Pokemon Black and White Pokedex - Golett, Golurk

Species classification: Automaton Pokemon
Iron Fist – Increases power of punching moves by 20%
Klutz – Disables the effect of user's held items (except for EXP affecting items)
Dream World ability: No Guard – Raises move accuracy to 100% for all Pokemon in battle 
Location found (Black/White): Dragonspiral Tower
Wild hold items: Light Clay (rare)
Egg groups: Mineral
Capture rate: 190

Evolution family: Golett > Golurk at level 43

With yet another unique typing (are you seeing a pattern here?), Golett and Golurk's Ground/Ghost combo give them three immunities to Normal, Fighting, and Electric. Golurk is a pure physical attacker, and with its Iron Fist ability, Focus Punch is a must, which Golett learns at level 55 and Golurk learns at level 70. Even though it doesn't get a STAB, Focus Punch's base power of 150 plus the 20% Iron Fist bonus make it a good choice for any Golurk's moveset. 

According to Game Freak (via Bulbapedia), Golett and Golurk are the first Pokemon ever to be designed by an American.

    This one's awesome. He's based on both Golems and Gundams. It's a good mix, and it's powerful, too.
