The Top Ten

1 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.

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

He is definitely among the strongest fire pokemon ever (if not the strongest). he's the best pokemon ash ever had and it's him that made ash the trainer he is today

Mega Charizard is cool, but charizard is just a flying orange lizard with anger issues.

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

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!

He has one weakness. ONE. And he can learn Ice Beam to counter it, so you have that. On top of that, it has immunity to one type and is resistant to four. Plus, he's just gotten better now that he has a mega evolution. Oh yeah, and don't forget that he looks awesome and evolves from one of the cutest starter pokemon ever.

Yes - Pokemonfan10

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

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

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

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

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.

Blazikin is just OP. I had it fully take down one elite four team, and I beat swampert, in a 1v1 battle and swarpert went first.So if your playing ruby or sapphire choose this god.
P.S if I were to vote for another Pokemon if would be Primarina it's better then litten 24/7 cause its fairy/water

5 Typhlosion Typhlosion

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

Yes - Espeonz

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

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

It is the best fire Pokemon

Best Pokemon EVER!

7 Feraligatr Feraligatr

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

Feraligatr is one of my favourite Pokemon and my favourite starter. Should be number 1

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

V 11 Comments
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.

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!

Swampert. REALLY?! Emboar. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Greninja and infernape should be way up there instead of those two. (No offense to any swampert or emboar fans)

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

9 Primarina Primarina

My favorite final evolved starter ever and my second favorite Pokemon overall. It was a joy going through the game with Primarina and I always bring it with me in online battles and official competitions.

Primarina is just the most beautiful evolution ever! I mean you know right?

First and only Fairy starter as of now. A real dragon slayer

It's so beautiful and strong

V 9 Comments
10 Blastoise Blastoise Blastoise, known in Japan as Kamex, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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?

I love using Blastoise competitively he should be ranked a lot higher than this. HE'S A TURTLE WITH CANNONS!

Blastoise should be higher up the list as it can learn amazing attacks

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

V 10 Comments

The Contenders

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

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.

A level 100 Delphox is practically unstoppable. I have one. - RiverClanRocks

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.

V 10 Comments
13 Sceptile Sceptile Sceptile, known in Japan as Jukain, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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.

This guy is so much better than swampert in my opinion and anybody who is normals opinion is and blaziken should be first (but I prefer sceptile)

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

14 Torterra Torterra

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?

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)

Its slow and outshined by the other sinnoh starters

V 25 Comments
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?

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.

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

V 8 Comments
16 Venusaur Venusaur Venusaur, known in Japan as Fushigibana, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

How. Is this Pokémon. Not top ten. People are probably clueless on how amazing this Pokémon was compared to the current Pokémon games, which don’t compare to Venusaurs greatness.

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

Worst Pokemon ever

Defeated charizard and venusaur and the last

Deated primal kyogre

Why last - Zume

19 Empoleon Empoleon Empoleon is a large, navy blue, penguin-like Pokémon. It has a wide, yellow beak with three pointed horns that form a trident-shaped crest and small, blue eyes. Large horns are a symbol of leadership and strength for Empoleon. There is a blue marking resembling a crown over its eyes and a white, lacy more.

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!

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!

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

I think Empoleon is pretty cool and should be rated higher because Piplup is my all time favourite starter.

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.

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

Raichu isn't even a starter evolution!

23 Mega Sceptile Mega Sceptile

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

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!

This thing is beast!

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

Gyarados is not a starter

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

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

It doesn’t suck, it’s just the moves players may pick will make it suck.
