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.

During the past 100 years, Rolycoly helped provide warmth for families living in Galar. Even in modern times, Rolycoly was used for camping outdoors.

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.

Trivia

  • Rolycoly shares its species name with Torkoal. They are both known as the Coal Pokémon.
  • Rolycoly is similar to both Geodude and Roggenrola as all three are Rock-type Pokemon based on living rock (Rolycoly is based on a lump of coal, while Geodude is based on a boulder and Roggenrola is based on a geode). However, unlike Geodude, Rolycoly is a pure Rock-type just like Roggenrola.

Origin

Rolycoly may be based on a coal-ore or cooled magma rocks. It also has some characteristics of a one-wheeled vehicle, such as the circular coal ore attached to Rolycoly's underside.

Etymology

Rolycoly comes from roly-poly and coal.
