As of Sword and Shield, this is no longer the case.
* 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.
* 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.-->
* Magnemite and its evolution Magneton are two of the few Pokémon that had their [[cry]] changed slightly in [[Generation III]]. This was due to Generation III utilizing a better sound effects game engine and [[Game Boy Advance|newer game system]].
* {{g|Snap}} is the only form of a Pokémon canon that shows two Magnemite bonding, similar to a Magneton. However, when a picture is taken, they are still called Magnemite.
