Magnezone (Japanese: ジバコイル Jibacoil) is a dual-type Electric/Steel Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Magneton when leveled up in a special magnetic field (in Generation IV through Generation VII) or when exposed to a Thunder Stone (in Generation VIII). It is the final form of Magnemite.

Contents

Biology

Magnezone is the result of Magneton leveling up in the presence of a special magnetic field. The evolution is done on a molecular level, but despite this, scientists have failed at attempts to force it. Magnezone's body is wide and circular, similar to a disc or saucer, with a thin edge circling the diameter of its body. Its main eye is in the center, containing a large, red pupil. On each side of its body, it has a ball-shaped addition, with each side containing an eye, horseshoe magnet, and Phillips head screw. These secondary eyes can move independently of its main eye, as shown in Confronting the Darkness!. On top of its head is a tall, thin, yellow rod, closely resembling an antenna, which it uses for certain attacks. Behind its body is a third horseshoe magnet, positioned like a tail.

Magnezone's evolution is theorized to have been caused by a special magnetic field that changed the molecular structure within its body. Magnezone is a seemingly-mechanical, genderless creature, but it has emotions, a way of reproducing, and the need for nourishment. With its magnets, it has the ability to control anti-gravity and float through the air at will. As seen in Giratina and the Sky Warrior and Phantom Thief Pokémon 7, Magnezone's anti-gravity is strong enough to carry humans with ease. Magnezone is rarely seen in the wild, but as seen in the anime, Magnezone can be very aggressive and territorial. However, it will rarely attack unless provoked. It flies through the night sky, often mistaken for a UFO sighting, though it seems to be receiving and sending signals from an unknown source and an unknown purpose. This leads some people to believe that Magnezone came from outer space and that it is being controlled by unknown beings.

Major appearances

Magnezone debuted in Giratina and the Sky Warrior, under the ownership of Zero. Despite Zero's maniacal behavior, Magnezone was very loyal to him. Magnezone generally acted as a leader to Zero's army of Magnemite and Magneton.

A wild Magnezone appeared in Regaining the Home Advantage!, which also served as the species' main series debut; it battled nonstop with a Metagross. These two Pokémon normally battled with each other on a regular basis until their "battle arena", a deep crater, was filled up with water. Because their crater was no longer usable, they took their battle to the streets of a nearby town, and continued fighting, causing much collateral damage.

In Secrets From Out of the Fog!, Meowth, Colress and Team Rivalry!, and Ash and N: A Clash of Ideals!, Barret often relied on a Magnezone for battling situations.

In Confronting the Darkness!, Belmondo used a Magnezone to battle Clemont and his Luxray, but it was soon defeated.

Minor appearances

A Magnezone appeared in the ending credits of Zoroark: Master of Illusions', under the ownership of a Pokémon Baccer World Cup participant.

In The Future Is Now, Thanks to Determination!, six Magnezone fell under the control of Team Rocket.

In Racing to a Big Event!, Anna used a Magnezone to give her an aerial view of the Pokémon Pancake Race. In Mounting an Electrifying Charge!, it was used to fly around the arena during the Charjabug race.

A Magnezone appeared in I Choose You!.

In JN028, Team Rocket pulled a Magnezone from the Rocket Prize Master. Jessie used it to battle Ash and Goh, but they ended up blasting off.

Trophy information

"A Magnet Area Pokémon. It's a Magneton that evolved in a special magnetic field at Mt. Coronet. Its appearance is quite different after it evolves, but it still has three round eyes. Its shape changes but not its type--it's still both an Electric and Steel type. It learns Magnet Rise, a technique that temporarily nullifies Ground-type attacks, a traditional weakness."

Trivia

  • As there is no strongly electromagnetic location in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, it is impossible to evolve Magneton into a Magnezone in these games. The same applies for Probopass, Leafeon, and Glaceon. All have to be traded from Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum to be obtained.
    • Despite this, Gym Leaders Jasmine and Lt. Surge, who respectively used Magnemite and Magneton in their Gym battles, inexplicably appear to have evolved them to Magnezone in their rematches.
  • The colors on the ends of Magnezone's magnets can turn on and off at will, as seen in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series and the 3D Pokémon games.
  • In Pokémon Battle Revolution and later games, if Magnezone falls asleep, its central "eye" remains open. However, the outer eyes close.
  • In the September 2013 Pokémon Direct, Magnezone was mistakenly labeled as a female Pokémon, when it should be genderless. It was later corrected on the official website.
  • Despite most depictions of Magnezone showing they are able to float through the air, Magnezone does not have the Ability Levitate, so it is still affected by Ground-type moves. However, Magnezone can learn Magnet Rise, which simulates Levitate for five turns.
  • Magnezone (along with Probopass, Leafeon, and Glaceon) is one of four Pokemon in Pokemon GO that must be evolved while the player is within range of a Pokestop outfitted with a Lure Module (in this case, a Magnetic Lure Module)

Origin

Magnezone appears to be based on the concept of a fused Magneton; one of the Magnemite taking a larger form and the remaining two Magnemite taking the forms of the smaller bodies on each side. The Magnemite evolution line seem to be based on the objectification of electromagnetism, one of the four fundamental interactions of nature. Magnezone in particular is possibly based on electromagnetic forming caused by electromagnetic fields and combined with an objectification in the form of a flying saucer or a UFO.

Name origin

Magnezone is a shortening and combination of magnetic zone, an alternative name for a magnetic field.

Jibacoil is a combination of 磁場 jiba (magnetic field) and coil (referring to an electromagnetic coil).
