Can Go Mid

Machamp can easily go mid and farm buffs to help the top or bottom lanes. You can use Bulk Up to increase your movement speed to chase down enemies. Submission is also your go to move when ganking.

Cross Chop & Submission To Close Distance

Submission can make Machamp immune to status ailments while granting it increased movement speed. Cross Chop not only provides added burst damage, but it also lets Machamp dash forward to either catch up or escape.

Stack Attack & Movement Speed

As a melee all-rounder, Machamp will need extra attack & movement speed so he can keep up & deal damage to the enemy team. Stack these 2 stats so that it can close the distance and maintain damage output.

Crit Rate Help For Bigger Burst

Most of Machamp's moves already increase Crit rate, so making further investment to it by using Scope Lens may provide higher burst damage more consistently.

Machamp - Strategy & Walkthrough

Go Mid & Support Other Lanes

Go Mid & Support Other Lanes

Machamp goes well when assigned to the mid lane. It can use Bulk Up an its subsequent skills to roam around and support the other lanes. Take time to get the buffs and use the middle lane's jump platforms to position yourself for a gank.

Can Also Go Bottom

Can Also Go Bottom

While not heavily on the offensive side, Machamp can also go to the bottom lane. Make sure to get an Attacker or Supporter Pokemon to help you maintain the lane.

Which Lanes to Play Guide

Machop (Lv1~4) - Strategy

Machop Lv 1 Strategy

Focus on leveling up from Wild Pokemon as a priority as you're still pretty weak without levels. Aim to quickly reach level 5 before you go for the offensive. Avoid initiating and stick close to goals if the enemy team is being aggressive.

Prioritize Nukers, Support, & Attackers

Prioritize Nukers & Supports

Bulk Up leaves you immune to status ailments and it increases your movement speed. Use this when an enemy Pokemon makes the mistake of going in deep towards your goal. Make sure to have a teammate with you as your damage will likely be not enough to take down a Pokemon during this stage.

Machoke (Lv 5~8) - Strategy

Machoke Lv8

Continue to level up but pay attention to the Drednaw or Rotom based on your lane. You can be a bit more aggressive now that your moves are unlocked but you should always remember to have your HP up as your defense isn't that great. Take the opportunity to jump enemy Pokemon using your Cross Chop & Submission combo.

Adapt Your Build To The Situation

Adapt your Build to your situation

At Level 7, you'll need to choose a move that will determine your playstyle. Dynamic Punch can let you jump in for easy attack, while Submission can be helpful in breaking enemy lines by tossing Pokemon towards your rear. Pick a move depending on if you're going solo or have good coordination with your team. If you want to close distances fast, then choose the Cross Chop + Dynamic Punch Build. If you want to do crowd control, choose the Close Combat + Submission Build. If you want a bit of both, get Cross Chop + Submission.

If You Chose Cross Chop
Lv 7: Dynamic PunchDynamic PunchDash
A more damage-oriented move for positioning. Grants a buff after the user lands.
If You Chose Close Combat
Lv 7: SubmissionSubmissionHindrance
The next normal attack slams the Pokemon to the ground, positioning it behind Machamp. Also grants buffs and increases Machamp's attack speed and critical-hit rate.

Machamp (Lv 9~) - Strategy

Using Unite Move: Barrage Blow

Barrage Blow greatly increases Machamp's movement speed, Attack, Defense, and SP Defense. When triggered again, the move ends with a slew of punches that deals an incredible amount of damage. Using the attack does not remove the buff so use the attack immediately if you find yourself in a favorable position to hit multiple enemies.

Cross Chop + Dynamic Punch

Recommended Combos
Dynamic Punch → Normal Attack → Cross Chop

Start with Dynamic Punch to quickly deal a hit to your opponent and leave them stunned. This move speeds up your movements and boosts your next basic attacks, so deal a Normal Attack and quickly follow up with Cross Chop to land a critical hit. These successive hits can prove to be quite lethal in battle.

TipTIP!Machamps Cross Chop can be used to cross walls. Just make sure to aim carefully to cross. Make use of this when escaping or when ganking enemy Pokemon!

Close Combat + Submission

Recommended Combos
Submission → Normal Attack → Normal Attack → Close Combat

Open up with Submission to get its various buffs, then hit the enemy with your boosted normal attack. When the enemy is stunned, hit then again with a normal attack then finish off with Close Combat. This will make use of all buffs to get the most damage in your attacks.

Cross Chop + Submission

Recommended Combos
Cross ChopSubmission
-or-
SubmissionCross Chop

You can use either Submission or Cross Chop to initiate attacks. You can open with either and use the remaining skill to chase down enemies. Submission should mostly be utilized when chasing or locking down an enemy for your team to burst down. Note that you can use Cross Chop to cross thin walls, so use this skill to join or escape attacks.

Other Tips & Guides

Vulnerable If Focused On

Vulnerable If Focused On

Machamp has more HP than most other Pokemon but is still on the vulnerable side. If Machamp gets targeted, it will be KOed very quickly. Use terrain such as Grass to cover your movement and always have an exit strategy when fighting.

Fight With Team To Take Out Zapdos

Coordinate with your team to push or take out Zapdos. Avoid defending alone as you're vulnerable if ganged up upon. Your main priority is Zapdos or taking out key enemy Pokemon in group fights. As you're still quite squishy, be sure to fall back when your HP is low.

Fight With Your Team

Fight with your team

Although Machamp boasts a decent damage output, it may not be enough during the latter parts of the match. Make sure to team up with other Pokemon for better damage and more KOs.
