|Golem did not originate from fanon, and the information on this page may not be entirely accurate to their canon. You may read more about this subject in the context of their canon on the following wiki(s):|
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. As shown in the Pocket Monsters Carddass Trading Cards Golem's shell is hollow.
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.
Super Mario Bros.: Pokémon Odyssey
A Golem will appear as an Enemy Character in Super Mario Bros.: Pokémon Odyssey. What his exact role is, is currently unknown.
Pokémon Iron and Amber
Golem is a catchable pokémon along with the other 491 species of Pokémon.
He's one of the victims of the Kirthar's Snap Finger.
- In Generation I, Golem was the only Pokémon that could not be seen without trading. However, its existence was implied by a non-player character who had just received his friend's Graveler. Venusaur (if the player started with Charmander), either Kabutops or Omastar and Magmar in Pokémon Red and Electabuzz in Pokémon Blue would also be missing, but only Golem was definite.
- In the Japanese version of Pokémon Blue, this isn't true as there is an in-game trade for a Graveler.
