Top Ten Best Non-legendary Sinnoh Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 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.

I have had hundereds of pokemon and he just stood out as a physical special and speed Sweeper. One of my favorites.


He's Weak but still strong I love him in smash bros

Why is Charizard on the list? Besides the point, Lucario is an epic Pokemon. An incredible design, awesome stats and typing, even a mega evolution. It's op, I first got it from the guy I don't remember the name of as an egg. But I was lazy and didn't hatch it. Then I saw Cynthia had it, and I was like, "Holy! I want me one of those pokes! " I asked my friend and he said it was from the egg, so I hatched it, and friendship evolved Riolu into Lucario.

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

I admire Infernape especially Ash's Infernape becuase he looks like Sun Wukong from the Journey to the West legend. In the Sinnoh anime as a Chimchar he didn't have a great start in life whatsoever especially his time as Paul's Pokemon, the poor little guy was treated by Paul even from his teammates. When Chimchar lost in a tournament Paul released him still injured but Ash stepped in and took Chimchar as his new Pokemon friend. Ash really did took the time, paitence and understanding for Chimchar, Chimchar worked hard to control his awesome powers as well as his dark side, evoled into Monferno then finally Infernape. Infernape became Ash's powerhouse and loyal true friend. I would like an Infernape to be my Pokemon friend too.


Infernape can Destroy Lucario easily #lucariosucks

Infernafe is a beast it could destroy Lucario it should be number 1

3 Garchomp Garchomp Garchomp, known in Japan as Gaburias, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I love this garchomp

Hello? Dragons are champions

Fairies can kick their butt. I love the Dragon type but to be honest, Fairies can wipe them out. - RiverClanRocks

I trained one from level one to level one hundred, it has an amazing move pool and an overall amazing stat range, I think everyone should own one of these amazing Pokemon for themselves.

Garchomp is my favorite pokemon plus he's the champions partner
My lv89 garchomp can crush any pokemon except for arceus

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

You just can't stop torterra. Even through earlier stages (turtwig, Grotel) the still lead the pack through gym battles and other challenges. Torterra has an amazing attack and defense, which proves that he is a force to be messes with. The moves torterra can learn and use are the best moves around, earthquake, synthesis, wood hammer, frenzy plant, and leaf storm. Those are the best grass type and ground type moves around. Another good thing about this is that torterra is the evolved version of a starter, so you get him early on.

He is ground and that eliminates poison and fire as weaknesses

Torterra is the best, and definitely better than Lucario. Here's a story one time right after my grotle evolved and learned earthquake my friend challenged me to a 1 vs. 6 fight against his lv. 43 Lucario ( my team was all 32 or below). I accepted and wanted to see Torterra in action so I sent him out first. Lucario used dig and Torterra used earthquake which beat Lucario in 1 hit with no critical.

My first pokemon ever in history who is easiy over looked but is awesome and pwns everything even arceus bows down to him stab earthquake - ilikepie

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

What a Pokemon! Its design is one of my favourite designs for a Non legendary Pokemon ever, and it learns spark and it starts with electric terrain.

I've had my Luxray since it was level 3 and now it's level 100. Such a strong Pokemon, defeated many of my friends teams alone as well as defeating the elite four twice, without any other Pokemon. Also won all of the Super Contests in the game. Wouldn't trade him for the world, truly the best Pokemon out there.

Second encounter in my pearl game was a shiny shinx and now It’s one the aces of my team as a shiny Luxray

HE IS A BEAST ELECTRIC TYPE. My luxray and torterra were my favorite Pokemon in Pearl. My luxray was amazing. He could sweep the whole elite four.

V 44 Comments
6 Empoleon Empoleon Empoleon, known in Japan as Emperte, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It is the best sinnoh starter

Looks cool

Empoleon’s Steel/Ice typing is very useful against tougher types like Poison and Dragon typings and it becomes a tank once it is highly leveled.

Once you train empoleon with great moves and get it to a high level, heck, even if you don't, empoleon is a great fighter. Becasue it's steel and water gives it great defense. If your looking for a great starter Pokemon, Empoleon all the way!

V 65 Comments
7 Staraptor Staraptor Staraptor, known in Japan as Mukuhawk, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Come on. This thing can learn Close Combat! If I recall, most if not all of the other Pokemon on this list can't. This isn't even a fighting type!

A beastly flying type that can learn some fighting type moves as well such as close combat. He is quick, extremely quick in fact. His/Her speed stat is worthy of a medal and it's attack stat is something special, it can also fly you across the nation. Have him in my team. Insane Pokémon.

Staraptor has the best moves for a flying type. Close Combat! Endeavor! It can even learn electric moves!

Only flying type capable of learning close combat, it can defeat ice types with that move. Go staraptor.

8 Electivire Electivire

Electivire is good with Fire Punch, Ice punch, Thunder punch and Cross chop!

In the anime ash's infernape crushed up paul's electivire and it just looks so weird too

Awesome is what electivire is but not better than lucario sorry

Electivire is the best. He can 1 shot the strongest mega Gyarados. He even evolves from Electabuzz. He is my #1

V 18 Comments
9 Gliscor Gliscor Gliscor, known in Japan as Glion, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Weak to ice but thanks to the move tutor fire fang helps it a lot

Ground and flying, can't beat it.

Gliscor is a total badass!

Love him. Simple as that.

V 13 Comments
10 Weavile Weavile

It is very cool and very fast!

This is my favorite pokemon ever. Life orb, swords dance, icicle crash, night slash, and ice shard or brick break. It can wreck easily mate

Weavile is really the only Pokemon who can outspeed and OHKO Cynthia's Garchomp that you can obtain in-game (without trade or something).

Weavile is my favourite Pokemon by far! Weavile not only have a VERY high speed stay, but great attack! So give weavile brick break, his speed will make him go first in a battle, and one shot from brick break should clean house in every battle!

The Contenders

11 Gallade Gallade Gallade, known in Japan as Erureido, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

His combination of type allows him to beat up most of high rated pokemons

Gallade is great physical attacker - Decidueye2314

One of the best designs I have ever seen. There is just something about some pokemon that makes you fall in love with it just by looking at it. His stats are way above average and he has a very decent move pool.


V 29 Comments
12 Magmortar Magmortar

COME ON 56th PLACE! IT HAS ARM CANNONS AND WILL INCINERATE EVERYTHING! And it has a base stat total of 540, which is pretty damn good.

The best I mean the bazooka Pokemon that's pretty darn awesome

Lucario is overrated

Nice ice cream head

V 5 Comments
13 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.

Charizard is not a Pokemon from sinnoh. I think it has to be the most overrated Pokemon in all of Pokemon history.

Get this horrid thing off this list!

He's not a sinnoh Pokemon but he's a BEAST

Get this piece of garbage deleted from Pokemon

V 29 Comments
14 Dragonite Dragonite Dragonite, known in Japan as Kairyu, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Why are Dragonite and Charizard on the list? They aren't even Sinnoh Pokemon! - DemonSpider253

Dragonite isn't from sinnoh -_- But he's still cool :3

Dragonite is usually at the top of every top best non legendary pokemon I'm so glad that it's not on this one, for some reason, I just don't like dragonite that much

He deserves a spot on this list just for being the best pokemon of all time

V 20 Comments
15 Rampardos Rampardos

It's shiny form makes it one of the most epic looking Pokemon of all time. And it's really good with a choice scarf.

Give it Swords Dance, Substitute, Payback, and Earthquake, and this thing is an absolute BEAST!

has the highest non-legendary attack stat - ilikepie

Has the highest attack stat that is non-legendary.

V 9 Comments
16 Drapion Drapion

Come on, he should be in the top 10. He has excellent typing, looks like a boss and swept half of Ash's team in what was arguably one of the most epic battle sequences the anime has ever done. I've never in my LIFE seen a Buizel, Staraptor, Torterra decimated and abused like that.

What's more is that Drapion has the ability Sniper so if you equip him with a Scope Lens and give him a critical-hit set then I know that Drapion has a job to do... SWEEPING!

This monster definitely deserves top 15. Most underrated Pokemon of the Sinnoh Region, teach it the right moves and you have a juggernaut, especially since it has a badass design

Though it is an underrated pokemon, this pokemon can literally turn team battles. IT's cross-poison is really awesome move

He's an awesome scorpion! Why's he only #14? And why's CHARIZARD in the Top 10!?

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

Tyranitar is one of my favourite Non-legendary Pokemon but it's from Johto

This from johto look it up

He should be way higher

This is a damn Johto mon!

18 Bronzong Bronzong

This is a cool looking pokemon. Very unique design

Being a physic and steel type, bronzong is only weak against 2 types: Ground and Fire, but Bronzong may have the levitate ability making it immune to any ground moves or it will have the ability that will cut any fir damage he takes by half. And in sinnoh, the only pokemons that could be a threat to this great tank pokemon are Ponyta/Rapidash and Chimchar(and its evolutions) IF bronzong has the levitate ability of course. This pokemon has great defense AND Sp. Definitely giving it a great advantage to most attacks. This is not your normal tank that will go down with 2 powerful moves, but with at least 5 powerful moves making it a great time giver to heal your injured pokemon and himself. Bronzong may learn Iron Defense(increasing its defense greatly) and also Calm Mind, increasing its Sp. Atk and Sp. Definitely, making it even more of a tank! Have it learn Iron defense, Calm Mind, Gyro Ball/Flash Cannon, and any status attack like Confuse Ray/Hypnosis/Toxic.

Better than garchomp in some ways, with a good held item, nature, and ability, its beyond legendary.

It is resisful of most types and its only weakness is against fire and ground, but if it has the ability Levitate, Ground moves do not affect it.

19 Abomasnow Abomasnow

I can never get past wood hammer... :/

Infernape thrashes that bruh

It sinks

Abomasnow is a strong pokemon but it is not that fast so the best option to defeat it is to use a quick fire type. like blazican or infernape

20 Mamoswine Mamoswine

Mamoswine truly is a beast. No doubt about it.

Mamoswine is awesome

Mamoswine is pure awesomeness

An incredibly powerful ice type that can even hold itself up in the OU

21 Spiritomb Spiritomb

Spritomb is awesome! However, you CAN pull super effective hits on spritomb like this:
1. Use foresight or odour sleuth on it
2. Use a fighting type move.
Alternatively, if playing generation 6, use a fairy type move.
Also, the sinnoh starters are kind of out of whack, read this:
Torrterra beats infernape by infernape using flare blitz or something simmular by torrterra CANtake a hit and OHKO infernape by using earthquake due to torrterra having decent AT and STAB and infernape's relatively low defense.
Infernape beats empoleon due to infernape moving first and using an OP close combat and another OHKO because of infernape's very high AT and STAB.
Finally empoleon beats torrterra because empoleon can learn ice beam delivering a 4x super effective hit

Spiritomb is such a beast!
Dark pulse
Shadow ball
Energy ball

Had no weakness (same as sableye)

This thing is epic.

V 10 Comments
22 Rhyperior Rhyperior

It's the boss!

Rhyperior should be higher, he has STAB Stone Edge, Earthquake, and a really high physical defense.

It kills and it don't dies... doesn't get any better than that

Pooop head.

23 Roserade Roserade

A strong Pokemon, that I absolutely love, and though it does look a little bit girly, the high sp. Attack and defense make it a good addition to a party, much better than some of the "cool looking tough Pokemons" like marowak.

Just imagine. You are watering the garden, and a Roserade appears to help you. Then she slices open your undies. Looks can be deceiving...

Roserade must be in top 15. This thing is insanely powerful. Teach it Sludge Bomb, Energy Ball/Giga Drain, Psychic and Shadow Ball.

Kinda girly but still cool - ilikepie

24 Froslass Froslass Froslass, known in Japan as Yukimenoko, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I just love this guy cause its immune to fighting moves.

I have a personal preference for ice types, but she is my second favourite (after articuno). Plus she wrecks house and being from my favorite region sinnoh is a bonus.

Awesome! Ice Beam, Shadow Ball, Hail, and double team. Unbeatable

I love froslass. As much as I love empleon and luxray, l had to vote for froslass because she is 37! And she should be at least in the top 10!

25 Bibarel Bibarel

He evolves from Bidoof. You want more?

A good hm slave

Bibarel is the best HM slave.

He is a murderer - Goatworlds

26 Glaceon Glaceon

It's design ia so cute and elegant, and Ice is my favourite type.

She is strong and cute! Who doesn't love her!


27 Hippowdon Hippowdon

I could never get past berthas in the elite four

Hippowdon is underrated and one of the best ground types, he deserves to be higher on the list

It is a powerful Pokemon and ground types are my
My second favourite types

28 Porygon-Z Porygon-Z

has special attack on par with alakazam and it is zed on the other thing canada rules : ) - ilikepie

Really good when fully evolved however you have to trade it three time with certain items to make it fully evolve into porygon-Z

It's crazy special attack can take out almost anything with only one boost!

My best member in platinum. Swept Cynthia's WHOLE TEAM.

29 Slowking Slowking

Slowing is rather amazing, but underrated. Although he is incredibly slow the moves Curse or Trick Room can let you use that to your advantage! Could totally knock Lucario's socks off!

Slowking is from god damn Johto!

This thing isn't even in sinnoh though

JOHTO - TheUmbreon

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

Floatzel is fun to use okay? It's got either water veil or swift swim. The water veil can be used for it to hold a flame orb and switcharoo the orb without them knowing about the flame orb if you wait a turn. And swift swim... Unless your Grease lighting your not catching this thing. It's attack is good for it to it's a physical sweeper as you might have guessed. I also liked the design I like the color of it and the "inflating life chest"as I like to call it looks pretty nice. It's pretty good honestly all around.

He is a very underrated water Pokemon who is unique because he can be used as a surf waterfall user but still b very useful, he is very fast and can counter his two weaknesses of grass and electric with dig and ice beam, one of my favorites

with ability has the highest speed in the game - ilikepie

Water Pokemon best= floatzel is best

31 Togekiss Togekiss

It's a really great sweeper I took out a mewtwo with this!

Flinch kiss = Da best.

That simple

Dissapointed that Togekiss is this low. What about air slash + serene grace? Togekiss is a great pokemon for any team if used properly. And the fact that Charizard and Dragonite are on the list is just plain stupid. Togekiss should at least be in the top 15.

It learns lots of moves like
1. Extreme speed
2. Aura sphere
3. Sky attack
4. Psychic

32 Milotic Milotic Milotic, known in Japan as Milokaross, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Why is milotic here? He's from ruby & sapphire...

Water snake thing. The champion has one. Why is this not number at least 10? It looks awesome and so does its shiny form. Get this it evolves from... Feebas magikarp's cousin

The prettiest Pokemon it is dubbed

Milotic can be such a janitor that can lead to huge sweeps! It has high sp. definitely and HP stats so it is almost unable to beat. Just look at Milotic's mirror coat! I had a hard time taking down cynthia's milotic, even with my dialga.

33 Leafeon Leafeon

I always floor my friends with my leafeon, I love em, so powerful

One of the best Grass type Pokemon and it has a powerful move pool.

Leafeon is best Pokemon! It's so powerful and elegant!

All I'm saying is that Leafeon is the BEST!

34 Piplup Piplup Piplup, known in Japan as Pochama, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Piplup is the cutest Pokemon in the world. love :Danial

35 Swampert Swampert Swampert, known in Japan as Laglarge, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This powerhouse physical sweeper of a pokemon also boasts having only one weakness, grass. With Earthquake, Surf, Ice Punch, and Brick Break, swampert can take down The majority of non grass threats.


This is a Hoenn starter, although this Pokémon the best stats better that the others.

From Hoenn

36 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.

He's the strongest Pokemon in existence. - henry_danger_is_great

All hail butt kicking lord Karp. Best Pokemon in the game.OP. Killed my Mewtwo. Took me 13 years to catch - Lucariosabeast

Praise be to lord karp

Magikarp will rule your tommorow with his splash attack! It may do no damage at all, but it will make you run in fear as your team suffers the fate of any other pokemon that battled it!

V 13 Comments
37 Togepi Togepi Togepi, known in Japan as Togepy, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He can use many powerful moves using metronome

Why is this better than Togekiss

Cute AND strong? AWESOME... LIKE... CHOCOLATE...

38 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.

It is a water and flying type that can have a moveset of: surf, earthquake, thunderbolt, and flamethrower. Lightning type? Use earthquake. Grass? Flamethrower. Unbeatable. Unbelievable that gyarados is so far down on the list, and that magikarp is ranked above it, let alone any Pokemon

The lengdary red gyarados is the best shiny Pokemon and its a hard hitter and has outstanding stats all around if you want a unstoppable gyarados earthquake dragon dance aqua tail and ice fang makes it a physical attacker and super fast hard hitter perfect for one hit kos so vote for gyarados please

If he was dragon type I would teach him Draco meteor

He is awesome. Too bad its not a dragon type Pokemon

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

I love shaymin!

You kidding me? he's a legendary pokemon! this says NON-legendary pokemon although he is quite strong

40 Pachirisu Pachirisu

So cute! And can be really good in game if trained properly!

Easily my favorite electric type. Although its not the best Pikachu clone, it's a monster! Also, I have a shiny one and it's adorable!

The world champion swept the opponents with this bad boy.
Pachirisu is like Pikachu of the Sinnoh region.

41 Gastrodon Gastrodon

Personally this is my favorite pokemon of all time and I really couldn't give a reason besides: goofy slug friend (also one of the better water/ground types with great move coverage and RECOVER)

I love Gastrodon, it's so cute. It was removed from Cynthia's team for being too powerful. This pokemon is amazing. - sri007venkat

Seriously the best Water AND Ground type. How is he not more loved? - Meko750

He's great for a wall, and I use my East Sea gastrodon all the time.

42 Dusknoir Dusknoir

The best sinnoh Pokemon that ever existed

This thing is OP. U just need to give it fling and an iron ball, plus trick room. Shadow punch or shadow sneak are good attacks, however I have to say that a Dusclops with eviolite is powerful too!

43 Vespiquen Vespiquen

Simply I love it

With fury cutter it can just slice Kyurem's head off and dice it into peices to feed it to her larvae.

Vespivespiquen is super strong.I beat all the gym leaders and the elite four using nw vespiquen.I just love her.

44 Caterpie Caterpie Caterpie, known in Japan as Caterpie, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I'm dissapointed this thing isn't higher, Cynthia fears this Pokemon more than arceus

Best Pokemon Ever, sweeps the E4 easily

45 Psyduck Psyduck

Psyduck=ultimate fartalicious giant chunk of poo


46 Buizel Buizel Buizel, known in Japan as Buoysel, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I prefer it to Floatzel

This guy sucks

47 Blaziken Blaziken Blaziken, known in Japan as Bashāmo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Wow a classic fire Pokemon

He can gain speed

Yo this isn't Hoenn

This is a Hoenn Pokemon idiot

48 Scyther Scyther

He is a total prodigy

Bug/flying one of bugs weaknesses are flying so that just helps it

He is even better than scizor-his post evolution

I thought this was a Sinnoh list, not a Kanto list.

49 Magnezone Magnezone

He is so powerful, he can trap any steel type and beat them up. He can trap an Empoleon or a Steelix. But the problem is that he is floating and he needs to be programmed with Levitate or something making it immune to Ground types, just like how The Forces of Nature are immune to ground types. Magnezone is my favourite pokemon and I would love him to be in the top 5 or at least the top 20s after Arceus, Rayquaza, and Mewtwo.

It already knows a lot of moves like electro ball and discharge which do a lot of damage. And if you have magnezone, you can generate magnetism.

Electro Ball is worthless on this thing. It has low speed, let's get real.

How the hell is this lower than Luxray and the first form starters? Magnezone is a top tier mon thanks to it's ability Magnet Pull, and easily the best electric type Pokémon in Sinnoh. 4x Ground weakness? Magnezone learns Magnet Rise. It's even stronger than the overrated furry bait (without mega).

50 Turtwig Turtwig Turtwig, known in Japan as Naetle, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

My first Pokemon much better than the other starters so cute and it deserves a much higher place on this list
