You're Welcome On My Boat
These Beldums and their evolved forms make their home on asteroids high in iron content. Even after Beldums combine to become Metangs and then into Metagrosses, they continue to grow extra ‘cores’ akin to Beldum that can be removed from their bodies and implanted in small asteroids to produce more of their kind. As such, they don’t have the smooth and angular appearance of their normal versions, instead having roughly shaped bodies of hewn stone and unprocessed metal.
Dense asteroid fields often hold large colonies of these creatures, and it isn’t uncommon within these colonies to find entire asteroids composed of linked Beldums, Metangs, and Metagrosses. Despite the lack of psychic ability, they seem able to communicate with each other when physically connected.
