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.

It created the Pokemon world

This guy would destroy mewtwo easily. He shattered giratina, dialga and palkia without a single problem. Since he has all plates he basically is invincible, and since he can learn every attack, he is able to wipe everything from existance.

He made the pokemon world

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).

Mewtwo is the most powerful I've seen so far

Mewtwo is sexy

Mewtwo is sexy yeh

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 amazing MewTwo is only a copy of it. When they were battling you could tell Mew wasn't giving it his all. He was dodging easily and I honestly think Mew could defeat MewTwo if he wanted. Mew can also transform into any pokemon. That's amazing! There have also been theories saying Mew can also transform into Arceus so I think Mew deserves to be in the top. He is definitely underrated. Plus, JUST LOOK AT HOW CUTE HE IS LOL!

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 should be 1 for most power full and cutest

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.

4 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.

Most games says rayquaza is better then mew and mewtwo so why is mew and mewtwo better then this godly guy or she

Why is Rayquaza not near the top 3? It is a powerhouse, it has good defences and is fast. SO OP. When it Mega Evolves it goes from godly to so powerful that Smogon created a new tier, AG that stands for Anything Goes because they thought that Mega Rayquaza was too powerful for the Uber tier, which is a tier for very powerful Pokémon. Also, it's shiny is really cool.

Basically man he fly like noodles and he fly flast

It is a best powerful ghost pokemon

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

Ditto should be #1, at least tied one with Arceus, or #2 because he can turn into Arceus. In a battle between (Ditto) Arceus vs Arceus, no one would win, but Ditto could easily defeat every other pokemon by turning into Arceus, so he basically is the best other than Arceus since they would be the same thing, but the thing that makes Ditto #2 is that Arceus actually created the pokemon world, Ditto did not, he could only turn into the creator, he is not the real thing. But at most, Ditto is #2 or tied at #1

Maby a bit to strong...

Ditto can turn into any Pokemon

Ditto is the best

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

Lugia should be in the top 5 for sure

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

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

He is the controller of time. He was able to calm arceus by changing history. If he wants he can change anything.

Favorite Pokemon deserves number 1 place + it controls time!
Beat that arceus!

My favourite Pokemon!

not really strong but Roar of Time could do serious damage to other 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 is so dope that everything that is real is not real

Very power ful

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

9 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!

could use killer fire type moves

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

I thinks ho-oh is powerful than lugia

10 Grimer Grimer

Grimer is actually quite a powerful Pokemon,

He evolves into the kummeister

plop

Grimer will KILL!

The Contenders

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

He isn't that strong but he is still one of my favorites

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

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

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

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.

He looks tough LOL!

13 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?

14 Gardevoir Gardevoir Gardevoir is a third-generation Pokémon species originally introduced as a Psychic type creature in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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.

She is awesome!

15 Mega Rayquaza Mega Rayquaza

Yo this should be the #1 because it is literally the most op Pokemon but the bigger question should be WHY IS IT UNDER MAGICARP

It has very own tier

Magikarp is love. Magikarp is life.

Magikarp can do anything and kill anything. Beats Arceus easily.

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.

He flops so much he easily butt slaps enemy's as well as dodging attacks from his flops

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

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.

I have a card of him and he is awesome

Watch the movie point made

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

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

Actually arceus is more powerful than charizard x. the stats are the same, except arceus has higher health

He can one shot most pokemon

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

Rusharam really should be at the top

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.

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

Gordon is Groudon! Should be higher

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

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.

He should be near zekrom and reshiram

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

Zygarde is the second strongest because once zygarde reaches zygarde 100% it is said that because he's the guardian of the ecosystem he will restore order to the world and rule but Arceus could still stop it.

Because he my favourite Pokemon and that why I like that Pokemon

Stronger than Xerneas and Yyveltal combined! Number 1!

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

so strong could beat 3 regis

Strongest Pokemon in the world you can not out class him in strenght he is the pulled the continents together what other proof do you need to call him strong

Regigigas is really awesome but my best is regi steel

37 Tyranitar Tyranitar Tyranitar, known in Japan as Bangiras, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

If you see mega tyranitar you will say sorry if you said he sucks number two he can learn outrage when you get it from egg. He or her attack stats are terrifying because he/her max stats for attack are 403 that is just like man who will stand a chance. Correct my mistake people if I'm wrong.

38 Shedinja Shedinja

This pokemon is just absolute BEAST, it cannot be hit by any pokemon except for super-effective moves, which give it a edge against many pokemons which can't use fire, rock, dark, ghost, and flying type moves!

You have pikachu listed as one of the most powerful Pokémon but pikachu evolves into Raichu. Also, pikachu is usually judged by how cute he is and no one ever thinks about how powerful he is. But Raichu is all the cuteness you need and is way more powerful

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
