#68: Machamp - Fighting Type

[PokeDex Entry]



The Superpower Pokémon

  • Ultra-sun: It grasps its opponents with its four arms and twists them up in an intricate hold. People call it “the Machamp special.”

    Moon: It can lift heavy loads with the greatest of ease. It can even heft dump trucks. But its clumsy fingers prevent it from doing any precision work.

    Alpha-sapphire: Machamp is known as the Pokémon that has mastered every kind of martial arts. If it grabs hold of the foe with its four arms, the battle is all but over. The hapless foe is thrown far over the horizon.

    Prof. Lotus' Notes: Machamp and Alakazam in the original Games could only be received through trading. Both these stage 2 Pokemon have a gender distribution of 75% male. I believe that his inspiration comes from Vishnu or Ganesh from Hinduism, on account of the blue skin and multiple arms.
