Top Ten Best Non-legendary Sinnoh Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 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 ...read more.

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

Lucario should be first kill count for him 999trillion

Super strong. Beated a mewtwo in the game. Super helpful. Must catch.

Lucario is my favorite. Lucario should be first!

2 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.

I have a lv 100 infernape that with flame wheel, yes a weaker attack that blast burn flare blitz and close combat wich are my moves, owes cynthias lucaria with earthquak with a i-hit ko so beat that, lucario is stilll amazingly awesome though I have lv 100 on other game with cheat tortera zubat last evolution xray electric dude starapter withough close combat cuse I let it evolve later torterra and I thinkk thats it

My chimchar was evolve in infernape he is fire + fighting type pokemon

I have an Infernape and he/she can learn amazingly awesome strong moves like close combat and dig and even grass not (and to many good fire moves to count). My favorite part about Infernape is that he/she can learn so many different types of moves. GO INFERNAPE. YOU ROCK.

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

With it's only weakness being ice, it's really strong. Also it's really fun to One hit KO Barry's Infernape with earthquake.

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.

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

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

Best pseudo-legendary of all time, at least in my opinion.

Garchomp is a monster.
He can wipe a team completely.
Well, that is why he is in Cynthia's team

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

5 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.

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.

There hasn't been a strong electric type for a while and Luxray came and filled the position. And getting him early in the game means you can create a bond with it and love it even more. GO LUXRAY!

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

Empoleon was my first starter so I guess I might have a biased opinion but I think Empoleon is the coolest starter!

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!

My first Pokemon game was Pokemon Pearl Version. When I saw the 3 starters I instantly fell in love with Piplup. I loved everything about him. I wasn't to keen on Prinplup, but when he got to level 36, I cried with happiness! I was so proud to have a badass water-steel type in my possession. I was so happy that about 7 years later, I got another pearl version, and bred my own special amazing Iv's Empoleon. Plus, it was the first Pokemon I ever levelled up to 100.

EPIC DOMINATION, HEY EMPOLEON TELL magikarp TO JUMP OFF A CLIFF BECAUSE HE SUCKS. HEY BETTER YET PUSH HIM OFF. My point is that empoleon is a boss and can dominate the champ with one awesome move! BOOM MAGIKARP you can't even do that in your dreams!

What are you talking about? Splash does the most amount of damage out of all the Pokemon moves - ShinyDragonite

7 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 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

9 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.

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

Gallade is the best, fights better than any other, is speedy, and has an awesome design.

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

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.

Gallade is better than Lucario, but not by much. Lucario can defeat a foe before they even have a chance to react, but Gallade is effective against more types and has less weaknesses. Other than that they are basically the same.

The Contenders

11 Weavile

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!

Weavile is a real Dragon slayer! Sporting speed greater than Garchomp, learning Ice type moves that get STAB and having fantastic attack, your opponent's Garchomp will quickly go down for the count!

Aside from deoxys is the best physical sweeper - ilikepie

Weavile is the best! Mine knocked out out the whole sinnoh elite four with it only one knockout, and did I mention that its faster than garchomp? - weavileking

12 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

13 Bronzong

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.

This is a cool looking pokemon. Very unique design

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.

14 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!

15 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!?

16 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

17 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

18 Porygon-Z Porygon-Z, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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.

19 Bibarel

so strong

He evolves from Bidoof. You want more?

A good hm slave

He is a murderer - Goatworlds

20 Mamoswine

This pokemon is really cute and the best among all

Mamoswine truly is a beast. No doubt about it.

Mamoswine is awesome

Mamoswine is pure awesomeness

21 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

22 Spiritomb Spiritomb, known in Japan as Mikaruge, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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
Psychic
Shadow ball
Energy ball
BOOM

Had no weakness (same as sableye)

This thing is epic.

23 Glaceon Glaceon, known in Japan as Glacia, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

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

It's SO CUTE!

24 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.

25 Togekiss

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

Flinch kiss = Da best.

That simple

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

Togekiss learns tons of great moves! And it has a high base stat total. Not to mention it becoming a fairy type making it immune to dragon and giving it access to MORE powerful moves!

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

The fastest swimmer of all time.
Seriously, it has base speed 115.

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

27 Dusknoir Dusknoir, known in Japan as Yonoir, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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!

28 Mismagius

Underrated

Lucky chant is beast

Boss

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

He is a friend to all

Piplup may guide us all on our road to repentance.

Cute best starter and Pokemon of all time

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

30 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.

31 Rhyperior Rhyperior, known in Japan as Dosidon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

It's the boss!

Pooop head.

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

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!

33 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

34 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).

35 Gastrodon Typhlosion, known in Japan as Tritodon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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.

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

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.

37 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

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

Because he can change form

Rotom is the best! I sometimes get obsessed over legendaries and I tend to overreact when I catch them. But Rotom is the real deal.

Motor = Rotom Backwards 0.o

This guy is leagend.

39 Bastiodon

My personal favorite pokemon! I don't know if it's the design that makes people hate it, or the move pool but with iron defense, ancient power, heavy slam and iron head this guy's an unstoppable castle wall, literally!

A very strong Pokemon with brilliant defense and attack!

40 Gabite
41 Probopass Probopass, known in Japan as Dainose, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

His thing on its nose are really magnets

Underrated dude. Really fun to use

Such a beast 145 base defense, 140 base special defense, he does not go down easily+a great typing(rock/steel)

42 Monferno

Monferno looks badass and has a pretty good move pool

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

I'm sorry but can you read!? Phione is better than Pokémon like Uxie!?

44 Honchkrow

Gen 5 moxie enough said

Honchkrow has amazing offensive stats and a great movepool. His sucker punch kills

45 Mothim
46 Skorupi
47 Bidoof Bidoof, known in Japan as Bippa, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Bidoof is so overpowered! He swept the elite four! And that derpy face though._.

So derpy and cute!

Check a video on YouTube, it swept a legendary team O. O

You mean the god of all Pokémon Arceus? Oh my gosh! He's better than any Pokémon! But that face though! Such derp!

48 Lickilicky

Good Pokemon for a team! Very colorful moveset choices!

Really good Pokemon. I love Lickilicky for two reasons, 1. It is the most hated sinnoh Pokemon, REALLY! Lickitung is terrible! enough said and 2. It's basiclly miltank's cousin due to Lickilicky's rollout evolution. I'd put him WAY higher, in the 20's probably.

49 Purugly
50 Yanmega

Speed boost and life orb makes Yanmega an awesome sweeper. Definitely a threat.

I love Yanmega

I'm offended that the best bug type Pokémon is lower than bidoof and Pokémon that aren't sinnoh Pokémon but in sinnoh!
