The Top Ten

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

Best variety

Swampert is the best starter not charizard charizard suchs with swampert

If you play ORAS, and you want to counter everybody? Pick Mudkip! Mudkip can counter the rock gym, marshtomp will take down the electric, fire, normal (with protect, since they use Slaking), and flying (with rock moves). Mega Swampert can take out the Psychic gym with surf since they are rock types. In Omega Ruby, the battles will be easier, since Primal Groudon's ability will let you take out the water gym. Together, they will defeat the Elite 4 and destroy Steven's team. Even without the super effectiveness, There is no major grass opponents (except for your rivals Sceptile). Also, Swampert has the highest base stats for any starter. Blaziken is my favorite starter, but stat wise, Swampert is my pick.

Swampert should be best overall starter. Water/ground is unbelievable typing. Only one weakness and it is 4x to grass. Teach him roar and scare away any grass enemies or defeat them with ice beam. Great physical attacker, plus STAB for earthquake is unbelievable. He also evolves from a mudkip which is a really cool starter. This dude NEEDS to be number 1!

2 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Charizard first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. They have later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated more.

Not the best. It's X evolution is way better. Duh - mushroll2241

What's this doing at #2?
it should be out of the top 10 - mfys

Weak - Pokemonfan10

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

I'm sorry, but how many other starters can say their Mega is in the Uber-Tier?

Mega Blaziken is one of the toughest fully evolved starters in the game. The original Fire/Fighting and the toughest one. Should easily be a top 5 with Greninja, they are the only two starters in the Uber tier for competitive battling.

I got a torchic and while it was level 3 it could take out level 9 pokemon in a few hits. I was not disappointed with any of torchic's evolutions. Blaziken should be higher up than 9.

I am a Blaziken fan. But I had originally picked Sceptile for my team. I got a third of the way through the game and was so dissapointed, I reset the game and picked Blaziken. Never let me down since. I love Blaziken and he is really powerful.

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

Samurott is OP I have it if you teach it megahorn or ice beam along with some powerful water moves it can fight ANY pokemon the only big weakness being electric types. - Incontrollable9_YT

Oshawott was my starter and first Pokemon and was always reliable. After becoming a Samurott it never fails to impress me with it's strength and endurance. It is the formidable Pokemon after all

They have missed a lot of opportunity with Samurott when it comes to typing, movepool, and stats but I love him for his creative design and him overall. I don't see how a generic orange lizard can be more creative than a samurai shell-armored otter/sea lion who pulls swords out of his arms. You mess with Samurott, you mess with his double swords.

Samurott is trash in battle. Can't you people see that? - InklingSethO

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

Yes - Espeonz

Typhlosion is just awesome! Even his name just sounds cool! And his design as well as its evolution family! And strong too! It should get a mega evolution - PokemonGOSucks

Come on! He's the world champion for 2011!

My favorite starter by far

V 4 Comments
6 Infernape Infernape Infernape, known in Japan as Goukazaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Infernape kicks butt

Best Pokemon EVER!

Fire - Fighting, has neutrality to stealth rock. Is extremely fast and can dish out some crazy high damage, especially if equipped with a choice band. Infernape manages to deal super-effective damage against both other final evolution starters in it's generation. Which is extremely impressive. Also it's faster than Blaziken so ggez.

Fighting Fire, even though it's a recycled idea it's good typing

V 12 Comments
7 Feraligatr Feraligatr Feraligatr, known in Japan as Ordile, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It's better than that overgrown furry typhlosion

So awesome and op, My favorite water starter has the best final evolution ever.

I love pokemon it's a Aligator with a tomahawk

Its access to the, probably, best boosting move, dragon dance, makes it such a hard hitter combined with sheer force and a life orb, so even tough I think that are better starter pokemon, I noticed such a potential in this guy since his coverage, ice puch, is actually good combined with the sheer force, being probably the best user of a move kinda underrated. Superpower, Aqua Jet, Swords Dance and Earthquake are here too to make his opponents shiver.

8 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.

Greninja is the best. Who can say no to a awesome water ninja. With its amazing speed and protean ability. STAB on every attack, yes please

Yay! greninja is #9 I was afraid it would be #13 because in top 10 best starter pokemon froakey was #13

Protein Greninja is unreal. Confuse your enemies by changing type and always hitting with STAB attacks. He is the fastest fully evolved starter so he will always attack first. He is also pretty badass looking... Should easily be top 5 in my opinion!

What! I'm the same person that complained about Emboar being in the top five. I love Greninja! Screw Emboar, Greninja should be in the top ten AT LEAST!

9 Primarina Primarina

Primarina is my fifth favorite pokemon, she needs more love. She gets bashed on everyday thanks to the god forsaken rowlet, a pokemon that deserves the death penalty

I one-shot Ultra Necrozma with my Primarina...
And finished the whole game with her, without any Z-moves.

It's so beautiful and strong

My favorite Pokemon EVER - Arianna

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

His cannons are killers

Way better than everyone

Good attack and special attack and moat of all beastly defences in my mind it is the best starter by far

He's literally a hippo with tanks in his shell. He is super powerful and dominated all competition in leaf green. Why isn't he higher?

The Contenders

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

How can this pokemon be 13th?
It's much better than swampert or blaziken. This is my favorite pokemon ever. I can't stand this

What! What! That's impossible! Really impossible! Sceptile number 14! Mega Sceptile and Mega Charizad X are the only fully evolved starter dragon - type pokemon. And Swampert number 2! Swampert is weaker than my FAVOURITE POKEMON SCEPTILE.
It can learn energy ball, bullet seed, leaf blade, frenzy plant, dragon claw, dragon tail, headbutt, leaf storm and overgrow. Its attack becomes double if this super Pokémon uses overgrow. And Swamper, Blastoise, Feraligatar, Primarina, Samurott and Greninja are actually water types and weaker than this King. Most people think that only fire and water types are best. But hey don't know that grass types are capable of defeating fire types. So Go! VOTE for NATURE SAVER SCEPTILE!

What the heck, Sceptile should be much higher. Grass as a whole is definitely weaker than Fire and Water, but Sceptile learns awesome moves and is one of the fastest grass types

It is the fastest grass type and the fastest dragon type ever. Also, high special attack.

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

Emboar sucks SO BAD! Plus, another fire/fighting Pokemon. Not in my house! At least the other fire/fighting Pokemon are good and can kick ass. I mean, emboar lost to his pre evolution. He should definitely be lower!

Emboar is slow and ugly. He is pretty easy to kill as well. He should be last. Honestly I just want to cast emboar out of my mind

Are you serious, in just gen 5 starters in general, the other two are better in battle then this and the only thing I like about it is that I can have loads of bacon

This is the stupidest starter ever. The third fire-fighting starter IN A ROW, and he just sucks. Fighting type in general is terrible.

V 11 Comments
13 Delphox Delphox Delphox, known in Japan as Mahoxy, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Delphox isn't in the top 10? Better Nerf Greninja! Seriously though, Delphox is awesome and deserves more love than the chestnut and overrated ninja. I don't hate Greninja, he just is way too popular and Delphox is better.

Best pokemon, not just starter. So wish it got a mega evolution.

I like the way she looks and is very strong

It can take down almost any Pokemon. Delphox is my star in competitive battles, it's so cool.

V 10 Comments
14 Torterra Torterra Torterra, known in Japan as Dodaitose, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This is my personal favourite design for any starter despite its lackluster competitive appearance. I may well be doused in nostalgia but how is a huge turtle with a tree on its back not cool?

Torterra is one of the strongest starters I've ever trained and it can beat fire and flying types as well. It beat every Pokemon except for Gym leader Candice's Abomasnow and some other quicker ice types such as Weavile.

Why is this guy so far down on the list? He is OVERPOWERED in battle, he is a giant turtle, he is a WALKING EARTH, and it is just torture by its name (torterra)

Torterra is a super powerful pokemon, and if trained correctly, it can easily beat swampert, infernape, anyone. I have a level 100 torterra, and man its powerful

15 Serperior Serperior

Yes! Snivy is the best gen 5 starter that even looks decent in its final evolution. How can that ugly pig or the bizarre I-don't-know-what-that-is water thing higher on the list than the awesome serperior?

No way Guys more votes for Serperior,Serperior should be there at the top 10 not samurott or emboar

Contrary to popular beLeaf. Haha contrary and leaf storm + high base speed. Pretty cute! It's on par with Sceptile in regards to coolness. Wait for the mega evolution, possibly Grass/Dark?

His hold back move is GREAT at catching wild Pokemon. Should be at least in top ten.

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

Two words: Bulbasaur Propaganda.

Venusaur is very strong and should be ranked much higher than this

My first pokemon I ever had and my most beloved

Razor Leaf, Toxic, Leech Seed, and Earthquake. Solid movepool for venusaur

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

How is Chesnaught here? He's a beast! How is Typhlosion in no. 3? He sucks!

Chesnaught is a great starter! Its hidden ability can easily help reck gengars! Chesnaught is pretty protective and u can trick people with it! #CHENAUGHTWILLKICKYOURASS


Chesnaught is easily the most powerful. He's really loyal and will use his own body to protect those that he loves. ❤ Chesnaught

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

Worst Pokemon ever

Defeated charizard and venusaur and the last

Deated primal kyogre

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

How the hell is this so far down? The only Steel-type final evolution of a Starter, & therefore has the most resistance to all of the typings, cutting 8 of them in half, 2 of them to a quarter strength, and 1 with completely no effect! Charizard is easily overrated (DUH, as one of the first Starters) and could easily be defeated by Empoleon with the wide variety of moves it can learn

Might I add, one of (if not the best) Shiny coloration of all Starters!

My Empoleon beats up my rival's Torterra every time! I just taught it drill peck and adios Torterra! My Empoleon beat the Electric gym by itself just using Surf. Water is definitely the best starter choice and Empoleon gets steel which gives it so much more resistance than the other starters. Empoleon is the best!

Get him at the top. My Empoleon is level 100 and he has never lost a battle with ever.

How the hell is empoleon here he should be in top I mean come on it's brave a good leader strong come on hydro cannon he's powerful charizard sucks

20 Decidueye Decidueye

A grass/ghost type that can learn flying type moves and has it's own Z-Crystal. Need I say more?

It's a mastapeiece

She is beauty.
She is grace.
She will punch you in the face.

Everyone loves hoodies, cloaks, archers, and owls so then you have this amazing dream pokemon - Reaper_Red

21 Mega Blaziken Mega Blaziken

It's just cool and I think best fighting and fire starter OP because it's best item speed boost if it has that its OP

It’s so op

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

Raichu technically isn't a starter. In the video games, you can only catch Pikachu and Pichu, not start with them. - mushroll2241

This comment is for the person who put (Raichu isn't even a starter evolution! ) if you ever played pokemon yellow the only pokemon you start with is a pikachu then you get a thunderstone plus a little trading back an forth of the same starting pikachu then it'll take the stupid stone then you have the raichu which I might add can one shot a charizard, blastoise, an some of the others on the top of the list

Raichu is underrated, it can use hyper beam. If it learn quick attacks before evolving in Raichu, it can wreck PIkachu once got hyper beamed to the face by a Raichu. The only reason Pikachu has beaten Raichu is becuase it was slow. Raichu also has many advantages from evolving, like advanced hearing (which I just found out) and a longer tail.

Raichu deserves more recognition. Pikachu can die - KinglerMaster

23 Mega Sceptile Mega Sceptile

Even though this kinda doesn't count and isn't my favourite starter... screw it, it's a ' Grass and Dragon type. I don't care if it looks like a Christmas tree its amazing.

Is this true? MegaSceptile 23rd? ARE YOU CRAZY?!
Calm down, I know there are a lot of people that love sceptile and they have voted him. But MEGASCEPTILE?
He has even a second type!

Gaining the dragon typing and lightning rod, he can hit harder while saving any water/flying type teammates.

This thing is beast!

It can plant trees that can turn into weapons and make seed bombs

24 Ash-Greninja

This guy is a beast he looks so cool in his shiny form but 24th make him higher this is ashes strongest Pokemon

I like the shuriken, and more attack power.

Getting the huge water shuriken he is the most powerful if he uses double team with it

He should be at #1 because he will always be the most powerful pokemon ash has ever owned

30 Mega Charizard X Mega Charizard X

To many sweeps it is a god

He is strong but not My Overall Favorite


31 Gyarados Gyarados Gyarados is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It evolves from one of the weakest Pokemon, Magikarp. But Gyarados has a high attack power (as of gen VII, mega Gyarados is ranking #19 for highest attack stat & would rank #10 if legendary Pokemon aren't included), and more.

Gyarados is not a starter

32 Mega Diancie Mega Diancie


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

37 Mega Swampert Mega Swampert
38 Mightyena Mightyena

Not the final evolved form of a starter - Pipluplover

Best Pokémon, I don’t care what anyone says.

39 Scizor Scizor

Enough said

40 Pikachu Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

I agree Pokemonfan10 - mushroll2241

Not fully evolved - Pokemonfan10

Yes and no because according to the games, as well as the anime, Pikachu can only evolve by using the Thunderstone. However, there are cases where a Pikachu can refuse to evolve, such as the one you gain in Pokémon Yellow, as well as Ash's Pikachu. - mullen9

41 Gumshoos Gumshoos

We need to build the wall

Thank you Kanye very cool!

42 Vaporeon Vaporeon Vaporeon, known in Japan as Showers, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

As on starter lists Eevee technically is a starter, well a half starter I guess but still. Vaporeon is the strongest Eevee evolution...

EEvee is not a starter

43 Poliwrath Poliwrath

It was reds first starter in the manga

44 Incineroar Incineroar Incineroar, known in Japan as Gaogaen, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

His stats are the best out of all of them check it on Pokemon guide

How did Typhlosion, Emboar, Decidueye, and and Primarina get higher in the list!

Oh give me a break guy is like the best starter pokemon in the alola region

Sadly, I just chose this starter in Sun and Moon to see how much it sucks...And they were right...
