They do about 2 damage to Eggy on the switch-in. Celebi will work too. And if anyone cares, Poliwrath pwns HP Bug.

Good thing my Machamp is anything but standard.

Machamp@Leftovers
Cross Chop
Hidden Power(Bug)
Rock Slide
Rest

And since my team for the time being is a spikes team, It makes the Hidden Power that more effective. Poliwrath has better defensive stats than Machamp, but he has the better attack, and the better Hidden Power(Bug), which runs off an attack of only 354. =/

HA HA DRAGONITE KICKS YOUR ASS.

Rock Slide from Machamp still isn't that good against Dragonite.

Machamp don't take hits very well and aren't all that fast. Anything with a strong enough attack should be able to take it out without too much hassle, but it won't be pretty. I honestly can't see a Machamp sweeping a team unless it's the end of the game or the thing's got some serious support behind it, so just try not to get hit too often, I guess.

Machamp's base speed is 55. So is Eggy's. 55 really isn't that bad. I got seriously pissed when people stated Heracross's weakness as being too damn slow and then I lost matches because I assumed I would be faster. Sure he's slow, compared to a fucking Mewtwo.

Note use of the phrase "aren't all that fast" as opposed to "slow as all hell".

I get distracted when I get mad about "slow" meaning slow for overused pokes. Marowak and Snorlax are the only two really slow overused pokes I can think of.

It's ok for a Pokémon to be really slow if it's strong enough to survive 1 or 2 attacks from almost anything...

Now, take your Machamp, he's a bitch, but, a psychic vs him and his HP Bug isn't going to matter too much. Only "possible" exception is if the opponent doesn't expect such a thing and begins doing stat enhancers such as amnesia and/or curse and/or double team and then you slam em with a HP Bug, then you might have em...

Exception: Medichamp. Cross chop, rock slide, HP bug, meditate, I think. Meditate on the switch-in, then HP bug to kill whatever psychic they sent in (probably not mewtwo, but with 00ber ban, everything). Also, counter pretty much pwns most all machamp.
