Top Ten Generation 7 Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Primarina Primarina

It's no surprise that a starter of my favourite type would be my favourite starter in the series. A tremendous typing, both offensively and defensively, beautiful design, great stats (including the highest base stat of any non-mega starters) and fantastic in the story, though I don't like it as much as a certain other beautiful Water type, it certainly takes the spot as my favourite starter and Gen 7 Pokemon.

I will admit that the other two starters are good but this thing is a beast I swept the first to elite four members with it. (It was about ten levels higher but still) this thing is beast. I bet the grass type starter with it! Plus fairy has never been used on a starter before and fairy is very good against dragon one of the best types in my opinion

Perfect in every way, one of the best starter designs, amazing typing, and would be the queen in a party of princess pokemon! Definitely needs more attention in the anime, how 'bout give it to the one trainer who ends up beating Ash in the league?

Only Gen 7 Pokemon that can OHKO Ultra Necrozma.

2 Decidueye Decidueye

Best grass starter design wise. No offense to sceptile but Decidueye has a more cool thing going for it. Hope Ash gets one in the anime so we can see more of it.

I can't put into details how cool this pokemon is. It always shadow sneaks me to victory in the main games and acrobatics my opponents way in pokemon. This pokemon is what I wanted in a grass starter pokemon for generations. I hope Ash's Rowlet evolves so I can see animated.

My favourite starter beside Charizard!

Best designed final stage starter...ever

3 Incineroar Incineroar

Am I the only one who loves Incineroar the most out of the three final starter evolutionary stages? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

So much better in competitive, so much better in the anime, so great in the design

You're not the only one, bro... Incineroar is my favourite Starter for all the gens

It’s super Cool kills decidueye in one flame thrower or flare blitz dope Pokémon must be in#1 or #2

4 Solgaleo Solgaleo Solgaleo is a dual Psychic/Steel Legendary Pokèmon introduced in Generation VII. It evolves from Cosmoem when leveled up in Pokemon Sun starting at level 53.It is one of Cosmog's final forms,the other being Lunala. Solgaleo takes a special form called the Radiant Sun phase when it uses Sunsteel strikes. more.

Looks so cool and is op as well

Solgaleo is probably better than Lunala and for good reason. Solgaleo can resist many attacks, over ten types, actually. Sure, he has four weaknesses, but Lunala has two weaknesses...that are 4X damage to it, while Solgaleo's weaknesses is just 2X. The fire weakness doesn't make sense, but whatevs. And it's signature move is powerful. If you're planning on getting a Gen 7 game, I suggest Sun because of this legendary. - VincentWeir

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

I've loved litten ever since my friend told me about the trailer of the starters all those months ago when info was starting to get released about the pokemon. He was like "There's a fire cat." I got super hyped and watched the trailer. I adore Litten and its evolutions, but my favourite has to be alolan exeggutor; it's the epitome of beauty. - Wolftail

Such a cool and stylish looking cat! I've always loved him and it's impossible to not see why. He is just so awesome

Once a Litten chooser, always a Litten chooser! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This is one of my favorite pokemon! don't get me wrong! I just hate it's final evolution, some nacho libre rival cat guy thing - BLAZEDAFOX

6 Mimikyu Mimikyu

Probably the best ghost Pokemon ever made, and is very strong in competitive battling.

Mimikyu is probably the best pokemon in a long while. It's great in battle and has a great design. - HunterRYC

Overrated. Overshadows other good gen 7 Pokemon

Hands down best designed Pokémon ever. Ya I just said that. The Pokémon is so lonely it builds off of the popularity of Pikachu. It is like all of those bootleg Pokémon games. They just want to be loved.

7 Silvally Silvally

Diet Arceus, enough said.

Never heard of it but sounds awesome

Basically arceus

Its really cool

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

How is this possible!? Lunala is OP!

So OP and moongeist beam is a good attack - Lunala


Despite it’s 4x weaknesses to ghost and dark, Lunala is a beast. I have always loved night and bats, and purple has always been my favorite color. And bam! A purple moon bat! Lunala can learn so many good moves. It can get rid of those pesky dark types with moonblast, get STAB with the already powerful moongeist beam, heal from roost or moonlight, the list goes on!

9 Lycanroc (Midnight) Lycanroc (Midnight)

I MUST HAVE THE MIDNIGHT FORM OF LYCANROC (although Midday Form is also pretty cool as well). - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Midday form is cool too but a bit overrate. Midnight form is my favourite lycanroc - Lunala

Ewww! lycanroc Midnight it's trash.85 hp 115 Attack 75 defense 55 Sp.Atk 75 Sp.Def 82 Speed.Crap stats but no guard is still amazing with thunder fang and stone edge.But it's in the same tier as Misdrevis that's sad.:'(

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

He's the cutest starter ever! And evolves to Decidueye, by far my favorite Pokemon of this gen. - cjWriter1997

Surprised to see Rowlet below fifth and some of the most popular Pokemon worldwide lower down than they should be...

Still, Rowlet is an adorable Pokemon and It'll always stay as my favourite Pokemon.

The Contenders

11 Golisopod Golisopod

Absolute BEAST

First impression sucker punch is very good.
Even though it's low speed it has a lot of good priority

Caught one of these in animal crossing!
"EEK! That's a nightmare if ever I saw one! " - BLAZEDAFOX

Golisopod is super good with this moveset
-sucker punch
-swords dance
-leech life
-razor shell

12 Gumshoos Gumshoos

I wish it knew Trump Card - Lunala

Gumshoos will make Alola great again

Gumshoos will make Alola great again. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Gumshoos is so OP. Best Pokemon ever besides Decidueye and Lunala. He looks so cool and is so powerful. He has made Pokemon greater than ever

13 Pheromosa Pheromosa Pheromosa is a dual-type Bug/Fighting Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It is one of the Ultra Beasts and is known by the code name UB-02 Beauty.
14 Popplio Popplio Popplio, known in Japan as Ashimari, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

My 2nd favorite Pokemon ever! only behind eevee

My favorite Pokémon. I seriously don't know why people don't like it.

15 Kartana Kartana Kartana is a dual-type Grass/Steel Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It is one of the Ultra Beasts and is known by the code name UB-04 Blade.

Isn't Kartana an Ultra Beast? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

What about araquinid but katana is cool - TENTACRUEL

Yes but where is araquinid - TENTACRUEL

16 Type: Null Type: Null
17 Mudsdale Mudsdale
18 Alolan Raichu Alolan Raichu

Based on the Pikachu in the original series of Anime (not Ash's) - PokemonGOSucks

My favorite of the Alolan formes - PerfectImpulseX

Surfs up bros

So cute - 1507563

19 Toucannon Toucannon

Fruit loops

Toucannon is probably a more powerful Pokémon you should get. It looks cool and it's signature move, Beak Blast, is very useful in battles because it can give opponents a Burn and can deal a good amount of damage. This Pokémon is a must-get. - VincentWeir

20 Tapu Koko Tapu Koko

My 7th favorite pokemon

21 Vikavolt Vikavolt


22 Buzzwole Buzzwole Buzzwole is a dual-type Bug/Fighting Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It is one of the Ultra Beasts and is known by the code name UB-02 Absorption.

Okay, I'm confused now. I thought Buzzwole was supposed to be an Ultra Beast. So are Ultra Beasts supposed to actually be Pokemon from a different dimension or something? Because I heard Ultra Beasts aren't classified as Pokemon. Although, I haven't really gotten far into the game yet to uncover the mysteries of the Ultra Beasts. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Looks like a comic book character.

Looks like a character from Spongebob

It's going to beat someone up. - PokemonGOSucks

23 Cutiefly Cutiefly

I had always thought of it as an EH, but, I do think it is quite cute, and I like its evolution, Riombee.

24 Torracat Torracat

Just had my Litten evolve into a Torracat last night! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

25 Wishiwashi Wishiwashi

This pokemon is great. Starts off as runt fish and then bulks up in school form to a tank submarine fish! School form can kick arse.


26 Alolan Persian Alolan Persian
27 Tapu Bulu Tapu Bulu
28 Ribombee Ribombee

I beat the battletree with my main pokemon as Ribombee! (He's called SassyQueen, I didn't realise he was male but he's still a queen in my eyes ) Like seriously, this thing is so blummin' amazing it's unbelievable. I gave mine leftovers and used quiver dance, like, as many times as I could, and boom, 1-hit KO with whatever move you have. I like to use pollen puff, but bug buzz is just as effective. Plus, it can out speed pretty much anything, nearly as fast as MEWTWO. Like, holy hell, that's pretty damn fast if you ask me.
AND, on top of all that, the shiny is BEAUTIFUL, and I'm very happy I have one in my collection! I would use it, but it wouldn't be as good as my SassyQueen for competitive battling.
Overall, I probably like this pokemon way too much

Oh my gosh why is Ribi so low? She is one of the fastest, she is half and half against Gala(bug fairy type)and she can take a few hits and return the favour.Overall,a solid Pokémon from when you find a cutiefly on melemele meadow.

OK,I have a solid point here so hear me out.First,she out speeds Greninja.Let me repeat that,SHE OUTSPEEDS GRENINJA! I'm not kidding! She's adorable and so is Cutiefly and Hala is a piece of cake with this bee fairy.Also,bug/fairy,not the best type but Kommo-O is a whole lot easier with her on the team.Second,she will have a good move set,Dazzling Gleam/Draining Kiss,Energy Ball/Baton Pass,Pollen Puff and whatever move you want at the end.You can sweep Gala with Ribombee! Why does this not get much praise! Shes a valid member on my team.#RibombeeRules

29 Rockruff Rockruff

What's with Gen 7 and adorable pokemon that involve into such powerful beasts. I love Rockfuff and was happy to add him to my party. - cjWriter1997

30 Turtonator Turtonator

Another Fire turtle... (though this one's bipedal) - PokemonGOSucks

31 Xurkitree Xurkitree Xurkitree is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It is one of the Ultra Beasts and is known by the code name UB-03 Lighting.

Literally the coolest ultra beast

My favorite ultra beast!

Something about Xurkitree man... it just works! That 173 Sp. Att is just ruthless

I love its running animation, design, and its name.
Why isn't this higher?

32 Tapu Lele Tapu Lele
33 Marshadow Marshadow Marshadow is a Fighting/Ghost-type Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

You can get marshadow early in pokemon sun and moon using power saves if you don't know, I really do like Marshadow though.

Cute and has some fantastic typing (Ghost/Fighting).

It's supposed to be the third legendary Pokemon next to Solgaleo and Lunala. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

34 Cosmog Cosmog Cosmog is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. The most iconic appearance of Cosmog in the Pokémon franchise is the one owned by Lillie from Pokémon Sun and Moon, nicknamed Nebby.

I actually just found out what Cosmog's evolutionary stages are on Bulbapedia. And man, was I quite surprised. I can't wait to experience it's final evolution in Sun, if you know what I mean... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Nebby get in the bag - Lunala

35 Kurkitree
36 Trumbeak Trumbeak
37 Tsareena Tsareena
38 Toxapex Toxapex

Come on this should be number 10

Supposed to be based on a Starfish - PokemonGOSucks

This thing is so strong!

39 Pikipek Pikipek
40 Necrozma Necrozma

Necrozma is 10 x better than mewtwo

A amazinging psy pokemon

This Pokémon is AMAZING! It is one of the best Pokémon In my opinion. And, he just gets better in USUM. It has 3 new forms, and Ultra Necrozma has to be the best legendary I have used in UM.

Necrozma is an awesome prismatic beast, it’s ultra form OOZES with light that burns the sky. It does a heap of all out pummeling and it’s epic.

41 Kommo-o Kommo-o

Gen 7 pokemon are alright but this man is the best

Why so low ranked?

42 Salazzle Salazzle

I saw an article recently giving a guide on how to make it easier to obtain Salazzle. Essentially, you need to have a male Eevee (and only a male Eevee. Not a female one.) evolve into Sylveon by having it learn a Fairy-type move and acquire two affection hearts. Once it evolves into Sylveon, its ability will become Cute Charm, which will prove vital to catching a female Salandit since Cute Charm helps make it more likely to catch Pokemon of the opposite gender to the Pokemon with Cute Charm (in addition, you need to make sure that male Sylveon is the lead Pokemon in your party in order for this to work). Then, you'll be on your way to evolving that female Salandit into a Salazzle very soon. Finally, any other male Pokemon other than Sylveon that has the ability Cute Charm can suffice as well for fulfilling this task. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Salazzle may be furry bait but I can't help to love this thing. I actually enjoy using it in my Pokemon Moon playthrough. Going through the trouble to find a female salandit is worth it. - Ruee

43 Mudbray Mudbray
44 Palossand Palossand

Best shiny form in game

It's just a Sandcastle-Ghoul, nothing too special. - PokemonGOSucks

45 Morelull Morelull
46 Alolan Ninetales Alolan Ninetales
47 Pyukumuku Pyukumuku

Wow, I guess that visitor was right about being able to earn $20,000 if you help chuck Pyukumuku back into the ocean. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

48 Arceus Arceus

Seriously? - JayP


Probably someone unknowledgeable of Pokémon. - PokemonGOSucks


49 Yungoos Yungoos

It's really fun for me to care for my adorable Tru- er, I mean Yungoos in Pokemon Refresh. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

No it's Donald trumps - 1507563

Mr. President! - thomwim

I think it's supposed to be based on Donald Trump.

According to Bulbapedia: “Yungoos appears to be based on a [[mongoose]], such as the [[small Asian mongoose]], which was imported to Hawaii to counter the rat problems on sugar cane plantations.”

Oh - PokemonGOSucks

50 Alolan Marowak Alolan Marowak

This Pokemon does wonders competitively. At least for me it does.
