Machamp #068


Machamp is a humanoid Pokémon with four powerful arms. It has light yellow lips and bluish-gray skin. There are three brown ridges above its eyes on its head. It has two arms on each side of its body, one in the regular position and one above that connects to the top of the shoulders. It bears black markings similar to underwear and wears a golden power-save belt similar to a championship belt. It has strong muscles in its legs and two toes on each foot.

Machamp are believed to be knowledgeable about every martial arts system in the globe. It punches extraordinarily fast, unleashing 500 punches per second. It can move a mountain with only one hand. Strength was Generation VII’s trademark move. Its four arms allow it to attack from a variety of angles and pin all of its opponent’s limbs down at once. Its limbs also enable it to strike and protect at the same time. Machamp’s four arms respond more quicker than he can think. However, it lacks dexterity and cannot do delicate tasks without getting its arms tangled. The belt it wears limits its muscular action, but removing it might have repercussions. Vital Throw was Generation II’s hallmark move.

Machamp, which evolved via commerce, is seldom encountered in the wild, yet they may be discovered in the highlands.

It expands to huge sizes and gains unfathomable power as Gigantamax Machamp. Its arms are packed with Gigantamax energy as a result of Gigantamaxing, making its punches as powerful as bomb explosions. Its bluish-gray skin darkens. The ridges on its head have darkened as well, with the center ridge becoming longer. Its eyes become a brilliant yellow. The black marks on the neck expand. The four fists have become a dark orange color, with orange-yellow veins linking them to two orange spots on each arm. Several additional notches are added to the belt. The black lines have now spread down the legs, stopping just before the ankles. Three crimson clouds form a ring around its waist.

The only Pokémon known to be capable of utilizing the G-Max Move G-Max Chi Strike is Gigantamax Machamp.
