Best Defensive Pokemon

The Top TenXW


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.

Aggron does have good defense but his special defense base is only 60 :/ so not all that good

Superb Pokemon.

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 is the ultimate defensive wall, with power swap it can become a destructive force. If you want a stall Pokemon, Shuckle can do great with sticky web access and contrary shell smash.

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

Yup best defensive pokemon, it will make the opponent cry if you use power split and keep using rest

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!


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.

Stops physical attacks with ease and is a great pokemon to have in your party

Beast Pokemon nobody can beat

Incredibly well balanced, this Pokemon serves as both a team fortress and destroyer. When leveled up to 100 this Pokemon becomes the pride of the trainer and the symbol of greatness. Absolutely a majestic sight to behold.

Having one of the most useful moves, Magikarp destroys anything that stands in his way even before evolving into mighty Gyarados and can also play a defensive role pretty well. It also has good speed so nothing can escape its wrath.

No Pokemon can stand up to the great Magikarp. With its incomparable stats, not to mention Magikarp's great move pool including one of the best competitive moves ever, splash, this Pokemon can take down any other Pokemon.

What is wrong with you people? This is one of the most UNcompetitive Pokemon in the game. It's only good stat is speed and that's 80 and it has nothing to back it up. The only good thing about magikarp is what it evolves into.

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


With 160 base Defense, and eviolite, this is probs for the best physical tank ever

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.


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!

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

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!

Lovely mixed bulk. The way to go if you love stall. An excellent cleric, with access to both heal bell and wish, you can help your other Pokemon survive longer too!

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

It just don't know how to defend itself

Super strong and has such a cute evolution line, plus his defense is outstanding. He has a tree growing out of his back for crying out loud!

With earthquake & higher defenses he can beat even fire types;perhaps grass-ground combo is great.

My torterra is the tank of my team even dusknor couldn't stand a chance


Lugia has highest speed n defense n hp

Lugia has a high special defense along with great attacks, this Pokemon is hearted to be in a favourites team

Lugia is strong and has high defense with high hp. Of course the attack is suck. But speed is super


Blissey is a tank literally a wall nothing can actually take her down

When I caught her, I named her wall

Blissey has one of the highest hp in the game. Also the combination of sing and it learning the move dream eater makes it a great offensive Pokemon

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.

Yes it's the best always pick it. Just always.

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