Machoke appear as larger, tailless Machop with red marks along their muscular arms. Their faces are more reptilian than before. The marks actually look like places where the skin has stretched apart because it can barely contain its huge muscles. Machoke wear black wrestling tights for better movement and a large, golden belt with a little red P on the buckle.
Machoke are Pokémon of immense strength. In fact, they are so strong that even with the power-save belt they constantly wear to control their power they are able to lift a dump truck with one hand.
Strong and capable, Machoke helps people with labor.
Machoke live in mountains, in foreboding areas where they can hone their skills. They can also be found in urban areas, as they are often employed for manual labor. They are most common in Kanto and Johto.
