Pokemon Analysis

Overview

Despite having a bit of a glass chin, Machamp can deal massive amounts of Damage that quickly ramps up with every hit he lands.

Strengths

Basically Strong

While his Sync Move lacks any additional effects, it is still none-the-less incredibly powerful with the potential to be even more deadly if both charges of Dire Hit have been used prior.

Getting the Ball Rolling

Karate Chop, and Cross Chop both increase Machamp’s Critical Hit Rate on top of Dire Hit. Critical Hits also deal even more Damage thanks to his Critical Strike 2 Passive Skill.

Enemies who nullify the Critical Hit Rate Buffs won’t completely get rid of his ability to increase his own Critical Hit Rate.

Weaknesses

Glass Chin

He can increase his Sp. DEF with “Hoo Hah!”, but that doesn’t change the fact that his overall Bulk isn’t very high. This coupled with low Speed means he won’t last long after the Support is taken out.

Team Synergy

Critical Speed Teams

He can do exceptionally well on Critical Teams, but it’s preferable that there are also Team Buffers to increase his Speed and Evasiveness.
