Top Ten Legendary Pokemon

The top ten list of the Pokemon series' legendaries.

The Top TenXW

1MewtwoMewtwo 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 best

Arceus is the most solid rock hardcore of the legendary pokemon ever!
He or she is the creator the creator of the pokemon universe whereas nobody knew the pokemon's real name so they adress him or her as the original one. Apparently the ancient Greek philosophers have name the original one as Arceus, his or her history goes way back not only did Arcues created Dialga to be the guardian of time, Palika to be guardian of space and Girantina to be guardian of the Disortian World as explained in the 12th movie of Pokemon Arceus created the jewel of life to restore a wasteland using the tablets of the elements only to betrayed but the timeline has been restored to stop the destruction of the Pokemon universe. Nobody knows the pokemon's element or it's gender, this pokemon is impossible to find and not easy to capture but I know Arceus will be the jewel of any pokemon team

it must be the strongest and no pokemon can beat arceus

Arceus is the most best Pokemon he can beat any Pokemon in his way arceus is awesome and he the only one I like IN THE HISTORY OF POKEMON! EVERYONE LOVE HIM EVERY MUCH!

Arceus is very powerful pokemon it is next to impossible to catch arceus

3RayquazaRayquaza 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

Even when he is normal he is already op, but when he even has a mega form, oh jeez watch out for the strongest dragon type

4MewMew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

Not only is mew cute, but it can learn almost every move! It's supposed to be the ancestor of all pokemon, so it must be arceus's ancestor too. Mew also has really good stats. Vote for Mew!

Mew can learn all kinds of moves and can use transform to its advantage in battle. An awesome and friendly choice for a legendary friend.

Definitely the best..

The list looks fine except that arceus sucks.. Any fighting pokemon can kick its ass...

Mew has bad stats, but its rare

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! Don't have him but I know he's really strong or sort of...

V218 Comments

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


THIS THING IS A BOSS. Why isn't it higher? It is a Ghost Dragon! Epic type!

Darkrai is my favorite Pokemon ever, not because of him being a legendary. It was his role in the 10th movie. One day a Darkrai stumbled into Alamos town in a very injured state. Alicia took pity on him and Oracion. Many years later Darkrai still lived in the same town still recieving massive hate from the inhabitants. When Dialga and Palkia fight very close to the town, it begins to vanish. Darkrai in fear of losing his one friend and their home fights the two deities. He manages to hold them off for a while, but he was then hit by Roar of Time and Spacial Rend at the same time. With little energy left he submerges them in a giant Dark Void knowing that it would kill him. He then dies. So Darkrai, a Pokemon down right hated by almost everyone in the town risked his life to save them all. That is an act of heroism that is unable to be overshadowed. It proves that any being is capable of having a soul. I love Darkrai more than all else. I truly do feel this way. Darkrai truly is the ...more

Darkai has been my favourite Pokemon since I watched the Pokemon movie in which he stars in. Along with water types, I love dark type Pokemon. Also, Darkrai, is supposed to cause those who are near him nightmares. Because of that, the creators based him off a few characters from horror films, for example the Phantom of the Opera. I find that awesome. - Sephirotha

Darkrai has been my favorite Pokemon since the release day of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. He is an epic mixture of power and personality. You could always say Arceus is the strongest but I feel that Pokemon almost made Arceus their "Superman. " Superman can not die unless you present him with his one vulnerability which is kryptonite. I feel that Arceus is the "God" of the Pokemon world and should not be compared to other legendaries. I think the battle that all Darkrai fans want to see is Darkrai vs Mewtwo. I feel that Mewtwo is only higher on the list because he is the most well known Pokemon other than Pikachu. If everyone else knew Darkrai's true power, I think that he would be #1

By far my favorite. It shows how do you don't need to be huge to be an OP looking legendary. The intimidation of Darkrai isn't the fear of his size, but the fear of not knowing the extent of his power.

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. -

It can control time

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.

Beast mode in battle. In the movie he had one of his pearls cracked and still went toe to toe with a fully healthy dialga

V127 Comments

the almighty deoxys
may even be able to beat mewtwo

ok I know you need action replay to get it but with a deoxys shiny lv100 with wondergaurd your basicly invinsible. wondergaurd is a ability that makes it so only super effective can damage your pokemon and you need cheats to get it.

deoxys can change form in an instant hahah... and deoxys.. beat rayquaza either..

He can regenerate energy also so cool

The Contenders


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

It is the first pokemon Ash encountered so that makes it special in a way!

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

It is the best

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.

I love its primal form

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.
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!

I love water and whales are awesome that's why I choose him over groudon

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!

Looks cool and it's the best

16YveltalYveltal 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 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

Never knew it was a pokemon

17XerneasXerneas 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 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

It is the best! It should be at least top ten

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

It looks so awesome

Jirachi is the Pokemon of wishes. It may not be very strong but it's cuteness counteracts that. Jirachi is a true Pokemon and zeal rom an Reshiram can just go die in a hole because they affect nothing and have no true power but to bring people with the lust of strength together to capture them.

I loved it in the movie and I loved it in the game. Jirachi is simply the cutest and best legendary Pokemon. Make a wish everyone! Then you will love Jirachi like I do! It has an eye on it's stomach people. That's cool!

jarachi is a really cool pokemon no doubt just face the facts!

It's the most adorable Pokemon

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.
