A Look Into Video Games: Onix

 Onix is a pokemon from the original 150 set. I mostly remember him as Brock's toughest pokemon in the first gym battle. Real easy to beat if you have Squirtle, but in Pokemon Yellow the battle with Onix is just like the anime; painful, long, and takes many tries.

Onix's original Japanese name is イワーク (Iwaku) which is a combination of 岩 (Iwa) which means "stone", and スネ−ク (Suneku) which is a Japanese pronunciation of the English word "snake".


  1. Onyx is the most shameful Pokemon ever. He was defeated by a low level Pikachu even though he's supposed to be immune to thunder attacks.
