Every Machamp Weakness in Pokemon GO

Machamp is a pure Fighting-type Pokemon. This means that it has three weaknesses that you should be looking to exploit.

They are Fairy, Flying and Psychic-type moves.

Best Machamp Counters

There are a range of counters that are particularly effective against Machamp in Pokemon GO.

Of the Mega Pokemon that are available, Mega Gengar and Mega Pidgeot are by far the two best options.

Overall, however, Mewtwo is the top counter to Machamp.

The likes of Latios, Moltres, Ho-Oh and Lugia all provide really strong aerial counters. While Alakazam, Metagross and Espeon are great Psychic choices.

You can find the best movesets for each of the above Pokemon right here:

  • Mewtwo – Confusion/Psychic
  • Mega Gengar – Lick/Sludge Bomb
  • Mega Pidgeot – Gust/Brave Bird
  • Latios – Zen Headbutt/Psychic
  • Moltres – Wing Attack/Sky Attack
  • Ho-Oh – Extrasensory/Brave Bird
  • Alakazam – Confusion/Psychic
  • Metagross – Zen Headbutt/Psychic
  • Espeon – Confusion/Psychic
  • Lugia – Extrasensory/Aeroblast

Machamp is a solid Pokemon for PVP so is a good choice to raid. It’s also a relatively easy Raid Boss to take down and can be soloed with a good range of the above counters or other strong Fairy, Flying or Psychic-type Pokemon.
