Golurk (Japanese: ゴルーグ Goruugu) is a dual-type Ground/Ghost Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Golett starting at level 43.

Biology

Physiology

Golurk resembles a suit of armor possessed by a ghost. It has a small head compared to its body, and large bangles on all its limbs. There is also a crack across the chest of the armor which is patched diagonally in the opposite orientation which resembles a belt. It has a crystal-like formation on its shoulders. It has a Roman-armor-like "skirt" and flat feet beneath.

Gender differences

Golurk is a genderless species.

Special abilities

Despite its large size, Golurk is capable of flying. By inserting its hands in its arms and inserting its legs and feet in its body, it can take off like a rocket. An undefinable energy burns inside it, and if the seal on its chest is taken off, the energy will go out of control.

Behavior

Golurk was created to protect people and Pokémon. If the bandage-like seal on it's chest is removed its power will run wild and it will Fly uncontrollably without being able to land or stop itself.
