Golett is a bipedal, clay Pokémon constructed in the ancient past to protect a civilization of people and Pokémon. There are two different shades of blue throughout its appearance. It has a head with a cyan-colored "fin" on top of its head, and two bewitching, yellow eyes. Around its spherical body are brown straps, which meet at a blue square with a yellow swirl in the center. It has four large stones, two on its arms and two acting as its feet. Golett burns energy inside itself in order to move. This energy causes Golett to release light through the holes near its arms and legs. However, no one has identified this energy.
Golett has proven itself to be an extremely powerful Pokémon, easily overwhelming Lyra's more experienced Bayleef before being beaten. It has the ability Iron Fist, which powers up its punching attacks dramatically.
