1. Alakazam

Machamp's movesets

The combination of Karate Chop and Cross Chop is considered as the best moveset for Machamp as an attacker.

Alakazam

When the Machamp's moves are all fighting-type, Alakazam is one of the best Pokemon to beat Machamp. While decreasing the damage of fighting-type moves, Alakazam's psychic-type moves are super effective against Machamp.

Best moveset

The combination of Psycho Cut and Psychic is the best for Alakazam to beat Machamp based on based on DPS and EPS.

Fast move Charge move
Psycho Cut Psychic

Other options

  • Psychic-type Pokemon
    Since Alakazam is not easy to get, a player may use other psychic-type Pokemon, such as Hypno and Exeggutor, to beat Machamp.
  • Flying-type Pokemon
    Since Golbat, a flying-type Pokemon also cut the damage of fighting-type moves, it can be one of the options. To beat Machamp, the combination of Wing Attack and Air Cutter is the best moveset for Golbat. Note that dual-type Pokemons such as Pidgeot and Fearow are damaged as usual by fighting-type moves, because they have additional normal-type.
  • Fairy-type Pokemon
    Since Clefable and Wigglytuff have additional normal-type, they cannot cut the damage of fighting-type moves. However, their fairy-type charge moves are super effective against Machamp.

2. Slowbro

Machamp's movesets

The combination of Bullet Punch and Cross Chop is said as the best moveset for Macahamp as a defender.

Slowbro

When the Machamp's moveset is the combination of a steel-type move and a fighting-type move (Bullet Punch is a steel-type fast move), Slowbro is one of the optimal Pokemon to fight against Machamp. Those moves are not very effective against Slowbro (steel-type moves are not very effective against a water-type Pokemon). On the other hand, Slowbro can attack an opponents with psychic-type moves.

Best moveset

Even though Slowbro can use Confusion, a psychic-type fast move super effective against Machamp, Water Gun can be better than that based on EPS and DPS.

Fast move Charge move
Water Gun Psychic

Other options

Species having both psychic- and water-types can decrease the damage of steel- and fighting-type moves.

Other Machamp's movesets

When the Machamp's moveset is a combination of fighting- and rock-type moves, psychic-type Pokemons may work better than others. There are no Pokemon which both fighting- and rock-type are not very effective against to.
