Top Ten Pokemon Champions

The Top Ten

1 Cynthia

First female champion, extremely strong, and her design is incredible! Plus she gives you Pokemon and helps you.

This is my original list, I don't think I made a remix, GO CYNTHIA! - moonwolf

Others think Lance or Steven is the real strongest master, In fact Cynthia' s pokemon doesn't need to worry about weaknesses, Cynthia knows a lot of History which gives her an advantage to know what to do and perhaps know what to pick a. Move. What I also wanted to say is that, I think shes smart, She has a Lucario and Garchomp which is pretty Deadly

Diantha take apart on number 1, BUT CYNTHIA IS SO COOL!

2 Steven

Cynthia is severely overrated. Steven had more involvement in ORAS than Cynthia had in the games she appeared in. I mean, having a Metagross is one thing. Having a shiny Metagross in the anime is another. He helps you in the story by giving you advice, and battling alongside you. He has a major role and suits the champion title best. Even if he is a monotype trainer, he can still kick your ass. Steel types are one of the best types in the games. He's one classy, memorable, badass character, and he easily outclasses the rest of the champions.

Is it just me, or is Steven Stone quite attractive? Probably just me. I honestly think he's pretty cute. Not gonna lie. My ORAS character is gonna be called AJ. Wish me luck not role-play crushing on him to death. Fan art just makes him look cuter. Never fought him but I will one day... oh Steven Stone... my Oras crush ( S/M is Gladion and Xy is*sighs dreamily *Calem...)

He may have been succeeded by Wallace, but he is strong, helps you throughout you're journey, and is pretty cool, let's not forget he gives you a belldum to!

I beat him before... on my billionth try. This guy is so hard! I had level 80 Latias, 80 Pikachu, 80 Blaziken, 70 Gyarados, 75 Gardevoir, and 75 Hariyama! I beat him finally and then did the extra story and caught Rayquaza, so it's easy for me to beat him now.

3 Iris Iris

Iris is the cheeriest champion ever. She is certainly the only Champion who actually uses strategy instead of attacking right away. Well except for Cynthia's Spiritomb (shudders).

Iris is my favourite character and very strong in pokemon

Iris is strong! Her haxorus is killer, lapras can sometimes be a challenge and hydregion is evil!

4 Diantha

Diantha could have been one of the top three is because that she has a REALLY good strategy. I like how she was an actress and everyone wasn't expected to be her as the champion. You can only meet her TWICE or THREE times in X/Y. You might say, "She is the least person to be the champion because she is an actress." Well, think again!

She's really cool, and has a good design, she can also be pretty tough, unless you have over leveled Pokemon (like me)

She is too easy and it felt like she was a movie star and then a champion on the side when it really should have been the other way around.

Tooo easy,the only challenge was her Aurorus.I one shot her Gardevoir! With a Steelix! Yes,steel types and that but I still one shot it! And you never see Diantha.You see her once in that cafe when you meet with*sighs dreamily*Calem/Serena,once in the monorail place,then,you meet her as champion,then post game you can trade her Ralts for any of your Pokémon.Then never see her again! It would have been AWESOME if Calem/Serena was champ but no,had to make a moviestar a champion.I have nothing else to say about her.She has no personality whatsoever,so I made her have no voice own.Lysandre was cleverly designed,Sycamore was a unique professor and Calem,well,I roleplayed me on a date with Calem in Lumiose City...he is so hot...

5 Red Red

Catches mewtwo with with charizard x caught the three birds as well number one

I think I disagree with Red becoming #3 in this list cause why, Red catched a Mewtwo its like a strong pokemon Mewtwo had been caught and its like a disappointment to Mewtwo Fans or Even Pokemon Fans just because its kinda Awkward you know

Of course he's awesome, but does he really count as a champion?

Red is evil

Because he can predict when you ride a bike

Prof Oak, I believed he was a Overall Champion before getting no defeats, He has all trophies in all Regions and that's all

The Contenders

11 Professor Kukui Professor Kukui Professor Kukui is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. He is a Pokémon Professor from the Alola region, as well as the founder of Alola's Pokémon League.

I don't really know, doesn't seem too good. Just added him for the sake of doing it!

Technically, he was never the champion. he was just filling the role until somebody defeated him. he was merely an acting champion. Nevertheless, he was awesome in my opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong

12 Steven Stone Steven Stone V 1 Comment
13 Gary Oak Gary Oak Gary oak appeared in the anime series in seasons 1-5 . He was ash's rival and childhood friend . Though they had a dispute once they fought over a rusty pokeball they wanted for luck, which broke after they fought over it . Gary was the grandson of professor oak . He had cheerleaders & his own car. more.
14 The Player (Sun/Moon)

Technically you are a champion in Pokemon Sun and Moon so,hey no one's stopping me! I'm gonna use my character,Delphi.Delphi is an energetic trainer who helps Pokemon in need.She cares about her team and loves seeing new Pokemon faces for her Pokedex.Hailing from Melemele Island,Delphi is cousins with a famous Kalos face(my head canon my rules)Rhiannon and visits her frequently.

And that's about it for the headcanon! Point is,I vote for YOU! The player!

15 Ash

Ash will be Champion of Pokemon Sun and Moon, The Author is not letting Ash be Champion because Ash's Goal is to be a Pokemon Champion, If Ash becomes a Champion then Pokemon is over. Ash can use its Ultimate Team for the Championship

Ash is a champion

Technicaly he is a chamoion for the orange league. I don't think that he will win any other league. But he deserves to in my opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong
