In Alola, Graveler has a Rock and Electric type regional form. It evolves from Alolan Geodude starting at level 25 and evolves into Alolan Golden when traded. Take a look below for 26 awesome and interesting facts about Graveler.
1. Graveler is a bipedal, boulder Pokemon.
2. Its round body is covered with small bumps and it has a rocky crest above its small eyes and mouth.
3. It has four arms, each with a three-fingered hand.
4. Its second pair of arms is typically kept tucked against its chest.
5. It was shown in Pokémon Snap that, despite having legs, it can revert to a legless form. This grants it the ability to float.
6. Graveler’s preferred locomotion is rolling, specifically because it is a slow walker.
7. It often rolls down mountain paths at high speeds, crushing objects in the way and stopping by running into huge rocks. However, it will explode if it rolls into a river instead.
8. If it breaks or shatters, it has the ability to restore itself overtime.
9. Graveler climbs a mountain from base to summit, feasting on rocks all the while. Upon reaching the peak, it rolls down to the bottom.
10. Graveler can be often found on mountain trails.
11. In the Alola region, Graveler looks similar to its regular counterpart, but with a silvery sheen.
12. It lacks defined digits on its upper limbs and has two toes on each foot rather than three.
13. There are several small, yellowish crystals scattered across its body and iron sand attracted by magnetism. This black sand creates crystal-like formations above its eyes, across the tops of the upper pair of arms, and on the sides of its face.
