Title

ゴルーグ is Gorūgo, Goruugo, or Gorugo, not Goruggo. Louisng114 01:51, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Actually, it's Gorūgu, Goruugu, or Gorugu; however, the point remains that this page has an incorrect title. --SnorlaxMonster 06:53, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
I'm not too good with Japanese, but shouldn't the non-Japenese version sound something like "Golug", since "ru" translates into "lu", there's a long vowel stress, and the u at the end falls off? Arrogios 04:58, 12 October 2010 (UTC)
This name will do until we get an official romanisation. The 'r' sound is the equivalent of both 'r' and 'l', so it could go either way; if it always ended up as 'l' we would romanise it that way. As for the ending 'u', it isn't always dropped, so it is not incorrect to leave it. --SnorlaxMonster 12:45, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Goruugu and Gobitto's colors

Why are they classed as green-colored Pokemon? They look like they're aquamarine color, which is blue... I'm really confused... --Han Ji-Wan 01:29, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

The colours here are the ones used in the PC boxes, which assign each Pokémon to a specific colour group. Werdnae (talk) 01:49, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
Interesting. I didn't know that. Thank you! :D --Han Ji-Wan 01:55, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

ORIGIN

Any resemblance: [1] look closely!!!Badwolf1234 05:01, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Already mentioned. In fact, it is the first thing in the origin section. --SnorlaxMonster 06:40, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
How about? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sym-Bionic_Titan Random Chaos 11:06, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
I find that highly unlikely. It was released too recently, around the time of the Japanese release date (Pokémon are designed well before the game's release). Also, it is a single-season American TV series, not something that Japanese Pokémon designers are likely to know about. Not to mention the fact that the aspects that resemble Golurk are generally stereotypes of giant robots anyway. --SnorlaxMonster 13:00, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
Is the "bandage" on its chest really based on a band-aid? The only origin of this element that makes sense to me is the bar that prevents the internal energy of the Prague golem (and perhaps others? I only know the Prague golem narrative) from escaping its body. Blue Charizard (talk) 13:57, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Flight Methodology

I read in the "Special abilities" section that Golurk inserts its hands into its arms and retracts its legs and feet before taking off rocket-style. However, I haven't seen anything else that makes such a claim. I suspect that this detail is just someone's speculation, and I remember certain rules stating not to post things like speculation, especially as fact. Can anyone confirm or deny my suspicions? SharKing Productions 21:02, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

I believe it's from Golurk's 4-koma strip. Each of the B/W Pokémon was given one in the official Japanese strategy guide, IIRC. Blazios 12:01, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Goloog, official romanization?

Check the web address. I'll let you decide. --ケンジガール 05:21, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

I think it's official enough. Masatoshitalk 05:43, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Event Moves

Should Hyper Beam be under event moves as it can learn it by TM as well? I just want to check before removing it. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 17:56, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Oh, and same for Gyro Ball actually. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 17:56, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
If it can learn it already then why are they listed as event moves? Frozen Fennec 18:17, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
