The Top Ten

1
Metagross
Get it hammer arm, gyro ball, earthquake, and explosion. Get it a relaxed nature so it raises its defense and lowers its speed. It is normally slow and has a nature to make it slower. This means not only does gyro ball get STAB but it also has more effect when you are slower. You might need to use hammer arm on some enemies, but that would make you slower, which makes gyro ball even stronger. Earthquake is good for getting other steel types, and also poison types, not that either of those would be able to hurt U.steel is weak to fire, so earthquake can help with that too. Ground is super-effective on electric and rock, too. If a steel type can use magnet rise or has levitate, use hammer arm. Only use explosion in an emergency, or if you have like 20 health left. It would make you die, but also probably the opponent, and if you have 20 hp you are probably going to die soon anyways.
Just awesome and so much powerful. It has a base stat total of six hundred. It's speed is poor comparing to its other stats. It has a base speed of seventy. But it can learn agility to deal with its speed. Powerful in attack and defense no doubtly makes it the best steel pokemon.
Don't get me wrong. Aggron is one of my favourites- he's wicked- but Earthquake. Skarmory is cool too. But given the choice, seriously, Metagross all the way. Metagross has a 600 best, making him a pseudo-legendary. It has intelligence that passes that of a supercomputer. It is a brutal attacker. Not to mention Shiny Metagross looks awesome. Admit it- you SO wish you could ride on one of these.

2Aggron
I have to admit that Aggron is one of the best steel types. its ability is Rock Head, There fore it cannot take recoil damage, making its use of double-edge very effective. Aggron has a great move set, being able to learn electric, fighting, rock, and dark moves as well as its base types, steel and ground. His speed isn't very high, which is why his move autotomize is good, boosting his speed stat. It is also a massive tank. its defense is so high, not even a fighting move will one shot it. It can also mega-evolve in gen 6, making it even better.
Best steel type ever... He can even beat legendaries... With many resistance and coverage of weaknesses.. He becomes unbeatable... He's the best in hoenn region... Capable of destroying the pseudo legendary pokemon of hoenn salamence..
My aggron can literally take a stab earthquake twice and rip a hole in his foes team with head smash and iron head (which are both stabs). Add in earthquake and aqua tail and you have a force to be recond with.

3Lucario
Aura Sphere gonna kill you all. End of story.

Lucario got voted no. 1 fighting type, so let's make him no. 1 in steel, too. Although as good as Lucario is, Metagross is going to be some competition to outrank.

All of fighting's weaknesses got canceled out by his steel side, so he's got all the weaknesses of steel and that's it.

Hey, Lucario also has the best look. I mean, doesn't it look beast how he's kneeling down and is giving you a menacing stare (that's in heart gold/soul silver)?

Let's face it: Lucario is the best.
Not only is he my favourite fighting type, but it's also my favourite steel type! He is also the top fighting types in sinnoh or maybe the only new one
Lucario, my favourite Pokemon, my first shiny and the one who helps me beat anything in my path! Seriously when battling against friends they always give me the death stare because they can't beat my Lucario. I always need one on my team and god that speed! That speed has won me a lot of battles... Lucario need to be top, I mean look at HIM. Obviously he need to be top.

4Skarmory
It just rocks! It has only 2 weaknesses after countering both ground and fighting moves with it's type combination. Way high defense, awsaumn look and high attack. It should be number 1 on every flying or steel type pokemon list.
Great Pokemon! It is way too low though on this top ten list
Hey! Someone put Skarmory on number one! It's in-vunerable to ground type moves, and good against fighting and ground! It only has two weaknesses! Come on people! Skarmory better fly up to number one soon!

5Scizor
I have him and he is a total beast. He has been a nothing more than a powerhouse in many battles. And with only one weakness compared to the 4 that Metagross has, the three Lucario has, the three Aggron has, three for Empoleon, 2 for skarmory, 4 for excadrill, and 4 for steelix, it kind of makes me mad he's not higher on this list. He has great stats, a solid move pool and a mega evolution to boot. It's speed is massive if trained right and if you give it a decent set of moves to work with it's speed, it can even deal with fire types before they have a chance to do anything. Scizor for the win!
Scizor is really awesome. It has a good base attack stat and it looks awesome. It can also learn some powerful moves!
Why isn't. He number 1 he only has one weakness and one of the bast base attack

6Mawile
Why hasn't Mawile got more votes!
It's a steel fairy!
Mawile is the best

7Steelix
Steelix = Super Powered Onix, I'm shocked its not higher up, its super massive and potentially super powerful, and its the icon of what a Steel type Pokemon should be..
Steelix is AMAZING! I used him, and took out the entire Dragon Gym in Pokemon White 2 by himself. His Defense is epic, and he can definitely hold his own in any battle.
Iron tail, Earthquake than whatever you want. Ground makes fire no threat, and can't be hit by poison type moves.
A+++

8Magnezone
A special attack to rival the best of pokemon, an ability that is the nightmare of other steel types, and a decent all around tank makes Magnezone one of the best steel types in my mind.
Definitely my favorite pokemon
Double weakness to ground (not if you have "magnet rise"), weakness to fighting and fire, normal damage from water, inmunity to poison and resistance to all the other.

9Dialga
I think people are forgetting about Dialga. Sure there are plenty of great steel types but Dialga's raw power is what makes it automatically a uber Pokemon.
Why isn't dialga higher? IT CAN CONTROL TIME! And it's stats are awesome, both offensive land defensively. It's the second best of any pokemon ( except mewtwo) and can learn roar of time
Why's dialga 14th he should be 1st he could control time and just beat the crap out of anything stupid people these days
And pay attention to the series

10Empoleon
Empoleon is a Pokemon which you can pull out and tank almost anything. He is one of my favourite tanks
Empoleon is one of the best steel types. He is also one of the best starter pokemon, He help me beat the champion level for pokemon bw2
Empoleon was the very first Pokemon I raised to level. 100, he is such a Boss

The Contenders

11Escavalier
Awesome, the only problem with it is you have to trade with Shelmet to evolve it. Better than Scizor I think.
He as great ability
He needs to be number 1 or 2, meagross and him have equal attack stats..
Make him an OU

12Jirachi
One whole week every millenia it grants wishes. Not only that it can commit martydom with doom desire, you take it out in two turs it takes you out

13Aegislash
There are so many great steel types, but aegislash takes my vote because of its great ability. Get it with swords dance or iron defense depending on how you use it, shadow sneak, iron head, and sacred sword, making it a great wall and sweeper at the same time, a force to be reckoned with, the gen 6 Pokemon really should get more credit.
The sword of mind games.
Awesome... Ghost n steel really helpful

14Ferrothorn
Ferrothorn is fantastic defensively and is well supported with an attack stat above 90. His speed is terrible, but actually allows Gyro Ball to hit for 280 (also due to STAB). Overlooked but very useful!

15Foretress
A really great wall. My most dependable Pokemon in Pokemon colleseum. It has one weakness, fire. It learn very great competitive moves, such as spikes, toxic, explosion, earthquake and rapid Spin etc.

16Registeel
Registeel has amazing defenses and because of its pure steel type it has many resistances an immunity but only 3 weaknesses
Awesome steel type golem robot but I love thos guy

17Aron
I just loved catching my first Aron in hoenn! I couldn't wait for it to be an aggron
Just because Aron one of my favorite Pokemon. And because I made list it gave some power to the order of it. Best doesn't always have to be best in battles.

Pikatwo

Why is Aron higher then Bronzong, Bisharp, Excadrill, Genesect and Cobalion

MEGAMANZEROSTRIDER


18Excadrill
One thing to say excadrill is awesome
I don't know what I would do without my shiny excadrill #sostrong
Insanely high attack stats and with Sand Rush you get an incredible fast killing machine!

19Probopass
This Pokemon is so good should at least be 8th just because of its awesome special defense
Awesome Pokemon this should be at least 8th because of its mad special defines

20Bronzong
Bronzong might not be a good attacker and is really slow but if you give him trick room, gyro ball, toxic and stealth rock he can tank up damage and whittle down the foes health
Bronzong should be number 2. OK I admit he's no were a near as good as metagross but with the right moves it could wipe the floor with lucario VOTE BRONZONG! His defense and special defense are outstanding wipes out 7th gym in platinum no problem. He's also easy to get just evolve bronzor at level 33 and all your problems will be solved.
Lower speed stat for better Gyroball. Higher Sp. Definitely Type protects from most other attacks. Fire attack and be rick rollout'd, can be an annoyance tank with staying power. Can further defenses with light screen and reflect. With annoyance strategy will easily beat metagross as it has superior special defense and manuevers to keep it healthy. Maybe not first place but please dethrone metagross.

21Klinklang
Practically magnezone but without 4X weak to ground

22Bastiodon
How the hell is probopass beating this thing it is better than that piece of garbage and it is a dinosaur thing. VOTE BASTIODON!
First of all it was my 1st Pokemon not including the starter and is pretty bulky
Such a tank Guaranteed awesomeness

23Heatran
Heatren is the best Pokemon anybody could get so you should really only vote for this guy me and him beat the Pokemon league alone and we did it with nothing to heal with. and he was only at level 50 and he did not ever go on Pokemon amy or super training and I am not lying. he is insanely inecredibley strong if anybody is reading this and they like heatmor they have a heck of some taste and if you don't know what that means it means you have a really good choice.
HEATRAN THE TANK (and steel types are made to TANK! ) - why this title? - This Pokemon, the only fire/steel type, has five resistances 25% damage, 2 immunities 0%, and four regular times 2 resistances 50%... Offensively this is the only Pokemon with Magma Storm, the only partial-trap move with 100+ which lets me switch and murder any Pokemon.
More facts- Learns Dragon Pulse for coverage. PERFECT STATS! 91 HP (386 life), 106 definitely (342), and 106 special definitely (342) makes his life to defense 1:1 which means it has the highest the potential of taking hits on both sides with its total stats.

24Mega Lucario
Lucario rocks alone'how good ios its mega

25Cobalion
I though cobalion is a legendary Pokemon with quiet high defense and the leader of the swords of justice

26Durant
Has incredible speed and good moves like dig and iron head
Has high attack and speed and doesn't get hurt by poison

27Magneton

28Mega Klinklang

29Doublade
Give it an evolite and WHAM, pretty much an invincible Pokemon

30Mega Metagross
Come on! New alpha sapphire omega ruby It's a new mega! I have no idea what it's like but it looks epic!

31Nosepass

32Bisharp
Although he has a quad weakness to fighting, he's immune to both physic AND poison. If you train him properly, his attack stat can go through the roof.
I love bisharp, the way he looks and his moveset, which is pretty good. Also, one of his abilities, defiant, raises his attack two stages when an opponent lowers ANY of his stats.
BISHARP IS BEAST! I have a shiny one on x and y and he tears through teams! Once he gets a swords dance, sucker punch, iron head, and pursuit wrecks everything! VOTE FOR THIS GUY!

33Honedge

34Genesect
A 4x weakness to fire give it he water drive and he can use techno beam and get rid of fire/ground/rock type pokemon

35Klefki
I love this Pokémon! But getting its Shiny form is a pain in the plot. Better not take as long to find and Shiny Growlithe did.
A key to victory.
