Trivia

  • Normally, evolved stages of Pokémon cannot be shiny in encounter screen, but after its Mega Evolution release, Steelix could.
  • Originally Mega Energy for Steelix was going to be included during January 2022 Research Breakthrough but an unforeseen issue prevented this happening. Therefore it was given in Timed Research instead.[1]
  • Before the release of Mega Levels, Steelix could Mega Evolve into Mega Steelix initially after being given 200 Mega Energy, and 40 afterwards.
