It no longer has the spike on its head but instead has three pairs of spikes on alternating segments of its body. Its tail ends in a sharp point, and its head is bulkier with external ridges along its bottom lip that resemble canines. Male and female Steelix can be told apart by the number of ridges, with males having two pairs and females having a single pair.

Capable of Mega Evolution, Mega Steelix have nearly twice the mass as Steelix. Its spikes and tail have transformed into sparkling, rainbow crystals and clusters of metal float in a circle around the back of its head and the first segment of its body. Bright blue hexagons decorate the smaller segments of its body and its head has taken much sharper edges, with six regtangular outcroppings set around its jaw.

Steelix make their home in mountains and caves, often tunneling more than half a mile underground. They can eat even the hardest of rocks and can see in the dark. Their bodies have grown significantly harder than diamongs from the intense pressure during their time underground.
