Top 10 Best Fighting Type Pokemon

Who do you think is the best fighting or fighting/other Pokemon?
The Top Ten
1 Lucario Lucario is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Lucario first appeared as a central character in the film Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and later appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and subsequent sequels, also appearing in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated and printed adaptations of the franchise.

Lucario is amazing! He is my favorite pokemon and the best pokemon ever in the whole world! He should get a lot more attention on these lists!

It's true, lucario is an awesome Pokemon and everyone loves it or has it. Cynthia has a lucario as well as most decent fighting type trainers. It has an amazing aura sensing talent and can mega evolve into a beast! With high speed and attack, lucario can learn all sorts of moves from close combat to aura sphere! A true fighting type Pokemon and a powerful team member!

Lucario is very loyal in the movie and a super good Pokemon in the game. He has a high attack, special attack, and speed, so mine always goes first because it's so fast. It also looks awesome and it's mega evolution looks even more awesome. And when it's shiny it's yellow so a shiny Lucario using aura sphere looks like a Super Saiyan using a Kamehameha.

Lucario is the best Pokemon! I never have a team without him. He's won me a lot of battle and even when our backs are pressed against the wall and we look like we're doomed, Lucario pulls through and wins! Seriously I've had things which should of killed me and Lucario just gets through it like its nothing! The best Pokemon in my opinion.

2 Blaziken Blaziken, known in Japan as Bashāmo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Blaziken is the first Fire-Fighting starter together with the 2 other starters from Hoenn, This is probably one of the best pokemon. Sure infernape has more speed but can it Mega Evolve? I think not.. this shows blaziken shoukd be number 1. Lucario seems to also be a good match-up for him but he can learn flare blitz and it can 2 shot a Lucario in mega form..

Blaziken is a fighting force that can destroy. Period. Fire, Fighting, Flying, and Normal learns can decimate anything it comes against. Blaziken is fast and powerful and with the right moves will slaughter anything that stands in its way.

Blaziken is so O.P. ! He is definitely one of my favourite Pokemon ever. His ATK And Sp. ATK are really good. It also has a pretty decent move pool. It may not be one of the fastest Pokemon but is hidden ability is speed boost which is good enough! I also recommend hitmonlee, primeape and Infernape. I still do like most fighting types!

Well I mean, speed boost is insanely good. if you get a flinch it's a free boost to the already decent speed, and its mega evolution can be used in high competitive battling, thanks to its amazing ability.

3 Infernape Infernape, known in Japan as Goukazaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Well, lets compare first. Blaziken has lower speed, but it's hidden ability is speed boost. That and Swords dance make a great combo. It also learns awesome moves such as Brave Bird, Flare Blitz, and Hi Jump Kick. It has rather good special attack too, so Overheat is a good idea. Don't forget Stone Edge and Earthquake, which do a lot of damage. Now for Infernape. Infernape has much better speed, and the hidden ability Iron Fist, which powers up Mach Punch, the elemental punches, and Close Combat. It is a good sub-puncher (substitute and Focus Punch) and knows Fake Out. Life Orb + Close Combat + Flare Blitz + Stone Edge/Earthquake makes a good sweeper. It can also learn Acrobatics and U-turn. Okay, comparing is over, and the Pokemon I pick is... Infernape! With great Attack and Speed, it would be a great addition to your team. I hope this helps! -Jellohamster

Looks as badass as it gets. A Flaming armoured chimp. He's fast,hits hard has one of the best abilities that make him hit with close combat and the elemental punches harder than near anyone. If Fire punch,Electric punch dragonite can sweep teams,infernape will destroy lives and force retirement. When I first saw this guy in game and on anime I was so impressed. My first thought was "maybe they aren't running outof ideas after all "infernape is monkey magic.

Overall my favorite Pokemon of all time! My very first Pokemon ever! His moves are the best! He can take almost anything out with his close combat and blast burn. Not to mention he looks cool too, I mean his head is on fire!

Infernape is a monkey on fire. he can learn moves like dig and acrobatics which makes him better that any fighting type. I know that Blaziken learns moves like brave bird but it does recoil damage. Infernape is faster and his ability is iron fist and blaze.
PS: Blaziken's head is too small for his body and learns very bad fighting type moves

4 Machamp Machamp, known in Japan as Kairiky, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

In case you haven't read the Pokedex mountain entry, this guy can lift mountains with a single hand. In addition to that, he can punch 1,000 times in 2 seconds. That's each arm punching 150 mountains away per second, assuming 500 mountains were flying at him every second. Mountain punching abilities aside, he learns Dynamic Punch which hits for 150 damage (thanks to STAB) and confuses the target, as well as learning Cross Chop before Lucario learns Close Combat. However, the Superpower Pokemon (yes, that's really what he's called) has his drawbacks: stats. His total stats are a mere 505, not bad compared to some other Pokemon (rattata, I'm talking about you), but compared to Lucario's 225 and Blaziken's 230, you can really begin to see his weakness. However, Machamp is by no means a weak Pokemon, and he would kick Lucario's butt due to Lucario being part steel type.

Lucario is so overrated! I think that Machamp should be number 1, because his ability No Guard is awesome for Dynamic Punch, which always confuses the target if it hits. And Machamp is just awesome... He is the best hugger of all time, whether comfortable or not. Also, he is a master at every martial art, for crying out load! Mess with him, and you're dead! Plus, his pokedex entry in Diamond is: 'It punches with its four arms at blinding speed. It can launch 1,000 punches in two seconds. ' How could Lucario be better than Machamp?

Machamp is the clear cut choice. As another person has already stated, his Dynamic Punch is one of the best moves you could possibly use, it's 150 power that hits automatically. Machamp has a great attack stat, and doesn't lack in defense either, Flying types are no match for Rock Slide. Machamp, in comparison, other fighting types are Machump.

Machamp is my pick because he's machamp! He has a monstrous attack stat, there's the no guard ability making dynamic punch impossible to miss, then there's moves like cross chop which has great power and a high crit ratio! Now besides attack and moves, machamp might be a slow pokemon, but it's decently bulky unlike lucario.

5 Gallade Gallade, known in Japan as Erureido, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Do I need to say this? Gallade is so cool with those two arm blades, It movepool can counter any typing and also have powerful moves like close combat. It was even cooler when it was given a mega evolution. Mega gallade can extend its arm blades and was seen fighting a diancie. I wish it was given a sword move like sacred sword or heck a signature sword move.

Gallade if used properly could be the strongest fighting type Pokemon. The first reason of this is he is part psychic. By having this typing, it could be hard for his fighting type opponent to beat him due to any psychic moves. The second reason would be his blades. Due to having blades for arms he can learn an array of slashing moves. The knight can also counter all of his fighting foes. Having trouble with Fire-fighters, teach him stone edge, Grass-fighters, send them sky high with air slash, Steel/Dark-fighters, close combat to destroy them, and for just plain fighters, they'll be running from psychic/psycho cut. The swordsman is cunning and smart, using attack and speed to his advantage along with special attack. After this fighter his mega evolved white knight, his stats increase making him hard to catch and defend against. This is why the fighter of blades is the possible best in the fighting league.

He's six things rolled into one to have an awesome persona. A Psychic, a Knight, a Ninja, a Swordsman, Master Martial Artist and a Super Hero all rolled into one. He has no mega stone though, which is just not fair at all.

My only real problem with him is his physical frailty. I love using him, but I'm not very good in making him durable. Any suggestions?

I'm not lying when I say this gallades move pool can counter any typing [maybe not ghost dark but that's only 2 Pokemon] even fairies with poison jab. It's stats are exactly gardevoir's but spec attack and attack switched. It can utilize stat moves like bulk up and swords dance. It's mega has a cape like gardevoir but cooler. He wears a gladiator helmet. His mega fights a fairy rock with a diamond sword. He went solo into the sinnoh elite 4 and the champion and won! When the rest of my team died in victory road in my nuzlocke. His attack is higher the God of Pokemon. I bet a grindstone follows him around sharpening his ELBOW BLADES. He has 3 different blades to utterly kill your team. He helped Wally conquer bronchitis and metal doubts. He on the best exploration team in the world. OU was so afraid of him they had to put him in RU. He would kindly die to save you.

6 Heracross Heracross, known in Japan as Heracros, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Always smiles and if you give it a choice band, I think he gets 25% more attack. His attack itself is whopping good! And its hidden ability moxie, nothing to mess around with

Heracross! He is awesome! Always have him on my team, did a lot for ash in the Pokemon league. His Megahorn is a move to recon with!

He's the only Pokemon that can defeat Whitney without a problem, therefore he is absolutely amazing.

I love heracross! If I could decide which is better out of Pinsir, Heracross and Scyther I would definitely choose heracross!

7 Hitmonlee

Hitmonlee I'd have to say is probably the best fighting type. It's kicking moves are beast. Take mega for example: it's power is like 130. Also it can learn blaze kick that all the blaziken fans like so much. And if you don't like its accuracy then teach it mind reader. Hitmonlee could use a boost with defense and HP but other wise, it's really well built. I like infernape too

When I saw this guy, I knew he was awesome, much better than hitmonchan, but there is one problem with lee, he doesn't have that much fighting moves besides hi jump kick, brick break, reversal, and a couple other moves. He can still learn other great moves like earthquake, and rock slide.

I personally really love this Pokemon. I don't like fighting, but this an exception. Though, I'd like it more if it didn't look like a potato. Still awesome.

What is not to love about Hitmonlee! He has an amazing ATK and a good special defense to resist psychic type moves. It also has a good move pool. He also looks awesome and has great taekwondo skill!

8 Hawlucha Hawlucha, known in Japan as Luchabull, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

So many ways you can use this thing. Personally, I use Power Herb + Sky Attack + Acrobatics, along with Me First and Flying Press. for the other moves. So many teams have been swept with this thing, and is my personal favorite Fighting type.

I always loved Hawlucha when it first came out and its attack stat along with its signature move makes it quite powerful, Hawlucha for the win!

A Pokemon owned by Ash not in the Top Tens? Well I think he is really high rated because he's Top 15 in the Top 20's!

Hawlucha had been nicknamed 'Forest Champion' when he was not with Ash. He defeated anyone one on one.

9 Poliwrath Poliwrath, known in Japan as Nyorobon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Poliwrath, the Tadpole Pokemon, and 1 of the 2 evolved forms of Poliwhirl. Burly and muscular, Poliwrath can exercise for hours without getting tired. It swims effortlessly through the ocean.
Now look, if I went to fitness and I saw a Poliwrath there, I'd just be sure it'd would get up kiloliters of sweat (ewww! )

Can also take down fire and ground types. Amazing Pokemon to tank with and soak up hits. Worth having on almost any team

He swept an entire team with power up punch waterfall brick break and earthquake!

Sure tadpole got a lot of weaknesses but teach it Waterfall and you're good!

10 Hitmonchan

Hitmonchan is the best of the 3. With a high base attack stat and high base sp defense he can take a hit. Speed isn't high, but who needs speed when you can just prioritise with bullet punch and mach punch. Learns fake out and has high move coverage

Best fighting tank ever, mine has tanked moon blast and psychic!

I always picked this one in Blue, so it has my vote.

The definition of the fighting type.

The Contenders
11 Hariyama

This pokemon is great. Used him throughout my Gen III playthrough. Earliest fight pokemon in the game, and by the far the most worthwhile in the game. Machop is found roughly halfway through the playthrough, but by this time most people would have a pretty well established team. Hariyama may not the be the best fighting pokemon ever, but it surely is a lot better than most of the contenders out there.

Hariyama was the only pokemon that could learn force palm (I think) until Lucario strolled along. He's awesome though, and has strong defences that are hard to destroy without a type advantage.

Similar to Tsareena, I am kinda bothered by the lack of visible mouth. Kinda awkward when I feed him poke beans... But I still love him anyways!

His shiny is pretty cool (at least in my opinion) Hariyama did help me out quite a bit.

12 Primeape

Come on guys this is the original fighting type Pokemon. Everyone has used him. He was and still is a beast

Primeape has been a favorite fighting for a long time, definitely a beast.

This nostalgic fighter will always be a favorite, from the awesome Mankey till the beast Primape.

Yup! The powerhouse of the fighters...

13 Breloom Breloom, known in Japan as Kinogassa, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Have you seen its attack stat? It's one of the best in any game, and if you teach it sky uppercut or close combat and seed bomb plus a rock move to cover weaknesses and one more move (I would suggest iron tail) you're Breloom will destroy everything in sight. Not to mention its ability which puts opponents with physical attacks sometimes to sleep or paralyzed or poisoned. Breloom wins. No questions

With technician and Mach punch, Breloom, who has the same attack stat as machamp, can break most stalls, overpower most sweepers, and eliminate squishes like nobody's business. Poison heal Breloom can even stop most status killer teams, and still packs a hefty punch with the substitute focus punch combo.

Breloom is the best Pokemon if you know how to use him. He is not to be messed with and if you think you can beat Breloom think again. He can learn moves that cover all his weaknesses and with the right nature, can max the speed stat so that he is almost certain to attack first. (Unless you using a ninjask or something)

It's speed isn't anything special, and it's grass typing makes flying moves a nightmare; but awesome, since it's a grass type that can take down Ice types. It's Attack is incredible (in your face, Lucario), so I always have a Breloom on my team when I play Emerald.

14 Conkeldurr

Conkeldurr needs to be in the top 10. This guy's attack stat is huge and can crush many would be counters with its good coverage moves. It is also very bulky and defensive, especially with an assault vest. Trying to cripple Conkeldurr with will-o-wisp is quite risky because it may activate a guts boost and make Conkeldurr even more terrifying. So unless you hit it with a substantial super effective hit, good luck taking this guy down. Don't clown around with Conkeldurr, otherwise it will be the one laughing in the presence of your destroyed team.

Same base stats total as Machamp (505) and better moves ( Focus Punch and Superpower). Not to mention his ability Iron Fist, which will boost Focus Punch to even stronger, this guy wrecks your face off. So, to review:
Focus Punch power: 150.
Add STAB: 225.
Iron Fist gives it +20% so 225+45=270
So basically, if he doesn't get hit during the power up phase, you're dead.

Conkeldurr is one of my favourite Pokemon of all times. It has such a cool design its like a clown learnt karate and used it with cement rocks! Awesome! Also in the anime, this guy is a construction worker along with Warthog, so its useful in many ways and very strong!

Conkeldurr is one of the best fighting types. It has amazing Hp and Attack stats and with an assault best it can be a specially defensive beast.
It's 3 abilities are great and they increase its power even more (even giving it an immunity to being burned).
It's moveset is really good (granting him great coverage) and even though it's a slow pkmn, mach punch gives it an amazing priority attack.
Conkeldurr deserves to be in the top 10 or even more.

15 Toxicroak

What are you doing Toxicroak? Get up in the top ten! Steel is no longer a threat to him because of fighting, and he was the only pokemon I use in the new Fairy gym. The only types you have to watch out for are flying and phychic. Lucario makes a close second for me though.

Looks way better than poliwrath and could cream him... why is he up there but not toxicroak? Don't you guys know anything?

Dry skin, fast Pokemon, makes water types completly useless against it, plus it is a boss against the fairy type gym.

Psychic types are no match for his sucker punch.

16 Pangoro

This guy maybe slow, but it have great type combination, fighting and dark (keep this away from fairy type though) and sadly, this Pokemon is weak againts its own type (fighting). don't have to worry about psychic types because it will have no effect! Not to mention its great base attack (124) and with its awesome ability mold breaker, it can hit anything! First time I know this Pokemon, I immediately want one!

Pangoro is one of the most laziest Pokemon designs ever, notice how this guy was made after Kung Fu Panda, Karate Panda, War Bear, Little Panda Fighter and Chop Kick Karate Panda were made. Clearly game freak ran out of designs and just used designs that had already been made several times. Good job, Game freak. But other than that it's a good Pokemon

Dark and fighting makes this guy a extreme powerhouse. Even though it looks heavy... It is able to learn high jump kick and that did a one hit KO on Lapras and Metagross! Dark type makes him immune to physic. It's a must have Pokemon throughout the game. Come on guys. We know he deserves it. Clap Clap Clap. Go Grumpy panda!

Yes, I know, he's already in the list, but he should be in it twice!

17 Hitmontop

I would have vote for lucario, but he was already number 1. Hitmontop has the best design of the 3 hitmons. Also his stats are more equal, or at least to evlove a tyrogue the attack and defense have to be equal. This means it is more balanced than the other to. Also I like this one more. Should be higet than the hitmons, sawk, primape, and poliwrath.

Great pokemon with the use of Counter and Rolling Kick.

Hitmontop is my favorite fighting type Pokemon.

I want him so bad! I want this thing on my team!

18 Chesnaught Chesnaught, known in Japan as Brigarron, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It has the same base stats total as Blaziken (530) and so is second in stats only to Infernape on the top ten. He's better than Blaziken though, this is the move set I suggest:
Wood Hammer (120 damage)
Hammer Arm (100 damage
Spiky Shield (u mad, physical attacks? )
And one more move of whatever you want.

He is really cool looking not just that he is really strong he has five weaknesses that's not really good but even though one of his weaknesses is fire he can still win with his fight moves. The only problem I have with Chesnaught is that he can only learn a few fight type moves

He's terrifyingly ugly. I'm glad I didn't choose Chespin because I would be stuck cursed with this hideous monster. Thank goodness Pokemon isn't real...

Chesnaught is so op it can learn spiky shield which protects him and deals damage to Pokemon that do physical contact.

19 Virizion Virizion, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Sacred Sword is an amazing attack with a lot of power. The Grass type allows it to deal with water Pokemon as well.

Wrecks iris hydreigon

20 Mienshao

This guy's amazing! Drain Punch, High Jump Kick, Jump Kick, and not to mention Lucario's signature move Aura Sphere, this guy just wrecks face, should be number 2, not 48!

Mienshao is an absolute beast.
Amazing attack and speed. Fake out + Hi jump Kick makes a joke of Sturdy Pokemon.
Add to that U-turn + its ability ' Regenerator ', he can destroy psychic types and return home safely.
Aerial Ace as the last move, and u've got a powerful sweeper with insane coverage.

Possibly the most underrated fighting type pokemon. Should be in the top 10, at least competetively. High jump kick with great stats coupled with two great abilities in regenetator and reckless make this a dominant choice scarf/ life orb sweeper in UU. by the way mienfoo is also excellent in little cup as a choice scarf pivot.

I love my shiny Mienshao. You turn + regenerator is great. Hi jump kick for stab. Aura sphere with black belt because his so atk isn't great makes it better plus it never misses. And I have swords dance of course. Best fighting type

21 Riolu Riolu, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Come on show Riolu some love. though I like Lucario better to be honest

22 Throh

Judo! If you ever train in it and see the legends from the art ; Jigoro Kano (creator), Masahiko Kimura, Ronda Rousey ( not a fan), Gene Label, and watch how they slam each other following up with ground game. Its such a great art. Throh deserves to be higher based on just the art he reps. OSS

Judo! That's all I have to say

23 Sawk

Awesome stats! With adamant nature this Pokemon is unstopable! You can get him early at the 2nd gym town. This really helps people who played Pokemon without cheats! Because they already have a Pokemon with good stats at early game. And this guy got brick break at level 29, WOW! With this Pokemon Godlike attack and not bad speed, sawk should be in the top 10. This sweeper is too OP for early gyms and you can get this guy at the town where the second gym at, this Pokemon will obviously make the game easier for you!

This Pokemon is totally meant for fighting and its gotta be the best...!

You this Pokemons karate moves (especially the karate chop)... He will knock out any Pokemon in its way...!

Personally... I'm a fan... And you should too..!

My fave Pokemon, it wrecks unprepared teams with some boosts, after 1/2 bulk ups, any team would bow to this beast.

I think he's very cool and strong, but why is he before
Hawlucha? In one of the episodes of Poke'mon he got defeated by Hawlucha. But I still think he's cool either way.

24 Emboar Emboar, known in Japan as Enbuoh, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Emboar should at least be in the top 10 not 20. Having a large variety of moves in his move pool and has strong attack and lots of HP. Poison, rock, thunder, it's move pool can take out all of its weaknesses. Put any other Pokemon in the fight, emboar comes out on top.

Best Pokemon Ever should be at least 5th
such a god with a god attack stat and great health and he looks like a beast!

Emboar is so cool if you hate him then clearly you're a genwunner because you're missing out on how cool he is!

Hey look another fire fighting type. But this one is the worst of the 3

25 Scrafty

Scrafty is my absolute favorite Pokemon (fighting is my favorite type). With his dark typing giving him immunity to psychic attacks, it's excellent move-pool allowing him access to excellent moves like Ice-Punch or Dragon Dance. When combo'd with his ability, Moxie, Scrafty has the potential to sweep entire teams almost effortlessly. Not to mention he has pretty good defense. Especially considering he's a sweeper.

Scrafty is one of the best Pokemon there are! Mine took out the elite four and can take out one of the members all by himself. He has a REALLY good move pool and can smash almost every Pokemon. His dual types make him a really strong Pokemon. Even my cousin is afraid of him and he has been playing for longer than I have.

Scrafty should at least be in top 10. Speed is it's only problem. Spark doesn't matter cause he learns physical moves anyway. Great definitely and speed and good attack. With an ability like Moxie Scrafty becomes AMAZING.

Why is Scrafty so low.. Pokemon that aren't even fighting type are over him.. Scrafty is my favorite fighting type and wrecks ass on the battle field with his defenses and moxie.
