In Panic in the Park!, while trying to stop a fight that broke out between the other Pokémon during a food shortage, the seal on Golurk's chest was knocked off, causing it to go berserk. Ash and Goh kept Golurk distracted while Skwovet, Farfetch'd, Cubone, and Pidgey put the seal back on. It then helped protect the Cascoon from the flood caused by its rampage, allowing them to evolve into Dustox.
In JN135, Golurk joined the rest of Goh's Pokémon at the lab to celebrate their Trainer's return from the lastmission of Project Mew. In JN136, it attended a surprise party hosted by the Lab members commemorating Goh and Ash's departure. After that, it posed for a group photo with Goh, Ash, and the others.
Despite its considerable size and strength, it is a gentle giant outside of battle, as seen during its interactions with some of Goh's other Pokémon at the Cerise Laboratory, and doesn't seem to mind the other Pokémon resting on it while it is relaxing. In Restore and Renew!, Golurk was shown to be mindful of its own strength, heaving a large boulder out of the way for Goh and the others before gently fitting a much smaller stone between its fingertips to examine it for fossils. If the seal on its chest is removed, its energy runs wild, with the energy's color turning from yellow to red as it rampages. While on a rampage, it can cause significant damage to its surroundings, and cause torrential rainfall, just like the move Rain Dance.
It also shows a desire to protect Pokémon, as shown when it protected Goh's three Cascoon that were about to get hit with an Overheat attack from Darmanitan.
On November 6, 2020, as part of Pokémon GO's Animation Week 2020 event, which was based on Pokémon Journeys: The Series, several Pokémon based on those that Ash and Goh encountered in the anime appeared more frequently in the wild, in raids, from 7 km Eggs, and during surprise encounters, with Golurk appearing only in level 3 raids. The event ran from November 6, 2020, at 8:00 a.m., to November 12, 2020, at 10:00 p.m. local time.
