Machamp: he plays a key role in a late forming deck
This card isn't to bad, 130 hp stage 2 fighitng with an
attack that can edo 70 for one energy is pretty cool.
This is also half of the famed "Mario" deck.
its a nice card, and the +30 weakness helps a lot, but
it isn't as strong as other pokemon(ironic, no?)
If you get it, you play it
Machamp Lv. 59 D&P
Wow, now that’s what I call a nice card. Massive HP,
possible 70 for 1 «, Possible 90 & confusion for 3
«, and a battle buddy in the same set, If you don’t
know, this card (along with Lucario D&P) is the
driving force for ‘Mario’ the newest deck running
around. Once the new set ‘Mysterious
Treasures’ comes out, this deck will get massive
with the introduction of Lucario Lv. X. This card
shows so much promise; it must be the roll model of
all the wana-be cards out there.
Nice energy costs
Battle partner in the same set
Can OHKO that ‘Flaming king of monkeys’ Infernape
with only 1 plus-power and a heads.
Unlimited – to slow, Sneasle will eat this guy
Modified – OH YEA!!! I see much faster decks coming
to the next worlds. 4.5/5
Limited – Grand HP, Massive attacks, loves basics
that kills your basics. 5/5
Have a nice weekend,
“Stupidity got us into this mess -- why can't it get
Machamp Lv. 59
Diamond and Pearl
Unlimited: 2.5/5 With better trainers here, there is a
pretty good chance you can do T1 70. Although not my
first choice, it "could" be played here.
Modified: 3.5/5 Wow. Anybody hear of that new deck they
call Mario? Yea, I didn't think it was a real deck
either. I honestly don't see the synergy between Machamp
and Lucario besides the same type, but I guess that's
all you need to create a new archetype nowadays//end
sarcasm. But you know, being an avid Machamp player
myself (T32 Worlds 2004 with Machamp HL), I am forced to
like every Machamp card there is. All of that aside, I
believe while this card is not as strong as Machamp HL/PK,
it can be combined with it to make a pretty nice deck.
Forget the Lucarios, an all-out Mono Machamp deck might
even be worth playing next format for its speed.
Limited: 3.5/5 If you draft the line it's pretty nice
here. 70 for 1 energy is very good.
*Sigh* the one pokemon I can't get enough of. I bought 7
packs just trying to get another one with no success. He
is a stage 2, but his evolution line is pretty good from
the D+P series, so that is no real problem. Revenge is a
good attack, as it can do 70 damage for 1 energy. Your
opponent will think twice about KOing a pokemon if they
know you are playing this guy.
As if that weren't enough, 130 HP is amazing. You just
really can't OHKO this guy. Then there is the fact that
his second attack is great, not good, great. 60 damage
for 3 energy is pretty good, but you flip a coin and can
do 30 more PLUS confusion. I have used this guy to
completely destroy my opponent's team, and you can too!
Modified-4.5/5 ( I love this guy here, He is almost as
fast to get out as Infernape and just as powerful)
LImited-5/5 (hard to get, but if you do get him out,
your opponent just might wanna scoop up those cards then

im not onto the hype this one got however nobody can say
that its isnt really good...
great hp good attacks revenge is good but often useless
as in a close match youre often behind on prizes when
opponent just KO'ed 1 of your pokes. this is what
scrambles for. And if the match isnt close then whats
the point? :) that said ok attack.
especially when scramle would become colorless and
therefore not able too power up Dynamic punch
dynamic punch is good too but costing FFF and not like
FCC its requires that youve build around it.
what really powers this card is not itsself but its
preevelutiond course they are REALLY good.
figthing typed 20 at F? go machop! go pluspower.
cessicrystal is naturally great with this too.
3 retreat is too much but it cant be good at everything
pack your switch/Warp points when playing this.
i dont like lucario machamp decks lucario is good and
fast but NOTHING compared to machamp it has to be
possible to find something better. But Dynamic punch
needs FFF which is off course why people chose lucario....
limited 4.9 (perfect but to get a 5 dynamic punch
shouldve costed FCC :) if you can only get pre evos then
they are STRONG too)
a long break from Card of the Day reviews I’m finally
back in action. Today it’s Machamp Lv. 59 form Diamond
card has recently seen success alongside Lucario in the
deck “Mario”. Underrated by many players including
myself, if proved a shock when several of these decks
had good, Top 32 finishes across the age divisions at US
basic concept of this card (and that deck) is brute
force plain and simple. This guy in particular has a
bulky HP and can take a few hits, and his lack of a
power means cards like cessation crystal work nicely
first attack is potentially a big hit for just 1 energy.
Lets say your active Pokemon has just been knocked out;
forward this guy and you get a cheap hit for 70. His
second attack has a lot of power too, a good flip could
make Pokemon with otherwise insurmountable HP’s a lot
Usually though it’s this Pokemon basic (Machop DP) that
really add “punch” to the deck. If you play 4 plus
powers and perhaps a couple of strength charms, he’ll
often be able to KO Castform’s, eevee’s etc Turn 1. This
guy gives you the chance to sweep later on.
Basically this card is very simple, but deadly effective
with cards like pluspower and cessation crystal.
Unlimited: Not bad, Machop can play a haymaker role,
whilst this guy sweeps: 2/5
Modified: Pretty good here. Limited in terms of the in
game manipulation, but often simplicity is the best way
to go: 4/5
Limited: If you can get the line perhaps, but the 3
specific energy for its main attack is a real downer in
my opinion. 3/5
