Minor appearances
Magnemite is a seemingly robotic life formPokémon that has a gray, spherical metal body with blue-and-red tipped horseshoe magnets on each side and a single, large eye. It has three {{wp|Phillips head}} screws on its body: two near the bottom of its body, and the otherone on top of its head andthat looks similar to an antenna. The two bottom screws serve no noticeable purpose, although they may be its feet as the Pokédex identifies a footprint similar to that of the screw's head. Even though Magnemite and its evolved forms are mechanical creatures, [[EP101|the anime has shown]] that it has emotions and a way of reproducing. [[EP195|It has even exhibited]] the need to eat, although its main form of nutrients is electrical currents. It is commonly found in locations such as {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Rough-terrain Pokémon|power plants or caves}} with a strong magnetic field. Despite its modern, artificial appearance, [[Media:Neo Premium File 2.jpg|Magnemite has been depicted in carvings]] discovered at the [[Ruins of Alph]], and has been present in [[AZ]]'s retelling of the Kalos war, indicating it has existed for at least 3,000 years.
The magnetic units on Magnemite's body create electromagnetic waves that allow it to defy gravity and can potentially disrupt electrical equipment. Magnemite is not known to be unnecessarily aggressive, but may approach Trainers with little notice.

Magnemite can be attracted to anything emitting electricity or a magnetic field, including gadgets such as a [[Pokétch]]. [[EP030|It has even been shown]] to be attracted to electric Pokémon producing such fields. With modern electrical lines buried underground, Magnemite attacks on power plants have increased. To prevent power outages, these power plants deliberately send out signals Magnemite cannot stand to ward them off.

* In the [[Pokémon Red and Green beta|Pokémon Red and Blue beta]], Magnemite was originally known as "Coil", from its Japanese name.
* Magnemite, along with its evolution {{p|Magneton}}, were pure Electric-type Pokémon in Generation I, but became dual-type {{2t|Electric|Steel}} in Generation II. This makes them the first Pokémon to ever change typing with the progress of generations.
* Magnemite is the first Steel-type Pokémon in [[National Pokédex]] order.
* Despite most of Magnemite's Pokédex entries saying they are able to float through the air by employing powerful electromagnetic waves or even anti-gravity, Magnemite does not have the Ability {{a|Levitate}}, so it is still affected by {{type|Ground}} moves. However, starting in [[Generation IV]], Magnemite can learn {{m|Magnet Rise}}, which simulates Levitate for five turns.
* Magnemite, along with {{p|Magneton}}, has [[List of Pokémon that appear in every regional Pokédex|appeared in every regional Pokédex]]. This is due to the Sinnoh Pokédex's expansion in Platinum and the Unova Pokédex's expansion in Black 2 and White 2.
