By using the first integral method, the traveling wave solutions for the generalized Pochhammer-Chree (PC) equations are constructed. The obtained results include complex exponential function solutions, complex traveling solitary wave solutions, complex periodic wave solutions, and complex rational function solutions. The power of this manageable method is confirmed.
