Solrock is a spherical Pokémon that is mostly orange. It has eight yellow rocky spines protruding from its sides and many little yellow stony bumps running vertically along its middle. On its back are two rocky bumps on each side of the mid-line. Its huge eyes are framed by thick, semicircular yellow eyelids that reveal black sclerae and scarlet pupils. Each eye is surrounded by a black ring with six extensions.

Solrock is powered by solar energy, which it absorbs in groups throughout the day. While it never expresses itself, it can feel the emotions and thoughts of others. It rotates its body, emitting extreme heat and blinding light. It can remain quiet while floating in the air and is found in caverns. Solrock is said to have come from space, especially the sun.
