Generation I Pokémon are getting harder and harder to find as the newer generation dominate the nests across the map.
However, this doesn't mean you won't be able to encounter Generation I Pokémon anymore. If you know where to look, you wouldn't have a problem looking for these favorite, old-school Pokémon.
One of the fan favorites is Machamp. If you are looking for a Machamp but don't know where to start, look no further.
This article will guide you through how you can find Machamp and a popular coordinate for a Machamp spawn nest in Pokémon GO.
Let's jump right in!
Machamp is a Fighting-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It has a humanoid figure that has a buff physique and four arms, and it is the final evolved form of a Machop.
Once a Machop has evolved into a Machoke, you must trade it to evolve it into a Machamp. Aside from trading, you can also just feed a Machoke with 100 Machop Candies, which will make it evolve into a Machamp.
Machamp has a 130 base Attack stat but has a low 55 base Speed. Due to its sheer strength, it has been one of the icons of Fighting-type Pokémon ever since the first games were released, and it makes a desirable addition to any Pokémon team.
Aside from evolving a Machop into a Machamp using Candies and trading in Pokémon GO, you can also spot a Machamp out in the wild. This will save you the trouble of collecting Machop candies, which can be quite tiring.
According to the Pokémon GO trainer community, many Machamp sightings happen near stadiums, sports arenas, and large gyms.
This is quite understandable as habitats in Pokémon GO are based on the Pokémon's types. So if you are looking for a Machamp in the wild, start by searching near these types of facilities.
There are spots with high Machamp spawn rates. These nests have been pinpointed by the Pokémon GO community and are used to catch more Machamps to obtain more Machop candies.
You can try and head to these coordinates, which are known to be a Machamp hotspot:
You must take note that nest locations are constantly and randomly shifting.
So if you struck out with these coordinates, you could head to popular Reddit threads or Discord servers where fellow Pokémon GO trainers share recent coordinates where certain Pokémon are sighted.
Machamps are hardly spotted in the wild. In fact, final evolutionary forms are seldomly found on the map, so players often have to grind and evolve them instead.
However, there are a few rare places where you can spot Machamp, such as gyms, stadiums, and similar facilities.
Head to those places and try your luck at finding the four-armed brute. A tiny disclaimer though: it might be hard to find one, but it is even harder to catch one since it usually comes with a high CP.
