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.

Woot woot everybody now, woot woot LUCARIO KICKS BUTT!

This thing is a beast! It took down my lv 60 Gyrados with one arora spear at just lv 61 and arora spear is a fighting move, and Gyrados is a flying and water type, so arora spear is un-effective against Gyrados, because it is a flying type so VOTE FOR HIM! HE KICKS BUTT!

Lucario is just awesome, it learns really great moves such as close combat, extreme speed, dragon pulse, etc just without tm...and not to be forgotten, AURA SPHERE! beside the great movepool it just has fantastic atk, sp atk and spd and it has the best designe of every pokemon

2 Infernape Infernape

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

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.

Infernape is a very powerful Pokémon to me.its Max defense is 265

3 Garchomp 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

He would be my favorite pokemon to use and would be the Highest level on my team

4 Torterra Torterra

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

I love torterra, he is unstopeble his Earthquake defeat like EVERY POKEMON!
It was also my first starter and he did really well

Please gif this beast some love
Vote for him please...

5 Luxray Luxray

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!

This thing is around 6ft tall and is my favorite pokemon. I always loved to see my shine evolve into Lucio and Lucio evolve into luxray. My luxray at just level 68 can almost defeat my brothers team that includes many high
level pokemon including moltress and charizard

6 Empoleon Empoleon Empoleon is a large, navy blue, penguin-like Pokémon. It has a wide, yellow beak with three pointed horns that form a trident-shaped crest and small, blue eyes. Large horns are a symbol of leadership and strength for Empoleon. There is a blue marking resembling a crown over its eyes and a white, lacy more.

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

Great poke only problem is it evolved into a steel type just before the fighting type gym

7 Staraptor Staraptor

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!

Staraptor is a beast

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

What staraptor,luxray,tortera and empoleon comes before it no way

9 Gliscor Gliscor

Ground and flying, can't beat it.

Gliscor is a total badass!

Love him. Simple as that.

10 Weavile 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

Definitely My all time favorite pokemon!

The Contenders

11 Gallade Gallade

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.

Gallade is a pokemon featured in sinnoh. Quite awesome as a fighting and psychic

My favorite Pokémon is Gallade this thing is so much better than Ralts, Kirlia and Gardevoir how is this thing not better than lucario

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

This thing is a beast. It's a fire-duck with LITERAL mortars on its arms! It utilizes high special attack and a diverse movepool to destroy it's opponents.

13 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

So overrated, if pikachu is on this list as well, I'm going to puke - Yuanlong

14 Dragonite Dragonite Dragonite is a character from the Pokémon franchise by Nintendo. It is a dragon and flying type Pokémon created in the first generation of Pokémon. It is a Pseudo Legendary Pokémon.

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

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

He's awesome

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

Beaten Torterra and Staraptor but still in no.14. how pathetic.

17 Tyranitar Tyranitar

This from johto look it up

This is a damn Johto mon!

Johto is a great gen, but not sinnoh - TheUmbreon

He should be way higher

18 Abomasnow Abomasnow

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

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

Not a good pokemon if you ask me. Being 4x weak to fire is no way an actual good Pokémon to have in your journey. Trust me, it's difficult!

19 Bronzong 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.

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.

Two words. gyro ball. literally, it can wreck poop,especially with full incense/lagging tail. even without that, bronzong is an op pokemon. it's two weakness become one when you count it's abilities. levitate and heatproof makes this thing an absolute beast. beat cynthia's garchomp with it with gyro ball-at level 49.

20 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)

Worst Pokémon ever
