The Top Ten

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

Swampert is really strong and it can learn a decent variety of moves to counter a lot of different types, like earthquake and hammer arm, which together, can counter 8 types. They are both good against steel and rock, so it's 8 not 10. Some idiot said Torterra could easily kill any starter pokemon, but honestly, it's one of the worst starters and is the slowest starter too. All the water type starters can learn Ice beam and fire, well has fire type moves. sure it may survive and land an earthquake or rock slide (for Charizard), but it is most likely going to lose. I'm sorry for those who love Torterra, but it's honestly not that good.

Weep, Charizard.Swampert has the highest stats 535

Best variety

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.

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.

It's 2 mega evolutions are there for a reason, you know

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

Charizard is the best. Makes sense at second place though, because swampert has the best typing. Why do so many people complain that Charizard is overrated? Okay, okay, probably is a bit overrated, but if it had the best stats over the other two starters, bulbasaur and squirtle wouldn't stand a chance of being chosen as a starter. Even so, this dragon is still chosen most often out of gen 1. Stop complaining that Charizard is overrated and go thank the creators for nerfing it enough to give a little more love to that turtle that people pick for its cuteness, or that weird vegetable that people choose for no reason at all.

Actually, ask any competitive battler and they'll say picking charizard is a joke. Venusaur is by far the strongest out of the three - Bullfrog762

3 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

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

It's got speed boost, It got a mega form before the others of it's generation, It was the original fire/fighting type that all the others try to copy, it's mega form was in Uber tier, and it looks like an absolute badass.

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.

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

This boy is a living water tank he should be higher I mean come on he a darn tank make this guy hire in the list like top 3.

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

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

DESERVES FIRST PLACE anyone who hates my Sammy are crazy AWESOME POKEMON I'm a oshawott breeder I trade them for rare pokemon and you don't even know how manypeople said they would trade a legendary if I would trade them a samurott instead. GIVE HIM FIRST PLACE COME ON! STRONG ATTACK GREAT TEAM UP WITH DRAGONITE! VOTE SAMUROT! please

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.

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

He is awesome

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.

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

In Pokémon Go terrible but in game Freak good.

It's extremely strong!
Learns Earthquake at an early level!
It can defeat a load of starters!
Charizard (It can learn stealth rock)
Pikachu - DemonSpiritGhostKitten

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.

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?

9 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

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.

My little bro has a level 80 Feraligatr and its so powerful! Man, vote Feraligatr up people, that water jet is crazy powerful and those strong legs... Feraligatr is boss man

I'm a big fan of this water type bipedal crocodile Pokémon, Since I played the Jotho games I always go for Feraligatr I hope this Pokemon I made 2 megas for my #1 favorite Water starter in my own Pokémon fangame

10 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

She deserves to be higher on this list. Why do people hate her because she’s from gen 7

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


The Contenders

11 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

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!

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

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

How is this pokemon only 12th

Great pokemon and great design for mega evolution

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 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

13 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.

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

He is strong

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.

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.

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

It's the only badass emperor pokemon

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.

16 Serperior Serperior

Contrary is OP

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?

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.

17 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

18 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

19 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


20 Tyranitar Tyranitar Tyranitar, known in Japan as Bangiras, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
21 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

22 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

23 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

24 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

25 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

33 Mewtwo X/Y Mewtwo X/Y

Mewtwo isn't a starter

34 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

EEvee is not a starter

39 Leafeon Leafeon

Leafeon is nice

40 Mightyena Mightyena

Not the final evolved form of a starter - Pipluplover

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

41 Scizor Scizor

Enough said

42 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

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

46 Poliwrath Poliwrath

47 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

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

Team Litten For Life! Kellan the Incineroar is pretty much Impossible to beat! He has brought me a lot of new memories! thanks!

Favorite starter!
