Pokemon's First Appearance: Pokemon Red, Blue & Yellow

Similar to Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan is weakened, damaged normally by and is resistant to the same Pokemon and attacks. But where Hitmonchan differs is in its own attacks. Although they're primarily Fighting-based Hitmonchan can learn attacks such as Thunder Punch, Fire Punch, Ice Punch and Mega Punch, which gives it a little more variation on who it could possibly take out. Sure, Hitmonchan's base stat total isn't too great (455), but its assorted types of punches definitely helps.
