'''Golurk''' (Japanese: '''ゴルーグ''' ''Goruugu'') is a {{Type|Ground}}/{{Type|Ghost}}-[[Types|type]] [[Pokémon (species)|Pokémon]] introduced in [[Generation V]]. One is used in game by the [[Unova]] [[Elite Four]] member, [[Shauntal]].
+
===Physiology===
  +
Golurk is an enormous bipedal golem-like automaton with ethereal ghostly powers. Its bulky, heavily armored body appears to be composed of a teal-bluish rocky material; it also appears to be wearing knight-like armor. It has a small head with a spike-like formation at the tip and two yellow eyes (one of which is L-shaped). Its relatively small head is attached to a great round torso. It has a large glowing fissure across its chest, which is stitched closed by a brown band. It has a cylindrical tasset-like formation just beneath its torso, and thick, heavy legs with brown bands encircling its ankles just above its massive feet. Its arms are long, thick and powerfully-built; its shoulders are round with spines protruding from either side, and it has massive five-fingered hands with brown bands encircling its wrists. It has diamond shaped features with glowing yellow swirls on the front of its hands, and identical swirled patterns on its shoulders.
  +
  +
===Special Abilities===
  +
Golurk is extremely powerful; it is in fact so powerful that it must have a seal on its chest to keep its internal energy from leaking out, causing it to lose control. Golurk are known as ancient protectors of people and Pokémon. It can [[Fly]], using rocket-like propulsion, to move at Mach speeds.
