Where to Find an Alpha Golem in Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set in olden times in the Pokemon world when it was rare to find harmony between people and Pokemon. Set in Hisui, modern-day Sinnoh, you will join the Galaxy Expedition Team (Galaxy Team for short) as a member of the Survey Corps stationed in Jubilife Village. You will be tasked to meet every Hisui Pokemon species to complete the region’s first-ever Pokédex.

In the game, some Pokemon appear larger than their regular counterparts with glowing red eyes, which means they are filled with Wild Might, which increases their stats, reduces the damage they receive from status conditions, and increases combat capabilities all over the Hisui region. These Pokemon are called Alpha Pokemon

This guide will teach you where to find an Alpha Golem in Pokemon Legends: Arceus!

Alpha Pokemon

The Alpha Pokemon will always be at a higher level than their regular counterparts. They will always be aggressive once they notice the player (except for Mantyke and Mantine) and will never run away (except when the type of Alpha Pokemon appears during a certain time of day or if a Space-Time Distortion appears around them). Alpha Pokemon will roar and release a shockwave once they notice the player, and if the player is close enough, the player may get staggered and knocked to the ground for a short while.

The player can catch Alpha Pokemon, regardless of the Alpha Pokemon’s level, by battling with it and then eventually throwing a Poke Ball. The player, however, can catch Alpha Pokemon without battling by sneaking around the Alpha Pokemon in the tall grass or by using stealth items and then throwing a Poke Ball; however, the player cannot do this if the player’s current obedience level is significantly lower than the Alpha Pokemon’s level.

Additionally, suppose the player has a hard time catching an Alpha Pokemon. In that case, the player can increase the catch rate of catching an Alpha Pokemon by raising the player’s Star Rank (the player’s Survey Corps rank), which can be done by completing Research Tasks and talking to Professor Laventon in any of the Base Camps.

Three types of Alpha Pokemon can be found in the game: fixed Alpha Pokemon that will always spawn and can be found in certain areas of the game and will always be at a fixed level; random Alpha Pokemon, which may only appear once the player has quelled the area’s frenzied Noble Pokemon, and Alpha Pokemon in Massive Mass Outbreaks which can appear as a second wave in the same location as the first wave. 

As the other two are random, we will discuss fixed Alpha Pokemon, specifically an Alpha Golem.

Alpha Golem

Golem is a Rock and Ground type Megaton Pokemon that looks like a boulder and a tortoise with a spherical body covered by a tough shell of green-plated rocks, a brown head with red eyes, and a flat snout. Two pointed teeth are sticking out of the center of the shell, short brown arms have three claws each, and brown legs have four claws in the front and one claw in the back.

According to its Pokedex entry in the game, Golem’s rocklike shell sheds every year, and the discarded shell crumbles and regresses to the soil, which can be used and spread across fields to promote crop growth.

An Alpha Golem can be found in Bolderoll Ravine (south of Stonetooth Rows or north of Fabled Spring) in the Coronet Highlands and in the area mentioned at all times of the day and in every weather condition. The Alpha Golem found in this location is a Level 60 Pokemon.

It is recommended to sneak to the back of the Alpha Pokemon, using the tall grass or stealth items like Smoke Bombs, and throw the player’s Pokemon or Poke Ball on its back to catch it unawares, which assures that the player moves first in battle.

If you plan on distracting it with food before catching it, it is worth mentioning that Golem’s preferred food is Crunchy Salts.

Suppose you plan on battling a Golem first before catching it. In that case, it is worth noting that, as mentioned, Golem is a Rock and Ground-type Pokemon, which means it has a weakness to Fighting-type, Ground-type, Ice-type, Steel-type, and especially Grass-type and Water-type moves (super effective), a resistance to Fire-type, Flying-type, Normal type, Rock-type, and especially Poison-type moves (not very effective), and an immunity to Electric-type moves (no effect).

Aside from the Alpha Golem found in the Coronet Highlands, the regular, non-alpha Golem can also be found in Massive Mass Outbreaks in the Obsidian Fieldlands, Cobalt Coastlands, and Coronet Highlands.

Now that the player has an Alpha Golem, the player can try to use the Alpha Golem to complete other requests, missions, or Arceus’ tasks for the player to catch ‘em all!
