The true Wukong? Without the Flying Nimbus? I mean, when was the last time he used that?

It hasn't been seen once since then, right? That's my point. Goku doesn't need it anymore. So he has no reason to use it and therefore won't. So he won't become Wukong because without having both the Ruyi Jingu Bang and the Kintoun, he's no Wukong.

Edit: Now that I think of it, maybe we can say he's Sun Wukong since he at least owns the Ruyi Jingu Bang and the Kintoun. And he may not have the former anymore but he does have the latter (even though he doesn't use it). It's also a fact that his name "Son Goku" is based off of that of Sun Wukong's own Japanese version.

Wasn't Gohan using Nimbus to go to school at the start of the Buu saga?

That was anime filler.

Gohan actually used the nimbus in the manga.
You see Gohan riding on the nimbus in 3 different occasion in volume 36.
1. When Gohan was on his way to school (just before he takes down the bank robbers)
2. On his way to Bulma's house after school
3. After receiving the Great Saiyaman suit from Bulma

Yeah, I also remember. I think he used the Nimbus to go to school and back home, mainly (aside from the other instances Noman mentioned). He probably wanted to conserve his energy and therefore chose to not fly.

for goku to true looks like wukong he would need to have a "SSJ4 form which make his looks really close to the real wukong, if him could get a ssj4 god version plus the staff plus the nimbus then withou any doubts he would really looks like the original wukong.

Goku being based on Sun Wukong kinda stopped mattering entirely when it was revealed he was actually an alien.

He's still based off of him. And both the Kintoun and the Ruyi Jingu Bang he was given still belong to him (in the case of the latter it's "technically").

Sun Wukong was a youkai that achieved Buddhahood. He basically became a god. Plus he was called the Victorious Fighting Buddha. Him being a warrior that attained Buddhahood is very similar to Goku's situation since he's a warrior with god powers.

I was only thinking that the UI should work pretty good with the Power Pole, of that it remembered me that Goku was based on Wukong.

You said "the UI should work pretty good with the UI". I think one of them should be the staff that can extend, the Ruyi Jingu Bang (that's its name in Journey to the West, but I don't remember the name it has in Dragonball).

Damn, mistake, Power Pole. I think the Power Pole would look and work pretty good with the UI.
