The Top Ten

1
Shuckle
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
HANDS DOWN the most defensive Pokémon. That is the only real reason Shuckle exists as all it's other stats are putrid. Other than Forretress, there is no Pokémon better suited to defend your team.
[Newest]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.

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
[newest]
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
I have this on my team and can practically solo any team online
[Newest]Guys splash wiped half of their team with 1 hit

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

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!
Just look at its defencive stats!
[newest]
He is just a tank!

10Regirock

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!

13Lugia

14Tyranitar
Tyranitar looks cool. And strong but has low speed. Its awesome looking!
By Hacker. Pk

15Forretress
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.

16Torterra

17Ferrothorn
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!
Get ferroseed, then give it macho brace, then keep gryo ball and curse. it is a pain to train but its results are worth the effort. here is mine : level 46 : attack 115; defense 138; sp atk 68; sp definitely 121; speed 35.
You do not need to worry about his speed because if your opponent uses phyical moves they will lose 1/8 of his health do to iron barbs.

18Probopass
How could you not love that moustache.

19Weedle
Umm I don't know why wheedles on this list but I guess base like 10 defense is pretty bad ass laugh out loud

20Cresselia
Seriously? 444hp at lv 100, 125 base defense and 135 base sp defense? This thing is a WALL. It can also learn moves like moonlight, toxic, double team and more! Another underrated legendary...

21Graveler
His defense is amzing! Even though mine is only lv 36 it took out a lv 44 Bastiodon all on its own even though it had a MASSIVE disadvantage I think he should be number 1or if not 5 at least

22Goodra
Just give it an assault vest or whatever it is called and you are set to go
150 base special defense is amazing, and 110 special attack makes it better. Really good gen 6 pokemon, and it's a psuedo-legendary.

23Leavanny
When its a swadloon it learns protect so its awesome

24Blissey
Although many of us have come to hate this pokemon, it is because it is has a monster defense. We hate it because whenever we got it down to low hp, it used softboiled to get its' health back. Beast defense + hp recovering move.

25Empoleon
Not the best defensive stats but only 3 weaknesses to go along with 11 resistances and 1 immunity. Almost impossible to knock out.

26Snorlax

27Mamoswine
It's the best defensive pokemon on my team along Aggron.

28Sunkern
Sunkern has the best possible defense stat, with a crippling 40 across the board! Your opponents will be brought to destruction when you send out sunkern!

29Pikachu

30Gigalith
This thing has amazing defense and can dish out some impressive hits as we'll he is bada**

31Cofagrigus
Base defense stat is scary high and is a great trick room and willowisper

32Arceus
120 is a lot. Only one who beats him is Magikarp with OVER 9000!

33Giratina
Obviously the most bulky Pokemon.

34Feebas

35Jellicent
Looks like a hot air balloon

36Metagross
It's a pseudo with 9 resistances!

37Chesnaught
