The Top Ten

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!
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!
Absol is awesome. It has very high attack. I had one in Pokemon Omega Ruby, Pokemon Y, and Pokemon Emerald, it's really cool. It has a great ability called Super Luck, which makes the critical Hit rate higher. Teach it Night slash, and it becomes higher! Also, if you teach it psycho cut, it also gives it a high critical Hit rate and it deals with its weakness to fighting types. Let it hold the scope lens, which increases its critical Hit rate even MORE. It's a real threat!
[Newest]The Critical Hits are real

Come on people?! Tyranitar crushes anything and everything!
Epic love this pokemon defeat anything in its path
Come on! This thing is BEAST and is(in my opinion) is the BEST pokemon that is not legenday! SO Yeah
[Newest]Come on give this dude some credit. It smashes anything in it's path, even Absol. Tyranitar has 600 base stats, higher than MEGA Absol's base stat

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.


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!
[Newest]I like this Pokemon because of its awesome defenses and attacks

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
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 :).


darkrai really is the best
mine has: dark pulse, dark void, dream eater, nightmare
i ruled whole battle revolution with him!
[Newest]Darkrai is the legendary dark Pokemon which can win from cresselia the legendary fairy type. darkrai even won from dialga and palkia 2 of the most strongest Pokemon

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!
Zoroark has had it's own movie can shape shift into different pokemon like mew, and even rivals darkria in stats how could he not be in the top ten, just look at him he's a dark werewolf!
[Newest]Zoroark can use illusions which can confuse the opponent and it can even transform into legendary and normal Pokemon.

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
I beat the champion with only my level 84 hydreigon
[Newest]Ha! I beat iris with a level 60 hydreigon.

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.
this may be a dark/fire type but it still has one nasty bite


LOVE BOTH umbreon and houndoom LOTS but houndooms lower in rating!
[Newest]He can smash a Pokemon in moves!

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
Crawdaunt is just plain beast. He can learn Crabhammer, and he is also a water type Pokemon. I think he should be higher up in the rankings. Darkrai should still be first though.
[Newest]Love the combo of water and dark. So unusual.

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. Its a BOSS!
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 really good for getting info on pokemon.
With its combined, Unmatched speed and beastly attack, it is a force to be reckoned with. Its the only physical ice type pokemon, which makes it unique!
[Newest]Weavile is so sassy any devious

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.
He's an awesome beast! My favourite attack combination is Swagger and foul play, combine them and make Swag Play. Swagger increases your opponents attack but makes them confused and foul plays power increases the higher the opponents attack is making it so stron!
An interesting type combination; Krookodile is definitely my best Pokemon in my copy of Pokemon Black. She has an amazing attack and speed and makes a devestating opponent.
[Newest]With all of its strong moves it can learn its truly a best

The Contenders

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!
[Newest]Why is it low it should be higher it's defense sucks but it's attack is 125 base :0 tAke that weavile!

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.
Loved the blade man. As long as you avoid fighting types, this guys unstoppable.
[Newest]I love the blades of doom!

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


You can't beat a Whole pack.
[Newest]Mightyena is useless in elite 4.

A shark that destroys everything in its path
Forget Sharknado, they should make a movie called Sharpedo. There I said it.
Stop on that lousy Sharknado, when we could be watching sharpedo. There, I set it

How do you not like him, he's faster than alakazam, it has one of the best shinies ever, and it is INSANE for battles, if you don't know what it has and it has protean, and you thing, "well oh, I think I will just go for a super effective move when he is not protean. (Close combat) greninja used extra sensory (______ held on its focus sash, ) _______ used close combat it's not effective" it is also great with spattack and attack -spattack ice beam dark pulse (water move like surf or scald etc etc. ) and extra sensory- -attacking rock slide, you turn, waterfall, and Something else I forgot name of. But it's protean is getting people of guard.
So Mich better than all Pokemon above him
Frog Ninja

That is all

Scrafty deserves more than this. He can tale so many hits and deal out tons of damage. His typing is really cool too, he doesn't have many weaknesses
Are you serious?! I can't believe no one added this yet. Scrafty is amazing!
Come on. Scrafty+Crunch=OP! This should be in top 10!

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
The guy rocks he looks cool and he should be in top 1 or 2 (darkrai should be 1)

No super effective weakness, that should be enough to out Spiritomb somewhere in the top ten.
You have to be kidding me a pokemon with no weakness ghost dark my keldeo level 50 beat him at level 65
But then came the fairy type

Ghost and dark that takes away the super effective fighting attacks like he's the bomb
Should definitely be higher up, only one weakness and immune to three types.
So cool! Not only is he a great fight, but what an awesome design to top it off!

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
As of Generation V, no other Pokémon have same dual Egg Group as Cacturne and its pre-evolution. In this case, Grass and Human-Like, are unique.
It's Awesome! Plus it gets a million benifits from sandstorm.

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...

Looks like a sexy boss and never lets weak Pokemon get bullied!
Finally! A cool dark/fighting panda! He looks totally badass!

23Mega Absol
It must be number 1 it is the mega evo of absol for cryin' out loud!
It's Second best out of all of them... Absol being the best
Looks like a fanmade thing. Herr derr lets take absol and give it with and a gey hair.

I let my friend borrow my Sapphire game and she caught a Poochyena and she leveled it up into a Mightyena, and I've seen her play with her Poochyena and she is awesome she defeated the first gym with it. I think she said she is trying to get all Poochyena's besides her starter. Pretty cool right!?
Poochyena is the best pokemon and not to mention cute! POOCHYENA ROCKS YOO!

Dark and poison. It only has one weakness which is to ground and that can be taken care of with ice fang
It looks kinda cool but I dislike his arms on his head, move them a little down and he'll be epic.
Drapion is a pure beast! It should be way higher up on this list!

Malamud has a beast typing, I think enough is said
Malmars ability contray is really good reverting any stat changes example superpower makes you loose attack and defense by 1 stage but if you got contray it does the oposite it also has a move called topsy turvey wich can srew over calmind and sworddance users




30Arceus Dark Type
You shouldn't include Arceus in any other type than normal
Dudes he is the number 1 Pokemon he is so much better than tyranitar he is the creator of Pokemon stupids

Should be #1 because she rules!

Looks like Robin Hood. It's the only Pokemon with nipples

I just love Stuntank, with his great speed, HP, move pool and typing. Why can't you get him in Platinum?!

I love Murkrow! I must've gotten 51000 cards of him. Even though it is "feared and loathed by many", who cares? Murkrow really is good if he rests on your shoulder.
Darkrai could beat this with DARK VOID!
With its evolution with 505 base stat and awesome ghost dark flying and even fire moves, this guy is a boss. Literally it's evolution means boss crow. He was my first lvl100 and I didn't regret it. HONCHCROW FAMILY FOR THE WIN IN DARK TYPES! Not to mention mine one hit ko'd an arceus with fly. Like a BOSS, LITERALLY


Great way to piss people off. Use thunder wave, foul play, swagger and substitute and you can get almost anyone.
Underrated. Super cool, agile and with the right training, can become one you top partners.
