Despite what I've been told, I believe Smogons Tier listing is based on usage as well as over all viability. Which is fine and dandy, really, it is. However some pokemon need to be delved deeper in to I think. Golurk, is definitely one of them. Iron fist along with his wide range of "-punch" moves is quite threatening. Coupled with Based 124 attack, it's nothing to scoff at. Learning all three elemental punches, drain punch, an amazingly scary focus punch, the risky dynamic punch, and STAB shadow punch. That alone is pretty scary if used correctly. However, once you move on to his dream world ability, things only get more horrifying. With No guard, he gets a guaranteed Dynamic punch off. Confusing and hindering your pokemon right off the bat. No other pokemon can do that but Machamp. Who has the same base speed, a slightly better attack stat, (we're talking 6 points) 1 more base HP, and 5 more in SpDef, and a better SpAtt stat (that no one uses). However, Machamp is 2 tiers above this monster. Yes, Machamp gets STAB Dpunch. However, all Golurk needs is land one Dpunch and spam SE or STAB Earthquake respectively, maybe setting up SR in the process. The only argument I've received is his middling speed, which, I agree with, however, if that is the case why is Machamp so high. I just want to see what everyone else thinks of this beast still being in NU.
