Top Ten Pokemon Champions

The Top Ten

1 Cynthia

She is not like other trainers specialising a type but has a regard to all the types of pokemon making her one above all champions

Only reason I was able to beat her was because my Infernape was a badass and took out half her team.

If you have to argue that other Champions are better than Cynthia, that marks Cynthia as the bar. Honestly, no other Champions come that close to her.

Duh. Cynthia and her garchomp can wipe out an entire team. Garchomp almost wiped out my team in d&p too oops. I don't know if this is referring to anime or games, but either way cynthia has to be the toughest trainer in the entire pokemon world, in my opinion. The entire sinnoh league is no joke too! (Cynthia revealed only 2 of her pokemon in the anime, yet she still managed to convince most of us that she is the best Champion, so props to her! )

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.

Friendly, battles alongside you and has a very diverse steel/rock team that is so painful to battle, I personally prefer Wallace as the champion (he doesn't look gay to me) as I love sceptile so I have the type advantage but Steven is a better character overall.

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!

3 Red Red is a Pokémon Trainer from Pallet Town, Kanto. He is the first character to be playable in the Pokémon series and his initial appearance is set in the Generation I main games. He has since then made various appearances in Pokémon media, including the Generation III remakes of Red, Green, Blue, ...read more.

Red deserves to be above Steven and Cynthia, he is stronger and has caught a lot of pokemon. But not even that, you never battle him in the Pokemon League, he just serves as a hidden final boss.

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

Red is too strong to be a champion

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

4 Iris Iris is from the Pokemon bwhite version & Pokemon black 2 & white. She ether was the gym leader in Opelucid city in white version. She first appeared to aid Bianca, Burgh, and the playable character when Bianca's Munna was stolen, & acted as a bodyguard. In Black 2 & White 2, she was the champion. Iris ...read more.

Everyone Gangster until the champion pulls out an iron dinosaur that will eat all the ice in your cup

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 the only one who travels with ash so she had a lot of trannig wich makes her one of the best

Iris is my favourite character and very strong in pokemon

5 Wallace

Champion Wallace has a balanced water team, protecting his pokemon from electric and grass weakness, his memorable pokemon are Ludicolo, Gyarados and his Beautiful and stressful Milotic, a deserved champion for water lovers - superb69

Wallace is magnificent. He went from being a small Gym Leader living in a damn meteor, to a champion. I mean, sure, he looks gay, but.. HE'S AMAZING.

Champion Wallace has a balanced water team, protecting his pokemon from electric and grass weakness, his memorable pokemon are Ludicolo, Gyarados and Specially his beautiful and stressful Milotic. a deserved champion for the water lovers.

I think Wallace should be 2nd

6 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 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.

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

I Think Diantha should be number 3 because she has Higher Levels just that her pokemon has more weaknesses than the others

7 Blue

He had a well balanced team, and being your rival, was so fun to destroy

He was such an ass that I really darn enjoyed destroying him. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Best rival and original champion. And was pretty tough

It was too fun to fight him

8 Lance

In let's go he had four flying type pokemon and I think he only had two or three dragons

Best gym elite in the Kanto region! - TrollerPokeMaster

He is more of a flying type trainer than a dragon type trainer if you ask me - TealBoyxx

Technically was champion of 2 regions

9 Alder

This guy is so stupid

Don't let his volcarona get a quiver dance up I warn you

His bouffalant could wipe whole pokemon teams

This takes me back.

10 Professor Oak

Because he can predict when you try to ride a bike - MCUberXYB

I HAVE A THEORY
Oak is the most powerful champion in history, and he is the pokemon master that Ash is striving to become which is why he gave ash the troublesome pikachu to try and deter him! unfortunately for him the pikachu is a secret hidden legendary pokemon that will lead ash to victory and keep him young forever! O.O

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 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!

Fun battle, though he technically was never the champion

Why not, why not

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 Youngster Joey

His Rattata could defeat Red

I don't know who this is

Best champion

It is very nice

13 Steven Stone

He got Metagross that's WOW! he's got he's skitty and he's so powerful.
Ps: champion in hoan and kalos

14 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. ...read more.
15 Bidoof Bidoof, known in Japan as Bippa, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

The God that could beat Arceus and Thanos at the same time.

Bidoof was so difficult! hardest champion so far!

yes

Sure

16 The Player (Sun/Moon)

My Clefable and Garchomp kick ass and if they go down except to struggle against my Smeargle with anchor shot to prevent the opponent from escaping, imprison to make you lose all moves that we share, and transform to make me have your moves making you lose all your moves and have to struggle. (Thanks to Pimpnite for that Smeargle.)

Yeah

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!

18 Hau

Why not

19 Leon

His charizard burn all garchomp nonsense

20 Trip's Snivy

A Level 5 Snivy beat Ash's Pikachu, which has defeated Latios and Regice... what?

Trip's Snivy fainted a level 100 pikachu at level 5...

21 Ash Ash Ketchum, known as Satoshi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo. Ash is training to be a Pokemon Master, with his buddy Pikachu. Ash tries to stop the evil Team Rocket from stealing his Pikachu.

By the way, I think that Iris should not be ranked number 4 because to be real why the hell is she so high ash is so low on the list

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

Ash should be 1st his pikachu could beat anything!

22 Brock Brock is a character from Pokemon and is created by game freak & Nintendo. He was the first gym leader in pewter city, and specializes in rock Pokemon . ...read more.
