Several Golem?

The only Golem I remember Pikachu defeating was the one in the opening of the first movie. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 20:48, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

I don't remember Ash beating any Golem with electric attacks. I know he beat Brock's Geodude with an electric attack, but thats it. Xanhawk

Generation II Backsprite

I don't ever remember Golem using that backsprite. Is it from Gold and Silver by any chance? Because I have Crystal and it doesn't use that one. LordHeinz 23:19, 24 May 2010 (UTC)


does anybody know which trainer has a golem in FireRed and LeafGreen? i've beaten the e4 and only need a golem to finish off my kanto 'dex but don't have access to trades :|

Same here, but it says in the trivia that you cant even SEE golem without trading in gen 1. Speaking of which, shouldn't that say "And it's remakes"?Leafgreener in 2010 00:53, 28 June 2011 (UTC)


Seems to be false as Graveler you get in Japanese Blue evolves. And Japanese Blue is a Generation I game, after all! Marked +-+-+ (talk) 16:38, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Amended to fix. --Spriteit (talk) 02:32, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

What about Magmar and Electabuzz?

As far as I know there is NO in-game trainer that has either Magmar or Electabuzz, so don't they count as well when it comes to Pokémon not seen in the games?

If nobody objects I'm adding that to the trivia as well. TheBlazikenMaster (talk) 22:06, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

No, because you can catch them. The trivia says "couldn't even see" meaning you never fight one in a Trainer battle and that it is not seen in the wild. Magmar and Electabuzz, however, are found fairly easily in the wild. So you can still see them. Crystal Talian 22:10, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
That might be true. However you can't see Magmar in Pokémon Red and you can't see Electabuzz in Pokémon Blue. That's what I'm talking about. TheBlazikenMaster (talk) 16:07, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
True. But you can also only see one of the evolved Fossils as well. The point of the trivia is really that you can never see Golem regardless of version. It may be worth a small note in the trivia. Although, I question the point of the trivia altogether, since being able to see a Pokémon only matters in Gen IV onwards. Crystal Talian 20:27, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Alright, I'm adding Magmar and Electabuzz to the trivia section since it is mentioned in the Mandibuzz's trivia section that it can't be seen in White. TheBlazikenMaster (talk) 00:36, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Fourth Claw

Golem's FireRed/LeafGreen Sugimori art has four claws, but its Red/Blue Sugimori art only has three. And, all of its sprites up until its Diamond/Pearl sprite have three, which is interesting. Could this potentially be trivia? Furret63 (talk) 14:19, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

Finger/claw inconsistencies are pretty common yet minor, so they aren't notable.--Den Zen 14:35, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

The name.

So the other day I added trivia about the fact that Goelm is one of the few Pokémon which has a name which consists of an actual word.

It was reverted, the reason it was is because it's not notable since there is more than one.

Alright, let me ask something. How is it not notable?

I mean in Muk's trivia section there is a trivia comparing it to two other Pokémon. In Lapras's trivia section it shares something with six other Pokémon.

So again, how is it not notable? Most Pokémon have names that is a combination of words or a word changed. So I believe it's notable, of course I won't add it back yet. TheBlazikenMaster (talk) 13:54, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Oddish, Persian, Slowpoke, Haunter, Mr. Mime, Jynx, Ditto, Kabuto, Mew. That's nine I can think of. You could even stretch that Onix (Onyx), Muk (Muck), Koffing (coughing), Unown (Unknown) would fit into this. It's the fact that there are more than a few that makes it unnotable.
The Muk trivia states its similarity between Garbodor and Weezing because all three come from a type of pollution. The Lapras Trivia discusses how it is one of the few Gen I pokemon to not have an evolution five generations on. --ForceFire 14:27, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, you are absolutely right, I was wrong. TheBlazikenMaster (talk) 17:33, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Japanese Name Origin

How is Golonya in any way a combination of Golem and stone? There is no ニャ in ストーン. --Vanya (talk) 07:17, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

I'd probably agree... I'd wager this is just a case of cultural bias, trying to bring the English name into the Japanese one when the Japanese has a totally sufficient and independent option. Tiddlywinks (talk) 09:12, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
