The Top Ten

1
Arceus
Can change its type and it is a god and the creator of pokemon
It's justified to be the strongest of all pokemon because it created the rest of them. Also those shards are really helpful and kickass
Technically it didn't create all of them.. So that doesn't apply to the original 151 because mew created them... So.. Mewtwo could still be better... Just pointing that out
I don't believe that arceus is number 1. I thought arceus would be third or second. He is the strongest sayian in history
Without him no one can get destroyed. He has more than thousand forms.
[Newest]Apparently Arceus created every single Pokemon in the Pokemon universe, but I still don't think it sounds right, I don't know why...

2Mewtwo
This is the only pokemon that was created by man to become the most strongest pokemon no other pokemon than mew will stand against mewtwo
I disagree Deoxys can definitely stand up to Mewtwo since it takes three forms (speed, attack, defense) so Mewtwo does not take the title of the strongest Pokemon
Mewtwo is the best
Mewtwo is number one always. He has awesome stats. He can learn basically any move. When I go up against the elite four I can use him and only him I do not have to use any potion either because all of hits hits are ko's
Come on people who puts charizard before mewtwo he should be first this is the strongest pokemon not which one you like best, as for arceus he is over rated that's all mewtwo is king
Mew two is stronger than Arceus as well as Mew and is the Strongest Pokemon in the world
[Newest]The king of Pokemon other than arceus..

3Rayquaza
it has a strong hyper beam and can take down both kyogre and groudon
Rayquaza can be defeated by both arceus (ice type) and articuno since they two are ice type.

kormo

Rayquaza is strongest Pokemon ever it took out my darkai level 100 when is was level 50 and on full health so vote for this good Pokemon. Come on it is so good it barley ever loses to other Pokemon it has never lost to any Pokemon apart from my lugia
This is the best pokemon ever, why isn't it on the too 10! Hyper beam could take out anyone! It is realty cool! It is even a super smash brawl boss! Why, why, why isn't it number one! It could knock out either one of dialga or palkia!
No, dialga could knock out rayquaza because its also a steel type, which is resistant to normal, dragon, and flying
[Newest]Good but not the best as charizard

4Mew
It can learn every move and can transform into any pokemon! Plus it's cute and playful! Best Pokemon EVER!

sharkfin1997

This pokemon is the one that defeated mewtwo
Mew is the original " most powerful" Pokemon. Everyone wanted mew. Mewtwo should be second after mew due to the fact that if mew didn't exist neither would he. I'm just saying. Mew for the win! He can learn every attack and has decent stats. Mew was originally dubbed the most powerful of all Pokemon first. This is included in the first movie, and the games, the shows, and even in the card game. Mew should always have the number 1 spot.
Mew WAS in the original game before this "two week prior" Easter egg. Go to Cinnabar Island and read the notes in the science lab. They uncovered the fossil of the predecessor to all Pokemon and attempted to clone it. They dubbed the clone Mewtwo because it was a clone
[Newest]The original and the best

5Giratina
GIRATINA SHOULD AT LEAST BE PLACED SOMEWHERE BETWEEN NO.3 TO NO.6 BECAUSE IT'S ALMOST ABLE BEAT ANY KIND OF POKEMON ESPECIALLY IN ITS ORIGINAL FORM IT WOULD BE ABLE TO DEFEAT A WHOLE POKEMON LEAGUE ON ITS OWN BY TRAINING IT THE RIGHT WAY
Granting should be up the top! It's just as strong as Dialga and Palkia and in the Shaymin movie it was smashing Dialga!
By Giratina Giratina Orgin Form Is wich you can get with arcues in the Alpha Ruins Or Just Trade it to Pokemon Black and white
[Newest]First of all, I believe Giratina has a great design overall. It has two forms, along with its own little pocket dimension, giving it an interesting background. As one of the 5 first Pokemon, it has control over antimatter, albeit granted this role by Arceus. It also has resistances granted to it by its Dragon and Ghost types. Its signature move, Shadow Strike, allows it to strike right throw your Protect, Spiky Shield, King's Shield, or whatever other protection you have. This is what makes Giratina my favorite Pokemon.

6Dialga
Dialga with his adamant orb and roar of time it can beat any pokemon in one move, Dragon Type Dragon Type Move Adamant Orb already 2.0 damage and the move is already ridiculously strong with 150 power. Also without this move Flash Cannon, Aura Sphere, and Earth Power are more than enough to take down anything with Dialga's Insane special attack.
Dialga could destroy everything as arceus gave him time. He could stop time and wreck the world!
This one just rocks...!
Should be on top for its power and elegance
Awesomely cool...
What else do you want?
[Newest]3 words "roar of time"

7Kyurem
KYUREM IS AN INCREDIBLE DRAGON WITH ITS ICE CHARACTER AND BE ABLE TO FUSE WITH EITHER RESHIRAM OR ZEKROM IT WOULD BE ABLE TO RIVAL ARCEUS STRENGTH THAT ALMOST MADE ME WONDER IF ARCEUS AND KYUREM (THE ORIGINAL DRAGON) WOULD BE SIBLINGS THAT THERE WERE LIKE 2 POKEMON OR UP TO 5 BEFORE NOTHING EXISTED WAY BACK THEN NOTHINGS IMPOSSIBLE ITS FUNNY IF KYUREM HAD A BATTLE WITH ARCEUS AND LOST WHEN FELT LIKE IT LOST ITS PRIDE ANOTHER THING WHEN I TRAINED KYUREM IN ITS NORMAL FORM IT WAS DOING GOOD AFTER VERY HARD TRAINING ALMOST LIKE GIRATINA I SHARPENED THE SKILLS I'm LITTLE OF A PERFECTIONIST TRYING MAKE EVERYTHING LOOK GOOD I RAISED MY a lot AFTER A WHILE I TOOK MY KYUREM AND THE OTHERS TO CHALLENGE THE BLACK TOWER FOR ME I WAS EXCITED TO FACE IT SO I DID I WAS SAVING KYUREM FOR THE LAST BOSS TRAINER IT DID A BIT BATTLING IN THE LOWER AS LIKE BACKUP THE OTHERS WERE LIKE WIMPS COMPARED TO KYUREM HE HAD GOOD ENDURANCE AND THE SAME WITH EMBOAR AS FOR EMBOAR I ONCE DEFEATED IRIS THE CHAMPION WITH EASE WITH ONLY MY EMBOAR AND IT WAS MY FIRST TIME I GUESS MY PERFECTION THING PAID OFF AND THE SAME HAPPENED WHEN KYUREM WENT UP AGAINST IRIS POKEMON AND IRIS WERE SUPPOSED TO BE THE CHAMPION? WHAT A JOKE! WHEN I HEARD IRIS BECAME THE CHAMPION I WAS KINDA ANGRY AND OTHER THING GUESS WHY BECAUSE SHES SO YOUNG THERE WAS ONE TRAINER IN PARTICULAR I FAILED TO DEFEAT EVER THE ONLY THING I NEVER SUCCEEDED IN SALON MADIEN WAS THE ONLY I NEVER MANAGED TO DEFEAT I WAS KINDA SLOPPY I WAS OVERCONFIDENT DURING THAT TIME BUT THEN I PUSHED HARDER SO ANABEL WAS THE REASON I TRIED TO PERFECT EVERYTHING NOW I HAD ALMOST THE SAME THING OVER AGAIN THE POKEMON WORLD TOURNAMENT I didn't MANAGE TO WIN IT THE INTERNATIONAL PART SO I'm PUSHING HARDER BESIDES KYUREM DESERVES TO BE AT LIKE NUMBER 6 TO 10 AND THAT'S THAT.
Kyurem is super strong and is the Girantina of the Unova dragon trio! It can flash freeze everything around it and is the only Pokemon that truly scares me.

sharkfin1997

An ice type dragon, that can change into a fire or electric type, and destroy a train system. No wonder its called "The most powerful dragon. "
[Newest]Kyurem is the most powerful Pokemon

8Lugia
As seen in the pokemon movie the power of one, this pokemon can talk like meowth, cool right?! Its so powerful that he lies in the bottom of the ocean, one flap of its wings can cause a 40 day storm, one of its signature move is aeroblast, its just huffin air and blasting it!
how is lugia not in the top 10?! he is my favourite and definitely the strongest pokemon

decorulez97

HOW come its at Number 14? ITS AEROBLAST Could take out any Pokemon
[Newest]My god he is in the no 8 he should be at the first place

9Darkrai
This is the pokemon that stopped palkia and dialga
Darkrai is the number one Pokemon for me because he stoped the 2 strongest Pokemon from fighting and its very strong when you look at him in a Pokemon vcard version so he for me is my favourite and remember, darkrai is always nuber 1!
The Evil Super Dark Pokemon Is ALSO AWESOME!
[Newest]Darkrai is a good Pokemon

10Charizard
It's a simple pokemon but its strong. Its true that charizard isn't a rare pokemon. But its cool to know that this pokemon is great even its just a normal pokemon. Its power is really great with quite speed
Charizard should be Higher! It can mega evolve into two different mega evolutions! Only Mewtwo can also mega evolve into two different mega evolutions!
Fire and Flying he is also a Big Bad Dragon type with a Fighting Spirit Like the other Fire Starters
Are you mad charizard is the best it should be number 1 fire pokemon the best
Charizard isn't better than the Pokemon who created all Pokemon, including Charizard...

anythingispossible

[Newest]Charizard is always best. He is very powerful. And his coop seismic toss move is awesome

The Contenders

11Palkia
Palkia is totally awesome! It's like the first Pokemon in a movie to actually nearly destroy the whole main town plus it's the guardian of space which makes it EPIC!
Palkia's powerful move spacial rend can destroy a building, if not distracted by weak pokemon.
He should at least be third and dialga fourth because or both ranked fourth
because this is like palkia dialga and giratina are the first strongest trio and palkia is my most favorite pokemon.
[Newest]Palkia isn't the Pokemon of space so can't it be strong

12Zekrom
Zekrom has outstanding attack! Its moves fusion bolt and bolt strike can hurt a pokemon badly!
It's awesome! Because it van use Fusion bolt and other cool moves and zekrom should be 1 2 or 3 in unova so please have a good vote because he's my favorite pokemon
Zekrom is a black and white pokemon. And it is better than charizard in the pokemon pokedex list of pokemon with states pokemon data base.
[Newest]Zekrom does 40 damage do itself

13Deoxys
In the movie it smashed Rayquaza! It's signature move has 140 damage and can change forms! Strongest alien ever!
Strongest Alien, and its true He did smash rayquaza in the movie!
Plus he has a lot of moves that are really tough and effect very much
Deoxys in attack forme possesses the highest Attack and Special Attack the Pokemon Universe. Deoxys in defense form posesses the highest Defense and Special Defense in the Pokemon Universe. Deoxys in Speed Forme possesses the highest Speed in the Pokemon Universe. Even in Normal Forme it has blistering speed coupled with insane attack and Special Attack.
It has a huge movepool with access to the devastating Psycho Boost that destroys almost every Pokemon, and hit with unparalleled power with other insane moves with impeccable type coverage such as Ice Beam, Thunder, Thunderbolt, Dark Pulse, Shadow Ball, Superpower and Extremespeed. Has been shown to have incredible regenerative abilities, reflected in its ability to instantly recover off damage.
[Newest]High and special attack, as well as either the 2nd or 1st fastest Pokemon in the game depending on its form. Need strength? Look no further.

14Reshiram
In the legend Reshiram is equally as strong as Zekrom so why is it so much lower?
Reshiram should at least be next or close to Zekrom, maybe even higher because it has more special attack. It deserves a place in the top 10.
I have beat the elite 4 like 10 times with reshiram he only was he insta killed everyone just train him correctly and you will see what I mean
[Newest]Reshiram is stronger than Zekrom.


15Ho-Oh
This legendary pokemon is the first which ash saw as seen in pokemon, its believed that this pokemon only shows himself to kindhearted trainers
Best fire pokemon ever. Got him and he killed rock and water gyms. Should be 2 best. You
Ho-oh is good saw it when starting and good luck ever since
[Newest]Ho-oh made some legendary Pokemon and he is in top-15. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.

16Groudon
Groudon's weaknesses are water, ice and grass. Drought (Groudon's ability that makes the sun shine) lowers water's effectiveness and ups fire's (which is super effective against ice and grass). Kyogre's ability makes thunder have a 100% hit chance. Kyogre has nothing on Groudon.
I would put groudon in the same place as kyogre, but only because kyogre is super effective. Stat wise, Groudon kicks.
Groudon kicks mega butt he rocks he's number #1 better then all the other pokemon ahead of him.
[Newest]Ground on is the best Pokemon

17Dragonite
Do I have to explain;
Water, electric, fire and a flying dragon pokémon.

You don't have to catch them all, just Dragonite.

Bergur

a lone wolf? A kick-ass dragon that will own anything you put un front of it and then cuddle its trainer
Come on this Pokémon always kicks your ass till you can't fight no more. Face people aren't voting for it because they are just jealous of its incredible move coverage of almost every type.

Thunderbolt= fainted water and flying types
Flamethrower= fainted ice, grass, bug and steel types
Ice beam='fainted ground, grass flying and other dragon types

You just have to face it If it was in a ring with any legendary, especially Arceus, they would beg for mercy in the first minute.

DRAGONITE DRAGONITE DRAGONITE DRAGONITE!
[Newest]The best Pokemon ever. No 1can beat him... 😎😎😎

18Mega Mewtwo Y
It has the most highest base stat of all Pokemon
It has absurd statistics, and does everything Mewtwo does but 1,000 times better. Mega Mewtwo Y is superior to basically all Pokemon due to it's ridiculous Special attack along with it's absurd speed stat. I guess it would fall under Mewtwo's category, but if you're counting it as a separate Pokemon, Mega Mewtwo Y is number 1.
It was Pokemon killer of the world.
[Newest]It is the best

19Mega Mewtwo X
Look it up it has the best stats at 780 where arceus is at 720
Not to be a party pooper but how is Mewtwo ahead of its mega evolution :/
Retarded Pokemon in my opinion. He gets so chubby in his mega evolved form.

Even Know I have Mewtwoite X and a Mewtwo, Mewtwo Y evolved form is better.

Basically, Mega Mewtwo Y Is A Mew but it's a Mewtwo. Mewtwo made top 2 and his Mega Mewtwo X Is bad.

Mega Mewtwo Y Is Floating. His brother is Mew.

Mewtwo Y FOR THE WIN!
[Newest]780 base stat total. THAT IS INCREDIBLE! I'm not sure if mega evolutions count on this list, but this guy is more powerful than Arceus

20Magikarp
Strongest Pokemon. EVER. No one can own it with it's infinity damage Splash.
The only reason why Splash doesn't do any damage is because its power goes around twice on the HP bar so you don't notice the damage. In reality, any of your Pokemon that has battled a Magikarp has fainted at least once. You can tell they fainted because they hate you after every Magikarp battle.
All you have to do with this guy is - Splash

Splash can kill hoards of monsters in one hit. Splash BOOM BOOM BOOM

How can you not love this pokemon? BEST POKEMON EVER!
[Newest]This should be number 1
