Top 10 Best Non-Legendary Johto Pokemon

This is my opinion at first, feel free to vote for any Pokemon you like.

The Top TenXW


Tyranitar is like a one man wrecking machine. With the right moves, it can destroy everything in its path and be the best non legendary poke on your team

He can defeat any Pokemon that comes his way

The reason I didn't put him number 1, is because he evolves late in the game and Larvitar literally takes an hour to find. Fantastic attack, decent defense, but bad speed. - BlazikenBro

Vary good it also have a mega evolution

Feraligatr can destroy everything it touches. Like Heat/Freeze Miser but it's actually COOL. Obviously the best starter if the three, freezing grass and putting out fire. Teach it Surf for fire ground and rock, Super Power for Metal, Ice, and Dark, Ice Beam for Flying, Ground again, rock again, and Dragon, and teach it Earthquake for electric types. enough Said

From my experience, Feraligatr is probably one of the best fast physical sweepers you can get next to Pokemon like Crobat, and Garchomp. This Pokemon not only has BEASTLY stats, but it also has a vast movepool, which allows it to easily wipe through every Pokemon type. If you give this Pokemon a Life-Orb, nothing will be able to stand in its way. Simply put, Feraligatr is a badass Alligator, that can Ice-Punch and Earthquake it's way through anything. I would highly recommend it as a starter.

I had this Pokemon since the very beginning of my journey in SoulSilver, and let me tell you, it's just an amazing Pokemon! It has all these moves that it can learn to protect itself from electric types (for example it can learn earthquake) and grass types (for example it can learn ice beam or ice punch). When I brought my Feraligatr from SS to B2 and went to Black City, I never lost a single battle with it! Now I have a Shiny Gible all thanks to my awesome Feraligatr! (And also my Entei helped a little) You're the best!

BEST I chose him in ss

Not an easy one to evolve and weak when caught, but a solid choice. High stats, insanely fast and will leave your opponent confused (literally) - BlazikenBro

Crobat, in my opinion, beats them all. Amazingly fast speed, good design, nice moves.. It has a lot going for it-- terribly underrated.

All you need to get this thing is a poke ball, a cave, and love. Now look at it it is a total beast.

I don't like crobat because it doesn't have dragon rage

Typhlosion is a pretty solid 'mon for the mattress-soiling lout he is. Terrible defense, but good Special Attack. His design is decently nifty, to an extent-- at least he doesn't look like the Olsen twins.

Typhlosion can learn a great deal of moves. It also has a major type advantage against the other gyms.

Typhlosion is a beast. Great moves. Great stats. It should be number 1.

Best pull out game

5AmpharosAmpharos "the light Pokemon": an electric type which evolves from Flaaffy starting at level 30, it is the final evolution of Mareep . Ampharos also has a mega evolution which is dual dragon/electric type .

So what if it's slow? Thunder kicks major butt and Cotton Guard makes it rule out in Defense. - BlazikenBro

Low Speed and Defense, but you can spam stuff like Calcium to higher them

Aside from having a mega and looking cool, ampharos is a very powerful electric type, probably the best you can obtain with only the Kanto and Johto games. Awesome move pool and great defense.

Powerful and a cute dragon

He is incredibly strong, especially against Psychic and Fighting types because of its move Psychic.

A real tank, can't hit nearly as hard as Espeon but teaching it Curse and Payback will make your opponent wish they ever got out of bed. :D - BlazikenBro

My favorite Eeveelution. It's shiny form looks majestic like Gigalith's. Espeon makes me sick.

Umbreon is boss, killed a level 200+ Dragonite with my level 102 or something Umbreon

I love Psychic types and it is a real powerhouse, plus it has a variety of attacks.

Easily the best Eeveeloution to ever exist. Spectacular special attack, a wide variety of moves and the support factor makes this thing viable for any team - BlazikenBro

An easy Eeveelution to obtain, which is not a good thing for your opponents!

The only downside to scizor is that you need to trade it to evolve, and fire will destroy it. However, its speed is not to be taken lightly, and its move pool is amazing. Plus its design is just awesome and it has a mega!

Scizor is still awesome though!

Is really strong when it learns hyper

Such a powerful sweeper

V4 Comments

Water/Dragon is a great combo because of Dragon and Fairy only being effected against it. Plus it knows Flash Cannon to prevent Fairy types and things like Hydro Pump, Hyper Beam, Dragon Pulse, Giga Impact and Draco Meteor which takes care of the Dragon problem easily.

My friend literally beat the ENTIRE Elite Four with just one Kingdra. Seriously powerful, balanced stats, not to be taken as a joke. - BlazikenBro

Kingdra really is good, especially with its typing of water/dragon. It makes it really hard to get the type advantage over it, and dragon pokémon are also harder to find, so if you're fighting one a lot of the time you just have to power through.


It can use Mega Horn, with stab! It can easily battle psychic types with it and with practicals no other good Pokemon to fight psychic types at the time ( The dark type was new, so the only good dark Pokemon was Umbreon ) I'm surprised it's not higher.

Heracross is amazing. It's fighting/bug typing enables it to have a larger move pool, as well as a wider range of types that it can wreck, and even though it makes it weaker to types such as psychic, the powerful moves it learns totally makes up for that.

So close to hitting like Scizor! The big upside is though you can obtain it earlier than Scizor. Also able to learn Close Combat, Megahorn, Reversal, Aerial Ace, Stone Edge, Brick Break and other whopping moves - BlazikenBro

Gyarados should be top ten everything about is great. it can learn flamethrower, ice beam, thunderbolt, and hydro pump. and his stats are amazing if you raise it right you could have all its stats over 200 and his attack power over 365. my gyarados has an attack power of 367. this Pokemon is truly amazing.

Very high base stats and a nice movepool make Arcanine one of the best choices for a Fire type Pokemon in Jotho.

Lanturn with volt absorb is better than ampharos. That's it

It is literally the cutest thing ever


110 speed and 130 sp. Att. And the amazing hypnosis/dream eater combo. Only downside is you need to trade to evolve

Quagsire is a beast! It's typing makes it immune to electric types, and it has a large movepool. I just can't go without catching one whenever I play crystal. It's only downfall is that it can't learn Waterfall, but it can learn surf and whirlpool. So just teach it Surf, Slam, Whirlpool, and Earthquake and you've got a beast on your hands.

He's awesome because he is ground water type

To the one who thinks Houndoom is fire/steel, it's fire/dark you idiot

Fire/Steel... Literally a Fire type can wreck that easily.

Mega houndoom is mad - ShakilJamani15
