Soak is an interesting way to get past poison and steel types. Some porkemon however will still be able to shrug it off (with rest/heal bell).
I think the preferred ability on a-Golem is Galvanize.
Conkeldur I feel like is missing out on its niche, which is a powerful Mach Punch, and could be replaced with any reasonably strong pokemon without it.
Not sure what else about the team, I haven't battled much yet this gen.

Well for this set not really, I use it as more of a suicide lead, where it can set up rocks safely, if it has a a favorable match up it can then just explode/thunder punch to deal some good damage

I suppose, but using it for rocks makes it no different from standard Golem. I think Explosion prefers the Galvanize boost, but that's just from what I've been reading.

It's because standard golem is unavailable in the game.

If you have a suicide lead you should probably run Hyper offense since your team does not really appreciate having rocks up considering that your only wallbreaker is tapu lele and conk. Completely remove pyukumuku as he only saps away your momentum and is complete set up bait for SubDance/Coil Zygarde, use a set up sweeper like Mega gyarados or Mega charizard for example. Change your suicide lead to something more viable like focus sash SD+Stealth rock garchomp but if you want to use golem keep sturdy and add an mental herb so you are
guaranteed your rocks. If you insist on having a slow tank change the Dhelmise to an Choice band set or use a more quick tank like Kyurem-B or Azumarill with either Belly Drum or choice band or even mega mawlie.Lele can stay the same but maybe use twisted spoon instead of life orb. If you run Hyper offense or Bulky offense you should have a "glue" or quick revenge killer to get back momentum perfect pokemon for this would be choice scarf latios or choice scarf landorus. For the rest of the pokemon you can either keep them the same or use a faster/stronger alternative. If you want to use a more defensive type balance then scarp the golem and use spikes ferrothorn and instead of pyukumuku use toxapex who is basically the stronger alternative and provides toxic spikes, you can keep the rest of the pokemon the same but maybe use an defiant pokemon like bisharp who appreciates the +2 att from defog. Hope this Helps -Rash
