Machop #066

Biology

Machop is a bipedal humanoid Pokémon with blue-gray skin. Its head features three brown ridges, huge red eyes, and a somewhat flat face. Three narrow, rib-like stripes run along each side of its chest. It seems to have no toes on its feet and five fingers on its hands. Machop has a small, stubby tail as well.

Machop has muscles all throughout his body that never fatigue or cramp. It can lift several times its own body weight with these muscles. Machop has the ability to hurl up to 100 adults. It works out every day by lifting Graveler and grows more committed as its muscles expand. Machop’s muscles will never get sore, no matter how much exercise it receives. It spends its time and energy training various martial arts and attempting to better its talents. When it is confident, it challenges Makuhita to a fight. Machop is a mountain dweller. Vital Throw was Generation II’s hallmark move.
