This Pokémon is so muscular and strongly built that even a group of wrestlers could not make it budge an inch.
Sword It shows off its muscles to Machoke and other Gurdurr. If it fails to measure up to the other Pokémon, it lies low for a little while.
Shield Gurdurr excels at demolition—construction is not its forte. In any case, there’s skill in the way this Pokémon wields its metal beam.
