Coalossal (セキタンザン Sekitanzan) is a rock/fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII. It evolves from Carkol at level 34 and is the final form of Rolycoly. It can also Gigantamax into Gigantamax Coalossal.

Biology

Physiology

Coalossal is a large, bipedal Pokémon. Its entire body is covered with a rock-like material. It has three fingers and toes at each of its stubby arms and feet. A pile of rocks resembling a volcano with flowing lava erects on its back.It has spiked elbows and a head resembling a cow catcher on a train. It has 2 sharply angled eyes with black pupils that turn red when attacking.

Its Gigantamax form is noticeably bigger with the 3 red clouds swirling overhead. Its body now has 3 spots resembling a stone oven and its eyes are now permanently red.

Behavior

While a peaceful Pokémon, Coalossal is very protective of the mines it inhabits and will not tolerate anyone who damages them. If it sees anyone who would do such actions, Coalossal will incinerate the offenders with intense flames that can reach over 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit.

During battle, Coalossal releases sparks from its coal heap that can scorch the surrounding areas.

Once it Gigantamaxes, Coalossal is capable of generating flames that can burn more than 3,600 degrees Fahrenheit; the flames themselves are fueled by Gigantamax energy. During a terrible snowstorm, Gigantamax Coalossal helped save the many lives of people living in Galar by providing warmth.

Abilities

In line with its coal theme, it has access to Flame Body and Flash Fire (its hidden ability). Like its pre-evolved forms, it has the signature Steam Engine ability which boosts its speed when hit by a fire or water Attack.

Signature Moves

Coalossal has its own signature move in the form of Tar Shot, which makes its target weaker to Fire upon its first use and lowers its speed.

Its G-Max Move, G-Max Volcalith, deals 1/6 of chip damage on any non rock type Pokémon For 4 turns.

Trivia

  • Coalossal shares its category with its pre-evolved forms and Torkoal. They are all known as the Coal Pokémon.
  • Its Pokédex entry mentions the United Kingdom Cold Wave from the early 1980s.
  • It may be carrying anthracite,since its French name contains that word.
  • Its Gigantamax is probably the Counterpart of Lapras as Coalossal's Gigantamax only appears in Sword while Lapras' only appears in Shield. They are also used by Gordie and Melony respectively.

Origin

Coalossal is based on a living pile of coal (or perhaps the entire mine itself) with some elements of a rock golem. It also somewhat resembles a dinosaur. Coalossal has some elements of a steam locomotive, such as a pilot for the face plate and shoulder spikes that resemble smoke stacks.

Gigantamax Coalossal is based on a stove oven.

Etymology

Coalossal is a combination of "coal" and "colossal".

Sekitanzan may be a combination of 石炭 "sekitan" (coal) and 炭山 "tanzan" (mountain coal mine).
