Golem (ゴーレム, Gōremu) is a dual Rock/Ground-type Megaton Pokémon that is the evolved form of Graveler when holding a Protector. It is also the final evolved form of Geodude.


Voice actor: Eric Stuart (both English and Japanese)

Golem is a turtle-like bipedal Pokémon with plated, green rocks as its shell. Golem grows bigger by shedding its skin once a year. The discarded shell immediately hardens when exposed to air, crumbling away and returning to the soil. Golem has a head protruding out of the center of the shell, short arms that have three claws, and two legs with five-clawed feet that have four claws in front and one in back. It has red eyes and a flat snout with two pointed teeth in its lower jaw. Its height is 4'07" and weight is 661.4 lbs.

Gender differencesEdit


Special abilitiesEdit

The anime has shown that Golem is able to withdraw its head, arms, and legs into its shell and roll at high speeds. Golem is dangerous when doing this, as it is unable to see and may crash into or run over anything in its path. To prevent it from rolling into the homes of people downhill, grooves are dug into the sides of the mountains to divert the rolling Golem’s course. Golem’s body is so hard that even dynamite cannot scratch it.



Golem is seldom seen in the wild. However, it can be found living in mountainous regions.
