Hardest Pokemon Bosses

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Draipon (Pokemon Ranger 2)

If you chose crogunk as your partner, you are screwed. You can't get off the ship ship to change your partner, so you have to restart the game :( took me a long time, but while, but I finally got it

I had to restart my game in order to beat him because I chose Crogunk as my partner. I went back with a different partner and beat him, but was still super hard. This boss is the hardest pokemon boss I’ve ever faced myself in a game for me!

I chose croagunk. Drapion was an absolute pain! 😱��"�

22 Totem Lurantis (S/M)

This pokemon is way too broken. It has Solar Blade along with Power Herb from the start. It can immediately attack with basically a physical Solarbeam once it uses it. Not only that it has Synthesis to restore its health. Its allies also causes pain in the neck. Trumbeak with Rock Blast kills fire types and flying types, which you definitely need in order to beat. Castform uses Sunny Day, which allows 2/3 of its health to be restore and immediately charges its Solar Blade... This Pokemon should never be underestimated.

It took what seemed like an eternity just to defeat that overgrown mantis with a kimono! It's definitely the worst Totem Pokemon battle of all time. - PerfectImpulseX

This really should be at least in the top 10. - PerfectImpulseX

It's easy if U bring Salandit since he has 4X resistance 2 grass. Also easy if U have Gastly/Haunter/Gengar and U use the curse against the Lurantis and bring lots of revives and potions because it will take damage every turn. Also the Lurantis will eventually run out of synthesis meaning the curse will murder him. That's how I beat him. - POKEGAMERZ

24 Iris (Pokemon Black 2/White 2) Iris (Pokemon Black 2/White 2) Iris is from the Pokemon bwhite version & Pokemon black 2 & white. She ether was the gym leader in Opelucid city in white version. She first appeared to aid Bianca, Burgh, and the playable character when Bianca's Munna was stolen, & acted as a bodyguard. In Black 2 & White 2, she was the champion. Iris ...read more.

Definitely had EV trained Pokemon. She apparently had a Lapras! What the hell is wrong with that? Oh yeah! Lapras is an ice type!

Lapras for crying out loud!
She had LAPRAS!

25 Greevil (XD: Gale of Darkness)

Fighting him whilst having to catch ALL SIX of his team is a nightmare. All the Pokemon are strong. They are Rhydon, Exeggutor, Tauros, MOLTRES, ARTICUNO AND ZAPDOS. All of them also have high catch rates, especially the birds, so you will need LOTS of Pokeballs. Also, if you score a critical hit, you may accidentally KO one.

For those who are unfamiliar with, the goal of the game is to catch all the Pokemon your opponent has that are Shadow Pokemon (in Greevil's case, all 6). These Pokemon also have special attacks that deal super-effective damage to all non-Shadow Pokemon - they will hit any Pokemon you use hard with the exception of other Shadow Pokemon. I strongly recommend not purifying all your Shadow Pokemon before this match else your entire team will be KOed quickly (especially Salamence - could have not won without it! )

And if you want to use the Master Ball on them, that means no Master Ball for Shadow Lugia. And any damage you take against Lugia gets carried ...more

Speedster did a countdown on the hardest Pokemon battles and this was number 1, and let's just say he made a pretty good point. I think you should check it out and he also talks about why Whitney isn't as hard as we all say. I'm voting for this until it's number one. What are you guys even talking about for the number one choice, and in another list, Speedster also explains why the battle with Red isn't as great as we all think it is.

Have to catch 3 legendary birds, all with equal catch rates to lugia! Not only that but also 3 other difficult Pokemon to catch as well! And even if you don't catch them all their attacks are super effective.

All of his Pokémon are shadow. ALL SIX OF THEM, meaning shadow Pokémon are super effective against you (Unless you Pokémon are show too, most likely the Salamence you just caught, and to add icing to the cake, YOU HAVE TO CATCH ALL SIX OF GREEVIL'S POKÉMON, which is easier said than done. His shadow Rhydon shadow Meme (an Exeggutor) and shadow Tauros aren't too bad, but get this: HE HAS ALL THREE OF THE LEGENDARY BIRDS WITH THE EXTREMELY LOW CATCH RATES. This Guy has kicked my butt so many times. This list is rigged! Greevil should be number 1.

26 Lysandre (X and Y)

Gyarados will give you hell every time. He's got a great theme, though.

That Mega Gyarados of his is absolute HELL to fight. Not to mention Mienshao with Fake Out. Great theme, though.

All of Lysandre Pokemon were easy with my team of Charizard, Greninja, Yveltal, Talonflame, Diggersby, and Pikachu

Torterra is a boss!

28 Flannery (Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald)

In ORAS, her torkoal was way too powerful, even if you're using a Pokemon that resists fire.

30 Cyrus (Pokemon Platinum)

Cyrus has a lot of tricks in his team of 5 fully evolved pokemon, including heat wave on honchkrow for steel types, thunder fang on houndoom for water types and earthquake on gyarados for slower electric types. He doesn't mess around.

How is this not in the top 10? Cyrus is a killer, especially in nuzlockes with his beastly earthquake gyrados and heat wave honchkrow. I found this fight significantly harder than Cynthia, Crasher wake, and even Fantina in my most recent nuzlocke of platinum.

31 Darkrai (Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2) Darkrai (Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2) Darkrai is a legendary Pokemon developed by Game Freak. The only way to get this Pokemon was through two events, only one in the United States.

Okay, I agree that Dialga was REALLY hard to beat. Fortunately, I was a Mudkip and learned endeavor, so when he tried to pulverize me with Roar of Time, I used Endeavor and Turtwig delivered the final blow. But Darkrai... I made it to him two years ago and still haven't beat him. Of course I don't play the game 24/7, but still. He has a team consisting of a lot of ghost and dark types, and that really hits Cresselia hard. She's almost ALWAYS the one who faints (due to her suckish moves and type disadvantage. *Sigh*
I just need to beat him before I beat the entire game.

32 Zekrom (Pokemon Park 2) Zekrom (Pokemon Park 2)

Gave me absolute hell

33 Phoebe (Pokemon RSE)

So hard, at least on oras.

34 Champion Iris (Pokemon Black and White 2)
35 Palmer (HG/SS)

This guy is just ANNOYING! First match he has a dragonite, a rhyperior and a annoying milotic. Second match he has a heatran, regigigas and cresselia. I didn't even get there.

36 Benga (Black2/White2)

Who was this again?

He uses legendaries and pseudo-legendaries that are highleveled

37 Olympia (X and Y) Olympia (X and Y)

It took me more tries to beat her than it took me to beat the champion! But that's psychic for you.

Easy as hell couldn't find an easier battle.

X and Y may have been hard, but Olympia was the hardest of the hell known as Kalos.

Pokemon Y being my first game, and all that, I remember a little about the game.
Gym 1: 3 tries

Even though I was a noob I managed to beat the gym.

38 Wally (Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire)

Walle from ORAS has IV bred, EV training, Hidden ability Pokemon with items. In other words, it is like playing a competitive match. So hard!

39 Arceus (Pokemon Ranger Guardian Signs) Arceus (Pokemon Ranger Guardian Signs) Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

Honestly I think the reason this boss wasn't even on the list is because nobody has ever made it to it. You need to beat every temple in the past and then before you even fight arceus you need to capture every Pokemon in the temple and it's all under a VERY strict time limit. It's the only Pokemon boss I've ever fought that I've not managed to beat to this day and I doubt I ever will


40 Shadow Mewtwo (Pokken Tournament)

3000 HP. A Burst Attack that will one shot you. Anything else to say?
