Summary

Golem is one of the four traded evolutions introduced in Gen 1. It is a Rock/Ground type Pokémon that seems to be loosely based off of a tortoise. It is evidently named after the Jewish mythological creature. It is famous for things like exploding and rolling down mountains, along with its incredible strength and durability. Like it's fellow traded evolutions from that generation, its first form evolves into its second at level 25, and then into its final form, as aforementioned, by trading. It has an Alolan variant that's Rock/Electric, and has elements of the mineral magnetite and the weapon known as a railgun intertwined in it, and is known to fire electrically charged rocks.
