Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Counter is Machamp’s most optimal quick move, having the highest DPS output as well as a low cooldown.
  • Karate Chop deals less damage but generates energy faster. This tradeoff slightly favors Counter, but Karate Chop is a legacy move worth keeping.
  • Dynamic Punch is the clearly superior Fighting-type charge move, contributing the most damage and being flexible to use. Close Combat is a step below and is by no means a bad charge option.
  • Cross Chop and Submission are sub-par Fighting-type moves. Cross Chop favors the player who likes to dodge while Submission favors the player who doesn’t.
  • Bullet Punch, Stone Edge, and Heavy Slam are almost never ideal on an offensive Machamp.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Bullet Punch and Heavy Slam counter Machamp’s Fairy-type weakness and hit Flying and Psychic-types neutrally.
  • Counter is a decent move, but it's resisted by Machamp's usual counters.
  • Stone Edge hits early in its animation and can catch a Dragonite attacker off-guard, but it doesn't complement Machamp's frailty.
  • Of Machamp's Fighting-type charge moves, Dynamic Punch > Submission. Machamp will rarely survive long enough to pull off a successful Close Combat or Cross Chop.

Rating Explanation:

In earlier versions 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 is, for many players around the world, the only good Fighting-type Pokemon currently available, and the Fighting type has an important role in the metagame. Machamp is the optimal counter for the coveted Tyranitar and beats down almost all of the tankiest gym defenders, such as Blissey, Snorlax, and Lapras.

On defense, Machamp makes occasional appearances in gyms as a chancy source of candy for teammates who feed it Berries. Its defensive prowess leaves much to be desired, however.

Raid Boss Counters
SupremeOverall best counter always. Almost always top in DPS and very high in survivability. The Pokemon you want for the job.
GoodThe next best if you don’t have Supreme Pokemon.
TankWhen you’re down to your 5-6th Pokemon and need to hold the line and not suck while doing it. Tanks always have more survivability than Supreme, but less DPS than Good.
GlassMore DPS than Good with significantly less survivability. Note: Less DPS than Supreme.
