    Status: Placeholder (will really write, but just putting ideas down)


    • A lot better because Sturdy
    • Better than similar Pokemon because access to Sucker Punch

    [SET]
    name: Lead
    move 1: Rock Blast
    move 2: Earthquake
    move 3: Sucker Punch
    move 4: Stealth Rock / Counter / Explosion
    item: Leftovers / Lum Berry
    nature: Adamant
    ability: Sturdy
    EV: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spe

    ...

    [Dream World]

    Golem gets Sand Veil as a Dream World ability. This has drastically less value than Sturdy unless you are not using Golem as a lead and are not using any recoil moves that would prefer Rock Head.

    However, one great benefit that Golem gets from Dream World is Custap Berry, which should be the item of choice if it is allowed.

    maybe mention that Golem is the only mon who can abuse both Sand Veil and the 50% SpD boost from sand?
