    Machamp is one of those Pokémon you always wanted on your team as a kid. Not just because he's a four-armed bodybuilding champion, but also because in older games you could only get one by trading. In Pokémon Go, it's a little easier to get your hands on a Machamp so trainers can upgrade it for trainer battles or you might see one in a raid. Here are Machamp's weaknesses and the best Pokémon to counter them.



    All of Machamp's weaknesses

    Machamp is a Fighting Pokémon. This makes it susceptible to Flying, Psychic, and Fairy-type moves. You should avoid throwing a Rock-type or Normal-type Pokémon that Machamp can hit quickly. Obviously, it's a bit more difficult to prepare for a Machamp on the opposing team in the battles with the coaches, but definitely stick to the Flying, Psychic and Fairy types for raids.

    The best Pokémon to counter Machamp

    The best Pokémon ever to counter an opposing champion is Mewtwo or Lugia. Both can learn psychic moves and Lugia can also have flying moves. As two of the strongest Pokémon in the game, it will also significantly help reduce Machamp's health.

    After that, we recommend Espeon and Alakazam. Two Glass Cannon Pokémon that will be a little better suited to survive Machamp's attacks.

    Complementing your team should be any other Legendary Bird Pokémon you own. Ho-oh, Articuno, Zapdos, or Moltres with at least one Flying move are perfect for dealing with Machamp's attacks.



    If you need more options to put on your team against a Machamp, here are some alternatives.
