Duraludon is a Steel/Dragon type Pokémon introduced in Generation 8. It is known as the Alloy Pokémon.

The metal composing its body is incredibly durable but also surprisingly light. It only weighs about 88 lbs. in total. Thanks to this, Duraludon can move quite quickly in spite of its appearance. Its body is weak to corrosion, however, and is known to rust easily.
