Flavour Text
Ruby MAGCARGO's shell is actually its skin that hardened as a result of cooling. Its shell is very brittle and fragile - just touching it causes it to crumble apart. This POKéMON returns to its original size by dipping itself in magma.
Sapphire MAGCARGO's body temperature is approximately 18,000 degrees F. Water is vaporized on contact. If this POKéMON is caught in the rain, the raindrops instantly turn into steam, cloaking the area in a thick fog.
Emerald The shell on its back is made of hardened magma. Tens of thousands of years spent living in volcanic craters have turned MAGCARGO's bodies into magma.
Fire Red Its brittle shell occasionally spouts intense flames that circulate throughout its body.
Leaf Green The shell on its back is just skin that has cooled and hardened. It breaks easily with a slight touch.
