A common sight in volcanic areas, it slowly slithers around in a constant search for warm places.
Crystal These group together in areas that are hotter than normal. If it cools off, its skin hardens.
Ruby Molten magma courses throughout SLUGMA’s circulatory system. If this POKéMON is chilled, the magma cools and hardens. Its body turns brittle and chunks fall off, reducing its size.
Sapphire SLUGMA does not have any blood in its body. Instead, intensely hot magma circulates throughout this POKéMON’s body, carrying essential nutrients and oxygen to its organs.
Emerald It is a species of POKéMON that lives in volcanic areas. If its body cools, its skin hardens and immobilizes it. To avoid that, it sleeps near magma.
