Is it better to stick with Max Knuckle for the attack boost or is the Crit boost from G-Max Chi Strike better than an attack boost? I would use this Machamp for Wifi battles.

Why would you use Machamp when you can use single strike Urshifu?

Dynamaxed Machamp is better than Gigantamaxed Machamp. In your three turns of being Dmaxed, you can get a solid Attack boost. However, the increased critical hit chance is not guaranteed -- you can still have an attack without the crit.

So Max Knuckle is better, as it provided a guaranteed Attack boost each time you use it. G-Max Chi Strike is less reliable.

Hope I helped!

I believe GMax Chi Strike stacks, so three of those would guarantee a crit for all your moves. Still worse than getting a 2.5x boost from 3 Max Knuckles, though.
