Machop are bipedal, tailed creatures that have gray skin, and three brown ridges on top of its head. They have large red eyes, three thin rib-like stripes on the sides of its chest, and small tails. Its feet appear to have no toes.
Machop, though small, has enough strength to hurl an adult human. Machop's special muscles will never tire or cramp no matter how long it trains.
Machop spend their time and energy practicing all different forms of martial arts and trying to improve their abilities. Machop will lift boulders and Graveler as if they were dumbbells in order to strengthen their bodies.
Machop live in mountains, in foreboding areas where they can hone their skills. Its range includes Kanto and Johto.
