Pokemon Go: Don’t Power-up ALL your Machamps Yet !!!
Yes, folks, you read that title right, Do not power up your Machamps! Ok now hear me out, this might get a little bit misleading now.
You see many guides online prescribe powering up Machamps. Many popular Pokemon Go YouTuber including Trainers Trainer Tips in his latest videos, was advising people to pour all their dust into maxing out all of their Machamps.
And it seems like great advice right now since Machamp is the best counter to Tyranitar, Snorlax, and Lapras, which are the 3 best raids to do right now.
But hear me out, guys we all by this point know that raids bosses will get shuffled, it is bound to happen, we can’t always have the same Pokemon as the raid bosses. So whenever that happens, all the Machamps you power up right now will become less significant, and might end up rotting up in your PC box.
As of now, terrifying Raid bosses are Tyranitar, Rhydon, Snorlax, and Lapras. All of which are weak to Machamp, and a counter/Dynamic Punch Machamp will beat the crap out of them. So it makes perfect sense to power them up right? NO!!!!
Let’s say in about a fortnight, Niantic changes the raid bosses, and no longer are Tyranitar, Rhydon, Snorlax and Lapras Raid bosses, instead, you get something like Dragonite, Ampharos, Tangela and other. All the stardust that you spent would go to waste. Sounds logical right? Also, with many gurus saying that we will be getting legendary Pokemon as a part of the Pokemon GO Fest, as legendary raids, so this might mean Machamp will still be of no good use when it comes to using them as a good legendary raid counter.
Ok, It doesn’t mean you don’t power up your Machamps at all. If you really want to up your raiding game, and you want to Take on a Raid Tyranitar with your friends only, then you will need to beef up you Machamp’s guns, then you better power them up. But if you choose to do so make sure you spend you precious dust on the right Machamp. You know the drill high IV and good offensive moves.
Ok, guys, that’s it for a quick update guys hope this post helps you to make the right decision.
Update- July 12th I see a lot of People misunderstanding what is beeing said, I didn’t mean to say not to power up you Machamps, but I meant to say Think before you power them up.
