The Top TenXW

1PikachuPikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

Know Pokemon is better than Pikachu he is powerful aggressive but most of all he is SO cute! I just love his lightning tail!

Cute and awesome it can electrify you and it hated ash at first lovein it I mean, how can you not love this Pokemon ok going too far I am not going back to skitty is the cutest all over again but just remember, pikachu is awesome bye pikapipipipi

It's very adorable, cute and most of all very strong. No one can loose PIKACHU...

Two teenagers, a talking cat, and a punching bag stalked a kid for 20 years just to get their hands on this guy. Either Jessie and James are really stupid, or Pikachu is the best. (Gengar is my favorite though)

2CharizardCharizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Charizard is way tougher than any pikachu, the only reason he is below pikachu is because pikachu is the main Pokemon of the Pokemon franchise. But strictly for strength, power, and ability, Charizard is the best Pokemon, WAY better than Pikachu!

Um, hello? It matters on how the stats and how the trainer trains it. Not how big it is. - TristGamer

AMAZING POKEMON charizard is one of my most favorites he's so COOL

The most dangerous fire type pokemon in all of the regions including the unova region starter empoar. It has great moves such as overheat, flamethrower. It also has awesome details, GO CHARIZARD!

Charizard is the most awesomeness, coolest, amazing that is why I think he shod

3MewtwoMewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

Damn it!
This brings back memories... I was a boy 12, to be exact, I had a master ball and I was ready. For some reason I thought oh this is not enough of a challenge so I weakened it down to low health with my charizard's fire spin but it burnt it and killed the Mewtwo.
I was furious but I still love him

The ultimate Pokemon with ultimate moves, my one in soul silver could destroy every Pokemon in the elite four without fainting, love it

Mewtwo is better than any pokemon. He has character development and he is the most powerful Pokemon of all the time and he can control minds so he is stronger than Arceus. He also had a really sad childhood and he is very interesting. He is also kind since we all know how he has reformed. He is just the best. Charizard deserves 2nd place or on the same place with Mewtwo and Pikachu should be after them. Pikachu is cute but he doesn't have so much character development and personality as the other two. Plus he is the face of Pokemon so that's why he is popular

Should be number 1 it is a psychic type legendary with the highest base stats of all

4MewMew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

Mew is the First Legendary and Mew is cute. Mew can learn any move, Arceus can't learn every move
I have one my self and even Ash meets Mew 3 times! Mew is pretty rare. Mew like kirby but better! Arceus is like God but Mew pink and pink is awesome!

Arceus? Nope. Mew is the real PokeGod. It can learn ANY move due to the fact it is the ancestor of ALL Pokemon and the Pokedex says it's so rare that experts consider it to be a mirage. Not even the developers of the original games were aware that it had been programmed into the Pokedex until the guy who had created it came clean after the games were released, that's why it never appears naturally in the wild in Red/Blue/Yellow. To cap it all off, if you've seen Pokemon the First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back, you'll know exactly what an strong, adorable and playful Pokemon Mew is. Awesome.

It is the strongest among the pokemon... It is cUte IOts is awesome it has a power of psychic, bubble bim and safeguard but most of all his legendary but twice his also an ancient pokemon...!

My favourite because it's cute and says mew mew

5Arceus

are you serious arceus hatched mew for breakfast he could fight giratina, dialga, palkia all at once

Cool Cool Cool. But I have to admit, he looks a little scary. I am more of a cute, cuddly and fluffy Pokemon lover and this Arceus fellow dose not fit any of those categories. However, in tough battles he looks like the story that would stay by your side till the end. Any Pokemon who is loyal to his trainer is my friend.

He is as cute as he is Dangerous
Com'on He is number 1 by any means
Pikachu Guys look like you don't watch Pokemon episode anyone can beat him
He is with Ash for three 3 region yet loses from snivy in one move

Arceus is a God for the sake of Pikachu! And you treat him like this! In number five!

6Ash

He might have never aged, But he aims to be the Pokemon Master. - TexasRealm

Ash is classic, ten years old and he has already had a fivesome with all of his past travelling companions

He's so handsome and cute and he's loving and caring.

He's pretty cool but no offense his voice is annoying

7Misty

Misty is the best, why on earth isn't she ranked the best?! Seriously she is the best and the one everyone is in love with! Please vote for her because she is the best ever! She was one of Ash's first companions, she is also the best so vote for Misty as I cannot stress how much better she is than the other losers!

How is magikarp higher than her? Misty is the best character in the entire show! She deserves to be in the top tens, not 23 place! Misty is pretty and I find myself a lot like her cause of her attitude. Water is the best Pokemon type witch is also why I like her. She should meet Dawn. Misty needs to be ranked higher.

She dose not defeat May but everyone else, the only reason why she's down here is because she's a little bit of a wimp, like Ash.

Best character ever

8Brock

Brock is hilarious because he constantly falls in love with beautiful girls. (constantly means nearly every episode that he is in! ) And also he is a gym leader.. I guess that's cool...

A former gym leader joined the journeys of Ash and the female trainer from Kanto to Sinnoh. Great character. I laugh every time he falls in love with the women, My sister once fantasized about Brock. - TexasRealm

So originally awesome I think like good cook just like cilan and has that taste for girls that makes his Pokemon come out hysterical

His frying pan is a drying pan

9MayMay is a female companion to Ash in the generation 3 anime. She was also the female character in Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire. May (anime) debuted in the 275th episode, "Get the Show on the Road!" She was going to be a trainer, but wasn't excited about it. After meeting a ...read more.

I liek Mudkipz too but I had to vote for May. I think I cried when Misty left, but I really don't miss her anymore. I miss May though. Will we ever get too see her join Ash again? I doubt it. I've kinda lost faith in the writers nowadays. I mean, Brock is even gone forever now! I just check Serebii like once every month to check if something interesting has happened to Pokemon lately. It was a few years ago I got really good news now, but I'll keep waiting. If I got to make one wish I would take May back to Pokemon. Who cares about money human piece anyway?! Can't we at least get to see all the old characters visit pallet when Ash comes home next time, or is it too much for you writers to give us old hardcore fans?

May is the best Developed Pokemon female-lead, and actually it seems very realistic, she did have something else she desires rather than Misty, and as for Dawn, She is too Obnoxious, a little bit annoying for me!

How is May not in the top 5 let alone Ash? May was the sweetest, prettiest, most unique female character of the whole series. Plus, she competed in seventeen contests, won fourteen ribbons, collected seven Pokemon, and fully evolved three. How is she at number 9?

May seemed so stuck up but she gradually changed into a sweet and pretty tomboy unlike misty

10Red

Why in mews name is ash above red?! Ash has friends with him all the time and yet still can't beat the elite 4. Also ash can some reason only hold 10 pokemon at once cause the rest "have to train". However red is the pokemon master. He defeated the whole team rocket at ten years old, meanwhile ash can't beat 3 of them at 21 years old. Red is truly the best character I mean look up "boss" in a dictionary and you'll see red. Look upretard you'll see ash.

I adore Red, not gonna say he's the best above all tough, that is a matter of opinion.

Also, laugh out loud at Satoshi's haters.

Ash is a looser he can't defeats only 3 team rocket but red crushes the whole team rocket group and smashes elite four and he is the champion of Pokemon.

Watch Pokemon origins or read Pokemon adventures

The Contenders

11Dragonite

Dragonite is strong and can learn some very powerful moves. Also dragonite was from the early games

Dragonite is strong and very likeable, but I think Charizard is better and more powerful. Still, dragonite is one of my favorite Pokemon.

Dragonite will always be in my team when I need to battle trainers online, he's always been my all time favorite Pokemon so far! That is, unless another Pokemon tops it, but Dragonite will always be the best in my book.

DRAGONITE NEEDS #1 (bluestar from warrior cats is awesome)

12Arcanine

Arcanine is awesome because of his agility and power

Arcanine is awesome. With Extremespeed and learning two of my three favourite moves (crunch and flamethrower, only missing Earthquake. ) Arcanine has awesome speed and well rounded stats, too.

When it is angry, it is almost unstoppable.

I love arcanine if it was real when I'm mad or happy or sad or scared I WOULD JUST HUG ITS FLUFFINESS! *Ahem* And when I'm scared it will protect me and when I'm cold it will keep me warm.

13James

Seriously, who doesn't love this guy? He Is so ADORABLE!

James! Such a sick character, one of his best quotes 'No one's carried me since my mama! '

He is literally the best, and his and Jessie's relationship is one of the highlights of the series. - RebeccaDarking

So Cute and Funny

14Eevee

Eevee can evolve into 7 other different types of Pokemon, each with different stats depending on their types. It's also SUPER cute but has some pretty average attacks.

Eevee can evolve into one of seven different types, he/she is adorable in any form and makes an awesome fighter and friend

Eevee can evolve to 7 characters and people doesn't know his/her gender that is what makes people expect him trying to think about his gender.

Eevee is unique and simply adorable

15Magikarp

Mess with this pokemon and when it evolves you'll regret it

Magikarp is undoubtedly the best pokemon ever existed. The gamers usually judge a pokemon by it's movepool and power with it's design made by the game designer but magikarp is a simple pokemon if trained the right way can kill arceus!

Magikarp is awesome because it is so cool

It's a funny Pokemon

16Bulbasaur

My favourite Pokemon. He is number 1 on the pokedex for a reason. He is the only starter Pokemon to be 2 types in his first form (poison and grass) so he gets my vote. If you love bulbasaur vote for him.

I love bulbasaur! At first in the anime when ash first met him he didn't trust ash and I liked his attitude! He's cute and even though he's not to strong in the Pokemon cards I don't really care.

Bulbasaurs the best. He is part dinosaur, part plant. What other Pokemon is like that? He is easy to raise and he is brave. I think he should at least be number 3

If He Evolves To Venusaur He is Very Powerful - kormo

17Lapras

I have a lapras on my team and it is my favorite pokemon. It can learn awesome moves and it is a ice type one of my favorite types in all of pokemon.

Lapras is nice and funny and playful

How is this low sheer and very powerful sheer is a one hit ko! Lapras is amazing and nobody doesn't know that!

18Turtwig

My first starter and once she evolves and gains the ground-type component can take out Infernape any day, plus she has a great move set for a basic pokemon.

I got him and was like "Aw, look at the adorable little turtle-thingy! " Once he became a Torterra, he was ownage!

I love turtwig! I lost the card I had to it, but I know I have it somewhere.

My first ever time I played Pokemon my first starter was turtwig

19Jolteon

He is so awesome because he is electric type and that is just plain AWESOME. I love him so much and I also have him on the game so that is pretty cool.

Simply awesome, fast in terms of speed and quite powerful in terms of the moves it learns as well as its high Sp. ATK

I love ho he looks and the out her forms are cute to but this one looks stronger and they can help when you don't have elections working he or she can give you some power just by thunderbolt

Jolteon's body is so spiky, it's also one of my favourite Pokemon of all because it's the evolve form of Eevee and I love all the evolve form's of Eevee - Vallarino

20Empoleon

Empoleon, Charizard and Venasaur = The 3 Pokemon who will always be in my Pokemon team.

All three Look amazing.

Best starter Pokemon evolution ever. Period. There is no comparison. Even piplup was so cute!

I didn't like piplup in the anime but Empoleon is awesome cause barry has one

Empoleon is boss. That's all I can say.
