Steelix Pokémon | Evolution, Weakness, Moveset, Stats, And More!


Steelix or in Japanese, Haganeil is a dual-type Steel/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation II. Evolution of Steelix happens from Onix when traded holding a Metal Coat and in the process it acquires a specific Moveset, Stats, Usefulness, Weakness among others like every Pokemon.

Steelix is a long, serpentine Pokémon with a silvery-grey body made up of rock-like sections that can possess fights and tunnelling chips and scrapes. Two of those pieces have large spikes of rock emerging from each side of them. It has a massive head composed mainly of its large, wide jaw with inside sets of large square teeth. There are ridges along its lower jaw: on a male Steelix, there are two pairs of ridges whereas on a female there is only one pair. Several small, square lumps cover its lower jaw underneath. The eye sockets are extremely deep, and the eyes are dark. His head has two large ridges that extend from his eyes to his head’s tip. The tip of its tail is conical with a blunt tip.

Like Mega Steelix, her body is becoming bigger, almost double its length, and adding more features. The eyes of Mega Steelix turn blue, and its lower jaw becomes heavier armoured with a curved, round shape. In addition, on its bottom lip, the third pair of ridges emerges, as well as two smooth, flat structures consisting of three joint projections on either foot. The grey, rock-like spikes and their tail-point have become prism-like crystalline spikes; the segments from which the spikes protrude are also much larger. Smaller versions sit located between the head and actual spiked pieces, each decorated with a black dot on either hand of a blue hexagon.

The cells within its body, crystallized by Mega Steelix strength that came through the Evolution, are tougher than any stone and capable of withstanding any temperature. It travels very slowly, but it is still impervious to injury through its reinforced frame and it swings without flinching at enemies.

The evolution of Steelix is said to have been the result of the composition of an Onix having become more diamond-like after living for about 100 years.

How Useful Is My Steelix?

In Pokemon Go, Steelix can be seen as a fantastic wall for gyms, due to the multitude of fantastic dragon style generalists used to knock down gyms. If you use it as a quick move with Dragon Tail (although you don’t benefit from STAB), you’ll likely force them to switch.

Well, do you think that the Steelix Evolution can suffice your needs in the game after going through its weakness, Moveset, stats and more? If yes then you should run down to the Pokemon official page for Steelix Evolution!

But if still, you think that you may find some better Moveset, stats and less unhealthy weakness with the help of evolution other than of Steelix, then Herald Journalism has information stocked for that purpose.
