Magcargo at Wikibooks Pokédex

Magcargo (Magcargo マグカルゴ Magukarugo in Japan, Magcargo in Germany and Volcaropod in France) is the Lava Pokémon, and its type is Fire/Rock. Magcargo was first introduced in Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver, as Pokémon #219 in the national Pokédex ordering. Magcargo looks like a snail made out of magma with a rocky shell on its back, hence the rock type. This dual type gives Magcargo an undesirable quadruple weakness to Water and Ground type attacks. It is an evolved form of Slugma, which evolves at level 38 and does not have a Rock type. Magcargo belongs to the Amorphous egg group.

The name "Magcargo" comes from the words "magma" and "escargot" (French for "snail"). It may also refer to the fact that Magcargo has "cargo" in the shape of rocks on it's back, which it continuously lugs around. Magma is molten rock located beneath the surface of the Earth (or any other rocky planet), and which often collects in a magma chamber. ...

Biology

The "shell" on Magcargo's back is actually magma which has cooled and hardened into brittle molten rock, which crumbles relatively easily. Through the cracks in the rock, spouts of intense fire occasionally burst out from Magcargo's circulatory system. Its circulatory system apparently uses fire instead of blood, which is likely, as Magcargo's body temperature reaches 18,000 degrees fahrenheit. Fahrenheit is a temperature scale named after the German physicist Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686–1736), who proposed it in 1724. ...


It recuperates by dipping its body in extremely hot magma inside volcanoes and under the ground.


When small amounts of water make contact with its body, the water is vaporized instantly. Steam rises from its body as water hits its skin; in the rain, Magcargo can be seen shrouded in steam.


In the video games

In Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal, Magcargo cannot be found in the wild. However, Slugma can be found during the day along Route 16 and Route 18. In Sapphire, Ruby, FireRed, and LeafGreen, Magcargo cannot be found in the wild either. However, Slugma can be found in the Fiery Pass (Sapphire, Ruby) or Mount Ember on One Island (FireRed, LeafGreen).
