The moveset I have right now for my Golisopod is…

  • First Impression
  • Aqua jet
  • Liquidation
  • Sucker punch

And I was wondering if I should replace Sucker Punch with Leech Life.

What game are you asking about? What do you want to do with this Golisopod? Do you want to battle other people, in-game trainers, or something else?
Im Playing Ultra Sun, And its mainly for battling other players
Probably leech life, you already have two priority moves, both being stab.

Okay so, here we go:
Type of Move: Both Physical, which Golisopod is excellent in.
BP: Leech life with 80, plus it's STAB(Same Type Added Bonus), which adds 50%
Accuracy: Tied
PP: Leech Life with 10
Sucker Punch does have Priority though, which is helpful with his low speed.

Special Effects: Leech Life wins, as Sucker Punch's Effect is actually bad, and Leech Life heals, which can be helpful to counteract it's bad ability Emergency Exit, plus if it's holding a big root, the health regen can be boosted, the only downside is with Liquid Ooze Pokemon, Tentacool and Tentacruel(Gulpin Line's not in Gen 7).

Typing effectiveness in general: Sucker Punch

So, when you add all this together, combined with the fact that there's still 3 other slots and plenty of Dark moves that it can learn through TM or Tutor, I'd go with Leech Life.

Source: A lot of cross referencing between the Type Chart, and the two Moves.
