Slugma (Japanese: マグマッグ Magmag) is a Fire-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Magcargo starting at level 38.

Biology

Physiology

Slugma are fiery Pokémon that appear to consist entirely of magma. They resemble slugs, with a pair of bright yellow eyes on short stalks and a small mouth. The magma inside its body acts as a circulatory system, transferring vital nutrients and oxygen throughout their bodies.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

As a Fire-type Pokémon composed of magma, Slugma is proficient at using attacks such as Lava Plume and Flamethrower.

Behavior

Slugma have to keep moving in order to keep warm; if they stopped moving, the magma would cool and become rock, which would eventually break off and reduce this Pokémon's size. For this reason, they never sleep.

Habitat

Mountain

Mountain Pokémon

Naturally, Slugma prefer warmer regions where they can keep their magma hot, so they are often found in volcanic regions.

Diet

It is not known what these Pokémon eat, but they presumably consume soil and rocks to both keep the volume of their magma and collect vital nutrients for their bodies.
