Most Powerful Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 Arceus Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

(Ok, I'm voting for Arceus as the #1 Pokemon in the game; not cards, not anything else)

For one, its stats are (literally) the best you ever see on a Pokemon, being very well balanced, and it EASILY outclasses any Pokemon here.

It's ability to change types can make it almost undefeatable. For example, give it a dark plate and suddenly Mewtwo doesn't look that good.

The last thing I'd like to mention is that it's signature move is not only EXTREMELY powerful, but it also will always get STAB because its type matches Arceus' type.

End of my rant.

How could mewtwo be first!?!? Arceus created the universe, which should prove he's the the most powerful! Mewtwo was created ina factory, out of one of mew's species bones, which also proves that Mew should be more powerful. Since Arceus created the universe, he also planed the creation of mewtwo, but he wouldn't make a pokemon more powerful than him! Arceus made mewtwo weaker than him, so mewtwo couldn't beat him. Anyways, how could you vote for mewtwo!? He's really greedy...

Arceus is best book for mew two even new can defeat mew two mew two is ugly greedy Pokemon arceus made the world new two is just a piece of ant for arceus for who saying that mew two is strongest change it just watch arceus movie you will know that arceus is the best even palkia can defeat that new two I hate new two because he's greedy and bad new can defeat mew two

I think Arceus is the most powerful pokemon because it's a legendary Pokemon

2 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

Hands down, Mewtwo is the strongest. Created for the sole reason to be the strongest and to kill them all. Modified pokemon and human dna mixed together into perfection. The only reason he hasn't destroyed the world is obvious: then there would be no more pokemon franchise left for other games. Mewtwo can blast your mind into hell and you will not even notice. Your soul is then tortured for eternity in its own hell realm. Pretty scary. He is also invincible with his psychic shield, his iq has to be pretty high and with that I mean even all super computers in the world connected to each other would be a mere fly against his computing capacity. He can make hurricanes with his mind. He is evil. He only thinks of fighting. He can mind control your best friends and turn them against you if he wants to. He can clone hiw own army (which he would not even need, he does it just for fun).

None of Arceus' stats are excellent. They're all above average, but Mewtwo's Special Attack and Speed stats are excellent, and it has strong enough moves to one or two shot any plate Arceus. Dark plate, meet Aura Sphere. Ghost plate, meet Shadow Ball. Bug plate, meet Flamethrower. The only Pokemon that has a chance at stopping Mewtwo is Attack Form Deoxys, and that's only because it's crazy fast and hits ridiculously hard. But if Mewtwo survives, Deoxys goes bye-bye and then Mewtwo continues obliterating everything in its path.

In my opinion mewtwo is the strongest pokemon as it was created by humans in order to be the most powerful pokemon. So MEWTWO CAN BEAT THEM ALL! Only mew would stand against mewtwo. In addition mewtwo can read your mind and predict its opponent next move and although arceus created all other pokemon it didn't create mewtwo. Finally a big part of fans of mewtwo votes go to mew so mewtwo and mew should be combined in the list.

Mewtwo is weak against bug type pokemon.

3 Mew Mew Mew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

Mew is easily the strongest Pokemon in existence. In the battle against MewTwo, Mew wasn't even trying! MewTwo was going ALL OUT against Mew, while Mew was casually negating EVERYTHING MewTwo threw at him! Mew was NEVER even pushed in that fight, and was at LEAST equal with MewTwo, going tit-for-tat with everything MewTwo did, except... unlike MewTwo... Mew wasn't trying, he was just having fun. This strongly implies that IF Mew actually wanted to... HE WOULD HULK SMASH MewTwo into the dirt! Also, unlike MewTwo... Mew can turn into ANY Pokemon (except for MewTwo), giving him an infinite amount of variability advantage over MewTwo, and can therefore exploit psychic-type weaknesses of dark/ghost attacks, and send MewTwo into a dirt nap! The ONLY Pokemon that MIGHT be able to defeat the original Mew is Arceus, but maybe NOT... since, all evidence suggests that Mew could turn into Arceus! It's also noteworthy to notice that Arceus cannot turn into Mew! The fact that Arceus can use any ...more

Mew has been able to fight evenly with Mewtwo, but has never really gone all out like it was seen with Mewtwo trying to beat him. Mew has also been shown to be the first Pokemon as it has the DNA of all known Pokemon and was shown at the top of the family tree of Pokemon in movie eight. He can transform into any Pokemon and is capable of performing any attack making Arceus' ability to change types ineffective against him, both abilities which Mewtwo is unable to perform as he is a clone and only his psychic abilities were emphasized and enhanced. Mew has also not been shown any limits and only became weak once when the tree of beginning was dying.

Well at some episode that is, I think never made it on screen or abandoned, Professor Oak, Ash and so is Pikachu of course, encountered Mew And Mewtwo. They Battled, and guess what who won... Mew! Prof. Oak Also Said that that is why Mew has the more chance to win his fight against Mewtwo. Ash and the group thought that Mew might lost the fight... but they were wrong. mewtwo has like killed mew and teleported him to another dimension and can't get out. but, when mewtwo was distracted, mew again appeared and pulled mewtwo that is paralyzed by mew then mewtwo died. And Mew is so cute and cuddly but can learn any moves. (except Draco meteor, etc. ) #TeamMew - smosh_and_pokemon_lover

Mew is the best because of its abilities!

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

In the anime I don't really think that Lugia could actually beat Arceus in the anime. But still, Lugia is one of my favorite Pokemon and it probably can beat Giratina in the anime. Lugia will probably have a tough battle though, while he still could take him down considering he knew ice beam.

Lugia is both strong and beautiful. It can win any battle--if trained well-- with its powerful moves.

Lucia would stand a chance against giratina because water beats dark and ghost types

Lugia should be in the top 5 for sure

5 Rayquaza Rayquaza Rayquaza is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It lives in the ozone layer, and frequently stops battles with Kyogre and Groudon, two other Legendaries.

Rayquaza is a BEAST. Plus, in the wiki, it says Kyogre and Ground on are two of the strongest pokemon, and Rayquaza is the one who quells their argument, thus Rayquaza is powerful. I mean look at him. Besides the no teeth part, Rayquaza looks awesome, and they made it so for a reason.

could use killer moves like draco meteor, focus punch and other moves that arceus could sometimes not know

Rayquaza is a beast. It should by number one because it's mega base stat is tied for the base stat of all pokemon. It can also mega evolve without a mega stone so you can have an item on it.

It is a best powerful ghost pokemon

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

GUYS ARE U STUPID he can just go back in time and kill any pokemon

Umm... I don't now what he/she looks like but it sounds awesome!

He is well cool

7 Ditto Ditto Ditto is a character from Pokemon. It's a normal type Pokemon that has the ability to shape shifter into anything. It's weakness is fighting type Pokemon and is a gender less Pokemon.

It can transform into anything, In my opinion it's the most powerful if it was to fight to a pokemon it can just transform to the weakness of the other. People are voting for the other ones but ditto can transform into them. If I was a pokemon trainer which I'll never be considering it doesn't exist, I would pick Ditto it will make it barely possible to defeat and I don't have to capture any other pokemon

Ditto is everything. Not only can it transform into any Pokemon - it can transform into anything it wants, organic and non-organic things alike. Any Pokemon on this list? Ditto can become them. It can become whatever kind of Pokemon theyr'e weak against. It can become - theoretically - anything that exists. The moon, the Earth, Arceus, etc.

An organized army of Dittoes could take over the planet if they wanted - so could a lot of Pokemon, I guess. But the difference is that Dittoes could do it without anyone ever noticing. It could replace your family and your friends without you realizing it. Eventually, a Ditto could replace you. They could replace us all.

Unless... They already have.


If you think about it ditto can transform into ANYTHING even mewtwo to escape being attacked he can transform into a NON LIVING OBJECT there fore ditto is the most powerful Pokemon

Tatta pokemon

8 Giratina Giratina Giratina is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Giratina first appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, but gained prominence in the sister game, Pokémon Platinum, which it was made the mascot of.

Giratina may be kind of evil. But that doesn't mean that he isn't scary powerful. I mean come on! He got banned from our world because he can't stop destroying things with is anti matter.

I know Giratina has some power. And I think Giratina should be #3. And where's ditto he should like #5

Giratina was the first pokemon that arceus created, so he should be at least the second most powerful.

My fave Pokémon

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

Palkia is AMAZING. First of all this Pokemon was the first legendary Pokemon I caught in Pokemon Pearl. Second of all this Pokemon is, yes one of the Pokemon that can learn the most powerful move ever, Draco meteor. AND, if this matters to you in the anime movie, Arceus and the Jewel of life, palkia and dialga took on the most powerful (in my opinion) Pokemon, arceus.

She's girl idiots she's strongest water Pokemon stronger than dialga and giratina

He looks tough LOL!

The Contenders

11 Zekrom Zekrom

He is one of my favorite pokemon ever. I have caught 3 of them on pokemon black and white. ( Levels... 139, 68, and 49 )

Zekrom has a superb attack and defense stat that easily Pokemon sweep

It's cool Pokemon and like it very much

Favourite Pokémon of all time.

12 Darkrai Darkrai 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.

In the game Darkrai has a much higher speed and special attack than Arceus, it also has dark void which Darkrai can use to move first and put arceus asleep then its ability bad dreams drains a quarter of its health and on the same turn it uses nightmare to drain a further half of its health, Then Darkrai can finish it easily with a move like aura sphere while it is still sleeping meaning darkrai can defeat Arceus in 3 turns while retaining full health. And in the movies he was AMAZING even though ash and his friends scorned him he still took on diagla and palkia all by himself! In conclusion DARKRIA FOR THE WIN!

could do so a lot of damage to other pokemon like make them go to sleep

Way underrated should be number 1

2 Ways to pronounce Darkrai:
Its either Dark and Cry or
Dark and Rai (I don't know) which is dark in Japanese
So Dark-cry or Dark-rai (Dark-dark)

13 Deoxys Deoxys Deoxys is a fictional species of Pokémon from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. Deoxys has four forms, Speed form, Defence form, Attack form, and finally Normal form. Deoxys normally have fights with Rayquaza since they both live in space right outside Earth.

With speed form it can out speed any non-boosted Pokemon. In Attack form it can deal more physical and special damage then any other Pokemon in the game (Shuckle's roll-out does not count because its way to hard to pull off). And in defense form it may not have the best defenses of all but it can take a hit from almost any Pokemon and still stand. Not to mention its got an amazing move pool in all of its forms.

Deoxys should have a place in the top 3! It can change into one of its 4 forms and in the anime you can clearly see that deoxys has unbelievable power!

Deoxys is the second most powerful Pokemon only rivaled by Mewtwo.

Four forms so cool

14 Ho-Oh Ho-Oh Ho-Oh, known in Japan as Houou, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I think Ho-Oh should deserve a spot up there with Lugia. I actually thought that people liked attack type Pokemon. Lugia is a defense type and still people think it should be ranked higher than Ho-Oh. Don't you guys think that he looks majestic like Lugia? Vote for Lugia & Ho-Oh!

Ho-oh is the most powerful Pokemon and is the rarest Pokemon it was weird ash keeps seeing it

could use killer fire type moves

He is best

Grimer is actually quite a powerful Pokemon,

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

Entei is the coolest Pokemon ever because when he roars, over 10,000 volcanoes explode!

So awesome don't say he's not powerful he can hurt kyogre probably

I love this guy

If entei is here where are suicune and raikou?

17 Reshiram Reshiram

Reshiram looks awesome and Reshiram is awesome. Reshiram is so much better than Zekrom.

Yes I love reshiram

It does say that Reshiram could inflame the world. I've already got 3 Reshirams on Pokemon White2 (lvs are: 100,56, and 54) Please vote to make Reshiram higher ranked than Zekrom! I've already posted 3 times including this one (posted on: Lugia, Reshiram, and Deoxys.

Rusharam really should be at the top

Mega Gardevoir has great special attack and with calm mind this thing is a beast

Amazing pokemon!

Gardevoir is beast it can even stand up against mewtwo but will probably lose but will put him to like 1 health he destroys and can telaport to different places as shown in the anime and can destoy so many different pokemon and is basically palkia dialga and rayquaza level so it is to op for a lot of pokemon.

So hot. Dammit on fire girl. Woho sexy

20 Magikarp Magikarp Magikarp, known in Japan as Koiking is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It resembles an orange fish with whiskers. It was created by Ken Sugimori, Magikarp first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. It is a water type that evolves more.

Magikarp is easily the most powerful Pokemon. The only reason splash does no damage is because it does so much damage it resets the universe. Please vote for magikarp! He could easily bring all Pokemon to extinction if he wanted to.

Magikarp is my choice because when it evolves, it will evolve into a Gyarados, which is pretty powerful

Boasts a wide variety of moves. Stats are out of reach for any other Pokemon. A must for anyone that wants to beat every game with ease. Bonus for a shiny Magikarp.

Magikarp is op

This Pokemon is banned from all types of Pokemon battles, because it is so OP

Hoopa can make anything under its control as seen in the movie there eyes are different since they can do mind control they can take dittos witch makes them very powerful and a ditto can turn into the sun while the rest gets away easily making hoopa the strongest

Hoopa can steal ANYTHING, which means that even though it isn't the best, it could do some serious damage.

He can be very very powerful if he had overheat and a focus sash and a brand new move called "hell fire" and "Angel wings" hell be very unstoppable.

I love charizard he is my favorite pokemon and even if there's some moves he doesn't know he's still really powerful

By my thinking Unown is also more powerful

It is classified as the Destruction Pokemon. Yveltal has the ability to absorb life energy, and when its life comes to an end, it steals more.


31 Kyurem Kyurem

This poke, when you come to think of it, have both black and white form which give it a fair power behind it. Able to become both fire and electric type with dna machine-thing, it is probably the most powerful.

This the most power full Pokemon especially as a dragon type

Being a ice and dragon type it doesn't have weakness so this is the most strongest Pokemon

Kyurem has two forms. White kyurem is more powerful than Reshiram, and Black kyurem is more powerful than Zekrom. I would say it's at least as good as Giratina. FYI, it has five weaknesses: Fighting, Steel, Rock, Dragon, and now Fairy.

ABOVE zekiram and reshiram.

You can't beat lucario no matter what you do it will kill you have no chance against him riolu should be a starter he's just to awesome arceus would bow in front of him
and if you keep him in a team with Mewtwo and zoroark no Pokemon in the world would stand a chance

Jirachi is cute but deadly. The only pokemon able to use "Doom Desire" and has a third eye that is really powerfully. I believe Jirachi should be somewhere on the top ten.

This Pokemon can make wishes come true no matter what they are, and in my opinion is of the most powerful Pokemon (s) ever. It should at least be in the top four or five
