I think the Steel Type Pokemon are the coolest type of Pokemon in the whole history of the Pokemon series. They are also very strong.
These steel-type Pokemon can’t be hurt by a lot of different types of Pokemon, so you have to have them on your team. These Pokemon are crazy powerful and have a great balance between attack and defense.
And yes, they all have their own weaknesses, like not doing well against Fire, Fighting, or Ground type Pokemon.
But that doesn’t mean they aren’t cool, so let’s take a look at the 18 best steel-type Pokemon on your team.
Bisharp is a Pokémon that looks like a two-legged human. It looks like a war helmet and has a round, red and black head with a golden double-headed axe blade on top. Its face is mostly yellow, but there is a black outline around it.
Most of its yellow and black face is hidden by the helmet, but its triangular eyes can be seen.
Bisharp’s red shoulders are a little bigger than its arms and have a thin yellow line where they meet its black torso. They look like shoulder pads.
It has white metal hands that look like gloves and are attached to retractable blades.
Melmetal is a big, silver Pokémon that looks like a person and is mostly made up of liquid metal.

Its neck is made of a large golden hexagonal nut, and a smaller one serves as its head. A small, dark gray sphere is moving around in its head. It has a tiny red tail that looks like a wire.
Empoleon is a big, navy-blue Pokémon that looks like a penguin. It has a wide, yellow beak that goes up into three pointed horns that form a trident-shaped crest between its blue eyes. Empoleon thinks that big horns show that he is strong and a leader.

At the point where the blade meets the handle, there is a single purple eye with a white pupil and black space around it.
The handle is a thick spike with ridges. Two arms made of cloth come out of the sides of the hilt. Each arm is mostly black, but it fades into a light purple with a swirly pattern at the end. At the ends of the sash-like arms are four tassels.
At least one of its arms always has a fancy shield in it. The shield is gold, and in the middle, there are three brown rings surrounded by black. It also has a brown edge with three lines that come together in the middle.
Perrserker, unlike Persian, still walks on two legs and has a body shape like it did when it was a Meowth. Some of the hair on its head and limbs has turned into natural armor.
The first one is in the shape of a stereotypical Viking helmet with horns that cover the ears and part of the eyes and hold the coin.
Perrserker’s claws have also grown longer and harder, and they can now be joined together to make daggers it can use to fight better.
A Pokémon called Ferrothorn looks like a flattened durian. Ferrothorn’s metal body is covered in thorns, and it has three black stripes that go around its width. The middle stripe has three triangles on it below its eyes.
Its eyes have green around the edges, yellow in the middle, and dark centers. At the top of its body is a green spike, and around it are long, vine-like green parts with sharp metal disks at the ends.
It is said that the spikes on Ferrothorn are stronger than steel. It can walk around or stick to the ceiling of a cave with these feelers.
When Magneton is in a special magnetic field and raises its level, it makes Magnezone. Even though evolution happens at the level of molecules, scientists have not been able to make it happen on their own.
