Machamp (Japanese: カイリキー Kairiky) is a Fighting-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Machoke when traded. It is the final form of Machop.

Biology

Machamp is a bipedal, humanoid Pokémon with four well-muscled arms. Its skin is bluish gray, and it has red eyes and pale yellow lips. On its head, there are three, brown ridges right above its eyes. It has two arms on each side of its body: a pair located in the normal position, and another pair directly above that attaches on the top of the shoulders. It wears legless black tights along with a golden power-save belt. Its legs have considerable muscle tone, and its feet have two toes.

Machamp punches extremely fast, throwing five hundred punches a second. With only one hand, it can move a mountain. Because of its four arms, it can hit from a multitude of angles and pin all of its foe's limbs at once. However, it has poor dexterity, and cannot handle delicate work without its arms becoming tangled. It is a rash Pokémon that rushes into action without forethought. Machamp can be found living in the mountains.

A Machamp appeared in The Forest Champion!. It is the rival of Ash's Hawlucha and the previous champion of the forest where they lived. Machamp was tricked by a ruffian pair of Ursaring and Conkeldurr into having a rematch with Hawlucha, but when the two troublemakers interfered with their duel, Machamp took them out with a single move and called off the fight. Machamp was later seen watching Hawlucha agree to join Ash, promising to look after the forest in the Wrestling Pokémon's stead.

Minor appearances

Machamp first appeared in The Punchy Pokémon competing in the P1 Grand Prix.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Blue's Machamp

Machamp first appeared in Tauros the Tyrant where a Team Rocket Grunt used it in an attempt to catch Green.

In A Tale of Ninetales Blue has a Machamp that evolved from Machoke when it was under Red's ownership, reflecting Machoke's evolution being triggered by trade. It was later seen in A Charizard...and a Champion, fighting Red's Snorlax at Indigo Plateau, blocking its attacks and even managing to lift its huge bulk, then proceeding to hurl it straight into the arena floor and then nearly knocking it out of bounds. Ultimately, Machamp was beaten after Snorlax came back with an aerial Double-Edge, its health level reduced to a third. Blue states he doesn't even need to look at his Pokédex to see its health level (as included was also a Toxic attack), and calls it back to his ball.

Another Machamp appeared in Can You Diglett? as a silhouette when Agatha and Lorelei explains to Red about how Pokémon and people can't coexist with each other.

Two years later, in Make Way for Magikarp, Bruno has a Machamp that, unlike all other Machoke who evolve from trade in this manga, kept on its power-absorbing belt to be used later, and with this power it defeats Red's Poli before Vee defeats it as a Jolteon using Pin Missile. It briefly returns in the HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter to participate in a Pokéathlon match against Gold.

Machamp was also one of the Pokémon used by Chuck against Blue's Rhydon in Entranced by Entei.

Blue later brings Machamp to the Sevii Islands in PS273, in which Machamp makes extremely short work of Red's Snorlax during the training session on Two Island with a combination of Seismic Toss and Low Kick, the latter targeting Snorlax's extremely heavy weight, as Blue always deemed the attack perfect for the megaton beast.

Trivia

  • In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Machamp was originally known as "Ju-Doh". This name is a corruption of judo, a fighting style.
  • In Pokémon Yellow, a NPC will trade a Machoke for Cubone, which will then evolve to Machamp. This is the only time an NPC trade will result in an evolution in a game released outside of Japan.
    • Including games released in Japan, it is one of three trades that will result in an evolution.
  • Machamp could be seen as a counterpart to Alakazam. They are both the last stage of a three-part evolutionary family, both were introduced in Generation I, they reach their final stage by trading, and they both have a 75% male gender ratio. Also, Alakazam excels at the Special Attack stat, while Machamp excels at Attack. Moreover, a girl in Oreburgh City will trade her Abra in exchange for a Machop.
    • Machamp also can be seen as a counterpart to the Conkeldurr evolutionary line. Both of them are Fighting-type Pokémon whose Attack is their highest stat. They both have below average speed. They share the same base stat total. They both have same gender ratio, they both have three-evolutionary stages, and they both reach their respective final-evolutionary stage through trading.

Origin

Machamp appears to be based on a bodybuilder or wrestler. Seeing as it has more than two arms and blue skin, Machamp might also be based on a Hindu god, perhaps Shiva or Vishnu.

Name origin

Machamp may be a combination of macho (Spanish for overly masculine or chauvinist) and champion. Macho has come to mean tough or masculine in English. Akin to Mr. Mime, the masculine attribute has no reflection on gender assignment, as both species can be male and female; however, Machop's evolutionary line does have a 3:1 male:female ratio, making the species predominantly—but not entirely—male. The name may also incorporate the term Mach, referring to the high speeds at which Machamp can dole out its powerful punches.

Kairiky is a corruption of 怪力 kairiki (superhuman strength). It is worth noting that kairiki is the Japanese name of Strength.
