Best Pokemon Characters

The Top Ten

1 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.

Know Pokemon is better than Pikachu he is powerful aggressive but most of all he is SO cute! I just love his lightning tail!

Cute and awesome it can electrify you and it hated ash at first lovein it I mean, how can you not love this Pokemon ok going too far I am not going back to skitty is the cutest all over again but just remember, pikachu is awesome bye pikapipipipi

It's very adorable, cute and most of all very strong. No one can loose PIKACHU...

Pikachu is weak, sure, but he's one heck of a character in the show!

2 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 ...read more.

Charizard is way tougher than any pikachu, the only reason he is below pikachu is because pikachu is the main Pokemon of the Pokemon franchise. But strictly for strength, power, and ability, Charizard is the best Pokemon, WAY better than Pikachu!

Um, hello? It matters on how the stats and how the trainer trains it. Not how big it is.

AMAZING POKEMON charizard is one of my most favorites he's so COOL

The most dangerous fire type pokemon in all of the regions including the unova region starter empoar. It has great moves such as overheat, flamethrower. It also has awesome details, GO CHARIZARD!

charizird is just so ultimate he has the power to control the univerese

3 Mew Mew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

Mew is the First Legendary and Mew is cute. Mew can learn any move, Arceus can't learn every move
I have one my self and even Ash meets Mew 3 times! Mew is pretty rare. Mew like kirby but better! Arceus is like God but Mew pink and pink is awesome!

Arceus? Nope. Mew is the real PokeGod. It can learn ANY move due to the fact it is the ancestor of ALL Pokemon and the Pokedex says it's so rare that experts consider it to be a mirage. Not even the developers of the original games were aware that it had been programmed into the Pokedex until the guy who had created it came clean after the games were released, that's why it never appears naturally in the wild in Red/Blue/Yellow. To cap it all off, if you've seen Pokemon the First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back, you'll know exactly what an strong, adorable and playful Pokemon Mew is. Awesome.

It is the strongest among the pokemon... It is cUte IOts is awesome it has a power of psychic, bubble bim and safeguard but most of all his legendary but twice his also an ancient pokemon...!

Mew is so completely ADORABLE! If you've ever watched "Lucario and the mystery of Mew, " you'd know that she is the best. Mew is also, pretty much, the strongest, cause she can learn ANY Pokemon move. Arceus can't. Mew is so awesome!

4 Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

Damn it!
This brings back memories... I was a boy 12, to be exact, I had a master ball and I was ready. For some reason I thought oh this is not enough of a challenge so I weakened it down to low health with my charizard's fire spin but it burnt it and killed the Mewtwo.
I was furious but I still love him

The ultimate Pokemon with ultimate moves, my one in soul silver could destroy every Pokemon in the elite four without fainting, love it

Mewtwo is better than any pokemon. He has character development and he is the most powerful Pokemon of all the time and he can control minds so he is stronger than Arceus. He also had a really sad childhood and he is very interesting. He is also kind since we all know how he has reformed. He is just the best. Charizard deserves 2nd place or on the same place with Mewtwo and Pikachu should be after them. Pikachu is cute but he doesn't have so much character development and personality as the other two. Plus he is the face of Pokemon so that's why he is popular

ULTIMATE AND UNDEFEATABLE. He dominates in the games and kicks the ass of all the other pokemons in the anime. He took out an entire herd of tauros just by looking so he is one million percent the BEST.
Pikachu is really stupid and so
Weak, he just comes in all episodes so all people know him. He shouldn't even be in top 10000 list.
Charizard is also damn stupid and idiotic and gets his day done by a water gun.

5 Misty Misty, known as Kasumi in Japan, is a character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo and created by Satoshi Tajiri. She’s the gym leader in Cerulean city & specializes in water Pokemon. In the games, she’s known as ‘the tomboy mermaid.’ ...read more.

Misty was a great character on Pokemon. Her personality sets her apart from her three older sisters who would always tease her and make her feel down. Her bond with Ash and Brock is what made the first five seasons worth watching. She may have been short tempered and strict, but that made Ash the great battler who he is now. She would help Brock to stay calm around the pretty girls who he would flirt with, and sometimes would knock some sense into him and Ash. She is a great gym leader and water type Pokemon trainer. Anyways, her relationship with Ash was adorable! He would turn jealous when a boy would flirt with Misty, or she would turn jealous when someone would flirt with him. You don't see Ash jealous when other boys start flirting with May, Dawn, Iris, or Serena. Ash deeply cared for her, and so did Misty to him. Misty followed Ash with the excuse that Ash owed her a brand new bike after he and Pikachu destroyed it. Along the way, she developed a huge crush on him as he showed ...more

Misty is the best, why on earth isn't she ranked the best?! Seriously she is the best and the one everyone is in love with! Please vote for her because she is the best ever! She was one of Ash's first companions, she is also the best so vote for Misty as I cannot stress how much better she is than the other losers!

How is magikarp higher than her? Misty is the best character in the entire show! She deserves to be in the top tens, not 23 place! Misty is pretty and I find myself a lot like her cause of her attitude. Water is the best Pokemon type witch is also why I like her. She should meet Dawn. Misty needs to be ranked higher.

She dose not defeat May but everyone else, the only reason why she's down here is because she's a little bit of a wimp, like Ash.

6 Ash Ash Ketchum, known as Satoshi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo. Ash is training to be a Pokemon Master, with his buddy Pikachu. Ash tries to stop the evil Team Rocket from stealing his Pikachu.

Ash is garbage.

Trash Rectum is $hit.

Ha ha. The main Pokemon anime character is 7th. Ha ha.

Ash is amazing he is the most main character in all the series

7 Brock Brock is a character from Pokemon and is created by game freak & Nintendo. He was the first gym leader in pewter city, and specializes in rock Pokemon . ...read more.

Brock is hilarious because he constantly falls in love with beautiful girls. (constantly means nearly every episode that he is in! ) And also he is a gym leader.. I guess that's cool...

I don't know why he doesn't have a girlfriend. He literally just treated the bonsly like a human child.

Brock made the DRYING PAN!

My Favourite Pokegirl: May
My Favourite Pokemon: Pikachu
Best character in the whole Pokemon franchise: BROCK
Change my mind

8 May May is a female companion to Ash in the generation 3 anime. She was also the female character in Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire. May (anime) debuted in the 275th episode, "Get the Show on the Road!" She was going to be a trainer, but wasn't excited about it. After meeting a ...read more.

One of the reasons I like May is due to her actually changing as a character. I the beginning May was somewhat clueless and didn't like pokemon. As time went by May found her passion in coordination and she grew to love pokemon. The other characters just remain the same. May actually received development.

May is the best Developed Pokemon female-lead, and actually it seems very realistic, she did have something else she desires rather than Misty, and as for Dawn, She is too Obnoxious, a little bit annoying for me!

I liek Mudkipz too but I had to vote for May. I think I cried when Misty left, but I really don't miss her anymore. I miss May though. Will we ever get too see her join Ash again? I doubt it. I've kinda lost faith in the writers nowadays. I mean, Brock is even gone forever now! I just check Serebii like once every month to check if something interesting has happened to Pokemon lately. It was a few years ago I got really good news now, but I'll keep waiting. If I got to make one wish I would take May back to Pokemon. Who cares about money human piece anyway?! Can't we at least get to see all the old characters visit pallet when Ash comes home next time, or is it too much for you writers to give us old hardcore fans?

How is May not in the top 5 let alone Ash? May was the sweetest, prettiest, most unique female character of the whole series. Plus, she competed in seventeen contests, won fourteen ribbons, collected seven Pokemon, and fully evolved three. How is she at number 9?

9 Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

Lol, God is lower than misty, ash, and brock. What has happened to society

are you serious arceus hatched mew for breakfast he could fight giratina, dialga, palkia all at once

This is a complete disgrace! You had ONE JOB Gamefreak! This does not look like a god. It looks like a goat or llama that got stuck in a fence! I think it is overrated.

Cool Cool Cool. But I have to admit, he looks a little scary. I am more of a cute, cuddly and fluffy Pokemon lover and this Arceus fellow dose not fit any of those categories. However, in tough battles he looks like the story that would stay by your side till the end. Any Pokemon who is loyal to his trainer is my friend.

10 Dawn Dawn is a character from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. In the games diamond, pearl, and platinum version she was one of the playable characters you can choose from. She will be an assistant for professor Rowan if you choose her male counterpart, Lucas. ...read more.

Dawn is the best character. She is the only travel buddy ash had a TRUE regular friendship with, like, she cheers him on in gym battles, gives him loads of High fives, and is really friendly.

Still having a huge crush on her. And naming my buddy pokemon as dawn

What? Only at 63? Dawn is the best, cutest, funniest, sexiest, cartoon character EVER! I wish she was real. Every day I imagine we date and make out. It breaks my heart knowing she is not real! :(

I love her and her Piplup. Thanks for returning to the show, Dawn!

The Newcomers

She runs a Wooper pond

The Contenders

11 Red Red is a Pokémon Trainer from Pallet Town, Kanto. He is the first character to be playable in the Pokémon series and his initial appearance is set in the Generation I main games. He has since then made various appearances in Pokémon media, including the Generation III remakes of Red, Green, Blue, ...read more.

Why in mews name is ash above red?! Ash has friends with him all the time and yet still can't beat the elite 4. Also ash can some reason only hold 10 pokemon at once cause the rest "have to train". However red is the pokemon master. He defeated the whole team rocket at ten years old, meanwhile ash can't beat 3 of them at 21 years old. Red is truly the best character I mean look up "boss" in a dictionary and you'll see red. Look upretard you'll see ash.

Ash is a looser he can't defeats only 3 team rocket but red crushes the whole team rocket group and smashes elite four and he is the champion of Pokemon.

I adore Red, not gonna say he's the best above all tough, that is a matter of opinion.

Also, laugh out loud at Satoshi's haters.

Red is the best looking character of Pokemon. I bet he can beat any other character without even opening his eyes!

12 James

Everyone likes james. If you don't like james your lying get out of my face.

Seriously, who doesn't love this guy? He Is so ADORABLE!

James! Such a sick character, one of his best quotes 'No one's carried me since my mama! '

He is literally the best, and his and Jessie's relationship is one of the highlights of the series.

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

Eevee can evolve into 7 other different types of Pokemon, each with different stats depending on their types. It's also SUPER cute but has some pretty average attacks.

Eevee can evolve into one of seven different types, he/she is adorable in any form and makes an awesome fighter and friend

Eevee can evolve to 7 characters and people doesn't know his/her gender that is what makes people expect him trying to think about his gender.

Eevee is amassing Pokemon to have and ha eevee can do all that, how about when eevee didn't evolved at all and bet elate four and the champion.

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

My first starter and once she evolves and gains the ground-type component can take out Infernape any day, plus she has a great move set for a basic pokemon.

I got him and was like "Aw, look at the adorable little turtle-thingy! " Once he became a Torterra, he was ownage!

I love turtwig! I lost the card I had to it, but I know I have it somewhere.

My first ever time I played Pokemon my first starter was turtwig

15 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 ...read more.

Hell yes people if you watched indigo league then you will know what I'm talking about

Mess with this pokemon and when it evolves you'll regret it

Magikarp is undoubtedly the best pokemon ever existed. The gamers usually judge a pokemon by it's movepool and power with it's design made by the game designer but magikarp is a simple pokemon if trained the right way can kill arceus!

Magikarp is "THE BOMB" it's so cool! Have you seen it's shiny form it's gold which must mean it is valuable. It will SPLASH in your blood!

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

Nidoking is great and everything, but where is NINETALES?! Ninetales is this crazy wicked firefox with mystical tails!

I like this pokemon because it can take down most enimes and because I has spikes and because it has a cool nickname nidoking

In the earlier series he has a deeper voice but later in the anime he has a higher pitched vocie

DUDE don't GO THERE WITH YO STUIP GUYS THAT YOU CLAIM TO BE GOOD CAUSE THEY SUCK!

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

Dragonite is strong and can learn some very powerful moves. Also dragonite was from the early games

Dragonite is strong and very likeable, but I think Charizard is better and more powerful. Still, dragonite is one of my favorite Pokemon.

Dragonite will always be in my team when I need to battle trainers online, he's always been my all time favorite Pokemon so far! That is, unless another Pokemon tops it, but Dragonite will always be the best in my book.

Dragonite is a legendary Pokemon that should fly above Charizard on this list. Its big atackes have other Pokemon begging for mercy. It has such good atackes like calming winds and dragon stamp.

18 Bulbasaur Bulbasaur, known in Japan as Fushigidane, is the first Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

My favourite Pokemon. He is number 1 on the pokedex for a reason. He is the only starter Pokemon to be 2 types in his first form (poison and grass) so he gets my vote. If you love bulbasaur vote for him.

I love bulbasaur! At first in the anime when ash first met him he didn't trust ash and I liked his attitude! He's cute and even though he's not to strong in the Pokemon cards I don't really care.

Bulbasaurs the best. He is part dinosaur, part plant. What other Pokemon is like that? He is easy to raise and he is brave. I think he should at least be number 3

If He Evolves To Venusaur He is Very Powerful

19 Lapras

I have a lapras on my team and it is my favorite pokemon. It can learn awesome moves and it is a ice type one of my favorite types in all of pokemon.

Lapras is nice and funny and playful

How is this low sheer and very powerful sheer is a one hit ko! Lapras is amazing and nobody doesn't know that!

The best water/ice type... NU doesn't cut it. At least OU.

20 Piplup Piplup, known in Japan as Pochama, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

My first starter pokemon and my piplup owned the first gym leader... Well all of them

Piplup is water type and I like it. The gym leader has a prinplup and piplup evolves into prinplup the gym leader in pastoria city.

Piplup is the best one he's cute and awesome fun and crazy and he's a penguin

Piplup is so cute he was my first ever Pokemon and he is my favorite

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

You can't get better than a ' metal dino

Dialga. Is the most powerful pokemon catch him and use roar of time and you will understand why he should be at #1

Dialga is my fave legendary it deserves higher

I like this pokemon character because he can take down most pokemon

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

This is by far the best character of Pokemon it's really underrated though just like shadow bonnie and shadow freddy.

Vaporeon rocks, definitely the best pokemon, especially since theres no episode where Vaporeon lost.

Vaporeon is awesome! I have one on my game at level 40, and I got it at level 5. It only fainted like 4 times while I was training it, which is amazing!

Vaporeon is cute, strong, and from the original. Who could possibly hate it? They say it looks weird, but I think it looks epic!

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

Arcanine is awesome because of his agility and power

Arcanine is awesome. With Extremespeed and learning two of my three favourite moves (crunch and flamethrower, only missing Earthquake. ) Arcanine has awesome speed and well rounded stats, too.

When it is angry, it is almost unstoppable.

I love arcanine if it was real when I'm mad or happy or sad or scared I WOULD JUST HUG ITS FLUFFINESS! *Ahem* And when I'm scared it will protect me and when I'm cold it will keep me warm.

24 Mudkip Mudkip, known in Japan as Mizugorou, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Truly the best pokemon ever. stupid pikachu noobs

Mudkip is my first stater Pokemon EVER

Even if it's not legendary, it's very cute! Imagine him dancing! Isn't it cute!

Mudkip is my favorite pokemon. It's also the cutest pokemon ever. It's so cute, my first pokemon, I love it so much

25 Sylveon Sylveon, known in Japan as Nymphia, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

If ribbons are a girls best friend then this should be a female trainers ideal partner

I rally like Sylveon it is a cute and kind pokemon which every pokemon trainer who is a girl can have

I love sylveon's attacks and its cute bows

My god daughter thinks that sylveon really cute and I do too.
