Golem (ゴローニャ) is the 76th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Rock/Ground-Type, and is known as the Megaton Pokémon.

Golem can use one of two Abilities: Rock Head, which protects it from taking recoil damage from moves that cause recoil; or Sturdy, which protects it from being KO'd if its HP is full and nullifies One-Hit KO moves. A third Ability is available to Golem from the Dream World, the Sand Veil Ability, which increases its Evasion by one stage during a Sandstorm.

Geodude can evolve into Graveler at Level 25 and evolve into Golem via trading to another game.

Golem is in the Mineral Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Golem 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Biology

[edit] Physiology

Similar to its previous forms, Golem takes on an appearance of a boulder, but this time it has a layer of plated rocks. The coloration is debatable since it's sprite art and anime art colour's are different. In anime it seems to be mostly grey while in gameplay it is a green-grey. Around of the centre of its body is where its head is. Golem's face is reptile-like, it has sharp fangs and it's eye colour is red. Golem has two arms with three claws and legs with four.

Golem doesn't have any visible characteristics to differentiate between male and female.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Golem finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. Its main use is for Stealth Rock, which is almost guaranteed to be set up thanks to Sturdy, unless the opponent has Mold Breaker or uses a Multi-hit attack.

While it has strong Attack and Defense, Golem cannot give-or take-a Special Attack due to having low Statistics in both. Faster Pokémon will also give Golem fits as well.
