So, in Generation One, Machamp could learn Fissure. And he has the ability No Guard, which guarantees moves will never miss. And, that combined with Fissure would make it overpowered. But Machamp can never have No Guard and Fissure at the same time, right? If you transfer over a Gen 1 Machamp knowing Fissure, it will gain it’s hidden ability. But if you transfer it to Sword or Shield, then use and Ability Capsule on it, which changes it’s ability to whatever you want. So, you could have No Guard and Fissure on the same Machamp. So, is that possible, and if it is, would Machamp become the most powerful Pokémon competitively?

Machamp must have its Hidden Ability because it has a move only available from Gen 1-2 Virtual Console transfer.

Apparently since Fissure is only available from Gen 1-2 Virtual Console Transfer and it must have Steadfast, no.
Why the downvote?

Best answer

In Gen 8, Machamp can learn Fissure only when obtained from:
Gen 7 virtual console transfer from gen 1-2

Machamp must have its Hidden Ability because it has a move only available from Gen 1-2 Virtual Console transfer.

Since Machamp is forced to have its Hidden Ability Steadfast if it knows Fissure, then no it's not possible to have one in SwSh.

Second part of your question being it the most broken Pokemon, no it isn't.
There are plenty of faster Pokemon that can OHKO Machamp, there are flying types too that have a type advantage against it. As such, even if it had No Guard Fissure, it still can't be broken as Mega-Ray because of its mediocre Speed and not-so-good stats for Ubers.

Hope this helps!
