Trivia

  • "Kara-Tee" was Machop's original English name. This name is a corruption of karate, a fighting style.
  • Machop has the same in-game cry as Omanyte.
  • Machop and its evolutions have been in all regional Pokédexes.
  • Despite their species classifications, Machop and its evolutions could not learn Superpower until Pokémon Platinum, and even then, only by move tutor.
    • However, they have always been able to learn the move Strength, which shares its Japanese name with their species classification.
  • Despite having a tail, it cannot learn Iron Tail; this however, would be right as its evolution doesn't have a tail.
  • In Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, it's mentioned that Machop can control Aura into orbs. However, there doesn't seem to be a connection between Machop and Lucario (save for both being Fighting-types) and Machop can't legitimately have Aura Sphere in the games.
  • Machop is one of 5 Generation I Pokémon that had its base experience yield changed in Generation III. Its former base experience was 88. The others are Abra, Geodude, Omanyte, and Kabuto.
  • Although currently, like its evolutions, Machop's shiny form is green, in all games until Pokémon Crystal its normal form was green.

Origin

Machop appears to be based on a bodybuilder.

Name origin

Machop's name may be a combination of chop and macho, which is Spanish for overly male. Macho has come to mean tough or masculine in English. Like Mr. Mime, this is not reflected in the gender distribution (even though the females are still rarer than males). Wanriky is a corruption of 腕力 wanryoku (the 力 is pronounced riki in some words), physical strength.
