still sucks even after that since it has no stab, just keep a varied team instead of teaching moves that dont fit pokemon to them (i know those moves fit hitmonchan, but its fighting and they are elemental moves)

Except Thunderpunch and Icepunch at least were great for him since they cover one of his weaknesses. Stab is nice and all but without coverage, you're ******.

Hitmonchan's Iron Fist ability improves the base power of punch moves by 20%.

It's also a common strategy to load up a sweeper with a wide variety of moves, one with STAB and the other three of other types to surprise the opponent.

yeah, but hitmonchan is squishy and doesnt hit all that hard with said abilities, so if you face a bird it will **** your **** up if its any kind of decent

I found a solid hitmonchan moveset is (note in recent gens)
- drain punch
- thunder punch
- ice punch
- earthquake
with the iron fist 20% punch boost ability + expert belt for increased super effective damage.
trained it to be rather tanky + it has stab+boosted drain punch for sustain, it can sit there and just be S.E. against a ton of things

now is it the best? not really, recommended for competitive? nah, but it's fun

i love hitmonchan and all, but its just shafter me in the past teaching wrong moves to pokemon, its like (not exactly, but close) teaching your dragonite thunderbolt, or teaching your starmie said thunderbolt, you should just get a raichy or elektabuzz instead

The funny thing is teaching hitmonchan elemental punches is stupid because he has insanely low spc. atk which is what those abilities scale off of.

Hasn't been that way since gen. 4. Now, the elemental punches are physical attacks, which makes them terrifying on hitmonchan, as they should have been.

its ability gives all punching moves an extra 20% power boost so hitmonchan is a beast now

In terms of attacking, yes, Hitmonchan is good. But he's frail as **** and not very fast.

As others have pointed out, the punches scale off of Attack.

Even still, back in Red and Blue it didn't even matter. Just having the right type advantage was enough to annihilate the single player content.

Not even now does it matter.
You can wreck the single player content with whatever really. The metagame is where its at.

**kanatana rolled a random image posted in comment #154 at A dream come true ** It's funny, I was playing my LeafGreen emulator the other day and beat the gym, and I just left 'Chan in the box. Would I have been better in putting him in my party instead of using my Machoke?

Machoke isn't wonderful. Machamp, on the other hand, is infinitely better than Primeape or Machoke, and I'd say even a neglected Machamp can be as good as or better than either Hitmon.

I always chose Hitmonlee, solely because Hitmonchan looks like a little bitch in the originals.

I thought Hitmonchan was wearing a skirt my entire childhood. When it turned out to be a male pokemon only, I thought it was a tranny.
