Golurk (Japanese: ゴルーグ Goloog) is a dual-type Ground/Ghost Pokémon.

It evolves from Golett starting at level 43.

Biology

Golurk flying

Golurk is a bipedal automaton Pokémon resembling a suit of armor. It is mainly teal in color with yellow swirls on its shoulders and hands. It has a small head compared to its body, and pale yellow eyes. There is a crack across the chest of the armor, which is patched diagonally with a brown object resembling a belt. It has a crystal-like formation on each shoulder, and there are large bangles on its wrists and ankles. It has a Roman armor-like "skirt" and flat feet beneath.

Despite its large size, Golurk is capable of flying by inserting its hands in its arms and its legs and feet in its body, then taking off like a rocket. If the seal on its chest is removed, its energy runs wild. This causes it to fly around uncontrollably without being able to land itself. Golurk was created by an ancient civilization to protect people and Pokémon.
