Golem is the most useless evovle-thru-trade poke, right?

Yeah pretty much. You'd think after 6 gens of it being worthless they'd give it a buff.

The Sturdy buff in Gen 5? And in Gen 6, Golem had its base attack increased from 110 to 120.

And Golem was far from worthless in Gen 1 and 2.

Phantump lvl 1 is better to WT


I'd have to breed those, not sit in victory road throwing Quickballs.

Now we are here we know it's too late! Today we hope to find some closure!
Silently waiting, do you hear a calling? Look into the wanting eyes, I'm still here!

AV Golem was surprisingly effective when I used it. WP Golem can surprise with rock polish, but Ryperior does it better.

You just wasted three seconds reading this, and another five seconds thinking about it afterwards.

Well if you happen to save lets say a Raichu for last in a 1 vs one battle and the opponent has a Golem and you happen to not have surf or focus blast or at least grass knot or signal beam. Prepare for a funeral.

Huntail.

That one requires an item to evolve, though. Not the best for TC's intended Wonder Trade shenanigans.

Good for a trick room team and can withstand plenty of priority attacks since most are physical in nature?
Or just good to last long enough for Explosion?

I don't know, but either way it has Rock Head and yet can't even learn Head Smash. I guess it makes some sort of sense since no neck = no headbutt but come on!

quite sad. i mean, it looks really cool unlike Geodude and Graveler. it could even pass for being Dragon type with that head and claws yet learn none compared to Altaria.

This is the internet. You know the price it comes with when you have entered the filth and scum of this world.

If you were breeding/genning, I'd say to give out steadfast female modest machoke with attract, fire blast, focus blast, and incinerate nicknamed (S)HE-MAN MotU

Or, just make it male and nickname it JUNKTHRUST and WT them freely.
