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

It evolves from Golett starting at level 43.

Biology

Shiny 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, one of which turns to its left at the bottom, unlike Golett's eye, which turns right. 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. It is also capable of forming a cannon by pulling its legs into its body and standing on its hands, as seen in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond. Golurk was created by an ancient civilization to protect people and Pokémon.

Trivia

Origin

Golurk and its pre-evolution appear to be based on golems and, considering its body structure and ability to learn Fly, giant robots. The crack and strap on its chest may be a reference to the golem in the Hebrew story The Golem of Prague.

Name origin

Golurk is a combination of golem and lurk (referring to its Ghost type).

Goloog is a combination of golem and サイボーグ saibōgu (cyborg).
