    Default Fire Punch or Thunderpunch?

    I can't decide what move I should teach my Machamp...

    My Machamp looks like this:
    (no guard)
    - Dynamic Punch
    - Stealth Rock I mean stone edge!
    - Earthquake
    - Fire Punch / Thunderpunch

    My other pokemon are:
    - Enperuto (Ice Beam)
    - Yukinooh (Ice Punch)
    - Fuwaraido
    - Rapidash (Flare Drive)
    - Pachirisu (Discharge)

    I think Fire Punch is better, since in double battles Machamp can recover Rapidash's HP (Flash Fire)
    and Stone Edge covers the flying weakness
    BUT... I don't have any physical electric attack

    Machamp @ Leftovers
    Adamant nature
    - Bulk Up
    - Cross Chop
    - Stone Edge
    - Fire Punch
    1) Machamp can't learn Stealth Rock
    2) With this set , Stone Edge covers flyers. So , Fire Punch > Thunderpunch

    ^^ Machamp is a bit slow for a Choice band. It can pull it of but I like the Bulk-Upper better.

    I still prefer Guts. IF Machamp gets statused it attack rises to whoknowshowhigh. But with No Guard the opponent also has 100% accuracy , which is bit risky.

    I think that your Machamp should have the moves-Fire Punch
    Earthquake
    Stone Edge
    Thunder Punch
    His item should be Quick Claw

    There are no fighting moves in that MS. Why would you give up STAB?

    And why would it hold Quick Claw?

    ^^ Yes , but you forget that Quick Claw has a chance of 10% ( not sure on this ) to work.
