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

Golurk is a bipedal automaton Pokémon resembling a suit of armor. It said to have been invented by ancient people to serve as a laborer. 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 seal 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 retracting its hands into its arms and its legs and feet into its body, then taking off like a rocket. If the seal on its chest is removed, its energy runs wild. This causes it to rage and 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, the anime, and in Pokémon Adventures. Golurk was created by an ancient civilization to protect people and Pokémon.

A Golurk appeared in An Epic Defense Force! as an illusion in a movie directed by Luke.

A Golurk appeared in Meloetta and the Undersea Temple! and Unova's Survival Crisis!, under the ownership of Ridley. He used Golurk to fly with him, and it was also used to defend Meloetta from Team Rocket. It was also used to battle two Team Rocket Grunts' Golem and Rhydon. After that, it battled against the members of the Forces of Nature in their Therian Formes.

Multiple Golurk appeared in Ash and N: A Clash of Ideals!, Team Plasma and the Awakening Ceremony!, and What Lies Beyond Truth and Ideals!. They were owned by Cedric Juniper's assistants and used at the White Ruins, but they were later turned against their owners by Colress.

It attacked Ash when Hapu believed he was the one who had been stealing radishes from the field, and defeated Pikachu in battle. Golurk has since made further appearances in Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon. Hapu commonly uses Golurk to fly around Poni Island.

A giant Golurk appeared in JN014, where it was a guardian of the Ruins of the Titan at the Desert Resort. After it hatched from an ancient egg, it engaged in a Raid Battle with Ash, Goh, Keira, and the group leader. Once Golurk was defeated, Goh caught it. It will reappear in JN023.

Trivia

Origin

Golurk and its pre-evolved form both 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 Jewish story The Golem of Prague. The golem in this story was also believed to be able to summon the spirits of the dead, which was likely the reasoning for Golurk's Ghost-typing. Golurk also has elements resembling a gladiator, such as a skirt and shoulder pads.

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).
