With yet another unique typing (are you seeing a pattern here?), Gobitto and Goruugu's Ground/Ghost combo give them three immunities to Normal, Fighting, and Electric. Goruugu is a pure physical attacker, and with its Iron Fist ability, Focus Punch is a must, which Gobitto learns at level 55 and Goruugu 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 Goruugu moveset.

According toGame Freak(viaBulbapedia), Gobitto and Goruugu are the first Pokemon ever to be designed by an American.
