Shiny Machop, Machoke and Machamp


Reimbursement is damage Darkness– movement introduced for the first time in the IV generation of the games in the main series (Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum versions). Curiously, the main Machamp series can’t learn Payback through regular leveling – you have to use TMs to learn Payback. In the main series, Payback has an interesting mechanic:

If the user can use this attack after the enemy attacks, its power is doubled. The user stores energy, then attacks. If the user can use this attack after the enemy, his power is doubled.

We have no information on whether or not this mechanic will enter Pokémon GO.
