Someone down voting MovesetBot again...
could they not read MovesetBot's wall? Orange Gaimer said on MovesetBot's wall "trachy said not to downvote Movesetbot lol."
Yes. I remember trachy commented on a moveset question saying it.

Golem-Alola @ Air Balloon
Ability: Galvanize
EVs: 252 Atk, 4 Def, 252 Spe
Nature: Jolly
- Rock Blast/Stone Edge
- Double-Edge/Return
- Earthquake
- Autotomize

Air Balloon gives you temporary safety from those x4 Super Effective Ground-type Moves, allowing you to set up an Autotomize. Rock Blast is for if you want to break through Sturdy & Focus Sash Pokemon, while Stone Edge is just plain powerful. Double-Edge & Return are your Electric STAB thanks to Galvanize, while Earthquake is coverage.

Why Autotomize? I prefer Rock Polish because it doesn't increase or decrease your weight. If your weight gets decreased, Heavy Slam will do more damage to you. That's why.
Because many more Pokemon get Grass Knot & Low Kick than Heavy Slam. Besides, the only Pokemon that get Heavy Slam and are a major threat to this set are Golurk, Mudsdale, Dhelmise, Guzzlord, Donphan, & Steelix. That's why.

Alolan Golem
Golem-Alola (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Galvanize
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Earthquake
- Return / Explosion
- Rock Slide
- Stealth Rock / Explosion

We've all seen what Kanto Golem. But have you seen what ALOLAN Golem can do?

For one thing, it's ability Galvanize allows it to abuse Return. If you do not know what I mean then max Return base power: 102, but with Galvanize it becomes 122.4 -- that's basically as strong as Solar Beam without the need to charge! Stealth Rock is just well, for the sake of using stealth rock, which it can use because of its bulk. Rock Slide for STAB, and Earthquake because why not. Unfortunately, even with these things, it can easily be countered due to its low speed and bad typing which causes other earthquake users to KO it even with physical bulk. Explosion for last resort, plus: 250 * 1.2 = 375 Base Power!
