Most Difficult Boss Battles in the Pokemon Video Games


The Top Ten

1 Ghetsis Ghetsis Harmonia, or simply Ghetsis, is the main antagonist in Pokemon Black and White and the direct sequels, as well as the adoptive father of N, Concordia, and Athea.

Hard battle set to the beat of ominous drum beats and Latin chanting.

His Cofagrigus can easily stall you to death with a hugely amazing combination of toxic, defenses, and protect. And then there is his Hydreigon. Who pretty much outspeeds all of my Pokemon and has the coverage in order to easily be able to easily one shot them/ - HeavyDonkeyKong

Hydriegon kills mostly everything with focus blast and electross has no weakness and the only reason I beat this guy for one of my runs of black and white first try was thanks to my sheer force darmanitan

When I played Pokémon Black, I hated fighting Ghetsis. You fought him after N, allegedly making you the champion, but no, Ghetsis just has to intervene for no reason! Thank god for my Embroar.

2 Cynthia

She is the only champion that actually needs a well balanced team

Cynthia is hard but there are other fights that are much harder than she is. - Rue

She is just so stupidly hard to fight

Every single Pokemon on her team is extremely dangerous. literally all of them. her Garchomp will haunt me forever. That thing is a hacker. How is it so darn good at scoring Dragon Rush flinches? The only way to remedy him is to have a strong special attacker who has ice beam and then also outspeeds him.

Also, at the time, her Spiritomb literally had literally no sorts of weaknesses whatsoever. - HeavyDonkeyKong

3 Totem Mimikyu

I played Pokemon Sun first and he Always outspeeds me and one shots me with Play Rough. His ally pokemon always outspeed me and put me to sleep with Hypnosis. the only reason why I beat him on my very first try was because I always spammed revives during the battle. But well for whatever reason, he was much easier for me when I played Moon and I am really not very sure why though. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Not that hard, actually. I just used my Mimikyu to fight back. I don't see the big deal.

4 Whitney

Drinking milk to heal. - GehennaTheSecond

Everybody knows the story of her overly terrifying Miltank. in my opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong

5 Darkrai (Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2) Darkrai, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Cresselia goes down in history as the biggest waste of time in the history of Pokemon companions. - HeavyDonkeyKong

I love Darkrai! And Darkrai is so annoying to beat!

6 Claire

She was awful in crystal. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Her Kingdra was, at the time, only weak to Dragon Type Moves. Which I never had at that very moment in the Video Game. Ever. - HeavyDonkeyKong

7 Greevil

He is the biggest jerk in video games

NO! STOP! this is the longest video game boss battle, even longer than that ugly absolute virtue!

Greevil makes Ghetsis fight look like a joke. If anyone played Pokemon : Gale of Darkness, they know what I'm talking about. - Rue

8 Evice

Only hard due to how most of the available shadow pokemon are mediocre or hard to purify - Murphdog405

9 Elesa

Her Emolga's Volt Switch Spam was horrifying in my opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Her sequel battles aren't that difficult, but the prequel versions... hope you like those two Emolgas. c: - Swellow

10 Ardos

The Newcomers

? Spenser

Not being able to choose which moves your pokemon will use really makes this battle entirely luck based like most of the other Fronter attractions - Murphdog405

? Morty

4th gym and he has a Gengar that will likely outspeed your team - Murphdog405

The Contenders

11 Juan
12 Lenora

For whatever reasons Normal Type gym LEaders have always been able to be giving me among the most trouble. Her Watchog was irritating as hell and while her Herdier was not quite as bad I hated her Herdier too. - HeavyDonkeyKong


13 Fantina
14 Primal Dialga

Dialga and dark matter( in my opinion ) are the most difficult
Dialga sits there spamming roar of time
And dark matter had over 1000 hp

This took me weeks or even MONTHS just to beat this boss. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Dialga Used Roar Of Time!

This is what made me quit pmd for a couple of months r.i.p - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
