Machop (Japanese: ワンリキー Wanriky) is a Fighting-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Machoke starting at level 28, which evolves into Machamp when traded.

Biology

Machop is a humanoid, bipedal Pokémon that has gray skin. There are three brown ridges on top of its head, and it has large red eyes and relatively flat face. Its chest has three, thin, rib-like stripes on either side. Its feet appear to have no toes, while its hands have five fingers. It has a short, stubby tail. Machop's entire body is covered with muscles that will never tire or cramp. With these muscles, it can lift many times its own body weight.

Trivia

  • Before the release of the English versions of Pokémon Red and Blue, Machop was known as "Kara-Tee". This name is a corruption of karate, a fighting style.
  • Machop and its evolutions have been in all Japan-centric regional Pokédexes.

Origin

Machop appears to be based on a bodybuilder.

Name origin

Machop may be a combination of macho (Spanish and Portuguese for overly male or chauvinist) and chop. 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.

Wanriky is a combination of the on'yomi readings of 腕 wan (arm) and 力 riki (strength).
