PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Mud Slap and Earth Power make Golurk a good Ground Type attacker.
  • Astonish and Shadow Punch are bad, but if you're desperate for a Ghost attacker then... go hunt some Gastly.
  • Dynamic Punch is a great move, but not great on Golurk.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Stick with Mud Slap. It beats out Astonish without breaking a sweat.
  • All of Golurk's charged moves are great for defense. Dynamic Punch hits Dark types like Tyranitar hard but leaves it open to other Ghosts, Earth Power is objectively powerful but leaves Golurk a sitting duck against anything that resists Ground, and Shadow Punch has wide coverage and 3 bars, but fairly low power.

PVE Overview

Everyone's favorite Golem (I'm looking at you, Regi trio!) is a Pokemon with an interesting and unique typing, as well as one heck of a cool design. It's actually a fairly good Ground Type attacker, hitting hard thanks to Earth Power to make up for its lower attack stat to some degree. As for Ghost Type damage... let's just say thatthis clay Pokemon will return to the earth from which it was formed long before it can deal meaningful damage. Stick with Ground.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Mud Slap + Shadow Punch and Earth Power or Dynamic Punch

Mud Slap is slightly more favorable for its significantly higher damage output. Astonish has slightly better energy gains, but this doesn't make up for the lack of power. 

Shadow Punch is a poor move, but benefits from STAB, and costing the least amount of energy lets it bait shields. Earth Power also has STAB which makes it the most powerful move for Golurk, but Dynamic Punch might be more valuable for its wide coverage. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1 / 5

Golurk looks like a cool ancient guardian, but unfortunately that's about all it's good for in PvP. A high ATK stat limits its overall bulk in Great League, while a unique Ground/Ghost typing isn't very synergistic and makes Golurk vulnerable against common typings. While its charge moves are quite strong and have good coverage, Golurk fails to make good use of them with unimpressive energy generation and average damage output at best from its fast moves. Access to Ground-type moves do give it favorable matchups against various popular Steel-types, but its Ghost-type coverage is rather lackluster against most Psychic-types other than Medicham. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5

Golurk's Ground-type coverage is good against popular Steel-types in this league, but that's about all Golurk can do. Poor Ghost-type moves leave no opportunities for Golurk to establish itself in the Giratina-centric meta, and its fragility doesn't help it either. 

Master League: 0 / 5

With a max CP of 2854 Golurk lacks adequate stats to compete well in Master League. While it can win some matchups when it has a typing advantage, a long list of losses discourages its use.
