Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Counter is Machamp’s optimal fast move.

  • Karate Chop’s lower power but higher energy gain keep it competitive when paired with Dynamic Punch.

  • Dynamic Punch is the superior Fighting-type charge move by a sizable margin.

  • Close Combat is viable, but if you need the extra DPS, roll for Dynamic Punch.

  • Cross Chop and Submission are basically inferior versions of Dynamic Punch.

  • Bullet Punch, Stone Edge, and Heavy Slam are almost never ideal on an offensive Machamp.

Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Bullet Punch and Counter are similar on defense, as Machamp’s counters often resist Counter.

  • Dynamic Punch and Heavy Slam end up doing similar damage to most of Machamp’s counters.

  • Cross Chop, though weak, has 2 bars and a fast damage window that is hard to dodge.

  • Stone Edge can catch Flying-types off-guard, but its 1 bar doesn’t work with Machamp's fragility.

  • Close Combat is poor because of its 1 bar, while Submission is both weak and easy to dodge.
Rating Explanation

In the beginnings of Pokemon GO, Machamp was made toothless with an unfavorable base stat conversion formula and the horrific quality of Fighting-type moves. Subsequent changes to game mechanics have transformed it into a hulking offensive powerhouse. Machamp remains the best Fighting-type Pokemon currently available, and the Fighting type has an important role in the metagame. Gen 3 introduced several other good Fighting-types, but Machamp is still the champ.
