Golem

Red
Blue
Its boulder-like body is extremely hard. It can easily withstand dynamite blasts without damage.
Yellow Once it sheds its skin, its body turns tender and whitish. Its hide hardens when it’s exposed to air.
Gold It sheds its skin once a year. The discarded shell immediately hardens and crumbles away.
Silver It is capable of blowing itself up. It uses this explosive force to jump from mountain to mountain.
Crystal Its rock-like body is so durable, even high-powered dynamite blasts fail to scratch its rugged hide.
Ruby GOLEM live up on mountains. If there is a large earthquake, these POKéMON will come rolling down off the mountains en masse to the foothills below.
Sapphire GOLEM is known for rolling down from mountains. To prevent them from rolling into the homes of people downhill, grooves have been dug into the sides of mountains to serve as guideways for diverting this POKéMON’s course.
FireRed It is enclosed in a hard shell that is as rugged as slabs of rock. It sheds skin once a year to grow larger.
LeafGreen Its boulder-like body is extremely hard. It can easily withstand dynamite blasts without taking damage.
Emerald It is said to live in volcanic craters on mountain peaks. Once a year, it sheds its hide and grows larger. The shed hide crumbles and returns to the soil.
Diamond It sheds its hide once a year. Its boulderlike body is so tough, even dynamite can’t harm it.
Pearl It tumbles down mountains, leaving grooves from peak to base. Stay clear of these grooves.
Platinum Even dynamite can’t harm its hard, boulderlike body. It sheds its hide just once a year.
HeartGold It sheds its skin once a year. The discarded shell immediately hardens and crumbles away.
SoulSilver It is capable of blowing itself up. It uses this explosive force to jump from mountain to mountain.

Omega Ruby Golem live up on mountains. If there is a large earthquake, these Pokémon will come rolling down off the mountains en masse to the foothills below.
Alpha Sapphire Golem is known for rolling down from mountains. To prevent them from rolling into the homes of people downhill, grooves have been dug into the sides of mountains to serve as guideways for diverting this Pokémon’s course.
Sun Its body can survive dynamite blasts without a single scratch, but it hates rain and humidity.
Moon Once a year, this Pokémon molts, and its shed shell returns to the soil. This process creates enriched soil, so farmers collect the shells.
Ultra Sun When Golem grow old, they stop shedding their shells. Those that have lived a long, long time have shells green with moss.
Ultra Moon It detonates its own body. The power from that explosion can propel it up steep mountain paths with amazing speed.

Once it sheds its skin, its body turns tender and whitish. Its hide hardens when it’s exposed to air.

Alolan Golem

Sun It fires rocks charged with electricity. Even if the rock isn’t fired that accurately, just grazing an opponent will cause numbness and fainting.
Moon Because it can’t fire boulders at a rapid pace, it’s been known to seize nearby Geodude and fire them from its back.
Ultra Sun It’s grumpy and stubborn. If you upset it, it discharges electricity from the surface of its body and growls with a voice like thunder.
Ultra Moon It shoots large rocks that are charged with electricity. Tremendous electric shocks are flung out across the whole area of impact.
Let's Go Pikachu
Let's Go Eevee
It uses magnetism to accelerate and fire off rocks tinged with electricity. Even if it doesn’t score a direct hit, the jolt of electricity will do the job.
