Conference and battled Cameron's Riolu, but it lost.

In Genesect and the Legend Awakened, a Gigalith was living at Pokémon Hills.
