he has always been my favorite and I'm happy to see he's finally getting the recognition he deserves (pokken mascot, and another articulated 6 inch figure coming out this year)
but the real question is, assuming it keeps no guard, is there any way to give machamp a mega that wouldn't leave it totally broken?
I just don't see how you can add another 100 points to it without making it overpowered
People always say this for every mega, and I don't get it. Machamp is UU. Mega Machamp would most likely keep No Guard and his typing, and thus basically play the same as normal Machamp but with better stats and he takes your mega slot. He would not be uber.
Fighting/Fighting (2.25 STAB, double weakness/resistance)
130->160 ATK (+30)
80->100 DEF (+20)
85->105 SPDEF (+20)
55-> 85 SPD (+30)
And give him a physical fighting move that hits their special defense, a reverse psyshock.
It's so weird seeing brochamp with the popular japan approved kids
That said i'm happy he gets merch but i dont quite like it. Id rather a good figure with a fixed pose that has a dynamic appearance if you get what i mean
Even with 50/50 of defenses boosted, Mchamp will be nowhere near overpowered because of the fairy and flying types gen 6 gave, and there are plenty other megas that will perform better
Id rather he gets buffed without a mega. Making DP have 120BP would be a great start
what if he became Fighting/Rock
To reference Graveler
130->100 ATK (-30)
80->110 DEF (+30)
65-> 175 SPATK (+110)
85->110 SPDEF (+25)
55-> 20 SPD (-35)
BST: 505-> 605 (+100)
No physical changes, it's just Machamp wearing a pair of Choice Specs.
>no guard STAB stone edge + dynamic punch
>sky high attack
Sure he survives talonflame but now he has to watch out for water, grass, ground, fighting and steel types, which, last time i checked, are basically 80% of OU. And that's not counting the fighting type weaknesses
Just wondering about Machamp, how does it just get a beak out of nowhere?
Dinosaurs > birds
You dont deserve Machamp
