The world of Pokémon has been a growing phenomenon since 1996, when the first pair of video games came out in stores. Pokémon started off as a video game series and although new creatures are primarily introduced in the video games, the anime series has become as popular as the video games. As of December 2021, there are almost 900 individual Pokémon identified by the PokéDex and in this article, we are going to tell you everything you need to know about one of them – Bronzor.
Bronzor is a dual Steel- and Psychic-type Pokémon first introduced in Generation IV of the core game series. It is the first stage evolution of the Generation IV Pokémon Bronzong, into which it evolves by leveling up, starting at Level 33. Bronzong has no Mega Evolution, nor a Gigantamax Form. It is weak to Ghost-, Ground-, Steel-, Fire-, and Dark-type moves, and is super effective against Rock-, Fairy-, Ice-, Fighting-, and Poison-type Pokémon.
In this article, we are going to tell you all the information you’ll need if you want to breed a Bronzor in any of the games. You’ll find out about its type, its powers, its strengths and weaknesses, its evolutions, and its moves. We’re going to focus on both the core games, as well as other popular video games based on the Pokémon franchise.
Bronzor is a dual Steel- and Psychic-type Pokémon that looks like a flying plate. It was first introduced in Generation IV of the video games and holds #436 in the National PokéDex.
Bronzor looks primarily like a floating, metal disc, more closely like an antique mirror, and appears mainly in dark blue and turquoise blue. At the edge of the disc, there are six dark blue balls of the same size, which have merged with the Pokémon and are arranged in a hexagon. Since bronzel is probably made of bronze, its color can be explained by the effects of weather conditions.
From Bronzor’s center, three rings with different radii are formed. The outermost ring is turquoise blue, while the two smaller, inner rings are dark blue. On the line between these two rings, there are four small, turquoise blue circles that form a square. It has large, yellow, oval eyes with black pupils that never seem to close. I
n addition, in the middle of his bronze mirror-like body, another turquoise-blue ball, which looks like his nose, can be seen. A pattern in the form of a branch with five leaves can be seen on its back. In its shimmering form, the turquoise blue and the dark blue are replaced by a light and a slightly darker shade of green.
Bronzor is a fairly defensive Pokémon and doesn’t care much for offense or good speed. His natural repertoire of attacks consists largely of attacks of the Psychic-, Steel- and Dark-types, there is also a good balance of direct and supportive attacks. It uses its steel body to carry out physical attacks such as Gyro Ball and Counter, which are usually particularly effective due to its low speed, or attacks that can take advantage of its high weight.
With the use of Feint, it can also dupe its opponents and always hit them. Alternatively, it is also possible for him to attack from a distance using his psychological powers. Furthermore, it can put its opponents to sleep with Hypnosis, prevent them from attacking or healing with a Confusion Beam and other different attacks, weaken the opposing defense with Metal Sound or protect itself from attacks with some specific attacks.
