Magnezone is a powerful Pokemon Go species for both PvP and PvE. So, here’s how to get it, the best moves for PvP and PvE, and if shiny Magnezone is available in Pokemon Go.

The Electric/Steel-type Pokemon Magnezone is extremely popular for boasting 12 resistances, the highest in the franchise, so Pokemon Go players are naturally eager to have it on their PvP and PvE teams.

Here’s how you can get Magnezone in Pokemon Go, along with its recommended moveset for PvP and PvE, and if its shiny version is available in the game.


How to get Magnezone in Pokemon Go

Here’s how you can get Magnezone in Pokemon Go:

  • By evolving a Magneton with 100 Candy and a Sinnoh Stone.
  • By evolving a Magnemite to Magneton with 25 Candy, and then evolving Magneton to Magnezone.

Magnemite and Magneton are rare wild spawns, but you’re more likely to find them during Rainy or Snow in-game weather. What’s more, Magneton is available in 3-Star Raids until May 2, 2024, so this is a great opportunity to catch it. Do remember that Magnezone is not available in the wild.

If you’re wondering how to get a Sinnoh Stone in Pokemon Go, here’s how to do it:

  • By taking part in the Go Battle League and getting at least two wins in a set, where the second reward has a high chance of being a Sinnoh Stone.
  • Beating Team Leaders like Blanche, Candela, and Spark.
  • By spinning PokeStops and Gyms.
  • From certain Field Research tasks.
  • From the Research Breakthrough Box earned after completing Field Research tasks for seven days.

Can Magnezone be shiny in Pokemon Go?

Yes, shiny Magnezone is available in Pokemon Go and you can get it by evolving a shiny Magnemite all the way to Magnezone.

The odds of finding a shiny Magnemite in Pokemon Go are 1 in 512 encounters or 0.19% chance.

Best Magnezone Pokemon Go moveset for PvP

The best PvP moveset for Magnezone in Pokemon Go is Volt Switch with Wild Charge and Mirror Shot.

Volt Switch has a great combination of damage output and energy generation, making it an ideal Fast Move for Magnezone to quickly access its Charged Moves. Mirror Shot cots only 35 energy and helps bait shields while also offering a 30% chance to debuff the opponent’s Attack by one stage.

Wild Charge is extremely powerful, dealing 100 damage at only 45 energy. But keep in mind that using this move debuffs Magnezone’s Defense by two stages. So use it towards the end of the battle or when the opponent’s shields are down.

Best Magnezone Pokemon Go moveset for PvE

The best PvE moveset for Magnezone in Pokemon Go is Spark with Wild Charge.

Spark and Wild Charge form a phenomenal pair, boasting high DPS (Damage Per Second) backed by Magnezone’s impressive Attack stat.

Is Magnezone good in Pokemon Go?

Yes, Magnezone is great in Pokemon Go, especially in Raids and the Master League.

Its 12 resistances help it in the Go Battle League, being particularly effective against Fairy-types like Togekiss and Sylveon, while also countering Gyarados and Kyogre. While it can go up against Dragon Pokemon, be careful of Dragonite and Haxorus with Fighting-type moves.

As a Raid counter, it’s amazing against Water-type Pokemon, particularly in Kyogre and Primal Kyogre Raids.
