Mineral (Egg Group)

No change in size, 11:11, 1 April 2012
The '''Mineral eggEgg group''' (Japanese: '''こうぶつ''' ''Mineral'') is one of the fifteen [[eggEgg group]]s.
This group is comprised mostly of {{type2|Rock}} and {{type2|Steel}} Pokémon. The common characteristic shared by this group are Pokémon of an inorganic nature, specifically taking on a rocky, crystalline or metallic appearance, hence the name, Mineral.
In this eggEgg group, most of its members are genderless, and can only breed with {{egg|Ditto}}. This makes for a limited pool of moves that can be passed down among the few members of the group that can pass and inherit eggEgg moves. As of [[Generation V]], the members that can breed was increased from five to eleven families, making breeding slightly easier.
