Best Defensive Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 Aggron Aggron, known in Japan as Bossgodora, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Cheers usually rhyme... Plus I'm not sure Aggron actually MAKES nests.

Aggro is the wall defender on my team. In real life he would be even STRONGER in Double, Triple battles. Protect ally from hit. Ally defeated opponents Pokemon. Me and my Pokemon wins. The end

I created A cheer for him: Go Aggron you're the best you can destroy Anyone. Go Aggron yo can, head west while defending your nest! Go Aggron! Go Aggron! Go Aggron!

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.

2 Shuckle Shuckle, known in Japan as Tsubotsubo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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.

I mean it's basically made for defense which is why all it's other stats are so low, I mean come on, and the defense is also good because you can use moves that boosts your attack meanwhile they try get you and you can basically finish them. Also... it's cute while doing it's job right?

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

3 Magikarp Magikarp, known in Japan as Koiking, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It resembles an orange fish with whiskers. It was created by Ken Sugimori, Magikarp first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. It is a water type that evolves more.

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.

Shocked not to see him #1 he kills every pokemon even arcues with his one shot move Splash

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.

I don't know if this guy can be in this list. It's probably the most powerful pokemon ever having the biggest defenses, attacks, speed and HP in the game.

4 Deoxys Deoxys, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

In the movie destiny Deoxys, Deoxys almost defeated Rayqauza By him self and Rayquaza's attacks did nothing to Deoxys when they fought. Also, Deoxys can regenerate, so in my opinion, Deoxys should be the best.

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!

Defense means deoxys not other dumbs

Hides in space

5 Steelix Steelix, known in Japan as Haganeil, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

I think Steelix is the best in defense!

6 Onix Onix, known in Japan as Iwark, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Very high defense, and in my opinion rock is better then steel

Not as good as steelix

It only has base 35 hp calm down everyone.

It is the best defensive pkmn

7 Cloyster

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

8 Registeel

Registeel too fat for the competition, can take physical and special moves, unlike aggron

I use registeel in a lot of battles, it's a really good defensive and special defensive Pokemon in battle with friends or wifi

Literal steel

I took a long time to catch this thing. timer ball is a necessity. very defensive, and awesome robotic-looking Pokemon.

9 Regirock

Curse,Rest,Drain Punch, and another attacking move with a lum berry I believe, or whateve berry wakes you up makes this thing a defensive beast with a powerful punch. Only weakness is sp attackers

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

10 Bastiodon

Bastiodon's a living SHIELD! Shields are used for defense, so why isn''t it tops? It has amazing defense!

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!

Well Bastiodon is great in Defense and Special Defense 168 Defense and 138 Special Defense. How is that not good, Bastiodon can learn Stealth Rock too. So that makes it able to deal with focus sashes too. that's why I have it on my team.

The Contenders

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

Umbreon should be number 1#. His defense is 130 and his special defense is 95.

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!

12 Heatran

With 190 base defense and 170 special defense, heatran has absurd stats. Alongside the insane defences, 110 base attack and special attack is retardedly broken when paired with its BASE 180 SPEED! THIS POKEMON IS AN ABSOLUTE DEVESTATION.

13 Toxapex

Toxapex is simple too tanky to ignore. Movesets such as Stockpile, Recover, Toxic, Infestation/Liquidation are a pain to deal with. Liquidation will make use of the Merciless ability while infestation forces the opponent to stay in battle while toxic and infestation chip away at their health. When you eventually do get to low health just use Recover and make all of those little kids throw their 3DS out of the nearest window!

Best pokemon ever and it's so ruthless... my favorite

Definitely number one

He should be number one.

14 Weedle Weedle, known in Japan as Beedle, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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.

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

A favorite of champions, Weedle is the best pokemon to use. Its signature move poison sting OHKOs even the bulkiest pokemon!

15 Tyranitar Tyranitar, known in Japan as Bangiras, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Tyranitar is the best tanker

Tyranitar looks cool. And strong but has low speed. Its awesome looking!
By Hacker. Pk

Titled as the ARMOUR POKÉMON shouldn’t this Pokémon be #1 it is like a tank that can move automatically you could call it a war machine or muscle man but whatever you call it you can’t take away how strong it is it is #1 for strongest Pokémon GO TEAM TYRANITAR

16 Blissey Blissey, known in Japan as Happinas, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

When I caught her, I named her wall

Best Stamina, A tank

17 Lugia Lugia, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

The ideal wall, having great speed, godlike bulk, and offenses to back it up. Need I say more? Also he has a great movepool.

Lugia is strong and has high defense with high hp. Of course the attack is suck. But speed is super

18 Ferrothorn

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!

Ferrothorn sangat berbagoosey goosey

19 Torterra Torterra, known in Japan as Dodaitose, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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!

It's the continent pokemon, it can survive forest fires

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

20 Probopass Probopass, known in Japan as Dainose, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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.

21 Aegislash Aegislash is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Gen 6, it is a Steel/Ghost Pokemon. It is the evolved form of Doublade, and the final evolve form of Honedge. Classified as the Royal Sword Pokemon, it is said to detect innate qualities of leadership. According to legend, anyone more.

Amazing typing with2 immunities and great defense and special defense in shield form even has kings shield and that is better than normal protect aegislash is the best

A captin america sheild

With 9 resistances to some common typing such as flying,rock,bug,steel,grass, fairy,ice and the over-powerful psychic and important dragon resistance, this thing eats up hits. With the added immunity to ground type attacks(one of its few weaknesses) through its levitate ability and its move kings shield that blocks almost any attack. With an added 150 sp. definitely and 150 definitely while in shield form and 150sp. att and 150 att while in sword form it has the ability to strike back hard when it gets bored of tanking.

This thing is a pain to fight. With its dual forms and ability to make you completely ineffective and hit back hard,this for me is an essential addition to any defensive team

22 Goodra Goodra is a fictional creature in the Pokemon franchise. Introduced in the 6th gen, Goodra is a Dragon type Pokemon. It is the evolved form of Sliggoo and the final evolved form of Goomy. Classified as the Dragon Pokemon, Goodra is a very slimy, yet affectionate Pokemon, and likes to hug its trainers, more.

Just give it an assault vest or whatever it is called and you are set to go

150 base special defense is amazing, and 110 special attack makes it better. Really good gen 6 pokemon, and it's a psuedo-legendary.

It's a very good spd wall and good in both atk and spa

23 Snorlax Snorlax, known in Japan as Kabigon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Sleeps too much, but has too much defense for to kill him even though he gives you a head start or an advantage.


Outrage... no effect. random strong move... still no effect.

Snorlax is a giant squidgy ball of healthiness. With 160 base hp and 110 base sp. definitely. Once you get off 2 stockpiles this thing will soak up super effective hits like its nothing. With the ability to recover lost health through rest and sleep talk or even if you lose the sleep talk for curse and bite which further increases its definitely stat. Snorlax is a huge threat. I've swept teams with snorlax,taking a hit to give one back.

24 Mega Aggron

Mega aggron has one of the most high defenses out of any pokemon

He's so tanky

25 Metagross Metagross, known in Japan as Metagross, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Metagross is the best tanker. You need to earthquake to kill best defensive pokemon in my competitive

It's a pseudo with 9 resistances!

Metagross is awesome. It does extreme damage while at the same time taking no damage exept from earthquake.
