Top Ten Pokemon Champions

The Top Ten

1 Cynthia

She has a greatly diversed and good team.

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

Cynthia is better than all the other champions by a long shot. Prior to gen 6, her first pokemon had 3 immunities and no weakness. And then it gets worse. You have to face the onslaught of the rest of her team, including her Garchomp, who is arguably the best pseudo legend. Her team is well balanced, being able to cover any weakness her other pokemon have. 4x weak to ice on her Garchomp? Switch in for Lucario. Lucario weak to fighting? Switch in for Roserade/Togekiss (Pt). That, and her pokemon were very high levels in the games she debuted in. Overall, Cynthia's team is what makes her a great champion, one that will not go down without a fight.

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

2 Steven

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.

Wish he was the best

One word: Sturdy
That made his team almost unbeatable
His cradily and Mega Metagross are my nightmare

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.

4 Iris 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 more.

I mean has a dragonite!

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


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

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

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

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

Lance may be easy to prepare for and battle but three Dragonites is amazing plus his theme is epic.

Best gym elite in the Kanto region! - TrollerPokeMaster

3 boss dragonites in soulsilver

9 Alder

This guy is so stupid

This takes me back.

Great champion overall learned a lot after taking the L from N then gives you a hard time when you go up Vs him life isn’t fair.

10 Professor Oak Professor Oak

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 try to ride a bike - MCUberXYB

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

Because he can predict when you ride a bike

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.

Fun battle, though he technically was never the champion

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

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

13 Youngster Joey

Go rattata!

focus sash + endeavor + quick attack


Best and hardest champion by a long shot! He had six level 100 Rattatas with the power to destroy the Pokemon world! Top percent man!

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.)

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!

19 Ash 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.

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
