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

Machamp is sheer brute force at its finest in the Pokemon series. It's the Goro of Pokemon, and uses some of the series' most powerful attacks to take down its opponents. Similar to Hitmonchan, Machamp has his own set of punches that aren't solely Fighting-based. It could deal some damage to those weak against Ice attacks with Ice Punch, and it could deal some damage to those weak against Fire attacks with Fire Punch. And to top it all off Machamp has a base stat total of 505. Sure, it's weak against the same Pokemon types and attacks as Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee. but Machamp could still hold its own against a lot of Pokemon.
