Mega Steelix

Mega Steelix is one of the best dual-type Pokemon. It is Steel/Ground-type pokémon. This pokémon is introduced in Generation two. Also, Mega Steelix is referred to as ‘Iron Snake Pokémon’. The iron-bodied Pokemon, Mega Steelix is really a strong evolution, and its Moveset, Stats, and other features speak well for that purpose, and being a dual-type it has quite an advantage against the number of pokemon types it has a weakness against.

Steelix is a giant, serpentine Pokémon with a silvery-gray body formed of rock-like sections, which can and have chips and scrapes through fights and tunneling.

Steelix and Mega Steelix look similar but with some extra partitions in Mega Steelix. As Mega Steelix, the body increases two times and attains more features. The lower jaw enhances with more heavily armored with a round, curved structure, and the eyes shifts to blue color. Furthermore,a third pair of ridges are seen on its lower jaw, along with two sharp, flat structures possessing of three conjoined projections on every side. The gray, rock-like spikes and its tail point have altered into prism-like crystalline spikes; the sections from which the spikes project are much bigger as well. In-between the head and individual spiked sections are tiny units, now furnished by a black spot with a blue hexagon on all sides. The metallic-looking scrapes, which rotate around its neck are adjusted to their positions according to Steelix movements when fighting. Generally, it is found in mountains and caves.

How Much Useful Is My Mega Steelix?

The cells of the body that this pokémon is made off are crystallized by the energy produced from Mega Evolution, are stronger, and can be able to bear any temperature. Even though it moves very slow, its strong body is impermeable to damage and thrashes the foes with fast movements and reflexes. It can dig up to six-tenths of a mile underground which is way more than Onix.  Also, this pokémon has the capability to dig even towards the Earth’s core.

Dragon Tail and Earthquake are the best combo moveset of Mega Steelix when attacking Pokémon in Gyms while it has a weakness against Fighting, Fire, Ground, Water-type Pokémon because Steelix deals a total of 160 percent of damage from these types of attacks.

So, does the Moveset, weakness, and other information seem worthy of Mega Steelix Evolution? Then right away head to Mega Steelix Evolution.

And if the case is otherwise then you may like to see some other Pokemon Evolution rather than the one for Mega Steelix and can see for whatever Moveset, weakness, and other specification suits better. Visit Herald Journalism for that!
