Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Rock Throw is generally Golem’s best fast move, due to STAB and type advantage. This move gives Golem a niche over the otherwise superior Rhydon.

  • Mud Slap and the legacy move Mud Shot are roughly on par with each other.

  • Stone Edge is on par with Rock Blast. Stone Edge has higher peak damage output but will perform worse if Golem faints with a partially charged bar.

  • Earthquake is best paired with either of Golem's Ground-type fast moves.

  • Ancient Power is a legacy move that is significantly inferior to the aforementioned charge moves in every way.

Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Rock Throw is on par with Mud Slap. The former has less defensive DPS but better type coverage.

  • Mud Shot is a legacy move that is clearly inferior to the aforementioned fast moves.

  • Rock Blast is arguably superior to Stone Edge due to having more charge bars to work with. Golem may not be able to get off a Stone Edge against its best counters.

  • Ancient Power is slightly inferior to Rock Blast. It's more easily reactable and has longer cooldown, but it does more damage.

  • Earthquake is arguably Golem’s worst charge move. It has all of Stone Edge's problems while also being easily dodged.

Rating Explanation:

Golem is well known by now as a legendary bird killer, being one of the few good Rock-type attackers in Pokemon GO. It benefits from strong stats, excellent moves, and a specialized typing. Even outside of its performance in tier 5 raids, Golem boasts strong match ups against many other raid bosses, often excelling in DPS, bulk, or both.

On defense, Golem has some hard-hitting attacks, but a pair of cripping weaknesses to the Grass and Water-types severely hamstring its performance. In some locations, Golem may be an infrequent sight in gyms as a potential source of candy via berry-feeding.
