Onix is a Pokémon made out of a massive chain of gray rocks that become smaller towards the tail. It is the tallest Rock-type Pokémon due to its length. It has a rounded nose and dark eyes. A stony spine protrudes from the top of its skull. As it ages, it gets more rounded and smooth, finally resembling black diamonds. A magnet within its brain acts as an internal compass, leading Onix wherever they need to go and keeping them from getting lost while digging.

Onix travels at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour (80 kilometers per hour), causing earthquakes and a terrible noise that can be heard for miles. Hard items encountered while digging are absorbed into its body, making it very durable. It feeds on the boulders as well. Diglett lives in the huge, convoluted tunnels it leaves behind. Onix, as featured in the Pokémon Stadium series, can rotate its head or any portion of its body 360 degrees. As shown in the anime, it is an extremely violent Pokémon that would repeatedly attack people and other Pokémon while in agony. An Onix that lives for roughly 100 years is thought to transform into a Steelix after its composition becomes more diamond-like. It’s found in mountains and caverns.

One of the numerous captureable Pokemon in Pokemon GO is Onix.
