Best Defensive Pokemon
The Top Ten
Aggron is my teams tank it has a great move pool and it can take a hit and deal one out with great power in attack and defense it's my go to, I named it accurately named it, Dooms-Day.
Aggron does have good defense but his special defense base is only 60 :/ so not all that good
Honestly you can't say that shuckle is better - we are talking about defense and they have the same defense. Only Aggron has better HP so it can take physical moves a lot better. Along with that, it has literally 14 times shuckle's attack so it can attack and defend for itself pretty well. - Rayquasar
Aggron is an amazing pokemon, almost every team needs one!V 19 Comments
Though you won't see many on competitive teams, shuckle practically absorbs both special and physical attacks, with a 230 base defense and a 230 based special defense. If it had more than a base 20 HP, shuckle would be a necessity for every team.
Shuckle is the ultimate defensive wall, with power swap it can become a destructive force. If you want a stall Pokemon, Shuckle can do great with sticky web access and contrary shell smash.
Yup best defensive pokemon, it will make the opponent cry if you use power split and keep using rest
No, no, no. Aggron? No. 1? Aggron isn't even in the top 3 in real defense. Shuckle is the Defense master, also it is the Sp. Defense master. It has Sp. defense and defense at 230 each. No. 2 is Steelix with 200 defense. Aggron is no. 4 (tied with Cloyster), with a defense of 180. Shuckle wouldv'e been almost as bad as Sunkern and other pokemon if its defense and sp. defense were as bad as its attack, sp. attack, speed, or hp. The hp doesn't even matter because of it defense. A good moveset would be toxic (poison 'em - bad attack/special attack), sandstorm (use this after toxic - bad attack/sp. attack), rest (get back up at low health), and earthquake (get revenge on steel types for nothing so far working on them, and weakness to them)V 25 Comments
180 defense AND special defense? DEFENSE form ATTACK form and SPEED form! Dude! This pokemon is everything in one! How could you not love it!
Incredibly well balanced, this Pokemon serves as both a team fortress and destroyer. When leveled up to 100 this Pokemon becomes the pride of the trainer and the symbol of greatness. Absolutely a majestic sight to behold.
Having one of the most useful moves, Magikarp destroys anything that stands in his way even before evolving into mighty Gyarados and can also play a defensive role pretty well. It also has good speed so nothing can escape its wrath.
No Pokemon can stand up to the great Magikarp. With its incomparable stats, not to mention Magikarp's great move pool including one of the best competitive moves ever, splash, this Pokemon can take down any other Pokemon.
MAGIKARP IS A GODV 36 Comments
Very powerful in defense, it's a shame that his other stats aren't up to standard with his devastatingly strong defense. If you want a Defensive Pokemon in your team this is the guy.
A major Power house. If a human punched the bleed.
Stops physical attacks with ease and is a great pokemon to have in your party
Beast Pokemon nobody can beatV 1 Comment
One of the most defensive non Ubers in the game, Skill Link gives multi-strike moves always hitting quintuple. Its only problem however is its Special Defense which is really low. But throw something Special Defensive on the team, such as Probopass or Umbreon and that problem is sorted.
Got great defenses and skill link with icicle spear and rock blast with shell smash and item focus sash makes it almost unstoppable
With 160 base Defense, and eviolite, this is probs for the best physical tank everV 2 Comments
I use registeel in a lot of battles, it's a really good defensive and special defensive Pokemon in battle with friends or wifi
I took a long time to catch this thing. timer ball is a necessity. very defensive, and awesome robotic-looking Pokemon.
I think bastiodon because it's pretty cool and it's defense and special defense are both good
He would be by far my favorite Pokemon, don't care what other people say, I THINK HE IS A LEGEND!
Bastiodon is a tough cookie
This guy takes hits like a baws!V 2 Comments
In my emerald my regirock has 431 base defense.
OK Reggie rock by stat wise has that tied 200 definitely with other Pokemon but he also has good attack and before fairy type came out it was only this guy to take down dragon types of the elite four
Dude, Umbreon has awesome Base Defense, Sp. Defense and Health! She can take a Focus Blast or Punch and still survive. She can learn crippling moves like Toxic and if someone tries to bring down Umbreon, Heal Bell and Moonlight are the way to go!
Lovely mixed bulk. The way to go if you love stall. An excellent cleric, with access to both heal bell and wish, you can help your other Pokemon survive longer too!
My Umbreon didn't even faint from a fire blast or focus blast. I was surprised it had such awesome defense. Go Umbreon!
Umbreon is just the best of all with only 3 weaknesses. Ability synchronize can even poison a Magic bounce pokèmon and then heal it whit Heal bell. Even has access to Curse and Payback if you want to set up.V 6 Comments
With never-before-seen typing and outstanding movepool, this savage pokemon will stop at nothing to tear away its enemy. Its magnificent special defense is only outstripped by its own defense, which makes it extremely durable and able to take hits exceptionally well. - Rayquasar
It is a worm A WORM it will tear through a mega rayquaza with ease a few poison stings and tackle is all it takes now repeat after me "all hail the mighty weedle" or he will kill all of your pokemon in the PC
Weedle is a necessity to any team his base stats are amazing and strong shot is best move 2k16
I like WeedleV 1 Comment
Tyranitar looks cool. And strong but has low speed. Its awesome looking!
By Hacker. Pk
Toxapex is a tank. With maxed IV training, this Pokémon is impossible to stop. Pair it with toxic, venoshock, and withbthe merciless ability this Pokémon cannot be stopped. Weaknesses? It doesn't matter because this Pokémon will live through any hit.
Lugia has highest speed n defense n hp
Lugia has a high special defense along with great attacks, this Pokemon is hearted to be in a favourites team
Lugia is strong and has high defense with high hp. Of course the attack is suck. But speed is super
With a base defense of 131 and base special defense of 116, along with a grass/steel type advantage, this Pokemon can hold off entire teams.
Yes it's the best always pick it. Just always.
Pluse can learn both stealth rocks and spikes, can't be leech seeded, or spored!V 2 Comments
Blissey is a tank literally a wall nothing can actually take her down
Funny thing is... it has one of the lowest defenses in the game - Rayquasar
When I caught her, I named her wall
so opV 3 Comments
Super strong and has such a cute evolution line, plus his defense is outstanding. He has a tree growing out of his back for crying out loud!
With earthquake & higher defenses he can beat even fire types;perhaps grass-ground combo is great.
My torterra is the tank of my team even dusknor couldn't stand a chance
How could you not love that moustache.
It can take any hit like its nothing except maybe a Close Combat or Earthquake
It is strong.
