The Top Ten

Arceus has the best base stat out of every single Pokemon in the world with an epic 620 and can change forms into any type it learns the most powerful move judgement staraptor's close combat is not even close to judgement. I suggest you rethink about what a powerhouse Arceus is as he deserves to be #1
Arceus is the strongest Pokemon ever made. It can learn Judgement and any other move. It definitely needs to be #1
Arceus is legendary. I took down all of the champion's Pokemon! It was my main Pokemon that I trained.
[Newest]It is so tough! It can be any type!

This guy is amazing, with the right move set he has a place on anyone's team.
If used properly, Snorlax can kill almost everything with body slam and crunch. If you run a rest-talk set, ghosts are not so vulnerable, but they can still faint from stall & struggle
Duh. Ash's snorlax is awesome! Snorlax has great stats, and I don't even know why he is not in the top three list
[Newest]I LOVE THIS Pokemon because if it get angry no Pokemon will be in front

This is the first ever pokemon I got after chimchar, Always have him in my team unless trading, once Cynthia was running strong and I had only staraptor, he took down 2 opponents with full health!
Staraptor is a awesome Pokemon. mainly its because he is a flying type AND learns close combat (when I get the chance I am gonna see if it can learn focus blast) so rock types are doomed! BUT close combat does lower some stats (can't remember what... ) overall it is a good Pokemon to have
An already badass flying type with CLOSE COMBAT. Enough said.
[Newest]I defeated Kyogre with Staraptor

Slaking is amazing. Just teach it moves like strength and slash and you'll be unstoppable. Gita impact needs to recharge and truant would take effect anyway.
Truant sucks. It took out Cynthia's Pokémon, but truant will kill you
I have him set up with Giga impact, rest, sleep talk, and chip away for pesky dragon dance. Works like a charm
He should at least be top 3 or 5
[Newest]I'm trying to find a strong normal type for my team I think I'll go for slaking

It can change into any pokemon there is!
How cool is that!?!
Ditto can copy the moves of every Pokemon, and look exactly like them. that's pretty epic, and even better... He's ADORABLE
Ditto can transform and use all the moves of the Pokemon it transforms to so well its equal to any Pokemon it faces but is still awesomer I mean come on a blob of purple goo that can turn into any Pokemon its awesome
[Newest]Ditto is very good so I like it very much

Regigigas sucks because of slow start. You should not put it here.
Rubbish you are regigigas
This Pokemon is awesome dude!

Why isn't this on the top 3?
It has great special attack and moves like Zap Cannon, Recover, Conversion 2, Nasty Plot, and Agility.
With the right setup, it can beat even Arceus
Never used it but planing to get one because it looks like a duck from duck hunt and learns great moves.
He's my favorite and it just Brilliant and if used well and if he has good moves he can wreck!
[Newest]Tri attack deal with it

OH MY GOSH! Ghetsis's Bouffalant, not Hydreigon, literally wrecked my whole team on black and white. Not to mention a wild one with lower levels than me took out a few Pokemon two. I had to get my Chandelure in JUST to take this things Head Charge. It seriously OHKO'ed my whole team except him, no boosts. VOTE BOUFFALANT
The champion alder uses him for a reason, if he becomes our good friend then you unbeatable!

Zangoose is strong and cool looking. With Facade doubling damage after Toxic Orb activating, and having the ability Toxic Boost, it can sweep with just that, OR Simply Swords Dance & Crush Claw Sweep your opponent! Plus, Embargo prevents your opponent from using items! It can also learn Close Combat, and not to mention it's Attack stat is greater than a Lucario's!
Zangoose is probably one of the coolest Pokemon I have ever seen. It's fast, has a variety of move types, and is my ace in every battle. Worthy of #1? I think so.



When I played any Pokemon game, I used a jigglypuff because of my combination of sing and a mixture of moves like: waterpulse, energyball, thunderbolt, psychic, earthquake, icebeam, and the list goes on... Plus it has a heck of a lot of HP especially when it evolves into wigglytuff, and besides... Who can hate a cute Pokemon?

The Contenders

Blissey is a very good Normal type Pokemon. It has a base 255 HP and a base 135 Special Defense. It also has: 5 base Attack, 5 base Defense, 75 base Special Attack and 55 base Speed. They're a lot less overwhelming ass her other two stats but her Special Attack can at least still be usable...This means that it is very unlikely to be OHKO'd by a special move, some say it is virtually impossible. Competitively, it is VERY useful, it can use some excellent support moves: Aromatherapy/Heal -Bell and Wish. It also can learn many offensive moves: Mud Bomb, Ice Beam, Blizzard, Solar Beam, Thunderbolt, Thunder, Psychic, Shadow Ball, Flamethrower, Fire Blast, Focus Blast, Charge Beam (not so good though), Incinerate (also not so good) and finally, Dream Eater (only useful on sleeping Pokemon though, but Blissey doesn't know a sleep status move? ) The other status moves it can learn are Toxic and Thunder Wave which are very good. It can also learn some really strong physical moves too: Earthquake, Egg Bomb, Rock Slide, Giga Impact and Wild Charge (there's more but these seem to be her best physical moves in my opinion) The only good physical moves which Blissey can learn are Return (you need max happiness to get Blissey anyway so this should be strong) ans the AMAZING Seismic Toss (sadly you can only get this by teaching it to Blissey from the gen3. Move tuor...) :( I personally wouldn't use her physical attacks, like ever. I mean 5 base Attack or 75 base Special Attack? You can choose. Its' only real downside is its' Defense stat but to prevent complete failure put 252 ev's in defense, 252 in HP and 4 in Special Attack. I personally think that the best two items for Blissey are Leftovers or Rocky Helmet. If you have Leftovers you would probably want Protect and Toxic in your moveset. Use Toxic and then you can Protect when you feel like it to gain Leftovers health while your opponent deals poison damage, awesome (even though nearly every Pokemon is capable of doing this) To make this even better you can use Protect while being behind a Substitute so you're constantly protected by your Substitute while Protect "Protects" your Subsitute while your opponent loses health. This is a very good stall technique. An excellent Leftovers moveset is: Softboiled, Toxic, Protect and Substitute. Blissey can also learn Thunder Wave but you MUSTN'T put Thunder Wave in this set to replace Toxic; Blissey will have zero ways of dealing any damage. If you have Thunder Wave you would probably also have a support move and an attack. Another good Leftovers set is: Thunder Wave, Heal Bell/Aromatherapy, Ice Beam/Flamethrower/Thunderbolt/Psychic/Shadow Ball, Wish/Softboiled. (there's other Special Attacks to choose but these seem to be the best for a Natural Cure/Healer Blissey) Also, Blissey doesn't have any moves like: Blizzard, Fire Blast or Thunder since they lack PP or accuracy which isn't great. If your Blissey has Serene Grace these moves are great since the less PP/Stronger moves (in this case) have a higher status effect rate. Also, Water Pulse can be very good on a Serene Grace Blissey. If Blissey has a Rocky Helmet Substitute and Protect are bad since you want your opponent to attack you so they take damage from it. In a Rocky Helmet set you need: Softboiled, (better than Wish in a case like this) Offense (one of those Special attacks) and maybe Toxic so they take Toxic and Rocky Helmet damage and the last slot can be whatever. Rocky Helmet only works properly if hit with a Physical move but, really, who'd use a Special Attack on Blissey? And finally, Blissey can learn Stealth Rock from the move tutor in Pokemon BW2 so it can also be a good lead. Overall Blissey is a beast and should really be in the top 10. :D
Blissey is an awesome massive pokemon. It can use Thunder, Psychic, or almost any moves that can Kill other pokemon that are in your way. It is also awesome cause it can use softboiled to heal itself AND heal its teammates. All in one, its an awesome Tank
Blissey is way better then that jigglypuff come on peps were not doing cutest were doing best
[Newest]Blissey is my favorite Pokemon it's cute and apparently very powerful and it has good moves.

In my Pokemon, my ursaring+jolteon combo is pretty much unstoppable
He's a OP bear. What more could you ask for.
Ursaring is my favorite

Looks like a beast, mad attack faster than 90% of all pokemon complete with its tails and amazing mane! No more need be said
Taurus is plain amazing. That's all I gotta say

Mega Kangaskan with power up punch, sucker punch, drain punch, return/fake out. Wicked powerful.
Mega kangaskhan is beast and almost unstoppable definitely my favourite normal type

It's in the damn name: tank. With upwards of 300 hp at level 65 and the move Milk Drink makes her pretty much unstoppable. Then all you have to do is use Body Slam, which I honestly thinks does more damage the heavier you are.
A trainer is famous because of this tank: Whitney. This Pokemon is so strong but so underrated.
He's the most OP pokemon with his milk drink he could own and pokemon that are above him. He might not have the best attack but his deffence is all he needs to own it.

Guys really vote for smeargle! Sure, horrible stats, second worst stat total, but really! Every single move! If you want to be cool at the game get a smeargle with the nature that raises speed and then lowers special attack and hold a focus sash. Maximize health and speed with 252 evs each and then sketch the four moves, spore, to put it to sleep. Spore is grass, has 100 accuracy and can affect all pokemon, including flying and ghost. Then use agility so you wont be outrun. You could use it twice if you want, but if the enemy wakes up you're dead. Some stuff only sleeps for 2 turns, some have berries or abilitys to prevent it, but I would use agility and then I'm faster so then lock on. The next turn, they might wake up, because this would be the third turn, but agility makes you faster, so now use sheer cold. Not horn drill. It doesn't get ghost. Not gullitone. Doesn't get them either (i think. Is it normal or water? ) fissure is ground and doesn't get flying typers. Sheer cold? Yes it gets them all. So to review, that's first up, spore, then agility, lock on then sheer cold. Lock on could be mind reade. Who really cares. Once again, spore, agility, lock on, sheer cold, nature- speed up special attack ore normal attack down ( doesn't really matter which attack, ) then hold a focus sash. You are now unstoppable. Yes, sure, this could totally be stopped and a wasted slot on your team, if the opponent simply has a chesto or lum berry or vital spirit or something like that, but if not, you win.

Aside from being adorable, Delcatty has great stats and some of the strongest moves a normal type can learn on it's own, as well as being able to learn plenty of TM's. Also, assist is awesome.
Why isn't this up in top ten? My delcatty is level 100 and knows these moves, hyperbeam gigaimpact shadow ball and psychic!
While playing Pokemon XY, I came across a beauty. Skitty, my favorite Pokemon, was my first encounter on route 4. It was shiny. It is now a Lv.100 Delcatty with Blizzard, Solarbeam, Play rough, and assist.
It kills everything.

Stoutland is a really awesome dog Pokemon with pretty good stats and he or she can learn the elemental fangs!
She could use retaliate first, and I am happy about it.
Stotlands awesome and a really good Pokemon


Do you do Pokemon Showdown? It's in the first borderline for a reason! Dude could have Huge Power, which is OP, Agility, Earthquake, and anything makes it OP! I also think it learns Swords Dance, so that, too

Eevee is an underrated Pokemon. She is so cute, and has eight different evolutions. She had all sorts of powerful moves such as bite, and skull bash. She can beat a Pokemon with the wonder guard ability easy, since normal and fighting moves are effective against this ability. Eevee is the best normal type ever.
First off. Eevee being cute doesn't make it the best. Second, Eevee being eevee has terrible stats and it is OVERRATED for having 8 cookie cutter evolutions. By cookie cutter I mean they are foxes that were painted and decorated. Thank you.
I think Eevee should the number one normal type Pokemon because it's very cute and awesome it can do many awesome moves like copycat:can copy any move and a whole bunch of other moves yah!
[Newest]What the heck eevee is the best Pokemon EVER! One look from its cute face would melt arceus

I totally agree he's is awesome although I don't think most guys like him
It has great base stats and you can teach it most of every tm there is. Definitely an op Pokemon

Why is Persian way down here? Although his stats are very low, his speed can make up for it, and the attack is OK. It can give you money with pay day, make them flinch with fake out, and learn dark type moves! You can even teach it thunderbolt and shadow ball, two popular and strong moves. Why isn't this at least in the top 10?
Persian can be a very good pokémon, it can earn you cash with Payday, with Technician ability attacks with a 60 attack power will get a boost!

My Persian knows:
Aerial Ace for against the fighting types (90 attack because of Technician ability and never misses)
Feint Attack (also because of the Technician ability and never misses}
Payday STAB move and will earn me money when the time is right it'll make place for Night Slash
And Power Gem at the moment

. Why isn't slaking on this list. It is in fact the strongest non legendary pokemon when talking about base stats. I mean come on! 160 attack? 150 HP and huge defense? Amazing. Speed? WHY? It is 10th strongest of all poke's, including legendaries. So hat it has truant? Stats make up for it! And it can just use yawn...


Well, Raticate can learn Facade, Ice Beam, Crunch, and they're pretty useful moves. I also suggest keeping Tail Whip. It has a stable stats, and its speed is extremely high. It will literally annihilate.
This guy, just this guy I mean he can have an amazing sweep if set up. with super speed and impressive move pool this makes a really good Pokemon which has pulled me out of so many tricky situations
A very balanced Pokemon and easy to get at the first part of the game

Pyroar is awesome! STAB moves with fire and normal moves. it can learn Solarbeam to defeat Watertypes

Lopunny is the coolest Pokemon

Furrets just cool...nothing to say bout that
Are you kidding me? Furret is down here?!

It has one of the most varying move sets in the game! Thunder, ice, and fire punch + a filler move makes it unstoppable!

I love ya Audino
I feel like people think Audino is lame, but every time I've used one it's been able to take hits well, and it can learn a variety of TM's. I think Audino deserves more credit than its been given. And you can't not mention the mega evolution, which makes it Fairy. This gives it an advantage over many types. I love Audinos :D

Skitty is my most cute, adorable, kitten Pokemon ever! I catch a ruby skitty (so I can copy May) but that's only my way when it comes to red clothes in Ruby. Meowth is in love with skitty in "I feel Skitty" in the anime. In PMD RED RESCUE TEAM, I put Secret Power as the others I keep Sing, attract and doubleslap
My Skitty is level 97 and has Assist so its unstoppable!

It has great speed and attack and variety of moves and loocks cool
This pokémon has a wide move pool, and with proper IV and EV training it can sweep like a boss.


It can learn attacks like ice beam and thunderbolt. I used it on my team in Pokemon Ruby and it really helped. It might not always have good attack, but its speed is good. I also used it on my team in Pokemon Y and it surprisingly helped me a lot, because it had this moveset: Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, Return and Slash. Linoone might not have been a Pokemon I necessarily would use for its Attack stat, but thanks to its Speed (and the move Return) it helped me beat the first half of Pokemon Y.
Can learn a lot of non-normal moves

Hello casform can learn almost every type of move maby not top 3 worthy but come on.

This is a monster with technician
It is pretty fast and cute.
It is fast and had high attack and with skill link and technion this thing is awesome give it a kings rock or life orb and you have a major threat

It can learn a variety of moves and with it's ability soundproof it's immune to moves like supersonic


A cat like pokemon... I certainly like cats, but a cat-like POKEMON! Awesome! With its lucky amulet and piercing claws I think its awesomely fantastic!
Meowth is not only cute but cool. Hey people don't like cats well you don't like Meowth


Great stats with an ability that halves physical damage taken. He's got a spot on my team.


Most useful Pokemon in gen 3

Clefairy is my number 1 favorite pokemon she's a cutie I love the best thing about is how she cany use metronome
Wow no put cleafairy up here when I look at this cutie pie all I see is adorableness I loved this pokemon role in the anime withwhitney and when she was by herself this cutie should of been at least 10
I love this unbelievable cuteness she has I love in blue red and leaf green I hade 4 clefairys my opinion cleafairy should be at 10

The best pokemon there is.


Come on people she's the cutest!

This little cute squirrel has the best move pool ever for a 1st stage normal type Pokemon!


We All Know Its True...
Magicarp will soon be the best splasher of all time and will take over the Pokemon world!

Stantler is an awesome Pokemon! He is a great addition to my team for my soul silber nuzlocke. At first, I thought he would be a weak and useless member of my team, but he ends up to be so dominant and powerful. He helped me take out Morty's Gengar and Clair's Kingdra. When Stantler holds the Silk Scarf he is purely UNSTOPPABLE! Stantler is hands-down the best normal type Pokemon ever created!





Has an amazing moveset and is beautiful!







Herider is evolved verion of lilipup and he is lower
