Transition metals are those elements in the d-Block that consists entirely of metals. Those metals always form cations (ions with a positive charge) and the charges in the metals will vary. The reason they all form cations is because transition metals have relatively low ionization energies, so an electron can be much more easily ejected than for, let's say, a nonmetal like oxygen (O).
