==Trivia==
* AsBronzong bothdoes ofnot thishave Pokémon'sany Abilities are used at the same timeweaknesses in the [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness]], and [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky]], due to both of its {{Abilities}} being used simultaneously, along with it wasn'tnot yet being weak to {{t|Ghost}} and {{type|Dark}} moves at the time, Bronzong does not have any weaknesses in these games.
* When a Bronzong blinks or falls asleep in Gen V, its "eyes" turn white.
* [[PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond]]'s PokéPad entry describes a male Bronzong, despite Bronzong being genderless.
* Bronzong is the only Pokémon able to learn {{m|Rain Dance}} by leveling up that cannot learn any moves or have any [[Ability|Abilities]] that benefit from {{Weather|rain}}. This may be related to its Pokédex entries, several of which mention Bronzong's natural power to summon rain clouds.
