Bastiodon is a Steel and Rock-type Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. It will evolve from Shieldon upon reaching level 30. This Pokémon doesn’t have very good attack stats, but its defense makes it a real powerhouse in battle.
Because Bastiodon is a Rock and Steel-type Pokémon, most of its most powerful moves will also be Rock and Steel-type. This is because of the S.T.A.B. (Same Type Attack Bonus) which will give bonus damage to moves that match a Pokémon’s typing. Bastiodon’s best moves are Double-Edge, Earth Power, Iron Head, and Rock Slide.
