Obtaining Magnezone in Pokemon Go be a confusing process for trainers. Luckily, we’ve got everything you need to know including how to evolve Magneton and the best movesets for Magnezone once you’ve acquired the powerful Pokemon.

It’s an exciting time to be a Pokemon Go player at the moment with Niantic regularly releasing limited-time missions and exclusive rewards. They even added a special event for the recently released Pokemon Snap game, boosting the spawn rates of various Lental region Pokemon.

However, despite all of the new content, there are still a few Pokemon in-game that players struggle to catch. One, in particular, is the Electric and Steel-type Magnezone.


As it requires players to obtain a special item in order to evolve the Pokemon, it can be especially confusing for new trainers.
