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.

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

She has a greatly diversed and good team.

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!

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

3 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 too strong to be a champion

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.

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

Only champion of colour and is AMAZING

Iris is so cheerful, adventurous and energetic. What is with all the hate on Iris. Even if she says,”Such a little kid.” doesn’t mean she is a bad character. It suddenly became her habit but she laughs it off. Don’t forget, Haxorous is one of the Pokémon with a One-Hit K.O move.

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)

Totally underrated. y though - SoaPuffball

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

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

3 boss dragonites in soulsilver

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

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

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

Because he can predict when you ride a bike

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

He came when he heard you beat the elite four! - HeavyDonkeyKong

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!

Fun battle, though he technically was never the champion

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

I don't know who this is

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!

Go rattata!

focus sash + endeavor + quick attack

18 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
