Rolycoly

This page is about a new Pokémon; details may be incomplete.

Rolycoly is a Rock type Pokémon introduced in Generation 8. It is known as the Coal Pokémon.

Rolycoly has no problem dashing through dark areas or rough terrain. Its red eye can illuminate dark areas, while it uses the lump of coal attached to its body like a wheel to move through coal mines and caves. It seems to be able to travel smoothly even over rough terrain.
