Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Golurk is a part of the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. With a unique typing that grants it immunities to Normal-, Fighting-, and Electric-type attacks, Golurk can block both Rapid Spin and Volt Switch, being useful for preventing entry hazard removal and killing the momentum of VoltTurn teams while being one of few physical attackers to be able to take care of Fighting-types. It has a great Attack stat and STAB combination as well as solid overall coverage. Its bulk is pretty good for an offensive Pokémon, giving it decent switch-in opportunities. Golurk has two great abilities in Iron Fist and No Guard, with the former giving a boost to all of its punching attacks while the latter gives Golurk 100% accuracy with all moves, which is extremely helpful when using Dynamic Punch. Golurk is best used as an offensive Stealth Rock user that can dish out solid damage while being able to support the team effectively due to its plus matchup against certain entry hazard removers. Golurk can also run a Choice Band set that acts as a powerful wallbreaker and has destructive potential with its expansive coverage. Golurk's problems lie in its low Speed stat and common weaknesses to Grass, Ice, Water, and Dark, which hinders its effectiveness as an offensive threat and as a spinblocker.
