      The following chart shows Shadow Magnemite's DPS and TDO for every fast and charge attack combination. This chart is useful for comparing the relative strength of Shadow Magnemite's movesets. You can change the weather and the opposing Pokémon to see how it affects the rankings.

      If you are unable to get Shadow Magnemite with its best moveset, we recommend to use Spark/Thunderbolt. You will lose around 1.4% DPS and TDO, which makes these moves a viable alternative to Shadow Magnemite's strongest moveset (Thunder Shock/Thunderbolt).

      Legacy Elite Fast and Charge Attacks can only be obtained during special events, or by using an Elite Fast TM or an Elite Charge TM. Legacy moves are marked with an asterisk (*). The table above provides information on different moves Shadow Magnemite has in Pokémon GO, along with their corresponding DPS (Damage per Second) and TDO (Total Damage Output).

                Catch probability with multiple throws

                In order to help Trainers understand their overall odds when catching Shadow Magnemite, we enable the functionality to showing the total chance to catch it depending on the number of available throws. We calculate this chance as if you repeated the same throw N-number of times.

                To activate this functionality, change the number of Number of throws to a value greater than 1. The Number of throws option is available in the configuration options above the chart

                Catch rate formula

                Pokémon GO catch rate formula can be expressed as follows:

                • CATCH_MULTIPLIERS = ball * curve * berry * throwType * (type1Medal + type2Medal / 2)
                • CATCH_RATE = 1 - Math.pow(1 - baseCatchRate / (2 * cpm), CATCH_MULTIPLIERS)

                There are different multipliers that come into play when calculating catch rate.

                Curved throws are more effective than regular throws, stronger types of Poké Ball have a higher catch rate, and using a Razz Berry or a Golden Razz Berry also improves your chances.

                Catch rate multipliers

                FireRedIt moves while constantly hovering. It discharges THUNDER WAVE and so on from the units at its sides.
                LeafGreenUses antigravity to stay suspended. Appears without warning and uses THUNDER WAVE and similar moves.
                Diamond, PearlThe units at its sides generate electromagnetic waves that keep it airborne. It feeds on electricity.
                Platinum, Black, WhiteThe faster the units at its sides rotate, the greater the magnetic force they generate.
                HeartGoldIt is attracted by electromagnetic waves. It may approach Trainers if they are using their Pokégear.
                SoulSilverThe units at the sides of its body generate antigravity energy to keep it aloft in the air.
                Black 2, White 2The electromagnetic waves emitted by the units at the sides of its head expel antigravity, which allows it to float.
                XThe units at the sides of its body generate antigravity energy to keep it aloft in the air.
                YIt moves while constantly hovering. It discharges Thunder Wave and so on from the units at its sides.
                Omega RubyMagnemite attaches itself to power lines to feed on electricity. If your house has a power outage, check your circuit breakers. You may find a large number of this Pokémon clinging to the breaker box.
                Alpha SapphireMagnemite floats in the air by emitting electromagnetic waves from the units at its sides. These waves block gravity. This Pokémon becomes incapable of flight if its internal electrical supply is depleted.
                SunThey gather in places where electricity is available. They can be found clinging to the steel towers used to support power lines.
                MoonIt sends out electromagnetic waves, which let it float through the air. Touching it while it’s eating electricity will give you a full-body shock.
                Ultra SunIt’s frequently the cause of power outages, which is why some power plants send out electrical signals that it can’t stand.
                Ultra MoonPerhaps because electrical lines are often buried these days, the number of Magnemite attacks on power plants has increased.
                Let's Go, Pikachu!, Let's Go, Eevee!It is hatched with the ability to defy gravity. It floats while emitting powerful electromagnetic waves.
                SwordAt times, Magnemite runs out of electricity and ends up on the ground. If you give batteries to a grounded Magnemite, it’ll start moving again.
                ShieldIt subsists on electricity. As Magnemite flies, it emits electromagnetic waves from the units on each side of its body.
                Legends: ArceusA bizarre Pokémon with but a single eye embedded in an iron sphere. I suspect this creature levitates due to the magnetism it emits from its arms, which resemble horseshoe-shaped magnets.
