Best Defensive Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 Aggron 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.

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

Aagron has a bunch of defense, it is indeed very defensive AND offensive when needed to. I could take down a whole team all by itself... If there's no Pokemon with Surf or Earthquake.

Wait a sec, dude, where is snorlax?

2 Shuckle

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

I had a shukle and hade a battel with a level a hundred mega mewto uesing huperbeam with 150 power and ai hade a level 29 shukle and it only did 2 helf points

3 Deoxys Deoxys

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!

4 Steelix

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 beat

5 Magikarp Magikarp Pokemon. Orange fish with whiskers resembled by only one hair. Water type. Evolves to Gyarados at level 20.

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.

Worst ever

6 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

7 Onix Onix

With 160 base Defense, and eviolite, this is probs for the best physical tank ever

8 Registeel Registeel

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.

9 Bastiodon

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!

10 Regirock Regirock

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

The Contenders

11 Umbreon Umbreon

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!

High hp, sp. Def and toxic, moonlight, wear out pokemon and it just keeps coming! Give it leftovers or rocky helmet

13 Weedle Weedle

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

Weedle is a necessity to any team his base stats are amazing and strong shot is best move 2k16

Umm I don't know why wheedles on this list but I guess base like 10 defense is pretty bad ass laugh out loud

15 Lugia Lugia

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

16 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!

17 Torterra Torterra

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

18 Blissey

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

Blissey has one of the highest hp in the game. Also the combination of sing and it learning the move dream eater makes it a great offensive Pokemon
