Trivia

  • Nuclear Actan cannot be legitimately obtained.
    • Prior to the 1.0.1 patch, there was a glitch allowing the corrupted Nuclear version of Actan to be caught. This form is Nuclear/Steel, with the moves Inferno, Nuclear Slash, Iron Defense, and Metal Cruncher.
    • Prior to the 1.2.0 patch, it could still be caught but was removed from the player's possession directly afterwards.
    • With the 1.2.0 patch, Nuclear Actan was made uncatchable.
    • If Nuclear Actan is encountered in Randomizer mode, it cannot be captured.
  • Nuclear Actan is the only Pokémon to be doubly resistant to Nuclear-type moves.
    • It is also the only dual-type Nuclear Pokémon that has Nuclear as its primary type.

Design Origin

Name Origin

Its name probably came from actinide. The actinide series is a grouping of 15 radioactive elements on the periodic table. It could also come from actinium, the element for which the actinide series is named.
