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 toGame Freak(viaBulbapedia), Golett and Golurk are the first Pokemon ever to be designed by an American.
