PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Rock Throw is superior to Volt Switch in most circumstances.
  • Volt Switch can be paired with Wild Charge for an Electric moveset.
  • Stone Edge is better than Rock Blast unless Alolan Golem faints with a partially charged bar.
  • Wild Charge is Alolan Golem's best charged move against Flying types if they don't have a double weakness to Rock.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Volt Switch is preferred over Rock Throw
  • Rock Blast is slightly better than Wild Charge, having a lower energy cost, early damage window, and cross-coverage with Volt Switch.
  • Stone Edge is nasty if it hits, but it may not get the chance to launch.   

PVE Overview

After 7 generations, Alolan Golem was part of the first combination Rock / Electric evolutionary line. Like Kantonian Golem, it's better at attacking from the Rock side, as Volt Switch is offensively poor even when not accounting for how cumbersome it is to use.

Wild Charge makes Alolan Golem the second best non-legendary Electric attacker behind Jolteon, which doesn't say much because Raikou is way better. However, it's good enough to be usable, unlike Kantonian Golem as a Ground attacker, which is not viable.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Rock Throw + Wild Charge and Rock Blast

Rock Throw is the superior choice, with a greater emphasis on raw damage output than energy generation. Volt Switch is a horrible move for PvP. 

Wild Charge is the main charge move used on Alolan Golem thanks to its high DPE rating and offering coverage against Water-types. Rock Blast is slightly more favorable than Stone Edge due to its lower energy cost which also allows shield-baiting, even though Stone Edge has a much higher DPE rating. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2.5 / 5

Alolan Golem is an offensive-oriented Pokemon in PvP, with somewhat well-rounded stats, a very vulnerable typing, and a slow but hard-hitting moveset. A weakness to the almost ubiquitous Fighting and Water-types sets it back quite a bit, as does unextraordinary bulk. What it does have going for it is a powerful moveset that allows it to compete against much more bulkier Pokemon like Umbreon or Cresselia. Overall a somewhat risky choice due to its easily exploitable weaknesses, which leaves Alolan Golem dependent on closed scenarios like the Silph Arena Jungle Cup. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5

Alolan Golem has the same problems in Ultra League as it did in Great League, but unfortunately many popular Pokemon in Ultra League also dispatch Alolan Golem very easily, which makes it difficult to use in general. If you're looking at open Ultra League, consider other Pokemon instead. 

Master League: 1 / 5

With a max CP of 2949, Alolan Golem falls behind many of the big players in Master League stat-wise. The vulnerable typing, unimpressive bulk, and slow moveset are still issues that Alolan Golem has, which overall results in losses in many matchups.
