Top 10 Best Fully Evolved Starter Pokémon
My favorite final evolved starter ever and my second favorite Pokemon overall. It was a joy going through the game with Primarina and I always bring it with me in online battles and official competitions.
Primarina is better that mega blaziken because fairy is a really good type only having TWO weaknesses. It's handy against Hala and Acerola in the elite four. It has insane sp. attack which is awesome/ bbut combine that with Sparkling Aria and it does 110 damage. INSANITY.
Primarina is my fifth favorite pokemon, she needs more love. She gets bashed on everyday thanks to the god forsaken rowlet, a pokemon that deserves the death penalty
Swampert is really strong and it can learn a decent variety of moves to counter a lot of different types, like earthquake and hammer arm, which together, can counter 8 types. They are both good against steel and rock, so it's 8 not 10. Some idiot said Torterra could easily kill any starter pokemon, but honestly, it's one of the worst starters and is the slowest starter too. All the water type starters can learn Ice beam and fire, well has fire type moves. sure it may survive and land an earthquake or rock slide (for Charizard), but it is most likely going to lose. I'm sorry for those who love Torterra, but it's honestly not that good.
If you play ORAS, and you want to counter everybody? Pick Mudkip! Mudkip can counter the rock gym, marshtomp will take down the electric, fire, normal (with protect, since they use Slaking), and flying (with rock moves). Mega Swampert can take out the Psychic gym with surf since they are rock types. In Omega Ruby, the battles will be easier, since Primal Groudon's ability will let you take out the water gym. Together, they will defeat the Elite 4 and destroy Steven's team. Even without the super effectiveness, There is no major grass opponents (except for your rivals Sceptile). Also, Swampert has the highest base stats for any starter. Blaziken is my favorite starter, but stat wise, Swampert is my pick.
Typhlosion is just awesome! Even his name just sounds cool! And his design as well as its evolution family! And strong too! It should get a mega evolution
My first Pokémon was Cyndaquil. I have always been attached to Typhlosion, and I would consider it a better starter than all other starters even though it's only a single type.
Come on! He's the world champion for 2011!
Charizard is the best. Makes sense at second place though, because swampert has the best typing. Why do so many people complain that Charizard is overrated? Okay, okay, probably is a bit overrated, but if it had the best stats over the other two starters, bulbasaur and squirtle wouldn't stand a chance of being chosen as a starter. Even so, this dragon is still chosen most often out of gen 1. Stop complaining that Charizard is overrated and go thank the creators for nerfing it enough to give a little more love to that turtle that people pick for its cuteness, or that weird vegetable that people choose for no reason at all.
Charizard is one of my favourites aside from Charmander I don't understand why Charizard is fire/flying and not fire/dragon though since he literaly is a fire dragon.
While blastoise is said by many people to be the stronger starter of the kanto starters, charizard has proved this theory wrong many times both in the show and the games, also, charizard can learn many moves the most fire type Pokemon can not.
Fire - Fighting, has neutrality to stealth rock. Is extremely fast and can dish out some crazy high damage, especially if equipped with a choice band. Infernape manages to deal super-effective damage against both other final evolution starters in it's generation. Which is extremely impressive. Also it's faster than Blaziken so ggez.
The monkey is awesome and has good stats. I will say I started likening him a lot after the finals in the anime against electavire.
What about ground type
They have missed a lot of opportunity with Samurott when it comes to typing, movepool, and stats but I love him for his creative design and him overall. I don't see how a generic orange lizard can be more creative than a samurai shell-armored otter/sea lion who pulls swords out of his arms. You mess with Samurott, you mess with his double swords.
Come on, Oshawott I'd adorable, Dewott is, well, cute in its own way, and Samurott is pretty epic. In game, he's very good. Swords dance at least once and get ready to sweep. I actually use him on battle spot. He actually takes down a few opponents. A new strategy I came up with is: EV train 184 Special Defense EVs and 72 Defense EVs and 252 attack. The moveset is Substitute, Swords Dance, Aqua Jet, and Razor Shell or Megahorn, your choice. The item is salac berry. I'll give my Samurott this set soon, but he has beaten many foes on Pokémon Showdown with this set.
I hate it when people say typhlosion is the best starter, it's not even the best in Johto (Feraligatr is), and Typhlosion is probably one of the least detailed and most uncreative starters if you really think about it.
Its access to the, probably, best boosting move, dragon dance, makes it such a hard hitter combined with sheer force and a life orb, so even tough I think that are better starter pokemon, I noticed such a potential in this guy since his coverage, ice puch, is actually good combined with the sheer force, being probably the best user of a move kinda underrated. Superpower, Aqua Jet, Swords Dance and Earthquake are here too to make his opponents shiver.
My fourth favorite Pokemon (Croconaw is my 1st). This thing is usable in-game and competitively, and since the physical/special split in gen 4 it's become a real beast. It has coverage against almost everything and it can really make use of its hidden ability, sheer force.
Mega Blaziken is one of the toughest fully evolved starters in the game. The original Fire/Fighting and the toughest one. Should easily be a top 5 with Greninja, they are the only two starters in the Uber tier for competitive battling.
Blaziken is the best starter in my opinion, sure its shiny could've been better it is powerful and fast. It might have low defense but if it defeats it's opponent before he takes damage he's really good. So he is the best starter in my opinion
It's got speed boost, It got a mega form before the others of it's generation, It was the original fire/fighting type that all the others try to copy, it's mega form was in Uber tier, and it looks like an absolute badass.
Torterra is one of the strongest starters I've ever trained and it can beat fire and flying types as well. It beat every Pokemon except for Gym leader Candice's Abomasnow and some other quicker ice types such as Weavile.
This is my personal favourite design for any starter despite its lackluster competitive appearance. I may well be doused in nostalgia but how is a huge turtle with a tree on its back not cool?
Tor terra is definitely one of the most powerful Pokemon in diamond. I beat all of my opponents until I reached the ice gym with just my tor terra!
Greninja is my favorite Pokemon ever. Is it overrated? Probably. Why did Game Freak give it Ash-Greninja? I don't know. But is it a freaking awesome frog ninja that darts in and out of the shadows and can literally slice metal with its shurikens? Heck yeah.
Protein Greninja is unreal. Confuse your enemies by changing type and always hitting with STAB attacks. He is the fastest fully evolved starter so he will always attack first. He is also pretty badass looking... Should easily be top 5 in my opinion!
It does not need a mega stone and it has the highest bast stat only from its ability it has amazing special attack when ash greninja also amazing speed.
Emboar sucks SO BAD! Plus, another fire/fighting Pokemon. Not in my house! At least the other fire/fighting Pokemon are good and can kick ass. I mean, emboar lost to his pre evolution. He should definitely be lower!
This is the stupidest starter ever. The third fire-fighting starter IN A ROW, and he just sucks. Fighting type in general is terrible.
Why do people hate him so much? He's awesome! Besides his bad speed, he kicks ass! While Blaziken and Infernape are better competitively, they're so overused that using them just feels unoriginal and redundant. This guy is rad, and took me through unova in BW with no problems (didn't choose him for B2W2)
He's literally a hippo with tanks in his shell. He is super powerful and dominated all competition in leaf green. Why isn't he higher?
This boy is a living water tank he should be higher I mean come on he a darn tank make this guy hire in the list like top 3.
This guy's awesome. Too bad he lives in a region with such good Water-types.
Delphox isn't in the top 10? Better Nerf Greninja! Seriously though, Delphox is awesome and deserves more love than the chestnut and overrated ninja. I don't hate Greninja, he just is way too popular and Delphox is better.
A good starter,Delphox is overall a good starter pokemon. Making it a fire/psychic type making it not weak to bug types. Its weak to ground rock dark and ghost I chose it because it has so much special attack!
It can take down almost any Pokemon. Delphox is my star in competitive battles, it's so cool.
Empoleon is decent, I like the steel dual typing and it's overall pretty cool. Unlike the other idiot who commented here, I'm not gonna say that the shiny is the best starter colorations; it's actually probably one of the worst actually. For example, Charizard, Greninja, Delphox, Decidueye, heck, even Venusaur's is better than Empoleon.
I LOVE Penguins and this specific Penguin Matches pokemon sword for me, if I played pokemon legends Arkoos (Arceus) piplup would be the one I choose.
How the hell is this so far down? The only Steel-type final evolution of a Starter, & therefore has the most resistance to all of the typings, cutting 8 of them in half, 2 of them to a quarter strength, and 1 with completely no effect! Charizard is easily overrated (DUH, as one of the first Starters) and could easily be defeated by Empoleon with the wide variety of moves it can learn
Might I add, one of (if not the best) Shiny coloration of all Starters!
This guy is awesome. I won't say that it's "stronger than Swampert" like everyone else is saying, it only beats Swampert because it has the type advantage, but it's still really good.
What the heck, Sceptile should be much higher. Grass as a whole is definitely weaker than Fire and Water, but Sceptile learns awesome moves and is one of the fastest grass types
He has one of the highest stats for starters. He has a amazing mega. And he can do some damage.
Why is Serperior so low?! It has everything someone would want, beautiful, strong eyes, body structure, and color. It also has some pretty good moves! It could at least be in the top 5.
I don't know why serperior is this low. It should be at least 3rd place. Contrary + Leaf Storm + Other moves (Dragon Pulse/Hidden Power Fire/Giga Drain) is honestly overpowered as hell and is only countered by like...heatran. It sweeps pretty much everything else. I've 1HKOd a Charizard with this thing.
It can learn leaf blade and leaf storm. This can beat the swampert over there that is now 2nd place and now this serperior is 12th place?! The snivy in the anime can beat Ash's pikachu that has fought from Kalos, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh! This pikachu must be like level 100 or even more! But the pikachu getting beaten up by a level 5 snivy? come on! Plus, if this super strong snivy has evolved to a serperior, that means it can be 10 times stronger than Ash's pikachu! VOTE FOR SERPERIOR!
Honestly Chesnaught needs some love. He has a cool design and pretty good attacks.
How is Chesnaught here? He's a beast! How is Typhlosion in no. 3? He sucks!
Such a cool design.. Truly underrated
He is a powerful and loving guy, I don't get why we need to hate him, 2 legs, fire (lookin like a fightin but NOT) or he is bipedal, why hate him?! Aren't ALL fire startes like this?!
Litten is my starter on Pokemon Brink Bronze (a ROBLOX game not a real pokemon game) but Popplio is my starter on Pokemon Moon and I love it so much!
Team Litten For Life! Kellan the Incineroar is pretty much Impossible to beat! He has brought me a lot of new memories! thanks!
What the hell, why is this thing so low
Mega Venusaur can tank both Charizard and Blastoise and Venusaur has the most original design of the three.! A DRAGON! ! A TURTLE! (Didn't mean that Blastoise, you're cool too, but Charizard's stupid and overrated)
Venusaur is very strong and should be ranked much higher than this
Meganium is really good. It acually one-shots every pokemon I battle in my pokemon games. It evolves pretty fast, too.
Meganium is a majestic Pokemon that I think looks cool.
Now THIS one is very detailed and I believe this pokemon has a hisuian form. I like the colors I like birds, This is a big like and subsribe for me.
This was my original Rowlet and I was really suprised when it turned to Grass/Ghost typing! This is the best best if you make it evolve during the Melemele Island trials because it is immune to Normal/Fighting type attacks. Vote Decidueye up to #1!
Decidueye is super underrated, its archer design is so cool.
Cinderace is definitely one of my favorite, if not my favorite, Pokemon. Certainly the best starter in the Galar region. Pyro Ball severely weakens Grass types and it's kind of an overpowered move.
Cinderace is a pretty decent pokemon, not my favorite ever but it's probably my favorite Galar starter.
She looks nice. She should be higher!
Raichu is underrated, it can use hyper beam. If it learn quick attacks before evolving in Raichu, it can wreck PIkachu once got hyper beamed to the face by a Raichu. The only reason Pikachu has beaten Raichu is becuase it was slow. Raichu also has many advantages from evolving, like advanced hearing (which I just found out) and a longer tail.
This comment is for the person who put (Raichu isn't even a starter evolution! ) if you ever played pokemon yellow the only pokemon you start with is a pikachu then you get a thunderstone plus a little trading back an forth of the same starting pikachu then it'll take the stupid stone then you have the raichu which I might add can one shot a charizard, blastoise, an some of the others on the top of the list
Raichu technically isn't a starter. In the video games, you can only catch Pikachu and Pichu, not start with them.
