Top 10 Best Non-Legendary Johto Pokemon

This is my opinion at first, feel free to vote for any Pokemon you like.

The Top Ten

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

I had a level 100 tyranitar which beat the kanto johto and
Hoenn elite four at once

I got a pupitar and evolved it and I have never had tyranitar faint at all

Yes my favorite Pokemon I could not not pick him

Best pokemon ever

2 Feraligatr Feraligatr Feraligatr, known in Japan as Ordile, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Feraligatr can destroy everything it touches. Like Heat/Freeze Miser but it's actually COOL. Obviously the best starter if the three, freezing grass and putting out fire. Teach it Surf for fire ground and rock, Super Power for Metal, Ice, and Dark, Ice Beam for Flying, Ground again, rock again, and Dragon, and teach it Earthquake for electric types. enough Said

Love for water types. Simply amazing!

My starter every time! Love this dude

From my experience, Feraligatr is probably one of the best fast physical sweepers you can get next to Pokemon like Crobat, and Garchomp. This Pokemon not only has BEASTLY stats, but it also has a vast movepool, which allows it to easily wipe through every Pokemon type. If you give this Pokemon a Life-Orb, nothing will be able to stand in its way. Simply put, Feraligatr is a badass Alligator, that can Ice-Punch and Earthquake it's way through anything. I would highly recommend it as a starter.

3 Crobat Crobat

He is awesome the speed the move pool although not great as a zubat or Golbat crobat makes up for these two it's the cherry on top to end it all

Crobat, in my opinion, beats them all. Amazingly fast speed, good design, nice moves.. It has a lot going for it-- terribly underrated.

Not an easy one to evolve and weak when caught, but a solid choice. High stats, insanely fast and will leave your opponent confused (literally) - BlazikenBro

All you need to get this thing is a poke ball, a cave, and love. Now look at it it is a total beast.

4 Typhlosion Typhlosion Typhlosion, known in Japan as Bakphoon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It can get the best of three johto gyms, so if they ever make a second remake aka a third version, this will definitely be the heart of my team!

And no I'm not saying in every pokemon game my starter is the heart, for example in my Ultra Sun game play, even though I did love m FEMALE primarina, I definitely have more affection to my hariyama (no rlly now that I have completed the game all I do is spend time with him in pokemon refresh). Oh and by the way I'm sorry for getting off topic, but in conclusion how could such an adorable little creature become such an awesome creature?

Op this Pokémon is super underrated

Its awesome and is the best agisnst the gyms

Best Starter ever, second to none NONE not even the Not-Alligator-Alligator.

5 Espeon Espeon

A great designed psychic type with a great moves such as: Shadow ball,Psychic,Dazzling gleam and Hyper beam. Perfection chose this for special attack

She is a great psychic type

How is he number five! he's da best eeveelution

I love Psychic types and it is a real powerhouse, plus it has a variety of attacks.

6 Scizor Scizor

Scizor is insane just swords dance and bullet punch

Favorite pokemon of all time. Fantastic typing, great abilities and moveset. RAD

The only downside to scizor is that you need to trade it to evolve, and fire will destroy it. However, its speed is not to be taken lightly, and its move pool is amazing. Plus its design is just awesome and it has a mega!

Scizor is still awesome though!

7 Ampharos Ampharos Ampharos is an Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II . It evolves from Flaaffy starting at level 30 . It is the final form of Mareep . It can Mega Evolve into Mega Ampharos using the Ampharosite, in which it becomes an Electric/Dragon-type .



This is my all-time favourite Pokémon, hands down. My first time running through SoulSilver when I was a total noob, my Ampharos saved me about fifty times.

This beast can kick elite 4 in their balls any day. # far better than typholsion

8 Houndoom Houndoom

To the one who thinks Houndoom is fire/steel, it's fire/dark you idiot

Its he best typing and it gets great moves

Houndoom is very powerful indeed.

Fire/Steel... Literally a Fire type can wreck that easily.

9 Lanturn Lanturn

An absolute unit. Had one is Hoenn and needed one in johto. Sweet babeyy

This thing is unstopable

Lanturn with volt absorb is better than ampharos. That's it

It is literally the cutest thing ever

10 Kingdra Kingdra

Water/Dragon is a great combo because of Dragon and Fairy only being effected against it. Plus it knows Flash Cannon to prevent Fairy types and things like Hydro Pump, Hyper Beam, Dragon Pulse, Giga Impact and Draco Meteor which takes care of the Dragon problem easily.

My friend literally beat the ENTIRE Elite Four with just one Kingdra. Seriously powerful, balanced stats, not to be taken as a joke. - BlazikenBro

Kingdra really is good, especially with its typing of water/dragon. It makes it really hard to get the type advantage over it, and dragon pokémon are also harder to find, so if you're fighting one a lot of the time you just have to power through.

The Contenders

11 Heracross Heracross


It is one of the ash most powerful Pokemon. It looks like a beetle.Heracross had been defeated pundir robot

He Looks Cool

It can use Mega Horn, with stab! It can easily battle psychic types with it and with practicals no other good Pokemon to fight psychic types at the time ( The dark type was new, so the only good dark Pokemon was Umbreon ) I'm surprised it's not higher.

12 Porygon2 Porygon2

First off this little duck is awesome

Poor underrated Tri-duck science experiment thingy...

13 Bidoof Bidoof

The actual god in Pokemon

Bidoof is weak and its from gen 4 not gen 2

Most powerful pokemon ever, don't even evolve it

Best pokemon in all gens to be honest. Even better than legendaries.

14 Dragonite Dragonite Dragonite, known in Japan as Kairyu, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

How can it be this low in my opinion it's the most powerful jothi Pokemon

Dragonite has been known to be the best pokemon non legendary for a while please put him higher in the leader board

Why isn't dragonite number one he can learn dragon breath dragon pulse a huge variety of moves he should be first

Taught Mewtwo Avalanche and it was easy to beat. Still deserves #5 here

15 Umbreon Umbreon Umbreon, known in Japan as Blacky, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Personally one of my favorite Eevee's, Umbreon can tank hits like a champ and it's simple yet effective design makes it a nice visual complinent to any team. I've gotten good results with it teamed up with Venusaur, or any Pokemon weak to psychic so that it can switch in and take the would be super effective hit.

Umbreon tops Espeon any day! And Only eevee evolution that can actually sustain a hit

He is incredibly strong, especially against Psychic and Fighting types because of its move Psychic.

A real tank, can't hit nearly as hard as Espeon but teaching it Curse and Payback will make your opponent wish they ever got out of bed. :D - BlazikenBro

16 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.

It swept my 6 level 100 all legendary team

Magikarp is god damn glorious in all ways

It will destroy you with its splash

Magikarp will destroy even the toughest opponents!

17 Arcanine Arcanine Arcanine is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Generation 1, it is a fire type Pokemon. It is the evolved form of Growlithe. Legends tell of its fighting alongside a general and conquering a whole country. Arcanine is also known for its high speed, capable of running over 6,200 more.

I love Grolith but Arcanine is even better.

Very high base stats and a nice movepool make Arcanine one of the best choices for a Fire type Pokemon in Jotho.

This is a very rubbish website. I have seen every pokemon on this list and I found out that many pokemon are from hoeen and sinnoh.And one more thing I saw that a magikarp(the weakest pokemon) is kept over charizard and mew. and arcanine should be number 1. arcanine is far better in game pokemon than tyranitar. the creator of this website is a mad.

18 Gyarados Gyarados Gyarados is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It evolves from one of the weakest Pokemon, Magikarp. But Gyarados has a high attack power (as of gen VII, mega Gyarados is ranking #19 for highest attack stat & would rank #10 if legendary Pokemon aren't included), and more.

Gyarados should be top ten everything about is great. it can learn flamethrower, ice beam, thunderbolt, and hydro pump. and his stats are amazing if you raise it right you could have all its stats over 200 and his attack power over 365. my gyarados has an attack power of 367. this Pokemon is truly amazing.

Gyarados is a awesome Pokemon

Should be in top 5

19 Quagsire Quagsire

Quagsire is a beast! It's typing makes it immune to electric types, and it has a large movepool. I just can't go without catching one whenever I play crystal. It's only downfall is that it can't learn Waterfall, but it can learn surf and whirlpool. So just teach it Surf, Slam, Whirlpool, and Earthquake and you've got a beast on your hands.

And just look @ that design. Shaped like a friend, 10 out of 10.

He's awesome because he is ground water type

Durpy not dirty

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

Gengar is a great ghost type and one of my favorite Pokemon

110 speed and 130 sp. Att. And the amazing hypnosis/dream eater combo. Only downside is you need to trade to evolve

Gengar is the best. It is very strong in it's Hollow Geist move.

21 Slowking Slowking

he is good

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

Meganium should be at the top, because it is incredibly defensive, it knows a ton of healing moves like synthesis and aromatherapy, and it can wipe out anything

Meganium is incredibly defensive, even more so than Venusaur, and deserves more credit, seeing as it can be a huge threat if used correctly.

People say its weak, just because of attack

Meganium is not only an amezing Pokemon, but it is also very relatable and super cool!

23 Aipom Aipom

Best pokemon

24 Furret Furret

It’s the best and will forever be

He's evolves from my favorite Pokémon sentret and isn't to shabby

Furret is amazing. I know tons of people who love Furret. Vote Furret!

Furret = Cutest pokemon which made of fur!

25 Lucario Lucario Lucario is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Lucario first appeared as a central character in the film Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and later appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and subsequent sequels, also appearing more.

LUCARIO IS THE ABSOLUT EBEST! He can wipe you out with it's bone rush and is like one of the best pokemon Game Freak ever created! Lucario should be one of the top 10 pokemon in this list. It's type is fighting/steel. Lucario knows some really good moves to absolutely wipe out pokemon. Lucario can one hit pokemon with it's attacks. There should be more pokemon like Lucario in the game.

He heheehehehhe

26 Alakazam Alakazam Alakazam was first shown in game freaks Pokemon Red & Green (Blue for outside of Japan) version. Alakazam is the final evolution of the Abra line. It evolves from Kadabra when traded. It is a pure psychic type. It is said to have an IQ of 5000 and is a human like Pokemon. It has high special attack more.

It’s op in gen 1 and it still is in the original gold/silver but in the remakes not so much but still good

How is he not on this list. He is a spk God and he is faster than gengar. He can defeat a mewtwo 20 levels higher than it. He is a glass cannon having low health and defense but he is one of the best Pokemon

27 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Charizard first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. They have later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated more.

29 Togetic Togetic

It can learn Metronome, which is like, the best move EVER!

30 Jolteon Jolteon Jolteon, known in Japan as Thunders, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Come on I mean it's an electric fox how cool is that

Jolteon, is great since there is no ground type Eeveelution, meaning it has a few weaknesses

It's from kanto

Speed is key
