The Top TenXW
Come on people?! Tyranitar crushes anything and everything!
Epic love this Pokemon defeat anything in its path
Tyranitar is the best. The people saying absol is the best don't know what they're talking about. I have him on alpha sapphire and he destroys anything he faces. You throw a water type out, teach him thunderbolt. Grass? How about an ice beam. Only real counter would be fighting, which I'm sure there's a move he can learn to counter that. And anyways, you can't wipe a team with one Pokemon. You need to have those types in your team to counter the ones your current Pokemon can't beat, so in this case a flying or psychic type would be perfect.
Come on guys! Your saying he looks awesome? He's the colour of wasabi and he's fat. I think you should give some other dark type Pokemon some credit, there is most definitely better dark Pokemon out there! It has great moves for all around, I'll give it that, but you can easily get more Pokemon on your team so you can get a better dark Pokemon.V81 Comments
Absol is totally the best because if it weren't for him disasters would happen all over plus he is like the coolest Pokemon ever and he isn't evil even though people think he is he is just trying to do what's best for the fate of the world. I love you absol you rock!
I think Absol is underrated. It has high attack. Make sure it has the ability super luck. It increases its critical hit ratio. Teach it Night Slash, which make the critical hit higher. And psycho cut, to deal with fighting types, and it also has high critical hit. And also, give it the scope lens, which makes critical hit ratio even GREATER
Absol is indeed a incredibly strong dark type! Tyranitar is only higher up because he is one of the most overrated Pokemon EVER! Don't evolve your larvitars! Anyway Absol is great because its the disaster Pokemon, with rather decent speed, and nice attack power! So vote Absol because Tyranitar is overrated!
Best ever pokemon. Used it in Emerald to kill the first 2 elite four.V112 Comments
I've once beaten three Dragonites by using these four moves: faint attack, sand attack, confuse ray and moonlight. Pissed my opponent off by sand attack and confuse ray... And 'if' my opponent attack landed successfully after struggling from confusion and low accuracy, I just heal using moonlight (not mention Umbreon's amazing defenses). And of course I kept attacking by the inevitable move faint attack, it was just awesome beating three Dragonites with an Umbreon! Definitely one of my favorites. - nabilbss
I loved Umbreon in Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness. It and Espeon made one epic team that could plow through that game and all others in double battles. Even in multiplayer, Umbreon is one of the best to have on your team just because it can last so long!
Umbreon is awesome looking, has amazing defense, and can learn quite a few different moves. All this makes him the best dark Pokemon out there. Simply epic Pokemon! One of the best!
My favourite pokemon, when I played pokemon gold he was the strongest pokemon in my team even against red he was very usefulV118 Comments
Darkrai is the most awesome and powerful dark type pokemon and he will always be. Beside being top dark type pokemon Darkrai is one of the best out of all the pokemon. Impressive sp. Attack and speed it is superior to the all other dark types. IN Addition it is legendary and only pokemon that can learn darkvoid
SO NO OTHER DARK TYPE POKEON CAN BEAT DARKRAI
Pretty much Darkrai. I mean, he's Freddy Kruegar (Pokemon-Wise, only the killing is omitted). His appearance is also badass and overall, this pokemon is pretty powerful, is a force to be reckoned with with his dangerous abilities and is a mix of Red (My favorite color), Black and White.
But however, the reason why e deserves to be Number 1 is his portrayal in The Rise of Darkrai. I mean, a Darkrai who was hated and shunned by the people of Alamos Town (Except Alice and Tonio) risked his life protecting it from the two of the Creation trio Pokemon (Dialga and Palkia). And yes, he also has a personality and what was so shocking was that he became a hero of the town that everyone hated. That, is what makes a character a really strong one and I hope people could understand what could something like Darkrai could do :). - hussaintalib
darkrai really is the best
mine has: dark pulse, dark void, dream eater, nightmare
i ruled whole battle revolution with him!
I can't believe it! DARKRAI IS NUMBER 4! The first thing I expected when I came to this page was to see Darkrai on number oneV102 Comments
It took a lot of work to get my hydreigon, but it was all worth it. Mine around level 70, and knows fire blast, earthquake, tri attack and Draco meteor. It so great how it can learn so many different kinds of moves.
Even though he's hard to obtain he is a BEAST when you get him
Versatile and strong enough to be one of the most viable Pokemon and threatening in battle, in my opinion it should be no.3 if we where talking competitive battling but only behind tyranitar and Darkrai.
Number 3! lets goV20 Comments
this may be a dark/fire type but it still has one nasty bite - SoulSilver
LOVE BOTH umbreon and houndoom LOTS but houndooms lower in rating!
Absol and Houndoom are easily the best to dark types. Fast and strong, bringing in both an amazing ATK and SPATK onto the field. Not to mention houndooms move pool. His fire moves can take out almost any pokemon, and if that doesn't work, he has plenty of other dark moves to back him up. Plus he can take a good hit or two before and delivering even strong ones going down.
Super cool lookingV26 Comments
One of the most awesome Pokemon and definitely one of my favourites! Its ability to create realistic illusions is off the charts! This Pokemon should certainly be in the top ten peoples so get voting!
Zoroark is really powerful and rare! I'm surprised that he is not a legendary, he needs to be one! I love his ability to change forms!
If you put a gengar at the back of your team and a Zoroark at the front, people will confuse it and try using psychic and dark attacks on what they believe to be a ghost type Pokemon, which gives you a perfect opportunity to do whatever you want with it. It isn't a legendary so people can't complain about it on battle spot and it's the only Pokemon (besides Zorua) who can learn Night Daze, which is the STRONGEST special dark type attack.
Zoroark is on of the best pokemon on my team in black &white 2V62 Comments
Crawdaunt is a total beast! He has so many resistances and even an immunity to psychic! He's totally worth adding to a team!
That Pokemon is a beast and to prove it he swept the entire elite four in my white 2
Let me just say this. Crawdaunt is like a bulldozer. He can easily break walls and can easily clean up. I don't even want to mention what will happen if an adaptability crawdaunt uses crabhammer on a Pokemon (hint hint, instant carnage). Enough said
Love the combo of water and dark. So unusual.V8 Comments
It is amazing and that's that I mean you only have to look out for fighting types and bugs so all you do is get it to know aerial ace and that's it for all of the fighting and bug types, that is why it should be number one. It's a BOSS!
With its combined, Unmatched speed and beastly attack, it is a force to be reckoned with. It's the only physical ice type Pokemon, which makes it unique!
Weavile is the best in my oppinion it's a sweeper if this things taught ice punch, (get a smeargle teach it ice punch leave it at the day care with a weavile/sneasle. )and also teach it shadow claw, brick break, and dig. This thing is amazing recomended 100%!
And also weavile is very unique it has very high attack and speed rate. Being able to reach a maximum 372 attack stat and a 383 speed stat makes weavile even better. Not to mention in can also have a max of 344 hp, pretty good! Oh and one last thing like at a shiny weavile and tell me that's not cool. That's why I think weavile is the best dark type. I hope this helps.
P. S go to serebii.net really good for getting info on pokemon.
Get this thing ice punch and it kills every thingV20 Comments
Max his speed and attack, give him a Choice Scarf paired with Moxie, and he wrecks. He may be a bit of a glass cannon, but he's fast and hits like a truck. Great physical sweeper and an awesome design. My favorite Dark and one of my favorite Ground types.
With Earthquake and Crunch at STAB and stone edge plus dragon claw, you already have the makings of a good Pokemon. Add excellent ATK and SPD, decent defensive stats, and the ability Moxie, and you have Krookodile, the greatest Dark type available. He defiantly deserves a higher spot on this list.
Never forget Fire Fang and Aerial Ace, they cover Bug, Ice, Grass, and Fighting. Your only weaknesses now are Water and *retches* Fairy...
Beat reshiram and kyurem that's all I can sayV17 Comments
This thing has one of the best sprites of all time, can learn Iron Head, Night Slash, Sucker Punch and way more to crush enemies. Just watch out for fighting types.
Bisharp is just a complete beast, this thing is even super effective against dragon type moves thanks to its dark/steel typing. Should be numeral uno by far
Bisharp is so awesome. Guillotine can deal with tough opponents while iron head gets them to flinch. This knight can pack a punch.
The coolest pokemon everV12 Comments
Honchkrow is the boss! One of the best dark types, with it's great attack and the ability moxie ( or super luck if you can't get moxie) it can murder it's way through any team with brave bird or super power, also because it does not have loads of speed you could have a move like tailwind to raise it's and your teams speed.
Honchkrow has an awesome attack stat and with fly it swamped Cynthia's spiritomb being10 levels under it. Not to mention it looking awesome and being an awesome combo of dark and flying. An great sweeper
With 505 base stat and over 100 for special attack and attack, this guy can easily be put into any group and turn it into a competitive online group. It gives you the best of flying and dark, not to mention it can learn ghost type moves, making it an awesome Pokemon. This guy was my first level 100, my first to take the elite 4 on its own, and my first to one hit ko an Arceus. Don't tell me that honchcrow isn't an awesome pimping Pokemon killing machine... Trust me I will be laughing at your Pokemon's funerals. HONCHCROW FOR THE WIN!
He looks cool, good stats, and he is a bird that controls other birds? He gets my vote.V15 Comments
I have always wanted to catch a Poochyena and train it into a Mightyena. Now I know that I can. MIGHTYENA ROCKS! She is really strong and I suggest that you get if you had a Sapphire or Ruby game. She is my favorite Pokemon and she is one of the strongest dark type and I think she should be number 2.
I think myghtyena is one of the top dogs another full dark type - SoulSilver
Because who doesn't want a wolf that "ONLY" obeys strong trainer's and can even learn fire fang, ice fang and thunder fang! (If you play OR/AS and you get the hidden one! ) I even have a fire fang knowing Mightyena that's a girl (Also Mightyena has a 50% to be a Female or Male) Still, and Mightyena also look's (kinda) like an elf (from the movies "the hobbit" and "the lord of the ring's") (I highly suggest you watch it so you can see it my way! ) And I LOVE Mightyena (P.S. If Mightyena get's mega or another evolution that would ROCK! ) Tyranitar can (easily) get beaten up by water and grass (if Tyranitar is rock + dark)
Mightyena is pretty damn awesomeV18 Comments
Dude, this things speed is nothing to sneeze at. Ya move pool effectively takes care of weaknesses, and now with mega-evolution it has even more destructive, sweeping potential.
Just amazing best dark type ever look on Pokemon alpha sapphire you zoom of into the distance on this Pokemon and as for camerupt nothing.
One of my favorite Pokemon. The 2nd king of the seas. It's nothing to play around with when it has a deadly bite and attack stat like that!
Lol oras surfingV6 Comments
Greninja is incredible in competitive, my favourite is Umbreon but that's because I personally love it. Greninja on the other hand is basically what Game Freak intended Arceus to be. I think Arceus's Mega will have this ability or something similar. Even Chansey can't wall it because it learns knock off. Only extremely bulky Pokemon like Mega Aggron, Zapdos, Umbreon can stop it, otherwise you just have to revenge kill it with something faster. Greninja is truly a beast and very interesting to use.
Frog Ninja plus Protean = pure destruction. Grass type? Ice Beam, changes into Ice Type. Water Type? Grass Knot. Changes into Grass. Psychic Type? Dark Pulse. None stood a change to this Type Changing Ninja Frog with the awesome Tongue Scarf.
Greninja's ability to change type makes him basically four types in one.
Greninja is a beast he rollsV19 Comments
Why is THE Destruction Pokemon left out? First off he has a stat total of 680 and is almost unbeatable with his phantom force move! Second of all HE IS A LEGENDARY OF Pokemon Y just catching him makes you feel legendary! Plus he looks almost as epic as DARKRAI! (Almost, you can't beat the badass)
He is the stronger than darkrai. He is the destruction Pokemon he can destroy everyone of them
Spencer is awesome! (Yes I named my Yveltal after one of the users on this site.) - RiverClanRocks
Yes very goodV23 Comments
Ghost and dark that takes away the super effective fighting attacks like he's the bomb
This should be higher than this because I killed all 4 elite 4 members with this guy
Should definitely be higher up, only one weakness and immune to three types.
My favorite pokemon all the time since I'm playing emerald until nowV10 Comments
I don't consider generation 6 a thing. So in my mind there's still no weaknesses.
No super effective weakness, that should be enough to out Spiritomb somewhere in the top ten.
This thing is amazing
I love this little guy and he's based on Chinese lore with 108 souls trapped inside him
That is the definition of dark
It really needs an evolution though or a mega just to put him back into the spotlight
I hate fairy type. They mucked me upV7 Comments
A hard choice to make, but I have to go with Shiftry. I love the whole evolution line, and suddenly a dark pokemon! He looks very cool.
Even though shiftry is annoying and hard to find it is worth getting
He looks so cool! He shines out in a field of ugly bad dark Pokemon...
Why is torterra hereV9 Comments
It is creepy, it's a walking scarecrow, in battle it is not effected by sandstorms it can learn super cool moves and it was in the top ten creepiest Pokemon list so please vote for this one thanks
This thing is so creepy, and it's not bad.
Love this pokemon, always reliable.V4 Comments
