Gigalith (Japanese: ギガイアス Gigaiasu) is a Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Gigalith is a massive boulder-like Pokémon that resembles a golem and a stalagmite. Its entire body is made of deep bluish gray rock. It has bright red crystals protruding from all over its body. On its face, two sharp crystals protrude from the sides of its mouth like tusks. Its four limbs are bulky and powerfully-built. It has fierce-looking deep-set yellow and red eyes.

Behavior

Gigalith usually inhabit underground areas. It is able to absorb and contain solar rays within its energy core. The energy stored within Gigalith is released as a strong energy blast. The blast of energy is extremely powerful, which often results in deep gashes forming all over Gigalith's body.

Although it is able to use this ability to obliterate an entire mountain, Gigalith is unable to do so in rainy weather or during the night.

Because of its immense strength and sturdy body, Gigalith is popular among construction workers.

Evolution

Gigalith is the evolved form of Boldore by trade. Gigalith is the final evolution of Roggenrola.

Trivia

  • Gigalith was first seen along with Reuniclus and Gothitelle on Oha Suta on June 28, 2010. Later it was seen in battle against Blitzle, Darmanitan and Drilbur. On the Oha Suta episode of July 22, 2010, it was then revealed to be called Gigaiasu. It was later shown in detail at the Pokémon BW: Search for a Legend tour on August 7, 2010. It was also appeared on the September issue of Coro Coro on August 9, 2010. The Romanization of the name Gigaiasu was later revealed to be Gigalith.
  • Gigalith is the only pure third stage Rock-type.
  • Gigalith shares some similarities with Golem:
    • Both are part of a three-stage evolutionary line and evolve from their middle stage through trade.
    • Both are Rock-type although Gigalith is single-typed while Golem is dual-typed (part Ground as a Kantonian Golem and part Electric as an Alolan Golem).
    • Both are in the Mineral Egg Group.

Origin

Gigalith is likely based on a boulder-like golem, mixed with traits of a stalagmite and a geode.

Etymology

Gigalith's name may have been derived from ギガス Gigas, a term used to describe a race of chthonic (Earth-associated) giants, and the word "monolith", a large single upright block of stone.
