Silver The MAGNEMITE are united by a magnetism so powerful, it dries all moisture in its vicinities.
Crystal When many MAGNETON gather together, the resulting magnetic storm disrupts radio waves.
Ruby MAGNETON emits a powerful magnetic force that is fatal to mechanical devices. As a result, large cities sound sirens to warn citizens of large-scale outbreaks of this POKéMON.
Sapphire MAGNETON emits a powerful magnetic force that is fatal to electronics and precision instruments. Because of this, it is said that some towns warn people to keep this POKéMON inside a POKé BALL.
FireRed A linked cluster formed of several MAGNEMITE. It discharges powerful magnetic waves at high voltage.
LeafGreen Formed by several MAGNEMITE linked together. They frequently appear when sunspots flare up.
Emerald It is actually three MAGNEMITE linked by magnetism. It generates powerful radio waves that raise temperatures by 3.6 degrees F within a 3,300-foot radius.
