Once you do get your hands on a Pokémon in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, that is only half the battle with the other half being the battles themselves. When you get into a Pokémon battle, it is important to know the weaknesses of your Pokémon, and one of the Pokémon players might find themselves putting Golem in their party. I can clear up how these stats work and which ones you need to pay attention to. This guide will break down all of Golem’s Weaknesses in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
Golem’s Weaknesses in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
Golem is a Rock and Ground-type Pokémon, thus making it weak to a lot of different types, the number being six in total. Those types are Water, Grass, Ground, Fighting, Steel, and Ice. Luckily, The weaknesses of Water and Grass are the ones that players will need to look out for as they will do four times the regular damage to Golem. The other four weaknesses come out to do two times the regular damage against Golem.
While it is good to know Golem’s weaknesses to ensure he avoids those situations, it is just as important to also find Golem’s strengths. One of those strengths is that Golem is immune to Electric attacks. The Pokémon is also strong against its own type of Rock as well as Flying, Fire, Normal, and Poison types. The first four types listed in that list will do half damage against Golem, with Poison-type attacks doing even less damage at one-fourth of the regular output. This makes it very important that you know to use it against these types of Pokémon so that you know how to use Golem’s strengths and avoid his weaknesses.
