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.
If Magnemites happen to be abundant in your area, Magneton is a reasonably good attacker in a gym; while its stats are not nearly as high as the most powerful and popular Pokemon, its unique typing gives it an advantage against them. Its rare Steel typing allows it to resist Psychic and Normal moves such as that from Snorlax and Blissey, as well as Fairy moves from the latter, Dragon moves from Dragonite and Gyarados, Steel moves from Dragonite and Tyranitar. Its Electric moves are super effective against the multiple common Water types, such as Vaporeon and Gyarados while its Steel moves are super effective against Tyranitar.
