How Does the Pokémon Magneton Evolve?


Quick Answer

To evolve the Pokémon Magneton into Magnezone, level up in Magnetic Field areas in the game, specifically Mt. Coronet or Chargestone Cave. Magneton itself will evolve from the Pokémon Magnemite once it reaches level 30. Leveling up Magneton to Magnezone only became possible in the Generation IV Pokémon games and later, starting with the games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.

Full Answer

Magneton was introduced in Generation I Pokémon games as an Electric type Pokémon and became an Electric/Steel type Pokémon when the Generation II Pokémon games were launched. Also known as the "Magnet Pokémon," its special abilities include Magnet Pull and Sturdy, with Analytic as its hidden ability.

The ability Magnet Pull prevents a Pokémon that is being battled against from fleeing or switching. If Magneton or Magnezone is the lead party Pokémon, the Magnet Pull will still be in effect for the other Pokémon in the party. Sturdy, on the other hand, negates one-hit knockout moves, and Analytic boosts its attack by 30 percent.

The following are the simple steps in evolving Magneton into Magnezone:

  1. Join Magneton

    The player must have Magneton in his party once he reaches either Mt. Coronet or Chargestone Cave in the game.

  2. Level up

    Level up Magneton by using it to battle wild Pokémon in the area. Once it levels up, it will automatically evolve into Magnezone.
