Using its amazing muscles, it throws powerful punches that can knock its victim clear over the horizon.
This card was as a Wizards Black Star Promo released through the Pokémon League in February 2002. In Japan, it was one of five Holofoil Unnumbered Promotional cards that could be obtained as part of the Communication Evolution Campaign. The campaign launched with the release of the third Expansion Sheet on November 24, 1998 and ran until April 30, 1999. Participants who mailed a copy of any Machoke card along with a copy of Bill's PC to Media Factory during the campaign period were sent a copy of Machamp in return. Approximately 29,000 applications were made for Machamp over the course of the campaign. It was later reprinted in the Japanese Pokémon Web expansion using the e-Card Series layout.
