Best Pokemon


The Top TenXW

1CharizardCharizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Best Pokemon and a lot of people's first Pokemon is in gen 1, plus it has two mega evolutions

Charizard is an overrated lizard, the only advantage is two mega evolutions and flight. Lucario on the other hand, sir Erin chose lucario not charizard

Charizard is the best because he can do anything... like kick butt

Charizard is love Charizard is life!

2MewtwoMewtwo 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.

Seriously!? How is Mewtwo all the way down here? It NEEDS to be further up.

Mewtwo is considered a Pokemon, even though he was a scientific experiment clone of Mew. Mew is not nearly as strong as Mewtwo. If they both fought to the death, Mewtwo would have had a hard fight, but come out victorious. He, like Arceus, can copy any technique.

Mew two is more powerful than mew and mew can learn any move and teleport and stuff so mewtwo must be the strongest except maybe kyurem or celebs but mewtwo is probably stronger than celebi even when celebi was encased in the giant grass monster

Charizard sucks

Hey people, we mean top 10 STRONGEST Pokemon not cutest, besides, Teddiursa's MUCH cuter, I mean just because Ash has one doesn't mean it's good, and At least pick Raichu over Pikachu, I mean RESHIRAM AND ARTICUNO ARE BEHIND PIKACHU!

Pikachu is the first Pokemon that Ash obtained and will always be one of his most loyal Pokemon. He has been through the whole series and will never be forgotten in Pokemon history.

Seriously people, why is pikachu over reyquaza mew lugia the three legendary dogs dialga reshiram and every other amazing pokemon. I mean, at least pick raichu... I mean, I love pikachu too, but it's not a very good pokemon. This list isn't for the cutest pokemon, or your favorites, it's for actually good pokemon.

Why does everybody hate pikachu just because he is the mascot. He is a GOOD MASCOT

Arceus is the god of Pokemon. He did create all Pokemon (except Mewtwo), as well as both Pokemon Trios: Creation Trio (Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina) as well as the Weather Trio (Rayquaza, Kyogre, and Groudon). He can also change his type. He has more than 1,000 forms, and he can copy any technique using Judgement.

He have life plates to protect him from every attack. Only a pokemon which can use a lot of different elemental moves E. G regigigas can defeat him

THE GOD OF ALL Pokemon! Arceus came I think too soon, but still awesome. Uber strong and needs to be featured in Pokemon tcg soon.

Arceus is unstoppable - TheKirbyMaster529

5RayquazaRayquaza is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It lives in the ozone layer, and frequently stops battles with Kyogre and Groudon, two other Legendaries.

It has the highest base stat, doesn't need a mega stone, delta stream rocks, and dragon ascent kills all! Like it was able to take on Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre by itself in the past and they are seriously sick themselves. I don't see why it's not #1 or at least #2 behind Mewtwo.

It's the best Pokemon I have ever caught it is now at level 100 and very powerful I can even defeat mewtwo and arceus with my RAYQUAZA I really love it

Rayquaza is number 1 of the Weather Trio, relating to Air-type attacks.

*My personal favorite until Mega Rayquaza came along and replace favorite spots #1 - #721

6MewMew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

Technically, Mew and Arceus are possibly the first two Pokemon in existence. Arceus did create the Pokemon world, however mew has the DNA of all Pokemon, and in the Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum Pokedex, it said that it is possibly the ancestor of all Pokemon. It also means that it possibly made all Pokemon, alongside with Arceus because of it's ability to transform, and use any move in the games (With the exception of draco meteor and secret sword). In the actual world, however, it may be possible for it to use every move we know of today.

My favorite tiny legendary. This Pokemon kicks ass! It can learn any move and it's strong!

Mew is the best Pokemon in the world. Why isn't it number one?

Mew is a sexy beast.

Eevee is a really cool Pokemon that can evolve into different Pokemon depending on your strategy. For example if you need a Psychic type to beat your friend, evolve it into Espeon!

How could you not like it? My game has an ARMY of Eevee lead by a lv. 100 shiny! In my opinion, Eevee is the most unpredictable pokemon when it comes to evolving and the list keeps on growing! Cute, lovable, strong and VERY useful.

It can evolve into not one, or two... But SEVEN. Different Pokemon.

Plus it is so adorable etc. Etc. - Pokeman

Good if your in a pinch for a random type of pokemon - Enderninja327

Lugia stays underwater most of the time because he is so powerful. It is said that an offensive flap of his wings can cause a hurricane that may last for 40 days. Not to mention he is one of the most beautiful Pokemon around.

This thing walls attacks like no other, while still managing to have great speed and decent offenses.

How can this powerhouse be out of this list.


Dragonite is a great Pokemon. It has the 2nd highest base stat total of all non-legendary Pokemon, second to Slaking. But, considering that Slaking's terrible ability, Truant, doesn't allow him to attack twice in a row, Dragonite can safely be considered the better Pokemon. Dragonite has an excellent movepool, including attacks such as Dragon Dance, Outrage, Thunder, Earthquake, Surf, Fire Blast, Aerial Ace, Focus Blast and Rock Slide just via TM and levelling. Via tutoring and egg moves, it can learn Ominous Wind, Draco Meteor, Aqua Tail, Heat Wave, Iron Head, Superpower and Dragon Rush. Pretty amazing.

Dragonite is the best. Apart from the 12 legendary pokemon ahead of him, his base stats are higher than all (but one: Slaking. Really? Slaking? ) other pokemon (beating out several other legendaries as well)

Question. Why is dragonite so far down. it can beat a lot of legendaries. Still, charizard is better, but this Pokemon should be second. Eevee and seperior shouldn't even be up there. Dragonite is the best Pokemon, trust me, - joon2468


Great speed and one of the best abilities in the game in protean turns this Pokemon into a wrecking ball, able to wreak havoc on any unprepared team.

I think greninja should be higher cause his attack and speed is op

One of the best X and Y Pokemon. Needs to be higher

The Contenders


My favorite starter was always Squirtle, but I like Blastoise better. Strong, Mega, and can destroy steel with ease. Look it up.

I love Darkrai. He's the only Pokemon who can give bad dreams, he has a great movepool like Double Team, Nasty Plot, Dream Eater, Dark Pulse, Quick Attack, and Nightmare. But the main reason I love Darkrai is in the anime. In the 10th movie The Rise of Darkrai, Darkrai was considered evil by everyone in Alamos Town. Earlier in time, Darkrai suffered from injuries and wa sprobably caused by Pokemon who thought he was a threat. So Alice's grandmother saw what happened and helped the poor thing. When Dialga and Palkia started brawling near Alamos Town, the entire elements of space and time were starting to evaporate. So Darkrai decided to save Alamos Town and his only friend. And he guarded the town with his life by trying to stop Dialga and Palkia from ruining everything. Dialga and Palkia were fighting each toher at the beginning, but later in the fight they start fighting together. Darkrai still fought on. But he was destroyed when Roar of Time and Spacial Rend both hit him. He ...more - bubbles1111

Darkrai... Oh yes, get yourself a Lum Berry when your against this dude! With a Nasty Plot/Dark Void/Dark Pulse combo, he will actually rip through the toughest of team's. Take Lance, for example. - Pokeman

Darkrai is the only Pokemon that can put Pokemon to sleep and inflicts damage and you should see him in the Pokemon movies. So awesome!. I think he should be first

I like darkrai and it is my favourite dark and legendary Pokemon.

His evil grin is a warning not to mess with him, lest you eat one of his powerful shadow balls.

14LucarioLucario is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Lucario first appeared as a central character in the film Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and later appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and subsequent sequels, also appearing more.

Lucario kicks but I think it should be higher ranked even though I love rayquaza to it would be no match Lucario I have killed thousands using him there is no match for him even against arceus Mewtwo and rayquaza you wan't a good reliable and extremely powerful Pokemon with a good move pool this is it
Bow before lucario strongest Pokemon in the world

Lucario should be ranked first. He has an awesome movepool. He can take many hits. He is part steel, so he has high defense. He is resistant to many types. He also has great attack power and special attack power.

Lucario You Are a HORRIBLE Midget Pokemon And you SUCK

Lucario enough said

So relax is epic, he can beat Pokemon up to 15 levels greater to him because of his high hp, attack, and defense, opponent still too strong? Just use yawn, they are asleep and you get free hits for 2-6 turns, I used to underestimate normal type Pokemon, but snorelax makes normal types seen strong.

Charizard? Seriously? You're kidding me! He's one of the weakest starters out there, and Charizard gets a free pass for #1 just because of nostalgia? What about Snorlax? I don't see genwunners worshipping this guy. He deserves it- he can actually be used in battle and take some hits. High HP, Attack, and Sp. Defense. He doesn't need Sp. Attack, HP makes up for Defense, and low Speed- what were you expecting? Snorlax has charm in my opinion because of how funny he is and his concept of living a life only eating a lot and sleeping for a long time. Snorlax has only 1 weakness, and he has strength to spare. So could somebody tell me what Charizard is so good for? I've never played Red and Blue, and I already think Snorlax is amazing. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to deal with a mob of immature genwunners outside my front door so... See ya'

I voted on this to say this thing is crappy. I kill it with one hit with my level one diglett!

It's an onion fairy- what's not to love?


Okay... this is stupid. Pikachu better than all of these others? No...
Pikachu is awful

Tyranitar has one of the coolest designs in the game, and an awesome ability. He also has an enormous movepool, great bulk, and fantastic offenses. His one weakness is a low speed stat, which can be remedied by dragon dance or rock polish

19BlazikenBlaziken, known in Japan as Bashāmo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Please vote dis totally epic Pokemon up...

I have a blaziken level 100 and its really good. Besides rayquaza

I love his stance and the idea, to me this Pokemon is like the wise owl of the Pokemon world

I was having a rather interesting internal monologue debating whether I should vote for Bob Saget or Jerry Seinfeld, but after some time, I came up with an effective conclusion: Bob Saget is obviously the best choice for a starter. Bob Saget's pure fire typing removes the threat of psychic types (take that, stupid Emboar and Blaziken), and is very impactful against grass types. Seriously, Bob Saget sweeps grass types like OXI CLEAN removes grass stains. Billy Mays would be proud. Next is the design; I think Bob Saget looks like the amalgamation of magnificence with his blue fur and fuzzy sweaters. He is supposed to look like a honey badger, while also conveying the true Full House essence we all know and love. Bob Saget's moveset certainly isn't lacking, with the killer Eruption and Flamethrower by his side. He can up his defense a bit, but that's definitely forvigable. Overall, Typhlo- I mean Bob Saget, is the one of best.

My first pokemon ever I made a good choice when I was seven.

Typhlosion is number 34 what about number 1?
