Top 10 Pokemon with the Highest Special Defense Stats

Pokemon with the highest special defense. I hope you find this list helpful.

The Top Ten

1 Shuckle (230) Shuckle, known in Japan as Tsubotsubo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

While it's not the best offensively, it's certainly the best in both defense and special defense. I suggest having it hold leftovers with a moveset consisting of rest, toxic, swagger, a weather based move such as Sandstorm, and a move that prevents your opponent from switching Pokemon if one is available. The leftovers and Rest can help you stall when they are taking damage from poison and Sandstorm, and the move that disables the target from switching also helps. Now get out there and annoy the heck out of people!

Not a fan of this Pokemon, but it's defense is crazy. It can be a pain to defeat in a battle.

Agree my oppent had nothing but shuckle one time in a pokeon battle it took me 2 hours to beat him

2 Regice (200) Regice is a legendary Pokemon and part of the Regi trio. According to scientific research its body is made entirely of Antarctic ice during an ice age. It is said to always control frigid air of minus 328 degrees F. ...read more.

I suggest a moveset that covers a lot of it's weaknesses, with moves such as focus blast, bulldoze, and blizzard as a stab move. I'm not sure what item I'd give it though, maybe a Life Orb, considering it's a pretty decent Special Attacker as well. Alternatively, you could give it hail, clear/ice body and leftovers, so that way you can easily gain HP back or your stats won't be reduced.

3 Kyogre (160) Kyogre, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Ice Beam (for grass and dragon types), Earthquake (electric types), Calm Mind (, and Hydro Pump/Surf for STAB (Hydro Pump is more powerful, but Surf is more reliable). I don't know what to use for an item, maybe a Quick Claw to get more kills. You can give it Drizzle as it's ability to increase the power of Hydro Pump/Surf. Actually, I think that a Blue Orb would be a better item, because it will take on a more powerful form, potentially getting you more kills than a Quick Claw.

4 Deoxys Defense Form (160)

Psychic (STAB)
Toxic
Recover (For regaining health, you won't have to use it a lot considering it's Special Defense and Defense stats are so high)
Cosmic Power (To increase Special Defense even higher and increase the power of Psychic)
Item = Leftovers (Again, for regaining health, is very useful because it's very hard to take down)
Ability = Pressure (only ability, unfortunately)

5 Lugia (154) Lugia, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Aeroblast (Nice STAB move with a good chance of a critical hit)
Toxic (Easy kills)
Calm Mind/Recover (Calm Mind for increasing power of Aeroblast, Recover
Ice Beam (Covers Dragon, Grass, Flying, Rock, and Bug)
Item: Red Card (in case Lugia is hit by a very powerful move, use recover after)

Ability: Multiscale (Halves damage taken by a move when it's at full health, allowing Lugia to survive a very powerful move)

6 Ho-oh (154) Ho-Oh, known in Japan as Houou, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Flamethrower (Great accuracy, has a chance to burn, and has good power as well)
Earth Power (Covers Rock and Electric types)
Toxic
Roost (Might have to use it a lot because of the Life Orb)
Item = Life Orb (increases power of moves, with the cost of losing HP)
Ability = I don't know

Stone Edge (ultimate STAB)
Toxic (For potentially poisoning an entire team? )
Magnet Rise (Makes Ground Type moves, which are 4x strong against Probopass, ineffective.)
Item: Leftovers (You know why.)
