The Top Ten

1
Arceus
Arceus is not in the number one slot for a variety of reasons. Firstly, it is a legendary only obtainable through events. Secondly, Arceus cannot just "Change it to Zap Plate or Icicle Plate to beat Flying-normal types," because then Arceus would be electric or ice type, not normal. Thirdly, the Staraptor evolution line is one of the first encountered in the Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum games, so more people use it, and the line is closer to their heart. Also, Staraptor is a genuinely good Pokémon. Finally, this is just my opinion, and will spark some debate, but in my opinion, Arceus isn't a Pokémon. Think about it. If Arceus created the universe, which it may or may not have, but if it did, then it created Mew. Mew is the ancestor of ALL Pokémon. Thus, if Arceus came before Mew, which was the first Pokémon, then Arceus can in no way be a Pokémon. If you managed to have the patience to read through this whole post, good for you. Oh, also, I'm sort of disappointed that somebody said "WHAT THE H*** THIS THINGS STARTS AT LEVEL 80 STARAPTOR IS ONLY 36 MINIMUM LEVEL! " Well, have you ever heard of this really neat thing called TRAINING!?
I don't have a hang of normal Pokemon, but still I have voted Arceus solely for the fact that its raw power and consistently humongous stats across the table ( every stat is 120 base power ), which give it the highest collection of base stats ( 720 ) depict its superiority over all other Pokemon.
Now everybody cannot rip apart teams with Judgement and Extremespeed while living along with Recover and Nasty Plot... Only God can!
ARCEUS IS JUST THE ABOVE MENTIONED!
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

2Staraptor
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!
If arceus wasn't made I'm sure staraptor would be #1 recommended moveset fly brave bird close combat and return prof Rowan gives it to you in sandgem town after receiving a pokedex any way staraptor is a OHKO and it's surprising from a tiny little bird thing to an OP gigantic bird who can completely destroy rock types he's amazing for me Cynthia knoked out my infernape with her togekiss my staraptor was the only thing left and he took out her togekiss lucario and garchomp I was surprised and extremely happy and I beat Cynthia
An already badass flying type with CLOSE COMBAT. Enough said.

3Snorlax
This guy is amazing, with the right move set he has a place on anyone's team.
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
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

4Ditto
It can change into any pokemon there is!
How cool is that!?!
This has to be #1. Ditto can change into ANY Pokemon! It can't get any cooler than that!
The absolute best Pokemon ever! Can beat arceus by copying it! DuH!

5Bouffalant
THIS POKEMON IS AMAZING HIGH DEFENSE AND ATTACK so AMAZING MOVES MEGA HORN HEAD CHARGE TAKE DOWN AND SWORDS DANCE TO POWER UP ITS ATTACK EVEN MORE! SWORDS DANCE PLUS HEAD CHARGE = MASSIVE DAMAGE! IT IS so AMAZING WITH IT TOOK DOWN MY LATIOS AND REGIGIGAS!
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
Beast all I have to say #1 all day.

6Slaking
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.
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

7Porygon-Z
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
Porygon Z is a great special attacker with a powerful movepool.
It also is genderless, preventing charm and captivate to fail. It can learn zap cannon, to stop fairy types. Porygon Z also only weak to fighting, and can counter fighting types easily with psychic. Lastly, he is an amazing support Pokemon, with moves like trick room. He should be in the top 5 at least.
Never used it but planing to get one because it looks like a duck from duck hunt and learns great moves.

8Zangoose
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.

AJ5197

HE IS COOL, AWESOME AND HAS GOOD MOVES
BEst pokemon ever. If you disagree, you're wrong.

9Regigigas
This Pokemon is awesome dude!
Rubbish you are regigigas

10Jigglypuff
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

11Blissey
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

12Ursaring
He's a OP bear. What more could you ask for.
In my Pokemon, my ursaring+jolteon combo is pretty much unstoppable
Ursaring is my favorite

13Smeargle
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.

14Kangaskan
Mega kangaskhan is beast and almost unstoppable definitely my favourite normal type

15Tauros
Looks like a beast, mad attack faster than 90% of all pokemon complete with its tails and amazing mane! No more need be said

16Delcatty
Why isn't this up in top ten? My delcatty is level 100 and knows these moves, hyperbeam gigaimpact shadow ball and psychic!

17Stoutland
Stoutland is a really awesome dog Pokemon with pretty good stats and he or she can learn the elemental fangs!
This Pokemon is black and white's staraptor!... Theoritically unfeazant is but it ain't good... This Pokemon is as strong and reliable as staraptor!
It deserves to be in the top 5!
Stotlands awesome and a really good Pokemon

18Diggersby

19Pidgeot

20Miltank
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.
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.

21Eevee
Eevee is the best normal type ever it's got eight evolutions which are: fairy, dark, fire, water, grass, ice, electric and psychic.
Eevee is the ultimate Pokemon
So cute, and it has 8 evolutions.

22Lickilicky
It has great base stats and you can teach it most of every tm there is. Definitely an op Pokemon

23Vigorath
. 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...

24Braviary

25Pyroar
Pyroar is awesome! STAB moves with fire and normal moves. it can learn Solarbeam to defeat Watertypes

26Persian
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

27Raticate

28Furret
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!

29Lopunny

30Audino
I love ya Audino

31Skitty
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

32Ambipom
It has great speed and attack and variety of moves and loocks cool

33Chansey
WHY THE HECK is chansey at the top ten! It hs more than 800 hp at level 100

34Meloetta

35Meowth
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
