Evolution family: RoggenrolaBoldore at level 25 > Gigalith via trade


Unlike Golem, who gains a secondary Ground type, Gigalith maintains its pure Rock type, making it the only pure Rock third evolution to date. Whether that makes Gigalith more interesting or less interesting is debatable. Its STAB move options are limited because of its Rock type and completely dismal special attack stat, and your best bet is Stone Edge, TM71 (Gigalith also learns it at level 48). Sandstorm (TM37) is also a must, especially if you have a Gigalith with the Dream World ability Sand Power. The combination of its dismally low speed and low special defense are going to make it difficult to use in battle though. 

Note: Wild Roggenrola and Boldore both have a 50% chance of holding an Everstone, so when you're ready to evolve Boldore into Gigalith, make sure you check for and remove the Everstone before trading, otherwise it won't evolve.

    I need someone to trade my Boldore with so it'll evolve, and I don't know anyone who has ever even played Pokemon. Could someone here help me out?

    This family reminds me a lot more of the Beldum family than the Geodude family, or maybe a mix of both.

    I like this family. Geodude is one of my favorite families to use, so it's nice to look at these and see that they're rather nicely designed and very crystalline, which is neat. Dat speed, though. Wow. It's like they wanted to make him not get used.

    Easily the best named pokemon EVER.
