Top Ten Strongest Non Legendary Pokemon

cedar99

The Top TenXW

1Dragonite

I love dragonite because he has such a wide variety of moves for example: my level.88 dragonite knows outrage, flamethrower, thunder and fly. They also were extremely beast for being like the only dragon type in earlier games... WHY isn't THIS AT THE TOP!

Dragonite personally is my favorite beyond a doubt. He can basicly learn the majority of the moves let alone wipe out anyone. He may look peaceful. But his power is nothing to joke about

Dragonite is a beast, you can train it to be special attack heavy and have it learn thunder and hurricane (both 100 percent accuracy in rain) or do the regular sweeping dragonite that knows dragon dance and outrage, an thanks to dream world it has multiscale ability which makes moves only do half damage at full health, which can be maintained by using dragonites roost. Dragonite definitely deserves to be the best non-legendary Pokemon.

Dragonite does not deserve number 1

2Garchomp

First of all it has one of the best STAB combinations in the game. Add to that great attack and speed. Add on that it learns swords dance which doubles its attack. After just 2 swords dances it can destroy nearly the whole game.

This Pokemon can really kill. To make a garchomp killer, get a gible with an adamant or jolly nature. Adamant gives your garchomp a very high attack Stat, while jolly gives it a very high speed Stat. My Garchomp has a sassy nature, but I am planning to give it a muscle band.

Hope you enjoy this Epic Pokemon.

cool looking very strong knows some of the best moves

Great stats and awesome mega

3CharizardCharizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Charizard is awesome as it learns the move flare blitz on lv66 with the power of 120. It is difficult to defeat misty with charizard's pre-evolution charmeleon but if it learns mega punch you can defeat her

It is not like flare blitz is the best move in the game, lol. Have fun flare blitz with that terrible 84 while you could just use something like darmanitan with 140 attack, lol. And charizard is running out of moves and run mega punch - Woyaojinkela

Charizard Could Get Through All Gyms and is powerful on its stats(:

While Pokemon that has higher every single stats than charizard exists. - Woyaojinkela

It's easy to raise and can learn a withe variety of moves, fire type, flying type, some fighting type moves such as brick break, and dragon type. In my fire red game he hasn't fainted once and is already level 57 and I have only beat 4 gyms. He has pretty much been unstoppable. He learns moves that cover his weaknesses

Lol, you have to get it that high level to beat 4 gyms. Covers its weakness doesn't make a Pokemon unstoppable, one brick break isn't going to kill much rock type, thunder punch would only scratch some water types, dragon type moves only hits dragon which beats charizard. - Woyaojinkela

I finished Fire red and won most of the matches with charizard

4Tyranitar

One of my favorite Pokemon. He is very reliable in battle and has great attack. It may take a while to evolve from a Larvitar, but it is definitely worth the wait.

I agree to this Well written.
Tyranitar is my favorite pseudo-legendary pokemon. Its attack power is over the roof.

Incredible Pokemon next to impossible to defeat even with a water type. The only Pokemon that can be acknowledged as its equal is dragonite

Laugh out loud. Get dragged away in stupidity with dragonite; he was made for this pun

His mega is amazing and a dark rock type can defend against fairy (learn steel/poison type moves) and has the mega ability of sandstorm.

5Salamence

Really good because it can viably use both physical and special attacks, add on great speed and not bad defensive stats and a great move pool adds up to a terrifying beast.

It is one of the strongest Pokemon it can learn fly, flamethrower, hydro pump and dragon type moves

He can beat ko pokemon with just one hit he's a beast pokemon and his details are grand

He's good better then number 5

6Hydreigon

Hydreigon is a great Pokemon, if you have trained it well and know how to use it. He may be hard to train, but if you are a real trainer take the challenge. It WILL be worth it. I hope...

My Hydreigon is beast. It knows:
Draco Meteor
Outrage
Fire Blast
Hyper Voice
It took out Benga by itself, and its so good I decided to keep it in my all dragon type team, it was entered insted of Kyurem. All who laugh at it will have to listen to crying at their pokemons funeral.

Hydreigon is the easy one of the best pokemon in the game!
It can be either a secial attack sweeper or a normal attack sweeper, I myself have one of each and they completly blitz the competition

So op that it could be level 90 and beat almost any non fairy type Pokemon level 100

7LucarioLucario 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 ...read more.

I AM THE SAME GUY WHO COMPLAINED ABOUT LUCARIO BEING THE 27 BEST Pokemon INCLUDING THE LEGENDARIES. I am happy he is at least ranked number 12 now but like I said he should by at least number the top 5 on the list. I loved lucario and used him on pearl, diamond and platinum and he rocked. I loved lucario for 8 years.

Lucario is a AWEESSOOME sweeper he even beat a blissey with one close combat on my pokemon black and blissey has higher HP than any pokemon so there the only ones who can put a good match against it might be garchomp but its part steel so it's only really weak to fire and it has some awesome moves recommended moves are:
Bullet punch
Close combat
Aura sphere
Extreme speed
Not to mention it has aura sphere which has 90 power and it never misses and lastly it can understand human speech how beast is that.

Aura sphere has only 90 power? My lucario one hit everything with it. - ThunderdrumsRule

Lucario has to be in the top ten at least. It has an awesome move pool, decent typing, and really good stats with an overall of 525. Not to mention the amount of resistances it has with 6 x2 resistances and 3 x4 resistances. This pokemon makes an excellent sweeper on competition teams and an overall beast for almost everything else. Highly recommended.

Strongest Fighting type in my opinion, along with wicked speed and crazy attack stats. Make sure to evolve it from Riolu.

8Metagross

It is overall the best psudeo-legend not hurt by dragon attacks unlike all the other psudeo legends with killer attak and good defense. He is a badass and he has a great moveset. Ph the the true top seven no legends are really statwise and move wise are dragonite salamance metagross slaking tyrantiar garchomp hydreigon

My plain rayquaza beat a mega evolved metagross one hit with overheat - ThunderdrumsRule

Best Pokemon I have ever used. Who doesn't want a psychic steel Pokemon! Barely anything is super effective over it

Metagross rules. I caught a Metang with a master ball, and I have not regretted it one bit. Quickly Metagross became a beast, and I used in about 99% of my battles. Seriously, I recommend it. I tested a bit to se who was better, metagross or excadrill, and metagross won by a landslide. Two words:
GET METAGROSS!

It has strong defense and lots of attack

9Gyarados

Brilliant pokemon, must always have one in my team!

I love this guy he won me Pokemon Pearl with Dragon Dance, Waterfall and Bite. And two Bites KOed Cynthia's Roserade. Not to mention it was Level 55 when I won.

Awesome pokemon and very strong even against higher levels than itself

My second favourite Pokemon

10Gengar

My favourite Pokemon along with charizard and rayquaza. I Beat the Elite four with only gengar and charizard, it should be way higher.

Gengar is a really strong ghost type. It's special ability levitate makes it can't get hit by ground type Pokemon. The only weakness is dark. Also gengar can learn a large variety of moves. It can learn thunder, fire, ice, and shadow punch. This moves and reasons make gengar one of the best Pokemon to use!

Gengar is my favorite pokemon ever. He's so awesome. Its truly a great sight to have a lv 75 gengar use psychic and rape all the opposite pokemon. Really, its only weakness is dark and flying. Go gengar!

Gengar isn't weak to flying. He is weak to ghost, psychic and dark.

I love his goofy grin!

The Newcomers

?Meloetta

Meloetta is one of the most underrated competitive battlers in my opinion. Relic Song with Serene Grace is 2 good.

It should be high it can go in attack mode such a special Pokemon

?Rayquaza

Rayquaza is a beast in ORAS. Very strong and reliable, but some other dragons can be better.

The Contenders

11BlazikenBlaziken, known in Japan as Bashāmo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This is possibly the best Pokemon of all time. All you need to do is get to the fifth gym in hoenn and beat the fire gym leader to get overheat which makes Blaziken almost overpowered.

This Pokemon's very strong he's my favorite on of the all! It has this fierce look and good power!

Umm... nobody is thinking properly. As much as I would love to vote for Dragonite, my favorite Pokemon, Blaziken, whether mega or not, is in the Ubers tier for a reason. His hidden ability, Speed Boost, plus his insane attack, plus a solid swords dance, then protect, substitute, and baton pass. You see it all the time in competitive play. And, even though its less useful without the baton pass set, one swords dance can pretty much set him up to destroy anything in his path. On the note of the story line, the only problem with him and his line is the first gym, because at that point he probably isn't stupidly op. However, if you get him to evolve before the first gym, which isn't as hard as it may sound, you can destroy everything with a simple double kick. Thank you, goodbye.

Blaziken is my hero

12Arcanine

I beat the elite four using basically only my Arcanine, and also most of the gyms with it (after I'd got it of course).

This is a true fact. Arcanine was intended to be a legendary pokemon. He was going to be along side zapdos and articuno but they later figured it would be smarter to have 3 birds so they added moltres and instead make arcanine one of the strongest non legendaries of all time. He should definitely be a top 5.

Arcanine is a boss! He has all around high stats, because he was originally meant to be legendary. Also he can learn great moves, and if his ability is intimidate, he can destroy

BOO ARcanine Blaziken rocks

13Alakazam

If it weren't for Mew or Mewtwo, this guy would have been the original badass psychic Pokemon. The only thing holding this Pokemon back is the existence of the legendary.

Best Pokemon period. It's all attack and speed. It hits fast and hard and is the master of the 1 hit ko.

Alakazam's special attack is out of this world

Literally the GOAT

V39 Comments
14Haxorus

Best pokemon ever. It can take out any steel type pokemon in one hit even though its weaker against them. It has lots of speed so it always goes first. I can defeat any full party with my haxorus for sure.

Haxorus is awesome because he learns giga impact, sword dance, earthquake, hyper beam, and the best dragon type Pokemon move to me outrage and I had him when I was facing the elite four and he was the only Pokemon I used he's awesome

Amazing attack and just a great sweeper over all... one of my all time favorites!

Yeah its great one of my favourite but I think it should b replaced by swampert

15Volcarona

Hey, Volcarona is more of a legendary pokemon than most legendaries; it appears to you in the game when you reach about 70 or 60, it is pretty the most powerful since it has, after all, replaced the sun according to the legend.

Also, its moves and its stats are incredible; I'm pretty sure it's suppose to be legendary then the poke company decided not to make it a legendary just because they had too many in fifth region.

VOLCARONA DESERVES TO BE IN THE TOP TEN. Unfortunately it is a generation five Pokemon and not many people know about it.

Volcarona is a bug fire Pokemon which makes it one of the most formidable Pokemon even against the strongest of legendaries. It's capable of some of the strongest attacks in the pokedex, such as hurricane, hyper beam, giga impact, overheat, solar beam, flare blitz, bug buzz and even wild bolt and psychic. This Pokemon is truly an asset.

Has an overall base stats of 550, has incredible sp. Att and sp. Definitely along with speed makes this Pokemon a heavy hitter. It is super effective against 5 different types out of 17; that is twice the amount of most Pokemon. Its only real weakness is rock type Pokemon. With the moves bug buzz, heat wave, sunny day and solarbeam you can wipe out almost anything with just this Pokemon. Although it evolves at 59, it is well worth its wait, and easily makes it into my top 5 for non legendary Pokemon.

16Greninja

Greninja must deserve to be in the TOP TEN because they are very fast and very good at dodging attacks except if it is in the air and my greninja defeated a volcarona a lot of times without even a defeat it could easily defeat fire types which volcarona is so with these facts greninja should be in the TOP TEN!

My Greninja level 100 destroys anything water dark you don't get better than that and he's a ninja should be much higher on the list

It is really fast and can learn ice beam only problem is it can't learn a dark move until level 70

Greninja is the best

17Typhlosion

First of all typhlosion is the ultimate bro. And the ultimate fire types as well learns almost all fire type moves plus most other badass moves as well. To have the ability to heat up his entire body to temperatures that melt steel then explode a whole team of Pokemon all while stayin sexy! It don't get any better than that!

Typhlosion is my most favorited pokemon becuz it can learned many great attacks such as thunder punch- to take out water pokemon
focus blast to take out rock and for ground... an easy heat wave should beat it straight out of its dig attack xD

Well, here we are again. Your typical Pokemon list, with Charizard stealing the spotlight. Nothing new here. Okay, Typhlosion is WAY better than Charizard. I honestly don't see how, or why they have the same stats. Forget about Charizard, he's overrated. Don't belive me? Look at the top ten most overrated Pokemon. The review that says I creamed Red's Charizard with my Typhlosion, is mine. Anyways, Typhlosion is awesome! He has great speed, amazing moves, and he's WAY better than that Charizard crap. I highly recommend this Pokemon. Trust me you won't be disappointed.

Typhlosion is literally a beast.

18Blastoise

Blastoise first off is a water Pokemon who can Learn ice moves earth moves some air and normal moves and much more. This gives him an advantage over a ton on Pokemon especially CHARZARD which shouldn't be on the top ten blastoise should be at 1. Blastoise also has a ton of defense which can handle CHARZARDS fire breath and what ever else you think is effective plus he has a ton of power. That's not even half of why blastoise she be 1 SCREW CHARZARD GO BLASTOISE!

I just LOVE blastoise. It was hard deciding between this blue turtle and the awesome fire breathing dragon charizard, but I decided that blastoise is better. For one thing, it is BULKY. Second, it can learn a ton of moves. It may be a bit slow (duh, it's a turtle), but with it's great defense and strength, it really doesn't matter. Also, it can learn ice beam too, and if you raise this monster to a high enough level, it's going to turn into the dragon demolisher.

He should be in the top 10. He is a total boss. He is the best Pokemon ever. - doublebattlebros

Charizard is WAY better than crappy blastoise

19Flygon

I only want a flying type in my team so I can use fly. This guy is a ground dragon AND CAN USE FLY. Plus he levitates, he pretty much is a flying type Pokemon to me so the only three type one EVER.

He is a beast physical sweeper and has great typing and ability. Just a bit frail when taking hits like ice beam and practically any dragon type move.

I love Flygon! It can learn Fly, also has the ability Levitate, except it's a duel Dragon/Ground type, which also adds an immunity to electric type. It's a great Pokemon to have on a Sand (Sandstorm) Team. My only problems with it are lack of mega evo and it takes a long time to train. Other than that, I love it! It should be higher than 17!

Flygon is amazing. Should've been a pseudo legendary, but his power can make up for it. Combine that with an awesome ability (levitate) and Flygon is great to use.

20Mega Blaziken

Mega blaziken can't have blaze idiot

Mega Blaziken should be number 1 his ability is boss he gains speed every move and I would like to add that Blaziken is one of the top Pokemon in speed and much better than a dragonite.

Sceptile can beat it because sceptile becomes part dragon and Blaziken gets some lame ass ability that a normal blaziken can get if you get one with it's special ability. Being speed boost. Lame

First of, mega blaziken is the best starter Pokemon and with speed boost it is a very good sweeper
