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

It evolves into Machoke starting at level 28, which evolves into Machamp when traded or when exposed to a Linking Cord (Pokémon Legends: Arceus).

Biology

Machop is a humanoid, bipedal Pokémon that has blue-gray skin. It has three brown ridges on top of its head, large red eyes, and a relatively flat face. On either side of its chest are three, thin, rib-like stripes. Its feet appear to have no toes, while its hands have five fingers. Machop also 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. Machop is capable of hurling up to 100 adults. It trains by lifting Graveler every day and becomes more dedicated the more its muscles grow. Machop's muscles can never get sore, no matter what training it does. It spends its time and energy practicing all different forms of martial arts and trying to improve its abilities. Once it feels confident, it challenges Makuhita to a battle. Machop lives in the mountains. In Generation II, Vital Throw was its signature move.

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.

Origin

Machop appears to be based on a bodybuilder. It also possesses some reptilian features such as its face, three plate-like crests on its head, a tail, and blue-gray coloration.

Name origin

Machop may be a combination of macho (manly; Spanish and Portuguese for male) and chop.

Wanriky may be derived from an alternate reading of 腕力 wanryoku (arm strength, physical strength).
