Best Steel Pokemon

Pikatwo

The Top Ten

1 Metagross Metagross

Get it hammer arm, gyro ball, earthquake, and explosion. Get it a relaxed nature so it raises its defense and lowers its speed. It is normally slow and has a nature to make it slower. This means not only does gyro ball get STAB but it also has more effect when you are slower. You might need to use hammer arm on some enemies, but that would make you slower, which makes gyro ball even stronger. Earthquake is good for getting other steel types, and also poison types, not that either of those would be able to hurt U.steel is weak to fire, so earthquake can help with that too. Ground is super-effective on electric and rock, too. If a steel type can use magnet rise or has levitate, use hammer arm. Only use explosion in an emergency, or if you have like 20 health left. It would make you die, but also probably the opponent, and if you have 20 hp you are probably going to die soon anyways.

Arms that crush Pokemon skulls. Insane attacks that will tear bodies apart. Amazing resistances and high defenses. If this Pokemon sat next to Arceus, he would think twice before approaching our hero. A mega evolution that sweeps even the best teams. Surprising agility makes it kill faster than it's opponent. A glare that says, "Get out of my way, or I'll show you what I can do." The sanctum of steel. The maker of metal. The strength of psychic. Who is it that I am referring to? It's Metagross.

Just awesome and so much powerful. It has a base stat total of six hundred. It's speed is poor comparing to its other stats. It has a base speed of seventy. But it can learn agility to deal with its speed. Powerful in attack and defense no doubtly makes it the best steel Pokemon.

Its mega evolved form has higher base stats than lugia, palkia, or dialga. don't ask why, but this pokemon deserves 1st place

2 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 ...read more.

Aura Sphere gonna kill you all. End of story.

Lucario got voted no. 1 fighting type, so let's make him no. 1 in steel, too. Although as good as Lucario is, Metagross is going to be some competition to outrank.

All of fighting's weaknesses got canceled out by his steel side, so he's got all the weaknesses of steel and that's it.

Hey, Lucario also has the best look. I mean, doesn't it look beast how he's kneeling down and is giving you a menacing stare (that's in heart gold/soul silver)?

Let's face it: Lucario is the best.

Lucario, my favourite Pokemon, my first shiny and the one who helps me beat anything in my path! Seriously when battling against friends they always give me the death stare because they can't beat my Lucario. I always need one on my team and god that speed! That speed has won me a lot of battles... Lucario need to be top, I mean look at HIM. Obviously he need to be top.

Not only is he my favourite fighting type, but it's also my favourite steel type! He is also the top fighting types in sinnoh or maybe the only new one

Once lucario becomes mega lucario and it uses earthquake or aura sphere you are dead

3 Aggron Aggron

I have to admit that Aggron is one of the best steel types. its ability is Rock Head, There fore it cannot take recoil damage, making its use of double-edge very effective. Aggron has a great move set, being able to learn electric, fighting, rock, and dark moves as well as its base types, steel and ground. His speed isn't very high, which is why his move autotomize is good, boosting his speed stat. It is also a massive tank. its defense is so high, not even a fighting move will one shot it. It can also mega-evolve in gen 6, making it even better.

Best steel type ever... He can even beat legendaries... With many resistance and coverage of weaknesses.. He becomes unbeatable... He's the best in hoenn region... Capable of destroying the pseudo legendary Pokemon of hoenn salamence..

My aggron can literally take a stab earthquake twice and rip a hole in his foes team with head smash and iron head (which are both stabs). Add in earthquake and aqua tail and you have a force to be recond with.

THIS IS WAY BETTER THAT META GROSS AND LUCARIO!

4 Skarmory Skarmory

Great Pokemon! It is way too low though on this top ten list

Being the only flying steel Pokemon and having those types work out greatly for each other, and having a high attack defense and speed is incredibly helpful and should be higher on this list, at least past lucario

It just rocks! It has only 2 weaknesses after countering both ground and fighting moves with it's type combination. Way high defense, awsaumn look and high attack. It should be number 1 on every flying or steel type pokemon list.

Boi number one, IT'S A BIRD! Number two, even though it has a HUGE weakness to electric Skarmory's defense is OP!

5 Scizor Scizor

I have him and he is a total beast. He has been a nothing more than a powerhouse in many battles. And with only one weakness compared to the 4 that Metagross has, the three Lucario has, the three Aggron has, three for Empoleon, 2 for skarmory, 4 for excadrill, and 4 for steelix, it kind of makes me mad he's not higher on this list. He has great stats, a solid move pool and a mega evolution to boot. It's speed is massive if trained right and if you give it a decent set of moves to work with it's speed, it can even deal with fire types before they have a chance to do anything. Scizor for the win!

Scizor is really awesome. It has a good base attack stat and it looks awesome. It can also learn some powerful moves!

Why isn't. He number 1 he only has one weakness and one of the bast base attack

Scizor is literally awesome... just keep it away from fire. - Yuanlong

6 Steelix Steelix

Steelix = Super Powered Onix, I'm shocked its not higher up, its super massive and potentially super powerful, and it's the icon of what a Steel type Pokemon should be..

Steelix is AMAZING! I used him, and took out the entire Dragon Gym in Pokemon White 2 by himself. His Defense is epic, and he can definitely hold his own in any battle.

Iron tail, Earthquake than whatever you want. Ground makes fire no threat, and can't be hit by poison type moves.
A+++

7 Mawile Mawile

Why hasn't Mawile got more votes!

Mawile origin is very scary and it's to especially its mega 105 attack and huge power that doubles the Pokemon attack stat that makes it's attack stat 210 the highest attack stat of all

In my opinion I like Mawile better than mega mawile because it can be a very good physical attacker while also saving your mega slot for a even better mega such as mega gengar

Swords dance iron head sucker punch'
that's all u need

8 Magnezone Magnezone

Metagross is built for attack, but what about magnezone. Its sp. Attack is awesome plus with the right moves and items it can take one the most powerful of Pokemon. Teaching it thunder and flash cannon is a good idea because of STAB. Hyper beam is one of the most powerful special moves. If magnezone has the ability magnet pull give it a focus sash and teach it mirror coat for Pokemon who emphasis on special attack.

A special attack to rival the best of pokemon, an ability that is the nightmare of other steel types, and a decent all around tank makes Magnezone one of the best steel types in my mind.

Definitely my favorite Pokemon

Powerful and awesome

9 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 ...read more.

No, Empoleon isn't the best steel type. It's in fact the best water type, the best steel type, the best starter and the best Pokemon. It has a great defensive AND offensive typing, it can roll with any item easily, it has a great movepool and it can counter all of its weaknesses easily. Fighting types? Drill Peck. Ground types? Ice Beam, Scald, Waterfall, Surf, Hydro Pump and Grass Knot. Electric types? Earthquake. It also has great base stats.

I do think that empoleon is a really good Pokemon. On my x game I have a level 67 piplup. My problem is piplup is just so darn cute I don't want to evolve him. Empoleon's steel type gets rid of the electric weakness.

It takes care of the fire and ground type weakness of steel, and the electric weakness of water. It's awesome!

Only Water-Steel type Looks cool so yeah awesome for sinnoh team

10 Aegislash Aegislash Aegislash is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Gen 6, it is a Steel/Ghost Pokemon. It is the evolved form of Doublade, and the final evolve form of Honedge. Classified as the Royal Sword Pokemon, it is said to detect innate qualities of leadership. According to legend, anyone ...read more.

I still cannot grasp the fact that Aegislash isn't number one yet, or at least at the time of writing this. It is by far the best steel Pokemon, both defensively and offensively, as its attack AND defense match mega Metagross, yet does not take up the mega slot. It is also faster. It's signature move, kings shield, is just an enhanced protect! Not to mention its good typing.

There are so many great steel types, but aegislash takes my vote because of its great ability. Get it with swords dance or iron defense depending on how you use it, shadow sneak, iron head, and sacred sword, making it a great wall and sweeper at the same time, a force to be reckoned with, the gen 6 Pokemon really should get more credit.

This is probably one of my favorite Pokemon, It learns amazing moves, and before I knew it, it was 20 levels over everything I battled because of it's amazing level up speed. It can destroy everything with sacred sword, and if not, then he'll smash them apart with iron head. I couldn't believe how quickly the elite four got wrecked with this Pokemon. he is really one of the best.

Who doesn't love Aegislash? The fact that he has his OWN signature move, WAY BETTER THAN METAGROSS, and if you look at the stats none of the Pokemon above matches his stats!

The Contenders

11 Dialga Dialga

I think people are forgetting about Dialga. Sure there are plenty of great steel types but Dialga's raw power is what makes it automatically a uber Pokemon.

Why isn't dialga higher? IT CAN CONTROL TIME! And it's stats are awesome, both offensive land defensively. It's the second best of any pokemon ( except mewtwo) and can learn roar of time

Dialga is a beast. One thing that I like about Dialga is the type combination. It is the only Steel/Dragon in the whole franchise (#I do not know how to spell it! ). I like Dialga over Palkia and Giratina (and Arceus! ). I say that Palkia should be Psychic/Dragon but were not in a Palkia conversation. I bet Dialga should get 1st place.

Why isn't he agar number one it's a legendary Pokémon why could you not be number one it's the best steel type Pokémon ever don't ever do that again Dialga is the fifth strongest Pokémon ever acording to my research why is it not number one this is in sane

12 Jirachi Jirachi

Jirachi is probably the only steel type I know that doesn't look angry. Or looks happy.

Jirachi is best pokemon and my favourite pokemon. He can do fairy type attacks

Jirachi can also heal itself with wish. This makes for a fun combo.

Uh why is he all the way down here?
He should be one of the highest

13 Heatran Heatran

Heatren is the best Pokemon anybody could get so you should really only vote for this guy me and him beat the Pokemon league alone and we did it with nothing to heal with. and he was only at level 50 and he did not ever go on Pokemon amy or super training and I am not lying. he is insanely inecredibley strong if anybody is reading this and they like heatmor they have a heck of some taste and if you don't know what that means it means you have a really good choice.

Heatran is epic. He is also my favourite Pokemon and is really strong. #magma storm

Duh, fire immunity. Heatran is mad ugly but it deserves a top 10 tier on a steel team!

This pokemon is ultimate fairy killer, fairy attacks tickle it. that's why I love it. - Yuanlong

14 Escavalier

The only problem it has is it lacks reliable recovery. If it got horn leech or something of the sort, it would be a God

Awesome, the only problem with it is you have to trade with Shelmet to evolve it. Better than Scizor I think.

Escavalier is sucks because it's stats only 495 and no have mega evolutions...

Escavalier design wise is my favourite pokemon, but competitively, it stands (or floats) in the RU tier due to its drastically low speed stat. A great moveset would be facade, twineedle, any steel move over the power of 80 and most importantly, swords dance. I hope my vote and reason was acceptable for this reason.

15 Excadrill Excadrill

With an insane Attack stat and an awesome ability to boot, Excadrill can really tear up the battlefield. Either set up a sandstorm or get a Sand-Stream user to do it for you, it's game other. End of. On the other hand, its design screams badass.

Wow. That's almost all I have to say. My favorite steel type and ground type. Grass won't do as much, due to it being a half steel type, and it has three obvious weaknesses water, fighting, and fire, which it being a part ground type, can cover with a move like bulldoze or earthquake. And the design is amazing. I mean, who doesn't want a pokemon with two weaknesses and is Edward scizorhands?

One thing to say excadrill is awesome

Look at this guy. Now look at him again. Do u not feel l that crazy sense of power? This guy was my go yo poke when black came this is so bloody awesome!

16 Aron Aron

I just loved catching my first Aron in hoenn! I couldn't wait for it to be an aggron

Amazing, evolving into Aggron can take time but it's SO #WORTH. Aron is really cute and powerful in it's own sense too

Just because Aron one of my favorite Pokemon. And because I made list it gave some power to the order of it. Best doesn't always have to be best in battles. - Pikatwo

Keep it lv 1 and it beats everything not ghost

17 Registeel Registeel

Sure it has good defences and all, but its not that great to use. People think its amazing because a lot of people just think "Oh! It's a legend so it must be good! "

Registeel has amazing defenses and because of its pure steel type it has many resistances an immunity but only 3 weaknesses

Awesome steel type golem robot but I love thos guy

I beat a guy's Celebi,Darkrai,Kyogre,and Slaking with this lovely creature. Hooray! :D - SquirtleFan3

18 Bisharp Bisharp

A sucker punch from this guy after a swords dance is DEVASTATING, having 4 times weakness to fighting means nothing if they can't survive a single round against him. Grab defiant, and an attack increasing nature and you're all set. For moves, I liked running swords dance, iron head, sucker punch, and knock off for the utility. As for looks, he has the color scheme that I oftentimes find myself wishing other Pokemon could have.

Laugh out loud don't know whats going on with retarded Pokemon fans. Bisharp has more stats then a skarmory and yet he lands here -_- and Bisharp is more cooler looking than skarmory or lucario and sacrifices all for his attack night slash will kill anyone when powered up with sword dance he is immune to psychic and poison types. HE IS FULL OF BIGASS SHINY BLADES ALL AROUND ITS BODY

Although he has a quad weakness to fighting, he's immune to both physic AND poison. If you train him properly, his attack stat can go through the roof.

Look at that photo, he is just so savage

19 Foretress

A really great wall. My most dependable Pokemon in Pokemon colleseum. It has one weakness, fire. It learn very great competitive moves, such as spikes, toxic, explosion, earthquake and rapid Spin etc.

Stealth Rock, Rapid Spin, though I use odd things like Counter and Volt Switch on it, and it works great.

Tw shot a Mewtwo with this

20 Ferrothorn

Utility is this Pokemon's name and it can be near impossible to wear down at times. With typing that's exclusive to it's line and great defenses it already has many unique attributes and it's support movepool is one of the best there is. It's no slouch on the offense either and can dish out strong Gyro Balls and Power Whips if necessary. Steels are amazing as ever and Ferrothorn is one of the defining Pokemon's of it's typing as it constantly proves to be incredibly useful for the trainer in battle and pain for the opponent to beat.

Ferrothorn should be in the top 7 at least. It might be slow, but gyro ball makes up for its speed because lower speed makes gyro ball so OP + STAB makes it so good. Also, iron barbs is so good. When an opponent uses a move that attacks multiple times, that opponent dies if they use something like double slap.

Ferrothorn is fantastic defensively and is well supported with an attack stat above 90. His speed is terrible, but actually allows Gyro Ball to hit for 280 (also due to STAB). Overlooked but very useful!

If it has 0 speed EVs, its gyro ball is devastating to fairies. Its spiky barbs hurt, and then you can just switch in heatran when your opponent puts in a fire type, and then bam, flash fire and magma storm the crap out of your opponent's Pokemon. My best monotype steel team always includes this guy, and with leech seed+leftovers, he restores like 10% of his hp every turn. My #1 fairy killer recommended to everyone. He works as a lead too with spikes, and as if that wasn't enough, he can sweep water and ground types with power whip. Grass normally has a bunch of weaknesses, but steel is immune to poison, and strong against ice, so that helps too. Steel is amazing defensively, and grass has great sp. at, so this guy is the perfect ferro-storm. (Get it)
