Gigalith because it looks cool :D sadly never got to try it out since I don't have 2 gen 5 games. :/ Still when first played Black and encountered a Roggenrola i was pretty excited and raised it quite a bit, sadly i found out it evolves to Gigalith trough trading...

Golurk, who's much cooler looking and has interesting attacks to utilize. Its typing is also neat, even if it leaves it with a lot of weaknesses.

Golurk! I find Gigalith more powerful and quite cool.
But it isn't Flying-Ancient-Golem-of-Sand-and-Phantoms cool.

Gigalith is one of my least favorite designs of 5th gen, so definitely Golurk. Never used either though.

I don't like either, but I voted that I liked Gigalith more.

However, I do believe that Golurk is a better choice competitively.

Golurk. My reason for that is if you're on your own, and don't have access to the internet you can obtain Golurk, but not Gigalith. Since Golurk is the Ground/Ghost type, it's immune to fighting, normal, and electric moves. More immunity is always a plus, Koff~

I voted for Golurk, I love its design better than Gigalith. I used it ingame before and it was a really good addition to my team, its movepool is great and even though it is a bit slow it can still battle pretty well.

I'm going to have to go with Golurk myself. I've always found its design and its type fascinating. I have used neither of these Pokemon so all I can really say are asthetics but I think if I used both of these sometime I would enjoy using Golurk more than I would Gigalith. To me it just seems like it would pack more of a punch. And I love its pre-evolution Golett.

Also it can fly. How cool is that.

Love Gigalithe The Rock was my second shiny in BW, but I love Golurk. Dude flys around, stealth rocks, and spin blocks, eq's and can sub punch. Gigalthe you explode.

I love both, they look awesome.
Battle wise I prefer Gigalith, since it has the Ability Sturdy.
My combo is to attach it with Normal Gem, uses Explode when the said Ability went activated, needs good prediction though.

I actually had both on my team near the end of White 1. In the end, I found Golurk to be much more useful than Gigalith. Gigalith fainted too much, although it makes a pretty good defense tank. I ended up giving up on Gigalith, becuase it's just too vulnerable to Special moves.

Golurk. Even though Gigalith has Sturdy... Yeah, not much is gonna survive two rounds with earthquake.

Then again, I've never used Golurk, so maybe I'm completely bonkers.

This is a very hard choice honestly. Golurk is a very good offensive Pokemon with a fantastic ability in No Guard. Although it will never miss, nothing will ever miss it. Under Trick Room, Golurk could demolish entire times with it's very broad movepool and ability. Gigalith on the other hand, is just a beast. Amazing attack and defense, horrible speed, and even though it does have a small movepool it can do what it needs to with what it's got.

Going toe-to-toe, who would win would really depend on whether or not Trick Room is up and also if Gigalith still has Sturdy active. With TR and Sturdy, Gigalith would easily win because he could just EQ twice and Golurk would go down. If Golurk isn't running Choice Band, it would be possible for Gigalith to tank an EQ from Golurk.

I would personally pick Golurk. It has a much broader movepool and quite a few more options than Gigalith does.

As long as these struggles are aimless, we will all be standing still.

Golurk is like in my top five favie-faves, so that's not even a contest! That said, I really like Gigalith, if only because the idea of a carbon-based crab thing is very appealing.

I would have to choose Golurk as I used it several times during my playthrough of the game and it is fantastic in Competitive Play.

I apologise for bumping a dead thread, but this is for the Around PC in Seven Days Challenge, related with the Get Together.

Gotta be Gigalith. I love him, even though I know Golurk is better in battle, I love his design much more than Golurk... He just looks so damn cool.

Golurk's a flying robot. Sorry, Gigalith, but Golurk has my vote.

I picked Gigalith because it looks really cool. In fact i've been a fan of its design since i first saw it, however the same goes for golurk as i've been a fan of it since it came out as well. Gigalith won out here simply because most people were voting against it and i felt bad for it. (in a way i'm glad i didn't have to actually go in depth and think about it before voting)

Holy crap, I made this thread! It doesn't seem like I ever posted my opinion, but I went with Golurk. I never found Gigalith to pack the punch that Golurk did, plus its design is a lot more interesting than a rock with a lot of spikes on it.

I prefer Gigalith. Its shiny is reaaaally cool-looking and it's actually one of the only rock types I actually like. Golurk is awesome without a doubt, too, plus it's part ghost which is just kickin', but Gigalith is too cool to be as underrated as it is.

Gigalith - because it's the fifth gen reincarnation of Golem without the cringeworthy ground / rock typing and better stat distribution. (says me.) Gravity and Wide Guard are fun to play around with too.

Go go gigalith!

Gigalith for me. I prefer its design, I think the fact that it evolves by trading is cool and I've had too many annoying experiences facing Golurks that use Shadow Sneak to form any kind of attachment to it lol
