Machoke (Japanese: ゴーリキー Gōrikī) is a Fighting-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.


Machoke is a very muscular Pokémon. It has lost its tail and has become more human-like. Its arms have exposed veins which express its phenomenal power. It has a belt to contain this power.

Special abilities

Machoke can have the ability Guts or the ability No Guard. Guts increases Machoke's attack if it has a status effect. No Guard allows both Machoke's and the opponent's attacks to hit more often. Machoke boasts so much strength, that it can be dangerous. The belt it wears suppresses this energy.


Machoke is the evolved form of Machop, and evolves into Machamp by trade.
