Best Water Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 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 ...read more.

Isn't it funny that the most weakest Pokemon evolves into this horrible and powerful monster

Gyrados kicks ass because it learns earthquake which can kill it double weakness against electric and it can learn ice type moves plus it has a super high attack stat

Gyarodos is awesome. We all say that to our favorite water types, don't we? But what we need is proof. Uh huh, listen to this, supreme court!

Abilities
-Intimidate - Lowers down attack stat, and in some cases attack itself
-Moxie - Each time you beat someone up with Gyarados, free extra attack power
-Hidden ability - Hidden ability, well, its hidden, so I really can't say much, but usually when you say hidden ability, it usually pretty cool.
-Frighten - Reduces speed
-Tenacity - Contact causes Flinch

Attack
Attack? Do I need to say that Gyarados kicks butt when you already know that? It is renowned to be a mass havoc creator.
Is a flying type, so major advantage. Capable of using Fire Fang, Ice Fang and Thunder Fang.
Learns Thrash at beginning, and Bite too. Dragon Rage (Level 23) gives massive leverage against opponents, in which some opponents will not know, since Gyarados is not a Dragon type, so, you can say 'surprise! '
Bite and Crunch get ...more

Gyarados the most powerful non legendary water and flying pokemon is so aggressive that it have the power to defeat a gigantic wailord it have very good stats and moves like hydro pump,earthquake,and hyper beam my favourite water and flying pokemon.

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

When something is perfect... Its perfect. You have a giant Tortoise with mechanical water pressurized cannons located within its shell to cause serious damage while behind a castle wall defense. Train his both his defenses give him left overs. Get him with Iron Defense, Aqua Ring, Toxic and Rapid Spin (or Surf) and just see how far you get with him Pvp... The only reason they didn't make Blastoise a Steel Type in Gen 2 Was cause he'd just be too Overpowered and we all know it.

And when the opponent taunt you lol. How would he be over powered, if he has no great stats

Its because of its cannons
Blastoise can use hydro cannon and hydro launcher that is very strong even in fire type Pokemons

Its RAPID SPIN can flew away nuisance HP decliner moves like LEECH SEED, WRAP, SPIKES and others. Then add its good body figure, stocky with two highly accurate cannons!

he's very powerful and he's very cool guns make him look brave,I like his style

3 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 ...read more.

Greninja is way better than Blastoise. Mat block is this man's signiture move. It provides protection for your whole team (mostly in triple and double battles) which allows you to lay traps such as toxic spikes and stealth rock.
This also has the best ability in the game. Protean. Instant STAB, which means it gets an extra 50% power for attacking. It also confuses the opponent.
Last but not least is its speed. It is the fastest water type there is (I think...). This allows it to hit fast and hard.
Overall, if you add everything up, you will understand why it is the best. Blastoise may be the best Pokemon anime wise, but Greninja is the best competitively. It also has cool looks.

Ultamite stealth pokemon that has very quik attacks. The design looks amazing and would make a great ally.

Greninja is the best starter pokemon I can think of, plus it also has a battle bond which causes it to change into Ash-Greninja which can also match powers of any mega evolution. Rating if ask me? 10/10!

Greniga should be number one it is the strongest non legendary water type

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

Swampert has the highest base stat total of all starter Pokemon (so far). It has a secondary ground type, which totally eliminates one of Water-type's weaknesses, the Ground type. It only has ONE weakness, Grass, although it is a 4 times damage increase. Swampert makes up for this by being able to learn Ice type attacks, such as Ice Beam, Ice Punch, Avalanche, and Blizzard. It has a rather low Speed stat, which benefits in learning Avalanche. I think Swampert should be at the top of this list, because it looks cool, has amazing stats, learns great moves, and has only one weakness. Pokémon Sapphire was my first Pokemon game I was truly interested in, and Mudkip was my first starter (named him Nimbus). He led me all the way to the end of Pokémon Sapphire, and beating that game ignited my interest in playing all of the Pokémon games.

What type can honestly beat Swampert? Any grass-type Pokemon will get man-handled by ice moves. Swampert can take care of any Pokemon it battles with the right sec of moves.

I would like it more if it's mega was cooler but the thing has no neck and I bet it does not know what leg day is.

Swampert: my first Pokemon game was Pokemon Emerald so I was wondering which starter to choose. My brother said to choose Torchic, but I ditched that idea and chose Mudkip, the coolest looking out of all of them (sorry bro). Swampert is the powerhouse of all starters. Solid stats and fair defense makes it a nightmare to stand up against in a battle. My first Swampert new Earthquake, Surf, Toxic and Rest. Rest saved my butt in the Elite Four because I stocked up on a ton of Chesto Berries. When I battled with my friends, Toxic would always be the deciding factor. Pokemon that are immune to Toxic? I think EQ and Surf can take care of that. My first starter, and by far, my first tank in Pokemon

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

Obviously, Empoleon is the only water and steel type Pokemon, and knows many powerful moves. I bet it can beat any Pokemon in battles. Empoleon trainers like me can beat the champion any time!

He looks like a king penguin with a trident on his head, which looks AWESOME!

All hail Empoleon king of the penguins he is good and really strong.

I'm a trainer who specializes in water types and I've used every pokemon in the top 10 on this list and empoleon even being considered against these pokemon is an insult to empoleon. Empoleon is the greatest pokemon EVER. That means it is better than arceus mewtwo and all those other legendaries. It is water-steel type that has ELEVEN RESISTANCES AND ONLY THREE WEAKNESSES. And good stats that let it destroy anything that is foolish enough to stand in its way. Empoleon is the best pokemon ever.

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

Vaporeon is the best I use vaporeon as my bulky water type in my water dance team. Not only can vaporeon take multiple hits but also has few weaknesses and is not very affected by grass knot. In my opinion VAPOREON IS THE BOMB!

Vaporeon is underrated whoever doesn't vote for it has never lived life

I admit, I chose Bulbasaur over Squirtle back in the days when I played the first three version of Fire, Water and Grass. But when I stumble an Eevee which can evolve into one of the three tier of evolutions.

I decided to change it into Vaporeon to make up for not choosing Blastoise and I'm glad to do so. Cause Mega-Blastoise, too much. New kick ass appearance COOL. Over-all base stat NOT COOL. I mean if everyone is gonna choose either Blastoise or Garyados for the Mega evolutions in a long run, other water Pokemon isn't so watery anymore and that's just sad.

But what am I talking about?! This is Vaporeon, a water cat like that jets with bubbles! I LIKE IT! :) With Hp stat start on 130 similar to Lapras which a true contender to Vaporeon itself. I can respect both of them cause of the reasonable movepool and it's fantastic yet cute cuddly designs. And let's not forget the anime.

The only reason I chose Vaporeon over Lapras is that Lapras unfortunately have 4 type ...more

Vaporeon versus gyrados...hm lets see, vaporeon would win because it can sink into the water. And plus, vaporeon is more agile so gyrados's moves would have missed vaporeon every time! So this Pokemon is so underrated!

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

When I was 10 this was my fav pokemon, I had a lv 100, I used to see if I could beat the entire elite 4 with just this one pokemon. Ahhh good memories.

Totodile was my first Jhoto pokemon and though I'm a fire fan, I was converted to water after my baby (grown Feraligatr at level 70) was able to take on the entire Elite 4 + the Champion ALL BY HIMSELF. This was in the first Silver version, and after beating them once with a team I tested his strength...and he surprised me. Took them on like it was nothing! I only had to heal him once, and that was because I was paranoid.
He beat them several more times after that.
His moves were Bite, Slash, Surf and Ice Punch.
Today he is still my favorite pokemon, though I have too many candidates for a perfect team now lol

My best combination for this scaly beast is Rage and Dragon Tail and my favorite STAB for this is Surf I really want my scaly monster a mega and Crunch is perfect for lowering defense and perfect ice move is Ice Beam

Feraligatr was my fist Johto starter AND is my fave Pokemon of all time! It really helped me out with Claire's stoopid dragon with ice fang. It DESERVES a mega evolution!

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

I saw milotic's stats and ITS ALMOST AS STRONG AS GYRADOS this is just not fair

THE GUY WHOSE MAKING THE LIST MUST HAVE BEEN ASLEEP.
MILOTIC ALMOST BEATS THIS MEWTWO IDOIT

This is should be no number one all you need is ice beam hydro pump solar beam (I think) and anything else and it evolves from one of the most weakest useless fish so this pokemon definitely deserves to be in top 3 at least

Milotic would be #1 if people were actually capable of catching it. It is extremely rare and it's first evolution sucks. However, when you evolve it (which is a difficult task whichever game you play) it is one of the most powerful Pokemon I have ever owned. I beat the whole elite four with Milotic in my Emerald game. She can learn ice beam which eliminates it's grass weakness and her special ability ups her defense in suffering (aka when they hit you with thunderbolt it doesn't even kill it.) one of the finest additions Pokemon ever made to the game in my opinion and should be #1 I hate blastoise.

9 Lapras

Lapras is a great pokemon:

Let's start with the ability.
- Water Absorb gives Lapras an immunity to Water.
- Hydration with kill status problem with a Rain Dance.
- Shell Armor means NO critical hits, what-so-ever.

Now, the attacks.

- Sing is a starter move, which gives you an upper hand on attacks.
- It learns TONS of Special moves, and Stab adds to this.
- Perish Song kills both pokemon, Lapras and the foe. Though, if you use it wisely, the ove is really beneficial.
- Sheer Cold is a One Hit KO move, which is good.

Breeding.
- Breeding Lapras with a Stunfish will teach the baby Lapras Fissure. Train it up high and it learns Sheer Cold. There's two One Hit KO moves.
- Lapras learns some Dragon moves as well.
- Lapras can also learn a Psychic move, along with Sleep Talk and/or Curse (Ghost Type).

TM's.
- Lapras has the ability to learn Thunder and Thunderbolt. When battling a water leader and use a Lapras with Water ...more

One of my personal favorite pokemon. Awesome design, awesome moves and alright stats.

LAPRAS KICKS ASS! WHY THE HELL IS HE SIXTH! LAPRAS SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE PEOPLE, AND WHERE THE HELL IS FERALIGATR!

Lapras is ' wicked! I know they're supposed to be peaceful, but if they need to fight they're super strong. They're also a great source of transportation! Go Lapras!

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

Wish they gave it a boost to its special attack and attack, it would be a beast with that

Excellent dual STABs in Waterfall and Outrage coupled with Dragon Dance make Kingdra a top threat capable of sweeping unprepared teams. Kingdra's excellent defensive typing, along with its deceptively bulky stats, allow it to take strong special hits and Dragon Dance with a comfortable amount of HP remaining. Suicune and Starmie, two excellent checks to other Dragon-types, usually hope to bait Outrage, only to find themselves unable to stop Kingdra from setting up two or three Dragon Dances, then Rest and restore itself to full health thanks to Chesto Berry. Chesto Berry will not cure anything but sleep, so Pokemon relying on Will-O-Wisp or Toxic might think that they have beaten or crippled Kingdra, only to find they have given it an opportunity to gain more boosts before healing off status with Rest. With its boosted Waterfall, Kingdra is able to beat many Pokemon without locking itself into Outrage, and becomes very difficult to stop if the opponent no longer has a defensive wall ...more

Kingdra is cool mainly because he is water and dragon type. The fact that he is water type makes him much less weak against ice types - who are normally best against dragon types. This makes his only weakness dragon. However, because he is dragon type, he can fight off his own weakness, and further more, he is a water type which allows him to learn ice type moves - which are also good against dragon types.

Kingdra and Pilkia are only weak to dragon only and Kingdra and Pilkia are both Dragon type so Kingdra can beat all water pokemon apart from Pilkia but this can use in the Battle Subway while Pilkia can't. Kingdra might not have high defense or special defense but YYAAWWNN can't make pokemon sleepy zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz then Kingdra finish them off.

The Newcomers

? Dracovish

In Pokemon Sword Shield this fish boi has good speed he is a very good choice for Gen 8

If you train your dracovish's stats right and have the right ability and moveset, this beastly boy will one shot anything.

? Inteleon

The best starter he has a GUN! What is cooler than a GUN

I think its one L but I'm not sure. I still love this new Pokemon

It is OP

Finger guns
Enough said

The Contenders

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

This guy should be number two. Primal Kyogre should be number one!

LISTEN BHAI, KYOGRE SHOULD BE ON TOP, IT'S A LEGENDARY POKEMON! THE WAY YOU'VE WRITTEN THE LIST IS ONLY FOR NON LEGENDARY POKEMON!

Killer special attack, plus drizzle, its STAB hydro pump smashes anything that doesn't resist it really hard. Add choice specs, and it's unmatched in the category of H20 Pokemon. Have no idea why it's languishing at 8th spot.

He is LEGENDARY!He should be first best, not Gyarados.What is wrong with you people!?!?

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

Samurott is a brilliant attacker because of swords Dance
Razor Shell

Samurott isn't that bad. You all don't realize it but he's the best water type starter. He's got spec attack almost like charizard and attack that makes charizard cry(please don't hate me charizard. I love you). Plus decent hp and mediocre defenses. He's worth using.

Really? Way down here? Samurott is the best water type starter. With it great spat and at it can be a mixed sweeper. Teaching it swords dance would further make him beast. Even Blastoise's defends wouldn't keep him down.

Samurott is what got me into Pokemon, and it's design is off the charts amazing, better then the turtle in the first region (I still like blastoise, don't worry) It has the body of a legendary, and it the best starter of them all. It's stats are great too, and Oshawott is so cute. No on can hate Samurott

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

It should be in 1st position it is a super legendary Pokémon . It can kill that gyarados and blastoise in a second.
- ARCEUS

The only reason I voted Palkia is because It is one of the creation trio.

I give my vote to Palkia. I assume that Palkia should be Psychic/Dragon. You guys might know me. I did say my second sentence in the best steel type votes. I gave my vote to Dialga. You guys can find me on that page. I could not write much about Palkia then because it was about Steel types. I love Palkia by the way!

By looking to base stats, Palkia is actually MUCH stronger then Dialga, and seeing that Blastoise is No. 1? Okay, put a, let's say level 70 Palkia with a level 72 Blastoise, Palkia would win, because of hydro pump.

14 Suicune Suicune is a legendary Pokemon that’s a pure water type that first appeared in Pokemon gold and silver, and was the cover legendary for crystal. Ho oh revived this Pokemon (along with entei & raikou) when it died when it’s home, the burned tower got destroyed by a fire that was started by a lightning ...read more.

He's an awesome legendary that you could use if you have an awful team.

Suicune is my all time favorite pokemon ever it is very strong and very beautiful and usually never lose battles with suicune

It has high special defense and defense and just looks sweet

suicune is great and cool its very strong for your team

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

Get in he is stronger than Lugia, Primal Kyogre, Golisopod, Mega Blastoise, Golduck, Ludicolo and Pimarina

Piplup is the most cutest and most friendliest penguin you would know because I love penguins and other Pokemon but piplup you're the best

Penguins. Oh wait? You expected more? Well, just Empoleon's Water Steel can wreck Fire Types, and Steel can deal with Poison Types.

Piplup is my absolute favorite Pokemon! He is so adorable and fairly powerful for a baby evolution. I loved him so much that I actually went as him for Halloween in 1st grade. Piplup is awesome, and I am so sad that he is so late on this list. He should be #1!

16 Wailord Wailord, known in Japan as Whaloh, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It is a Water Type Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It is the tallest known Pokémon at 47 feet and 7 inches or 14.5 meters tall. Despite being this large it weighs only 877.4 pounds or 398 ...read more.

He's the tallest known pokemon! He should at least be in the top 10 just for that!

I like wailord because of its hp which is so much and also the attacks damaged which is pretty strong. It's also because the move. One of the move was water spout which is perfect to Wailord. It's also unique and the largest Pokemon. Wailord also can learn dive, bounce, and hydro pump without any TM or HM.

I am the one who said "WAILORD IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE TOP 5, IF NOT, AT-LEAST TOP 7! "

I forgot to point out he has the HIGHEST health base stat of all Water Pokemon.

Wailord is the best

17 Sharpedo

Sharpedo is awesome mega evolved now it scares me now even more lol:(

Sharpedo is the best water pokemon in my opinion

All I have to say is this Pokemon fast

He can have speed boost ability

18 Azumarill

Azumarill. The second-best Physical Water-type (behind Swampert, obviously...) is now a Fairy. This makes him better. Play Rough and Waterfall, with Huge Power and Belly Drum, if you beat this with a Grass/Steel type, that would be very impressive. Brick Break takes those down, by the way! No Electric types can stand up to this, so this shouldn't be at 16.

I can't believe you people! I'm not trying to be mean, but have you guys ever used this beast?! In the remakes of omega ruby alpha sapphire, this guy is a destroyer! With the fairy typing he/she can wipe out the dragon type elite four member! BEAST!

This thing is cute and amazing in battle. more beautiful than gardivuer and milotic

Gen 6 really made this thing powerful. With fairy/water STAB along with HUGE POWER! Makes for a super OP aqua jetting beast.

19 Dewott

Dewott can learn water, ice, and fighting type moves

It's oshawott form evolver.. Is cool

GO DEWOTT! He ROCKS! I have a level 21 Dewott and he crushes if Dewott is this good I can't wait until it evolves into Samourott!

Go Dewott I have a level 22 dewott and I defeated the bug gym with him that's how much he rocks

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

Oshawott is my little bro's favorite and my bf's sister's favorite. He is really cool. However, I don't like him in the anime. Kinda like a mermaid, in a way.

It's so cute and strong at the same time and evolves into one of the strongest water type Pokémon EVER

Poor Oshawott he needs more atention than this. come on he's cute, clumsy, and funny but go ahead laugh it up beacause when he's a freiken Samurott he will tear you to shreds with its beast powers

I bet that Oshawott will prove to be Ash number 1 Pokemon in Unova. He is so devoted towards ash that on his saying him cute he came with him. That's the true sign of a trustworthy Pokemon.

21 Squirtle Squirtle, known in Japan as Zenigame, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

My best friends favorite. Very cliche, but I agree with him. He is cute

A wonderful , cute and powerful Pokémon which is better then Totodile and is very much superior then mudkip.
- ARCEUS

Best Pokemon its awesome squirtle is one cute tough cookie

Squirtle is awesome and so cute he should be number 1!

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

I NEVER KNOW KELDEO WAS A WATER TYPE! I love Keldeo and he is one of my favorite Legendary Pokémon! I mean he is cute and powerful, what else do you need?

Keldeo-R has 129 sp. Attack and 109 speed. So, it's fast and hits hard. It also has very powerful attacks in secret sword and surf. Hidden Power Ice or icy wind can stop grass types in their tracks. Finally, it can buff itself with calm mind. This alone at level 100 can beat the entire elite four of black and white 2 on its own.

Keldeo is awesome! He's so great you can only get him through a distribution event! Plus he has a cool move that makes him look like a unicorn!

He is a unicorn! He kicks ass

23 Crawdaunt

Adaptability with aqua jet and muscle band. yeah that's what I thought

Don't forget crab hammer. Power of 100 and physical. Death on crab legs.

This Pokemons epic if you look at it up close and basic Pokemon corphish is so cute

Well crawdaunt is best
Pokemon so its cool to have crawdaunt

Looks great

24 Ludicolo

don't know. I whatch,09sharkboy and it took him a long time to beat this stupid creature

Giga Drain + Rain Dance + (any move) + (any move) + Rain Dish/Swift Swim = Perfect Speedy Drainer or Annoying Drainer But yea, it is a Pokemon who can knock out the weakness to Fire and Grass

Epic learns double team listen fool it should be first don't believe me talk to wallace

Double typing make it have a little advantage over other water types

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

Kingler has a really high attack, good defense, and a cool move set. The only reason he should not be in the top five is because of his health... He has really low health. If that were different he might be one of the top Pokemon in general.

He can snap a big boulder with his thingis at the end of his arm.

Why is this Pokemon down here? They are the best water attack Pokemon. Kingler + The best water move (Surf) is OP.

I like how it looks and it is a strong Pokemon in Pokemon battle arena inferno, and plus it's the best.
