Top Ten Legendary Pokemon

The top ten list of the Pokemon series' legendaries.

The Top Ten

1 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

Mewtwo can beat any pokemon. As explained in the first movie he can make a hurricane that can destroy the planet. He has a very high intelligence, hence he was able to rebuild the laboratory with no experience in that subject. He is able to block a pokemons special ability which would get rid of a few pokemon off the bat including a so called creator of the universe. He can control people's and pokemons mind. When he took over nurse joy for a few weeks. His speed is the second fastest of all the legendary pokemon meaning he would attack first from the majority. He can learn a vast array of moves which gives him great coverage. He is able to put a barrier around him that reflects all kinds of attacks if you look at the first movie. In the pokemon special he was able to transport a whole lake and a mountain with no difficulty. In the first movie he is able to wipe there minds from the memories thy had of him. And he was able to destroy a whole island and team rockets headquarters with ...more

The planet destroying hurricane you are talking about is a dub only haha. The original Japanese version Mewtwo only mentions destroying the islands there only.

He is a killer
Had his own Movie
Made Ash cry
Can't beat that

Everything makes Ash cry though... I don't disagree that Mewtwo is boss though

just watch the first movie and you'll end up loving this pokemon.

Mewtwo is the first pokemon created by man watch the first movie it even saved ash ketchum form a herd of gensects rekt.

2 Rayquaza Rayquaza Rayquaza is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It lives in the ozone layer, and frequently stops battles with Kyogre and Groudon, two other Legendaries.

It is the best pokemon which defeated even deoxix "all hail RAYQUAZA"

he's so cool he's like super strong too

Woot woot woot! He rocks he's my fave Pokemon apart from cobalion and reshivaun

It my favorite pokemon so way not

3 Lugia Lugia

On the Top 100 Strongest Pokemon he is ranked 3rd? Why, his wings are so powerful that if he were to flap them the wind would cause a 40 day storm and his Aeroblast can take out any pokemon that takes him on, and also he is my favorite legendary pokemon

Lugia is probably one of the best pokemon I have in Soulsilver and it beats Giratina in many ways, extrasensory a few times and before you notice Giratina has fainted even if it is levels higher like level 50 lugia and level 65 Giratina lugia would still own it.

He is strongest when use singing and his most powerful lazer beam will destroy every pokemon even arcues and mewtwo

Lugia can even beat Zapdos, Articuno, and Moltres all fighting together!

4 Giratina Giratina Giratina is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Giratina first appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, but gained prominence in the sister game, Pokémon Platinum, which it was made the mascot of.

Its funny cause when I got diamond all ma buds were like dude pearl better. So when I got Dialga, they stood no chance CAUSE DIAMONDS EPIC but when I found Giratina, beat all my buds in one go. That's why Giratina is ownAGE, ownAGE AND MORE ownAGE

best ghost their is
some may argue that he might even beat rayquaza out for top dragon

DOES ANYONE WANT TO TELL ME WHY THIS POKEMON ISN'T ON TOP IT IS THE ONLY GHOST DRAGON TYPE AND WHO CARES ABOUT STUPID ARCEUS SO WHAT HE MADE THE WORLD THAT DOESN'T MAKE HIM THE BEST OUT THERE HE'S A PUNK

Gyrating is cool awesome moves and I don't his stats but he's the best DRAGON type mewtwo socks and so do other day garden is cool a too

5 Dialga Dialga

Dialga is unstoppable with roar of time what is he doing at number 8 he should at least be number 3

Simple : Roar Of Time, also decent stats

Great, massive, its got everything. -

Dialga is like the best steel type.I like his iron tail and his earth power.

V 198 Comments
6 Palkia Palkia

One of the best Uber Pokemon to ever exist. Considered the best revenge-killer of the Uber tier, his dual STAB attacks in Hydro Pump/Surf and Draco Meteor/Spacial Rend annihalate every dragon in the game and hit a lot of other Ubers for painful neutral damage in the rain set up by Kyogre.

Owns dialga out of the space time continuum

Go palkia - robertiannuzzo

Palkia is the number 1 lengadary Pokemon and I don, t care what they say about palkia I no he is the best Pokemon of all even of the lengadary Pokemon. Well that is what I say about palikia and I love Pokemon so please vote for palkia and pepole say nice stuff about palkia and the other Pokemon thankyou for your time.

My shiny palkia ANHILLATES the competition. It knows Spatial Rend,Draco Meteor,Hydro pump,And earthquake.

7 Ho-Oh Ho-Oh

It's Special Defense is so high together with Calm Mind it is very hard to beat.
Combined with it's Special Attack it's a VERY powerful opponent to beat.

The Fire - Flying type is a disatrous pokemon and its signature move the Sacred Fire can burn blastoise to ashes.

Ho-Oh is a pheonix. He can easily beat lugia with Sacred fire. His special defense is his best stats. And sacred fire has a one in a two chance to cause a burn. Burn decreases attack. So the opponent will have to rely on special attacks. And he has high special defense. So he is quiet good. He is always better than lugia. And he looks better

Ho Oh is just boss. Like in the first episode of The Indigo League when it flew over the rainbow. I also like how Ho Oh gives eternal happiness. :O

8 Kyurem Kyurem

Ice and dragon, which negates ice's super effectiveness towards the dragon, he's a boss! Plus, his final moves, freeze bolt and cold flare, destroy anything, they are even based on Reshiram and Zekroms moves!

His new forms easily take on any legendary like a wave of destruction

He can destroy most Pokemon with his 3 ultimate moves (cold flare Glaciate Freeze bolt) the only thing which puts him down is cold flare and freeze bolt take 2 moves to use

Probably the strongest dragon type

V 62 Comments
9 Groudon Groudon

Groudon is my offensive monster. It's defenses are enough to take 3 hits from Ice Beam and has Fire Blast to make Ice types look like a Magikarp, even Articuno for instance.

Massive, destructive red monster. -

Groudon's ability weakens water and boosts fire which is good against ice and grass. Water, ice, and grass are Groudon's weaknesses.

What! Why isn't he number one! He is the Godzilla of Pokemon, plus him and his primal form are the two heaviest pokemon ever, he could crush and of the other pokemon on this list

10 Kyogre Kyogre

Surf, ice beam, thunder, calm mind. This moveset covers all types. Kyogre's only weakness is in electric and grass types. These moves are defended against a 140 base special defense. Grass types generally don't fair well in rain (drizzle ability), and they get owned by a powerful ice beam. Thunder gets 100 accuracy in rain and owns all flying and water. Now, for surf. Surf gets 50% from STAB, 100% from rain, and gets powered by an enormous 150 base special attack. Calm mind is just filler, b/c you don't really need anything else. But, if you get a chance, calm mind will boost Kyogre's already swollen sp atk, and will transform it into a sweeper really fast.
Item-leftovers
Nature-modest(duh)
EVs-252 in sp atk, 52 in sp definitely, 100 in speed, 100 in defense, 6 in hp.

Now against other legendaries:
Zapdos-fast, yes, and high sp atk. But it won't live to attack twice, not with Kyogre's ice beam

Other 2 birds-thunder, or surf

Giratina-ice beam. ...more

How powerful is this setup now that Kyogre has a Primal Reversion? - noo7na7

Kyogre is really cheap because of his combination of water spout and drizzle. What really makes him cheap is the choice scarf. Water spout is his best move, but thunder is really good too because it never misses. I also teach him sheer cold and ice beam. The guy who taught him calm mind was an idiot because with my strategy you can usually one shot any Pokemon. Kyogre was actually the first legendary Pokemon I ever caught.

Kroger is stronger than groudon and other because with drizzle, it can make Pokemon drown and groudon (ground type) is weak against water type so kyogre is in advantage against others! And let's not forget sheer cold!

Kyogre should be at least higher than groudon, because water is groudon's weakness. - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 Zekrom Zekrom

Zekrom is together with giratina one of my favorite I don't have a real favo because there are to much awesome pokemon But I have chosen zekrom because giratina is higher on the list. But I may be the only one here that likes Black kyurem better then white that is because Zekrom looks so epic and he is so strong he could sweep pokemons in one hit easily. Zekrom really needs more popularity

Zekrom is a humungus dragon who made the world in pokemon white and black

Electric and dragon, the best two types in the game.

Electric has one weakness, ground, and can destroy flying and water types.

Dragon can resist water, fire, grass and electric, so that's all the starter types and the number 1 best type in the game.
Dragon is weak to, fairy (god dam jigglypuff), ice and dragon. Since zekrom is a legendary, it has amazing speed and can destroy a dragon before the opponent can even attack.

Zekrom looks awesome, has a really good movepool and is made of the best types in the game. Definitely the best legendary Pokemon!

Zekrom is my favorite eletric type.I think zekrom is a good guy

12 Yveltal Yveltal Yveltal is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in the 6th gen, Yveltal is a legendary Dark/Flying type Pokemon, and is the mascot of Pokemon Y. It is classified as the Destruction Pokemon. Yveltal has the ability to absorb life energy, and when its life comes to an end, it steals ...read more.

Surprised to see Xerneas up here but not Yvental. Good advertisement Pokemon, and it sure got me rallied up for the new game. It does seem to good have a good type combination, my friend and I thought he was either Dark, Flying, or a Fire type. Most likely a dual type.

Yveltal is the pokemon of destruction it can absorb all the hit-points of a pokemon with just one hit (not 45 levels lower but 5 levels lower) and it can use phantom force.

How is it that Yveltal is not up there? It's a powerful Pokemon to begin with. starting bulbapedia facts, this Pokemon wing span is bigger than lugia's it's the second largest legend! Also in Pokedex entry it takes life it's like the hades of Pokemon! Plus the overall design of the Pokemon is just intimidating by all means. Now to is typing and special move, honestly I think ghost flying would work much better based on the description of it that just my opinion, now the move oblivion wing is like the flying type giga drain! It's awesome! Not to mention it can learn psychic, dragon pulse, I believe ice beam, and for all you lugia your probably going to hate me for saying this but I think Yveltal can kick Lugia's butt anytime of the week

Yveltal is my favourite flying pokemon along with talonflame and staraptor

13 Xerneas Xerneas Xerneas is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Gen 6, it is a legendary Fairy type Pokemon, and the mascot of Pokemon X. Classified as the Life Pokemon, Xerneas has the ability to give eternal life, which occurs when the horns on its head shine in seven life. When its life comes ...read more.

A good way to advertise gen 6 for the first time, showing this amazing legendary!

Awesome way to show off 6 gen Pokemon. 3/4 of my wins have been sweeps by Xerneas, good moves it can learn, for example right now the move I have taught it it are moonblast (really good fairy type move to have) horn leech (which can be helpful in situations) giga impact (a really good normal type move to learn along with hyper beam) and the one electric type move that paralyzes it. (someone remind me what it is called. )

With it's only weakness's being Steel and Poison, it can beat almost anything! (I mean, Steel and Poison are rarely used offensively).

I'm pretty sure a bunch of people use Aggron. Your argument is invalid. - mattstat716

Xerneas is just straight up boss. He has a great appearance normally and shiny and with Geomancy he becomes even more powerful. Also the fact that Xerneas can learn some of the best moves on top of Geomancy (outrage, close combat, extreme speed, focusblast, and others) it makes him a good ally.

14 Reshiram Reshiram

Does the name vast white pokemon mean nothing to you people? And it chooses who it's trainer will be. Now that's just amazing power for you. - lugiafan2000

Reshiram is awesome because it's signature move fusion flare and it looks cool

He is the best ever pokemon... He can beat mewto, zekrom and mew with only its blue flare, fuision flare, draco meteor, outrage.. It can kill dragonite and every pokemon including legit shiny victiny and ash ketchum's pikachu

Have you seen shiny reshiram he is boss

15 Entei Entei

Entei was so sweet to that little girl in the movie where this girl lost her father because of the unknown. He protected her and OH MY GOD I JUST LOVE HIM the first time I saw that one movie, I cried when he was forced to go back and had a dream that he became my dad O. O I know, creepy but I will always love Entei. I mean, yeah he kidnapped Ash' s mom but that was just to make her happy! :D

I agree that entei saved the girl and stuff but you really have to watch the whole thing so you can see how entei really sort of replaced her missing father and helped her in a way

Super strong who doesn't love a dog that can learn all the great fire moves and any other great moves you can think of and plus he's the only Pokemon to be called "Papa"

Entei is the best Pokemon for me.

16 White Kyurem White Kyurem

How is this at the bottom! It learns such powerful moves and it's as tough as titanium! It may even be better than mewtwo!

He should be higher on the list it's better than the lord itself arceus

This guy can obliterate anything when use.

This pokemon is probably THE best pokemon in the 5th generation and I think it should have more respect.
It has just about the best special attack of any pokemon I have obtained, probably even better than my shiny level. 100 lucario, and I'm comparing him at level. 81 to that!

17 Zapdos Zapdos

It's cannot be attacked from ground type move.

Zapdos is definitely the most powerful of all the legendary birds

It's electric and flying...so it's only weaknesses are ice and rock, which honestly aren't very Common in competitive

Is he really the fastest land pokemon compared to rapidash? (in original series pokedex it says that it is the fastest pokemon)

V 28 Comments
18 Raikou Raikou

This is one of the fastest land pokemon ever. Very strong and an excellent hunter. By the way you might have mist it but the last mystery gift on pokemon heart gold and soul silver was a shiney Raikou. Have a look and see if it is still avalible.

He is a tiger Pokemon I mean you can't beat that

Awesome tiger/cheetah dog Pokemon I voted fore mew and I regret it Raikou is my fave

Probably my favourite pokemon

19 Articuno Articuno

It can destroy all the Pokemon on this list because with it's "mind reader" it's moves never miss and since "sheer cold" misses a lot but kills instantly, it kills Pokemon in one hit without missing!

Yep, my favorite legendary is articuno, and also my second legendary ever caught.

Standing next to zapdos being the first one I caught.

Now I know about stealth rocks, they ruin everything.

But not Pokemon like volcarona and talonflame.

And I think it's the same thing here.

Now most of you will say mind cold or mind reader plus sheer cold sets.

Well I don't use that set, I use a more defensive set.

Ice beam/Roost/Hurricane/protect.

It's not a bad set.

And if you don't like that, hail with snow cloak might be your style.

It's ability is pressure, which in the long run, is annoying, especially with 5pp moves on your opponent like fire blast.

And it will take a hit.105/125 on defense/sp. Defense is great, and it's hp is 90, so it's fine there as well.

Also thanks to hurricane, it has a special flying move finally.

So don't worry about that area.

It also has ancient power and water pulse if ...more

ver y hard to find on fire red and leaf green but it can know "sheer cold" and "mind reader" so the is helpful and he look's awesome! (sheer cold is a 1-ko and mind reader makes the next attack sure to hit and sheer cold barly ever hit's that is for you people that don't know)

Articuno is not only the worst legendary bird but also has a 4x weakness to rock.

20 Moltres Moltres

First legend a I saw has a great design and can deal damage, to me the original legend along with H-oh

Moltres Is Just A Baller In EVERYTHING Its strong as crap people may says he's not but I do he may not win every fight but he can at least get them down below 0-50 HP and the others are stronger for there types so moltres can't help it!

Moltres has really good stats. He may need a bit of help against articuno, but he also has really epic moves. Use Fire blast and you'll see what I mean. In my opinion, The three are the best legendaries ever.

I want to do sexual harassment with him
