Steelix (Japaneseハガネール Haganeil) is a dual-type Steel/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Onix when traded holding a Metal Coat. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Steelix using the Steelixite.

Biology

 

Steelix is a long, serpentine Pokémon with a silvery-gray body made up of rock-like sections, which can possess chips and scrapes from fights and tunneling. Three of those sections have long rock spikes coming out of them on either side. It has a massive head mainly made up of its large, wide jaw with sets of large square teeth inside. Along it bottom jaw are ridges: there are two pairs of ridges on a male Steelix, while there is only one pair on a female. Several small, square lumps cover the underside of its lower jaw. Its eye sockets are slightly deep set, and the eyes themselves are red. Its head has two long ridges going from the eyes up to the top of its head. The tip of its tail is conical with a blunt tip.

As Mega Steelix, its body becomes longer, almost doubles its mass, and gains more features. Mega Steelix's eyes turn blue and its lower jaw becomes more heavily armored with a round, curved shape. Additionally, a third pair of ridges appears on its bottom jaw, as well as two sharp, flat structures comprised of three conjoined projections on each side. The gray, rock-like spikes and its tail point have transformed into prism-like crystalline spikes; the segments from which the spikes protrude are much larger as well. In-between the head and individual spiked segments are smaller units, now adorned by a black spot with a blue hexagon on each side. Several metallic-looking scraps constantly rotate around its neck; these scraps react to Mega Steelix's movements and change position when attacking. The cells within its body, crystallized by the energy produced from Mega Evolution, are stronger than any mineral and able to withstand any temperature. It moves incredibly slowly, but its strengthened body is also impervious to damage, and it lashes out at foes without flinching. [1]

Steelix burrows underground and can be found in mountains or caves. It lives deep underground, and has been found as deep as six tenths of mile. It is capable of chewing through boulders with its powerful jaws, and its eyes are capable of seeing in the dark. Its body is made harder than diamond by the iron it ingests when it eats soil. It's further strengthened by the pressure and heat underground.

Steelix in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Jasmine's Steelix

In Pokémon AdventuresJasmine used a Steelix disguised as an Onix in the Gym Leader's Tournament of the opening ceremonies in the Pokémon League. Brock's Onix tightened its grip on the hidden steel Pokémon, but against the unusual hardiness of its evolution, it only hurt itself, and was eventually defeated after Steelix's stone "hide" scraped off and it was exposed. Jasmine explains that because it was a newly discovered species only so far uncovered by Crystal's capture, she tried to hide its identity in the hopes that it wouldn't be treated as simple eye candy for curious spectators.

A Steelix appeared in The Last Battle XIII as one of the Pokémon sent to help the fight in Ilex Forest.

Years later, Carr of the Team Rocket beast trio used one against Red's Poli as they clashed in the Sevii Islands. It was swung aside rather easily as it was interrupted in its rampage, and after a failed Iron Tail, it was beaten by a smart Mind Reader maneuver.

Another was on Iron Island and was used for training with Riley.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

Byron has two Steelix which were used in the challenge in which they served as walls to prevent Hareta from getting to the top in Challenge! The Fortress Of Steel!!.

Flint mentions having a Steelix in Hareta's Heart's Desire but it was never shown.

In the TCG

Main article: Steelix (TCG)

In the TFG

One Steelix figure has been released.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Steelix only appears as a random trophy.

Trophy information

A combination of Steel- and Ground-types, Steelix are the longest Pokémon yet to be discovered, reaching over 30 feet in length. Since they live so deep under the surface of the earth, the intense pressure has made their bodies stronger than diamonds. Evolved from Onix, Steelix is every bit as intimidating as its relative.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Steelix makes a cameo appearance in the Kalos Pokémon League stage. When the stage transitions to the Ironworks Chamber, it can be seen in the background along with ScizorKlinklang, and Honedge.

Trophy Information

NA: With a body harder than diamond, this Pokemon is well suited to digging, using its powerful jaws to tunnel around. Steelix lives deep underground - even deeper than its pre-evolution, Onix. Was it pride that made Steelix prove itself able to go farther? It's hard to say. We tried to dig around for clues, but we got tired after only 10 feet...

PAL: Being harder than diamond, Steelix can crush any rock with its jaw. It can also see in pitch darkness. Its territory lies deeper than its pre-evolution, Onix, a full 1000m below the surface. Does it consider its Onix brethren to be "below" it, even though they're higher up? It's hard to say. We may have to dig a little deeper into the matter.

Trivia

  • This means Mega Steelix has the highest Defense base stat and the highest single base stat of all Ground-type Pokémon, and is tied with Mega Aggron for highest Defense base stat and highest single base stat of all Steel-type Pokémon as well as the highest single base stat of all Mega Evolved Pokémon.
  • Steelix is shown floating above the ground in all console games, rather than, like its pre-evolved form, resting on the ground.
  • All Steelix in the anime have used the move Iron Tail (excluding cameos).
  • Steelix is the only Pokémon so far in the Pokémon Ranger games that can hurt the Capture Styler simply by touching the line.
  • Mega Steelix is the tallest Steel-type and Ground-type Pokémon.

Origin

Steelix, like Onix, is most likely based on a combination of a snake and earthworm. It may also been based on the wyrm, a type of dragon that has been presented as limbless and burrowing.

Name origin

Steelix is a combination of steel and onyx. It may also refer to helix (with regards to its serpentine body).

Haganeil may be a combination of 鋼 hagane (steel) and nail or tail.
