in adv uu golem was really popular for a long time but at some point people realized there is practically no reason to use it over omastar, solrock, lunatone, and even the not-that-great-either aggron. unless you are using it on an incredibly fast paced team, or you can support it consistently with reflect and wishes from hypno, kangaskhan is too much for it and granbull's no slouch either. the rse analysis onsite recommends restalk golem but that is utter shit. if you are going to use an offensively impotent restalking normal resistance you may as well have it set up spikes (omastar). i really do not remember the last time i felt inclined toward putting golem on an adv uu team.
it does well enough against the likes of fearow i guess, provided you have something else to handle kangaskhan, and it does have a pretty powerful earthquake/double-edge/explosion, particularly with a cb tacked onto it. has a lot of trouble with gligar and solrock regardless and they're everywhere. counter can take kangaskhan by surprise. i guess golem can be kind of helpful against pinsir??? i dunno it is kind of worthless no matter how you look at it, but way too good for NU where even relicanth is a major rascal.
<&spies> FUCK i just SNEEZED and made a MESS
