Anime

Main articles: Brock's Steelix, Jasmine's Steelix (anime), and Byron's Steelix (anime)

Brock's Steelix is one of Brock's Pokémon and his father, Flint caught as an Onix in Kanto. It evolved into Steelix and was discovered in Battle Frontier series. Steelix, when is was still an Onix, was given to Brock's younger brother, Forrest.

In the Sun & Moon series, Brock's Steelix can Mega Evolve into Mega Steelix. During the Gym battle between Brock and Kiawe, after the latter removed his vest and shirt, revealed a necklace with a Key Stone serves as a pendant. Steelix was able to withstand all of Turtonator's Fire-Type attacks including its Z-Move, Inferno Overdrive, despite being super effective damage. Mega Steelix quickly defeated it using its powerful Stone Edge, while Turtonator used its Dragon Tail to disperse its powerful attack, but failed.

Olivine City Gym leader Jasmine also owned a Steelix. In the Diamond and Pearl series, it was followed by Canalave City Gym leader and Roark's father, Byron also owns a Steelix as it shares its powerful Screech ability with Roark's Onix.

Manga

Trivia

  • Mega Steelix is the longest Steel-type and Ground-type Pokémon.
  • Steelix is the heaviest of the Generation II Pokémon.
  • Steelix has the highest base Defense out of all Steel and Ground types.
  • Steelix is the only non-Rock type Pokémon that can learn Rock Polish.
    • Strangely, both of them are part of a 2-stage Evolutionary Line that isn't affected by a certain type (Electric and Ground respectively).
      • Also, their evolved forms aren't affected by 2 types (Electric-type and Poison-type for Steelix and Ground-type and Fairy-type for Altaria).
  • So far, every Steelix in the anime, excluding background cameos, has used Iron Tail.

Origin

Steelix is likely based on a snake and/or an earthworm. It may also be based on the sandworms from the Dune series or possibly a visual pun on/reference to Solid Snake, the protagonist of Konami's Metal Gear series.

Etymology

Steelix is a portmanteau of "steel" and Onix.

Haganēru is a portmanteau of 鋼 (hagane, steel) and "nail" (often made of metal).
