Unaffected by item negating effects (such as Embargo and Klutz). Item manipulating effects (such as Trick and Fling) cannot give Steelix a Steelixite or remove a Steelixite from Steelix.

Outside of battle

If held by a Steelix, allows it to Mega Evolve into Mega Steelix when it performs a Spectacular Talent during a Pokémon Contest Spectacular while its Trainer has a Key Stone. Steelix will remain a Mega Steelix until the Talent Round ends.

Pokémon holding Steelixite in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire cannot be traded to Pokémon X and Y.

A Steelixite worn by Brock's Steelix appeared in When Regions Collide!, where Brock used it to Mega Evolve Steelix during his battle with Kiawe. The Steelixite didn't appear equipped on Steelix, but rather, it appeared on its head right before Mega Evolving.
