Boldore(Japanese: ガントル Gantoru) is a Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Boldore is a Rock-type Pokémon that appears mostly blue. It has red crystals on its back and front, and a spine that extends between two yellow holes it uses as eyes. It and it's evolutions/pre-evolutions share a resemblance to the Nosepass family and the Geodude family. Despite contrary belief, it does not float.

Evolution[edit | edit source]

Boldore is the evolved form of Roggenrola as of level 25. It then evolves into Gigalith via trade.

Generations I - IV
Boldore did not appear during the Generation I - IV games.
When it overflows with power, the orange crystal on its body glows. It looks for underground water in caves.
Because its energy was too great to be contained, the energy leaked and formed orange crystals.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Boldore and its counterpart Gurdurr are the first Pokémon since Generation 1 that evolve by trading and no other requirements.
  • It bears a resemblance to Graveler as they both evolve via trade and they're both Rock types.
  • Boldore's English name is a combination of the words "boulder" and "ore" that is some kind of nucleus.
