G-Max Chi Strike (Japanese: キョダイシンゲキ Kyodai Charge) is a damage-dealing Fighting-type G-Max Move introduced in Generation VIII. It is the exclusive G-Max Move of Gigantamax Machamp.


G-Max Chi Strike inflicts damage and increases the user's and its allies' critical hit rate by one stage. This critical hit rate boost stacks with the Focus Energy effect and with multiple uses of itself. The boost cannot be passed with Baton Pass.[1]

Its power and whether it is a special or physical move depends on the move it is based on.
