Biological characteristics

Nosepass is an odd, rocky, animate figurine vaguely in the shape of an Easter Island moai statue, but with black, shut eyes, rudimentary blocky limbs, and a huge red protrusion where its “nose” should be. It lives in caves and comes across as immobile because it is often found standing still in these environments. However, Nosepass displays behavior commonly associated with predatorial animals in the wild as well, hunting and feeding on prey that might be foolish enough to approach it. Its full body emits a powerful force of magnetism which it uses to pull its prey towards it like a tractor beam before feeding. This sense of magnetism is naturally bolstered in cold seasons. motto: ( Rapa Nui ) Also called Te Pito O Te Henua (Ombligo del mundo) (Navel of the world) Capital Hanga Roa Area  - City Proper  163. ... Rano Raraku Moai The only kneeled Moai Moai are statues carved from compressed volcanic ash on Rapa Nui, Easter Island, Chile. ... It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with magnet. ...


The nose of Nosepass is undoubtedly its most notable feature. It is the focal point of Nosepass’ magnetic nature, and this works to make Nosepass something of a living compass. When seen standing idly, it is consistently facing the North Pole as directed by its magnetic nose. Travelers who encounter this Pokémon can therefore actually use the placement of a Nosepass to check the direction of north and get their bearings. However, close observation has revealed that the Pokémon is affected by polar drift; With each passing year, Nosepass’ direction shifts slightly at a rate of 3/8 of an inch each year. Since all Nosepass have noses of the same magnetism, if two of these Pokémon meet, they cannot turn their faces towards each other when they are close because their magnetic noses repel one another. This causes problems for trainers who wish to battle their Nosepass. For other uses, see North Pole (disambiguation). ... Polar drift is a geological phenomenon caused by variations in the flow of molten iron (magma) in Earths outer core, resulting in changes in the orientation of Earths magnetic field, and hence the position of the magnetic north pole. ...


In the Pokémon video games

It can also be snagged from Wanderer Miror B. in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, but only as a randomly decided “left-over” Shadow Pokémon because the first time it appears is during a part of the game where the player is unable to snag Pokémon without the Snag Machine, so therefore the player is forced to knock it out through battle, and Nosepass can also be found in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl from a swarm at Route 206 after National Dex is obtained. Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, released in Japan as Pocket Monsters Ruby and Pocket Monsters Sapphire ), released on March 17, 2003 in North America for the Game Boy Advance, mark the beginning of the third generation in the Pokémon series of RPGs. ...
