Replace Strength with Vital Throw and Saori's Machamp will be a lean, mean wrestling machine. Wink

For Vital Throw, you would have a Throh instead, since Strength and Machamp have the Kairiki-Kairiky pun that works for them. Vital Throw at least has the word "Nage" like in Nageki in it.

True, Machamp's use of Strength does emphasize the connection between the Pokémon and the move itself on the Japanese side (as well as the Throh -> Vital Throw / Nageki -> Ateminage connection). I just figured it might be a good alternative considering that Vital Throw was once Machamp's signature move back in the era of Gold, Silver, and Crystal.
