[edit] Competitive Battling

Golurk is in the Rarely-Utilized Tier of competitive battling as of this writing. While it started in the Under-Utilized Tier, and even made its way to the Over-Utilized Tier, Golurk found itself in the RU tier due to a lack of usage. In RU, Golurk faces stiff competition from fellow Ghost types such as Cofagrigus and Rotom for a team slot. Golurk is one of few Ghost types that hit from the physical side, and while its bulk may pail in comparison with defensive behemoths such as Cofagrigus, Golurk certainly has enough bulk to take a few hits. Golurk's movepool isn't extremely wide, but it has all the tools necessary for Golurk to be a feared physical attacker in any of the three tiers that it can appear in. Golurk's Ghost and Ground typing make it a unique and difficult threat to handle thanks to the wide neutral coverage of its STAB moves.
