Is Machoke…

The most human-like Pokémon? Telme 18:26, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

I'd say so. Closest to a human as I've ever seen a Pokémon. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 18:30, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, you could make an argument for Hitmonchan and Mr. Mime The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 18:55, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
Jynx is also quite a good competitor. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 19:11, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
Before we go any further, I have to ask. Does this actually have anything to do with the article? The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 19:12, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
No, unless Telme thought of adding that as a piece of trivia. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 19:15, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Um?

Machoke does appear in platinum. Route 210 I found it. --Lustre 06:34, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

The Hulk

Hey, is it me, or does its shiny form sorta look like The Hulk? Would this be worthy of being trivia? - Gold Dialga

It's just you, and no. R.A. Hunter Blade 23:17, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
I think it looks like Hulk too, so its not just him. --Mattii 00:17, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
Still, no sprite trivia. Gliscorguy54 00:24, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
A better rule of thumb is "no opinionated comparisons". —darklordtrom 07:06, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Belt

Would it be worth mentioning in the trivia that it appears to have a Championship belt around it's waist? - TiTAn 12:45, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Scrap that it's in the physiology section - TiTAn 12:49, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Family Guy in Trivia

In Family Guy Episode "April In Quahog", A superhero that strongly resembles Machoke is seen depicted on a poster in Chris's room. I don't think that's notable or well-written, but I don't want to start an edit war, however. So...any thoughts? Wolf 18:49, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Well, I actually watched the episode, and I do agree that there is a heavy resemblance of it, right down to the colors. I think it's notable enough to keep. Jello 19:03, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Name's origin

The trivia section mentions this: "Machoke's name may be a combination of macho, which is Spanish for overly masculine or chauvinist...". This statement is wrong, in spanish the word "macho" means just "male" and nothing else.<<godshawk>> 22:05, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
