Gigalith (Japanese: ギガイアス Gigaiath) is a Rock-type Pokémon. It evolves from Boldore when traded. It is the final form of Roggenrola. Gigalith is a blue quadruped Pokémon, with various spiny, crystal-like red features jutting out of its body. Its limbs have gray joints and are topped with red crystalline features, with the two claws on each limb being similar features. It has a red eye inside each ear. Several of the crystalline features are present on its face; three below its eyes, one in the middle resembling a crest, and other crystals to the sides of its head. It compresses energy in the core inside its body that is enough to blow away mountains. It can also store sunlight in its orange crystals and shoot powerful energy from its mouth. It lives in caves and tunnels deep underground.

Weaknesses: Weak against Fighting, Ground, Steel, Water, and Grass-type attacks.
- Sturdy: Gigalith's primary special ability. Gigalith with this particular ability have even higher compositional durability than other members of the species that lack this attribute, and they cannot be knocked out with a single hit.
- Sand Force: Gigalith's hidden (secondary) special ability. The few Gigalith specimens that develop this trait are able to augment the offensive power of their geokinesis while under sandstorm conditions.
- Tackle: Gigalith performs a full-body tackle.
- Harden: Gigalith stiffens its body structure to augment its physical defenses.
- Sand-Attack: Gigalith launches sand at the opponent's face, with the purpose of blinding the enemy and reducing their accuracy.
- Headbutt: Gigalith executes a headbutt.
- Rock Blast: Gigalith launches multiple large boulders individually in quick succession.
- Mud-Slap: Gigalith hurls mud at the opponent's face, with the purpose of blinding the enemy, as well as inflicting damage.
- Iron Defense: Gigalith reinforces or alters its skin to a metallic-like composition, radically augmenting its physical defenses.
- Smack Down: Gigalith fires a large boulder at an airborne opponent, usually with enough force to send them crashing into the ground.
- Power Gem: The energy core inside Gigalith absorbs energy from sunlight, then magnifies the intensity of the energy before firing a massive beam of sparkling light from its mouth. Capable of wiping out entire mountains at full power.
- Rock Slide: Gigalith launches an avalanche of rocks, stones and boulders at multiple targets on the battlefield.
- Stealth Rock: Gigalith carefully sets up a layer of levitating and sharpened stones around the opponent's "area" of the battlefield, crippling the health of incoming and unsuspecting allies for the opponent.
- Sandstorm: Gigalith is capable of conjuring up a particularly violent sandstorm to the battlefield. Only beings composed of rock, metal or skin equivalent to the aforementioned materials in toughness are immune to the velocity and penetrative force of this type of sandstorm.
- Stone Edge: Gigalith stabs the opponent with a large, sharpened rock.
- Explosion: Gigalith unleashes the sum of its energy reserves in a single omnidirectional burst of power. Typically results in the user falling unconscious after usage.
