Geodude changes

Pokédex entries

Geodude

Red
Blue
Found in fields and mountains. Mistaking them for boulders, people often step or trip on them.
Yellow Commonly found near mountain trails, etc. If you step on one by accident, it gets angry.
Gold Most people may not notice, but a closer look should reveal that there are many GEODUDE around.
Silver It uses its arms to steadily climb steep mountain paths. It swings its fists around if angered.
Crystal Proud of their sturdy bodies, they bash against each other in a contest to prove whose is harder.
Ruby The longer a GEODUDE lives, the more its edges are chipped and worn away, making it more rounded in appearance. However, this POKéMON’s heart will remain hard, craggy, and rough always.
Sapphire When GEODUDE sleeps deeply, it buries itself halfway into the ground. It will not awaken even if hikers step on it unwittingly. In the morning, this POKéMON rolls downhill in search of food.
FireRed Its round form makes it easy to pick up. Some people have used them to hurl at each other in a snowball fight.
LeafGreen Found in fields and mountains. Mistaking them for boulders, people often step or trip on them.
Emerald It climbs mountain paths using only the power of its arms. Because they look just like boulders lining paths, hikers may step on them without noticing.
Diamond Many live on mountain trails and remain half buried while keeping an eye on climbers.
Pearl It is impossible to distinguish from rocks. It slams against others in contests of hardness.
Platinum At rest, it looks just like a rock. Carelessly stepping on it will make it swing its fists angrily.
HeartGold Most people may not notice, but a closer look should reveal that there are many GEODUDE around.
SoulSilver It uses its arms to steadily climb steep mountain paths. It swings its fists around if angered.

Alpha Sapphire When Geodude sleeps deeply, it buries itself halfway into the ground. It will not awaken even if hikers step on it unwittingly. In the morning, this Pokémon rolls downhill in search of food.
Sun Its round body makes it easy to pick up, but it is hard and heavy. It’s dangerous to play with them as if they were snowballs.
Moon There are plenty of them to be found along any road. A scholar with too much free time once counted a hundred of them along a single route.
Ultra Sun Geodude that have lived a long life have had all their edges smoothed out until they’re totally round. They also have a calm, quiet disposition.
Ultra Moon It uses both hands to climb precipitous cliffs. People who see it in action have been known to take up bouldering.
Let's Go Pikachu
Let's Go Eevee
Commonly found near mountain trails and the like. If you step on one by accident, it gets angry.

Alolan Geodude

Sun Its body is a magnetic stone. Iron sand attaches firmly to the portions of its body that are particularly magnetic.
Moon If you accidentally step on a Geodude sleeping on the ground, you’ll hear a crunching sound and feel a shock ripple through your entire body.
Ultra Sun If you mistake it for a rock and step on it, it will headbutt you in anger. In addition to the pain, it will also zap you with a shock.
Ultra Moon Geodude compete against each other with headbutts. The iron sand on their heads will stick to whichever one has stronger magnetism.
Let's Go Pikachu
Let's Go Eevee
Its stone head is imbued with electricity and magnetism. If you carelessly step on one, you’ll be in for a painful shock.
