Machoke (Japanese: ゴーリキー Goriky) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Machop starting at level 28, and evolves into Machamp when traded.

Biology

Physiology

Machoke appear as larger, tailless Machop with red marks along their muscular arms. Their faces are more reptilian than before. The marks actually look like places where the skin has stretched apart because it can barely contain its huge muscles. Machoke wear black wrestling tights for better movement and a large, golden belt with a little red P on the buckle.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Machoke are Pokémon of immense strength. In fact, they are so strong that even with the power-save belt they constantly wear they are able to lift a sumo wrestler.

Behavior

Strong and capable, Machoke helps people with labor.

Habitat

Machoke live in mountains, in foreboding areas where they can hone their skills. They can also be found in urban areas, as they are often employed for manual labor.

Pokédex entries

This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation I.
Generation I
Red Its muscular body is so powerful, it must wear a power-save belt to be able to regulate its motions.
Blue
Yellow The belt around its waist holds back its energy. Without it, this Pokémon would be unstoppable.
Stadium Although it is incredibly strong, it is always modest. It restrains its strength with a power-save belt.
Generation II

Stadium 2 It always goes at its full power, but this very tough and durable Pokémon never gets tired.
Generation III
Ruby Machoke's thoroughly toned muscles possess the hardness of steel. This Pokémon has so much strength, it can easily hold aloft a sumo wrestler on just one finger.
Sapphire Machoke undertakes bodybuilding every day even as it helps people with tough, physically demanding labor. On its days off, this Pokémon heads to the fields and mountains to exercise and train.

Trivia

  • "Kung-Foo" was Machoke's prototype name.
  • In "Le guide officiel des Pokémon", the French-Canadian version of The Official Pokémon Handbook, Machoke is described as having a selfish personality ; "Machoke,[...]loves too much his body. Often, he looks himself in a mirror instead of training[...]" ,which is exactly the opposite of the description given in Pokémon Stadium; "Although it is incredibly strong, it is always modest[...]".
  • Incidentally, Machoke appears in the anime to have a greenish skin pigment, while it keeps a purple color in the games and in Ken Sugimori's official artwork.

Origin

Machoke appears to be based on a bodybuilder or wrestler with some reptilian traits.

Name origin

Machoke's name may be a combination of choke, as in chokehold, and macho, which is Spanish for overly masculine or chauvinist. Macho has come to mean tough or masculine in English. Like Mr. Mime, this is not reflected in the gender distribution. Goriky is a corruption of 剛力 gōriki, herculean strength.

In other languages

  • German: Maschok
  • French: Machopeur - From Macho and chopeur (someone who "nabs" people) or peur (fear).
  • Korean: 근육몬 Geunyukmon
  • Chinese: 豪力 - "Heroic strength".
