Top 10 Hardest Pokemon Battles in Pokemon Games

The Top Ten

1 Ghetsis (Pokemon Black/White) 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.

Better have kept that legendary dragon...your gonna need it lots here

I lost to him multiple times. I had to keep on training my Pokemon until I could come back to N's Castle to finally finish him off. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

One of the reasons why Black and White is an awesome game. - Friendshipper11

Level 54 Hydreigon, enough said.

2 Cynthia (Pokemon DPPt)

Took me half an hour to beat her. She is the most difficult champion I have ever faced, but also the best.

Cynthia has to be the hardest and the best champion ever! , she is so tough

Better have a good team composition, At least all pokes level 65-70 and wish to god that she doesn't use all of her max potions on her damn garchomp. Have fun with the Milotic... One of the hardest Champions and trainer of all time with a decent moveset for an NPC.

I agree, I had many tries to beat her and I failed. Luckily, I noticed that I defeated her Garchomp with TM that I still had and I used it for Empoleon, and that was "Ice Beam". I guess water types DO manage to let you win and progress the game.

3 Ultra Necrozma (Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon)

1. He is level 60. Your team will probably be level 38-50

2. All his moves do more than 100 damage

3. Even with graveler or incinaroar, he will find one shot move/ super effective move

4. Photon Gyser.

5. YOU can't CATCH HIM

I honestly only beat him because of my event shiny Dialga

Hell naw. Ultra Necrozma is already boosted and then gets an extra totem boost? If you don't have nay Steel types you're finished.

Me And My Sister Got Destroyed By This While My Brother Beat It with A Togedemaru

Although I managed 1st time I only won because I had heard that it was so difficult so I put my zoroark on my team disguised as a hawlucha and spammed scary face to quickly get rid of it

4 Greevil (Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness)

Greevil is without a doubt, the hardest battle in Pokemon history. His entire team are shadow Pokemon. Good luck cause you're going to need it!

This guy deserves to be number 1! I really like this battle but it is without a doubt, the hardest battle in all of Pokemon!

He is so very jerk and jerk boss when he is the hard boss easily!

That Shadow Pokemon Doe!

5 Professor Kukui (Pokemon Sun and Moon) Professor Kukui is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. He is a Pokémon Professor from the Alola region, as well as the founder of Alola's Pokémon League.

He's got a powerful team and it took me multiple times to beat him. And for those who say he's easy for a champion, he isn't even a champion! He's just a normal professor who thinks it's too easy just beating the elite four. I beat the rest of the Elite four first try but I had to redo like 3-6 times!

It was hard, but I did the mother of all pokemon challenges, beating the game without trading!

Honestly I had more trouble with Olivia (Elite Four Version) than Kukui, I think he is worthy of being the "Champion Boss" but honestly compared to all other champs maybe Iris is only weaker than her

Am I the only one who didn't have a hard time with Professor Kukui as everyone else did? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

6 Trainer Red (Pokemon GSC/HGSS/Sun and Moon)

I was in the lower seventies but still managed. His sets were terrible. I would have curbstonped hi. Had it not been for the level difference to be honest. I only barely won though because of the level difference though in my opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Very fun challenge

7 Evice (Pokemon Colosseum)
8 Anabel (Pokemon Emerald and Pokemon Sun and Moon)

Build a team just for this, or spam healing items as hell. And oh yeah, save before you fight her.

My childhood nightmare! - Friendshipper11

9 Kecleon (Pokemon Mystery Dungeon)

It's like the shopkeepers from The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. You steal from them, and they murder you. Justice prevails, I guess.

This thing -- is almost invincible to any of my Pokemon. Just screw Kecleon. Can't they just make so that if you have no money, and try to take an item from Kecleon shops, he gives to you for free? Then again, this thing is simply one word: UNFAIR!

Pokemon's version of the fight with Sans the Skeleton. Get Dunked On! - SocialMediaStinks

10 Hapu (Pokemon Sun and Moon)

Her dang mudsale and it's stamina ability. Also, High Horsepower. - benpiano800

She was it took me 14 times to defeat her because of her hard flygon super hard mudsale

That gastrodon takes a million years to beat

The Contenders

11 Lusamine (Pokemon Sun and Moon) Lusamine is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. She is the head of the Aether Foundation.

Lusamine is a terrible boss. Even with Prismarine/Decidueye she is a OP boss with way too many Fairy Types. Overall rating: Definitely nerf-time.

God, her Mother Beast form is overpowered! I wasn't able to take down that Clefable until that thing used Metronome and it got the move Self-Destruct to use on itself! But it was kind of funny when that Self-Destruct missed my Alolan Raichu that I was battling with due to the bonds that I have had with it as a Trainer. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Yes, Lusamine is the hardest battle!

This is an awesome boss fight, perfect mix of hard and fun. The Clefable was pretty annoying but seriously, I wish I could refight her.

12 Eldes (Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness)
13 Whitney (Pokemon GSC and HGSS)

Rollout rollout rollout... me: yay I'm so close! milkdrink me:y though

14 Ardos (Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness)
15 Lucian (Pokemon DDPt)

Hardest E4 member to ever exist in my opinion. Period in my opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong

16 Jaun (Pokemon Emerald)

That Kingdra. - LedgerDraven

17 Clair (Pokemon GSC and HGSS)

You want to hear my hatred for this battle in one single word? "Kingdra". - HeavyDonkeyKong

Juan's Kingdra from Emerald is even worse to be honest, and that's saying a LOT. - LedgerDraven

Harder than Whitney!

She makes Whitney look like a piece of cake by comparison. - LedgerDraven

18 Norman (Pokemon Emerald)

That Slaking. Oh my gosh that Slaking. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Slaking is super hard and yeah

19 Steven (Pokemon RSE)

Harder in the remakes because his Metagross can Mega Evolve. - benpiano800

I did find difficulty with him in ORAS to be honest. But in emerald he was insanely hard though lolol. Never played the original Ruby and sapphire though lolol. - HeavyDonkeyKong

20 Lance (Pokemon GSC and HGSS)

Lance is only hard if you are new to Pokemon and are not sure what you are doing. Which is a lot of kids back in gen 2 where it was still new. With experience, his difficulty is lacking. - Rue

Nah. I brought ice beam and thunderbolt. Without it he would likt be very bard though lolol. - HeavyDonkeyKong

21 Totem Mimikyu (Pokemon Sun and Moon)

Aside from Mimikyu being hard to take down, I find it hilarious that people used their Z-move on the first turn to try and one shot it just to realize that Mimikyu has the disguise ability. - Rue

Sadly, I was dumb enough to use my Z move on the first turn, still beat it first try though. Seriously? How is this even hard?

22 Totem Marowak (Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon)

I swear to God, they made this fight as hard as it is as a subtle reference or something

23 Lenora (Pokemon Black and White)

Herdier is NAD. Watchog is worse. - HeavyDonkeyKong

24 Lt. Surge (Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf Green) Lt. Surge is a fictional character in the Pokémon series and the Gym Leader of Vermillion City who specializes in electric type Pokémon, in the anime he's extremely arrogant, aggressive and refers to other trainers as babies for not meeting his qualities his main Pokémon is Raichu who he evolved ...read more.

STOP. THE EVASION. PLEASE. - Rue

25 Champion Iris (Pokemon Black and White 2)
26 Trainer Blue (Pokemon Sun and Moon)
27 May (Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire) 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.

Ugh, I had to lose to her, even after trying to defeat her, I tried! Not counting the 3DS remake (because she's easier to beat, which I LIKE! ). I hate her a LOT because of several reasons! Oh well.

28 Brawly (Pokemon Emerald)

Brawly was so hard in Pokemon Emerald that I made sure I was 100% prepared to fight him in ORAS. Turns out they nerved him to all hell. It felt...underwhelming. - Rue

29 Elesa (Pokemon Black and White)

EFF those emolgas in my opinion lolol. - HeavyDonkeyKong

30 Champion Blue (Pokemon RBY)
31 Nanu (Pokemon Sun and Moon)
32 Sabrina (Pokemon RBY)
33 Caitlin (Pokemon BW/BW2)
34 Grimsley (Pokemon BW/BW2)
35 Marshal (Pokemon BW/BW2)
36 Benga (Black2/white2)

Hard as always

37 Juan (Pokemon Emerald)

His Kingdra is even worse than Clair's!

38 Flannery (Pokemon Emerald) Flannery, known as Asuna in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo.
39 Morty (Pokemon GSC and HGSS)
40 Miror B (Pokémon Colloseum)

Annoying and a ton of Ludicolos. Hard to battle, especially as early as you need to battle him the first time. Your shadow Pokémon, espeon, and umbreon don't stand much of a chance. - ReturnOfScorpio
