Top Ten Non Legendary Kanto PokemonThe best of the original 151 Pokemon, excluding legendaries.
The Top Ten
I have used all three starters in kanto and even though he is overrated he is far from bad. He stinks against the first three gyms but that is good you can level it up a lot and evolve it early and get a charizard by the fourth gym. And I evolved early cause my team was pikachu level 12 and charmander level 15.
Oh my gosh what the heck is he doing at 5? He can beat a blastoise, and destroy venisaur in two moves tops. But enough of the game. IN THE SHOW he has only LOST ONE BATTLE. He has defended ash from an entei and beat an articuno. He is so epic. Where is the other starters? Sitting in their pokemon or watching the battle helplessly as charizard is being a boss taking down pokemon one by one
Huh what that's what you think charizard's the best oh know too poor little charizard I think it's Venusaur is the best because he can beat blastoise and charizard the thick fat of venusaur made it super tough to fire moves
I loved charizard how stubborn it could be and how much spirit and it has
When I played Pokemon firered and leafgreen I normally chose Charizard (charmander) because I liked fire types somewhat and when it comes to legendary Pokemon I loved GIRATINA the most because its lonely stubborn protecting its territorry and being opposite of dialga and palkia I loved using GIRATINA in battle I always won with GIRATINA in battle it was like invincible almost able to defat ARCEUS in fair fight almost like LUCIFER facing GOD and I like KYUREM too for me KYUREM would be number 3 or number 2 even if being complete KYUREM could have definitely been able to defat ARCEUS if pushed its power to the absolute limit sometimes it would make KYUREM seem like a sibiling of ARCEUS or twin if ARCEUS werent alone when created everything if ARCEUS ans KYUREM was like rivals and if KYUREM lost and then KYUREM felt upset about losing that would have said much I would have wished to battled ARCEUS with ...more
Charizard is awesome.V 142 Comments
Dragonite.. I thought it as a weak Pokemon because it takes much time to evolve n even weaker at the stage of dragonair.. But its worth waiting once dragonair evolves into dragonite it can sweet off any trainer/elite four easily.. It is number 1 it should be number 1
It might be hard to evolve, but on black and white, it's super easy. But, instead of fishing in water ripples and hope you get lucky, catch a dratini. It'll be like level 50-53 so all you have to do is level it up twice. I did it and dragonite is so awesome!
Dragonite is the best, it can do :electric, fire, water, ice, ground and flying moves, basically evrery element. It's really smart and it can fly faster than a jet.
Charizard is kind of overrated as a starter, blastoise and venusaur are much more effective and arcanine is a much better fire type. The only reason to pick him is to have a fly hm slave but you eventually get the legendary birds so who needs that.V 83 Comments
Blastoise is a tank. He can beat both starter pokemon with either ice beam or hydro pump.
Blastoise is a boss. He could own a lot of these Pokemon in a battle - doublebattlebros
Th definition of god tank. Can DESTROY both starters with hydro pump and ice beam. My blastoise rents everyone foolis enough to battle it. Number one is charizard oh wait hydro pump, well then sure dragonite OH WAIT ice beam (dragonite should be first without mega but I think it counts because profile picture of blastoise) lord helix better watch out for this beast!
He is just amazing. Why it isn't on top?V 41 Comments
My magikarp can destroy the whole universe with its zero damage splash. All bow down to the mighty magikarp
Magikarp is the best in the world! It's splash can make you run in fear and when it evolves it is even stronger!
This pokemon will destroy your team and ineffedabaly kill you and take over the world magikarp will kill arceus in front of every one and proclaim itself king magikarp is the strongest pokemon in the world
Better then arceus no doubt! I prezent to u the god of arceus, Magicarp!V 158 Comments
Gyarados maybe strong it might even be the Top 10 most Powerful water Pokemon and a cool looking Pokemon but still its almost as strong as legendary
Gyarados is a boss
Really magikarp above gyarados that's the most stupidest thing I've ever heard all you people hack and you think you're boss wow that's bull in platinum heartgold black white 2 y omega ruby I have gyarados and I'm mighty proud of it why because he's bad ass not like magikarp who only splashes and has a extremely low attack gyarados is a bad ass and it's my third favorite Pokemon.
IT WAS DIFFICULT TO EVOLVE HIMBUT,IN MY FIRE RED,IT WAS ABLE TO TAKE ON MANY OF THEM. HE IS JUST ATROCIOUS.V 23 Comments
Arcanine's have got me out of countless tough situations I would use one for more situations than any other pokemon the best pokemon I've ever had by far. Although I've had hundreds of these guys and there always my best team member
It's base stat is the highest in this whole list. Why isn't it top one?! Japan don't like dogs so they kept making Arcanine lose easily and I hate Japan. They even said that weak stupid Axew bit one of Arcanine's eyeballs and defeated Arcanine easily! I'm gonna kill the anime! Arcanine was also seen good before. I am happy Meganium killed that Axew. Thanks Meganium! Arcanine and Meganium are friends!
Arcanine was suppose to be a legendary but Pokemon thought is was weird to have two birds and a dog so they replaced Arcanine with Moltres. It is 1 powerhouse!
Can we just take into account that RK9 has a higher mts than gyarados?V 36 Comments
Pikachu sucks. The only OP Pikachu is Ash's. Raichu should be on here if Pikachu is!
Raichu is better and Raichu is outclassed by Electabuzz who is also outclassed by Jolteon
Pikachu is the most powerful Pokemon it's electric attacks are so power full that anyone can give up
Not like other PokemonV 33 Comments
Nidoking should definitely be top ten, it has awesome power and great versatility for coverage, I'm surprised I'm the first to add him
Out of all the Pokemon, Nidoking is my number one favorite! Its move pool, looks and awesome shiny definitely deserves to be among the top 10!
Nidoking has a great variety of moves so it's a great choice for your party
The definition of badass.V 14 Comments
Pokemon Cypher quote: Think outside the BOX. But seriously, Alakazam will demolish you. Faster and more powerful than gengar, and don't forget that Psychic in gen 1 was horribly broken, with only one weakness in BUG, one of the weakest types. Also, Alakazam has such a great move pool, with STAB psychic and, in gen 1, great Special Defense due to the special merge. Only downside to using an Alakazam is his horrndous defense, but that is hardly a downside when you're so powerful and fast. To quote the Amazing World of Gumball, "Oh my god! He has a SPOON! "
Everyone who played the original games knows that Alakazam was literally unbeatable on your team.
Really... is there an explanation reacquired?
Alakazam is probably the best pokemon in the game next to new and mewtwo due to its psychic type. He is absolutely broken in the first 2 generations.V 15 Comments
If anything, Gengar is among the most inspired designs in the game (who doesn't feel a contagious smirk slip past their lips when looking at this cheeky demon? ). Granted you have a buddy to trade with, Gengar is a lethal special sweeper, especially against psychic types like Alakazam
Gengar in Pokemon stadium has to be the best because if he puts any Pokemon under hypnosis he has so many good moves to back it up like nightshade mega drain thunderbolt and even metronome
This is my favorite and sure it is is fast that's why I think it is stronger than ampharos and alakazam to dam right it is stronger
This just looks so cool, and it’s very fun to use it in battle.V 30 Comments
If used properly, nobody can beat Snorlax
Snorlax should be in at least the top 5 why is charizard even there one rock move can render him useless, meanwhile snorlax has only one weakness, fighting, and even with a machamp or something this guy is a beast, the best tank with the least amount of weaknesses period. THIS GUY IS BOSS AND MY FAVORITE Pokemon!
I think that Snorlax is way under rated. Back in Pokemon Fire Red, Leaf Green, When he would block the path and you had to get the poke flute and wake him, if you cought him he made a big impact in your Pokemon team if you used him. So I think he should be a little higher.
It can crush anything when it falls.V 33 Comments
Poor old Venesaur.It's the one pushed on the side while you picked your charmander who isn't really that good, unlike Venesaur.You see venasaur is a great pokemon it has a great move set and it's great for competitive battling.I like using leech seed, ingrain, energy ball or leaf storm, and sludge bomb or protect (if offensive or defensive) now I also life the design it's a dinosaur with a jungle, kinda like Torterra but a flower not a tree.I also got pretty happy when I saw it's mega evolved form.Then I saw Charizard get two forms, so I thought the other two would get one to.Nope just Charizard.Venesaur is wonderful because it's bulky and strong.You should have picked Bulbasaur
Venusaur is the most underrated starter of Red, Blue, Yellow, FireRed, and Leaf Green. However it is the best starter because it has a type advantage over the first, second, third, and eighth gyms. Charizard and is only good against the fourth gym and possibly the fifth gym. Also Blastoise only is good against the first and the last gym. Venusaur beats four gyms and has type matches to two of the others allowing it for easier use and it is not weak to any elite four member except Prima/Lorelei.
Bulbasaur is the best starter Pokemon. Your two other choices are a lizard who's butt is catching on fire, or an incredibly small, ugly turtle. Who wouldn't pick the awesome plant dinosaur that can create beams of solar energy, whip your opponent's ass with vines, and put them to sleep in seconds with powder?
Guys... I'm gonna break it to ya that Venusaur is poison and grass so little charizard will be wiped out and for blastoise?...solar beam will on e hit kill em guaranteeV 33 Comments
It can learn thunderbolt and solar beam this Pokemon does it all. This Pokemon is a boss if I could catch it earlier in the game cause then I would boss start up team and it is a good Pokemon to take out lance. Plus it is so cute and powerful I mean the icon they use for surfing on in the game is a lapras.
THIS B!TCH IS A BOSS NO WONDER IT TAKES SUCH WORK TO CATCH
Can learn Psychic, Ice, Water and other moves. An easy Dragon-killer. Can destroy anything along the Charizard line. Go Glaze!
awesome - nonamegameV 12 Comments
Look at them hair
Badass bird nothing else
Basically wiped out all trainers I met including the electric type gym, also it has 2 immunities and reasonable stats. (as of pokemon yellow)
Quickest. Smartest. Could've beat charizard if used correctlyV 6 Comments
All four of his arms were juiced up on steroids
This dude is an absolute beast. Put him on any team and he will rip through your opponent. Has enough bulk to usually take a hit and then he brings the pain train on..
This guy is on spheroids seriously
MuscularV 5 Comments
A learnset of ground, dragon, flying and electric destroys every team, plus the speed stat and attack stat is high and one of the rarest pokemon in the game and the only Kanto pokemon other than legendaries, starters and other fossil pokemon, where there is only one in the game
Best fossil Pokemon and is crazy fast. I'm jealous of Ash because he got a ride from one.
His a ability is pressure and few not legendary Pokemon have pressure as there abilityV 1 Comment
It has one of the highest base HP in the game. Added with its awesome defense and special defense; Vaporeon could easily survive 1-3 super effective moves. Add acid armor to that equation and you've got a simply unbeatable solution.
Not to mention that it's ice beam rivals even Articunos.
With the moves ice beam/surf, toxic, acid armor and protect; this eeveelution EASILY beats some of the best Pokemon in the whole game!
What's she doing way down here? Vaporeon is life, no matter, she is simply the best. All the other eeveelutions are nothing compared to her
Vaporeon, Espeon and Umbreon are the best. Enough said.
Yes all hail vaporeon - IceFoxPlayzV 8 Comments
Jolteon is the best electric type in kanto.
Fast and reliable with awesome special attack
Why is it 24! I got a jolteon and it beat so much! :( sad that no one likes it I honestly think that jolteon can beat a ground type cause I already have!
My Jolteon beat someone's darkrai by using 2 thunderbolts.V 7 Comments
Absolute banger of a pokemon. His voice is pure charm and the way he licks ash is amazing.
I love love him!
Charmander is more beast than all the other pokemon. He is the cuteset ever and super powerful!
Sooo cuteV 1 Comment
THE strongest Pokemon EVER. The only thing that could stand in front of MissingNo would be butter, but there are no butter-types Pokemon so MissingNo is the best Pokemon ever.
Is epic and knows the 3 best moves. It comes at the highest level in the game and can kill a Pokemon in one hit.
Corrupts both the 6th item spot and the hall of fame entries, high attack, and knows water gun twice! Besides Lugia, what is better?
Not much is known about this " pokemon" but it's pretty powerful - IceFoxPlayzV 14 Comments
Clearly the best electric pokemon quick and powerful
This pokemon is spelt wrong. Pikachu is way cooler and the way his tongue rolls up into his cheeks is absolute madness. I would trade this for a raichu.
In my opinion Raichu is the best electric type
My Taichung beats blastoise.V 7 Comments
so cute - nonamegame
Growlithe is really cute and can learn decent moved as well
Big dog. He was origionally a legendary but changed. However he is so strong and full of beautiful spirits and scent. I want one to rub itself on me.
Cute! (I LOVE cats)
It can talk! - Goatworlds
He is my favourite Pokemon ever (it was the first Pokemon card I ever had)
Squirtle doesn't just faint Pokemon. It kills them.V 2 Comments
It has such an original mega evolution. The baby finally left the pouch to kick butt! Also that is a cool design. Please, if you want to beat the elite four, use this guy to help with its mega evolution.
In REd and Blue it can know fly if it was a Missingno before (Missingno can learn fly) - Goatworlds
I like to fake out ghosts.
Best Pokemon ever. need I say more?
Flareon might not be as strong as other eeveelutions, Like Jolteon and all that, But I don't care, He's awesome!
Look at dat flufy tail! How can you resist!?!?!
I have always loved flareon. In gen 1 he was slow but his special was fantastic! In the remakes, firered/leafgreen, the move pool increases! Shadow ball, overheat, quick attack, and even baton pass (if you want to try it). Flareon has a special place in my heart ever since the jungle TCG set. Love this eveelution.V 1 Comment
Though it may have two four times weaknesses, and awful stats, it has one of the coolest designs and back stories of all time.
It can learn ICE BEAM! Where do I catch 1!
Tauros I love it - nonamegame
HIGH fisical attack and defense, highest accuracy so can do 1hitKO on high level enemies so if you teach him horn drill, body slam, ice beam (or blizard) and hyper beam its unstopable
That knives on his arms though
Them stats though
Why is Pinsir so low?
Based on lots of different legends and folklore about the nine tailed fox. This has to be one of the coolest and best looking Pokemon, not to mention strongest!
They're just beautiful and cute!
Ninetales has the longest life than any other Pokemon In episode it also changed its look
Aw hell yeah nineties for the win!V 4 Comments
It has a stick
I likes stix
Yea it is powerfully nice on team of your pick. It can eat any digimon because of the large head on he's head that has teeth of 4 on each side of he's mouth.
Some people say it is weak because a team rocket member has it but it can never loose because it sounds like victory bell.
Come on he's AWESOME... LIKE... CHOCOLATE... YUM...
Onix is best aganist grass Pokemons.
I know you'll hate me for this, but technically Mew is mythical not legendary
So cute. Mew is way better than crappy pikachu
It is true, Mew isn't a legendary allthough people assume it is (thanks to Mewtwo who is a REAL legendary) But Mew is still good.
It isn't a legendary pokemon technically so yh this pokemon should be 1 I guess. It can learn so many moves - ShakilJamani15
Eevee may seem like just a regular pokemon but can kick ass when used properly, especially when you evolve it, given the correct stone.
Why isn't eevee number one it's a dog and dog backwards is god screw arceus this the best overall!
It evolves into 8 awesome evolutions! And it's so cute and cuddly...!
Eevee is my favourite Pokemon! It looks cute and when used correctly can be more badass when not evolved. Looks SERIOUSLY CUTE in Pokemon x and Y.V 1 Comment
Hate to say it guys, but espeon isn't from kanto. it had its debut in Gold/Silver
Best evolution of eevee
Dude it's a johto Pokemon
Wrong generationV 1 Comment
I vote Rapidash at higher than this. She's a flaming unicorn that can run up to 150 mph in ten steps from a dead standstill. How is she worse than Raticate? Or Psyduck? Seriously?
You better stan for Legend R
Golem has super high defense and attack, but he is really slow and has low special defense unless he is facing a special based pokemon he is a force to be reckoned with.
Very good one
One powerful Pokemon, to bad it's so slow, but the power it punches its opponents with is fearful!
To me Bulbasaur was always a great asset to my team. They're cute, dependable, and not to mention just a helpful part to each team.
I know venusaur is ugly but is it really a reason to hate bulbasaur too, I would say NO because bulbasaur is great and cute
This little plant animal thing is strong and cute but I like ivysaurV 4 Comments
Heh? Steelix is johtos!
You cannot beat the attack and defense stats. Also there is no better HM slave. Strength, Surf, Cut, Rock Smash. I always have a Kinsler on my team.
The original Crab-Like Pokemon, Crabhammer, Knock Off, Return, Agility/Swords Dance. Come on this thing hits HARD!.
Crabhammer... And guillotine. Awesome moves
HIS HING WILL DESROY YOUR EAM WITH AGILITY
It's top percentage, bitch
Ahem ahem F.E.A.R. - turtwig
I love Mudkip and its evolution is awesome, but it's not from Kanto
Isn't a kanto pokemon - ShakilJamani15
My first starter! I even have a Mudkip plush! - Dawscr
Have a bost
Caught one in red. Best move I ever made in the game. You guys's should really try him out.
In yellow my butterfree took out Brock with confusion
Say what?! Weak fools say eh?!
Think of a bug type having high defense rate and can use psychic types...
Meh, I just defeated almost every trainer I met using this Pkmn
Only fools think that there are weak and strong pkmn
Those who recognized such simple, ordinary (weak-treated) pkmn are the REAL Pokemon GENIUSES!
