They are both floating in mid air. I was told Pokemon like this has the Levitate ability

  • Hydreigon
  • Gastly
  • Haunter
    Another thing, how on EARTH does Gengar have Levitate?
Do not forget that Magnezone can learn Magnet Rise, which like a temporary Levitate.

That's just the way the Game Designers wanted it I suppose.
Besides, Magnezone has sturdy and magnet pull already, it would have been nice to cut out it's 4x weakness to ground though. Or at least have it as a DW ability, I guess not.

Perhaps the game designers thought that Gengar could have the ability to levitate on command and didn't really have a good substitute at the time. Unless you ask them directly no one really knows.

Okay, thanks!
Cursed Body would have been WAY better for Gengar.

To make it fair for others.
Here's what i mean....

magnezone has good stats, and the most no. of resistances. so to make it fair for others, magnezone does not have levitate so that the opponent has a chance as well.http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/35605/which-pokemon-have-the-most-resistances-immunities

This answer has the best point.
12 resistances and 2 immunitys after levitate....... 3 types hit neutrally or super effective
