Pokédex entries

  • Gold

    The shell on its back is just skin that has cooled and hardened. It breaks easily with a slight touch.

  • Silver

    Its brittle shell occasionally spouts intense flames that circulate throughout its body.

  • Crystal

    Its body is as hot as lava and is always billowing. Flames will occasionally burst from its shell.

  • Ruby

    Magcargo's shell is actually its skin that hardened as a result of cooling. Its shell is very brittle and fragile - just touching it causes it to crumble apart. This Pokémon returns to its original size by dipping itself in magma.

  • Sapphire

    Magcargo's body temperature is approximately 18,000 degrees F. Water is vaporized on contact. If this Pokémon is caught in the rain, the raindrops instantly turn into steam, cloaking the area in a thick fog.

Trivia

  • Magcargo is the only Rock-type Pokémon that has a pre-evolution that isn't a Rock-type.
  • Magcargo's body temperature (18,000 °F) is higher than that of the sun's surface (9,940 °F).

Origin

Magcargo is based on a snail, with its shell being made of igneous rock and its body being made of lava/magma.

Etymology

Magcargo and Magukarugo are portmanteaus of "magma," "cargo" (goods being carried in a vehicle for delivery, referring to its shell), and "escargot" (French for "snail," especially when cooked and served as food).
