Machamp is a bipedal, tailless Pokémon, and is notable for being extremely muscled and having four arms. Its skin color is bluish-gray and it has red eyes. On its head, there are three ridges right above its eyes, which are right above its frog-like mouth. It has two arms on each side of its body, a pair located where its arms were in its pre-evolved form, and another pair directly above that attaches on the top of the shoulder. It wears a legless black girdle along with the power-save belt that it wore as a Machoke. Its legs are also quite muscled, and its feet only have two toes.
Machamp punch extremely fast and are known to have mastered every form of martial arts. The maximum amount of punches they can throw in a few seconds is approximately one thousand. Their attacks send foes flying over the horizon. With only one hand, they can move a mountain. They can hit from a multitude of angles, due to their four arms. However, they have poor dexterity, and cannot handle delicate work without their arms getting tangled. They can also learn Fire-type moves such as Flamethrower and Fire Blast, despite being mainly physical attackers.
Trying to do any work requiring care and dexterity causes Machamp's arms to get tangled. Machamp tends to leap into action before it thinks.
Machamp live in mountains, in forbidding areas where they can hone their skills. It shares its range with Machop and Machoke.
