Best Defensive Pokemon

The Top TenXW

1Shuckle

Though you won't see many on competitive teams, shuckle practically absorbs both special and physical attacks, with a 230 base defense and a 230 based special defense. If it had more than a base 20 HP, shuckle would be a necessity for every team.

Shuckle has the highest defense and special defense of any pokemon.
For a defense pokemon, it has high HP. If you combine trick room and baton
Pass, it will usually go first

Shuckle is the most defensive s Pokemon but all the other stats are very poor and under 40 the defense stat is the only reason it is a Pokemon

I use shuckle all the time

2Aggron

Aggron is my teams tank it has a great move pool and it can take a hit and deal one out with great power in attack and defense it's my go to, I named it accurately named it, Dooms-Day.

Aagron has a bunch of defense, it is indeed very defensive AND offensive when needed to. I could take down a whole team all by itself... If there's no Pokemon with Surf or Earthquake.

If you find one with the rock head ability (receives no recoil) and teach it Double-Edge it becomes an unstoppable force.

Hell yeah aggron has top defense

3Steelix

Very powerful in defense, it's a shame that his other stats aren't up to standard with his devastatingly strong defense. If you want a Defensive Pokemon in your team this is the guy.

A major Power house. If a human punched the bleed.

Steelix is very cool

Beast Pokemon nobody can beat

4Deoxys

180 defense AND special defense? DEFENSE form ATTACK form and SPEED form! Dude! This pokemon is everything in one! How could you not love it!

5Magikarp

Should be called CHUCK NORRIS

Its the best pokemon ever

Guys... I think there is something seriously wrong about this website that may or may not be something ordinary that we see everyday that poop is black when men slap mice in the tail.

When I watch magikarp battles, I have to listen to In The End-Linkin Park

6Cloyster

One of the most defensive non Ubers in the game, Skill Link gives multi-strike moves always hitting quintuple. Its only problem however is its Special Defense which is really low. But throw something Special Defensive on the team, such as Probopass or Umbreon and that problem is sorted.

Got great defenses and skill link with icicle spear and rock blast with shell smash and item focus sash makes it almost unstoppable

7Onix

Not as good as steelix

8Registeel

I use registeel in a lot of battles, it's a really good defensive and special defensive pokemon in battle with friends or wifi

I took a long time to catch this thing. timer ball is a necessity. very defensive, and awesome robotic-looking Pokemon.

9Bastiodon

I think bastiodon because it's pretty cool and it's defense and special defense are both good

He would be by far my favorite Pokemon, don't care what other people say, I THINK HE IS A LEGEND!

He is just a tank!

10Regirock

OK Reggie rock by stat wise has that tied 200 definitely with other Pokemon but he also has good attack and before fairy type came out it was only this guy to take down dragon types of the elite four

The Contenders

11Heatran
12Umbreon

Dude, Umbreon has awesome Base Defense, Sp. Defense and Health! She can take a Focus Blast or Punch and still survive. She can learn crippling moves like Toxic and if someone tries to bring down Umbreon, Heal Bell and Moonlight are the way to go!

My Umbreon didn't even faint from a fire blast or focus blast. I was surprised it had such awesome defense. Go Umbreon!

Great Pokemon. I've used this monster a lot of times. It is just GREAT!

13Weedle

Umm I don't know why wheedles on this list but I guess base like 10 defense is pretty bad ass laugh out loud

14Tyranitar

Tyranitar looks cool. And strong but has low speed. Its awesome looking!

15Lugia
16Forretress

Chuggaaconroy made use of its defensive stat real well

Cloyster is a great pal with a big total of 180 (like aggron). It hasthe ability to launch all the spike attacks.

17Torterra
18Ferrothorn

With a base defense of 131 and base special defense of 116, along with a grass/steel type advantage, this Pokemon can hold off entire teams.

Pluse can learn both stealth rocks and spikes, can't be leech seeded, or spored!

19Probopass

How could you not love that moustache.
