Machop can pick up Gravelers easily. They weigh 230lbs/105kg. A Machop would destroy a regular person.
EDIT: Nope wait, according to the Ruby Pokedex entry they have the strength to hurl 100 adult humans. Going with a somewhat conservative weight of 50kg, on average, Machop can hurl 5 tons around. Mach Punch from a Machop would pulverize anyone.
Use a shield, one of those that drop into the ground like a barrier. He hits the barrier, you do a roundhouse and slice his head off with your sword.
Come on, show some imagination. I swear you guys could pencilpush this pokemon to death.
If he's the size he is, and yet can lift 5 tons... his bone density, muscle density or both must be OBSCENE. That sword would break at the hilt upon coming into contact with him, and he'd barely feel it worth a tickle. It'd be like using a sword to fight Superman.
These are like, third dimension glasses, you know? They don't really work, though because I feel like I'm still seeing stuff in whatever dimension we live in.
Who here is so self-deluded that they think they can defeat Machop?
The guy can:
Break brick walls with his fist. Create earthquakes. Shoot fire. Create an avalanche. Punch with the power of lightning, fire, and ice. Punch faster than a bullet. Control the weather. Take a nap for 30 seconds and regenerate from all injuries, including third-degree burns, paralysis, and poison.
