Top 10 Best Fighting Pokemon

Who do you think is the best fighting or fighting/other pokemon?

The Top Ten

1 Lucario Lucario Lucario is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Lucario first appeared as a central character in the film Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and later appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and subsequent sequels, also appearing more.

lucario an amazing move pool, looks awesome and has very good stats not to mention its sensing aura ability

I love lucario he is awesome
and he risked his life to save mew

He is the best Pokemon to ever be created

Just give him ice punch close combat psychic and stone edge

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

Normal blaziken can slay mega lucario

Blaziken is the best... fire and fighting? amazing... the one below is just retarded looking and is a monkey... I mean seriously... blaziken is sick looking too... not some freaking flaming monkey...

Hey come on Infernape is just as good as blaziken. Infernape is NOT retarded looking. the only ass here is you. your THE RETARDED ASS MONKEY NOT INFERNAPE!

Blaziken is the best. Blaziken has a big movepool and can learn fire type moves along with fighting type moves like close combat and focus blast. These two types combined make blaziken practically unstoppable

She's a chicken for peeps sake!

3 Infernape Infernape Infernape, known in Japan as Goukazaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

His story is just so sad


Well, lets compare first. Blaziken has lower speed, but it's hidden ability is speed boost. That and Swords dance make a great combo. It also learns awesome moves such as Brave Bird, Flare Blitz, and Hi Jump Kick. It has rather good special attack too, so Overheat is a good idea. Don't forget Stone Edge and Earthquake, which do a lot of damage. Now for Infernape. Infernape has much better speed, and the hidden ability Iron Fist, which powers up Mach Punch, the elemental punches, and Close Combat. It is a good sub-puncher (substitute and Focus Punch) and knows Fake Out. Life Orb + Close Combat + Flare Blitz + Stone Edge/Earthquake makes a good sweeper. It can also learn Acrobatics and U-turn. Okay, comparing is over, and the Pokemon I pick is... Infernape! With great Attack and Speed, it would be a great addition to your team. I hope this helps! -Jellohamster

He can dodge nearly all lucarios and Blazikens attacks!

4 Machamp Machamp Machamp, known in Japan as Kairiky, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

The ABILITY no GUARD MAKES DYNAMIC PUNCH 100 percent accurate and its stab and it always confuses that's 150 power that always hits with confusion

He hits like a truck

Have you seen him a freak of nature, love it when I had him a pokemon card also very strong, should be top with Hitmonchan a close second, a beast and legend

In case you haven't read the Pokedex mountain entry, this guy can lift mountains with a single hand. In addition to that, he can punch 1,000 times in 2 seconds. That's each arm punching 150 mountains away per second, assuming 500 mountains were flying at him every second. Mountain punching abilities aside, he learns Dynamic Punch which hits for 150 damage (thanks to STAB) and confuses the target, as well as learning Cross Chop before Lucario learns Close Combat. However, the Superpower Pokemon (yes, that's really what he's called) has his drawbacks: stats. His total stats are a mere 505, not bad compared to some other Pokemon (rattata, I'm talking about you), but compared to Lucario's 225 and Blaziken's 230, you can really begin to see his weakness. However, Machamp is by no means a weak Pokemon, and he would kick Lucario's butt due to Lucario being part steel type.

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

Much better then Gardevoir

Gallade if used properly could be the strongest fighting type Pokemon. The first reason of this is he is part psychic. By having this typing, it could be hard for his fighting type opponent to beat him due to any psychic moves. The second reason would be his blades. Due to having blades for arms he can learn an array of slashing moves. The knight can also counter all of his fighting foes. Having trouble with Fire-fighters, teach him stone edge, Grass-fighters, send them sky high with air slash, Steel/Dark-fighters, close combat to destroy them, and for just plain fighters, they'll be running from psychic/psycho cut. The swordsman is cunning and smart, using attack and speed to his advantage along with special attack. After this fighter his mega evolved white knight, his stats increase making him hard to catch and defend against. This is why the fighter of blades is the possible best in the fighting league.

Really good plus. its mega is strong

He's six things rolled into one to have an awesome persona. A Psychic, a Knight, a Ninja, a Swordsman, Master Martial Artist and a Super Hero all rolled into one. He has no mega stone though, which is just not fair at all.

My only real problem with him is his physical frailty. I love using him, but I'm not very good in making him durable. Any suggestions?

6 Heracross Heracross

My heracross KOs anything even all the Pokémon above it

Heracross! He is awesome! Always have him on my team, did a lot for ash in the Pokemon league. His Megahorn is a move to recon with!

Always smiles and if you give it a choice band, I think he gets 25% more attack. His attack itself is whopping good! And its hidden ability moxie, nothing to mess around with

He's just too awesome for words. You know you want to be him. He's so awesome. Who wouldn't want one? Who

7 Hitmonlee Hitmonlee

No Mouth but it has eyes its cool

you know you're jealous of the kick

He punch kick then beat up and become stronger then other Pokemon you know

Hitmonlee is super amazing because his Atk in general is so great that he can otk any other fighting type with counter and reversal! I know because I've tryed it with the reversal/endure combo

8 Hawlucha Hawlucha Hawlucha, known in Japan as Luchabull, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

John Cena!

Hawlucha should never change it is the best Pokemon ever

A Pokemon owned by Ash not in the Top Tens? Well I think he is really high rated because he's Top 15 in the Top 20's!

He even has a signature move! Hawlucha All the way!

9 Hitmonchan Hitmonchan

it can learn so many different types of punches like fire punch, ice punch, fire punch

Own one AMAZING. Period.

Just think of him as the little mac of all Pokemon. that and all punching moves in existence + iron fist makes this guy not to mess around with. And I repeat, ALL PUNCHING AND IRON FIST KILLS!

Average stats amazing triple kick

10 Poliwrath Poliwrath Poliwrath, known in Japan as Nyorobon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He's an awesome dude!

Poliwrath, the Tadpole Pokemon, and 1 of the 2 evolved forms of Poliwhirl. Burly and muscular, Poliwrath can exercise for hours without getting tired. It swims effortlessly through the ocean.
Now look, if I went to fitness and I saw a Poliwrath there, I'd just be sure it'd would get up kiloliters of sweat (ewww! )

He is my favorite water and my favorite fighting type but I used to think he water ice

Sure tadpole got a lot of weaknesses but teach it Waterfall and you're good!


The Contenders

11 Hariyama Hariyama

Come on, let's over come tourism and get this powerhouse on the list!

Actually, in the dimension where pikachu played by the rules, he did one shot him

Hands down best. Done.

Similar to Tsareena, I am kinda bothered by the lack of visible mouth. Kinda awkward when I feed him poke beans... But I still love him anyways!

12 Primeape Primeape

I Mike primeape

we all know and love primeape' he used to be a beast

Come on guys this is the original fighting type Pokemon. Everyone has used him. He was and still is a beast

He is such an awesome Pokemon ever When his rage increases his attacks get more powerful

13 Breloom Breloom Breloom, known in Japan as Kinogassa, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It's speed isn't anything special, and it's grass typing makes flying moves a nightmare; but awesome, since it's a grass type that can take down Ice types. It's Attack is incredible (in your face, Lucario), so I always have a Breloom on my team when I play Emerald.

Have you seen its attack stat? It's one of the best in any game, and if you teach it sky uppercut or close combat and seed bomb plus a rock move to cover weaknesses and one more move (I would suggest iron tail) you're Breloom will destroy everything in sight. Not to mention its ability which puts opponents with physical attacks sometimes to sleep or paralyzed or poisoned. Breloom wins. No questions


With technician and Mach punch, Breloom, who has the same attack stat as machamp, can break most stalls, overpower most sweepers, and eliminate squishes like nobody's business. Poison heal Breloom can even stop most status killer teams, and still packs a hefty punch with the substitute focus punch combo.

14 Toxicroak Toxicroak

The Best Fighting type as well as Poison type.

I prefer Croagunk over its evolve form

Looks like he has a big ass bulge under ma boi's chin

My favourite poison type it's a ninja frog - TENTACRUEL

15 Conkeldurr Conkeldurr

Conkeldurr is one of the best fighting types. It has amazing Hp and Attack stats and with an assault best it can be a specially defensive beast.
It's 3 abilities are great and they increase its power even more (even giving it an immunity to being burned).
It's moveset is really good (granting him great coverage) and even though it's a slow pkmn, mach punch gives it an amazing priority attack.
Conkeldurr deserves to be in the top 10 or even more.

Conkeldurr needs to be in the top 10. This guy's attack stat is huge and can crush many would be counters with its good coverage moves. It is also very bulky and defensive, especially with an assault vest. Trying to cripple Conkeldurr with will-o-wisp is quite risky because it may activate a guts boost and make Conkeldurr even more terrifying. So unless you hit it with a substantial super effective hit, good luck taking this guy down. Don't clown around with Conkeldurr, otherwise it will be the one laughing in the presence of your destroyed team.

Conkeldurr is one of my favourite Pokemon of all times. It has such a cool design its like a clown learnt karate and used it with cement rocks! Awesome! Also in the anime, this guy is a construction worker along with Warthog, so its useful in many ways and very strong!

Same base stats total as Machamp (505) and better moves ( Focus Punch and Superpower). Not to mention his ability Iron Fist, which will boost Focus Punch to even stronger, this guy wrecks your face off. So, to review:
Focus Punch power: 150.
Add STAB: 225.
Iron Fist gives it +20% so 225+45=270
So basically, if he doesn't get hit during the power up phase, you're dead.

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

He is really cool looking not just that he is really strong he has five weaknesses that's not really good but even though one of his weaknesses is fire he can still win with his fight moves. The only problem I have with Chesnaught is that he can only learn a few fight type moves

Chesnaught is so op it can learn spiky shield which protects him and deals damage to Pokemon that do physical contact.

Grass and fighting! And he looks like a chestnut and gets an exclusive move that protects it and damages the opposing pokemon on phisical contact

If it had a mega or break evolution that would be awesome

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

Love riolu as cameron on
Give him fire punch close combat copy cat vaccum wave

So cute

(i spelled that wrong) you forgot him

We didn't forget, we just prefer his evolution

18 Hitmontop Hitmontop

How could you not love this spinny boi?

I would have vote for lucario, but he was already number 1. Hitmontop has the best design of the 3 hitmons. Also his stats are more equal, or at least to evlove a tyrogue the attack and defense have to be equal. This means it is more balanced than the other to. Also I like this one more. Should be higet than the hitmons, sawk, primape, and poliwrath.

Dude have you ever played Pokemon in gameboy or cpu the I suggest you 2 train hitmontop because with it's rolling kick and revenge and especially HIGH JUMP KICK ( I love this move) it should be place at 2nd place!


Hitmontop is my favorite fighting type Pokemon.

19 Pangoro Pangoro

Pangoro is one of the most laziest Pokemon designs ever, notice how this guy was made after Kung Fu Panda, Karate Panda, War Bear, Little Panda Fighter and Chop Kick Karate Panda were made. Clearly game freak ran out of designs and just used designs that had already been made several times. Good job, Game freak. But other than that it's a good Pokemon

This guy maybe slow, but it have great type combination, fighting and dark (keep this away from fairy type though) and sadly, this Pokemon is weak againts its own type (fighting). don't have to worry about psychic types because it will have no effect! Not to mention its great base attack (124) and with its awesome ability mold breaker, it can hit anything! First time I know this Pokemon, I immediately want one!

Dark and fighting makes this guy a extreme powerhouse. Even though it looks heavy... It is able to learn high jump kick and that did a one hit KO on Lapras and Metagross! Dark type makes him immune to physic. It's a must have Pokemon throughout the game. Come on guys. We know he deserves it. Clap Clap Clap. Go Grumpy panda!

Yes, I know, he's already in the list, but he should be in it twice!

20 Mienshao Mienshao


It's speed and attack make it a great sweeper!

This guy's amazing! Drain Punch, High Jump Kick, Jump Kick, and not to mention Lucario's signature move Aura Sphere, this guy just wrecks face, should be number 2, not 48!

, how does this Pokemon have such low amount of votes. It's so amazing. It's got awesome Attack and Speed, it's basically a 2nd Class Lucario.

21 Throh

Judo! That's all I have to say

Judo and all, its moves set is absolute beast

He looks like Ernie from Sesame Street

I prefer Sawk but he's still one of my favourites!

22 Sawk Sawk

Awesome stats! With adamant nature this Pokemon is unstopable! You can get him early at the 2nd gym town. This really helps people who played Pokemon without cheats! Because they already have a Pokemon with good stats at early game. And this guy got brick break at level 29, WOW! With this Pokemon Godlike attack and not bad speed, sawk should be in the top 10. This sweeper is too OP for early gyms and you can get this guy at the town where the second gym at, this Pokemon will obviously make the game easier for you!

This Pokemon is totally meant for fighting and its gotta be the best...!

You this Pokemons karate moves (especially the karate chop)... He will knock out any Pokemon in its way...!

Personally... I'm a fan... And you should too..!

My fave Pokemon, it wrecks unprepared teams with some boosts, after 1/2 bulk ups, any team would bow to this beast.

His attack stat is quit high and he learns brick break at level 29! And he can Lear giga impact which does 150 damage

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

I love emboar because it's the first ever starter Pokemon I ever used and he' move pool is awesome and that's how I won the game

Hey look another fire fighting type. But this one is the worst of the 3

Emboar should at least be in the top 10 not 20. Having a large variety of moves in his move pool and has strong attack and lots of HP. Poison, rock, thunder, it's move pool can take out all of its weaknesses. Put any other Pokemon in the fight, emboar comes out on top.

Emboar is pretty damn good fire fighting combo, nice looks good too

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

Sacred Sword is an amazing attack with a lot of power. The Grass type allows it to deal with water Pokemon as well.

Wrecks iris hydreigon

25 Bewear Bewear

That fluffy ability! He is way too bulky... Basically the best Fighting type to me, he should definitely be on the top 10!

I think he is so cute and that is why I voted for him!

Has anyone read it's Pokedex entry? Here is the one for Moon:
"Many trainers have left this world due to it's spine-crushing hug."
HOLY S***!

26 Scrafty Scrafty


Scrafty is one of the best Pokemon there are! Mine took out the elite four and can take out one of the members all by himself. He has a REALLY good move pool and can smash almost every Pokemon. His dual types make him a really strong Pokemon. Even my cousin is afraid of him and he has been playing for longer than I have.

Scrafty is my absolute favorite Pokemon (fighting is my favorite type). With his dark typing giving him immunity to psychic attacks, it's excellent move-pool allowing him access to excellent moves like Ice-Punch or Dragon Dance. When combo'd with his ability, Moxie, Scrafty has the potential to sweep entire teams almost effortlessly. Not to mention he has pretty good defense. Especially considering he's a sweeper.

Scrafty should at least be in top 10. Speed is it's only problem. Spark doesn't matter cause he learns physical moves anyway. Great definitely and speed and good attack. With an ability like Moxie Scrafty becomes AMAZING.

27 Medicham Medicham

Not only does it sport an amazing Physical Attack with Pure Power, but it can learn all three elemental punches for the ultimate type coverage. I have a Medicham in my Pokemon Platinum Nuzlocke run, and I use her so much she is usually a couple levels higher than the rest of the team.

Medicham is a pink monkey with huge buttocks. Also it's the same types as gallade. That's an insult to gallade!

This Pokemon has an amazing move pool basing on psychic moves and fighting type moves. It dominated the team in my Platinum.

Medicham is a awesome pokemon. It is a fighting and phychic type I used it on my sinnoh team mine knows drain punch, focus blast, rock smash, and zen headbutt. And do to its typing its only type disadvantage is ghost. Plus it can learn a lot off punches.

28 Monferno Monferno

Great middle stage

He's awesome just like lucario my favorite fighting type is mega lucario

One of my first ever Pokemon!

Goes from chimchar

29 Mega Mewtwo X Mega Mewtwo X

Bets mage evolution of Mewtwo

Hey he is mega Mewtwo X he can defeat lucario in a single hit what the hell is he doing on 41 rank

My move change into fighting type when I mega evolve - Mewtwo_

He isn't fighting type

30 Stufful Stufful Stufful is a small, bear Pokémon with a pink head. It is often misspelled as "Stuffuulu". It evolves into Bewear, another bear-like Pokémon, but Bewear can squash someone's spine by hugging.
31 Cobalion Cobalion Cobalion, known in Japan as Cobalon, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Steel and fighting type

32 Sawk/Throh

I like Sawk. But Throh is good, too. Both are very strong. One Judo, the other does karate. However, if I remember correctly, they are enemies.

Sawk is very good has a alright move pool and yes could take out lucario with a karate chop due to lucario beefing half steel.

Sawk and thro have already been stated on the list

I like sawk way more than throh he stinks boo

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

Pretty solid Pokemon and is pretty cute

He's so cute! I want this Pokemon so bad! A lot of people think it's a stupid design, but Its actually very creative! I'm surprised it's a water type that's so creative!

It had a good fight with Kyurem (80 or 120 higher stats than Keldeo) and Keldeo has two forms.

He is the most awesome fighting Pokemon no doubt.

34 Seismitoad Seismitoad

He's so cool I love him!

Goes from palpitoed and then before palpitoed tympole

35 Mega Blaziken

Mega Blaz with Hi Jump Kick is real OP

Evolves from blaziken

He's a mega

36 Magikarp 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.

Best fighting pokemon ever!

He is the very best

Magikarp is the best pokemon ever, it can even beat the godly and allmighty bidoof

Do you have to put Magikarp on every Pokemon list? - MEGAMANZEROSTRIDER

Yes, Yes we do, that is the power of magikarp he is the best pokemon of every type - germshep24

37 Rattata Rattata Rattata, known in Japan as Ratta, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Rattata is not even a fighting type

Basic loser


38 Combusken Combusken

What can I say? He's a chicken that looks like a penis

Combusken is a great Pokemon but not as great Blaziken or the other fighting type Pokemon, so I think combusken should be added

Way better than blaziken

Evolves from torchic

39 Machoke Machoke Machoke, known in Japan as Goriky, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Stage 1 dude

40 Greninja Greninja Greninja is a Water/Dark type Pokemon introduced in Gen 6. It is the evolved form of Frogadier and the final evolve form of the water starter Froakie. Aside from the usual Torrent ability all Water starters have (Which raises the power of its Water moves), it also the the ability Protean, which changes more.

Not fighting type

Greninja is a water and dark type

Break evolve as well as mega evolving

Gr gr greninja is a water and dark type not a fighting type

41 Marshadow Marshadow Marshadow is a Fighting/Ghost-type Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

I thought marshadow should mega evolve but it should be cute to see a marshadow do a z move like black hole eclipse or lets snuggle forever

It is one the best fighting type pokemon when included legendar and non legendary pokemon as it is also a mythical pokemon and on the other hand it got advantage of becoming a ghost and fighting type pokemon. So in my opinion it should included in first rank

Design is the perfect combination of cool and cute, no Pokemon resists its STAB combination, and it has really great stats, ability, movepool and signature move. And signature z-move is just anothet bonus.

Marshadow op,
spam swagger then use spectral thief and steal those stats while your opponent punches themselves to death.

It has grace it has beauty and it is underrated I love this pokemon and Lucario is kind of overrated. 10/10 too perfect to turn down

In the fighting type form its almost best like lucario cause when you see one it will use relic song then close combat

Very creative design using music note line as hair

Underused and underrated
