Trivia

  • The beta of Guroru and Shedoru showed Machiko, Rikurothu and Royuspuku differently. In the beta, they were more fairy-like. In the final release, they were changed, possibly due to the odd legs.
  • Despite Machiko resembles a royal emperor, it doesnt act like one at all. However, its final evolution, Royuspuku, does, but due to its spider-mouth decorations, it can act more like a spider.

Origin

Machiko resembles a royal emperor.

Name Origin

Its name comes from mach, and possibly ikko, apple, probably a reference to its head.
