Top Ten Greatest Pokemon Villains from the Video Games


The Top Ten

1 Ghetsis Ghetsis Ghetsis Harmonia, or simply Ghetsis, is the main antagonist in Pokemon Black and White and the direct sequels, as well as the adoptive father of N, Concordia, and Athea.

The only villain who tries to kill the player

While I think Lusamine and Ghetsis are a tie, this is a great list nonetheless. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The writers really trolled us here. initially, Ghetsis seemed to be the villain. And then, N seemed to be the Villain. And then, well, in the very end, we find out that Ghetsis really WAS the main villain all along! LOLOL! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Evilest villain in the games so far. Ghetsis' track record includes: Owning a Hydreigon that knows "Frustration" and considering the kind of Pokemon Hydreigon is, for it have a strong "Frustation" in it's moveset must means you are scum of scum. Being a master manipulator who manipulated his own followers into believing his lies of "Wanting to liberate Pokémon from humans so they can truly be happy" when in reality he wanted the people of Unova to release their Pokémon so he could take over as the unchallenged ruler and came DANGEROUSLY close to succeeding. Manipulated N (His own son, adopted son) and crippled him emotionally and mentally so he wouldn't question Team Plasmas' ideals and follow his bidding without question and made him genuinely believe he was doing the right thing. Made N believe he the "Hero" the legendary Pokemon of Unova would choose to ensure his victory and fully intended to usurp that Pokémon from N. Flatout told N he didn't care about him and disowned him ...more

2 Cyrus

He tried to destroy the universe to make a new one then ended up being dragged into hell forever by giratina - how is that not clear he is the best villain?

Started the long road of truly evil pokemon game villains. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Gyados is the problem..

3 Lusamine Lusamine Lusamine is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. She is the head of the Aether Foundation.

I like better than bowser and ganondorf, she's better than this two guys, she is ganondorf, for lusamine as a character ripoff that better than the original, she have the best name for a villain - lusaMINE, lusamine is the most beloved fictional villain+most popular fictional villain, should be number 1.

From what I have heard, she is the most terrifying pokemon villain in the history of forever and make ghetsis lysandre, Cyrus, and mystery dungeon darkrai look as warmhearted and likeable as pokemon league champion Cynthia in comparison. Can't wait to see whatever twisted things her mind leads her to do in these games. - HeavyDonkeyKong

The lustful leader of Aether Foundation. This girl has a smart team.Milotic nearly destroyed the whole team,Hydro Pumping Primarina to death AND Aegislash.Clefable isn't bad.Mismagius and Beware are annoying and Lilligant.Pretty difficult seeing as I had nome of its weaknesses.My plan with Aegislash was Destiny Bond first,I thought it would work.Her character is Haunting.She seduces Hau by nice talk,then kidnaps Lillie(well,makes best skull Plumeria to do it).Also LILLIgant.SHE STRAIGHT UP REPLACES HER DAUGHTER WITH A POKEMON!

She doesn’t even care about her children. She only loves ‘beautiful things’

...I like Lillie though...

4 Primal Dialga

He had the most understandable goal out of everybody: he just wanted to survive. That's it. That alone makes him relatable in my opinion. He's become feral, so the only thing that he wants to do is to SURVIVE. - HeavyDonkeyKong

5 Dusknoir Dusknoir

From Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2. the ending reveal is shocking! - HeavyDonkeyKong

6 Darkrai Darkrai Darkrai is a legendary Pokemon developed by Game Freak. The only way to get this Pokemon was through two events, only one in the United States.

The true Main Antagonist, Mastermind, Chessmaster, and all around big bad of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2. - HeavyDonkeyKong

7 Lysandre

Lysandre was a very underrated villain, but I can understand why people do not like him... - HeavyDonkeyKong

8 Guzma Guzma Guzma is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. He is the leader of Team Skull. He specializes in Bug-type Pokémon.

What happened to my typing?! I meant an overly hilarious villain with an awesome battle theme. - HeavyDonkeyKong

I just got to his very first battle. An overly various theme with an awesome battle theme. - HeavyDonkeyKong

9 Archie

Especially after playing Alpha Sapphire. He is so darn friendly and actually ENCOURAGES you to try to stop him because he knows that you are just fighting for what you believe in! - HeavyDonkeyKong

10 N

Another very understandable, and relatable, Villain. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Sure, he wasn't really a bad guy - not when you compare him to his father. The reason why N was one of the strongest villains, however, was the fact that he was sensitive and innocent. As Anthea says in B/W, there is nothing more terrifying than innocence. N was raised in such a way that he only ever saw suffering. He thought he was doing the right thing.

While most of these leaders did what they did for power or for greed, N genuinely believed that what he did was right.

The Contenders

11 Colress

People say Colress memes are annoying. "However, I disagree." - HeavyDonkeyKong

12 Maxie

I would have put Maxie on here had it not been for the ten item limit. - HeavyDonkeyKong

13 Giovanni Giovanni

He looks like Donald Trump in this picture

14 Nuzleaf

From pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon. I was wondering if they were going to make him a bad guy just for shock value, but I never, EVER, even expected it to happen! Best reveal in the game! Best character in the game! - HeavyDonkeyKong


15 Dark Rust
16 Mewtwo

The worst character ever. So overrated.
