Using its amazing muscles, it throws powerful punches that can knock its victim clear over the horizon.
In Japan, this card was 1 of 5 that could be obtained as part of the Communication Evolution Campaign, which began in April 1999. Participants who mailed an Machoke card along with a copy of Bill's PC to MediaFactory during the campaign period would in turn receive copy of this card in the mail. It was later reprinted in Pokémon Web. The English version of the card was available through Pokémon Leagues in February 2002.
The requirement of Bill's PC for the campaign led to the 5 available cards to become known colloquially as Masaki promos in reference to Bill's Japanese name.
Cards from the Extended Sheets are printed on glossy card stock, while those distributed as part of the Communication Evolution Campaign are printed on regular card stock.
