==Biography==
Garchomp was Cynthia's most powerful Pokemon. She debuted in ''Top-Down Training,'' where she battled [[Lucian's Bronzong]] on television and won, blocking [[Flash Cannon]] with one of her fins and then defeating Bronzong with an incredibly powerful [[Giga Impact]], which normally would not do much damage to a Steel type. She also battled against [[Paul]] in the same episode. Paul started with [[Ash's Infernape|Chimchar]] who hit Garchomp with [[Fire Spin]] before attempting to use [[Dig]]. Garchomp used her own Dig attack and then burst out of the ground, still surrounded by Fire Spin, and knocked out Chimchar with one blow. She then endured [[Paul's Weavile|Weavile's]] super effective [[Blizzard]] with astonishing ease, dodged two [[Ice Beam]]s and defeated Weavile with [[Dragon Rush]]. She also used [[Giga Impact]] to defeat [[Paul's Honchkrow|Murkrow]], easily overpowering the Darkness Pokemon's [[Sky Attack]].[[File:Garchomp blocks Frenzy Plant.jpg|thumb|left|190px|Garchomp blocking Frenzy Plant using only her fins.]] Finally Paul used Torterra who actually managed to do a fair bit of damage with [[Giga Drain]] causing Garchomp to fall to her knees.

Garchomp smashed Infernape to the ground with [[Brick Break]] and then Infernape struck back with [[Mach Punch]] before using another Close Combat. Garchomp retaliated with [[Stone Edge]] and then intercepted Infernape's [[Flare Blitz]] with [[Dragon Rush]] creating a huge explosion. When the smoke cleared, Infernape collapsed and Cynthia was announced the winner.

However Garchomp quickly recovered and would have defeated Axew with [[Brick Break]] if Cynthia hadn't called her off at the last moment.

Garchomp was also used during Cynthia's battle with Caitlin, fighting against her Gothitelle. The battle had a one minute time limit, and Gothitelle was initially able to gain the upper hand by confusing Garchomp with [[Flatter]] and then tossing her around the battlefield with [[Psychic]]. However when Gothitelle threw Garchomp into the air, Garchomp used her feet to propel herself off the ceiling and smashed into Gothitelle with Dragon Rush. She then attempted a Draco Meteor but Gothitelle blocked it by using [[Thunderbolt]] to destroy the meteors, creating a fireworks display. The battle ended when the time limit ran out after the two Pokemon's Brick Break attacks collided, resulting in a draw.

BiographyEdit

Garchomp is Cynthia's most powerful Pokémon. She debuted in Top-Down Training, where she battled Lucian's Bronzong on television and won, blocking Flash Cannon with one of her fins and then defeating Bronzong with an incredibly powerful Giga Impact, which normally would not do much damage to a Steel type. She also battled against Paul in the same episode. Paul started with Chimchar who hit Garchomp with Fire Spin before attempting to use Dig. Garchomp used her own Dig attack and then burst out of the ground, still surrounded by Fire Spin, and knocked out Chimchar with one blow. She then endured Weavile's super effective Blizzard, dodged two Ice Beams and defeated Weavile with Dragon Rush. She also used Giga Impact to defeat Murkrow, easily overpowering the Darkness Pokémon's Sky Attack.
Garchomp blocks Frenzy Plant

Garchomp blocking Frenzy Plant using only her fins.

Finally Paul used Torterra who actually managed to do a fair bit of damage with Giga Drain causing Garchomp to fall to her knees. However when Torterra attempted to use Frenzy Plant, Garchomp displayed incredible physical strength by blocking all six roots using her fins and shoving them all away before defeating Torterra with a single Brick Break.

Garchomp later appeared when Cynthia was challenged by Aaron, defeating his Drapion.

Garchomp also helped battle Team Galactic on two occasions, first when attempting to stop them from stealing the Lustrous Orb and later when preventing them from taking over the Pokémon universe by using the powers of Dialga and Palkia.

Garchomp also battled Flint's Infernape when Flint challenged Cynthia for the title of Sinnoh League Champion. Infernape dodged Garchomp's Draco Meteor and attacked with Close Combat. Garchomp smashed Infernape to the ground with Brick Break and then Infernape struck back with Mach Punch before using another Close Combat. Garchomp retaliated with Stone Edge and then intercepted Infernape's Flare Blitz with Dragon Rush creating a huge explosion. When the smoke cleared, Infernape collapsed and Cynthia was announced the winner.

Garchomp also appeared when Cynthia travelled to Unova where she battled Iris' Axew, taking Axew's Scratch and blocking Dragon Rage before almost knocking Axew out with Dragon Rush and Draco Meteor. Axew learned Giga Impact during the battle and actually managed to knock Garchomp off her feet. However Garchomp quickly recovered and would have defeated Axew with Brick Break if Cynthia hadn't called her off at the last moment.

Garchomp was also used during Cynthia's battle with Caitlin, fighting against her Gothitelle. The battle had a one minute time limit, and Gothitelle was initially able to gain the upper hand by confusing Garchomp with Flatter and then lifting it up in the air with Psychic. However when Gothitelle threw Garchomp into the air, Garchomp used her feet to propel herself off the ceiling and smashed into Gothitelle with Dragon Rush. She then attempted a Draco Meteor but Gothitelle blocked it by using Thunderbolt to destroy the meteors, creating a fireworks display. The battle ended when the time limit ran out after the two Pokémon's Brick Break attacks collided, resulting in a draw.

Garchomp was also used in the battle against the Kami Trio in Unova's Survival Crisis!. It battles against therian forme Tornadus, but was outmatched, until Meloetta's song calmed the beasts down.
