Rolycoly (タンドン Tandon) is a Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

Biology

Rolycoly resembles a floating coal with a single orange eye attached to its head. Four rocky bulges stick out of Rolycoly's sides. A larger circular piece of rock attached to Rolycoly resembles a wheel.

Behavior

Rolycoly uses its eye to illuminate the dark caverns it inhabits. The large piece of coal attached to Rolycoly's underside allows for better maneuverability over the roughest of terrains.

In times past, the entire population of families living in the Galar region would use pieces of coal dropped by Rolycoly as a heat source for cooking food and keeping houses warm. Even today, people would bring along Rolycoly during outdoor activities.

Special Abilities

Rolycoly has access to the unique ability Steam Engine, which increases Rolycoly's speed stat if hit by a Fire or Water-type attack.

It also has Heatproof, an ability that was originally exclusive to both Bronzor and Bronzong, which makes it take less damage from Fire-type attacks.
